For a lot of us trying to embrace sustainable fashion, one theme comes back over and over again: overwhelm. So many of my styling clients or sustainability newbies tell me “I want to start shopping sustainably; I want to get into sustainable fashion, but I just don’t know where to start, it’s overwhelming.” And to this, I say “I know”.
Transitioning to a sustainable wardrobe can be an intimidating task, even for the most motivated of us. In my years of practice, I’ve put together a simple process, so you can make the switch seamlessly.
Growing up in the 90s-00s, I used to watch TV shows glorifying shopping and overconsumption; I used to be in awe in front of my favourite characters’ massive closets and dozens of shopping bags. And as I couldn’t afford to buy tons of quality clothes, I thought fast fashion was the only option.
And then I realised it was not sustainable, and it was an incredible waste of money and resources. How to break up with fast fashion? I’m breaking it down today.
If you’ve been around here for long enough, then you know how I feel about rules: to summarise, I’m not too keen on them. I don’t like the idea of forcing people into a box. Don’t get me wrong, I totally get it; it can make things easier and fun!
But when it comes to certain things, I actively stay away from any category-related stuff. And that applies to style and body type theories.
We’ve all heard the saying “All the glitters isn’t gold”. And it might sound cliché, but unfortunately, it stands true; especially when it comes to sustainable fashion and sustainability as a whole. I mean, there is a reason why the word “greenwashing” is so trendy at the moment: some brands are using sustainability as a means to make a few extra bucks, which makes it difficult to tell if a brand is truly sustainable.
