Hybrid Work and Back-to-Work Wardrobe Challenges

Many employers called their employees back to the office. As a result, people had to master the back-to-work dressing challenge. Nevertheless, because hybrid working became a thing, we remained thinking about what to wear and not to wear when live streaming. Furthermore, many of us had to develop ways to stay sane when working hybrid.


The It Fashion Trend of 2022

Many people have gotten second thoughts on tossing their old clothes. Recycling, upcycling, consigning and thrifting are on the raise.

An ongoing trend that will remain in 2023, is the demand for more sustainable fashion, and clothing resources. Therefore, fibers from sustainable resources became a customer favorite. While resources like bamboo, wood, or breech are sustainable, processing viscose bamboo, Tencel, or Modal fibers from the cellulose pulp of the raw materials requires chemical processes. Read more about these so-called regenerated fibers.

Another sustainable resource for fiber is hemp. Because the plant has not high demands on the soil it is easy to grow even without fertilizers. More on what you need to know about hemp textiles.

The question How environmentally friendly is fashion? becomes more urgent.

Good news are that the textile industry now recycles some of their waste.

The request for more sustainable production made Scandinavian Minimalism Style more popular. Read what makes minimalism style more sustainable than other personal styles.



How People’s Dressing Behavior Changed in 2022

It seems that there are two new dressing mainstreams now:

While in the first 20 years of living in Alaska, I only dressed up a notch when going to the symphony, or a ballet/dance performance, I now wear evening gowns or cocktail dresses, respectively. Sometimes I even wear my feather skirt as everyday wear.
