There are many good things that come from aging. Among them are having fun with styling and being less tempted by trends. While I am aware of the pressures of fashion, I am also aware Americans discard around 80 pounds of clothing each year with 85 percent going to landfills.
Many of us recognize the importance of re-using what we own. Thinking twice if you really need an item and how often you're actually going to wear it would be my advice prior to making any purchase.
It is beginning to get chilly around here so I've been investing in some pieces of outerwear and trying to be mindful with my consumption. Instead of going the traditional route of black, beige, gray, or white coats, I recently purchased this powder blue Cashmere fabrication by an American fashion house, Calvin Klein, which was established a few years after I was born.
Though Calvin Klein is often recognized for designer jeans and its underwear collection, I find I am most fascinated by its selections of coats
This one has a Single-breasted silhouette and it looks way more expensive than it was. I like the straight hemline with a back vent and it has an easy three-button closure and side welt pockets. On this day, I teamed it with my leopard print scarf, black leggings, and boots. I purchased the coat large enough I can add multiple layers underneath.
If you are looking to help reduce carbon footprinting you may wish to consider buying pre-loved items and donating your items to a boutique or thrift shop.
