Fashion forecasters have been talking about the return of the 90s and they couldn’t have been more right. Calgary’s first Brandy Melville store opened up in Market Mall over the weekend, which brings an LA-inspired look and feel that combines the sensibilities of boho chic and it-girl grunge. The shop encompasses the aesthetics of ripped jeans, retro inspired band tees, printed kimonos tops and oversized slouchy sweaters that you’ll appreciate if you were a fan of Winona Ryder circa Reality Bites or the quirky flower child days of Drew Barrymore. This is your chance to celebrate the best elements of the decade that made neon and vogueing cool.
Here are a few other reasons to check out the new Brandy Melville shop:
Some of you ladies out there might think that Brandy Melville is more geared towards a younger crowd at first glance, but don’t be fooled. This is a great place to stock up on your key essentials. Items like the bomber jacket, the Caroline cardigan and monochrome kimono tops are perfect to throw over any outfit. These items will become your staples to work into different seasons.
There’s nothing like a few accessories to update your look, and this shop has a serious supply of everything from rings and bracelets to body chains and backpacks. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the options, start with pieces you can use with any look like the Reese infinity scarves or the stone chains that are perfect for layering.
The Price is Right
One of the best things about shopping at Brandy Melville is that everything is so reasonably priced. Whether you just need a few new shirts, dresses or you’re looking to do a bit of a style overhaul, chances are you’ll find everything within your budget.
So go ahead, schedule your next shopping spree.
