Let’s face it, splashing out on the latest fashions has been a bit of a boost for many of us during the coronavirus pandemic.
Hearing the doorbell ring and running to collect our freshly ordered parcels like a child on Christmas Day is one of the few joys we can shine from the ongoing lockdown.
While a little retail therapy has helped us through some of the toughest times of the past 12 months, we also need to think about how to make the clothes we were in a little more durable.
So move on bad girl, who launched their vintage range so that we can shop in an environmentally friendly way.
The online retailer has curated a stellar selection of some of its vintage treasures along with a range of organic denim pieces for us to be stylish and sustainable – especially as we start to venture outdoors amid restrictions lockdown are starting to ease.
The vintage Nasty Gal range is described on its website as having been “reimagined, reinterpreted and redone” so that each garment is both totally chic and unique.
The organic denim jeans are all produced through natural processes that support the well-being of the ecosystem, while the vintage tops and dresses are all sustainably sourced and repurposed from materials from bygone eras.
The brand explains, “These v rad vintage clothes are made to be treasured; they take pride of place in your wardrobe with each passing season.
“Plus, everything comes from sustainable fabrics, which means you can help save the environment while looking great.”
So whenever someone asks where you got your new trendy jacket from, you can say, “That old thing? It’s vintage.”
We can’t wait to venture into our upcycled clothes…
Cheaper second-hand clothes have become increasingly popular over the past year. Shopping app Depop, which sees users selling their second-hand clothes to new shoppers, has seen a huge surge in users in 2020.
Having just under a million regular users in March last year, its popularity soared as people emptied their wardrobes during lockdown – seeing 2.5million active users in July of this year.
It’s good to see we’re all doing our part to buy sustainably.
