Hey guys, You know that every month I bring you an eco tip to incorporate into your swish lifestyle. This month's tip is about. . . FASHION!
I know that as swish girls we love to look good, but we also love the environment. So here is my little guide on how to do both. Remember people, life is not "or" it is "and." So let's be fashionable and environmentally conscious, because when it comes down to it, aren't they one of the same?
The key here is minimalism. Try to own and buy the least you can. Use what you have and then OWN IT!
1) Go vintage: This is the re-use part of a green philosophy.
Why not? Raid your local shop or even your mother's or grandmother's closet to come up with a uniquely funky outfit to represent your swishy style. Remember you can always get things tailored into a modern silhouette.
2) Sharing is Fashion Caring!
Do you have sisters? Friends? I know I am so lucky to have a sister who is around the same size so we share a combined wardrobe, which means that we have more of a diverse selection but less cloths collectively. Also look up local clothing swaps. On the island I live on in Thailand now we have a monthly clothing swap where we all bring clothing that we do not want anymore to a cafe and trade away!
3) Green is the New Black
If you are going to buy new cloths, try to make sustainable choices. Meaning either buy from an eco company or a local company. Many clothing brands are now offering eco options. If you need any advice on cute eco brands just check out the suggestions from the girls at ECO CHICK which is a blog dedicated to sustainable fashion. They always have the cutest suggestions. Or you could just wear your eco swish suit everywhere!
4) Live simply. Live fresh.
The last option is to do what swish does now. Spend everyday in a bikini and live it up!
