Five low-impact brands that make a big statement.
Personal style goes beyond what you’re wearing. Style is about confidence, individuality, expression--and it also means consciousness and social responsibility regarding the impact your purchases make on the environment. While pregnancy puts a whole new spin on getting dressed with more to consider shape-wise, there are sustainable brands that work for your changing shape, while keeping your carbon footprint at a minimum. Some of our favorites...
Ace & Jig: With careful consideration of the environment and human condition in their business practices, Ace & Jig produces beautiful unique pieces that are comfortable, cool and super super stylish. Our favorites this season are the Soiree and Slipper dresses, both suitable for pregnancy and beyond.
Everlane: Everlane covers the basics with flexible pieces that will give you the most bang for your buck. Everlane is conscious, transparent and sustainable and while the brand is not specifically made for maternity, pieces like this classic button down and this a-line dress absolutely work during this time.
Boob Design: One of the only true maternity brands currently paying attention to sustainability is Boob Design. Functional, fashionable and works from pregnancy into nursing. We think you’ll love the look of this wrap maxi dress and this classic black dress.
Mara Hoffman: Despite not being an actual maternity brand, Mara Hoffman’s collection includes a plethora of styles that will flex with your changing shape. Conscious, super stylish and comfortable, these are pieces that will work from the bump and beyond. Our seasonal favorites include this easy jumpsuit and this off-the-shoulder cover-up.
Ulla Johnson: Focused on artisans + handcrafted traditions, Ulla Johnson’s globally inspired bohemian brand is rooted in both consciousness and beauty. While Ulla is not a maternity brand, many of her pieces are cut roomy enough to take you through your pregnancy. The mille dress and rafaella jumpsuit are standouts from her Spring/Summer collection.
