We’ve all been spending more time at home, and when we’re just bouncing around the house, it can feel like we have fewer opportunities to let our inner fashionista shine. But getting dressed up doesn’t have to mean getting fancy or making a fuss.
We wanted some recommendations for creating ethical looks that are comfy without being complicated, so we turned to an expert – our stylist, Liz!
Liz is the mastermind behind all your favorite Ten Thousand Villages looks and a fashion designer, so we trust her on all things style. She suggests these 4 minimalist ways to get dressed up on days when you’re staying close to home.
Heavy metal, light looks
Bold metallic accent jewelry will have you feeling ready to conquer the day. Your favorite pair of jeans and a light blouse will have you feeling ready to conquer it comfortably. The Daring Necklace features a striking pendant and is handcrafted by artisans working with our fair trade partner Asha in India.
The Small Chain Link Bracelet is handcrafted by skilled jewelry artisans in Kenya.
Put it in neutral
Use neutral accents to add some flare to a simple outfit without getting to flashy. Natural materials like leather, wood, and tagua nut are the main ingredients for this casual look. The Wooden Teardrop Earrings feature papri, serus, and tun wood, and the New Beginnings Bracelet features slices of tagua, a sustainable alternative to plastic, in three understated hues.
Three separate leather bracelets in black, brown, and tan make up the Twisted Braided Bracelet Set, a simple trio that offers endless possibilities for your wardrobe.
The delight is in the details
If you’re looking for a minimalist and elegant accessory that will match just about everything, look no further than the Little Details Hoop Earrings. Featuring delicate hammered accents, these sterling silver earrings are handcrafted by artisans working with our fair trade partner Allpa in Peru.
Put a ring (or two) on it
Double up on lovely rings handcrafted in Cambodia from recycled brass bomb casings. Symbols of hope, the Arrow and Chevron rings highlight clean lines and bold geometry.
