From bohemian to classic, Anthropologie seems to have a style for everyone. We are so fortunate to have one of their stores in Fort Worth. With its artsy interior design and merchandise display, you get a “cool vibe” the minute you walk in.
It was a blast when my friends, Laurie and Rochelle, and I recently modeled in their annual fall style show….thanks to Tamara Zrostlik, Anthropologie apparel manager. And a bonus….we got to work with their in-house stylist, Carol Lumpkin. The style show theme was “Layers of Love,” benefiting Living beyond Breast Cancer. The outfit I modeled was a pair of grey skinny jeans complemented with an oversized white turtleneck with dramatic sleeves and draped with a plaid cardigan….plus lots of “layers” of bracelets.
Browsing Anthro’s online store can be just as fun as being in the actual store. When you click on “Shop the Trend” you will discover this month’s trend is menswear. Man, oh man….we are loving these looks! From a pair of plaid leggings matched with a white sweater and belted mojo jacket to a striped shirt dress, you will find some wonderfully inspired options. A great look for the fall season is their navy double-knit blazer paired with jeans and a navy and white striped t-shirt. For a trendy pop, they added a scarf-tied yellow handbag and a pair of animal print loafers.
At age 74, Lauren Hutton, is Anthro’s menswear muse. The fact that they chose a “seasoned” woman to be their fall ambassador makes me love them that much more! With over 53 years of modeling experience, Hutton ups Anthro’s game with her ageless style. We think she “brings it” when wearing a pair of striped Hepburn wide leg pants complemented with a lovely white blouse. And of course, she looks fabulous in a grey sweater dress draped with a long belted coat. So many great looks for every age…don’t you think?
You will want to be sure to check out their jewelry selection in the store and online as well. I was thrilled to discover one of my favorite Australian-based jewelry designers, Amber Sceats, has teamed up with Anthropologie. Her resin jewelry embodies artistic style and individuality. From her green resin hoop earrings to her Tokyo resin bracelets, “she creates a timeless tribute to abstract expression.” How artistic does that sound?
For my everyday go-to style, I love wearing Anthro’s monogramed “H” initial necklace, because it goes with everything I own and is so on-trend! Another necklace I’m coveting is their triple relic coin set. You can choose to make a subtle statement by wearing them individually, or opt for a trendy, layered look. Anyway you wear them, this set will add a classic touch to your style.
So there you have it….a quick guide to shopping at Anthropologie. Be sure to browse online and check out more options on our Pinterest board. And speaking of “layers of love”….think about loving yourself and make an appointment with their in-house stylist, Carol Lumpkin! Trust me….it will be so worth it!
