Building a wardrobe with pieces from sustainable fashion brands not only helps our planet, it also makes your life a whole lot easier. Hear me out: when you purchase pieces from brands who believe in "slow fashion", you curate timeless looks without having to worry about things going in and out of style.
Slow fashion is simply the opposite of fast fashion (well, duh) Fast fashion is all about cycling through hot trends as fast as possible, dumping them, and moving on to the next fleeting look. Slow fashion is all about producing pieces that have a timeless look about them, that have been in style for years, and will continue to be in style for years to come.
