well that just doesn’t seem logical (unless using it for dancewear). hahaha.
i dunno whenever im looking at the AA site I’m never scouting around for a FULL OUTFIT, half the time i don’t even find the majority of their clothes appealing. its just the individual pieces i like every now and then.

I think it can be done right, if you wear their slim slack in a neutral color with one of the less ‘trendy’ type tops, for example the 3 button henley in army green with the black slim slack. Then accessorize from outside stores of course, but the bulk of the outfit is AA and doesn’t look totally 80’s. I can kind of agree though that the head to toe extremely colorful acid wash bright type stuff looks bad.

I’d have to agree with Holly, as half my closet is AA. Basics are what make all the “trends” out there half bearable most of the time! And, excuse me, dressing in head-to-toe American Apparel can be as simple as a t-shirt and jeans and as complicated as polkadot hotshorts, a thermochromatic tee, and a satin night jacket. AA is versitle, that’s what makes it so universal

When I first saw the AA website, I thought it was a store for rich prostitutes. I’ve warmed up to it a little, but I still find the pictures on the ads and website trashy and unattractive. The fit is always strange (too small / not proportional) and the material looks cheap and flimsy. Can’t see any head-to-toe AA looking anything besides desperate and overworked. Mass produced basics do not an outfit make. At least not any good ones.

I will have to agree with Holly and disagree with everyone else as well. I am also an American Apparel employee, and I have to wear head to toe American Apparel everyday as well. It’s like a fashion challenge every day, finding ways to put all these things together. I think when most people think of American Apparel, they think shiny gold leggings and flourescent t-shirts. But a lot of our stuff is simple enough to look high fashion without being expensive, and it can look classic and modern without being trendy. You just have to think outside the polka-dot, satin charmeuse, flourescent, thermochromatic, silver lamè box.

I also disagree. While I wouldn’t wear AA head to toe, I find no problem with buying simple pieces from there to incorporate with my outfit. No one who looked at me would notice that my skirt or top was from AA unless they knew the brand very well. The point of fashion is to find things that work and be inventive with them, pair them with a variety of things! There is nothing inherently wrong with American Apparel—just like there isn’t anything inherently wrong with any other brand people like to hate on. It’s all about how you choose to wear it.

american apparel is cool to use as basics. the v-neck shirts and hoodies are really cute, even though everyone has them. but when people wear like head to toe (and not for work, because for work you have to) to school or something, it’s just .. blech.

Construction on certain items is questionable. The only thing I ever buy nowadays is magazines. Thanks for the Purple Fashion, guys. No one else carries it and lord knows I ain’t ordering it.

i have a lot of AA stuff, like ten thousand t-shirts, a few skirts and leggings. But i always try to make my outfit a little less… AA look by pairing my basics with other items that would make the AA item seem more covert than anything. AA head to toe gives me a head ache.
