summer dresses eco.jpg

In this week's installment of eco-friendly summer dresses, it's all about bold, funky prints. Quite a lot of the season's looks are brightly coloured and a bit retro, and here are three of my favourites that have gone in for that loud summer vibe.

Organic cotton 'splotch print' dress by Untouched World
I'm totally in love with this black and red stylish yet casual dress by cult New Zealand label Untouched World. It's made from 100% certified organic cotton. £80 at The Natural Store

People Tree 'Jessica' dress
I don't recall there ever being a summer when gingham wasn't in, and 2008 is no exception. Made from handwoven cotton, the Jessica dress is certified fairtrade and has super-cute coconut shell buttons down the front. £32 from People Tree

Organic cotton halter-neck dress
Fun and flirty, this is a classic style for summer. This one's made from 100% organic cotton and comes in two styles: light show (above) and a classic Hawaiian print that would go down a storm on the beach. Just £27.50 at Natural Collection
