The entire nature of the fashion world is that looks and styles are consistently updating and evolving into something new. It is key that you understand this when you begin to follow the fashion world because it will not only help you to stay sane but it will help you to save money in your endeavors. Sometimes, clothing styles are fads that will be recycled in just a few months or even weeks. That being said, there is an environmental impact with the fashion industry. As we create more and more material we are stripping the Earth of all of... Continue reading

One of the biggest things about saving money on clothing is not having to buy any more of it. A huge problem that I see with people is that they are frequently in need of buying new clothing in order to support their shopping and living habits. While being rough with clothing is inevitable, there are some ways to make them last longer. Paying special care to how you wash and dry each item can make things go a long way compared to what they normally would. This benefit ensures that you keep things in your wardrobe for a long...

One of the best things about fashion is that it can be reused, recycled, and repurposed. There are tons of pieces in my wardrobe that I have used for outfits or styles that I didn’t think I would when I first bought it. Everyone likes to borrow something from a friend and try to dress it up and make it look great. One of the things that I think is the best about finding something new is going to the thrift store. These are some of the best places to find inexpensive fashion and to make something great out of... Continue reading

Nearly every time I check out a store, they ask me whether or not I have a rewards card with them. More often than not, I do. For some reason, people always think that it is strange that I get the cards from so many of the places that I shop at. However, for me it just makes sense. People do not realize how great these cards can be if you are trying to save money. If you are a frequent shopper, these cards will pay off in a very short time. One of the things that I get back...

Environmentally safe fashion is a relatively new frontier for the fashion industry. Many of the world’s top designers are listening to their fans and working out ways to have their products become more environmentally friendly. As the public moves towards this more and more, so do the corporate companies and fashion designers. There are many ways to do this. The first and most obvious one is to eliminate fabrics and materials that are detrimental to the health of the planet. Using all natural or mostly natural fibers makes a big difference. There are plenty of statistics that can change the... Continue reading

A great way for companies to change their manufacturing process is to use organic plant-based materials. This eliminates the need to use harmful pesticides when growing these crops, as well as an easier harvesting time. Organic cotton is all the rage these days, as it is simple to grow and harvest; anyone can do it. Chemicals are not used when growing organic cotton, and as such, the crop can turn out much smaller or larger depending on the area. Natural methods of ridding the crop of pests can be used in lieu of chemical based pesticides. As well as this,... Continue reading

For the company looking to advance their products in a more environmentally friendly direction, it is important to have transparency about the manufacturing process. Most companies would balk at revealing the way they make their products, which only adds to the disdainful secrecy the public has come to know in regards to this business. Using sustainable, reusable, and recycled materials for clothing is a hallmark of the best fashion designers. Plant-based fibers are often used the most, especially since many customers have an aversion to wool. This is because there are many farming practices in place that harm the health...

Unfortunately for many designers, the case against environmentally friendly clothing means that they will have to spend more to manufacture their product, thus driving up the prices of the product itself. A personal rebuttal to this would be the cost saved in the long run, particularly for already established designers with a loyal fan base. Plus, designers are already preaching the ethical values of sustainable clothing, like famous bag designer Stella McCartney. Hollywood celebrities that practice this fashion include Cameron Diaz and Salma Hayek, making the switch for designers something they should think about. If the most famous actors and...

Organic agricultural standards are something any company can look into. It is a great way to ensure that the manufacturing process is as safe for the planet as it can be. These standards were first implemented in the 1940s, and today they are the hallmark of an efficient, environmentally gracious company. These standards declare that usage of non-natural pest removal or deterrent is against the code. For some, any kind of removal or deterrent system can be a cause for disqualification. When growing cotton, agricultural standards of the normal variety are also put into place. Companies that follow the standard... Continue reading
