Queen of Basics

In my opinion, Brandy Melville is the Queen of basic, loose, soft tops. Whenever I browse through their website, I just find a wide variety of the most effortless-looking loose tops. If any of you have visited a Brandy Melville store before, you’ll understand what I mean as well! Their clothes seem super simple, yet I like the basic look of it. They also have the SOFTEST fabric ever. Like seriously, this material is SOFT. I own a couple Brandy Melville pieces and I absolutely love the lightweight and extremely comfortable material. I absolutely love comfortable and simple pieces so having a few Brandy basics is great for me.

I know there tends to be a lot of controversy over Brandy Melville items. The whole “one size” issue and the fact that their quality is not necessarily the best seems to be the main concerns. In addition, their items are on the pricier end for just a simple basic tee. I can definitely understand why people have such concerns over this store, as I personally believe that Brandy Melville is very overhyped. Especially living in California, it’s a very popular store that everyone seems to be obsessed with. With that being said, a few Brandy Melville pieces are worth getting because I feel like some of their basic tees just have a beautiful loose fit on the body and while I can easily get a basic tee from Forever 21 for a fraction of the price, it doesn’t have the same look to it.

In the end, I do enjoy my Brandy Melville clothing and I feel like they will always have some of my favorite basics. The quality is questionable but when picking some closet staples, I do find myself gravitating towards some of my basic shirts from Brandy.

Do you own any Brandy items? What are your thoughts?
