Amour Vert Review: Sustainable Local Fashion

I first “heard” about Amour Vert by walking past their Hayes Valley, San Francisco storefront many a afternoon, drawn by their clean neutral palette with splashes of stripes and florals.

To be completely honest, their price points were a bit of a stretch for me when I became familiar with the brand a few years ago. But I’ve now reached a point where I’m comfortably (financially, and personally) spending more on classic, quality items that will last. In this post, I review a few Amour Vert pieces that I’ve added to my wardrobe over the last year or so.

Overview

If you’re not familiar with the brand, Amour Vert is a sustainable brand headquartered in San Francisco. Not only do they use sustainable fabrics and run limited production to minimize excess waste, but they also work with small factories that are local to the SF Bay Area. As a bonus – for every tee purchased, they plant a tree through their partner American Forest.

Quality

Currently, I have the following pieces from Amour Vert in rotation:

I’ve been impressed with all of the items above so far. The Valentine white tee and Berneen blouse are in my most constant rotation. Both are excellent staples for work (I work in a casual dress environment). Specifically – I like that the Valentine tee is thin enough to drape well, but thick enough to be opaque.

Their dresses are great for both work or for special occasions. The abundant selection of maxi and mini dresses is perfect for weddings, along with LBDs that are classic holiday and evening staples.

Lastly, their floral prints are impeccable – they’re crisp and saturated, photos really don’t do them justice! While I’m a neutrals girl through and through, and only really wear florals for special occasions, I find myself leaning towards including prints in my day to day outfits because of Amour Vert.

Verdict

While some of their pieces are still a smidge too pricey for my blood, Amour Vert’s quality is excellent overall. My best buys in particular are their silk dresses and t-shirts, along with their silk blouses when they go on sale.
