Buy Less, Buy Better, Wear More

Buy Less, Buy Better, Wear More

Here are a few pointers to show how your clothing lifestyle can be adapted to enable you to save more money, increase your outfit options and help reduce your personal contribution to the huge climate change effects the fashion industry has on our planet.

At the heart of the “buy less, buy better, wear more” ethos is the capsule wardrobe philosophy – for those of you who aren’t familiar with this term, I’ll explain. A capsule wardrobe is built on a core of clothes, using neutral colours, that form the basis of your clothes collection. These items will be tops, skirts, dresses, trousers and jeans. Added to which will be accessories such as shoes, scarves, handbags, jewellery, jackets and coats.

By selecting these core neutral clothes and accessories the items can be mixed and matched to provide many different oufits that work together whilst minimising your outlay, allowing you to “buy less”.

And by carefully planning your core capsule and the accessories to go with it, you will be able to “buy better” and avoid wasted purchases. Afterall, clothes that just sit in your wardrobe taking up space and telling you you have nothing to wear is so demoralising.

Of course, buying better leads you to “wear more” of the clothes you have, and a greater satisfaction with the clothes you do have, because they will be working harder for you and represent much better value, as the cost per wear drastically reduces. And you’ll be helping save the planet. Win, win, win!
