Because following the latest trends shouldn’t cost the Earth…

Kate Moss

In the world of fashion, no wardrobe is complete without the perfect little black dress! If you’re struggling to pick what to wear for New Year’s Eve why not keep it simple and classic with that old faithful LBD just like Kate Moss. And if you want to get a new one for the new you in 2013, read on…

Here are a couple of our fave LBDs from eco stores for guilt-free fashion indulgence. It’s really important that you wash your LBD at 30 degrees or less to avoid your dress fading and becoming a washed-out, fading grey (totally not hot right now!)…

Little Black Dress

This Komodo Zoe Fair Trade Cut Out Dress (above left) is a lovely summer to autumn item, which would look great bare-legged or paired with sheer tights. We love the billowing skirt too so if you ever end up standing on the top of a moving cab like Posh Spice, you’re sure to make an impact. 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!

And to celebrate one of our favourite models, here’s some rare vintage footage of the one and only Kate Moss back when it all began…

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

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /

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