The lightweight Everett Jacket features a diamond quilted body with a water-repellent finish, and it folds into a Zocket self-pouch. “Because it’s quilted, it looks great and it’s not too heavy,” says Robinson. “It’s actually one of my favorite outerwear pieces, because I can have on a T-shirt, and once I throw that on, it automatically elevates my look.” Available in black or navy, women’s sizes S-3X and men’s S-5X. Vantage Apparel / PPAI 113235, Platinum / vantageapparel.com Robinson’s favorite piece from the Earthwise line is the Vansport Trek Hoodie. “The drape of it is just so elegant. I love how it falls,” she says. “It’s a wonderful fabric, feels great on my skin and it comes in all the prime, earthy colors.” Made with 45% Repreve recycled polyester, each moisture-wicking hoodie recycles 11-12 plastic bottles and features a kangaroo pocket, tagless label and UPF 50+ protection. Available in eight colors, women’s sizes XS-3X and men’s S-5X.
