Overdressed "The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion"


Cheap fashion has fundamentally changed the way most Americans dress. Stores ranging from discounters like Target to traditional chains like JCPenny now offer the newest trends at unprecedentedly low prices. And we have little reason to keep wearing and repairing the clothes we already own when styles change so fast and it´s cheaper to just buy more.

Overdressed (Elizabeth L. Cline)
In "Overdressed-The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion-" the author set out to uncover the true nature of the global fashion juggernaut, tracing the rise of fast fashion retailers and discounters, and the roots of our obsession with deals and steals. She travels to factories in China, follows the fashion industry as it chases even lower costs into Bangladesh, and looks at the impact (both here and abroad) of America’s drastic increase in imports. She even explores how cheap fashion harms the charity thrift shops and textile recyclers where our masses of cloth­ing castoffs end up. All in an attempt to answer: What are we doing with all these clothes we’re buying–68 items a year? And more important, what are they doing to us, our society, our environment, and our economic well-being.

Elizabeth L. Cline shows how consumers can break the buy-and-toss cycle by supporting innovative and stylish sustainable designers and retailers, returning to custom clothing, refashioning clothes throughout their lifetime, and mending and even making clothes themselves.

Overdressed will inspire you to vote with your money and find a path back to being well dressed and feeling good about what you wear.
