9 Fun and Flirty Tops from Responsible Fashion Brands

Warmer weather has arrived, and we’re all ready to have some fun in the sun! We’ve picked nine cute summer tops from some of our favorite indie brands that are No Kill Mag approved. We choose brands that care about people and the planet. How that shows up in their brand can vary. Some might use only second-hand or deadstock fabrics, others have the most inclusive sizing we’ve seen. Bottomline: we love their stories and their styles!

All products featured on No Kill Mag are independently selected by our writers or editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
