There are often points in our lives where our wardrobes don’t suit us anymore, whether because of a lifestyle or life stage change, size change, or just evolution of our personal style. But for sustainable style enthusiasts aware of fashion’s waste crisis, this can present a dilemma.
In this interview, I talk with Sophie Strauss (@sophiestraussstyling) — a sustainably-minded stylist “for regular people” about how to do a responsible closet audit.
Before we get to that, Sophie and I also talked about all things personal style. Because personal style is interconnected with a slow fashion journey — but it can be confusing to know how we should even go about finding our personal style.
- What even is personal style in the first place?
- Do you need to have a go-to uniform?
- Can we still participate in trends if we’re dressing for our personal style?
- And what happens when we want to experiment with our style?
We’re talking about all of this and more in the interview below!
