18 Slow Fashion YouTube Channels To Help You Dress Better
In the age of ever-changing fashion trends and overconsumption, slowing down your purchases for the sake of the environment can feel like a daunting task. Fortunately, there are more than enough YouTube channels out there to inspire us. We can learn from these people’s stories, but they’re also here to show us that slow fashion doesn’t have to be boring.
After all, the first step towards slow fashion is defining your personal style. Slow fashion is all about buying less quantity and more quantity. But you’ll need to know what are the pieces you’ll want to actually wear for a long time.
Whenever I’m searching for fashion or lifestyle inspiration I go on YouTube to get new ideas. Today I spent the afternoon looking for channels that focus on slow fashion to help me to shop less and to develop a more minimalistic approach to style.
I’ve found a handful of amazing YouTubers I thought you may enjoy watching as well. So if you don’t know these slow fashion channels yet, make sure to check them out ASAP! Spoiler: they aren’t only super insightful, they also have a great sense of style!

Use Less is the channel of Danish style coach, Signe. She wants to inspire women to shop less, choose more quality clothing, and have an overall more minimalistic approach to style.
“Style is not about having a lot of clothes.”
Signe has a cool and minimalistic Scandinavian aesthetic that I bet a lot of people admire just as much as I do. All her clothes go well with one another which makes her style so clean and effortless. And as a bonus, she never has to worry about getting dressed in the morning.
Check out Signe’s video about her perfect basic wardrobe. We all have different styles and live different lives so not everyone needs to have these exact same basics. But I always find it helpful to take a peek into other people’s wardrobe and see which items they wear regularly. There are pieces like basic T-shirts that go well with so many other stuff. If there’s something working well for other people that would be a great fit for my wardrobe, I want to know!
