The perfect spring & summer piece is this recycled chambray jumpsuit! Liz Alig partners with artisan makers around the world to make stylish pieces with sustainable materials and up-cycled fabrics. This neutral recycled chambray jumpsuit is the perfect addition to my wardrobe and it makes me eager for warm spring days! Bye snow & winter!
I was gifted this jumpsuit from Liz Alig and am going to style it for you 3 different ways for the weird weather that is spring here in Colorado!
On the colder spring days, you can always toss on a sweater and add your ankle boots no matter how sick of wearing them you are. On especially cold days, reach for a pullover sweater instead. I wore this earlier this week as the weather turned colder because I wasn’t ready for the warm spring weather we were having to go away. My Tradlands sweater is perfect to toss on over this jumpsuit, it is warm and I can still access those pockets!
A jumpsuit is perfect to layer with a cardigan sweater, I especially love this hand knit burgundy wool sweater, also from Liz Alig. And by choosing my favorite mules, I can pretend it is warmer than it actually is.
On the warmest spring day, I look forward to rocking this jumpsuit all on its own with flats, clogs, or my favorite slide on sandals and a fun market tote for going to the farmer’s market or enjoying a spring picnic at a park! I’m very excited that I got to style this jumpsuit on it’s own in March, which means these few days of 60 degree weather are coming to an end very very soon. Another fun way to wear it is over a casual tee, I liked adding this striped one for some pattern and it provided some extra coverage in the wind.
You can get so many good outfits out of a jumpsuit, especially this recycled chambray jumpsuit. This jumpsuit is made by Gladys who has her own small workshop in Guatemala. Buying this jumpsuit helps support her small business and her family. Gladys has been able to care for her family and support them with her small business – this was her dream for years!
Liz Alig began one summer when Liz began having her own questions about the fast fashion manufacturing of clothing, which prompted her to wonder if small batch fashion with artisan makers could give women in developing countries an education which in turn could give them a source of income which in turn would give their children a better education. Maybe the production of our clothing could be a key in helping whole communities out of poverty.
Today our goal is – to make fashion forward, effortless style that you want to wear – clothing that gives people in developing countries hope and a meaningful job. A large portion of the line is still produced with recycled materials, but now we incorporate sustainable and handwoven textiles as well. Liz Alig partners with over ten amazing fair trade cooperatives, workshops, and NGO’s that not only create beautiful ethical clothing, but are so much different than traditional production houses. They use funds to offer free skills training to women, they offer free nursery for young children. They not only pay well but give paid holidays and benefits to employees.
SIZING | I am 5’2″ and wearing the XS, I have 27″ waist & a 34″ bust, the jumpsuit is rooming on top for me which seems right for my body shape. I have room to wear a top under it comfortably and it isn’t too tight in my hips or thighs. The breathable fabrication makes it ideal for summer when I plan to wear this every single week!
