1. LAZY OAF
For anyone who loves cats and the colour pink, Lazy Oaf is the store for you. Featuring cute embroidery and interesting textures, Lazy Oaf’s latest collection ‘Esther Loves Oaf’ in collaboration with international artist Esther Kim, is something special. One of my favourite pieces from the collection is the Heart Popper Sweatshirt. The baby pink velour sports style sweatshirt is complete with a mock neck, heart shaped zipper and to top it all of, an embroidered bunny.
UNIF is the perfect combination of girly yet skater boy. With a wide variety of patterns and designs, you are bound to find something you love. A couple of my current favourites from UNIF are the Apex Overalls, Timmy Jeans, Moss Top and the Baby Cherry Top. UNIF does tend to be more expensive but the company is family run and the items aren’t mass produced so I guess that makes up for the price. Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself when I spend way too much money on a single pair of checkerboard printed overalls.
3. MAGIC HOLLOW
Magic Hollow is the perfect store if you’re after some sick vintage goodies. Every Wednesday at 5pm new items including Tommy Hilfiger, Levi’s, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, are added to the store. I recently made my first purchase, a pair of vintage Levi’s boyfriend jeans and they have quickly become an essential item in my closet. If you’re in need of a denim jacket, high waisted jeans or some groovy t-shirts I definitely recommend checking out Magic Hollow!
4. GOLF WANG
Golf Wang features clothing designed by Tyler, the Creator. With endless designs of t-shirts, it’s super easy to fill up your cart. Along with the affordable tees, there are also some special pieces including varieties of pants, baseball jackets, and even sweatsuits. The key to Golf Wang is to regularly check the site to see if new items have been uploaded. Currently, the store is stocked with basics (tees, crewnecks, and socks) but slowly items are being restocked.
The Ragged Priest is the ultimate store for all things denim. If you’re looking for a pair of high waisted jeans or a denim jacket with a bit of spunk, you’re looking in the right place. They stock a variety of denim pieces using different colours, embroidery, and materials. One of my favourite pieces from The Ragged Priest is the Blaze Mom Jean. These charcoal mom jeans feature a flame embroidery sitting just above the knee cut outs. Alongside all of the denim pieces, The Ragged Priest also stocks a variety of clothes that follow the same unique style as the denim range.
