Looking for a little eco-friendliness in your clothing? Allistyle is a Canadian shop offering clothing from bamboo and organic cotton. They boast that they wash well and never wrinkle. You can shop for their line in person in Toronto at Gussied Up (Bathurst) or shop at their official website. At the moment there is not a large selection, about three bottoms, twelve tops, and fifteen dresses; each having two to five color options to choose from. Here are a few of my favorite pieces:
The Cowl Neck Top ($125): I love the color blocking and the bright block of blue with a subtle cowl neck.
The Full Cowl Neck Tunic ($165): I like the longer length both in the sleeves and the body. The diagonal ties are an interesting visual feature.
The Short Vest ($85): I love vests and this is a simple piece that can be put over camis, tanks, tees, blouses, dresses, etc.
The Wrap ($118): Love the color, love the style. Looks great with tops or dresses.
The Sweater Dress ($205): I love cardigans that are dress length. They are fabulous with leggings or left open for layer. They have a wonderful movement about them. I love the ripple effect on this one.
The Little Black Dress ($110): I am a fan of pleats so this is a winner. I love the wide neck with matching banded sleeves and hem. It is a bit short so I’d probably wear it more like a long tunic than a dress.
Here is a look at the fashions in motion:
Their website is a bit finicky to shop at so be patient with it. For some reason they don’t show all the colors for each item. The images look blurry at first but when you click on them the extra large view is sharp and gives a good view. They ship throughout North America using Purolator so you know the shipping won’t be cheap. [FYI: The lovely blonde/brunette in images 1, 3, 4, and 5 is America’s Last Top Model Whitney Thompson by the way.
