Deck the halls, ethical fashionistas, the festive season is here. That means Christmas parties, family gatherings, holidays and New Year’s Eve. It also marks the beginning of the biggest shopping month of the year – did you know that last year the UK spent £50billion in the lead up to Christmas?
Christmas consumerism is nothing new – it’s the sad truth that while Christmas should be about spending time with loved ones, it’s become one of the most materialistic holidays of the year. Brands target us with a different sale every week, and the pressures to spend money (and lots of it) are everywhere.
If you feel like your wardrobe needs a festive injection but you want to approach the holiday season with a more sustainable attitude, we’ve found some amazing ethical outfits that you can wear well into the new year (and beyond). Because a dress is for keeps, not just for Christmas!
