Marine layer has the perfect pieces for the office, casual days out, date nights, and lounging at home. Their claim is to redefine soft, so you will want to wear your t-shirts everyday of the week. Marine Layer’s custom fabric is developed with recycled materials and crafted ethically in their factories. In their Fabric Glossary, they include materials for each fabric with descriptions of the feel and characteristics of each. This is the perfect brand to buy from if you are in the market for some quality, summertime outfits, beach clothes, and sustainable basics for the upcoming season.
Marine Layer has implemented a t-shirt recycling program, where you can donate and receive store credit. They have diverted more than 500,000 t-shirts from the landfill. Marine Layer is committed to transparency about their business practices, outlined by their ML Impact Report on their about page of the website.
One of our favorite pieces is the Corinne Maxi Dress! This is the dress for all occasions. Wear it to the beach as a cover-up or pair it with sandals for a nice dinner. It is 100% cotton, comes in 6 different colors, and the size range is XS to XL. The Corinne Maxi Dress is the perfect summertime dress, whatever the activity is. Comfy and casual without compromising on style.
