Learning how to navigate how to be sustainable in fashion can be challenging. So here are 5 ways that you start to curate an ethical and sustainable capsule wardrobe.
1. Decide your essential key pieces!
Depending on your unique style, figure out which key pieces you’ll base your wardrobe on. If you’re a casual dresser, then this could be a good pair of jeans, plain t-shirts, a warm jumper and a seasonal appropriate coat.
2. Choose your colour scheme!
To make sure that your key pieces work together, pick a colour scheme so that you can ensure all of your pieces are interchangeable and that you can easily build an outfit by mixing and matching your key pieces.
3. Find high-quality accessorise!
Accessorise are the key way that you can change up your outfits and add a touch of something special to your look! Invest in high-quality items that you can treasure for a long time and that will never go out of style.
4. Pick brands that you love!
The idea of a capsule wardrobe is that you have a wardrobe of timeless and stylish outfits without the need to constantly purchase ‘fast-fashion’ items based on what’s on trend. So make sure that when you do need to purchase new items, that you’re investing in brands that produce quality items and you know you will wear for a long time.
5. Invest in second-hand!
If you are in the mood for a little shop, why not do so in a more conscious way and invest in something pre-loved! Vintage shops, charity shops, car-boot sales and online re-sale websites are a great way to give a loving home to something new without costing the planet.
