O2 Monde new Boots collection

It is wintering out there and with the cold temps and white fluffy snow comes the shift in the fashion choices we make. It can be tricky, so the question becomes: Where to begin when navigating for a sustainable, ethical and compassionate fashion choice this winter? How to begin changing your buying habits and not get sucked into fashion trends that someone somewhere is paying the price in blood, sweat, and tears as well as the exploitation of animals for their skin, feathers, and fur.

Let’s begin with what you have already, only buy what you need, take some of our advice for inspiration. Remember being a compassionate fashionista doesn’t mean you have to give up on the gorgeous  things in life that will keep you toasty warm this winter!
