In the early days of going green, sustainable fashion was anything but stylish. “One of my goals for creating the line was to change that stigma, that eco-friendly can’t possibly be cool,” says Yael Aflalo, CEO and cofounder of Reformation, the perennially on-trend label of vintage-inspired sundresses and baby tees. When the former model first set out to establish her green brand, she was encouraged to downplay her Earth-conscious initiatives for fear that “people would automatically roll their eyes.” Nevertheless, Aflalo persisted, creating her It label and proving that you can change the world without sacrificing your style.
Last week was full of sunny resort swim, but outside the runway, the looks told a different story as Aussie street stylers tried to predict the fickle Sydney weather. The result? The fashion pack’s best trans-seasonal style: layers, boots and blazers in springy, bright colors.

Forget the black-on-black uniform from last winter. Instead, opt for all-cobalt office wear or ballet-pink velvet. As monochrome trends get more colorful by the season, we say the brighter the better. One-tonal outfitting may seem challenging at first. But don’t be intimidated. Just focus on the structural elements of your garb, like texture and shape, and remember that now’s the time to play with accessories—also, a statement red lip goes far in elevating your look.
Read on for some of our favorite colors and shopping options for going full-on monochrome, so you can lead the trend.
Dedicated to creating clothing that lasts—in terms of both fashion and quality—Theory’s latest innovation involves crafting clothing that is better for our planet. Good Wool by Theory raises the bar with a novel approach to fashion manufacturing that is elegant, effective and environmental.
Cofounder and CEO Andrew Rosen is heading this shift with the label’s most sustainable fabric to date. The line’s new colorful wool suits start with wool that is humanely sourced on the rural island of Tasmania, and then ecologically manufactured in Italy using renewable resources. Even the hangtags are made with recycled paper. Good Wool is just the beginning for Theory and Rosen, who has plans to make the label fully sustainable. We spoke to him about this eco-friendly enterprise, his vision for Theory and what the future holds for fine, sustainable fashion.
