five questions to ask while shopping

These are my 5 golden questions I recommend you ask yourself before choosing to buy something new. We may not all be able to afford fairtrade and sustainable fashion, and thats ok, but we can think twice before buying another pair of shoes or a shirt… Think about quality over quantity, solid timeless basics and how often you can mix and match your new purchase, in order to create a wardrobe that lasts. We need to choose more wisely, so we prevent waisting and supporting fast fashion. You can be stylish with very few pieces.

  1. Do I own something similar in my wardrobe?
  2. Does this piece fit with at least half of my wadrobe? 
  3. How many outfits can I create?
  4. When and for what occasion will I wear it?
  5. Can I see myself wearing it for the next decade?
