Raise your hands if you spend at least 10 to 15 minutes of your morning scanning your closet just to say, “I have nothing to wear.” Well, you are not alone!
Many of us are followers of “fast fashion.” That means purchasing outfits that are in trend. However, fashion trends change as quickly as they set in. As a result, you end up with clothes that can no longer be worn.
If you dig a bit deeper into the concept of fast fashion, you’ll know that 80% of all textiles go to landfills every year. Furthermore, 500,000 tons of microfibres are released into the ocean, which is equal to 50 billion plastic bottles.
Perhaps, it won’t be wrong to say that fast fashion significantly impacts the natural environment. Dealing with this situation should be one of your prime concerns.
Fortunately, building a capsule wardrobe could lower the negative impact.
Here’s what you can include in your closet.
1. Button-Down Shirt
A button-down shirt can be worn on every occasion.
Going for an interview?…Pair the white shirt with tailored trousers and a blazer for a professional look.
Hosting a dinner party?… Combine a black shirt with a leather skirt and gold jewelry.
In a nutshell, a solid-colored button-down shirt is the epitome of versatility.
2. Black Blazer
An all-black look never ceases to amaze, don’t you agree? You can add a black blazer to your casual outfit to create a chic appearance. Or, you can style an oversized blazer with denim shorts for a street-style look. It will work as a base for almost every type of outfit.
3. Silk Dress
Every girl must own at least one silk dress in her closet. This dress is perfect for dates, girls’ nights, or corporate parties. If you are going for a comfortable appearance, dress it up with strappy sandals.
However, make sure to buy attires made of washable silk so you can re-wear them. It will assist you with your goal of becoming environmentally responsible.
4. Straight Leg Jean
This one is a given. A comfortable pair of straight-leg jeans is something that every girl desires, regardless of body shape. This is perfect for effortless and lazy-day looks. Wear it with a white t-shirt, and you are ready to steal the spotlight.
5. White Sneakers
You truly can’t go wrong with classic white sneakers. They offer style and comfort in one and go with almost every type of attire- from professional to party look. If you like, you can even wear them under your wedding dress, ’coz why not?
6. Everyday Bag
Though it’s been quite a long since the “what’s in my bag?” trend became outdated, you still need a stunning-looking yet functional bag. Invest in a high-quality and spacious bag. It will allow you to pack all your essentials in an organized way.
7. Gold Accessory
The last essential on our list is a gold accessory. It could be an earring or pendant, depending on your taste. It will help add a little sparkle to your overall look.
Wrapping It All Up
Understand that you don’t necessarily need hundreds of clothes to look stylish. Instead, you need timeless attires to create your statement style, which is also eco-friendly.
