Review – American Apparel Collection

Parenting a teenage girl can get tough, it can be difficult affording all the clothing they feel they need. This is also the age where they discover name brands.  American Apparel has always been a brand that my daughter considered top of the line, but many of her peers didn’t think so. They saw the brand’s models and did not like how they were styled.  Once she started reviewing for American Apparel her friends opinion changed because they discovered that the clothing they were constantly asking where she bought was from American Apparel. She’s shown that AP’s brand allows you to make your own style, unique to your personality and to never underestimate a piece of clothing from them. Now we are seeing that her peers are shopping AP more and more.

Here’s some examples of how she has used American Apparel clothing to build her wardrobe, creating a new trend within her peer groups. Hopefully it helps you see that the brand has a lot of diversity.

I think these might be her favorite jeans because she wears them most often even though she has several pairs of American Apparel brand jeans. I like that they are 4 ways stretch. I do think these jeans run smaller as these are a size small and my young teen can fit into them. As you can see she is not even that large so I don’t even want to think what a size XS or XXS would look like.

About the fabric:
Our Natural Denim is a heavy-weight denim, but still soft to the touch, with a bit of stretch for added comfort.
American Apparel is American made company and they do not outsource their factories. All construction is done inside the United States. The quality of these items is really good, they are made to last a long time. I can definitely see these American Apparels items years from now holding up perfectly.
