For those of us in the southern hemisphere, spring has well and truly sprung. The flowers are finally showing their faces, the sun is sticking around for longer each day, and all those cosy knitted jumpers and fluffy socks are almost ready to hibernate until next autumn. I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite things about this time of year is the fabled Spring Clean. And what better place to start than our wardrobes?
Simplifying your wardrobe is said to make the dressing process less stressful, and we could all do with a little less stress in our lives. But after responsibly donating, upcycling, mending, altering, or reselling those items you no longer need, how ever will you fill the gaps? Well, we always recommend perusing the pre-loved marketplace first, but sometimes you need to turn to new. We put on our thinking caps and tracked down 21 versatile and sustainable spring staples for you. BIG bonus—they’re all under $50. Let’s get to it.
