Your Brat Summer essentials

It's a BRAT summer – and you need to look the part.


If last summer was all about Barbie pink, this year’s hue du jour is something a little… snottier. Thanks to Charli XCX‘s exceptional album ‘BRAT‘ capturing the zeitgeist and creating a cultural moment, expect to see cool kids everywhere donning a little pop of lime to state, in no uncertain terms, “I ride with you Charli”. Whether you’re prepping your Glastonbury wardrobe (see you at Levels for the Partygirl set) or just anticipating a summer of Brat-packed hedonism, here are some of our favourite BRAT-themed buys from around the web. So grab your besties, and be prepared to see where the night takes you.
