Sustainably Chic

For the Conscious & the Active

FashionNatalie Kay


Finding a sustainably made clothing line for the active lifestyle paired with style can be hard. Fret no more, I've found one! Simulacra is a brand making you look good when sweating your buns off in spin class. They know what we want to wear for our more active and casual days, and they understand what is important to us; how it is made, what it is made from, who made it..

Simulacra sources eco-friendly fabrics {like organic cotton, bamboo viscose and recycled polyester} produced in Montreal. The organic cotton is certified from India, and the polyester is recycled right here in the USA. The bamboo fiber uses a closed-loop system, which means the solution used to process the fiber is recycled and reused through and through. Pretty cool, right? Then all manufacturing of the garments are done right within the Garment Center of New York City. 

We wanted to be honest that everything in the present is shaped by the past and continues to shape the future, paying homage to the influence of time. A proud humility.

I'm cold natured, so I never thought I could fall in love with a sleeveless hoodie as much as I have with this one. Simulacra's Sleeveless Hoodie has just the right amount of coziness and chicness to make me want to go get out and be active. The front pocket stores my iPhone for the tunes, and the hood hides a bad hair day {as well as, it looks really really cool}. Even my boyfriend paid me a compliment - blush -, and clothes are not his thing. Plus, I love how the armholes drop so you are able to have a splash of color underneath. *this hoodie is made from organic cotton and recycled polyester terry*

A few more of my favorite pieces from the Simulacra collection... 

The Racerback Tank has an opening in the back perfect for cooling you off during workouts, and the front seam detailing is very sweet and feminine. Another sleeveless top is their Muscle Tee, which has a very strong but dainty feel, and can easily be worn out on the town. The asymmetrical neckline looks extremely flattering on the Long Sleeve Twist Top, and the sister to my sleeveless hoodie, the 3-in-1 Sweater, gives you the option of three necklines! For a fresh look on active pants, check out their Patterned Cropped Joggers made from organic cotton and recycled polyester.
