Jackets can make or break an outfit. They’re the garment everyone sees first. Your statement piece. It’s important to choose wisely. Here are three trendy types of jacket you should have if you like to be loud and stylish with your looks. Our list comprises timeless pieces, so you never have to worry about being out of fashion. These fashion selections are all ethical, sustainable, and they’ll look good on all genders.
1. Retro sports jackets.
Isn't that the sickest retro jacket you've ever seen?
The colour, the look, the feel. Nothing is sexier than a sporty jacket with bright and bold patterns. They’re comfortable too. Often worn at music festivals and underground music nights, these types of jacket aren’t limited to those experiences. They’re great for gaining everyday outfit attention. And because they’re re-used, preowned, preloved, whatever you want to call it, you’re making an ethical choice, rather than a wasteful one. There's much less carbon footprint in reusing existing materials than making new ones.
2. Vintage denim jackets.

It almost goes without saying that everyone should have at least one vintage denim jacket in their repertoire. Whether it’s plain or something reworked with applique and embroidery, vintage denim is always going to be trendy and fashionable. Preloved vintage jackets cut the carbon footprint of fashion massively compared to making them from scratch, meaning they’re a more ethical and sustainable choice compared to brand new clothes.
We’re so passionate about vintage denim we’re reworking a bunch to a style of our own. We’re sure you’ll love them. They’ll be listed on our online shop when they’re ready.
3. Varsity jackets.
Varsity jackets, also known as letterman jackets, have been around since the 1930’s. Originally associated with American university sports culture, they’ve evolved to represent sporty-stylish fashion worldwide. Some even say they have completely lost their sporty connotations, leaving you with nothing but style.
We’re proud to offer an ultra-trendy varsity jacket that is made from organic cotton and produced in an ethically accredited, renewables powered factory. Get it here.
So there you have it, three trendy types of jacket you should have in your edgy, ethical wardrobe.
