You might think that no one does it like Reformation; the popular brand has managed to tie together eco-friendly fashion and impeccable style perfectly, which is why it’s won so many loyal fans since launching just over 10 years ago.
For most people it’s not an every day brand though, perhaps due to the slightly higher price point. So where else should you shop?
I’ve been searching for more sustainable and stylish fashion brands like Reformation, so I have some alternatives and I’m sharing them with you here.
Since 2015, Reformation has achieved complete carbon neutrality, positioning it as one of the most sustainable choices out there. The brand has high aims to surpass carbon neutrality and become climate positive too.
I’ve been distancing myself from fast fashion due to its significant environmental impact. It is reported that a staggering 15.1 million tons of textile waste were generated in 2013 alone, with most of this waste accumulating in landfills.
Stats like this can be concerning, but making small changes such as looking for sustainable options instead of your usual fast fashion stores and opting for buying better quality over quantity shouldn’t be dismissed. Every little helps!
I’m not saying you need to buy expensive clothes all the time, but it’s definitely a better idea to be mindful of your shopping. We’re so used to buying things we don’t really love and getting rid of them a few years later.
Why not save up for something you’re going to keep forever? Better for the planet, and better for your wardrobe space too!
Not every brand is as sustainable as Reformation, but this approach is the least we can do as consumers.
So with that in mind, I’ve found 5 high-quality brands for Reformation fans.

If you love Reformation dresses, you’re going to fall head over heels for Réalisation Par.
Their creations strike a balance so perfectly between being bold and fashion-forward, yet maintaining timeless appeal.
Expect everything from cute t-shirts to retro-inspired dresses. Their designs have genuine lasting power, making them pieces you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Rouje is inspired by women from all walks of life; they aim to create a new take on femininity that avoids cliché – music to our ears!
The brand is known for its perfect cuts and beautiful fabrics, but these pieces certainly aren’t boring. Like Reformation, you can expect classic prints, vintage-inspired silhouettes and chic accessories that French girls love.
Jeanne Damas is the Creative Director of the brand and sets the tone and vision for the collections. Her taste for vintage inspires the collections, making every Rouje piece timeless and made to last.
You might have heard of Cult Gaia bags, but did you know they now do clothes too?
After launching in 2011 as an accessories brand, their Ark bag took off – especially after Beyoncé was pictured wearing it. By 2017, they’d launched ready-to-wear and now they even do shoes!
Cult Gaia designs eye-catching pieces that are intricate, artistic, beautiful and ‘perfectly imperfect’. We love that!
The name comes from the goddess Gaia, who represents creativity and Mother Earth. These pieces are designed to live forever; you definitely won’t want to give anything away.
Anthropologie offers a huge variety of products, from summer dresses to beautiful homeware, making it the perfect one-stop shop for anyone looking to upgrade their life.
While their designs used to be quite boho-inspired, they’ve taken a turn more recently to create timeless and undeniably chic designs. I’m a sucker for their summer dresses personally – and they offer plus sizes too.
They’re a little more affordable than Reformation, sitting on the upper end of the high street. You can expect to pay around £100 for a dress.
The brand is working on becoming more sustainable through a program called ‘A Greater Good’. This aims to make a lasting impact on society by fostering connections, supporting sustainable practices, empowering women, and promoting inclusivity.
De La Vali
De La Vali (DLV) is a fashion brand that pays special attention to cut and silhouette, celebrating femininity and empowering women to feel confident.
The brand takes inspiration from artist Vali Myers and aims to create positive change through sustainable practices such as using recycled and innovative fabrics, reducing carbon footprint, and limiting wastage.
As a young company, DLV is committed to continuously learning, growing, and implementing positive change to contribute to a more sustainable and successful future.
While it’s a designer brand (with designer prices to match), their pieces are worth the splurge if you’re looking for an event dress or something to keep forever; think feather trims and diamante embellishment.
