SUSTAINABLE STYLE: Spring into the Outdoors with Patagonia

We certainly cannot talk about spring sustainable style and layered dressing for the great outdoors without checking in with Patagonia  to see what they have on tap for the season ahead. Whether you are a surfer chick, a seasoned rock climber, or an urban adventurer, Patagonia  organic cotton hoodies and hemp separates create eco-chic combos for both travel and at home lounging.
Hemp has come along way baby, and Patagonia , of course, helped paved the way for designs and styles that are more than your usual gunny sack. The playful and practical Women’s ‘Island Skirt’ is great for far flung expeditions as well as neighborhood jaunts. Bias-cut panels and a handkerchief hem make for a bit of asymmetry and swing as one moves to and fro. The hemp fabric is super lightweight and packable, and drapes with a smooth, flat front with tie to just below the knee. Making tracks in the sand has never been so free of (carbon) footprints!
