I know it’s been difficult since the rise of social media to think we can’t re-wear items and take pictures and then have then be seen on our feeds months or even weeks later!
Fast fashion retailers like Zara and H&M have contributed to this as well since the turnover on styles is weekly, in most cases, daily. It’s hard to keep up with trends and we feel we might be out of ‘fashion’ just two weeks after purchasing an item.
I say we take back our closets and be the curators of our kickass style once again! Sure I’m a sucker for a good trend, always have been, but what’s this that we all think we have to buy something new every time we have an event because we already posted that dress on social media already? Let’s rebel, grab your hand-me-downs, your vintage, new and not-so-new pieces, mix them up and get creative. You have plenty to wear, the trick is giving your old items a new chance at life. You may surprise yourself and create a trend of your own.
