Sarah Jessica Parker is using her street style prowess to shed some light on key environmental issues
Sarah Jessica Parker has long stood as one of our fav street style stars thanks mainly to the fact that we catch her running errands and attending events in NYC on almost a daily basis. However, recently the Sex and the City actress has been putting her high profile to very good by literally wearing the charities she backs.
Taking to the streets yesterday, we clocked the 50-year-old style icon taking her adorable daughters Tabitha and Marion on their school run. It wasn't until she was on her way home that we got a proper look at her ensemble and saw that she was sporting a bold sweater.
Anticipating that this could be the next Kenzo 'Tiger Face' or Lichtenberg 'Homies' jumper, we gave it a closer look to find that scrolled in white were the words; 'Happy Oceans, Happy Life'.
It may be a cute slogan in itself but after a bit of research we learnt it's so much more than just a springtime staple.
She's in fact rocking a sweater from G-Star and Bionic Yarn’s collaboration with Parley for the Oceans, an organisation committed to raising awareness about our oceans’ vitality. Designed by none other than Pharrell Williams — seriously is there anything that guy doesn't do?! — it's a purchase that not only has major style cred but will also go towards preserving the health of our planet. An excuse to go shopping if there ever was one.
True to from, SJP made the sweater her own by styling it with her trademark boyfriend jeans and chic blue ballet pumps. What a pro, huh?
The more seasoned Sarah Jessica Parker fans amongst you will know that this isn't the first time the A-lister has embarked on a charitable campaign through the medium of fashion; previously she's stepped out in a Michael Kors’s ‘Watch Hunger Stop’ tee. The campaign, which Kors promotes annually, honours World Food Day (October 16) and brings the designer’s and the United Nations World Food Programme’s efforts to fight hunger globally to light.
Sarah's 'Happy Oceans, Happy Life' sweater is still available to buy in G-Star stores worldwide and although it will set you back a cool £125, it will go towards helping secure the safety of the most vital source we have on the earth. So yeah, it's worth forking out for.
SJP, you're an inspiration to us all...
