Power Dressing: Our 18 Favourite Ethical and Sustainable Blazers

Discover our roundup of sustainable and ethical blazers to rock from the boardroom to date night.

Embrace the boss look with eco-friendly blazers

The power suit is back—but this time around it’s not just about sky-high shoulder pads and tiny waists. Dressing for success in the modern day means bold colours, androgynous shapes, and deconstructed garments that are as appropriate on the street as in the boardroom.

Luckily, for those of us that love our fashion to be ethical and sustainable, there are a heap of brands delivering the goods. Here are 18 of our favourites, including the lilac beauty from Bianca Spender (Australia), the organic linen number from Bozena Jankowska (UK), and the comfortable kinetic blazer from Ministry of Supply (US). Let’s blaze this trail.
