Fair Friday: Mix and match
April 21, 2017
When it comes to fair fashion, there are a few things that you can do to make your wardrobe more sustainable:
- You can start to clean up your wardrobe and only keep the clothing that you love and wear.
- You can choose to only purchase items that are made under good working conditions (fairtrade), that are made from sustainable fabrics or second hand.
- You can start with only buying the things you truly need instead of buying everything you like.
Whatever you do: do what feels good for you. It takes time before you will have a 100% eco-friendly and sustainable wardrobe. You will (re) discover your style, new brands and collect some must-haves that are perfect in every situation.
One of my must haves is this beautiful pants. It’s made in Europe and what I truly love is that it’s perfect for a business meeting but also with some good old sneakers.
Today I want to inspire you to mix and match your wardrobe.
We all have a lot of favorite items hiding in our wardrobe, waiting to be ‘released’. Think about that vintage top that you loved when you bought it but later on you realized that it didn’t match your wardrobe. Is it still there? Great! Put it on your bed and try to mix it up with at least 3 items. Jeans, a skirt, and may be also classy pants. The great thing about fashion is that everything is possible. Thanks to minimalism I realized that I don’t need to shop every season too like nice. Some trends come back every other year. Stick to your personal favorites and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd.
What’s your favorite mix and match item?
