Urban Outfitters, part of the retail portfolio URBN, will forever be notorious for its retro 90s grunge skills, blending into the bohemian touch of the 70s. Surprisingly, shoppers are constantly looking for more affordable, sustainable, or inclusive versions of the brand (founded in 1970 and operating more than 200 stores ranging from clothing and accessories to home products). Whatever your preferred outfit, whether you like satirical slogan hoodies, vintage-inspired trousers, or printed tops with smoky, ribbing or floater sleeves, one of the front 14 stores will speak to you.
Labels such as For Love & Lemons and Daze Dayz are well-known for swimwear, loungewear and resorts, and you’ll be surprised to learn of some recently expanded clothing lines that are compatible with the signature aesthetics of urban outfits. For a site that creates that same impression from other independent designers, look at Lisa Says Gah or Zara or Aritzia and you’ll find a more youthful, nostalgic twist to Pool & Bear in regular silhouettes. Meanwhile, Wray NYC, consciously, and Cider offers a large stock of extended sizes, and Free People and I Dream for You have this free-will policy in their products and styling.
