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, in both 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 15 of the best stores to shop if you’re looking for that elevated boho chic Anthropologie does so well. So now you can outfit yourself and your home without actually looking like a catalog.

Christy Dawn

1. Christy Dawn

This sustainably and ethically made clothing line is a great for those looking to make their wardrobes more eco-friendly. Christy Dawn is a spectacular place to pick up a trendy new nap dress or breezy blouse in beautiful rich hues and dainty prints. That said, there’s also sustainable lounge sets, easy jumpsuits and upcycled leather footwear to shop too. It you see something you like, however, we suggest you act fast, as new styles tend to sell out fairly quickly. Dresses run between $150 and $300, and everything is available in sizes XS to XL. There’s also a kids line if your daughter or niece is often envious of your outfits.

Available in sizes XS to XL

Farm Rio

2. Farm Rio

This cheerful Brazilian brand actually sells some pieces through Anthropologie, but there are many more exclusive to its brand website. Sustainability and the spirit of Rio de Janeiro are paramount to Farm Rio’s aesthetic. Here you’ll find vibrant prints, bold colors and mixed patterns a plenty. Prices are slightly higher than Anthro, with dresses coming in between $200 and $300 (although there are some styles under $100), but the craftsmenship is impeccable and you’d be hard pressed to find prints more fun. Farm Rio currently offers sizes XS to XL, but fingers crossed it expands into plus sizes soon.

& Other Stories

3. & Other Stories

This Swedish retailer has a similarly dreamy vibe to Anthro, but is more pared back in terms of color palette and design. There are fewer bold prints or super bright colors to be found, but lace detailing and delicate buttons are definitely part of the & Other Stories wheelhouse. In fact, we’d venture to say it’s like a combination of Everlane and Anthropologie, combining sophisticated, minimalist basics and special, vintage-inspired pieces. The brand also sells shoes, bags and beauty, and sizes run from 0 to 12 or XS to L depending on the item. Most everything is under $200, making this a nice alternative for those on a budget, and & Other Stories has also been slowly but surely improving its sustainability efforts over the past few years.

Available in sizes 0 to 12


4. Shopbop

Folks of all different personal styles can find something they’ll love at Shopbop, including those with an elevated boho sense. We suggest checking out the Fashion Finds Under $200 section for more affordable options (sitewide prices range from under 100 bucks up into the low four-digit range), or look through the Discover page for more trend-focused pulls. You can also shop by brand—Ulla Johnson (as seen above), For Love and Lemons, Cleobella and Shoshanna should all fit the bill, but there are others for you to explore as well. And while Shopbop has yet to branch into plus-size, it’s begun offering extended sizes for certain pieces, so will hopefully continue in the same direction.

Buy it ($445)

Available in sizes 00 to 12

Free People

5. Free People

Free People, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters are all owned by the same parent company, so it should come as no surprise that there is some definite overlap in style notes between all three. We think UO is best for home goods (more on that later), but Free People is a great place to pick up similarl boho dresses, pants and blouses. Prices are typically a bit more affordable than Anthro, but this isn’t always the case as some specialty frocks can run you upward of $400. Our favorite pieces to shop are FP’s floaty maxis, easy basics and activewear. And while Free People offers sizes XS through XL, many pieces are designed to have an oversize fit, so if you’re new to the brand we highly suggest reading the reviews to get a better sense of which size will fit you how you want.

Buy it ($98)

Available in sizes XS to XL


6. Madewell

Madewell definitely has a more utilitarian feel than Anthropologie—its leather goods, denim and chore jackets are more down to earth than Anthro’s floaty frocks and wide-leg pants—but there are a number of blouses, dresses and skirts that would blend in there well. Right now, Madewell has a whole host of dainty floral patterns and tiered midi dresses you’ll likely love, as well as some fun jewelry worth checking out. Most items are under $200, and most tops are under $120, and sizes range from an XXS to 3X (or 00 to 22).

Buy it ($72)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

Mara Hoffman

7. Mara Hoffman

Mara Hoffman is another eco-conscious brand, although it is more high-end than most of the others on this list. Its perhaps best-known for its chic swimwear, but the brand also makes gorgeous ready-to-wear pieces, often in subtly dramatic silhouettes (like large balloon sleeves, maxi lengths and bold color-blocking). Although Mara Hoffman has been steadily expanding its plus-size options, with most items going up to a size 3X from an XXS, not everything is available above an XL. If you go to Anthropologie to find pieces that’ll make you feel like you’re on a luxurious seaside vacation someplace like Positano or Santorini, get ready to fall in love with Mara Hoffman.

