We love hearing from others also on the path to a more sustainable lifestyle and there are some great blogs out there. From our base in rural Derbyshire, they help us feel part of a wider, interconnected community and provide no end of inspiration.
From styling ideas to brands, capsule wardrobes, ethical textiles, manufacturing processes and much more, our 5 favourite ethical fashion blogs cover everything we need to know…
This Australian based blog site is full of universally relevant posts. The section on fashion is full of down to earth posts about building a sustainable wardrobe, upcycling and brands (many are also available in the UK). There are a range of other lifestyle topics covered too (growing your own, recycling, health and beauty, green home) and founder, Jennifer Nini, also shares stories and videos about her journey to ethical living.
This is a firm favourite of ours here at AIRR. Wendy posts well researched, practical posts on a multitude of topics – food, art, fashion, even cleaning! We particularly love the charts she uses in this article on “How to Shop Consciously for Fashion” and the comprehensive list of UK ethical brands in the post “35 Ethical Clothing Brands For Women” .
We love following Edinburgh based Jen’s journey to a more streamlined wardrobe. Her posts on building a capsule wardrobe of around 37 items per season are inspiring – the pictures of her minimalist rails make us feel particularly keen to make more changes! Jen also covers practical beauty and lifestyle issues.
The authors of this stylish blog have everything covered – there is information on reasons for buying sustainable, ethical beauty tips as well as how to buy into the slow fashion revolution. After following their practical, informative blog posts for only a short time you feel able to make meaningful changes and dress your whole family ethically for all activities – be it swimming, yoga, running, work or evenings out and about. If you are thinking about joining the ethical fashion revolution then sign up for the 20 Day Fashion Challenge. Free daily e-mails and access to advice and tips help with the switch to slow fashion.
We love all things Berlin here at AIRR and Sabrina Bianca’s ‘What Pixies Wear’ makes us feel like we can experience a little bit of Berlin from our home in Derbyshire. Sabrina oozes style and her posts are backed up with great pictures of outfits. Like many of us she is on a journey to develop sustainability and her posts focus on how sustainable doesn’t mean compromising on style. We love how she mixes brands with second hand items and even borrowed ones from her boyfriend!
