10 Trendy Plant-based Womenswear Pieces to Shop at Saks Off 5th Now

In this post, I talk about 10 trendy plant-based pieces to shop at Saks Off 5th now. I recently went shopping at the off-price retailer-- Saks off 5th, in Mission Valley in San Diego California. I was actually surprised to find many cotton pieces throughout the store. I found more cotton pieces than I usually do in other stores.

In this post, I share several pieces that are very trendy that are made from at least 90% cotton, linen, or lyocell plant-based fabrics. Tops, jackets, dresses, pants, etc. are all made in plant-based fabrics, and few with less than 10% elastane/spandex.

Saks off 5th is an outlet store of the luxury department store clothing chain– Saks 5th Avenue. Their outlet store-- Saks Off 5th carries discount luxury fashion, designer clothing, and accessories. They sell luxury clothing and designer brands up to 70% off.

Saks Off 5th is similar to the Nordstrom luxury department store chain where they also have a discount clearance store called Nordstrom Rack.

Most of the “shop the look” links I include are from the Saks Off 5th website, but there was one piece that I found in the store that I couldn't find on the Saks Off 5th website, so I chose to add the the brand name's website shop link.

I also include what makes their brand ethical, sustainable, and/or things they are doing that are helping support the earth and human health. I add a (*) at the beginning of the sentence that talks about their sustainability/ethical practices.

This post does not include all of what they are doing, I am just adding one important thing that they are doing that is sustainable/ethical. Each brand is supporting human health by producing plant-based apparel, because it is healthy and therapeutic to wear plant-based textiles.
