Style over fashion: second-hand jeans and sustainable denim

Style over fashion: second-hand jeans and sustainable denim

Style is personal. It’s about finding what’s right for you and feeling authentic. For me, that means ease and simplicity, mixing old with new (thinking about what goes with what, continuing to experiment) and buying well-made clothes that last. I know we’re still in the first half of the month – and I don’t want to sound smug – but I also know that I can sail through Second-Hand September without buying anything at all. Style is definitely not about spending loads of money, or the price of an item, it’s about quality. Although expenditure is down to the individual, too.

The last two items I bought, earlier this summer, are these second-hand Levi’s 501s discovered in a small local shop for 20 quid. Thank you, very much. And my sale bargain sandals (half-price at Robert Clergerie/ a replacement for the falling-apart corkers/ more Style Stalking).
