Guess what?! It’s time for another Mod Cloth vs. Anthro clothing duel, this time with a focus on skirts! For those of you who haven’t experienced a clothing duel here before, or for those of you who just need a little refresher, let’s look at how this works:

Many of you already know that Mod Cloth often has Anthropologie look-alikes. Well, that sounds great…get the Anthro look for less! But when you compare price and overall visual aesthetic, which comes out on top? That’s what we’re going to look at today!

The system will work like this: I compare Anthro and Mod Cloth look-alikes and dub one the winner of overall aesthetic and then one the winner overall (with price is factored in). Just for fun, I’ll also look at the names and dub a winner in that category. However, the name won’t factor into either of the other categories. 

Ready for some fun? Let’s get started!

A-doric-able Skirtvs.

Mod Cloth’s A-doric-able Skirt ($37.99) and Anthro’s Printed Elements Skirt (gold; $128)

So which wins?

Overall Aesthetic: Hmm…this is actually a bit hard for me. You see, personally, I’m just not a huge fan of either. So how do I decide which wins? Look at how they’re styled, of course!

A-doric-able Skirtvs.

Overall Aesthetic (con’t): For the most part, I think both are styled well. But I think I might just have to go with Mod Cloth!

Overall: Mod Cloth! Its price is unbeatable!

Name Game: It’s a close one, but I have to go for Mod Cloth’s clever take.

Wow! A Mod Cloth sweep for the first round!

Sleek and Find Skirtvs.

Mod Cloth’s Sleek and Find Skirt ($39.99) and Anthro’s Washi Wrap Skirt ($88)

So which wins?

Overall Aesthetic: Anthro wins! Mod Cloth’s version just looks a bit cheap, especially in comparison to Anthro’s!

Overall: Anthro! The price to pay for quality isn’t too, too bad in comparison to Mod Cloth’s version!

Name Game: I don’t love either of these names for these particular skirts, but if I must decide, I’ll go with Anthro.

Le Centre Pompidou Skirtvs.

Mod Cloth’s Le Centre Pompidou Skirt ($34.99) and Anthro’s Sunday Shopping Skirt ($78)

So which wins?

Overall Aesthetic: Anthro, for sure! It has such a retro, yet sophisticated vibe to it. Love the chambray too!

Overall: Anthro! Sure it’s more expensive, but I think it would be worth it to get a more one of a kind skirt!

Name Game: Anthro! Its name fits the casual skirt!

Social Hour Skirtvs.

Mod Cloth’s Social Hour Skirt ( $37.99) and Anthro’s Latticed Weekend Skirt ($148)

So which wins?

Overall Aesthetic: Mod Cloth’s version is definitely party attire, not work (look at its short length!). Anthro’s, on the other hand, is definitely fit for work (as well as other occasions). So which of those is better? I have to go with Anthro…sometimes short and lacey just don’t go together (that’s what Mod Cloth’s version is). Anthro’s is much more versatile, and beautiful!

Overall: I have to go with Anthro, even though the price is much higher. It’s more versatile though, so you’d probably get more wears out of it anyway. On sale, Anthro’s would be an even better option!

Name Game: I can admit that each name fits its respective skirt. So can I call it a tie?

And that wraps up our small duel today! Let’s look at the scorecard:

Overall Aesthetic: Mod Cloth with one win, Anthro with three

Overall: Mod Cloth with one win, Anthro with three

Name Game: Mod Cloth with one win, Anthro with two, and one tie

That means the ultimate winner of this duel is….

ANTHRO!

And now you know what? I’d love it if you’d fill out your own scorecard for today’s duel. Of course you don’t have to, but wouldn’t it be fun to compare notes?! If you’d like to do so, you can make your own scorecard, or copy and paste this one:
