Kestan

Do you remember this brand from a couple years back? I’m sure you’ve seen them within more of my posts throughout the years, but I first introduced you to their organic cotton line. It is great for casual wear, but this new line works for both day and night, work and play!

Three Reasons to Love Kestan

Beautiful Fabrics. By now, you probably know I’m a total textile nerd. My textiles class in college was my absolute favorite. I loved the science behind creating new yarns, and using unique resources to find alternatives to the usual synthetics on the market. Kestan uses one of my go-to fabrics, Lyocell, which is created in a closed-loop system where solvents and water are reused over and over rather than thrown out after each process. Besides being 100% biodegradable, Lyocell is great at absorbing color, is very durable, feels incredibly soft and is extremely breathable when wearing.

Ethically Made Without a High Price Tag. Besides picking conscious fabrics, the co-founders personally visit each and every supplier they work with in order to ensure they meet their standards. It’s not often you hear brands visiting their manufacturing warehouses to make sure they align with their own ethics! Plus, being able to partner with certified manufacturers overseas enables the price to stay accessible for us young women.

Elegant, Yet Functional Designs. I like it when a piece of clothing can be beautiful and useful at the same time. In the past, I used to buy things based solely off aesthetic. I wouldn’t care if it was completely impractical, as long as it looked good. With Kestan, you can have the best of both worlds - a sophisticated, timeless design that functions for a busy modern woman. Many of their pieces come with pockets, are quite versatile and easy to transition from season to season.

What I’m Wearing

Hawking Jacket in Grey: This jacket! Ha, that’s the first thing that comes to mind. I just love it so much, I don’t have to say much about it because it’s that good looking. As they put it so well, “The Hawking is perfect for those days when you're feeling indecisive”. Classic yet versatile, you can wear it as a jacket OR a dress! The button and tie work to keep it closed tight to wear as a dress throughout the day. How cool is that? Plus, it has pockets.

Camden Dress: There’s something a little more special about this LBD than the average. First off, the shift style is very flattering, and has two back darts to add shape. It’s made from Lyocell and Cotton so it’s comfortable and feels a lot like silk. But I think what’s most interesting about this dress {& the feature you probably will like the best} are the hidden pockets!