Buy it ($575)

Available in sizes 00 to 12


8. Sézane

This French brand has a very grown-up femme aesthetic, with plenty of ruffles, florals and puff-sleeves, but also a tailored, posh approach. Sézane’s fans, of which there are many, go there in search of delicate knits and Parisian-inspired dresses, but the brand has also recently expanded into home goods. It is about the same price range as Anthropologie, but unfortunately does not offer plus sizes (it only goes up to a 14).

Buy it ($120)

Available in sizes 2 to 14


9. Dôen

This floaty boho brand has something of a cult following in SoCal, and it’s been gaining in popularity across the country over the past few years, as well. Dôen’s dainty printed dresses sell out pretty quickly, so we suggest you buy what you like ASAP (you can always return it with free shipping if it doesn’t work out). The frocks, tops and sleepwear don’t come cheap—almost everything sits between $100 and $400—but the pieces are beautiful and will garner you a ton of compliments, guaranteed. You can also often find Dôen clothes on resale sites like Poshmark or ThredUp in great condition if you’re looking for a lower price point.

Available in sizes XS to XL

10. Terrain

Terrain is actually part of the Anthropologie/Free People/Urban Outfitters family. It focuses mostly on outdoor furniture and luxe garden goods, but you can easily use many pieces indoors as well. There are woven baskets, hanging light pendants, dried flower bouquets (and vases) and real plants (and pots) to decorate your home, inside and out. Terrain also hits a lower price point than almost all of Anthro’s furniture pieces, which is a major bonus for you and your wallet.

Oliver Bonas

11. Oliver Bonas

Oliver Bonas actually sells both home goods and clothing, but it’s the selection of eclectic wares that we really love most. The brand is best for stocking up on smaller goods, like tableware, candles, throws and other accessories, as well as artwork. Pretty much everything is under $100, meaning you can go ham adding lots of brightly colors to your cart without worry of going way over budget.

Buy it ($19)

Urban Outfitters

12. Urban Outfitters

We mentioned Urban Outfitters earlier as being owned by the same parent company as Anthro. But the clothes tend to lean younger and edgier than Anthropologie’s sophisticated bohemia, which is why we think UO is a better place to hunt for Anthro-esque home goods rather than blouses. The furniture and beddings in particular have a similar vintage feel, but are often much less expensive. So if you’re looking to redo your bedroom (or living room or kitchen) sometime soon, we suggest looking here first before you splurge at Anthropologie.

Buy it ($599)

World Market

13. World Market

World Market has a wide range of pieces ranging from under $100 up into the four digit range, but a lot of its selection could easily fit into an Anthro catalog living room. Or outdoor patio or bathroom or dining room. The site has sections dedicated to mid-century, farmhouse, industrial and artisan furniture, so you can really pin-point what it is you love about Anthropologie’s selection and then search for complementary or similar styles, often with lower price tags, here.

Buy it ($40)


14. Opalhouse

Ah, Target, how we love you so. Of course this one-stop-shop for anything and everything would have Anthro-worthy decor included in its offerings. While you can find boho chic pieces scattered across the store, it’s the Opalhouse line that we specifically recommend checking out. There are tons of adorable little pieces, like jewelry boxes, candles, decorative trays and throw pillows, to place about your home, but the line also includes furniture and wall decor. And, being Target, prices are super affordable, meaning you won’t have to blow your whole budget on one fabulous side table.

Buy it ($160)

The Artisan Variety

15. The Artisan Variety

The Artisan Variety is actually a collective of lots of artisans across multiple countries, including Bangladesh, Kenya, Senegal and India. It’s kind of like if someone created a beautifully curated Etsy shop just for Anthropologie fans. While it doesn’t have much in the way of furniture, The Artisan Variety does have plenty of tablewares, garden goodies and decorative vases, baskets and throws to choose from. Prices are generally under $200, and you can feel good knowing your purchases go toward helping artists across the world earn a better living for themselves and their families.

Buy it ($225 for set of three)
