STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Statements Done Simply

Brandy Melville is taking over the one-size fits all generation. Although one-size does not fit everyone, the image that Brandy Melville started 15 years ago has spread to create the norm for my generation. They have their simple style that focuses on sweatshirts and shorts that are oversized and flatter a slim body build. Each season I see Brandy Melville add a larger variety of patterns and textures. Whenever I’m near a Brandy Melville store, I spot Fashionistas sporting their own twists and turns on Brandy Melville’s bohemian vibe.

While roaming Soho one afternoon, I spotted this tie-dyed Fashionista reading a book on a stoop. After talking, I discovered that she was on her break from working at Brandy Melville. Adding fun to her work wardrobe, this Fashionista picked out a little ghost sticker to sport around the shop all day. I find that the sticker is a little reminder to always have fun with what you’re wearing each day.

How should you spruce up your simple pieces? Look at this Fashionista for a few inspirational tricks. Pairing her tie-dyed cutoff tank top, she wore a flattering pastel bra that added a simple but different texture. Her trick for spicing up black leggings was picking a texturized pair. To finish off her simple edgy look, this Fashionista picked a choker and a pair of black Birkenstock style sandals. This mixture of simple pieces complements the funky gray black tie-dye statement tank top.
