Sustainable Summer Style – Staff Picks

“For me, summer fashion used to mean cut offs and tank tops layered over a swim suit. I spent most of my summers in Florida and when I wasn’t waiting tables I’d put on my favorite “uniform” and head to the beach. I couldn’t get away with that look today but I still yearn for those casual summer days.

Skirts are great for summer and our Tasca Skirt made from soft, breathable Cotton/Modal is perfect for wearing on a hot day. I love the kanga pocket in front that can hold my phone and the side slits flatter everyone.

I can’t pull off a swim suit under a top but I love to wear one of our printed Sporty Bras layered under one of our Forte Tanks. Even if the straps peek out, they become part of the look and the semi-fuller cut tank balances beautifully when I wear it with the slimmer skirt.”

“Suits have never been my thing. I’m a pretty casual guy, so I’m lucky I don’t have to dress up for work. Still I can’t or shouldn’t wear grubby shirts and holey jeans. Last year MAJAMAS EARTH introduced our Men’s line and I’m glad we did. I wear the tees and boxers every day and can honestly say we make the most comfortable clothes. Best of all, they really hold up.

MAJAMAS EARTH for MEN_The Wally Crew-Neck_Zinfandel_Front_Small.jpgOur boxer briefs are the most comfortable I’ve ever owned. The Organic Cotton in the Rocko Boxer Brief gets softer with each wash and I prefer the looser fit. Some days though, a fitted style is better so I go for the Gio Boxer Brief made from our durable but soft Cotton/Modal fabric.

On chilly days, you’ll catch me in our Lorenzo Long Sleeve shirts but once the temperature goes over 60, I’ll be in our short sleeved Vinny V-Neck or our Wally Crew-Neck. Trust me, these tees hold up and look great with jeans or under a suit jacket if you’re going for a casual Friday look.

On weekends I’m all about the Franco Jogger and the Marco Short. I literally live in these and love that they both have printed lined pockets that are big enough to hold my cell and wallet. Ethically, USA MADE clothing for Men is hard to find and reasonably priced clothes can be even tougher. Give MAJAMAS EARTH for Men a try. I promise you won’t be disappointed.”

The Qualcosa Tank_Black_Lifestyle_Small Square INSTA REVISED Final“My favorite summer piece is the Qualcosa Tank, although I wear it all year round (just with different layers).

I like it because it’s an easy layer that’s not basic and layers well with my printed bras. It has a flattering fit that transitions between styles and can be dressed up for an event.

I love to dress it up by tucking it into a maxi skirt, but my go-to is usually dark skinny jeans and a bootie or shorts and a sandal.”

– Dana, Logistics & Inventory Manager

“When the warmer days come along it is easy to keep cool in short or sleeveless tops, but ya won’t catch me wearing a traditional tank top! I am a fan of details, especially ones that are tasteful and strategically placed to complement. I am loving The Coastal Tank lately.

You see, the neckline is a braided highlight in a flattering charcoal grey color (works for all seasonal complexions) that contrasts beautifully with the color of your choice. The colors vary from bold to classic – it’s an effortless detail that serves as a neckline and shoulder strap, so ya can ditch the necklace for this outfit! Just add earrings or a bracelet to dress it up. The top has a slight A-line silhouette that can be tucked under a skirt or simply worn over denim or a legging.

I have found it is versatile and always fun to wear in new ways. It’s easy to wear to yoga at the park, conservative enough to wear under a blazer to the office and perhaps as a maternity/nursing top one day. Yes, you read correctly! It’s a maternity/nursing top but it’s so versatile and stylish you wouldn’t have guessed.

Since I’m a minimalist, I carefully question the garment’s I let into to my wardrobe and this piece, my friends, serves as a multi-fashionable piece. Knowing it is made sustainably and responsibly makes me happy and proud to wear it over and over again. Optimizing since 88.”

The-Dettaglio-Top_Black_The-Comfort-Legging_Woodland_Lifestyle_Small-Web.jpg“Summer calls for soft flowy styles that are fitting for an all-day adventure. Garments that go from work to the weekend are the BEST when you run around as much as I do.

The Dettaglio Top is all of that and more. Made from Cotton Modal and recylced cotton fabrics, this shirt is comfortable, breathable and eco-chic. A flattering v-neck, a-line silhouette and beautiful back detail are perfect for dressing up or down.

It transitions from work to a night out in Chicago when paired with skinny denim or a pencil skirt and booties. It works for a weekend yoga workout at Garfield Park Conservatory to brunch when paired with a pair of JoJo Leggings, printed Sporty Bra and strappy sandal. It even works for nature activities like gardening, beach trips and forest walks. Grab a denim or leather jacket to throw over the top and you’re all set for any summer occasion!

Other perks: It breathes SO well in hot hot heat while still keeping your shoulders covered with a cap sleeve AND packs well without wrinkling so it can accompany you on any trip too.”
