OUR TIPS

■ Be wise about size: With no Aus­tralian na­tional siz­ing stan­dard for cloth­ing, each brand is free to sell siz­ings that may dif­fer when com­pared to another store. Don’t worry if your “per­fect fit” varies. Get fa­mil­iar with the size that best suits you from your favourite la­bels and shop with con­fi­dence

■ Qual­ity over quan­tity: En­sure your cloth­ing lasts by in­vest­ing in well-made gar­ments. This does not nec­es­sar­ily mean they will be more ex­pen­sive, but take the time to in­spect the care la­bel be­fore buy­ing. Nat­u­ral fi­bres (silk, cot­ton, wool) are gen­er­ally more durable than syn­thet­ics

■ Re­cy­cle and re­use: Go green by vis­it­ing char­ity stores and sec­ond­hand cloth­ing re­tail­ers. Not only will you re­duce your en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact, you will save money. Visit re­cy­clingn­earyou.com.au
