Trust us, you’ll be coming for the fun prints and pastel colours, insanely good outfit ideas and eclectic finds by independent designers — and staying for the simple tips on how to start your circular journey step by step. Speaking of which, we asked Nicole for her expert advice on shopping more thoughtfully. “Besides asking myself if I really need a new piece of clothing,” she explained. “I try to style it in at least five ways in my head, and I think of five imaginary wearing moments.” Genius. We also asked her about some of her favourite things to wear, and she showed us six super unique pieces (we’re talking ‘tiger print stockings’ unique) by small, sustainably focused brands, that all just so happen to be made from recycled materials.

Hey Nicole! We’d love to know: What’s important for you when discovering new brands to support?

How brands deal with sustainability is really important to me — how, where, by who and of what are garments made? Is the price fair? I understand that bigger brands have a longer way to go, I always ask them about sustainability goals or promises. With smaller, more boutique brands it’s easier to find out more about consciousness and I always start a conversation about that. It’s important to me to keep on educating myself on this subject, I believe small steps into the right direction are the way to go. Little by little, this should become our new normal. Here are some of my favourite pieces from small, sustainably focused labels that I love:

Thanks so much! Now, what’s the one thing to change today to make better, more thoughtful fashion choices?

I believe the easiest thing to do is to buy less and if you buy, buy more pre-owned or vintage. Before I buy something I ask myself: Do I really need it, or is this just a quick fix for my greed? My apartment is quite small, so my ‘physical boundaries’ keep me in line to not own too much. As a stylist, it’s sometimes hard, since fashion in my profession and my big passion in life. So besides asking myself if I really need a new piece of clothing, I try to combine it in at least 5 ways in my head and I think of 5 imaginary wearing moments. For more tips, check out my videos at @itsapark on Insta for some fun ways to make better choices in your daily life!
