7 Tips For Sustainable Fashion On A Budget
Yes fast fashion is cheap but in the long run it's definitely not the smartest cost saving strategy. Poor quality cheap clothing tends to only last a couple of wears/washes meaning you are constantly replacing things- therefor spending more!
Instead embrace what you already own! Understanding your style and what looks good on you is key to creating a sustainably filling wardrobe.

Ask your friends/relatives or check out clothing rental platforms such as HURR

Or any other relative! It's free and you might find some hidden gems. Remember to ask first!
6. Consider quality, versatility and durability
Invest in pieces that are well made and going to last
