4 Ways to Shop Like a Progressive Millennial

Those darn millennials, worrying about ethics and climate change.

Millennials are a passionate group of individuals who are trying to change the world for the better. Many are taking steps to change the way business is done in America, especially with clothing companies. Instead of not caring where their purchases come from, as long as it looks expensive and shiny, millennials are truly making a difference where it hurts the most — with their dollars. This is how you can shop like a progressive millennial.

Organic and True

Millennials care about where their clothes are sourced, which is driving the eco-conscious style. You want to make sure your clothes are made by people who were paid fairly and only used organic materials that are sustainable. There are only a number of companies selling these kinds of clothes, so choosing a look should not be too hard.

Old but Reusable

Those who do not want to perpetuate the production of more clothes should just go to thrift stores or garage sales. The idea is to simply use clothes that have already been made and avoid buying new clothes. You get to save money and get to help the world by taking a part of the movement to stop the overproduction of clothes. The world has enough clothes out there, so why not reduce and reuse.

Unique but Cool

Millennials want to be as helpful to the environment as possible, but they also want their clothes to say something about who they are, which makes uniqueness important. There are a number of ways to be unique, but one of the most effective ways is wearing interesting T-shirts from companies like DHDWear and similar businesses. People look at a shirt more than any other piece of clothing you are wear, so it is important to pay close attention to the kinds of shirt you wear while still keeping the number of shirts you own small.

Experimental Youth

Some of you want to stick to the more adventurous trends out there, and you can. Those who want to wear natural clothes but do not want to wear materials like wool or leather, may want to consider scoby-based clothing. Scoby is the scum that is produced when fermenting kombucha or wine. It is waterproof, and the texture must be felt to be believed. You can consider yourself quite progressive if you decide to go down this road.

These are just some of the many fashion tips that progressive millennials should consider. Of course, fashion is going to continue to move forward, so be sure to keep your ear to the ground. As always, do not be afraid to try something new because you never know what is going to work for you.
