As I started researching sustainable fashion, I realized that finding colorful pieces was a very difficult task. Understandably, most sustainable brands create neutral pieces so that they are timeless and easier to mix and match for a capsule wardrobe. However, anyone like me needs some bold colors to mix into their wardrobe. Here are just a few of the brands I’ve found who create sustainable AND colorful pieces…
BIG BUD PRESS
Known for their incredible jumpsuits, Big Bud Press is an LA based label that produces all of their clothing in the USA. They also recently opened their first storefront in LA! Congrats, Big Bud Press!
Everlane is the perfect place to get your wardrobe staples! One of the things I love the most about Everlane is their brand transparency. On their website you can see the breakdown of exactly where your money is going and how each of your pieces are made.
All of Meemoza’s (cotton) pieces are made from organic cotton and reclaimed deadstock fabrics from fashion houses that over-ordered.
People Tree is hands down one of my favorite sustainable clothing brands. Based out of UK, People Tree overs clothing in fun and colorful patterns, as well as solid staples.
POPPY AND PIMA
Poppy and Pima primarily works with artisans in Peru and specializes in pieces made of Alpaca wool and Pima cotton (hence the name).
Nooworks is a women run brand, based in California. Their funky prints are perfect for those of us that want to keep things sustainable while making a statement.
My favorite pieces from Nooworks are their rainbow jump suit (past season, pictured below) and Coveralls Pink Corduroy.
Jessica Rey’s brand started as a modest but trendy swimsuit brand (all ethically made of course), but she has expanded her brand into dresses, skirts, and more.
My favorite piece from Jessica Rey is her Button-Down Canary Skirt.
If you love rainbows, then Awkward Child is the brand for you! All of their pieces are handmade to order in Australia.
Reformation makes the most stunning and feminine pieces. All of their pieces are created from sustainable materials, including repurposed vintage clothing.
All of Elegant Tees products are ethically made in Nepal. They have some great staple, easy to wear dresses in beautiful colors!
It’s about time for some athletic apparel! Outdoor Voices works hard to use sustainable materials for their products. Their lightweight Rec Poly fabric is crafted from post-consumer water bottles, they use sustainably raised wool, and their Seamless collection also works to decrease waste (no scraps).
And that’s a wrap! Also never forget that buying used clothes is a great sustainable option for clothing.
