As summer draws to a close, Yara Shahidi is showing that it is possible to look beautiful in durable clothes. The “black-ish” actress posed in a two-piece with a retro-looking flower in a photo posted on her Instagram, expressing the power of flowers in a green, yellow and red kaleidoscope. Given her dewy summer glow, she aptly captioned the photo “Glazed Donut Summers.”
The suit is designed by Galamaar, an LA-based swimwear brand that is committed to making products with eco-friendly fabrics. The brand’s website claims that it makes durable products that can be worn season after season. “With thoughtful consideration for the quality of materials and construction, our goal is to create improved wardrobe staples, adaptable to changing trends and wear,” the statement said. When it comes to durable clothing, the better the construction, the more durable they are – saves from landfill.
For example, Shahidi’s suit is made of nylon from discarded fishing nets and everything from metal hardware to packaging materials is made with durability in mind. But Shahidi is not the only celebrity who promotes sustainability. Others include Emma Watson, who wore a durable two-piece dress to interview Al Gore, and Willow Smith, who helped launch the gender-free, sustainable line for Paxon.
Of course, one of the biggest obstacles to switching to more durable clothing is the price tag that comes with it, but if you see these pieces as a real investment (for yourself and the environment), they could be worth the splurge. You can get the right look of Shahidi in front.
