One of the best things about fashion is the concept of dressing how best expresses yourself, and the person that you are. Many of us are into pop culture – whether that be movies, TV shows or even music! However, the idea of wearing clothes that represent your interests can appear daunting to some. There is always that fear of looking too ‘extra’ or attracting unwanted attention to yourself. Also, there is the worry that clothes which show off your favourite Netflix show or latest Blockbuster movie just simply aren’t cute enough to wear on a daily basis. Well, fear not! As someone who has been wearing pop culture apparel for quite some time, I have compiled a list of the top three places to shop online where the clothes are cute and show off your interests at the same time.
- Soft Kitty Clothing – https://softkittyclothing.com/
This is a website that you may not have heard of before, but I highly recommend that you check out. This place stocks clothes covering all kinds of pop culture, from Star Wars to Pokémon – so I’m sure you can find something that suits you. What I like about Soft Kitty Clothing is that the clothes can appeal to everyone, a lot of their clothes are quite extravagant and flamboyant where as many of their other pieces are fairly subtle. This way the website caters for all types of pop culture loves who want to show their appreciation. As a bonus, Soft Kitty also stock home ware and accessories for those of you who want to decorate your home like a true pop culture devotee!
- EMP – https://www.emp.co.uk/
EMP is a much bigger site than the first on my list, in terms of popularity as well as stock. I’d be quite surprised if you haven’t heard of it! EMP stock everything, from music related clothes to film and TV related clothes to gaming related apparel! With such a wide variety of themes, this website easily makes the list. There truly is something for everyone in the sense of the actual type of pop culture you wish to sport. If there is a show or kawaii icon that is quite obscure then EMP most likely has it! The pricing is also very reasonable considering it’s shipped over to the UK, which is always an added bonus. They also have exclusive clothes and accessories that are only available to them; therefore you can find unique buys that none of your friends will have!
- Truffle Shuffle – https://www.truffleshuffle.co.uk/
I’ve been browsing the Truffle Shuffle website since I was in my teens, and has been a firm favourite of mine for a long time. This one will be most popular with those looking for subtle yet cute pop culture apparel, as these clothes have more of a gentle vintage feel to them. They cover all sorts of pop culture, such as TV, movies, iconic brands and even fairy tales! If you know someone who loves a show and you want to purchase them a present but scared it might not be up their street? Truffle Shuffle is your answer. The only downside to this website is that it is higher priced than the other two, however the quality of these clothes is excellent and you do get your money’s worth for what you purchase.
There you have it, my top three picks for perfecting your pop culture style. If you’re looking for extravagant, you have Soft Kitty Clothing, if you’re looking for variety then visit EMP and if you’re looking for simplicity, Truffle Shuffle is the place to go. Between the three of these stores, I’m confident there will be items which are perfect for you!
