Exciting news: I just became a college ambassador for LSTN headphones! These babies are the real deal. Not only is the sound quality unparalleled (beats Beats, trust me), but each set purchased helps fund the Starkey Hearing Foundation, restoring hearing to people in need from the U.S. to Uganda. Good for the ears, and not too bad on the eyes either. I love how the polished wood recalls an acoustic guitar, lending a warm and rustic touch an otherwise sleek design. I've been slipping my Beechwood Troubadours over a beanie while walking around the city and riding the subway. Of course, LSTN's materials are also completely authentic and eco-friendly, so they win my seal of approval.
I recently got to thinking, what other accessories would look cool in wood? Rodarte's wood grain dresses in rich mahogany hues come to mind, but I've rounded up some pieces that are a little more wearable. There's Margiela's cut-out booties and McQueen's classic clutch, plus Tarte Cosmetics's bamboo packaging and Charlotte Olympia's chic interpretation of Pandora's box. When style and sustainability cross paths, it's easy to get lost in the woods.
