Last weekend I went for dinner on the Kings Road in Chelsea with a couple of friends and on the way home, after we said our goodbyes, I couldn’t resist popping into Brandy Melville for a little browse and I didn’t leave empty handed!
I’m all about Brandy-esque styles right now, I love loose, oversized tees and tanks that are super simple, plain and comfy and if there’s one thing Brandy does well, it’s comfort! I love that their tees are so, so soft and the John Galt graphic tees are always to die for. This is what I picked up.
I spotted this tank top on Kendall Jenner and she’d teamed it with light blue jeans and white sneakers and I just loved how laid-back and relaxed the whole outfit looked. This tank wont look as good on me as it does on Kendall of course but what would?! Kaya Tank, £12
As if I don’t already own enough navy and white striped tees I thought I’d go and add yet another to my collection. I don’t know what my obsession is with tees like this but I just love wearing them with jeans and converse or with dark jeans and ankle boots for work – like I did today! This tee along with a few others sold at Brandy is designed by John Galt, a concession within the Brandy stores. Nadine Top, £15
Brandy Melville are renowned for this graphic moon-phase print and it first appeared on a crop top ages ago, now it’s back on this awesome vintage-inspired charcoal tee so I had to have it. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find this tee on the website but I think it cost me approx.£17, definitely no more than £20.
Finally, these sunnies were an impulse buy which I picked up at the till whilst I was paying. They were the last pair in the store and as I managed to drop and break my Topshop sunnies at the gym, I needed a new pair so nabbed these for £16. They also came with this cool faux-leather case which I thought I’d end up getting charged extra for but nope, included in the price, thank you very much Brandy Melville!
Just a quick note, I know Brandy gets a lot of criticism for it’s ‘one size fits most’ sizing and I have to admit, I would never pick up jeans or shorts in that store for that reason but as someone who is somewhere between a UK size 10/12 I find plenty in store that fits me well, and a lot of oversized tees/cardigans/sweaters that would comfortably fit up to a size 14/16. The staff are always so sweet and helpful so if you’re thinking about paying Brandy a visit (there’s also a store in Carnarby St now, hello) then I’d say go and do it, you’re bound to find something you love, don’t let the sizing structure put you off.
