Not Only Feel Good In Your Clothes But Feel Good About Your Clothes

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: May 23, 2017 | Categories: Fashion, Shopping

I received the below-mentioned clothes for free for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I will only endorse companies, products and services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of endorsement.

Clothes you look good in and feel good buying from prAna

I love clothes that are figure flattering and comfortable. Clothes that make me look my best. I especially love not only feeling good in my clothes but feeling good about my clothes.

What I mean by that is… knowing that the clothing I buy is good for our planet.

All prAna clothing is either made of organic cotton or of hemp. Additionally, many items also use recycled materials. Being planet friendly is a big deal to prAna. And that’s a BIG deal to me.

Their goal is to make sustainable clothing accessible and important to everyone. I admit when I was younger, I never even thought about sustainable clothing, or what the clothes I bought and/or wore were even made of. As I’ve gotten older, though, I realize the importance of sustainable clothing.

I care about what I put into my (and my family) body, why shouldn’t I care what I put on the outside of it?

I’m impressed how prAna gives back to communities all over the world. Learn more HERE.

Sustainable clothes from prAna

I was recently asked to choose two items from prAna to review. I chose…

  • LIANA Sweater – “The prAna Liana Sweater is naturally beautiful. A wide neck, angled stripes, and asymmetrical hem create a casual feminine silhouette. A lightweight blend of soft hemp and organic cotton is conscious, comfortable, and moisture-wicking.”
  • TESS SHORT – “The stretch canvas of the prAna Tess Short is made of 97% organic cotton, with just the right amount of stretch. Wear it with the hem rolled up or down, whatever the moment and your outfit call for.”

I love both pieces!

The Liana sweater is so soft and feminine. I love the asymmetrical hem. It’s a fun and pretty top to pair with the prAna white shorts I chose. I wore it over a white tank top to complete the look.

The Tess short are so comfy. They can easily be dressed up or down. The perfect shorts to wear on a hot day.

Although I love that both pieces are pretty and comfortable, I especially love that both the sweater and shorts are sustainable. I want to be a part of a positive impact on the environment. It is my social responsibility.

prAna sustainable clothes good for the environment

prAna’s clothing is great to wear anywhere, from spending the day in the city to hiking the mountains, their clothing is created to be fashionable, comfortable, and versatile. I think the outfit I chose will be perfect to wear for a walk on the beach before going to dinner on vacation this year.

One of the reasons prAna clothing is perfect for traveling and adventures is because all the designers create and test the clothing based on their own love for the outdoors. So you can be assured of feeling comfortable in whatever clothing items you choose.

While prAna clothing is made to accommodate any adventure you wish to take, their items are first and foremost thoughtfully made in order to encourage fair trade and sustainable practices. prAna actually has only one core belief, and that is to give back more than we take from the world.

Wherever your journey takes you in your life, you will not only feel good about the way you look in clothes from prAna but you’ll feel good about buying prAna clothes.
