Sustainable style crush with Greenfashionista

Say hi to Madeleine aka Greenfashionista – our latest sustainable style crush from Scandinavia. Growing up in Sweden, sustainability was just a normal part of society. So for Madeleine, thinking about the environment has always been a top priority, whether its by recycling the rubbish or avoiding overconsumption.

“I think it is so important to understand how our actions affect the planet and the people and to not be nonchalant and believe that what you do doesn’t make a difference, because it does!”

In terms of fashion, Madeleine’s always loved it and had a flair from combining different styles from a young age. She used to take her dad’s shirts or her mum’s sweaters, add a belt and make it her own.

So why is Madeleine our sustainable style crush atm? Well…

She’s not afraid of colour

Sustainable fashion doesn’t mean you have to just wear muted colours, there’s a whole world of bright, beautiful clothing out there for you to explore and Madeleine proves that! Her outfits are always popping with colour and turquoise looks like a favourite!

But also knows how to keep it simple

Going for a more minimalist look? Keep those bright colours in your wardrobe for today. These outfits from Madeleine are simple yet sweet. We love the white tee, blue skirt and a pair of trainers. So simple but looks so good!

She loves a long, flowing skirt

The ideal summer outfit is an ankle-length skirt, even better with florals. These are versatile and Madeleine shows us that they don’t always have to be dainty. Wear them with baggy jumpers for when it’s a bit colder out for something cozier and out of the ordinary.

But hey, trousers are cool too

Skirts are cool, but trousers are cooler. Bright red or black, Madeleine shows how slick a pair of trousers can make an outfit look. Especially when paired with a white shirt and a trench coat.
