When Emma Watson discusses fashion, words like "sustainable" and "eco-friendly" come up a lot. And, while this probably won't surprise anyone who knows anything about her, she doesn't just talk the talk.
Watson recently opened up her closet for Coveteur, telling the publication that she has been paring down her wardrobe as she moves towards only buying and wearing sustainable items. The result? An enviably low-key collection.
"[Becoming conscious about dressing] has been incredibly liberating in a funny way," she explained. "It's narrowed my options so much, I'm so much more creative. I actually really think it's helped me dress better because I have less, but they're things that are perfect."
The fact that Watson's wardrobe looks so perfectly Instagrammable isn't really a coincidence. The actress revealed that she has turned to the social media platform more and more because it's a great place to discover sustainable brands. Remember that next time you have to defend your app addiction.
"I think so much more about what I buy, and I buy less because I edit so carefully," she said. "I'm tending to shop online a lot more; I use Instagram [to shop] a lot more than I used to, because I find lots of brands through it. I would often find I was going into stores and feel like, 'Oh, I've only got an hour, I need to buy something, this isn't what I came in for but it's here, so I'll purchase it.' I never do that now."
Now that's shopping wisdom to live by.
