Trust Me—I Know These 28 New-In Buys Won't Date Quickly

If you are trying to make your lifestyle (and your wardrobe) more sustainable, then you need to shop for more than just one season. "Without a doubt, a change in mindset is what is needed," say Ella Grace Denton and Jemma Finch, the pair behind the clothes-swap initiative Stories Behind Things. "We focus on fashion as something we can love and will also last—something that's timeless and not thrown away after just one wear."

If you don't think you'll love neon slip dresses, belt bags and cycling shorts for years, there are plenty of pieces in the new-in sections that will have a long shelf life. But that doesn't mean they have to be boring either. The below 28 pieces have plenty of personality and are so much more than just beige jumpers and straight-leg jeans.
