Stay Stylish While You Volunteer This Earth Day


This Earth Day, I’m rolling up my sleeves and paying it forward. Well, maybe it’s paying it back. Either way, I’m getting down and dirty for the good of the globe. You have to surrender some of your time to volunteer, but you most definitely don’t have to sacrifice style. It can be difficult to put together a functional and fashionable outfit, but I’m up for the challenge.

In the spirit of volunteering, special thanks to ModEmployee Jess for helping us illustrate our Earth Day-inspired tips:

Layer Up: April weather can be unpredictable, so be sure to include a few layers in your look. Tidying up a beach can be fun, but not when your teeth are chattering.

Tenacious Textiles: Be sure to wear fabrics that can handle a variety of environments. These faux-leather leggings can be easily wiped off and this cargo jacket’s neutral color hides stains like a master, not to mention its adorable leopard print.


Headband Hues: Coordinating the color of your headband to your cardigan is a great way to add color to your outfit. But most importantly, it keeps those pesky flyaways out of your face as you plant new flowers at your local elementary school — no more dirty glove-to-face mishaps.

Waterproof Shoes: Keeping your tootsies sealed off is easier than you may think, plus it’s vital for Earth Day’s spent watering the herbs at your new Urban Garden. There are a plethora of options that double as water-proof wonders, specifically, rain boots, jellies, and all of our Mel Shoes.
