Best sustainable clothing brands 2021: 40 ethical fashion lines

Dress for success this year — for yourself and for the future of the planet.

Fast fashion is fun, but it’s time to slow it down and really consider the environment when shopping for new clothes and accessories. With so many sustainable and eco-friendly brands flooding the market, it’s not hard to budget for the health of the eco-system while you shop. But, it doesn’t have to be expensive.

“Ethical” and “sustainable” can be confusing terms, as they mean different things for different brands and shoppers. To put it simply, sustainable practices may involve making the dyes from eco-friendly materials that are chemical-free, using renewable energy in the production process, using durable fabrics so clothing lasts as long as possible and recycling old materials like scrap fabric and even plastic bottles into new garments. Basically, the less harm to the planet, the better.

Christian Siriano On Secondhand Stigma, Fashion in Politics, and Cori Bush

As pop culture puts it, shopping in thrift stores can trigger painful memories (see: Marge Simpson reworking a Chanel-esque suit, Pen15‘s tween leads pawing over a secondhand Tommy Hilfiger shirt, or Jenny Humphrey’s entire character arc). But thanks to a growing resale market—with an expected value of $64 billion in the next five years—the firsthand shame of secondhand shopping is finally starting to fade.

In order to normalize the practice of buying used, thredUP, one of the top destinations for online consignment shopping, tapped Christian Siriano to create the first universal logo to represent gently worn clothes. Much like the symbol for recycling, thredUP’s hanger-shaped logo is intended to be worn as a badge of honor for your thrifted find.
