1 Dress, 6 Ways.

 

As part of the #letssustainfashion campaign, I made six looks that feature around one dress. It’s simply insane to hear statistics about how little people wear their clothes. I really love fashion and showcasing lots of looks but personally, I never buy anything I’m not gonna wear constantly, it’s just too wasteful. Let me know which look was your favorite in the comments!
