10 Spring New Look Dresses That Are Stylishly Sustainable
10 Spring Dresses That Are Stylishly Sustainable
Seeing as dresses are one of New Look’s best-selling styles right now (fun facts: we’ve bought a total of 170,000 midi dresses since May 2020, 126,000 floral-print styles in the last year and, overall, dress sales went up on our site by 47% last month alone), they want to be certain that they’re giving us plenty of options to shop dresses that are sourced more responsibly.
‘How are they more responsible?’ we hear you ask. Well, it’s actually really simple. Some of their Kind dresses are made using less water and organic cotton, while other styles feature recycled fabrics or more sustainable materials. The best part? They are the same quality and the same amazing prices, only made in conditions that are good for the earth and the people who make them. Here they are…

3. White Floral Poplin Tiered Wrap Mini Dress – £25.99
If you thought that you were shopping planet-friendly cotton all along, you’re not alone.
