About Style, Naturally ($24.95, Chronicle Books): "Style meets substance in this lavishly illustrated, highly informative, and beautifully designed book on sustainable fashion and beauty. Summer Rayne Oakes, fashion model, eco advocate, shows how to make informed choices when shopping. In addition to explaining the basics (from fair trade to organically grown), Summer Rayne showcases hundreds of her favorite designers such as Stella McCartney and Safia Minney and eco-friendly brands such as Levi's, Loomstate, and Aveda that have made earth-friendly materials and sustainable practices a priority. With over 500 photos, pages of resources, and eco-style stories from the hottest trendsetters, it's the ultimate fashion and beauty bible for women who want to feel good about looking good."
Look 1: Urban Green Style
Meeting friends at the new organic bar in town? Layer Lara Miller's interchangeable bamboo knits worn here as a mini dress and cardigan over a pair of Machja skinny-fit dark-wash denim jeans. Finish the look with sparkly vegan pumps by Mink and a recycled chain-link candy-wrapper (yes, candy-wrapper) purse from Ecoist.
Look 2: Organic Cotton Weekend
Make an eco-fashion statement just by relaxing at home in a hand-woven 100% cotton ruffled shirt, created in collaboration with designer Richard Nicoll and Bangladeshi weavers, available at People Tree. Pair with organic denim shorts from Go Indi-Go and a Love/Peace bracelet by Be Carbon Neutral, for the perfect green weekend ensemble.
Look 3: Pretty in Pink (and Green)
A night out in great, green style starts with an organic cotton dress from Stella McCartney and vintage lambskin clutch with organic cotton lining from Teich. Add the finishing touches with Denise Disharoon's silver earrings and Charmoné's velvet d'Orsay heels which, says Oakes, "may quite possibly be some of the sexiest shoes on the planet."
