Urban Outfitters has partnered up with Alternative (formerly Alternative Apparel) for "a back to school collection" that's available now. The retailer have cleverly dubbed the five-piece capsule Urban ALTERNATIVE, and it's comprised of a zip hoodie, pullover, henley raglan tee, a t-shirt dress, and an oversized pullover. If the pieces are anything like the eco-friendly tees that made it onto our t-shirt shopping guide then they're softer-than-soft wardrobe staples. Find them at UrbanOutfitters.com and in stores for between $28 and $49.
