With the warmer months comes the desire to shove all of those chunky sweaters to the back of the closet and show some skin! It also presents the opportunity to choose earth-friendly, sustainable, and fairly traded garments instead of disposable, “fast food” fashion. You may be thinking that this might limit your choices to the realm of the hippy-dippy. Happily, a soigné selection awaits you below, with pieces from elegant, understated Eileen Fisher to the rockabilly-inspired stylings of Small Axe... and most everything in between.

The best organic clothing is more than comfortable. We suggest the best eco clothing that offers a way to support sustainable living while sporting the best stylish eco fashion.

The Best You Can Get

  • Xylem Midsummer Delight Tee

    Candace says: I love Xylem because on the one hand, their aesthetic evokes a wild, rainforest, wood nymph vibe. On the other hand, it perfectly melds with tailored separates... like a sprinkling of paprika on an otherwise unremarkable dish. You can wear it to yoga class, to a dance club, out hiking, or paired with a cardigan or jacket at the office.

    • Lettuce edging
    • Sexy, flattering cut (cute neckline, side slits)
    • Stretchy fabric clings without pulling
    • Comes in tasty natural-dye color choices
    • Layers well with other pieces
  • Tinctoria Hemp Bias-Cut Silk Skirt

    Candace says: Some articles of clothing make you feel like you do when you’ve just gotten a new haircut... they’re flirty, girly, and garner lots of compliments. This skirt is it for me... and I can dress it up or down, which gives it a high score in the “day into evening” department. PS: It goes really well with the Xylem tee.

    • Flattering drape
    • Comes in seven intoxicating, saturated color choices
    • Sassy peekaboo green velvet ribbon drawstring
    • Oh-so-touchable
  • Under the Canopy Evelyn Dress

    Candace says: Eco-conscious meets sexy in this little black dress. Its bamboo/spandex blend feels soft to the touch while the classically feminine detailing instantly telegraphs sophistication.

    • 92% bamboo, 8% spandex
    • A-line dress
    • Deep v-knot detail neckline
    • Juliet sleeve
  • Texture Simple Tee

    Candace says: What’s better than the perfect, four-season t-shirt? Layer over it in the colder months; bust it out solo in spring and summer. I think of this tee as the Audrey Hepburn of my wardrobe. Simple, casual, sophisticated, ladylike... and feels great on. In perennially classic red, black, and chocolate.

    • 4-way stretch
    • Cap sleeve
    • Boat neck
    • Hemp, organic cotton, plus 3% lycra for “give”
  • Indigenous Designs Organic Cotton Classic Jean Jacket

    Candace says: Organic cotton denim is one of the best things on offer in the eco-fashion world; it pairs softness and good karma with the durability and classic charm of jeans. This jacket is one of my favorite items because it isn’t afraid to tweak what we expect in a denim jacket, while also retaining enough of the classic to last for seasons to come.

    • Relaxed fit
    • Natty flap pockets
    • Classic lines, modern palette

You will be happy with any of these

  • Blue Canoe Squirt

    Candace says: Vibrant color choices, quality organic cotton, and... it doubles as a top or a bottom. This truly versatile piece is an excellent value, and its classic cut has perennial appeal.

    • Wear it as a swing tube top or a skirt
    • Foldover top provides variable length
    • Comes in five colors
    • Sturdy-weight, durable stretch organic cotton
  • Eileen Fisher for Garnet Hill Organic Cotton Fine-Jersey Cardigan

    Candace says: It can be a challenge to stay cool in the summer heat and maintain a polished appearance when the situation warrants just that. Eileen Fisher has long given women comfortable, elegant wardrobe basics, and her Garnet Hill organic collection puts an earth-friendly face on that tradition. This cardie is a perfect example.

    • Light layer perfect for air-conditioned offices and breezy evenings
    • Made of a double layer of tissue-weight cotton
    • Four colors to suit every wardrobe palette
    • Delicate velvet-beribboned button placket
  • Minawear Low Rise Clam Diggers

    Candace says: Bike-ride, clam-dig, do yoga, picnic, go to brunch... dress them up, dress them down, throw them in the bottom of your weekender bag. They’re elegant, interesting, and down-to-earth all at once. Did I mention super-comfy (as in, not really very low-rise)?

    • Legs hemmed in hemp silk trim
    • 13 mellow-textured colors
    • 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton jersey
  • Stewart & Brown Plaid Draw In Dress

    Candace says: Summertime isn’t complete without some madras, in my (very Eastern seaboard) opinion. This light, breezy, beachy shift will see you through all of your summer activities (except, well, swimming).

    • Organic cotton
    • Cinching tie in back
    • Cool v-neck
  • Small Axe A Day in the Park Skirt

    Candace says: I don’t know what I like better: this skirt, or the Small Axe website. It’s a little bit swing, a little bit rockabilly, and a whole lot of sassy. But back to the skirt. Expertly made, with a delicious drape... wear it with a t-shirt and slides, or vamp it up with peeptoe pumps and a fluttery sleeveless blouse... either way, just for fun, do a little spin to see how far up it flies.

    • Made of organic Hempcel (Hemp and Tencel)
    • Full circle skirt with zipper closure
    • Thick, tied waistband
    • In harlequin print and solid periwinkle
