With lockdown restrictions easing on April 12th and the majority of the UK’s music festivals now sold out, we’ve collated perfect styles which will have you ready to face the world again in the most sustainable way possible. From jackets to keep you dry while you pitch your tent to waterproofs to battle the April showers. Here is some ethical outerwear.
Maium has released new styles for SS21 and added a range of classic and vibrant colours to their popular and quite literal original style, the Original. The Trench and Mac are the latest additions for Maium. The classic silhouette is well known and loved by many but this option may have a slight advantage – it’s completely waterproof, perfect for a Spring day when sudden downpours are likely. The new colours for the Original scream festival season, lightweight and again waterproof it is the undeniable addition to your outfit. As always, Maium is a sustainable brand, vegan, cruelty-free and all their products are made from recycled PET bottles.

WAWWA’s classic neutral tones are great for those who aren’t into colour and relaxed, comfortable fits are unmatched for any size or gender. WAWWA is made in the UK, sustainable, vegan and made with organic materials.
