The best eco-clothing showcase everything that we love about spring: relaxed styles, bright colors, and carefree vibes. Here are five ways to wear this season's picks.

1. A Statement Coat

It's best to keep the rest of the look subdued, and let the eye-catching candy red color do all the talking. This waterproof duffel will stay structured under a simple T-shirt and pants combo, or a tailored suit.

2. Stellar Shades

Make the best of early-morning jogs—by the beach, if you can swing it—with these aviator-style Foxtails sunglasses. Their polarized lenses and oversize frame offer excellent glare reduction.

3. Homely Chic

You don't have to change out of your joggers to run errands on the weekend. Pair it with a snappy chambray shirt and a 100-percent organic cotton striped tank to make the look pop.

4. Activewear

Take khakis—America’s preferred workhorse pants—outside of the office cubicle and into the outdoors. Ibex’s Highlands Pant is a wool-and-cotton blend that’s durable, scuff-resistant, and comfortable.

5. Ride the Waves

If you must buy a pair of boardshorts for spring, why not one that performs in and out of the water with equal gusto? The Cruise boardshorts are made from recycled plastic bottles, and have moisture-wicking and quick-drying technology on them. Vuori Cruise Boardshorts; vuoriclothing.com.
