How To Spend Less Money on Clothes and Avoid Waste

How to spend less money on clothes and avoid waste. Learn to look after your clothes by understanding the washing care instructions with this handy infographic.

// Avoid throwaway and fast fashion trends. Choose pieces you can mix up with more fashion led accessories instead to achieve the latest looks  – or even better, develop your own signature style that won’t need to change as the wind blows

// Always, always check if an item is dry clean only before you buy it. This is the one thing that I constantly forget to do and I have a whole section of my wardrobe that is ‘things I’ve worn once before I can’t be bothered to get them dry cleaned’. When you’re shopping on a budget, this is definitely something that could sway you not to buy.

// Brush up on your washing symbols. The folks at Data Label asked me to share the survey that they carried out with you guys – can you believe they found out that 56% of people were confused about the care instructions on their clothes? Well, yep – I have ruined a gorgeous silk top by sticking it in the washing machine instead of paying attention to the label! You can see the full survey results over at Laundry and Cleaning News. Thankfully, Data Label have created this amazing infographic to make taking care of your purchases easier so you can spend less money on clothes and avoid waste. I had no idea those drying symbols even existed!

How To Spend Less Money on Clothes and Avoid Waste

// Use Pinterest to come up with multiple outfit ideas to create a capsule wardrobe from a few key pieces. Instead of feeling like you need to buy something new, shop from your own wardrobe and style up a new outfit using items you would never normally wear together.

// Spend more on quality essentials like a great fitting pair of jeans that washes well and basic tops that you can wear again and again without the quality failing. It might seem like a no brainer to buy the cheaper version of something, but it’s a false economy. Having to replace these pieces less will save you money as well as looking after the environment and avoiding waste.

What tips and advice do you rely on how to spend less money on clothes and avoid waste?
