The Changing of the Seasons
I don't know about you but I am so ready for Autumn. As I shared in Tuesday's post I went on holiday last week which was the perfect end to the summer so now I'm ready to wrap up warm with cosy jumpers, slip my feet back into my trusty boots and have lots of soup!
A changing of season, especially at September, feels like a mini new year. You go through your wardrobe giving a refresh, if you’re back at school you’re purchasing all the stationary you think you’ll need and probably loose within the first week and generally giving your life a bit of a reset. I am feeling this for sure this September, I have an itch to reset and really overhaul my wardrobe for the upcoming season. But how do I go about this sustainably without creating any new fashion waste?
Below I created a moodboard of outfits that have been really grabbing my attention and making me hit the like button. In the past my love of masculine style and androgynous fashion comes out in full force through Autumn and Winter with blazers, straight leg jeans, chunky knitwear and boots. Don’t get me wrong, I still love this look but I am feeling a bit repetitive and bored of my wardrobe and here on Sustainable Style I always strive to have a sustainable wardrobe that isn’t boring and the typical ethical style. I do think fashion is a form of expression for our personality and when that develops so does our wardrobe. Clearly from the images below, I’m really influenced by the streetwear style - hoodies, leggings, bodycon and comfy trainers. Merging the two styles in my wardrobe, I think, will actually be a lot of fun and I think a few new pieces(bought secondhand) will be the perfect way to jazz my wardrobe up a bit. I already have my eye on a couple pieces on depop, so this weekend will be my time to have a look through what I have and what I want to add in. As always I will bring you on my journey and show you what my Autumn/Winter wardrobe will look like in a few weeks time!
Are you guys switching up your wardrobe this season and how do you plan to do it sustainably? Let me know in the comments below.
