Recently Greta Eagan, who is an eco fashion expert (more on that below), had an event to attend, and in putting her outfit together, realized that every part of it was sustainable, down to her nail polish! (That happens once you’ve been into eco fashion for a bit – a great look comes together and you realize it’s all green.) She deemed the above not only comfortable, but it made her feel confident, even though it’s not crazy dressy. “The art of casual dressing, really is just that… an art! It is a delicate balance between designed pieces and comfortable fabrics,” Greta says.
She filled us in on how it all came together: “While attending the Wing Tip It launch party in the Meatpacking last week, I found a tee in Vince that is made of 50% modal (beech wood pulp, a sustainable fiber). I love the cut and knew it would go perfectly with my Stewart + Brown organic cotton cargo pants. Finally, I slipped on my favorite Allison Wedges from Cri de Coeur and viola- an eco-fabulous outfit for the weekend!
