A true original. With its funky style and nods to vintage fashion, Urban has us coming back for more. Not to mention interesting and hilarious gifts. Their home and lifestyle brand offers cool textiles and stand out pieces. Yet, where does one go when Urban is not an option? Not to worry, we’ve put together a list of Urban like brands to wet your whistle.
A sister brand of Urban Outfitters. Anthropologie offers a similar feel.
With over 200 stores worldwide, their online brand features unique styles similar to Urban.
Unlike Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie is a purely a woman’s wear brand.
Expanding the women’s section, Anthropologie features amazing dresses. Dresses that can be worn to a wedding, the beach, and certainly dresses that are sure to turn heads.
Their shoes and accessories are also impressive. Vintage sneakers and velvet platforms are only a couple of options.
Anthropologie’s bag collection is absolutely adorable. Wicker tote bags and textured leopard print clutches are a couple that are eye-catching. You can also find updated fanny packs done in rich suede and leather.
They also have a remarkable home and furniture department. Adorn your home with stunning sofas and sectionals in velvet and leather. Choose from hip colors like chartreuse and mulberry.
One of a kind light fixtures like an exaggerated bulb chandelier or a brass flamingo lamp. Pieces that will truly dazzle your home.
This Swedish multinational clothing brand has become the fast fashion brand.
H&M has over 4,500 stores in 62 countries. Making it one of the most accessible clothing brands.
The price point at H&M really can’t be beaten. Styles ranging from sporty to formal.
I have found if you check in at H&M every once in a while, you can find that one of a kind gem.
A lot of styles and cuts that lend themselves to affordable high fashion.
Fun and cheeky graphic t-shirts and sweatshirts, much like the ones found at Urban.
In recent years H&M has also stepped up their formal wear. It’s easy for men to find a three-piece suit or woman to find a charming cocktail dress.
H&M Home founded in 2009 offers trendy home essentials.
Modern throw pillows starting at $5.99. Soft textured throw blankets in dusty pink and charcoal gray as low at $29.99.
They have stylish decorations for your home like leather framed mirrors, hand shaped dishes and vases to name a couple of the quirky touches H&M home features.
All super affordable.
Asos a British online fashion retailer offers the biggest mixed bag of styles.
Purley online, this brand’s variety cannot be beaten.
Asos offers super funky designs. For instance, a woman can find a cow print denim jacket or bright gold faux fur coat.
Men can find a metallic blue turtleneck or faux leather pants.
Asos has its own brand as well as other brands like Tommy Hilfiger, North Face, and Ted Baker.
Not everything is cutting edge. They have an array of basics in hundreds of colors and styles.
Like Urban, they have an impressive shoe selection. Women can find platform heels or over the knee boots. Men can find dressy loafers or athletic sneakers.
Adidas, Doc Martens, and Converse are only a couple of brands the shoe section offers.
Asos is purely online. Sizing can differ from brand to brand and style. Asos offers an online measurement guide, I highly suggest you measure yourself.
This being said, the company is great with returns and refunds.
A British fashion retailer with over 500 shops worldwide.
Topshop delivers some of the latest fashions and new season trends.
In addition to Topshop’s own brand, they feature other brands like Calvin Klein, Adidas, and Fila.
The women’s section has contemporary catsuits and whimsical rompers.
Not to mention an impressive lingerie and sleepwear selection. Ranging from stain slips to on-trend bralets.
Topman is their men’s clothing brand. Here you can find incredible modern blazers in floral silk or pinstripe. Check out their swanky bomber jackets and preppy sweaters.
Topshop and Topman tend to lean towards European sizing. I recommend trying on clothing before purchasing, or following a sizing guide.
Yes, Urban has one of a kind finds, but there are other competitive brands out there. If you’re looking for a sexy upscale look, check out Topshop. If you want a unique standout piece, scroll through ASOS online. Add a couple of new throw pillows to your couch at half the price with H&M. Any of these brands are sure to keep your personal style funky and fresh.
