Sustainable Wardrobe Essentials

By Sophie Parsons

Focus on slow fashion and longevity when building your capsule wardrobe by investing in the best sustainable staple items. 


Curating your wardrobe in a way that each and every item complements one another is the perfect antidote to the mid-week, pre-work ‘I don’t know what to wear’ conundrum. These wardrobe staples are fundamental in creating a capsule collection of clothing in which longevity and quality are key: tailored trousers which won’t lose their structure, a classic white t-shirt that won’t fade in just a few washes, for instance. Slow fashion goes beyond that of being aware of how often we make new purchases to encompass a more holistic approach to our wardrobes that considers processes, resources, people and the planet.

Establishing your wardrobe essentials - be it finding a pair of jeans with just the right fit or a classic trench that can thrown over almost anything - is the first step in establishing your everyday hero pieces. Focusing on natural materials, recycled where possible, and ensuring transparency within supply chains and sourcing can all ensure that your wardrobe is built to last.
