Tips To Help Make Your Clothing Last

Clothing can cost a lot of money over time, and as each season comes and goes, your bank balance will only suffer more when it comes to fast fashion. However, there’s a way of getting timeless pieces that can last longer than just a few months. Here are some tips to help make your clothing last.


Buy More Quality Pieces
Spending money on clothes is something we all need to do at various points in our life. For some, it could be once a year, and for others, it might be as often as every few weeks. However, it’s important that no matter how frequently you are buying clothes, you’re buying quality pieces. Quality pieces don’t have to mean that they are more expensive, but it does require you to buy clothing that’s durable and made out of good material. Always look at every item of clothing, regardless of what store you’re in. Test the fabric by giving it a quick feel and think about whether you’ll be able to wear this with a number of pieces already in your wardrobe.




Wash Your Clothes Less
Over time, washing your clothes in a washing machine is going to wear them out. Particularly if they are not hugely durable or you’ve got them on a vigorous wash cycle. To save your clothing, you may want to think about washing your clothes less. Not every item of clothing needs to be worn once and then washed. Some pieces like jeans, for example, can probably be worn a fair few times before needing to be put in the washing machine. Just be more conscious of how often you’re doing it and where you can, lower the spin cycle rate to a more gentle setting. 




Think Timeless
Timeless pieces are those that will never go out of style, no matter how many seasons go by. Think crisp white shirts and denim jeans, leather boots, and A-line coats. Even though men’s linen clothing is on-trend, it’s also worth it to have a range of clothing that doesn’t need to be part of a trend and can be worn with other on-trend pieces. There will always be items of clothing that are timeless to wear, so get these into your wardrobe!




Use Protectors On Leather
Leather is one material that can become worn after it’s endured certain weather conditions. To help stop this from happening and preventing the demise of your leather jacket or shoes, ensure you’ve got some sort of protector on it, whether that’s in the form of a spray or wax. Just like you would with your car, it’s important to protect that base layer as much as you can. And with leather being fairly expensive, it’s worth getting something that will help it to last that little bit longer.

The more sustainable we can all be when it comes to clothing, the better. Every item that ends up getting thrown away is only going to waste and if anything does tear or rip, then try to fix it or give it a bit of an upgrade with your own DIY skills.
