STEP 4: BUILD IT UP
Your wallet will be proud.
After cleaning out your closet, you know exactly what you have. Monitoring what you’re actually wearing is just as important because let’s face it, we want to learn from our mistakes, don’t we.
This step helps you to get to know your style! It also helps you saving money, because you will not end up buying all those bad bargains you’ll never wear anyways. Let’s call this a win win situation!
The basis of this step is to think about how much you actually need.
Just take a look below and start building from here!
Think why before you buy !
GET TO KNOW YOUR STYLE
It is important to know what you’re actually wearing, because we don’t want to have our money just hanging in our closet. We would love to wear it, don’t we. Therefor it would be good to repeat step 2 a few times a year. Monitor what you’re not wearing and please get it out of your closet asap. After you’ve don this, please don’t go online and buy the same mistake over and over again.
If you find it hard to figure out what your style is or what you miss in your closet, than I would advice you to have a look at the book “The Curated Closet”. There are more books on style, but I kinda like this one with its feminine touch.
Building a sustainable wardrobe, doesn’t mean that you have to do it all at once. Step by step is perfectly fine. So if you want to take it slow, than start with the basics. Tanktops, longsleeves, socks and underwear; these timeless pieces are made to last and therefor a perfect way to start your thoughtful fashion purchases.
There are some fine brands that sell sustainable basics. You could have a look at my favourite brands on the Sustainable Brandlist Page.
But be carefull. That you’re allowed to start building this fair wardrobe doesn’t mean you need to! Always think Why before you buy. Do you actually need it?
