We’ve all been influenced to buy something our favorite celebrity was spotted wearing. Whether it’s a jacket Beyoncé was seen in or a workout set Taylor Swift wore to the gym, it’s hard to resist clicking “add to cart.”
In the past, sustainable fashion wasn’t exactly a Hollywood go-to. But now, more celebrities than ever before are opting to make their closets more eco-friendly. Whether that’s avoiding fast fashion brands or only supporting designers that don’t use fur, these steps in the right direction can inspire millions to do the same.
Selena Gomez is one of those celebrities and has been spotted in everything from vegan leather to sustainable loungewear. We scoured the internet to find the planet-friendly items she has in her closet, and these could become your new favorites.
Selena Gomez Style: 7 Sustainable Pieces
1. Denim Overalls
Selena’s Pick: Wrangler Overalls
Gomez rocked a pair of vintage Wrangler overalls, and you can, too. Aside from searching for a pair at local or online thrift stores, there are also plenty of vintage options available on Etsy. Buying used is always better than buying new, and long-lasting denim is a great place to start.
2. A Sustainable Sundress
Selena’s Pick: Reformation Laurent Dress
Sustainable dresses are a must for spring and summer. Gomez is a fan of Reformation’s collection, and this dress in particular is primarily made from viscose from sustainably-managed forests.
3. Multipurpose Swimsuit
Selena’s Pick: Solid & Striped Anne-Marie Swimsuit
Solid & Striped’s swimwear is made with 78% sustainable materials, including recovered fishing nets, industrial plastic, and fabric scraps. Also cool? Gomez wore this swimsuit as a bodysuit, essentially giving you two staples for the price of one.
4. A Comfy Crewneck
Selena’s Pick: Reformation Miles Hoodie
If you’re still not convinced that sustainable loungewear is having a moment, check out this Reformation hoodie. While Gomez’s go-to (the Miles Hoodie) is currently sold out, the brand has an entire collection of eco-friendly hoodies and sweatshirts to choose from.
5. Faux Leather Skirt
Selena’s Pick: Nanushka Faux Leather Skirt
If you’ve been looking for the perfect vegan leather skirt, this might be it. While it’s pricey, it’s bound to last a lifetime. The brand also only works with suppliers that meet its code of conduct, which addresses forced labor, the regulation of overtime work, and other supply chain issues.
6. A Ribbed Crop Top
Selena’s Pick: Cotton Citizen Verona Ribbed Long Sleeve Crop Top
Cotton Citizen’s products are made with organically-grown materials and sewn at ethical manufacturers. They’re known for their timeless staples, and Gomez was spotted wearing this top with matching bottoms.
7. A Cozy Crewneck
Selena’s Pick: Everlane The Cashmere Crew
A cozy crewneck is a closet staple. While Selena’s exact Everlane cashmere crew is sold out, this option is nearly identical and comes in 11 colors and sizes XXS to XXXL.
Everlane is known for its high-quality, sustainably-made items. It also works with third-party auditors to “evaluate factors like fair wages, labor conditions, reasonable working hours, and a safe working environment.”
