Outfit Ideas: Sustainable Fashion

We're starting a new blog series featuring outfit ideas combining Simone Walsh Jewellery with clothes, shoes and accessories by designers and brands that we love.

For our first outfit ideas we wanted to feature a couple of eco-friendly and sustainable brands because it's Fashion Revolution week (and because we generally think sustainable fashion is the way to go). Scroll down below the outfit ideas to learn more about the brands featured.

Outfit idea 1:

Eco-friendly fashion: outfit idea using recycled, sustainable and environmentally friendly processes.

Our first outfit features bright pops of colour, with a focus on yellow. This will be a great outfit for sunny days, but simply add black leggings and a long sleeved top to bring a splash of colour to cooler days.

Outfit idea 2:

Sustainable and ethical fashion featuring cherry blossoms and pink.

The second outfit features beautiful cherry blossoms with soft pinks and darker greens to add some sweetness to any day. This is a great outfit for cooler weather given the handmade quilted jacket. Partner it with jeans or black trousers. Alternatively wear it with a pencil skirt and leggings or tights.

About the designers

The outfits feature shoes by Rothy's: they take single use plastics and recycle them into beautiful, machine washable shoes, available in a wide array of colours and a selection of different styles. I'm yet to get myself a pair of their gorgeous shoes, but they are high on my shopping list!

They also feature clothing by Seagrass Design: a gorgeous collection of bright, bold and colourful pieces by a Tasmania based design duo. Their pieces are handmade with ethically sourced fabrics.

Our own Simone Walsh Jewellery designs are primarily made with recycled precious metals and our designs are handmade or assembled in South Australia. We also work with an ethically run workshop in Indonesia to produce some of our components.

Simone Walsh is an Australian jewellery designer and maker who has been creating unique jewellery in silver, gold and gemstones for over 25 years. She lives and works on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula outside Adelaide in South Australia, where she's lucky enough to wander on the beach and frolic in the garden in her free time. Simone is the Founder & Creative Director of Simone Walsh Jewellery.

Simone’s jewellery never ceases to amaze me - I love her originality and thoughtfulness.
