2023 Fashion Resolutions
The fashion industry is notorious for its large carbon footprint due to overproduction and overcompensation, resulting in excess waste that is burnt or buried in landfills. Fortunately, slow fashion is on the rise, encouraging consumers to take measures to reduce waste and build a sustainable wardrobe instead.
If the process of building a sustainable wardrobe seems daunting, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with 6 must-know tips on how you can create a sustainable closet and ring in the new year with peace of mind that you’re contributing to a better future where the world and its creatures are protected.
- Use What You Own
A common misconception surrounding sustainable wardrobes is that it’s expensive; however, one of the easiest steps you can take is simply to use the pieces you already own. Find new ways to style them or take pride in being an eco-friendly outfit repeater.
- Invest in Quality
On the other hand, if you are willing to spend a little money and are looking for new clothing and accessories, investing in quality is your best bet. These pieces are expertly crafted with durable fabrics, so they’re guaranteed to serve you through numerous wears, eliminating the need to purchase replacements. Quality over quantity always!
- Take Care of Your Clothes
Speaking of long-lasting, you also have some control over the durability of your pieces. While taking care of your clothes sounds like a no-brainer, we’re still stressing the importance of it. Be sure to treat your clothes properly, from wearing and washing to storing and styling. Read their labels and adopt good habits to extend their longevity and maintain their appearance.
- Stock up on Staples
While trendy pieces are fun for the moment, they’re likely not going to stay that way forever. For that reason, sustainable wardrobes focus primarily on staple clothing items, such as denim, plain tees, sweaters, and coats. Opting for neutral shades will also ensure a timeless collection you can use year-round.
- Stay Informed
Building a sustainable collection requires a bit of investigative work. Researching the right fabrics, methods, and brands is essential to saving you time, money, and waste - all benefits of a greener closet. After all, knowledge is power, and with your growing portfolio of information, no sustainable piece of clothing is out of your reach.
