Choosing Ethical Fashion While Working From Home

COVID-19 has changed the way we live our lives and that includes how we work. Many companies have transitioned to working from home to encourage social distancing and keep employees safe. The transition to remote work can be tricky, as many people find it difficult to maintain their typical routine. At Vi Bella, we believe that it is crucial to follow your normal routine as closely as you can. We know how tempting it can be to roll out of bed and get to work in your pajamas, but getting into the habit of getting dressed for work each morning can cause your productivity to drastically increase. Just because you aren’t working in the office anymore, doesn’t mean your favorite sustainable accessories have to sit in your jewelry box!

Make it a point to get ready each day, even if that means throwing on jeans, a simple tee and a fun, statement necklace. You will feel far more productive both mentally and physically if you keep a steady, normal routine. 

One of our favorite ways to get ready for a day in the home office is by putting on some ethically-made accessories. It is an easy way to elevate your look and flaunt your favorite jewelry pieces that maybe haven’t seen the light of day since quarantine began. Our Jewelry Collection features tons of neutral accessories that are perfect for dressing up your casual, work from home outfits. Here are a few of the pieces that we love to wear while working from home. These handcrafted pieces will make you feel put together in just a matter of seconds!

One of our go-to pieces is the Felicity Necklace. This gorgeous brass bar necklace features a one-of-a-kind, hand-stamped texture. We love how this can instantly add a classy element to your casual outfit. If you’re looking for a piece you can truly wear with anything, you’ve found your match! Consider layering this piece with a longer necklace for a more elevated look. If you are looking for comfort and some added shimmer for your morning Zoom calls, wear this necklace on its own.

Our Leopard Earrings are another fan favorite heading into fall. Animal print is a huge trend this season and we love incorporating it into our outfits whenever possible. These striking earrings provide the perfect way to dress up a plain tee or blouse when you’re wanting to look a little more put together. As an added bonus, these earrings are hand beaded, which means you can trust that they are high quality and will hold up for years to come.

Searching for a fun way to incorporate a boho element into your outfit? Look no further! The Willow Earrings add a simple touch of bohemian flair to any look. These hand-poured resin stud earrings feature an eye-catching emerald color that is perfect for autumn. The lightweight, gold tassels make them easy to wear throughout your entire day working at home.

Although we love accessorizing, we value the importance of choosing ethically sourced clothing as well. Many ethically sourced clothing stores offer high-quality and affordable options. There is so much value in knowing where your clothes came from and how they were made. One of our favorite stores for ethically sourced clothing is Elegantees. Their clothing is made through sustainable and ethical practices that you can feel good about. Here are some of our favorite basic pieces that they offer. These items are simple and easy to style which makes them perfect for those busy days in the home office.

This reversible dress is the perfect way to look stylish while still being comfortable. The dress is made from organic cotton which makes it lightweight and easy to transition into fall. Throw on a denim or leather jacket and you’re all ready for your productive day of work!

We love this simple, yet functional tie-front top. It comes in a neutral oatmeal color which makes it easy to pair with bottoms of your choosing. The tie-front accent offers a fun and unique twist on a traditional basic tee.

All things considered, there are many ways to incorporate ethical fashion into your work from home wardrobe. There is nothing more meaningful than supporting businesses that maintain ethical and sustainable practices. At Vi Bella, we are proud to be a part of a movement that is providing meaningful futures for artisans in developing countries. Each purchase you make with us has a direct impact on their lives as they provide for their families, explore their faith and support the education of their children. When you join the ethical fashion movement you are positively affecting hundreds of lives along the way.
