It’s that time of year again when we set our New Years’ resolutions, and we’re not talking about cutting down on chocolate or giving up your favourite tipple, we’re talking about fashion resolutions. The fashion industry has come a long way in the past decade, with many of our favourite brands shifting to sustainable fabric choices with ethical processes at their core.
As we look at our own wardrobe, we asked ourselves what can we be doing, from supporting local brands to making more considered purchases, here are the fashion resolutions we’ll be making this year.
#1 Buy less, buy better
We’re putting a focus on buying less but buying better this year, with more considered collections and some designers totally scrapping seasonal styles altogether. We’re big fans of investing in quality pieces that will last a lifetime. Especially when you are shopping for your wardrobe staples, find timeless jeans, coats and knitwear that you will be able to dig out for years to come.
The impact of reducing consumerism and production has a positive effect on the planet but we need to continue to strive to do more. Buyer less but better will mean less water wasted, fabric ending up in landfills and all in all helping the environment.
Number two in our New Year’s fashion resolutions is to educate ourselves more about the brands we’re buying and their ethical initiatives and fabrications. With Scandi brands such as Stand Studio and Skall Studio at the forefront of reducing, reusing, and repairing learn about their processes and become part of the movement.
