Have you got an invite to a party, or are you planning to host your own weekend soirée? Then a perfect party outfit is a must to dazzle the crowd! However, considering the wide variety of options out there made out of harmful chemicals and materials and the fashion industry’s enormous waste problem, it’s a tough task to find something that is both good for you and the environment and to shop sustainably.
But fret not! We are here to help you pick out the best party dresses from a range of slow fashion brands that craft their ensembles with great love and care for the planet, which you’ll cherish forever. Here’s our lineup of sustainable choices we hope you’ll love!
The little black dress has always been a timeless piece in everyone’s wardrobe, as it’s perfectly chic and versatile. It can be styled and accessorized in your own favorite way, and this dress does exactly that with a unique touch! The Laurie Dress comes with ruffled sleeves along with side pockets and gathered panels, making it a class apart from the usual LBDs. It is a part of a limited edition collection upcycled and transformed from good quality factory waste, which includes post-production waste, rejected shipments, and deadstock.
Amp up your style quotient with the stunning Parker One Shoulder Dress in vibrant fuchsia crafted from vegan silk. It features delicate abstract prints resembling multi-hued feathers with a shoulder-baring look and floor-sweeping length to make a power statement on special occasions. It has a side zipper and a drape on the shoulder, and you can style this piece with your favorite pair of gold earrings, a neckpiece, and a hair bun, a look synonymous with ‘empowered femininity’.
The blazer with pants is a sophisticated closet combination that’s always a winner with its utmost comfort and style. This set is perfect for making a statement comprising a structured cropped jacket with an asymmetrical hem, a tie at the back, and front pockets. It pairs perfectly well with the matching wide-leg pants featuring double pleats and inseam pockets. The pantsuit is made from orange fiber fabric (98% orange peel, 2% elastane), which gives it an elegant sheen.
Embrace the beautiful and eccentric mindfully made designs from the past, which are rare and have a story to tell. The Harriet Tunic is a one-of-a-kind retro piece that features a unique ombre baroque print all over it. The looped button detailing accentuates the intricate design giving the full-sleeved tunic an elegant look. It pairs beautifully with a high-waisted culotte and strappy heels for a perfect party ensemble.
Stand out in the crowd by adding a bold and fabulous shade of red to your ensemble. The June Top is an effortlessly chic and easy-to-wear sleeveless top with drop shoulders and a cape at the back. It features a slightly oversized fit, a round neck with a keyhole opening at the back, and a hand-embroidered belt to complete the glamorous look. It is crafted from luxurious linen satin and can be paired with matching narrow-fit trousers as a co-ord set or your favorite pair of pants for a stunning contrast.
