Back to School in Sustainable Style

Back to School in Sustainable Style

As August comes to a close, parents probably have one big thing on their mind: the start of a new school year. It’s an annual tradition to stock up on supplies and refresh our children's wardrobes. Now is the perfect opportunity to add in basics that your kids will wear all season long. These are the pieces that your child will be living in between classes and on weekends. 

Whether your child has been a student for a few years now or is starting nursery for the first time, send them off with style. Here are our favourite sustainable back to school pieces for the new season.

Portland Pullover by Colored Organics

A good basic is a piece you’ll reach for over and over again. This will definitely be the case with the Portland pullover by Colored Organics. Gender neutral and super soft, this pullover can be worn with just about anything. It looks great with jeans, leggings, trousers, skirts, or even on top of a dress. Made with lightweight and sustainably sourced organic cotton, this pullover is an ideal transitional piece for those early autumn days.

Cruz Joggers by Colored Organics

Joggers have become our wardrobe heroes during the pandemic. They have the ultimate combination of comfort, practicality, and easy style. These soft and cozy 100% organic cotton joggers are perfect to pair with the Portland Pullover for autumnal playdates and after school activities. They look great with bodysuits, t-shirts, and other basics. You can also style them with a matching sweatshirt for a modern feel.

Linen Long Sleeve Jumpsuit by Dannie and Lilou

We always love a good one piece and this linen jumpsuit is our favourite pick for an easy outfit. The luxurious fabric and cut coconut buttons makes it feel dressy, but the elasticated waist and relaxed fit will provide all day comfort. This jumpsuit looks adorable tucked into wellies and styled with a cute cardigan on top.

Knit Hoodie by Goumikids

This lovely chunky knit hoodie will make your child feel like they’re wrapped in a warm embrace. It’s the perfect layering piece as the temperatures start to drop. We think it’s always great to have a hood with Britain’s unpredictable weather! Designed with comfort and warmth in mind, this organic cotton hoodie can easily fit over footies, t-shirts, and lighter knits. It’s beyond adorable when paired with matching knit trousers. The roomy design fits on the larger side, so your child will be able to enjoy this hoodie as they grow.

Canvas Coat by Goumikids

This timeless unisex coat will quickly become your go-to piece of outerwear. Canvas is the perfect weight for crisp early autumn days. The roomy fit will allow you to gradually make the switch from t-shirts to jumpers as your base layer. We also love the oversized pockets; they provide ample space for snacks, toys, or any other special item your little one might find throughout the day.
