Sustainable fashion is something we all should practice, even when it comes to dressing for weddings. Don’t spend unnecessary money buying a new dress for each wedding you have to attend, make a smart fashion choice and get a chic and versatile dress. The key is finding one with a sensible hemline, not in a bright colour and no loud prints. Not convinced? Here’s a video to show you how you can style one dress, three different ways – for a cocktail, destination or formal black tie wedding. To maximize the cost per wear of a dress (this one from Phase Eight costs $277), the key lies in choosing the right accessories (that you can wear for the everyday as well!)
Cocktail wedding - Opt for contemporary accessories that still stand out with minimalist design and shiny textures.

Destination wedding - If it's by the beach or on a mountain top, opt for eclectic accessories, keep to sensible shoes and don't forget stylish sunglasses.

Formal wedding - Go for glitz and glamour with timeless gold and silver accessories, there is no such thing as too much bling (even with a sparkly jacket).
