Creating a sustainable wardrobe that works for you.

Getting to grips with ‘wardrobe economics’ is the key to sustainability. There are three variables to consider:

  • money
  • time
  • the planet

On average we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. That equates to an awful lot of clothes languishing in your wardrobe not ‘earning their keep’! For every £100 spent, £80 is wasted, if not being worn.

We take about 17 minutes a day deliberating what to wear. With a wardrobe that is full of ‘lurkers’ and not ‘workers’ the job of choosing an outfit is often not a joyous one for many people.

Working with a Personal Stylist can be considered a luxury, or something reserved only for people who are really into fashion, but that is simply not the case. I am trained by House of Colour’s rigorous and ongoing programme to help people like you to sort through the noise and get a wardrobe that fills you with joy and works hard for you every day.

By knowing what colours and styles work for your body architecture and lifestyle you can create a wardrobe that has garments that will all be worn and no longer waste money buying items that will not see the light of day. By doing this, you will be reducing the mass consumption that the fashion industry encourages and become more sustainable.
