Advertising with CALIDA – German version here

Slow Fashion, Eco Fashion, Fair Fashion – all of them are important but in my mind different things. Thanks to my cooperation partner CALIDA, however, today I can combine all three topics in one article:

  • Slow Fashion: the idea to consume less and more consciously
  • Eco Fashion: Here the focus is on sustainability and sustainable materials
  • Fair Fashion: The focus here is on ethically correct, fair and well-paid working conditions

 

Using the CALIDA I LOVE NATURE t-shirt made of TENCEL® MICRO I want to show you that you can style a garment, here a white shirt, in so many different ways that having a thousand tops in your wardrobe is simply not necessary. The CALIDA shirt is super sustainable and made in Europe. It is made out of TENCEL® MICRO which consumes 20 times less water than cotton, is produced in a closed cycle, and the entire top is 100 percent compostable, including the thread and label.

You can read more about the T-shirt, why it’s so sustainable, and what I think of it in my I LOVE NATURE campaign blog post!

Today I would like to show you 5 looks with the T-shirt. I personally find such styling articles inspiring, but I also want to prove that a “simple” white T-shirt can be very versatile. I’ve created the looks in a way and also described below, so that you can style them similarly, even without having exactly the same pieces in the closet. Actually, I just combined clothes that I’ve owned for a long time with the shirt. I did not want to create any crazy high fashion outfits that are out of reach but show fashionable street styles.

Look 1: culotte and vest

The culotte trend has even caught on with me! I bought these pants in Vienna and have been living in them ever since! This is the only new thing that I show in this series. They can be super casual, but also really chic style. The easiest way to create a chic look, of course, is with high heels. But I rarely wear them anymore and therefore I prefer simple black sandals. To make the t-shirt look a bit more elegant, I combine it with a long vest (which is actually a sleeveless dress, a sleeveless trench coat would fit even better), dark lips and a chic business bag.

 

Look 2 blazers and skinny jeans

One of my standard looks: black skinny jeans, a bright top and then, depending on the weather, a jacket. Even better is a gray over-sized checkered blazer, but I wanted to work with only the things that have been hanging in my wardrobe for a long time. Just be creative and adjust the looks depending on what you find in your wardrobe! By the way: I really liked to wear these boots some time ago. Now, after two years in which I did a lot of backpacking and was on the road in the summer where I seldom wore tight shoes, I can barely walk in them, haha. Backpacker problems!

 

Look 3 Mini Skirt & Red Lips

Another standard look of mine! I have already shown this look several times on the blog and / or on Instagram. I just like the combo of a loose shirt and a tight, black skirt. A patent leather look skirt would be even better in this outfit, but again I wanted to use only “older” clothes from my closet. If you are not into short skirts, I recommend Pencil skirts or a long, black maxi skirt. To upgrade the monochrome look, I recommend bright red lips!!

 

Look 4 Layering with a summer dress

The summer is coming to an end … unfortunately! I am a real summer child and love summer, sun, sunshine. This is also reflected in my wardrobe, because I have a disproportionate amount of dresses hanging in my closet at home. But I wear these almost all year round, thanks to the layer look! The CALIDA shirt can be worn very well under other things because it is so soft and supple. I recommend a dress with a lower neckline. Here I just made the straps of my black dress a bit longer. The layered look simply looks a bit better this way.

 

Look 5: Relaxed with a Cropped Hoodie

I have some shorter sweaters. You may wonder how they are supposed to be worn…but I really like cropped hoodies because I can play a lot with layered looks! Here I once again wore the CALIDA shirt underneath, but of course you can also combine any other tops and dresses that you like!

 

I hope, together with my cooperation partner CALIDA, I was able to present five looks that inspired you a little bit more for slow fashion. If you want to know more about the 100 percent compostable I LOVE NATURE Shirt, then click here.

Which look do you like best? I am looking forward to your feedback!!!

  1. Ich bin auch der Meinung, dass man ein Teil unzählige male und in unzähligen Variationen kombinieren kann. Man brauch gar nicht so viel Kleidung. Cool finde ich auch Fun Shirts, diese kann man auch gut kombinieren.
