Goodbye Fast Fashion! Back to Slow Fashion!

If this pandemic has taught us one thing related to fashion, it is that we don’t need half of the clothes we have in our wardrobes. With many people working from home and spending more indoors, clothes are just left in the wardrobes unworn. I really can’t remember the last time I really played dress up. It would have been something during the first half of the year before everything changed. I still don’t know when I will have a good reason to play dress up. Maybe just for the cameras, but definitely not for an event. I believe we have witnessed the death of fast fashion, at least for the next few years. It is now back to slow fashion.

What is slow fashion?

Going back to slow fashion simply means buying fewer clothes and accessories. This has been happening gradually over the years for most of us, but it is currently happening even more due to the current economic issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The fashion industry has a major waste issue. Many people buy more clothes and accessories than they need. Most of the items bought are hardly worn and just stay buried in wardrobes. Going back to slow fashion will put an end to this fashion waste. People will only buy what they need and make the most of what they do buy. There will be way more capsule wardrobes and conscious shoppers. In the long run, this change in shopping will help the environment massively and people will become more creative with their outfits. You can wear pieces in many different ways; going back to slow fashion will encourage more people to play around with their outfits more and recreate different looks.

I am keen to see how this slow fashion new way of life will work. It is great to be able to wear our pieces as often as possible in different ways than to just keep buying and buying. I believe those fast fashion days are gone for a bit. What do you think?

Fashion Pieces I am loving this spring

This spring has been unusually warm. We have had little or no rain these last few weeks, and since we are usually indoors thanks to the lockdown, I am only comfortable in light airy clothes. I have been busy doing some online shopping. The kiddies needed a few fashion items for home, so I took the golden opportunity to get some spring items for myself. I have literally been living in short, skirts, light spring trousers  and dresses. Anything else leaves me way too warm.

Here are some of the fashion pieces I am loving this spring –

Dress code basics for men: a career in law

For most of us, learning how to dress ourselves started around preschool age, where we would become infatuated with the idea of wearing a certain garment or pair of shoes all day every day. Next, we’d learn to tie our own shoelaces. There was no stopping us after that. Henceforth, we were dedicated followers of fashion, albeit a certain type of misguided self-chosen style of peculiar fashion, but choices were made nevertheless. School clothes were largely taken care of by school uniform requirements, and our adolescent ‘jeans and tee-shirt’ phase was basically down to a choice of colour. But what happens when we get into the world of work? There’s no training for this. Everyone is just expected to know what to wear. And what about if you have gone into a career in law, where presentability is not just expected but is demanded. What then? Today, we’re going to look at what men can wear for a career in law.

Why your dad’s old suit won’t do

OK. So, you’ve landed your first major position working at a law firm. Whether you’re the new face around the offices in a debt litigation company in London, or whether you’re carving your new career as a car accident lawyer from New Orleans, there’s a universal truth about your look that will go with you from role to role in the legal arena: you need to look sharp. If you’ve turned up in a borrowed suit that’s one size too big or small, you will be noticed for the wrong reasons. How you look says something about how seriously you want people to take you. If you look like a bag of rags has sprouted arms, legs, and an apologetic smile, you aren’t going to create the impression your employer needs you to create when meeting clients. This is a problem. Presentability can pave the way for trustworthiness, and that can mean the difference between clients seeing their business through with your firm or taking their money elsewhere.

What to wear?

For men, the law firm dress code is simple. A fitted suit in black, grey, or brown, with a simple white shirt (or light pastel coloured shirt), a block colour necktie that hangs to the belt buckle, and polished shoes in black or brown that look new. You can also get away with a minimalist V-neck jumper or sweater in colder weather. Keeping tattoos covered and jewellery to the maximum of the rule of three (watch, ring, and one earring if desired) can also bring about a clean-cut appearance.
