So, when a bigger company is trying to be sustainable we want to share it with the world! What better way to add to your Autumn wardrobe than recycling your unwanted garments and saving a few dolla' bills at the same time! Keep scrolling to get the deets!
How to save money and Mother Earth
H&M isn't exactly the poster child for slow fashion but they're making major efforts to reduce their waste and minimize their carbon footprint.
Here’s how H&M is helping Mother Earth. They’re offering their customers a 15% discount when they bring in a bag of unwanted clothing or textiles.
Instead of sending your old clothes to landfills the unwanted garments go through a sorting process and are categorized as re-wear, reuse, or recycle. The items donated that are able to be re-worn are given to second hand stores to be brought back to life in someone else’s wardrobe. The items that aren't suitable to be re-worn are turned into other products such as cleaning cloths. Last but not least the recycled garments are turned into textile fibers that can be used for products such as insulation. We can’t get over how amazing and innovative this is!

Now that you know how it’s done keep scrolling to peep eight perfect transitional items for your Autumn wardrobe!
The fact that this belt is only $9.99 has us saying “Are you outta’ your mind?!” We love that it some what resembles that Gucci belt that we not so secretly want in our closets!
Corduroy Ankle Pants
Autumn is the perfect time to start adding some texture to your wardrobe! We know what you may be thinking...corduroy takes you back to your childhood when your mom used to dress you. We think corduroy has made its comeback and these ankle pants are proof!
Check Printed Jersey Blazer
A blazer is the perfect addition to start working on those Autumn layers. Checks are totally in and we’re lovin’ it! We love adding a little flare and texture to an office fit that could feel a little boring. The nine to fivers need something to cling to in order to make it through the day!
Color Blocked Knit Sweater
Just because the sun disappears faster and Summer has ended that doesn’t mean your closet needs to be as dark as the sky when the clock strikes 5 pm. Keep your outfit vibrant with a color blocked sweater!
Ruffle Midi Wrap Dress
We predict we’ll be missing the sun half way through Autumn so this dress is the perfect substitution for the lack of sunshine we’ll be getting. We love the ruffle details and the length of the dress is perfection. Did we mention the empire waist works for any body type?! It’s time to accentuate that natural waist line y’all!
Faux Leather Pencil Skirt
Faux leather is another way to add dimension to your OOTD! We love that the fabric adds a little something special to this otherwise traditional skirt. It can be paired with a sweater or even a blazer for a business causal vibe!
Titanic Graphic Tee
Our hearts will go on for this tee! There is never a bad season for a graphic tee. Dress it down with a bomber or toss on a blazer for a more professional look. By more professional we mean we’re too old for this graphic tee but we’re teenagers at heart so we use blazers to seem more adult like.
We hope you guys are inspired to recycle those unwanted items and rock a few of these items as Autumn rolls in. Find us on Insta @OHBIofficial and let us know which items y’all choose!
