6 Eco-Friendly Women’s Fall Jackets (And a Couple of Coats)

Eco-friendly womens jackets for fall

“I LOVE this weather!” a friend texted today. “Sweaters, scarves, jackets…!” Jackets, indeed. Whether long, short, tailored, or swing, a really great coat has transformative power, turning otherwise drab outfits into full-ensemble looks. Choose one with strong line, decorative details, texture, or color that telegraphs your core sense of style. Here, six bold toppers to help you step into the season, sustainably.

Elroy Azalea Jacket


Canadian designer Leanne McElroy embodies eco-chic. Favoring retro-classic lines with dramatic touches (such as this wide pop-up collar), the designer’s longevity-minded style sensibility makes good sense in times like these. In lightweight organic cotton, the sophisticated Azalea is a smart choice for transitioning into colder weather.

Gramicci Kiera Zip-Up Hoodie


The Kiera zip-up sweater by Gramicci is just the thing to cozy up in while cycling in the country this weekend. Knit with a sturdy hemp/organic cotton blend, this trim topper has the cutest details: a high ribbed collar, elbow patches, a cable-knit yoke, and oversized pockets—just right for toting freshly plucked apples.

FIN Biker Jacket


A style perennial, the biker jacket carries a hint of daredevilry that gives any outfit a bold edge. Season after season, Oslo-based design group FIN creates socially responsible, sustainable collections with serious high-fashion chic. Made of organically grown, fair trade-certified cotton, this trim jacket leaves behind no footprint—it’s carbon neutral.

  1. These are fabulous – and I appreciate that there are at least a few under $100! Would love to see a similar round up of basic cardigans or wraps. This is the sort of thing it’s always tempting to pop into a big box retailer for – but I know there are some wonderful options out there in the eco and people positive design community that would be SO much better!
