3 Simple Ways To Dress More Sustainably
Work In Progress
To give you an example, back around 2020 my daughter got this pretty Max Studio faux leather jacket from Marshalls. It looked like leather and was also really cute and soft.
Fast forward 2 winter seasons later and the faux leather is literally crumbling. It’s unwearable and unrepairable.
Shortly after this happened to her jacket, I noticed the same thing happening with one of mine.
Sadly, neither of us has had these jackets for very long and there is very little that we can do to salvage them;however, what we can do is learn from this unfortunate situation.
Dressing sustainably is not just about how and where the fashion is made. It also involves how we consume. This is the piece that I am most concerned with. I also think that it’s the area where we can individually have the most impact.
Today I am going to share 3 habits that I am personally practicing to be more sustainable in how I dress.
Learn about fabrics
Learn shapes and fabrics that will flatter your figure
Buy the best quality that you can afford.
Choose classic styles that flatter
Choose flexible pieces that can be worn multiple seasons and multiple occasions
