Sustainable, eco-conscious clothing and accessories aren't just a passing fad; LA is the proud epicenter of a national movement toward American-made, environmentally responsible fashion that's cool, trend-setting, and deliciously organic. No longer reserved for hippies and hikers, the current City of Angels sartorial scene strikes a harmonious balance between going green and remaining high fashion via respectful, humane manufacturing practices, reworking and recycling old materials, and utilizing organic textiles and dyes.
With Earth Day coming up this Friday, April 22nd, we've rounded up 12 pieces leading the cool-girl, eco-friendly pack, all of which demonstrate that the so-called sustainability trend is here to stay. Whether you're looking for an artful LBD, a chill crop top, the perfect bag, or luscious jewelry, designers and stores like Reformation and Androgyny Design will fulfill your look good, feel good, do good needs.
