Compassionate Fashion: 5 Ways To Curb Your Fast Fashion Addiction

Compassionate Fashion: 5 Ways To Curb Your Fast Fashion Addiction

It’s been about 6 months since I vowed to overhaul my shopping habits and become a more conscious consumer.  One of my main goals was to cut back on fast fashion, AKA super cheap, trendy clothes from stores like Forever 21, Zara, H&M, and Topshop that refresh their inventory almost daily and rely heavily on sweat shop labor. Honestly, I didn’t realize how addicted I was to fast fashion until I tried to break my habit. It’s been a bumpy road (and I still haven’t phased it out completely), but the rewards are worth it: my closet is less crowded, my clothes are better quality, and I feel better about where my money’s going. If you’ve been thinking of cutting down on your fast fashion consumption (woohoo! you go girl!), here are 5 tips I learned the hard way:

I love a fun statement piece that can be worn year round.  This Alexander McQueen romper could be paired with tights and a jacket or rocked solo, and is the kind of onesie I could picture being worn by preppy Taylor Swift or daring Lily Allen. Unfortunately, Alexander McQueen’s romper is more than my monthly NYC rent! Try Motel’s version available at British retailer Bank Fashion. Much easier on the wallet and just as fly!

Shop The Trend: Varsity Blues

Even if I had been, like, into sports in high school, I would have been screwed, seeing as I attended a performing arts school, where I could fulfill my physical education requirement with an assortment of dance classes. No, the whole high school jock culture thing is really foreign to me, and therefore kind of intriguing. I wouldn’t go back to high school for a million dollars, but I would spend a little dough to rock varsity style, which is super popular for spring. The key is not to wear more than one or two sporty pieces at a time, unless you want to look like an extra from a teen high school drama on ABC Family. Here are 12 pieces I’m currently jonesing for…

I love how pretty patterned pumps can brighten up an entire outfit. The unexpected burst of color screams “Spring is here!” Though many of the prettiest patterns come with the highest price tags, you can achieve the same effect for a sixth of the price. Try these Guess pumps for $90 at Macy’s.

Shop The Trend: Everything Is Coming Up Daisies!

What was I saying just yesterday? Oh yeah. The ’90s are back, especially when it comes to grunge-era fashion and beauty trends. Let’s see, there are overalls, deep, vaguely goth wine-stained lipscrop tops and, of course, the floral that basically defined the ’90s, DAISY-PRINT. Celebrate the first day of spring — finally! — with one of these fun, whimsical daisy-print items.

Must Haves: 10 Stylish Pairs Of Peep-Toe, Ankle-Strap Mules

I’ll be perfectly honest, I’m not sure what the difference is between a shootie and a mule, if there even is one. (I’m also not sure how anyone keeps a straight face while saying the word “shootie,” because I just chuckled to myself typing it. What a ridiculous hybrid fashion term.) All I know is that this style of shoe, which covers most of the foot, save the toes popping through in the front and the exposed heel in the back, is huge for spring.

Now, mules, more often than not, are backless, offer zero ankle support and are responsible for some of the worst falls I’ve ever taken. That’s why all these mules have some sort of ankle strap or slingback — I care about you, dammit. Click through for 10 pairs to stay upright in…

Must Haves: Wear The Luck Of The Irish This St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, which means we should all start mentally preparing ourselves to see herds of adults in tacky drinking T-shirts and shot glass necklaces. Newsflash: dressing like an ass is not a requirement for celebrating St. Paddy’s Day. There are tons of ways to add some festive fun to your attire without going overboard or looking like a leprechaun threw up on you. Check out some non-tacky, green must haves to make your March 17th outfit pop. Cheers!

Must Haves: 10 High-Slit Maxi Skirts For Showing A Lot Of Leg

This spring, fashion is all about the daring cuts. If you’d rather flash a little leg than a little midriff, consider the high slit trend. Maxi skirts and dresses with high slits are coming in an array of fabrics and patterns, for occasions both casual and formal. To avoid pulling a Paris Hilton and flashing your mons pubis, go for slits that are off to the side and not so high that they’re cuttin’ it close. Here are 10 high-slit maxi skirts that will flash a lot of leg…
