Gina Pell's Top Eco- Picks for Summer Style1. Coclico Chispa Tiger Sandal
Au courant but not overly trendy, these platform sandals evoke what I love about '70s style. I could easily see these paired with a contrasting, color blocked maxi skirt.

2. Tamasyn Gambell Electric Square Scarf
Anyone that's a fan of collecting Hermes silk scarves should take note of designer Tamasyn Gambell. Her recycled scarves are incredibly modern, but made of reclaimed accessories whose prints she updates with a unique printing process.

3. Noon Solar Linden Tote
Made of chemical-free leather and antique brass hardware, this naturally dyed tote features a kaleidoscopic print that's mesmerizing.
I love the retro look of this halter-style bikini by Katherine Hamnett. The balconette bra is incredibly flattering, its organic cotton fabrication soothing against the skin.
Missoni-esque minus the Missoni price tag, this ikat print dress epitomizes the phrase "effortlessly chic."
Backless gowns will look even sexier when you drape this Livia Firth chain down your back. It cascades across curves and turns an otherwise simple ensemble into something phenomenal.
I'm a big fan of vintage sunglasses and eyeglass frames, but the next best thing to finding a one-of-a-kind pair from yesteryear are the pieces by Earth Conscious Optics. They're made of recycled materials and are often shaped like the classic, Jackie-O-esque style that's near universally flattering.
This swimsuit cover up screams '70s Malibu to me. I could easily see it being worn at a poolside barbecue or on a quiet, secluded beachside.
Tie dye goes modern with this maxi dress by Gypsy 05. I love the unabashedly bright color combination and the fact that it's made of forgiving, stretchable organic cotton.
I never leave home without at least one piece of jewelry on, and if the jewelry happens to be eco-friendly, even better! This beautiful cuff from Alkemie is the kind of piece I'd wear everywhere: with jeans and a t-shirt, a pretty summer dress, or as a stunning wrist adornment with a black cashmere sweater in the fall.
