Tips to Make Your Wardrobe More Sustainable

These days, there is a shift toward sustainability in fashion, but you still need to be on the lookout for the best fashion, as much of it is only partially sustainable. Still, there are plenty of other ways to make your wardrobe sustainable and contribute to better commercial practices.

Buy Quality 

One of the best ways to make your wardrobe sustainable is to buy quality clothes, this might mean spending a little more at the outset, but it also means buying items that will last for many years before needing to be replaced. It’s sensible to buy some essential items of higher quality. 

Essential items that you need for your wardrobe might change depending on the season or occasion. In the winter, you need quality boots and coats, but for the home, you need high-quality playsuits now and then. You can buy quality items online and from thrift stores. 

Ethical Brands 

One of the best ways to make your wardrobe sustainable is to find the best sustainable brands and stick to them. In recent years there has been a shift toward sustainability, there are even fast fashion brands promoting sustainable ranges, but these ranges are only partly sustainable. 

If you don’t know whether a brand is sustainable or not, you can look at the label; if it uses materials that are hard to pronounce, such as polyurethane, chances are it has a petrochemical origin. Another option is to check their website and research their supply chain for more details.   

Capsule Wardrobe 

A capsule wardrobe is an excellent way to make your wardrobe more sustainable; it is also an excellent way to make your wardrobe more cost-effective and creative. Capsule wardrobes are all about economy; they encourage you to buy higher quality items that are more sustainable. 

Not only will you be buying less clothing, but you will also be buying better quality items to mix and match. The system trains you to search for better, more sustainable brands and buy from them less often, so you always have interesting outfits to wear that are quality and last years.  

Repair Clothes 

If you have a capsule wardrobe full of high-quality clothing, you will probably be good at repairs. Repairing your clothing instead of replacing them is one of the most sustainable ways to invest in your wardrobe. But while it is cost-effective and sustainable, you might become bored with it. 

If you become border with your high-quality items, you have options. Why don’t you patch them up and sell them online for someone else to use – they should still have a lot of life left in them – then you can simply invest in another item of quality clothing to freshen up a capsule wardrobe.   

Thrift Stores 

Thrift stores can be found in the local area, but these days most people shop online. There are many thrift store platforms to choose from, some of which have a sustainability focus, so as you offload some of your clothing, take a look around for some new items to update your wardrobe.
