Simple Tips on How to Become A More Responsible Fashion Consumer
Have you ever felt as if your wardrobe is stuffed with abandoned clothes that you never wear? Have you started feeling guilty about the number of pieces you own but never get to wear out? We understand how that feels and mostly, we know how irresponsible fashion consumption choices can make you feel. With more and more fashion trends emerging by the hour, most of us are always trying to keep up with these ever changing trends. With retail giant fashion brands like Zara, Uniqlo and H&M, purchasing these clothes are a very convenient option.
Fashion can be considered as a vehicle of self-expression in how you portray yourself. However, there are negative connotations surrounding fashion, particularly in repeating outfits. However, due to recent concerns surrounding climate change, sustainable and ethically made clothing, people have started contemplating their fashion choices.
A new consciousness of buying and owning unethically made clothing has risen. Mass-making methods of clothing production from large companies have led to unethical fashion practices, to which people and designers are finally taking a stand against it. Outlined below are several suggestions on how to make better fashion consumption choices:
1. Focus The Contents Of Your Wardrobe On Ethical Labels
All it takes to identify sustainable and ethical fashion brands is to do a simple Google search. Read up on small businesses and designers that have pledged to make their fashion more ethical. You can also use social media to discover more budding designers. This will also help you bring a fresh take to your wardrobe and give you better options that are not as common as going to the mall and buying it.
Renting clothing has become the new fashion trend, given that it’s a more ethical approach to wearing clothes, rather than storing outfits one person can only wear once. Renting also helps you create new looks without having to spend a lot of money. Your style is always changing and so should your wardrobe. You don’t necessarily have to buy things to create a statement. At Closet Space you can hire cocktail dresses through online dress hire. Reduce your carbon footprint by renting clothes from Closet Space’s curated collection of clothes, ranging from the most talented and well-known designers.
You can easily curate your wardrobe using different pieces and creating new looks. Celebrities have also started to adopt these practices into their everyday life. Use interchangeable classics and create capsule looks.
4. Swap, Thrift, Share
Who doesn’t love a good thrift shop visit? Thrift shops help you find unique pieces that you wouldn’t find so easily otherwise. These are pre-loved pieces in good condition that you can buy for a lesser price. You can also choose to borrow from your friends if you’re not doing that already.
5. Special Events
Running to a boutique to buy a new dress for a special event that you will never wear again can be an incredibly stressful process. Splurging a large amount of money on one event is completely unnecessary and impractical. Instead, rent clothes from online stores like Closet Space that offer curated collections from the best designers.
At Closet Space, we believe in providing our customers with fashion choices that resonate with them. When you rent an outfit from us, you are not only saving money, but you are also reducing your fashion footprint and saving wardrobe space. We also offer complimentary styling sessions with our stylists to get your groove on. What are you waiting for?
