An essential from Zady
Meet the black silk shirtdress from Zady's signature collection. It's incredibly versatile, a perfect transitional piece, and a great blank canvas to build an outfit off. But besides all that good stuff, Zady's organic silk comes from India and is made both ethically and sustainably. Their process doesn't kill the silkworm nor use pesticides. The silk is dyed in a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)-certified facility in India and then sewn in NYC.
If you're not familiar with Zady, they're all about transparency and sustainability in creating classic pieces with premium natural fibers and craftsmanship. Now that's a mission I can get behind. To get a better understanding of how clothing production impacts the environment, learn more about materials, etc. head on over to Zady's New Standard.
I'm very much a rolled-up sleeve, unbuttoned top kind of girl, so I went for the more casual look. But I would also love to use this as layering piece over a tee and wide-legged pants. It would be fun too to ditch the belt and go for the boxier silhouette. I also went for pared down accessories (sunglasses, clutch, watch), except for a little fun in the shoes.
