Increasing Closet Mileage for the Eco Friendly Fashionista!

Dec 9, 2014

Choosing to live in eco friendly way enters into many decisions of  each day. Just like cars with good mileage have a lot of appeal to our hearts and wallets…so do closets that get good mileage…especially if you are an eco friendly fashionista.


One easy way to increase clothing’s wearability is layering. It’s an obvious one…but, easy to do and rather fun as well. Right now…half of the world is going into winter…the other half will be soon enough. So when it gets chilly, many a short sleeved top, dress, jacket or blouse can be layered with a henley under and/or a cardigan over!



I find myself wearing this combination almost all winter long. A henley shirt is nothing more than a nice long sleeved thermal layering top. Think, Grandpa’s long underwear. I love the ones with lace on the sleeve and neckline…just another sweet feminine detail.


And cardigans are plentiful in thrift shops. I love the solid blues and greens as they go so well with almost any color or pattern layered under.

Let me know if you have any other tips for stretching our closet’s mileage! I’d love to hear from you!
