The Latest Trends in Sustainable Fashion and How to Incorporate Them into Your Wardrobe
Each year, the demand for ethical and sustainable fashion grows, with consumers becoming more discerning about what they will and won’t wear.
Interestingly, however, while much of the focus is on eco-friendly production processes, reusability and environmental impact, this year’s fashion trends include throwback styles.
With that in mind, here’s a look at some of the latest ethical, responsible and sustainable styles in fine jewellery and exquisite timepieces and the items that can help elevate your day-to-day look.
Incidentally, the gold in all the below offerings is recycled in compliance with Responsible Jewellery Council (RSJ) standards, sourced ethically and certified environmentally friendly. This means that on top of being in trend, you can rest assured that you’re contributing to the betterment of the planet.
Pendant necklaces have returned in a big way. And the best part is that there appears to be no one popular trend, with chunky and minimalist pieces proving to be equally well-received. However, nothing is as sustainable as a classic vintage-look pendant made from high-quality recycled gold.
This makes the Amity Star pendant from The Classics Collection by Bernhard H. Mayer® – a modern interpretation of antique craftsmanship with a golden circle symbolising harmony and a diamond triangle pointing inwards – the perfect accessory for your wardrobe.
Even better: it is versatile and can be combined with matching earrings or simply worn at the end of a simple chain or in-trend throwback cord necklace.
As it has been for thousands of years, the sky continues to be an inspiration for sustainably-inclined fashionistas, with sun, moon and star-influenced designs especially popular. It’s all about stunning celestial radiance, essentially. So, whatever you pick, aim for timeless and luminous items. Whatever you choose, aim for timeless and luminous pieces.
The Delos Star earrings and pendant from the Elemental Collection by Bernhard H. Mayer®, for example, are set with exquisite diamonds that make their wearers shine brightly and confidently.
You can also opt for something more simple, such as the Sun & Earth diamond pendant, which exudes harmonious class with a beautiful diamond-studded white gold ring that floats above and intertwines with a dazzling yellow sun ring.
Diamonds may be a woman’s best friend, but tanzanite is the princesses’ favourite and, above all, one of the trend stones of the year.
Tanzanite has many merits: It is uniquely alluring, strikingly blue and rarer than diamonds. But its real appeal lies in its ability to enhance almost any style and outfit.
Whether you choose the Blue Drop Earrings by Bernhard H. Mayer from the Timeless Tanzanite Collection or something delicate like the Blue Breeze pendant, every look touched by ethically and sustainably sourced tanzanite becomes something majestic, beautiful and timelessly captivating.
The bangle is officially back in fashion thanks to Bella Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But it’s not just women who go for this look. Men are also embellishing their wardrobes with simple but sophisticated ethical bracelets and ribbons.
Want to join the trend and make an understated and bold statement of class?
The Bernhard H. Mayer® Classe bangle from The Classics Collection is a fashion must-have.
This slim stainless steel cuff, adorned with a subtle 18-karat gold line, can be worn alone or in combination with a classic timepiece and is a fashion must-have. The choice is yours.
Speaking of timepieces: this season, by the way, discreet, handmade wristwatches are also in fashion.
Yes, there’s no harm in opting for an eye-catching piece for your wrist. But if you prefer vintage minimalism, go for the Lurve Watch by Bernhard H. Mayer®.
With its subtle curves and delicate rose gold finish, the Lurve Watch exudes quiet control, perfection and purity. And what makes it even more enduring is its vegan strap in champagne.
Whatever you choose for your wardrobe, remember that the goal of sustainable fashion is to protect Mother Earth.
That’s the look we should ultimately aim for, season after season, year after year.
