This small local chain gained popularity for stocking modern clothing brands that weren’t always easy to find in Baltimore. Their sleek, modern, yet warm store (there are some nice real-world objects tossed in as decor to keep things grounded) features denim from makers like Hudson, Joe’s Jeans, and Paige.
Urban Chic has a good variety of men’s and women’s apparel and shoes (including Hunter Wellington Boots), featuring brands like Vineyard Vines, Tibi, and Nanette Lepore. There’s also a good assortment of skin and beauty products from makers like Bliss, and even kids’ clothes.
