How To Behave Sustainably When Revamping Your Closet

How To Behave Sustainably When Revamping Your Closet

Fashion is one of the most rapidly developing industries in the world. Every six months, the world’s biggest brands present us with new styles and fashion trends. Then all the rest of the world’s brands tries to imitate these trends in their collections thus creating tons and tons of clothes produced on a daily basis. Many of us want to look stylish and thus end up buying many clothing items on a monthly basis. However, there is also a more sustainable approach to this which is second-hand shopping.


Europeans seem to have mastered this skill of shopping at second-hand stores and look incredibly stylish. An ability to combine vintage pieces of clothing with the most recent brand items cannot but astonish. However, it is something we all can achieve in our shopping behaviors. By knowing a few tips and tricks, it is possible to completely revamp one’s wardrobe by buying used clothing and look up-to-date in terms of fashion trends. If you want to learn more, stay tuned!


How To Efficiently Shop Second Hand

When thinking about second-hand clothes, think of the guys or girls you dated who already had some relationship experience. They are just as good as the others but still have some pros and cons. When choosing used pieces of clothing, you may find something new and in a good state as well as very outworn and anti-stylish pieces. In real life, you also have a chance to check what the person is like by using various websites with the snap pics of your potential date. And these may vary just as clothes do.


So, now let us get back to our topic of sustainable shopping and look at the ways how all of us can embrace it in our daily lives. There many strategies on how to lead a zero-waste life in terms of the wardrobe. We will give you only the best hints on how to shop sustainably. So, let us jump straight into it:

  • Get prepared: when going on a hunt for some vintage items, be ready to try many things on. For this, you will definitely need a comfortable look and the right attitude. Girls can wear a dress that easily pulls on and off. Guys may want to have a simple T-shirt and trousers on. And get ready to pull your sleeves up as this is a painstaking work;
  • Be ready to leave empty-handed: sometimes, it just does not feel right. It is okay not to find any piece even after one hour of looking. Sometimes, things do not work out. Given our aspiration to be sustainable, it is important that you abstain from the desire to buy at least something as a reward for all the time spent there. Be ready to leave when you cannot find anything what you really really love;
  • Be perfectly aware of your closet needs: it is a common practice to have many items of clothing and have nothing to wear. This happens due to the fact that we do not know how to combine things. Therefore, when going on a second-hand hunt, you should know what exactly you lack and try to shop for this very item;
  • Know where to shop: given a wide variety of online and offline shopping options, it is good to know exactly where to look for which things. Sometimes, online stores are better for accessories and bags, while offline ones are full of cool, old-school jeans and outstanding T-shirts.


Obviously, knowing these tips is only half a way to your success. If you really want to go zero-waste, you should be ready to put some effort into it. It is much easier to go to one of the stores on the main street in your city and purchase that look from the show-window. This is, however, something we want to avoid doing. Instead, we are trying to learn the routine for more reasonable and fair consumption which is likely to save this world from over-production and tons of garbage.


Therefore, it is essential that you take your time for second-hand shopping. Go all over the stores a few times and feel no shame in trying many things on. Remember, you are on the mission to bring more sustainability in your life and thus make an impact on the future of our planet and our kids. This is something to be proud of and not ashamed of definitely.


All in all, remember that shopping is like your dating life. Some people are a good fit and can stay for a bit longer while others are just a piece of outworn rubbish. Your role is to sort the right ones from the wrong ones with the help of the online websites for your relationship or with second-hand stores for your wardrobe.
