Transitioning to your spring/summer wardrobe? What a great time to also transition to brands that care! With shops now open in the UK, we understand it can be tempting to impulse buy…
However, as the unsustainable practices in the fast fashion industry become more apparent, join us in making more conscious choices for our wardrobe so that we not only look good, but also… feel good.
At Save Your Wardrobe, our mission is to guide our community to buy less and buy better. Our partnership with brand rating and transparency platform, Good On You will help you do just this!
We have curated a list of 5 brands that do better to help you on your journey to more mindful consumption. The best part is, you can now shop all these brands straight from the SYW app under ‘Responsible Shopping’.
Armedangels offers a selection of garments from flowy dresses to sweats all while focusing on creating timeless designs that you will want to keep forever. They prove that creating sophisticated garments does not require any animal fur or skin. Shop here.
It is almost summer! Even if this year that means sunbathing in the garden, Under Protection will have you looking great.
Underprotection is the loungewear, swimwear and lingerie brand worth discovering. Their garments are made with eco-friendly materials that do not originate from animals ; making sustainability more than just a trend.
I think we can all agree that loungewear was the best part of 2020… and 2021! Some may say beauty before comfort, but why not have both?? Be comfy, conscious and cool with Unrecorded.
From knitwear, to denim, to trousers you will definitely find the missing piece to your wardrobe on the Unrecorded catalogue. Unrecorded creates durable essentials using eco-friendly materials all while tracking their manufacturing activity to reduce their environmental impact.
Did you know that one pair of jeans requires 20,000 litres of water and mass amounts of nitrous oxide-releasing pesticides to produce?
MUD Jeans have impressively saved 533 million litres of water in the last 4 years. Their circular values translate into one of the lowest environmental footprints for denim, with their jeans being made from 40% recycled materials to combine style and sustainability. They have one of the most transparent supply chains with their website detailing all the processes and countries involved. Moreover, they are winning at inclusivity! They offer a wide range of jeans in multiple sizes to fit all bodies. Shop here.
LANIUS is a multi category brand that uses eco-friendly materials to create pieces that are stylish, sophisticated and durable. Dressing well shouldn’t come at the expense of the environment and that’s exactly what is advocated by this brand which uses eco-friendly materials and non-toxic dyes to reduce its impact on the planet. We are loving some of their organic cotton prints that are perfect for the warmer weather!
