To solve your summer-spring wardrobe sartorial woes this time of year, our recommendation would be to invest in sustainable LIVA fabrics that you can buy guilt-free.
Leaving the house in brilliant sunshine, only to be greeted with a downpour later on? Or, curating a spring-summer wardrobe, just to find out nothing from the collection serves your needs during autumn? For times like these, all you need is transitional silhouettes that are multi-functional and will last you this season and next. To solve your everyday sartorial woes this time of year, our recommendation would be to go for some versatile in-between-seasons staples, and trends that transcend specific weather conditions. And why not, seasonless dressing is the new buzz right now.
A friendly byproduct of this? When you buy transitional clothing, you buy less in general – reducing the harmful impact of fashion on the environment. Ahead, we list out five fabric trends that are transitional as well as bound to take over 2021 with their timeless appeal. What’s more, each of these is available in sustainable LIVA fabrics so you can buy guilt-free. Here’s the lowdown.
When it comes to fashion that transcends seasons, crinkled, retracted and crumpled fabrics go a long way. Opt for neutral-toned textured tops paired with plain skirts and slides, or sheer textured pants with plain shirts to pull off chic formal looks. In case you’re wondering where to get these, LIVA’s sustainable fabrics are just what you need. When shopping from your favourite brands, check the LIVA tag before making the purchase.
Look closely and you’ll notice the perennial summer stripes have been transformed into bold banding compositions lately. You can spot the trend on high streets and runways, seen in different types of silhouettes and colour palettes. And to make the hunt for a sustainable version easy for you, LIVA makes fabrics that feature the statement stripes you prefer – whether yarn-dyed or printed, in pastel colours or vibrant hues.
Plaids – whether seen in the form of overcoats, jackets, skirts or trousers – has been a classic staple we should all have in our wardrobes. Its various incarnations range from A-line, mid-length skirts; classic warm hues; smart-relaxed formal core pieces and more. To make a statement the next time you decide to embrace the trend, wear a plaid skirt with a tonal blouse or team it with a multi-functional plaid coat. The high-quality blends of Livaeco are soft and supple, hence perfect for elegant drapes.
Looking for versatile separates that also have a formal edge? Tap into the summer season with keyhole dobbies. The pattern adds pretty, intricate textured details to – straight-leg, high-waisted trousers – or a short white day dress – offering a dressier take on the simple silhouettes. For a brunch date, go for a pair of straight-fit pants and team it with an apricot blouse.
When sustainable fabrics meet the sugary shades of summer, the combination is equal parts trendy, cutesy and responsible. LIVA’s eco-conscious fabrics come in soft shades of pink, leafy greens, tinted pastel greys and more – to be used in garments such as lightweight chinos with a crisp surface and subtle texture. Wear your pair with a similar blouse for a monotone look and make heads turn the next time you step out.
