Pumpkin spice lattes and oversized sweaters are cool and all, but October is a very important month for an entirely different reason — breast cancer awareness. Rebecca Taylor designed a pink top to support BCA, and it's absolutely gorgeous. She's not the only one who's rallied the fashion troops and decided to get involved this month, either. There are tons of ways to support your shopping addiction and still give back at the same time.
While lots of companies are participating in BCA month, this pale pink off-the-shoulder top is one of the most fabulous designs supporting the cause. With a dainty little tie in the back and three-quarter length sleeves, this piece can easily be worn at the office or to a night out with the ladies.
The designer's charity of choice is The Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation, which, according to the site, supports the research of triple negative breast cancer, which is a more rare form of the disease. Although the shirt will cost you $250, half of the proceeds will go directly to the TNBCF. I'd say that's a major win for breast cancer awareness and for your closet. Take a look at the elegant blouse below.
If this top isn't exactly your style, there are still many other ways to shop for BCA. From accessories to outfits, designers are making it easier than ever to start giving back. Pink is the color of the month, thanks to these fabulous fashion finds.
