These Brands Are Just Like Aritzia & No One Knows About Them Yet
Let the shopping spree begin.
If you're up to date on your favorite influencers' latest street style moments, then you've probably scrolled past more than one oversized puffer coat that was layered to perfection. (PSA: You can find that exact coat at Aritzia.) Aside from the ever-so-popular Super Puff jacket, the Vancouver-based retailer has also won over hearts for its minimally chic aesthetic. It's a key destination for those core wardrobe staples at an attainable price. However, if you're looking to broaden your horizons a bit, consider shopping these 11 brands like Aritzia for even more elevated essentials.
Aside from Aritzia’s everyday pieces, other modern brands such as The Frankie Shop and RE ONA offer every staple you need to fill the gaps in your wardrobe from cozy knits to luxe basics. The Frankie Shop has the latest trends from sweater vests to wide-leg trousers — you’ll practically get lost in all the stylish modern pieces. The label is a go-to for the modern woman who is looking for timeless pieces with a unique touch. Meanwhile, RE ONA has more of a clean and minimalistic aesthetic, where you’ll find yourself wondering if you should upgrade all your everyday basics for a high-quality version. That’s not all, though, as The Frankie Shop and RE ONA are only two trendy brands out of the other stylish labels that are attracting attention from fashion-forward celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Hailey Bieber.

This brand is beloved over at Revolve (its parent company), and it’s easy to see why. It has uniquely cut tops, dresses, and tailored pants that rival Aritzia’s design aesthetic, while being about 20% less expensive. You can grab a dress for the next wedding you’re attending for under $100 and a sparkly top for next month’s bachelorette party all in the same place.
Calling all basics-lovers! There’s nothing basic about these everyday tees and tanks that you’ll want to live in — especially now that stretchy pants are more acceptable than ever. Add some gold jewelry to any Joah Brown piece, and you’re ready for a first date or even dinner with your parents. Plus, all the clothes are American-made right in Los Angeles.
Frank And Oak
Like Aritzia, Frank and Oak is a brand based in Canada that focuses on sustainable fashion. It removes all new plastic and polyester from the supply chain, so everything is produced from recycled materials. This brand is known for tailored basics that you can wash over and over and will still hold their shape.
Pixie Market was founded in 2006 by co-founders Gaelle Drevet and Magda Pietrobelli. The store is known for its stylish and polished ready-to-wear items. Don’t be alarmed if the pieces look expensive, as the prices won't break the bank. Luckily, you can now peruse its offerings online, as when it first launched, the store resided only in New York City's Lower East Side.
The Frankie Shop
The Frankie Shop is another prized label founded by Drevet and is the "older sister" brand to Pixie Market. The cool-girl destination nails luxe basics, which can be attributed to its loyal following — celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Hailey Bieber, influencers, and even editors. The brand is a favorite among the fashion crowd since 2014 and has locations in New York City's Lower East Side and Paris. If you aren't nearby either of the cities, you can shop on the retailer's site, as well as on Net-a-Porter. If you see something you love, don't sleep on it — the products often sell out fast.
Are you looking to update your back-to-work outfit with a new oversized suit set, or are you on the search for everyday pieces like T-shirts and shorts? Your search ends here. RE ONA is a Black-owned brand that specializes in chic luxe basics. The label’s founders are London-born sisters Christina and Philiscia Abayomi, who sought to create a brand that encompassed the quality clothing from their Nigerian culture and the sophisticated London style. In its selection, you'll only find neutral shades like browns, tans, and creams, so you can even create a monochromatic look.
COS is a heaven for minimalists with its inventory of modern pieces that will instantly elevate your closet. The collection features every essential you need to curate your wardrobe – think luxe boots, cozy shirtdresses, button-up blouses, and wool coats. Plus, looking at the beautiful assortment, you'd never guess how affordable the brand is. (You can get a high-quality double-breasted coat for less than $300.)
If you like your basics with a little bit of edge, look no further than Local European. The Los Angeles-based brand creates “timeless silhouettes with modern touches,” according to its website, along with trendy pieces like cargo pants (which will be everywhere in 2022). From comfy sweatpants to going-out tops, this brand has everything you need to build a trend-forward capsule wardrobe.
& Other Stories
If you ask a group of fashion girls where they frequently shop for stylish staples, chances are & Other Stories is high up on their lists. Within the brand, you'll spot pieces with pastel hues like pistachio and lilac, as well as exciting, eye-catching prints. Don’t worry, there's something for minimalists too. They also feature every basic you need: long coats, chunky turtlenecks, and cardigans galore.
Totême features classic silhouettes with chic designs and is known for making "go-to uniforms.” The sophisticated label is based in New York and designed in Stockholm. While the pieces are a bit more expensive than other brands on this list, you'll be investing in an item that will last for years.
The Hour is a London-based luxury plus-size label that offers sizes 10 to 24. The brand's lavish selection of dresses, coats, knitwear, and trousers are made to beautifully drape the body. You can find colorful two-tone blazers, embellished coats, and abstract printed dresses. All of the pieces are designed to be versatile, so you can easily coordinate with any item from your wardrobe.
Reformation is a bohemian and feminine fashion brand adored by celebrities like Emma Roberts and Taylor Swift. The brand is based in Los Angeles and focuses on sustainability, using materials like Tencel and Viscose to construct the products. While Reformation is often associated with denim and sundresses, you can also find staples like bodysuits and upscale blouses. There’s also frequently a waitlist for its popular pieces (consider checking out the back in stock tab), so you know the label must be worth the hype.
Petite girls, rejoice — this one is for you. The New York-based brand specializes in fit and tailoring for petite women. The label's philosophy is to invest in the basics, meaning skip the fast fashion. The website states that the pieces are intended to last a long time, as the company focuses on detail and creating quality pieces — its average garment takes 20 hours to construct. You can finally say goodbye to hemming fees.
Mijeong Park is still somewhat under the radar, but you can find classic and timeless gems. The Los Angeles-based brand was founded in 2015, and the collection of modern silhouettes and neutral tones are inspired by California’s comfortable vibe. The label, which is just like Aritzia except that few know about it, is worth checking out. It’s stocked with effortlessly cool must-haves like neck warmers, which look like a blend between a cardigan draped over your shoulders and a cape.
If you're excited about a new trend, but aren't thrilled about the steep designer price tag, Mango is for you. You'll spot cool pieces: quilted jackets, biker jackets, and leather Bermuda shorts all for fair prices. In addition, you'll see the affordable attire on celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Katie Holmes, and Sophie Turner, so naturally, the line is a celeb favorite.
