The Importance of Buying Locally and Ethically

Incorporating fashion in your life can be quite costly. Especially nowadays, trends just keep on popping out from everywhere like wild mushrooms. When one trend sprouts, another dies, thus, what you bought three months ago may already be unfashionable. That's how quickly your fashion assets become expenses.

Almost everyone is fashion-conscious, even those who "don't really care about fashion" have a fashion statement. Fashion trends differ from one another, and so making it hard for a specific one to stand out.

One thing that is a common problem of people is waking up and having trouble choosing what to wear. They would say that they have nothing to put on when in fact, their closet overflows with different types of clothing and accessories. But worry no more because with the use of your creativity, your old clothes may turn into a new one.

Have you ever thought about wearing something out of sustainable materials that last for longer than a season? It might seem like a new idea to you and you may worried about going out of style, but in reality, this can be beneficial both to you and your environment. Here are some things you can incorporate into your pursuit of timeless pieces:

  • Statement shirts: Every wardrobe needs statement tops that can be paired with either jeans, trousers, or skirts. These shirts are often oversized and have the ability to be dressed down or dress up!
  • Long to short: Some of your jeans might already wear out especially at the bottom part. What you can do is cut to turn it into shorts. From there, you can do some designs to make it fashionable again.
  • Scarf to bag: A big scarf can be folded in to shape and all you have to do is sew the sides. Make handles out of another scarf or you can use long beaded necklaces to use it as the bag strap. Add some cute patches and you have a new bag.
  • Accessorize with materials: From corduroy to linen, material can be a great way to express yourself seasonally! We all know linen is great for summer and a heavier corduroy is great from the chillier seasons, such as spring or fall.
