There’s no reason organics should be limited to only what you put in your body. Organic clothing is becoming more and more popular and along with its growing popularity comes a quickly expanding range of options and styles. Just in time for the too-quickly approaching cold weather, here are some long sleeved organic shirts for women that can be worn anywhere from a hot date to a cozy day at home.
Jute and Jackfruit offers a white scoopnecked top with gentle ruching over the bodice made of organic cotton. Perfectly appropriate for an elegant lunch out or a casual day at the office, this tunic is soft and feminine. At $69 this top is moderately priced, neither a steal nor a budget buster.
This everyday organic cotton shirt from Blue Canoe adds style to what could have been an standard shirt with a cowl neck. It comes in four colors and is perfect for a walk in the park or daily errands. Simple without being boring, this shirt costs a modest $55.
Indigenous Designs offers an organic jersey shirt in a steel gray that is perfectly date-worthy. The detailing along the front of the shirt is what stands out on this elegant top, twisting and draping into a low, but not too low, neckline. At $72 the price is right in line with the other shirts on this list and certainly worth the cost.
This scoop necked, soft organic cotton shirt from (hā) is great for a stroll through a farmers market or an open air concert. Laid back and unpretencious, the dusky rose color and over the shoulders neckline add a hint of effortless sexiness to an everyday casual shirt. Currently sold out, this shirt is a favorite and will hopefully be back in stock soon.
Sweet Skins has two sweet tops on their site. Both can multitask as either a standalone shirt or be layered over a lighter top. The City Sweatshirt is made of hemp, organic cotton and terry and is perfect for cold fall or winter days. It rings in at $80 but will be a stay at home comfortable favorite for years to come. The Hemp Wrap is also organic cotton, terry and hemp but is a lighter and slightly more dressed up than the City Sweatshirt. It is also a bit more elegant, though still imminently suited for a comfortable day off. It also costs $80, making the Sweet Skins picks slightly more expensive than the other tops on the list.
Each of the shirts above are soft, pretty and best of all earth friendly. Just as environmentally conscious consumers turned away from fur decades ago, there is a definite shift happening now towards organics. There’s no reason fashion can’t be low impact as well as stylish. The five tops listed in this article are a good place to start, but there are many more places to look for organic fashion.
