An eco-friendly outfit that is polished, classic, and can be worn over and over again? Yes, it’s possible and easy to achieve with labels like Theory, Reformation, and AG. These brands produce great quality basics that’ll carry you throughout multiple seasons. To get the most wear out of your workwear—even if you’re just working from home—we suggest going with a neutral color palette so that it can be styled in a variety of different combinations. And since no outfit is complete without great accessories, pull the look together with sustainable brands like Akola, Treasure & Bond, and DIFF.
Casual weekend looks
When the weekend rolls around, it’s time to relax and take it easy. And what better way to do it than with a top and jeans that are equal parts comfortable and chic. A relaxed-fit top with ruffle detailing dials up the overall impact of this casual look especially when paired with slightly distressed skinny jeans. Look for pieces from brands like AG and n:PHILANTHROPY. Then to give the outfit a spring touch, complete the look with a lightweight hat, animal-print sandals, and canvas tote—Treasure & Bond always gets it right with fashion-forward yet sustainable accessories.
Activewear and athleisure
Whether you plan on firing up your favorite workout video or simply have a laid-back day ahead, dress for it with an outfit that is designed to move with you. A seamless sports bra and leggings with pocket detailing create the perfect base. Brands like Zella and Girlfriend Collective create functional and fashionable pieces that are great for both activewear and athleisure looks. Add an oversized tank and a lightweight linen jacket on top and bring the outfit together with easy slip-on shoes by TOMS and sunglasses by DIFF.
