Finding stylish summer eco-fashion is easy breezy thanks to Amour Vert's colorful dresses that are suitable for a bevy of occasions, from work to cocktail party. The California-based eco-fashion label spins peace silk into a bevy of elegant and feminine styles, all made in the USA and conveniently available online for under $200.
Polyester is just about the worst fabric to wear in the summer--or any time for that matter. Common in summer dresses, the fabric might mimic the appearance of silk but it doesn't breathe one bit. Amour Vert sticks with sustainable fabrics and this season their main material is peace silk, which does not harm the silk worm.Vibrant patterns give any drab wardrobe a boost. Enter the Katie Paintbrush dress ($169, Amour Vert) and the Ivy Mosaic Pleated dress ($184, Amour Vert)--pictured, above.
Available in a variety of colors and styles these eco summer dresses are functional for more than one occasion. Wear them from the beach to a pool and/or cocktail party. You can easily throw on a blazer or cardigan to make it work in a fashion-forward, business casual office, and they would look smashing with these stylish eco sandals.
I love the Carmel dress for its lady-like silhouette, playful ruffle, functional pockets, and classic style. This sundress is available in a bright "Coral" hue and more relaxed "Riviera" blue ($179, Amour Vert).
The Cynthia Emerald dress is elegant and sexy with a deep v-neckline and a comfortable with an elastic waist ($189, Amour Vert) and the Kim Coral Boatneck Tunic is a bright, flattering dress that will be a summer wardrobe staple season after season ($159, Amour Vert).
