Did you know that the average American spends nearly two thousand dollars a year on clothing? This is likely because our clothing consumption patterns in the northern hemisphere have adjusted to prioritize the sale and purchase of low-quality fast fashion pieces.
Fast fashion is appealing, because it teaches consumers that they can buy trendy clothes for cheap as long as they make peace with the idea that it will only last a use or two. Clearly, however, this is bad both for the long-term health of the planet and for consumer wallets.
Capsule wardrobes are the panacea from wasteful overconsumption of cheap clothes. Capsule wardrobes encompass the practice of thoughtfully planning out your wardrobe in a way that prioritizes quality and durability. While better clothing construction is the central focus when choosing pieces to include in your capsule, a capsule wardrobe that is thoughtfully arranged also leaves plenty of room for trendy accents.
