During Earth Month, I wrote about Bono and Ali Hewson’s eco-friendly line, Edun. The socially conscious company helps developing countries with sustainable employment and has a huge celebrity following.
Well, now their spring and summer collections are on sale, which is good news because organic clothing can be pretty pricy. These are the eight pieces I’m considering from the sale:
1. The silk Zig Zag Cami is extremely functional. I’d wear it under a blazer for the office, then alone with black cigarette pants for after work cocktails ($175 $125).
2. Cutouts are an ongoing trend. Edun’s organic cotton Ogogo Sweater takes an edgy approach with its asymmetric shapes ($210 $150).
3. I’d wear the Bamako – Zebra Dress with black gladiator flats for lunch with the girls, then throw on a pair of heels and an armful of bangles when we hit the town later that night ($135 $95).
4. Not everyone is a fan of rompers but Eduns’s Tribal Onepiece offers a more sophisticated take on the average playsuit with its loose fit and silk material. Throw on a long pendant necklace and some heels (or flats) and you’re good to go ($265 $190).
5. Who needs a necklace when you have an edgy printed neckline? The Grass Collar – Ainsley V – Neck Dress reminds me of something Rihanna would wear and it definitely fits in with this season’s tribal chic trend ($160 $115).
6. Colorful animal prints remind me of my bright blue leopard bathing suit I had as a kid. I can wear Edun’s Bamako – Cheetah Dress over a simple black bikini for a grownup version of my fun childhood memory ($135 $95).
7. The Preservation Top is made of Ethiopian hand woven cotton. The breezy material is perfect for cool summer nights ($135 $95).
8. A silk wrap dress will never go out of style. The Zimba Wrap Dress is available in black but I prefer this feminine rose color ($335 $235).
