Fashion changes with the seasons. If you want to follow these fashion trends, which are dictated by the fashion world, then it is not very difficult to understand why we quickly accumulate a lot of clothes in our wardrobes over the years. Unfortunately, this trend is neither good for the environment nor for your own wallet.

If you are interested in creating a more sustainable everyday life, then perhaps you should consider getting a minimalist wardrobe. Basically, minimalism is about streamlining your wardrobe so that it consists of only quality items. So it's about turning up the creativity - and down for one's shopping.

Here you will find 5 tips for a sustainable and minimalist wardrobe.

Invest in accessories

If you don't already have some, invest in some accessories. Scarves, belts and jewelry in particular can help you spice up your outfits so you can wear the same shirt or dress over and over again without anyone noticing. Accessories are generally much cheaper than investing in new clothes all the time. So if your wardrobe feels old and uninspiring, you should consider investing in some different accessories.

Shop timeless designs

Try to buy clothes in timeless designs and colors. Some seasonal and print trends have a very short lifespan. If you choose classic items, you can use them much longer instead. Neutral colors make mixing and matching much easier. The more neutral colors you have, the more likely it is that you can creatively put together a new outfit without having to take a trip to the mall.

Keep your wardrobe tidy

Clean up before you buy new. Keep only the clothes you need. Many of us have an extensive wardrobe, but often choose to use the same items of clothing over and over again. If you are one of these people, pick the clothes you don't wear anymore anyway and sell them! Most cities have thrift stores that are happy to accept used clothes, or you can try selling them online.

Quality over quantity

As we talk more about sustainability, we also focus more on the consequences of overconsumption. Here, the clothing industry is unfortunately one of the major climate culprits. Therefore, you should invest in quality rather than quantity. Buy more quality clothes if you can. When you spend less money on buying clothes, you can automatically also afford to buy more expensive clothes. At the same time, you will not become part of the throw-away culture. The clothes will also stay nicer for longer and save you money.

Avoid impulse purchases

Don't go to the mall. Impulse shopping is a bigger problem for many consumers, and if you're one of those people who go to the mall all the time, it won't help you with your new minimalist lifestyle, no matter how much you've already cut back.

Repair your old clothes

Patch holes in your clothes and sew in a new button if it has fallen off. In this way, you save both money and natural resources by repairing your own clothes
