How To Dress For A Date With An Environmentalist (In Eco-Friendly Clothes That You'll Actually Wear)

Gotta love those environmentalists: so good, so aware, so responsible. And if you're going on a date with one–like I did recently, no lie–you'd better be ready to defend your green creds. There's no easier way to practice sustainability than to wear it. Here, SheFinds shows you how to prepare for your date so that you show up looking sexy, stylish, and absolutely righteous.


Toggery just released a gorgeous fall collection of all-organic dresses, tops, and jackets in rich colors. And they're softer than you could possibly imagine, made of innovative new fabrics like bamboo and micro modal. We loved this Chloe Cowl Dress ($92), which falls beautifully over the body (Toggery puts special emphasis on fit) and has stylish 3/4-length sleeves. Or top a little black dress with this burnt orange Halrow Cropped Jacket ($149).

Simple, elegant clothes demand big, funky accessories like this Verderocks gold bracelet ($140) and Rachel Essex recylced chain necklace ($120) from They're all ethcial, recycled, vintage, or otherwise sustainable pieces. 


I saw a handbag by Vegan Queen at a green fashion show last year, and couldn't believe it wasn't leather. This small bowling bag ($695) boasts antique brass details and Louis Vuitton-style embossing, and is the perfect complement to your stylish – and 100% sustainable – outfit.

So when your eco-crusading date details all of his proud achievements, you just let him know that you're the greenest and best-dressed gal in the room.
