So what does this mean for our planet? Well, what happens to all these garments once they're old news? Do they sit at the back of our wardrobe inevitably disposed of during a "spring clean"? Or maybe we send them off to a charity shop?
I've always thought that a woman's natural hair is her crowning glory. It tends to have a whole shaft of luminous and subtle tones that shift around her face and flatter her complexion in perfect synchrony. No salon 'highlight' jobby can mimic the way natural hair carries the light.
These unlikely revolutionaries (yogis are just flexible and chilled right?!) are making yoga tops out of recycled plastic and leggings out of coffee grounds. They work with artisan villages in Bali and create gift bags out of almond shells. They plant seeds in their hangtags and create trade show displays out of recycled piping.
The elusive British sun is starting to show, temperatures are creeping up, festival season is round the corner, and summer trends are hitting the shop floors. It's tempting as hell to ditch our winter wardrobes and start afresh with some cute new clothes.
What is vanity sizing? In short, it's a marketing tool. Clothing companies wanted to compliment shoppers by reducing the sizes to make women feel they're a size or two smaller than they really were.
One of the good things about being seventy is that younger women can judge whether my advice has any bearing by looking at my skin. I admit to taking good care of it and going for regular beauty treatments (since at my age I need all the help I can get!).
The work of The Possibility Project is never to tell people how to live their lives or what clothes they should be buying, it's simply to demonstrate that there are many versions of doing things. At the heart of what we do is an intrinsic trust in the power of our creative spirit to make great choices for self, and when we do, our greatness will naturally flow into other people's lives.
For the uninitiated, Pussy Hats are pink, woolly hats with pointy ears that proliferated during the recent Women's Marches. Catalysed by Trump's victory, the hats signify a strong statement about gender equality. Yet coming from a child who is (presumably) more interested in football and Pokémon than fashion and Pucci, my attention was pricked.
I think we need to re-evaluate what it is to grow older and place value on it. My personal wish is that the beauty industry would market products using a 'positive-ageing' message, highlighting the natural and ageing beauty that is in our faces.
The choice of a black man to replace Alexandra Shulman shouldn't be the main topic of discussion. Yes, this is a positive step for a publication that has traditionally been steered by white, middle class women, but I don't think we should be blinded by Enninful's race or gender - ultimately he is a huge talent with incredible experience.
I saved up my money and went to the nearest Boots. But having never seen boys wearing makeup out, I felt so embarrassed just walking into the store. The shop was in my local area, so I knew I would bump into people I knew and that panicked me! I ended up picking products in random shades, quickly paid for them and left the store in a hurry.
You're busy, life is full to the brim and you don't have hours to dedicate to weekly decluttering and alphabetising your wardrobe by brand, I get it.
Advance warning: this is a blog post about washing clothes... Sounds terribly dull, I know, but here's the thing, your activewear kit is becoming increasingly specialist with lots of clever technology used to create fabrics which can wick away sweat, retain their shape, stay pingy, stretchy and supportive.
If you are a well-versed advocator of hair extensions, you will be familiar with Slavic hair when referring to extension pieces of the highest quality. Known for its fine texture, lighter colours and superb durability, genuine Slavic hair is the diamond standard of hair quality.
Personally being in a relationship has calmed my personal style. I am very aware of not wearing anything that could be considered as 'fashionably risky' when going out with my husband. Fashion isn't high on my husband's list of priorities and he doesn't particularly understand why people would want to draw attention to themselves through their appearance. I'm conscious of this as I dress to spend time with him.
Doesn't it make sense to invest at least, in some timeless pieces? Pieces that we know we can adapt to suit our occasion; pieces that will sit proudly in our wardrobes for years to come. And when I say 'invest' I'm not talking about spending ridiculous amounts. I just mean good-quality, fairly-made clothes. The characteristic to quality clothing is in the material and the construction, not the logo.
Young women have an acute understanding of what the power of youth means, particularly when it comes to sexuality. Youth is something that is so sought after - we long to be able to capture our physical youth through beauty products and surgery.
This fashion marks a shift away from objectification towards feminine functionality. You know a category has earned its place in our wardrobe when it pushes boundaries. Just as loungewear saw the onesie reach mainstream, so too do we have athleisure brands embracing the jumpsuit.
It's hard not to feel discouraged when you're faced with disparity. You can make a difference by supporting fashion brands that are empowering women throughout their supply chain.
