Uni | PLT Recycled – Trend

April 22nd also known as Earth Day, saw the release of PrettyLittleThing’s first recycled collection, I was really interested to find out more about this collection and what the brand meant by recycled. As I spoke about in a previous blog post, sustainability seems to be a growing trend and so I feel like it’s really important to do your research and to ask questions to find out how genuine and transparent these brands are being.

From my research I discovered that the purpose behind the collection is to rework unwanted pieces and worn out materials, in order to give them a second chance by turning them into new pieces that are staple wardrobe pieces that could get worn over and over again. The brand has also collaborated with reGAIN, a recycling app, so that customers trade in unwanted clothing for discounts off PLT purchases. This collaboration is to help prevent pile up of clothing in landfills throughout the UK and to encourage a positive impact on our planet.

The collection itself features over 150 wardrobe essentials ranging from joggers to cycling shorts and crop tops to jumpers, and varies in colours including blush, violet, nude, tan and black. I would describe the collection as quite classic/basic, which isn’t in a negative way as it means the pieces are easy to style and can easily be worn over but in different ways. I also like the colour options, as in previous recycled collections you tend to only see shades of green, brown and nude which have become very predictable and in some cases boring. It’s definitely a new fun approach, and will definitely give consumers the opportunity the get creative with their styling.

I think it’s safe to say this a genuine attempt to make a difference and isn’t just another brand jumping on the bandwagon, despite the collaboration with reGAIN being done before by other fast fashion brands such as Misguided and Boohoo. CEO Umar Kamani stated “This is another step in the right direction towards sustainable fashion. We know this isn’t the answer to everything, and our aim is to continue to learn new ways and adapt new methods in which the business as a whole can become more sustainable and responsible in terms of protecting the planet for the future”.

Fashion | #WednesdayWeeklyWishlist

Happy Halloween everyone,

I hope you guys are enjoying all the pumpkin carving and dressing up. I was so excited for today’s #Wednesdayweeklywishlist because it’s finally come to that time of year where you can really wrap up warm and layer up. I had so much fun looking online for all the big coats and scarfs I wanted, as well as all my little winter date night outfits. There was so much I loved and put onto my wishlist that I’ve split it into two, so theres 8 pieces for this week and 8 pieces for next week.

 

I have to say Oh Polly and Zara are really coming through with the big winter coats, and I am loving every minute of it. This year a majority of my A/W wardrobe is from Zara, I just feel like they are 2 steps ahead of all the other high street brands. No one is bringing affordable quality clothes and trendy timeless pieces like they are.

I cannot wait to show you guys the rest of my wishlist next Wednesday, have a lovely rest of your week.

Love Always

Fashion | #WednesdayWeeklyWishlist – Bag Edition

It’s Wednesday guys, which means it’s #Wednesdayweeklywishlist. This week’s wishlist is a special bag edition, I’ve noticed lately I buy so many outfits and I never buy any bags to go with them, and I’m not sure why. So this week I dedicated my time to bag shopping instead of shopping for more coats that I don’t need and don’t have the space for.

Strangely I found bag shopping a lot harder than shopping for anything else, and I didn’t enjoy it as much either (maybe that’s because all the bags I like are well over my budget atm). However I managed to create this wishlist in the end of the ones I did find and love.

So that’s all the bags I found that I loved, which completes this weeks wishlist. I can’t wait to go back to shopping outfits and shoes for next week’s wishlist, and really show you guys what I’m loving for this years autumn looks. there is just so much out there to choose from at the minute and I love it.

Ladies if there’s any bags out there that you are loving please leave a┬ácomment below.

Love Always

Next week’s wishlist will focus more on casual pieces and lounge wear, as you guys requested on my Instagram poll. But for now, which is your favourite piece from this week’s wishlist? Comment below
