Here at Brandzaffair we understand that sustainable practices aren’t a fad but rather a lifestyle, and were interested in finding out how to create a green closet. And it’s no surprise that attempting to transition your closet into a green one can be slightly overwhelming, so we’ve identified tips that can make your closet healthier in no time.
The one thing most people don’t take into consideration when thinking about their closets are the products they use for washing their clothes. Take a closer look at labels to ensure that brands claiming their products as “green”, “organic” or “natural” really are.
Recycle & Re-style
While trends are constantly shifting in the fashion industry, find ways to re-use pieces you already own rather than purchasing new items. Even during season changes, layer existing pieces and use new accessories to freshen your look. For example, try styling a dress as a tunic by adding pants or leggings or throw a top on top of a dress utilizing it as a skirt. Additionally, find a good tailor and consider altering pieces that you love but haven’t been wearing instead of getting rid of them completely. Get creative!
Quality over Quantity
Remember, less is more. Purchase with intention to create a sustainable wardrobe. Invest in fewer quality pieces that are versatile and have longevity to make sure your closet stands the test of time. If you can’t think of three different ways to wear an item, maybe it’s not the best fit.
With this minimalistic approach to your wardrobe, you will probably find that you have less daily stress from having too many garments to choose from.
