OAK + FORT Sustainable Summer Fashion 

Open Back Dress 

This summer has made way for tons of trends and funky fashion, but there is nothing better than simple staple pieces that can be styled in various ways. Fast fashion may be the easy route but these throwaway items don’t last long and are made to be disposed of quickly and rebought within a few seasons. OAK + FORT is a Canadian brand that is woman founded and led, with a collection that contains sustainable and eco friendly garments. OAK + FORT originates in Vancouver, and the goal of the brand  is to create a one stop shopping experience where men and women can find sustainable, quality clothing for affordable prices. The OAK Refined Collection features tons of summer pieces to strut on every patio and rooftop pool bar this summer. This line is an environmentally conscious collection that is either organic, recycled or sustainably sourced fabrics. OAK Refined is a collection targeted at reducing the environmental impacts of each of their products. The name “OAK Refined” puts meaning in the essence of the collection — to be more conscious, intentional, and removing the unnecessary throughout the process. If you are looking for clothing that will last you this summer and many more to come, check out these summer essentials from the Oak Refined Collection.

This open back dress hugs the body perfectly and compliments your curves in all the right places. This dress is made from Tencel Lyocell which is sustainably harvested from controlled wood sources providing a softness and breathability to your clothing. The square neckline and midi length adds a bit of formality to the dress, but the slit in the front and open back detailing adds a sexy and chic look. This can be paired with some cute sandals or heels for the perfect date night look.
