HOW TO BUY IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY DURING SALES, FROM THE HIGH STREET.


We are often made to feel guilty for buying high street clothes, I get it, it's what is out there, handy and modern, fresh and it gets us. However, we can all do it in a more sustainable way. Not talking here about buying just classics. Here you have a few ways you can actually be sustainable AND shop high street guilt free ( in case you had any at all).


Nos hacen sentir bastante culpables por comprar en tiendas de cadena. Sin embargo, está ahí a mano, es fácil, moderno y nos pilla los gustos. Pero si quieres de jar tirar ropa cada temporada, aquí van seis sencillas maneras de comprar de forma más sostenible y sin sentirte culpable.


1- Forget the That will do it

That's the first rule, just ban this all together from your shopping vocabulary.

I have seen this so many times ( in myself and others) that just because it is cheap, we take it home without a purpose. Make each piece in your wardrobe have a purpose.


1- Olvídate del concepto: Va! total, por este precio...

Esta es la primera regla, prohibe esta frase de tu vocabulario de "shopping". Lo he visto tantas veces en mi misma y en otros, que sólo porque algo es barato, ya lo usaremos, para lo que sea, por el precio, una prenda sin propósito. Haz que cada pieza en tu armario tenga un propósito.


2- Look at fabrics

Linen at this time of the year is super comfy, fresh, natural and it looks expensive.

On the contrary.... hello polyester!


2- Mira los tejidos

El lino ahora en verano, es super fresquito, natural, y es un tejido que te da un look que parece más caro de lo que puede en realidad ser.

Por el contrario...hola poliester...


3- Avoid patterns your future self is going to get tired of wearing.

Yes, even though you may like flowers, wearing that dress over and over again because it is in your style, may be fine, but be sure it is, because otherwise, you will not enough wear of that dress.


3- Evita los estampados que aburrirán a al futura TU.

Si, incluso si adoras las flores grandes, llevar ese vestido una y otra vez, porque es de tu estilo, esta bien, pero asegúrate, ya que sino, no lo llevarás muchas veces.


4- Look for basics with a twist

I always say this as I am not really a minimalist myself or classic style. I love it in someone else, and not me, it washes me out.

So go for basics, with a different cut, a different shape, they will be modern and give a fresh uplift to your wardrobe.


4- Busca básicos con un "giro"

Siempre digo esto, y no es porque yo sea minimalista o me gusten los estilos clásicos, que me encantan en otra gente.

Ve por básicos que de alguna manera tienen otra forma, un detalle diferente. Le darán frescor a tu armario y no dejas de tener básicos.


5- Find your style- Definitely!

We tend to buy things just because they are cheap. ( been there done that) and never wore it really because we though it was our style, yet got home and something is odd.


5- Encuentra tu estilo. Definitivamente.

Tendemos a comprar cosas por el precio, y luego realmente nunca llevarlo porque no era nuestro estilo.


6-Shape, shape, shape

Some of the fits from high street are not the best fit. Just because is cheap and you absolutely love it,

if the fit is not right, forget the colour, forget the pattern, is not right! and no right now, but in the long haul, you will regret to have bought that piece.


6- Formas, formas, formas.

A veces como sientan las cosas de las tiendas en cadena no son las mejores.

Sólo porque es barato, olvídate de que te encanta el color, o el estampado o lo que sea, si no te sienta perfecto, no merece la pena.
