Overdressed’s author Elizabeth Cline offers a look at fast fashion from an different perspective , enlightening readers of the negative effects it is having on our planet , our culture and general well-being.

Some of the solutions highlighted in Overdressed include:

- Buy from independent and local designers and boutiques.
- Buy from secondhand or vintage shops.
- Think of the future.
