I Stopped by the Urban Outfitters Store–17 Pieces I Tried on That are Worth It


(Image credit: @copelynshaw)

Walking into a fresh, clean retail store has become a euphoric experience for me. There’s just something about seeing pieces IRL, starting a fitting room, and leaving with the immediate gratification of purchase that does it for me. This week, I popped (well intended to pop until I got carried away) into the three-story Herald Square Urban Outfitters store and two hours later, these are my findings. 

I tried on a mixture of comfortable knitwear, modern basics, lustworthy accessories, and (one of my favorite items to shop at Urban Outfitters) pants. From cargo pants to baggy jeans to relaxed trousers, I definitely hit the pants jackpot.

PSA, I took pictures of everything I loved and included it below so that you can shop right from the comfort of your couch. Keep scrolling to enjoy in the experience. 


Yes, I immediately dipped into the menswear section for this dreamy crochet button down. I stuck to Jacquemus-type hues for the rest of the ensemble. I added a simple cropped tank top, these neccessary camel trousers, and this relaxed baguette bag with hardware details. As I mentioned my kinship to Urban Outfitters pants, these tailored trousers were the perfect balance of a baggy pant with structured details.

My bent for bright accessories was very obvious upon seeing this highlighter-orange bucket hat. From there, I saw the bag and the rest is history. Although the accessories are the statement, this beige knit top is not to be overlooked as it was super cozy–the ideal work-from-home or lounge top.

This was my "casual city girl" look featuring my favorite find–these green parachute pants. They are definitely baggy but with a drawstring waist that has them fitting anyone perfectly. An extremely fuzzy cardigan, an athleisure tank top, and this super cool Dodgers hat finished off my look.

Confession, I have this purse in pink but seeing it in black almost had me doubling up. So many trends in this look with the cropped cargo jacket, popcorn-textured dress, and chunky hoop earrings. These earrings are reminiscent of the viral Bottega Veneta pair that everyone is wearing currently, yet they're only $15.

Another favorite piece was this oversized button down, I wore it open so it wouldn't overwhelm the whole ensemble. And of course, I'm in love with the jeans because The Ragged Priest has the best affordable trend-forward denim. I tossed on this subtle Yankee's hat in tan.
