Here’s my guide to being more sustainable by shopping your own wardrobe rather than buying new. Shopping your wardrobe rather than buying new is one of the most sustainable ways you can shop, it saves you money and it also diverts waste from landfill by closing the loop and prolonging the lifespan of items already in existence.
Here are my tips to dress down an outfit with a simple t-shirt and sneakers to create more looks to wear and love.
Here I’m wearing a Camilla & Marc Bustier dress which on it’s own can usually only be worn out or to an event as it is quiet dressy, however take this simple white tee and sneakers and now it’s transformed into an outfit I can wear during the day.
1. Take a dressy piece of clothing like a dress you would wear out to an event or a cocktail party and try it on with a simple tee and sneakers. You can then wear the outfit during the day for a more relaxed and casual look.
2. It’s a great opportunity to wear those dressy outfits/dresses you may have lying in your wardrobe that may be too dressy to wear during the day so grab a tee and pop on some sneakers and you’re good to go for the day.
3. Choose a tee that is in a classic or neutral colour like white, black or nvy for instance and then a pop of colour dress or outfit over the top creates maximum impact.
