Disclaimer: I still love Zara. But so does everyone else. It only takes so long until I run into another inevitable polka-dot dress situation or find its trend offerings start to blur together no matter how many times a week I refresh the new-arrivals page. If you’ve ever experience Zara fatigue, know you’re not alone.
The good news is Zara isn’t the only option out there delivering fresh trends for reasonable prices. And no, I’m not just talking about other fast-fashion stores like H&M, Topshop, and Mango. There’s a whole horde of affordable brands that continue to fly under the radar. For those who are ready to try something other than Zara—at least temporarily—I’ve thrown together a list of 11 brands to bookmark instead.
So the next time you’re in search of a dress that five of your coworkers don’t already own, shop my recommended alternatives below.
