4 Sustainable Ren-Faire Statement Outfits for Fall

Renaissance style to street style. The main elements designers have used from the middle ages are ruffled necks, puffed sleeves, and Juliet sleeves. These four looks are taking the elements of the trend and finding them in sustainable brands. Which look is your favorite?

Look #1 

Heading into fashion week for fall 2019, this is really the look I want to wear. I love the clash of colors and the mix of prints you get from the top and the bag. 

Emily Levine Bag– Made with handcrafted wood and natural dyes.

Maggie Marilyn Skirt– Made locally in New Zealand with ethically produced silk.

LaDoubleJ Shirt– Made from deadstock fabric.

Brother Vellies Boots– Handmade in South Africa, Kenya, and Morocco using traditional techniques, local materials, and deadstock leathers.

Pamela Love Earrings– Made in NYC using responsible sourcing and recycled metals when possible.

Chantecaille Palette– Every purchase donates to Rainforest Alliance.

Eir NYC Sunscreen Stick– Made with reef-friendly zinc oxide and a sustainable package.

Look #2 

This look is like ren-faire for the office, but maybe a fictional office? It is still inspired by ren-faire, but the specific renaissance vibe is more muted. It is more in the tiny details like the puffy sleeves and corset details. 

Material Skirt– Made with vegan leather.

Rizma Bag– Hand Dyed and hand-loomed by traditional artisans.

Silvia Furmanovich Earrings– Made with sustainably sourced reclaimed wood from the Amazon.

By Far Boots– Handmade in Bulgaria with deadstock leather.

This ren-faire look is another fashion week, wish I could wear outfit. In other words, definitely wish it was in my closet. 

Rise Art and Design Sunglasses– Made with recycled polycarbonate.

Nak Armstrong– Earrings made with recycled metals.

Jiri Kalfar Skirt and Top– The skirt is made from upcycled velvet curtains and the top is made with wool sustainably in Portugal.

Look #4 

Florals for fall might not be as groundbreaking as florals for spring, but they still look really nice. The fall aspects of the look come out in the deeper purple, plus all the black.
