Between last fall’s fur vest moment and, like, every season’s leather motorcycle jacket craze, being an animal activist in fashion can be, well, kind of a bummer.

Take a peek at our favorite polished purses for the summer with our four-legged friends in mind.

Like vegan cheesecake or electric acoustic guitars, the sleeveless blazer is one of those seemingly paradoxical delights that I am so glad actually exist. Pair one with everything from tailored pencil skirts to frayed cut-offs to instantly sharpen your look. And don’t let its lack of fabric fool you, this vest transitions smoothly into autumn when worn over long sleeved blouses and fitted sweaters. Take a look at our favorite styles to find one you can rock straight through summer and beyond.

The Pantone Color Institute named tangerine the “it” color of 2012 and the juicy shade is the perfect way to say hello to spring. The color is a bright orange with red undertones which translates beautifully into both clothing and accessories. Wear it from head to toe as a bold statement or just try a tangerine accessory for a bright pop of color.

On March 7th in Paris, Stella McCartney featured a mix of polkadots, straight silhouettes and sharp tailoring to playfully teeter on the borderline of masculinity and femininity. Her sharply tailored pantsuit received a majority of the runway time, while she used a gold Mylar print for another pantsuit to make it stand out in the crowd. Sexy and casual, her collection is charming.

Stella McCartney sure wants you to smell good: she purchased an entire organic rose harvest exclusively for that purpose. Recreating her eponymous rose scent with the limited-edition Sheer Stella, McCartney applied a foodie maxim to her scent strategy: when in doubt, go organic. The result is a cleaner, fresher scent with touches of green apple and lemon ($62 at Sephora). And if the idea of smelling like a spring day doesn’t entice you, perhaps the bottle will: designed by British artist Phillip Jones, it looks just about as beautiful as you’ll smell.

Thankfully, going green isn’t just about hemp and patchouli, anymore. Nowadays, designers like Stella McCartney and Lauren Bush are creating pieces that might just make you do a double take into the realms of organic cotton. Whether you’re a strict vegetarian or a leather-and-fur junkie, there’s no denying that some of these picks are more than just good for the Earth—they’re pretty good for you, too.
