Adele just sparked a 1,600 person waitlist for this Reformation dress

Adele is undoubtedly one of the biggest vocal talents of her generation – but that’s not all. She’s also a major source of fashion inspiration for fans around the globe, as the frenzy that’s been caused by her latest purchase proves.

Pictures recently emerged of the star on holiday in Anguilla in the Caribbean, wearing a chic square-necked midi dress from sustainable brand Reformation. With a slim-fitting bodice, slightly puffed shoulders and relaxed splatter print, it was the perfect off-duty look for Adele; and now fans are desperate to follow in her style-savvy footsteps.

In fact, since Adele gave it her seal of approval, Marie Claire reports that the Sigmund dress has proved so popular that it sold out, and then racked up a waiting list of 1,600 people.

If you’re not feeling the navy and white print, it also comes in a black and a floral fabric in the same cool shape, and is available in a broad range of sizes 0-24, as it is part of Reformation’s extended sizing collection.

Adele’s not the only famous face to have been won over by Sigmund’s charms: Kaia Gerber and Julianne Hough have also been spotted in the square-necked number.

It’s not the first time Adele’s backed Reformation as her dress stockist of choice: at Christmas, she posted a snap to her personal Instagram account of herself in a similar black satin style (posing alongside The Grinch, no less), securing the shape as a firm favourite in her wardrobe.

While their pieces may not come cheap, Reformation prides itself on not only making effortless silhouettes that fit perfectly and are designed to be worn again and again, but crafting them from materials that uphold ‘Ref standards’.

‘We tried to make these standards as holistic as possible, taking into consideration water input, energy input, land use, eco-toxicity, greenhouse gas emissions, human toxicity, availability and price,’ it explains on its website.

Adele’s pick is made from a ‘lightweight drapey crepe fabric’ that comprises rayon made from wood pulp from sustainably managed forests – so if you copy her purchase, you’re investing in the planet as well as a new ensemble.
