8 Elegant, Sustainable White Shirts and Blouses for Every Woman's Spring & Summer Wardrobe
Typical white shirts are often made with conventional cotton, which is an extremely thirsty crop requiring heavy use of pesticides. Alternatively, nicer shirts maybe made with silk, which requires chemical dry-cleaning, and ones from fast fashion are often made with polyester, which is a nonbiodegradable microplastic fiber.
For this spring and summer, complete your wardrobe with one of the following effortlessly elegant and versatile white shirts to dress up or down depending on where you're headed.
They are either made of a groundbreaking, new type of silk that is nontoxic and machine-washable, eco-friendly linen, organic cotton, or Tencel.
Note: Remember to make the most of everything you already own first, swap or borrow clothes from friends, browse through some of our favorite secondhand or consignment shops or thrift stores near you, then prioritize quality and durability over quantity with everything new you purchase!
