I still own the very first item I ever purchased from Anthropologie—a gray pleated midi skirt with each pleat featuring a different floral Liberty print. At the time I didn’t know any other stores like Anthropologie, which had completely transformed the plain white cube of a shopping mall stall into something more akin to an English cottage or Spanish villa. Roughly 15 years later, the brand still has that elevated boho vibe that lets thousands of women, both in the U.S. and internationally, picture themselves vacationing off the coast of Italy, growing their own vegetables in their backyards or embodying a vintage vibe without the stress of vintage shopping, all through the power of impeccable styling.
Nowadays there are also many more brands similar to Anthro, for both clothing and home decor. Here, we’ve rounded up 17 of the best stores to shop if you’re looking for that elevated boho chic Anthropologie does so well.
