5 Sustainable Pieces To Update Your Spring Wardrobe.
Spring is just around the corner and the urge to update yours wardrobe is strong. Being swamped with passing trends that will be out of fashion in a few months can be overwhelming, and it's not a great practice when it comes to wardrobe sustainability. Instead, why not invest in a few statement pieces that are well made, long lasting and can be worn through ALL the seasons.
We've pulled together our 5 favourite investment pieces that will brighten up your spring wardrobe. Rather than buying into passing trends, these clothing staples can be mixed and matched all year long - helping the planet and your purse.
We think that this denim boiler suit should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe - it's cute, comfy and can be dressed up or dressed down. Lucy and Yak are known for their adorable dungarees and these are no exception - pair them with your favourite sandals and a cardi in the springtime, before layering up with long sleeves and jumpers as the cold makes it's return.
Looking to add some pastels to your wardrobe, but want something that will last? Pangaia's super cute lilac hoodie is made from 100% organic cotton, making it extra soft for your skin and much better for the planet. Once you've ditched your winter coat, this is the perfect layer before the sun comes out full time (we hope).
A versatile dress is a springtime essential, and this People Tree number is the perfect fit. People Tree is a Fairtrade brand that puts the environment at the top of their priority list - there's no fast fashion involved here. This dress is pretty and super flattering; you can dress it up with heels and a blazer on an evening, or pop it on with your fave trainers for some springtime strolling.
We're obsessed with this quirky tee from cult slow fashion brand, Salt. Complete with a style icon and it's punchy 'no waste' quote, this t shirt makes the statemenr for you this Spring. It's made from sustainable materials and it's 100% plastic free, plus its vegan friendly and made in the UK. This will look really cute with your favourite denim skirt once the sun makes an appearance.
No wardrobe is complete with a funky tote bag, and we love this one from slow fashion brand, Before July. Their stock is made to order, meaning there is no excess waste as orders are produced by demand. This is the perfect bag to if you're not *too* big on colour - it just pops the right amount of brightness into your 'fit.
