I have a new favorite organic fashion obsession: organic cotton dresses from Synergy Clothing!
Disclosure: I own a couple of organic fashion pieces from Synergy Clothing: one dress that I bought myself a couple of years ago and one that I won in a giveaway at The Good Human earlier this summer.
Organic clothing can seem a little bit out of reach. So many organic pieces cost hundreds of dollars, and let’s be honest here: a $250 day dress just isn’t in everyone’s fashion budget. It does make sense that organic clothing would cost more. Sustainable farming tends to be a little pricier for the farmer, so organic cotton is a bit pricier than conventional cotton. That cost gets passed on to the consumer. The thing is, while organic fabric does cost more than conventional fabric, it doesn’t cost that much more. It can, but it doesn’t have to, especially if you’re buying in bulk.
Why Choose Organic Fashion?
I’ll be honest here: you’re going to pay more for a dress from Synergy than you will for something you got at Forever 21. What you have to keep in mind is that these pieces are produced a lot differently. At Forever 21, you’re buying a made in China garment using dirty conventional cotton that’s probably only going to last you a couple of seasons before it pills, falls apart, or just goes out of style. What Synergy makes is heirloom organic fashion. Heirloom pieces are ones that are meant to last. They are well-constructed, so they don’t start to pill or fall to pieces with washing and wear. And the cuts are classic, so they will be a treasured part of your wardrobe for years and years.
Synergy’s clothing is more than just well-made and ethical. It is freaking gorgeous! Seriously, I want every single piece on their site. I love both of the dresses that I have, and I’m ogling a couple of the others, like the Striped Tank Panel Dress pictured to the right.
On top of gorgeous dresses, Synergy makes beautiful organic tops, skirts, and yoga gear. You can check out their full line of organic fashion on their website.
