Awoman from Boston has made headlines for wearing the same dress for 100 days in a row. Sarah Robbins-Cole did so because it “didn’t take anything away” from her life. However, she styled the dress differently every time she wore it. Sometimes, with a skirt. The other times, with pants.
WHY DID SARAH WEAR THE SAME DRESS FOR 100 DAYS?
Sarah joined the 100 Day Dress Challenge on September 16, 2020, to live without fast fashion and help save the planet, The Mirror reports. She has been wearing the dress to work, on walks, and at several other events without batting an eyelid.
“Instead, it’s inspired me to go one step further and not to buy any new clothes or accessories between January 1, 2021, and January 1, 2022. I realised that, at my age, I have clothes for every occasion and if I need a ballgown, I’ll dust one off that’s been in my wardrobe since 1992! I am thinking of clearing my wardrobe and having a big declutter, but I’ll wait and see what I do wear over this coming year first,” Sarah told The Mirror.
WHICH DRESS DID SARAH WEAR?
The outfit that Sarah has been wearing since the past 100 days is the Rowena dress, which is made from sustainably sourced merino wool.
WHO INITIATED THE CHALLENGE?
The 100 Day Dress Challenge was initiated by clothing brand Wool&. Those who participate in the challenge are required to wear the dress if they are awake. However, they can wash and dry the dress overnight. Those who complete the challenge will win a USD 100 voucher to spend on a new Wool& dress.
WHY DID SARAH OPT FOR THE CHALLENGE?
The challenge was introduced to establish that wearing just one outfit every single day will not only reduce costs but also the laundry load. This, in fact, will also help to save the planet.
“I first saw the challenge on social media and thought why not? So, I really was a lady of the cloth,” Sarah added.
On Instagram, Sarah also posted pictures of herself in the dress.
