Quick Guide For Capsule Wardrobe For Women
Out of the many practices of sustainability that we should adopt, sustainable fashion remains one of the foremost. It is known to everyone that fashion trends evolve every season- what is relevant this summer may not be on the runway next summer. And this leads to a lot of reckless buying in order to be ‘in trend.’ This impulsive and reckless buying definitely burns a hole in our pocket and contributes to the rising consumerism. Clearly, excessive consumerism isn’t healthy for our planet and its resources.
Sustainable fashion is, therefore, the need of the hour. A capsule wardrobe is one way to adopt this practice. Essentially a capsule wardrobe means having some basic staples in your closet that never really go out of style and can be worn in several ways. Coined by Susie Faux, this is something which is definitely economical, but also sustainable. This blog is your quick guide- the staples you need to have to build the perfect capsule wardrobe for women.
