Alternative Fashion: Eco-Friendly Meets Effortlessly Chic Style

There are three things a woman should look for when buying a new piece of clothing:

  1. a design or silhouette that adds a unique twist – it could be a cutout in a cool place, an asymmetrical hemline, a modern zipper detailing, etc.
  2. a soft fabric that feels luxuriously comfortable against your body
  3. a style that doesn’t just make a statement, but does so in a way that makes your look appear effortlessly chic

If you agree with me about any of the above factors, you’ll love the womenswear label, Alternative Fashion, designed for the confident woman who wants to look and feel her best! Designer and owner of Alternative Fashion, Alyssa Couture, uses eco-friendly fabrics to create sophisticated and fresh, yet timeless designs!

After falling in love with their Fall/Winter 2015 dance-inspired collection, here are three must-have pieces that practically jumped out at me!


This short, cream colored dress has the most gorgeous drape and elegant sleeves!  You could dress it up with a chunky necklace and heels to wear on a weekend night-out with friends, or keep it casual and cute by pairing it with your favorite rustic cowboy boots!  Either way, this dress is très chic!


Tired of a plain ol’ button-down shirt? Add a touch of sexiness to your look with this short-sleeve button-down shirt featuring the hottest shoulder cutouts.


The best kind of dresses are the ones that are the most versatile.  This beautiful blue-ish purple dress is sophisticated and professional enough to wear to work, or stylish enough to wear to a dinner out with friends! I can also see this dress as the perfect item to throw on after a tough workout at the gym.

Wanna step up your level of comfort?  Jump into a new pair of colorful sneakers.  If you’re vertically-challenged like me, opt for a pair of high platform sneakers.  If you don’t want your shoes to look like you just came from the gym, opt for a pair of sneakers with a fashionable zig-zag sole.  To make your look even funkier, buy a pair of shoe-laces in your favorite color, and replace the boring neutral ones that came with the shoe.  For a large selection of exotic running shoes at a variety of different price points, check out Solestruck.
