Well before Y2K fashion made its comeback, Philly-based retailer Urban Outfitters had its eye on the decade. We've always turned to the ahead-of-the-game retailer for cool collaborations with brands like Miaou and Champion and for really, really good vintage denim.
We continue to rely on UO year-round for slightly trendy basics and standout pieces alike, and we're always on the lookout for similar stores offering throwback pieces we can mix and match with our tried-and-true favorites. We're talking about stores like Reformation (those slip dresses!), trendy brands like Mango (for runway-inspired pieces we can actually afford), and British imports like ASOS (another retailer doing early aughts style very, very well). Keep reading to discover 10 stores to shop if you love Urban Outfitters.
Though you may need a lot of patience to flip through the epic selection of products from ASOS, you'll find everything from a wedding guest dress to a vacation-ready high-waisted bikini. The retailer is also pretty quick with the trends, including those that are more under the radar, so it's an excellent source for trendy pieces that haven't yet hit the mainstream. Above all, its price points won't drain your bank account—you could secure a whole wardrobe refresh for under $200.
2. Tiger Mist
Chances are you've already seen Tiger Mist while scrolling through your feed. Based in Australia, the brand offers all the popping IG trends, specifically going-out tops and cutout dresses. Another highlight is its selection of cute two-piece sets in various fun prints and patterns.
Strictly online, Rumours is one of the newest e-commerce shops to gain a following among the fashion set. Similar to Urban Outfitters, it carries a mix of styles, from pretty Y2K dresses to grungecore tops. Everything is moderately priced, too, which is good news because you'll likely want to buy everything in stock.
Dresses from Reformation are a no-brainer—the designer's mini, midi, and maxi options will take you through the morning, noon, and night with little fuss. But aside from its pretty dresses, there's a case for Reformation's quality denim. The fit rivals some of the best denim brands on the market, and the brand has a variety of washes.
If you haven't yet heard of Storets, it's time to know now. It has a slightly more high-fashion vibe than Urban Outfitters, but it's a trendy vibe all the same. Cool outerwear and knit separates reign supreme here, and the store is a go-to for fashion insiders.
This one doesn't need much of an introduction. Stocking all the best '90s-inspired pieces and more brands, Revolve is the marketplace for cool designers you might be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. It should be on your short list if the goal is compliment-inducing party outfits. From seductive tops to dresses, anything from Revolve is bound to grab someone's attention.
7. Lisa Says Gah
All the quirky girls love Lisa Says Gah. Carrying brands such as Paloma Wool and Ganni, the store features an eclectic mix of indie brands and mainstream designers that are rarely found anywhere else. Yet Lisa Says Gah also has an in-house collection that's just as worthy of your attention. Fans particularly love its array of bold and unique prints.
8. & Other Stories
Often overlooked, this affordable fashion retailer is the place we go when we want to shop for everything from floral midi skirts to cropped tees. Truth be told, & Other Stories has awesome shoes and accessories too. Maybe it's the hint of French-girl chic or the elevated, trend-forward pieces, but it's a continual name on editors' lists.
Nordstrom has always been a favorite, but the retailer's in-house brand Open Edit is worth another look. With a size-inclusive lineup, it has practically built the foundation of our everyday wardrobes with a wallet-friendly price point. And of course, the collection has its finger on the pulse of what's new and evolving within fashion circles.
More elevated than the rest, Mango is the place to find your trendy favorites with a grown-up twist. Don't forget to browse its accessories, which are arguably some of the best affordable dupes for designer pieces.
