This is a small guide for buying less, shopping better and transforming your look in the process.
First of all please remember, trends come and go, but style is forever. To be truly stylish, it does not take a huge budget or walk in closets full of designer clothes. It comes with simplicity and personal touches. The first suggestion is: keep it simple. You should have timeless pieces that will not go out of style. A good pair of denim, a white tee and vegan leather loafers/white sneakers will never let you down. Keeping it simple will make you look more elegant, although you can always elevate your look with a variety of accessories.
Another tip is: do not buy anything for only one occasion. It is true, we are all guilty of it. Instead of purchasing something specifically for certain events, try to have a few dressier pieces in your wardrobe that are more versatile. If you purchase something simple and classic, you’ll be able to wear it again. Be realistic and honest with yourself. Clothes are meant to fit us, not the other way around If it does not fit you any more, it is time to sell it or donate it.
Remember, no clothing should go to waste. Sometimes we are all falling for marketing deals, especially when it comes to investment designer pieces just because there is a discount. Never buy something just because it’s a great deal. No matter how affordable it was, if you wear it once, it is a waste of money! Take time to discover new brands. It’s great to have your core brands who you trust, but there are always so many new, sustainable brands hitting the market that are waiting to be discovered. From high-end designer labels to more affordable mid-range brands, keep exploring all year round. You’ll end up with some truly special pieces. Most likely to be more sustainable and ethical!
