A huge part of the fashion world is trends. There’s no denying it.

And ethical fashion is, well, the opposite really. The basis is built on buying long lasting, versatile pieces. Not trend driven.

That being said, I’m going to be very honest with you: Ethical fashion can be boring. There, I said it! While we want to support the slow fashion industry it can feel a little frustrating, almost like being put into a box.

It can be especially hard when super fun and beautiful trends come out each year. But I’m here to tell you there is a way to ride some of your favorite trends while still keeping it ethical.

I’ve gathered up some of 2019’s most promising trends and found their ethical versions to share with you. So you can rock the trends and still feel good about your purchase.

4.Cut out swim suit
Remember when you wouldn’t be caught dead in a one piece? Me too. Well it’s time to get over our middle school trauma and jump back on the one piece swimsuit gang. Or better yet, one pieces that look like two pieces?

Cut out swim suits are in! And they’re oh so classy, like this one piece from Reformation.

7. Leopard printLeopard print anything! But I’ve been noticing more and more the bold print becoming more than just an accent and more of a focal point of an outfit. Like Pants and skirts.

Make a HUGE statement with these leopard print pants from Reformation. You’re sure to have every eye in the room on you.
