Fashion is a way we express ourselves to the outside world. What we choose to wear says something about who we are; if you’re finding yourself becoming more eco-conscious lately, you may think you have to give it all up. Choosing natural style may have you imagining wearing burlap and no makeup, but as they say “the times, they are a-changing”. Summer Rayne Oakes will have you thinking differently about fashion with her new book Style, Naturally: The Savvy Shopping Guide to Sustainable Fashion and Beauty. Her approach to fashion is intelligent, eco-friendly and tres chic. Spend some time in the pages of her eco-friendly fashion guide and you’ll see natural fashion as fun, cutting edge, and smart.
Summer Rayne Oakes is a fashion model, an environmental scientist, and an entomologist. The woman knows her stuff. Style, Naturally is an amazingly comprehensive guide filled with fantastic resources for anyone looking to dress in clothes that are as friendly to the environment as they are fabulous to look at. Readers will learn about clothes, shoes, accessories, makeup, and beauty products that are chemical free and produced with minimal impact on the environment. Most importantly, she tells you just where to find them. Hundreds of online stores are provided for the most savvy of shoppers, along with info on the companies and great photos of their products. And if you want to get down to the knitty gritty and learn why it’s so important to make smart eco choices when shopping, Oakes will give you an education in straightforward talk. You’ll close this book feeling like a new-found fashion expert.
Personally, I find this book to be an invaluable resource. I’ve referenced it countless times in just the few short weeks I’ve owned it. Every page seems to have something new and exciting in it, with great clothing and beauty companies I’ve never heard of until now. I have looked up dozens of the companies Summer Rayne Oakes discusses in her book, and they’re all impressive and interesting online stores – from everyday style to high fashion.
I’m very excited to be giving away not one but 3 copies of Style, Naturally! Want to shop smarter? You’ll have more fun looking great than you have had in a long time.
