How To Dress Sustainably This Autumn?
On this day and age, we are becoming more aware of our environmental footprint. “Buying less and buying better” is the mantra we are now all trying to live by. Recently, we started looking at sustainable practices and asking ethical questions: “Who made my clothes?”, “What materials are used to make my clothes?”, “How are people treated who make my clothes?”. The harsh reality is, ethical and sustainable fashion generally costs a little bit more. However, if you change your mindset and start focusing on long term benefits you will have a new ethical wardrobe in no time. Autumn - It’s the perfect time to change your shopping habits by replacing your fast fashion with more ethical alternatives: Find out our favourite tips on how to shop sustainably this Autumn!
Shop In Charity Or Second Hand Shops
Emma Watson once said. "Every new item of clothing made has a substantial carbon footprint attached to its manufacturing; but the amount of new energy needed to produce vintage clothing is zero.” If you are looking to refresh your wardrobe this autumn don’t forget to check second hand or vintage shops. You can give vintage clothes a new life and find some absolute gems. Shop less, shop better
Look At Quality Over Quantity
If you buy more expensive and better quality clothes they will last you a lot longer. Buying more eco-friendly pieces but less frequently will save you time and money in the long run. It will also reduce your carbon footprint. Also, try to follow our favourite rule: every time you buy a new piece of clothing try to donate something else from your wardrobe.
Commit To Statement Pieces
Invest in a few statement pieces this fall. They don’t have to cost a fortune, find clothes and accessories that you like and that you feel most comfortable wearing. See what else in your wardrobe goes well with it. A good example of a statement piece would be a bag. What style bag are you carrying the most? Do you prefer classic or vintage?
