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 Shop More Sustainably

T he Fashion Industry is one of the largest contributing industries to the demise of the environment. Issues like Climate Change, Global Warming and Fast Fashion can all sound quite daunting to you and me, however there are easy ways you can make a difference and help; all by just changing the way you shop. This year for Earth Day we’re helping you do your part, by shopping sustainably. 

Avoid the High Street!

Fast Fashion is the cycle of inexpensive clothing that is rapidly produced and promoted to the consumer by retailers, as a response to the latest catwalk trends.  

High Street shops contribute to Fast Fashion by mass producing new clothing every six weeks or less.  

In order to put a stop to this, you can help by investing in higher quality products from more luxurious brands that don’t follow the toxic cycle of mass production.  

Not only is this more rewarding for yourself, but also more beneficial for the environment! 

Shop Second-Hand

Shopping second-hand is much better for the environment as it gives you a chance to repurpose clothes, rather than sending them to landfill.  

Vintage and second-hand shopping can be the source for some beautiful and individual pieces that give your wardrobe an extra bit of edge. 

As well as this, donating unwanted clothing to charity shops and shopping there is a great way to give back to charities and provide help for good causes. 

If you are looking to sell old clothing or just enjoy shopping online, you can use apps like Depop, Vinted, eBay and Vestiaire Collective to find some real gems! 

 Get Creative!

Instead of buying new clothes, you could always repurpose your current ones. 

You can cut, crop, sew and embellish to make an old and unworn piece of clothing like brand new!  

Not only can this be a new and creative hobby, but it also more sustainable to the environment.

I would consider myself to be a shopaholic and in the famous words of Carrie Bradshaw, “I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.”
