EVERY FASHIONISTA KNOWS that style is always changing—but some pieces are timeless. If you’re looking for some forever finds, go the recycled clothing route. Rachael Nachtwey, owner of the Madison-based online boutique Evolve, created these three distinct looks built upon one very versatile skirt. Now that’s sustainable couture. –Emma Whitford


THE ROCKER: George gray and black leopard print pencil skirt (in all three outfits), Xhilaration black faux leather motorcycle jacket, United Colors of Benetton sheer woman print blouse, vintage Atlantico original gold metallic purse, Levi Strauss black belt, tri-metal teardrop earrings, Naot black booties.

THE ROMANTIC: GO International sheer violet lace blouse, black tank, black leather belt, vintage patent leather black purse, gothic chunky gray bracelet, Bandolino black heels.

TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS: Van Heusen Studio black ruffled cardigan, Gap white tank with lace trim, black leather belt, vintage gold and black beaded bracelet, Francesca’s cranberry and gold clutch, Mossimo silver and gold faux snakeskin flats.
