Anthropologie was originally created as alternative to Urban Outfitters for women who felt they were aging out of the brand. Now, they define themselves as the go-to store for “a creative-minded woman, who wants to look like herself, not the masses.” Anthropologie doesn’t want its customers to feel trapped by trends, but instead to feel free to explore any style that makes them feel comfortable. They cater to the “five muses: soft & delicate; boho chic; easy cool; elegant classic; and modern sporty.”

As thanks for your generosity, Madewell will take $20 off your next pair of jeans!
