Sustainable Fashion is taking over the market and everyone is talking about it. It’s something that we should consciously imbibe in our lives. Use this article as your 101 guide to understand and inculcate sustainability with fashion and styling
Switching to Sustainable Fashion Options isn’t the easiest but there are several ways you can do it-
Thrifting is often looked down upon but it’s the best way to find the statement, vintage and rare pieces. Thrifting is absolutely okay and is being normalized on Instagram after years of disregarding it. Thrifting helps you upcycle old clothes use them in different ways rather than buying new pieces which ultimately reduces production.
Reselling is almost like thrifting, but this is mainly done with designer pieces like bags, belts, wallets, and shoes. You can get your hands on luxury pieces for half the price and you’re also doing your bit.
Try renting heavy Indian Wear that you will wear only once. Instead of buying these pieces, try renting them out, you can save money and also get more variety.
THINGS YOU CAN REUSE/UPCYCLE
Belts, designer Indian Wear, classic dresses, vintage jeans can be stored, reused, repurchased, and resold to make the best use of them. You can get hold of the best pieces and also save up l the moolah and get your hands on super cool stuff.
You can always re-use or up-cycle denims, it’s the best option. You can find vintage denim pieces like bootcut jeans, flared denims, jeans with embellishments and several other cool styles. Denims last for years, and one good piece can last you a few years, to say the least, you can thrift denim pieces to save money and invest in trending styles and also contribute towards a greener and better tomorrow.
Fur Jackets, Denim Jackets, Statement Leather ones all have a special place in our closets. Instead of splurging on the new purchases, try upcycling these pieces, re-purchasing them, or storing them safely and passing them down as heirlooms. Jackets are a great investment, so don’t hesitate to spend on them but spend wisely and invest when you need to.
Bags are precious for all the ladies. Limited edition, classic bags are a must-have in the closet. Find your favourite pieces on reseller sites or store them in dust bags safely as heirlooms and pass them down. Bags can never get old and best when passed down from generation to generation.
