16 Trendy and Sustainable Suits and Co-Ords for Everyone

Co-ords and suits are back in style, and we’re thrilled about it! Co-ords, suits, or matching sets are simply two pieces—usually a top and a bottom—that are destined to be together like Daphne and Simon in Bridgerton (did anyone else binge it in one day?)

They require little to no styling, and make it super easy to look put together! Dress them up with some heels, or go for a casual vibe with sneakers.

However you wear them, suits and co-ords are a great staple in any ethical and sustainable wardrobe.

Whether you’re looking for a classic skirt and jacket combo from Afends (Australia), colourful shirt and shorts from nu-in (Portugal), a timeless black suit from Stella McCartney (UK), or a summery top and flowy pants set from Whimsy + Row (US), we hope you fall in love with one of these ethical and sustainable suits and co-ords from ‘Good’ and ‘Great’ rated brands.
