Urban Outfitters is known for its urban/street attire and is one of those highly innovative specialty retail companies that offers a variety of lifestyle merchandise to highly defined customer niches — those who love vintage, emo, indie, or just standout/strange fashion wear. It’s known for carrying an eclectic mix of merchandise consisting of clothing, home decor, and accessories. It’s not just about the product assortment, either. With Urban, the emphasis is on creativity, targeting those with a real interest in contemporary art, fashion, and music (i.e., millennials).
Founded in 1970, Urban Outfitters operates over 200 stores across the U.S., Canada, and Europe, touting a lifestyle-specific shopping experience “for the educated, urban-minded individual in the 18 to 30 year-old range — both online and in our stores as well as through our catalog.” Whether you’re familiar with Urban Outfitters and have shopped there before or just know a little about it, sophistication is probably not a word you associate with it; however, the retailer happens to offer fantastically unique and well-made pieces that when paired correctly will hold up to your standard for top notch, trendy outfits. These three outfits manage to be both refined and slightly wild.
1. Biker meets casual skater wear
This outfit features a bold Hawkings McGill Stretch Skinny Chino Pant in dark purple, making it adventurous, yet still suitable for most occasions. Pair your chinos with CPO Stevens Overdyed Shirt in blue, the O’Hanlon Mills Calhoun Sweater in black, and of course, Urban Outfitter’s Your Neighbors Leather Flight Jacket in black. Finish the look with Goorin Bros. X UO Big Apple Baseball Hat in brown and Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue Denim Sneaker in black.
2. Brave the city cold in style
The temperature is dropping, and having a North Face jacket is always a good idea, but it’s an even better idea when it’s paired comfortably with the Publish Sprinter Jogger Pant in black. Pair with the Feathers Curved Hem Tee in white and the Pendleton Short Sands Cardigan in tan. The North Face Gotham Jacket II in grey and the UO Classic Beanie in dark grey are essential for cold weather, and the look isn’t finished until you’re donning a pair of Hawkings McGill Key Cleat Boots in black.
3. The urban gentleman’s day off
You should never have to sacrifice style, especially when you’re off duty. This outfit is built around autumn/winter 2015’s hottest item: the camel coat. Almost anything you pair with Your Neighbors Notch Lapel Top Coat in tan will make you look on-point. You’ll want to wear BDG Standard-Fit Crew Neck Tee in white and this BDG Colorblock Pullover Hooded Sweatshirt in ivory underneath the coat, while Levi’s 511 Grey 3D Slim Jean in grey will make sure your lower body is equally stylish. Finish off the look by rocking a Coal The Frena Solid Beanie in maroon and these Adidas Superstar Foundation Reptile Sneakers in white.
