Staying Sane in Isolation
It’s now been – ahem – a while since Boris announced the country-wide lockdown, with the entire of the U.K.’s non-essential workforce suddenly working from home full time.   After the initial giddiness at the prospect of an extra half an hour in bed, not having to battle the rush hour Northern Line twice a day, and a new work wardrobe comprising mainly loungewear and sliders, the reality of the situation settled in.

Fashion Week and It’s Lockdown…
While we all thought we’d soon be planning our Summer wardrobe and adding those holiday buys to our basket, I think we can all agree that life doesn’t half surprise you. If you’d have told me at the beginning of the year that I would be spending the first bank holiday of the decade in PJ’s, cradling a bottle of wine in front of Disney+, I never would have believed you... yet here we are.

How To Be More Eco Friendly With Fashion

Fast fashion is killing the environment we live in. So it is our responsibility to look more into where we buy our clothes from.I’m going to talk you through some tips on how you can be more eco-friendly towards the planet when shopping for clothes.

  1. Recycle

This is the main thing to aim for when it comes to helping the environment, and there are so many ways you can recycle your clothes.

– Charity shops – a brilliant way of donating to help good causes and recycling your old clothes. But, as good as this is, charity shops sometimes throw away clothes, which doesn’t help the situation. That’s where the next option comes into place

– Redesign – A fun way of recycling your clothes is redesigning them. Whether you sew or iron on patches, cut them up to make something different. There are loads of ways of doing it. Just get creative

– Car boots – a way of making extra cash and selling the things you don’t want! And someone else gets a bargain.

  1. Resist online sales

Are you a sucker for those online sales? Or when your favourite online store does a free next day delivery and you just want to throw everything you see in the new in section into your basket? I too have been sucked into that hole of wanting to buy everything in the new in sections online.

But this all comes down to will power and saying no to that extra order of clothes. This not only saves you money, and saves the extra packaging.

A lot of online packaging just isn’t recyclable, so if you are shopping online and that store you have nearby, why not save the plastic? Take your own shopping bags and try stuff on in person. As returns can take ages when you buy something online, find out it doesn’t fit so you send it back. It’s a win-win really! Shopping is more fun in person in my eyes, as you get to try on clothes and items to get more of a feel for them rather than just pictures or videos if the items on models.

  1. Go Vintage

Vintage stores are another good place to get yourself something pre-loved but also unique. Re yoked vintage and retro clothes are perfect for those with a unique style. Pre-loved clothes are always a winner and always look so stylish when added to more modern accessories. Charity shops are also gold mines for amazing vintage pieces!

There are more ways than this to go eco-friendly with fashion. So get creative!
