Be Pretty in Print with These Eco Dresses

I like a dress that isn't afraid to stand out from the crowd and a bold print is a brilliant way to differentiate yourself from the everyday. Here are some dazzling designs that caught my eye!

Flamingo Print Dress by Ruby Rocks - I am a massive fan of quirky-chic! Other than their amazing range of prints, this label is awesome because of its strict fair work practices. Ruby Rocks prides itself on knowing everyone who makes their clothes and ensures they receive healthcare for them and their families
Traditional Chinese Dress with White Flower Print by Tradidoll - This svelte and stylish dress has been made from sustainable hemp fabric
Fleuret Camouflage Dress by Jackpot - This distinctive design reminds me of the bark of the beautiful Rainbow Eucalyptus tree, which is a favourite of mine! Jackpot works together with MADE-BY, an umbrella organisation of socially and ethically committed fashion labels
Bigere Dress by Skunkfunk USA - This 95% bamboo dress plays mischievously with notions of perspective and colour
Sleeveless Printed Shirt Dress by CALLA - Prints can be bold but they can also be subtle and sweet like this pretty pastel design. Made from 100% organic cotton satin, this Romanian made dress is a great cruelty-free option
J Dress by Global Mamas -For starters I'm in love with this shade of lemon-zesty yellow! The lovely macro design was hand-batiked by female artisans in Ghana under fair trade conditions with the aim of encouraging financial independence and empowerment
The Reversible Shift Dress by The IOU Project - Sure the mix 'n' match prints are super fun but you also get 2 dresses in one! WooHoo :D This completely one of a kind dress has been handwoven by artisans using organic cotton
Gio Dress by ecoSkin - I love to see a dress that can be both daring and classy at the same time! This little number is made from 100% woven cupro, which is a material created from recovered cotton waste
Vintage Colour Block Dress from We Could Forever - Oh my but I love me a rainbow-licious ensemble! This vibrant frock was handmade in the 70s and sports some flirty side splits and sweet lace detailing
Dot Sleeveless Dress by Carrie Parry - There's more than first meets the eye to this dotty print. The longer you gaze at it the more colours and patterns appear! Made from 88% recycled polyester, this dress can go from smart casual to party in the blink of an eye ;-)
Timeless Dress in Green Gradient by AFIA - This geometric print is sublime! The use of colour and texture just heightens the effect. Made from 100% Ghanian cotton by artisans, and women’s cooperatives, paid a fair wage for their craft
Bold African Print Dress by Fair + True - For me, this dress is a work of art. From the silhouette to the amazingly stunning design with its lush jungle of colours. This label is committed to creating fashion forward looks inspired by ethnic artistry under fair trade schemes that support communities in Kenya and Malawi
