We know that fashion trends move really fast. Being in the latest fashions is hard. You need to keep purchasing clothes for every new season.
Sometimes you just use one cloth once and then it is out of trend. With this, you may have two problems. The first one is that you are contributing to climate change by shopping in fast fashion. The other one: You don’t get the chance to use again a garment that you loved.
So, we will give you some useful tips to be in trend without playing the fast fashion game.
Tips for keeping clothes in trend:
- First of all, choose durability
We know that some materials last longer. When purchasing clothes, always check the material the clothes are made from. Choose good quality cotton and avoid spandex, viscose, or any synthetic fibre.
Clothes can last for years and years. You simply need to choose durability and you will not have to worry about purchasing new clothes in a while.
- Basic, basics, and more basics
After making sure that you’re choosing good quality materials, ensure that you have all the basics that you can. Commonly, what changes in season trends are the colours of the clothes. Make sure that you have the basics in a good range of colours.
Guarantee that you will be prepared for any seasonal colour change. Make sure to have tank tops, crop tops, button-up shirts, etc. Choose them in solid colours. That way you can mix them with other clothes freely.
- Choose outerwear in neutral colours
We all know that outerwear is needed for when the cold weather hits. You don’t need to keep purchasing new coats and sweaters every year. As we were saying before choosing one of them of good quality; maybe the price will be higher, but it will last longer.
Here is a quick guide of colours consider neutral that you can pick:
- Pale pink
- Navy blue
Now, let’s talk about the fun part:
Maybe everything that we put on top of this article seems boring to you. How would you be able to show who you are with this? Well, there’s a super simple and easy way to do it. And the key to success is the accessories.
- Accessories are a girl’s best friend
Necklaces, earrings, and purses are some accessories that you can change depending on your mood and on the trends. Accessories are way cheaper than purchasing tons of new clothes.
As well, trends tend to come and go. For sure, you will re-use every accessory that you buy.
- Be creative with socks and stockings
Maybe you don’t consider these items as the main part of an outfit. But let me tell you that they are also important. This is an easy way to let know other people who you are. Maybe you can use the same skirt over and over again. But if every time you use different stockings, then you will get a different look.
There are stocks with tons of patterns and lovely colours. Also, with stockings, there are some fantasy colours and really lovely patterns. And don’t forget about mesh stockings.

How to go greener with all the fashion topics?
As we were saying before, fast fashion pollutes a lot on the planet. Tons and tons of water are wasted when doing clothes. Also, as trends move so quickly, people get rid of clothing in a perfect state. To avoid this, we will talk about some easy things that you can do to improve your clothes and make them go with the trend.
- Dye your clothes
Maybe you have a t-shirt that you love everything about except the colour. This is normal; sometimes something that used to go with you doesn’t do it anymore. Your tastes are changing every time so don’t get frustrated.
Dying your clothes can get them back to life. Also, you can pick one of your favourite colours. That way you can make sure that you want to use always that item.
- Sign up for a sewing course
The easiest way to make changes to your wardrobe is when you know how to sew. If something doesn’t fit you, then you can do the arrangements. As well you can change something in an old piece. And make it look like a totally new piece of clothes.
The sky will be the limit. With this skill, you will have new clothing at any time. If you are planning to go somewhere soon, as a music festival or so, then prepare for it.
Take your time to check the vibe that you want to give and go for it. Try to do your outfit with time. That way you can come out with some great festival outfit ideas.
There’s a lot of things that you can do to keep yourself in the trend without purchasing clothes. Consider doing trades with your friends. That will be fun and also you will give a second life to an item. And it could be really exciting.
Tell them to get all the clothes that they don’t like anymore. But they need to be in a good state. Gather together in your house or someone else’s, then prepare for trying clothes and model them.
