Buy Second-Hand or Rent
Buying secondhand clothing is a wonderful option both for your wallet and the environment. Not only does it save money, but it also prevents excess clothing from being produced and saves clothing from being wasted. Renting clothes can also be a convenient option, especially for big occasions like weddings. This allows clothes to be fully used and worn before they are discarded, which is especially relevant considering the average consumer throws away 70 pounds of clothing per year.
Consider a Minimalist Wardrobe
Recently, trends such as a capsule wardrobe-- a wardrobe in which you only rely on a limited amount of clothing, or capsule pieces-- have taken the internet by storm. More and more, minimalism is becoming popular when it comes to closets. Not only is this trendy, but it is sustainable! Capsule wardrobes and other minimalist twists on closets are based on the idea of truly using all the clothes you own, and not contributing to mass production or throwing away a lot of clothing. Plus, they give you the opportunity to revamp your style!
