4 Sustainable Style Swaps For Summer

A new season often brings a new wardrobe. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make it sustainable! Here are a few tips from La Sororité on how to refresh your style whilst breaking that fast fashion cycle.

 

1. Jeans -> Swap for linen!

One of Summer’s favourite fabrics, linen is the perfect, breathable alternative to your favourite denim during the hotter months - not to mention, a lot more sustainable. Effortlessly stylish and timeless, when looked after properly linen can last a lifetime! Top tip: look for a pair coloured with natural dyes if you can. Pair with our Madeline Jumper for the summer evening outfit. 

 

2. Several fast fashion dresses -> One forever dress!

Although it can be tempting to splash out on high street dresses (that usually only really last one season anyway), by investing in a dress you can dress up and down throughout the seasons is so much better for your wardrobe, bank balance and the planet. Our beautiful dresses are handmade in Italy with dead-stock couture fabric, meaning they’re just as sustainable as they are stylish.

 

3. New jacket -> Swap with your bestie!

Getting tired of your current summer jacket? Why not swap with a friend! It’ll be fun to see how they style your piece and you get to mix up your style with a piece of their wardrobe. Fun, sustainable and you can still borrow your jacket whenever you want - a dreamy situation indeed.

 

4. New sunglasses -> Go vintage!

Sunglasses trends change every year, but classic cat eyes and retro ovals are always in fashion. Rather than picking up a cheaper pair (which usually don’t have any UV protection) why not try and find your perfect vintage sunnies? Totally unique and a fun talking point! There are some great spots on Portobello Road if you need a head start.
