At the bi-level Urban Outfitters, which opened on Atlantic Avenue last month, summer is already in full swing.
With racks of barely-there dresses, straw hats, short shorts and more, the hyper-trendy chain seems to be forecasting this summer’s signature look as “almost naked.” From the short tunics by Lux to Dolce Vita’s super high-rise “Betty” shorts, everything the shop has to offer looks tiny, but with brutally hot days on their way, you can’t discount the importance of catching a breeze.
For guys, the store’s basement offers a variety of garments — whether you’ve been expelled from Andover or just want to look like it. Preppy striped ties, boat shoes and rumpled plaid dress shirts are the store’s summer menswear mainstays. And while T-shirts with ironic slogans haven’t completely disappeared, the store has embraced a more adult image.
Urban Outfitters is located at 166 Atlantic Ave. between Court and Clinton streets in Cobble Hill. For information, call (718) 488-7143 or visit www.urbanoutfitters.com.
