Sustainable Style by Bronte Hogarth
Here are some of our favourite sustainable fashion ideas and tips!
We adore this idea of revamping a jumper with some great detail like these felt elbow patches. It’s easy and perfect coming into winter to give some new life to an old clothing item. See how at HonestlyWTF.
If you have had something in the cupboard that you barely wear, give it a makeover by re-dyeing it to transform it into something you will get use out of. Dyeing is simple and you can get some fantastic results like this tie-dyed denim shirt. Full tutorial at HonestlyWTF.
There are great labels popping up all around who are remaking and up-cycling old clothes into new fashion items. Cream are one of our favourite labels doing this, however it’s something easy you can do yourself. For example resizing an old mens button down shirt into a more fitted and feminine one. Great how-to for the below remade shirt at Grainline Studio.
- DID YOU KNOW: Australians collectively spend over $12 billion a year on more than a billion fashion items, but discarded clothing makes up 4-5% of waste going into our landfills! See more fashion facts here at our website.
This could be made a lot more sustainable by taking on practices such as up-cycling and revamping where you can in your own wardrobe to stop clothing from ending up in landfills. To help us all along on our sustainable style journeys we would love you to share any of your own great up-cycling ideas, tips and tricks with us?
