Because looking good doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

We’re really starting to get excited about Spring. The sun has been out, we no longer have to bury our extremities in woolly things to stop them falling off and there are daffodils springing up everywhere. And with a new season comes brand new style ideas!

We loved Jessica R’s cute little black dress with crochet detailing and we thought we’d share it with you. It’s the perfect seasonal transition dress – wear it with tights when it’s chilly or bare legged as things start to heat up. We’ve even found some eco alternatives so you can get her look without breaking the bank too…

Little Black Dress

This Komodo Zoe Fair Trade Cut Out Dress (above left) is a lovely girly addition to your wardrobe, which would look great bare-legged or paired with sheer tights. The crochet detailing on the shoulders and hem add a bit of pizazz to a plain black dress. It’s even made form sustainable fabric rayon so you’re doing planet Earth a favour too.

Or pick the perfect day to night dress – this Gringo Embroidered Bali Cut Out Dress (above centre). This gorgeously detailed embroidered dress has a very flattering shape and can be worn to work and then dressed up with heels and jewellery when you leave the office. Gringo are traders in fair trade fashion only working with fair trade groups from India, to Africa and South America, ensuring they all earn a good wage for their products.

Smarten up in this ReLuxe Upcycled One-Shouldered Party Dress (above right) – the ultimate party dress, guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd. What’s more, it’s made from end of roll sustainable fabric in the UK too! Now get out there and show the world what you’re made of…

And here are some accessorising ideas for your LBD look…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /

Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
