American Apparel: Stylish, Fashionable, & American Made Clothing for the Entire Family!
Dressing my children in comfortable, yet stylish clothing is one of my favorite jobs as a mom. Years ago, I used to purchase overly frilly, and probably uncomfortable outfits for my first child. I wanted her to look like a little princess, but as the years passed I realized comfort was key with little ones. Fashionable, cotton clothing in bright, modern prints and styles is now what I seek for my three little ones. That’s why I was so excited when I had the opportunity to work American Apparel; a brand that carries styles for the entire family-even your dog!
I admit, I love to dress my girls in the same outfits because at their ages it looks cute. I figure I only have a few years left to dress them like “twins” so I often purchase similar dresses, shirts, and pants sets. American Apparel allowed us to choose a few clothing staples for the entire family which was extremely generous.
Check out what I received:
- Kids Baby Rib Skater Tank Dress (asphalt) in sizes 4, 6 girls
- Kids Striped Fleece Zip Hoodie (natural heather gray and red stripe) 2 years
- Navy Flex Fleece Sip Dog Hoodie (navy) medium
- Cotton Pique Tennis Shirt (Lieutenant) large
- Denim Short Sleeve Button-Up with Pocket (Light Wash Indigo) large
Everything I received from American Apparel was neatly packaged, and ready for wearing. I couldn’t wait to try theKids Rib Skater Tank Dresses on my daughters. The material they were made of was very soft, and comfortable. There was no itchy tags, or tight fitting zippers. Best of all, my girls looked adorable, fashionable and at ease. I really loved this particular dress style because it can be paired up with a variety of brightly colored belts, shoes, and hair accessories that can really make it pop! The sizing ran a bit smaller than normal so I recommend air drying these dresses to avoid additional shrinkage.
The Navy Flex Fleece Sip Dog Hoodie was just too cute! We recently adopted a small dog that is the perfect size to dress up in clothing. I love how American Apparel has so many dog hoodies to choose from! I found the dog hoodie to be made of the very same soft cotton that you can expect from American Apparel sweatshirts, and hoodies. The sizing again was much more fitted than most brands so if you are in doubt I’d go that extra size up.
My husband is a professional who always has to look clean, and sharp at work. While the environment is pretty casual he tries his hardest to stay stylish. Button up shirts, and collared polos are his go to staples so it was awesome to see that American Apparel has several great styles to choose from.
Both the Cotton Pique Tennis Shirt, and the Denim Short Sleeve Button Up fit my husband;s style perfectly. He found both shirts to look great tucked in with a belt, and to feel very comfortable. Some button ups, and polos are very itchy, but these were very soft, and moved with his body. He received several compliments at work from several male colleagues so that is always a plus! These styles look great with jeans, shorts, tucked it, or out.
Overall, I am very pleased with the clothing in which I received from American Apparel. I think their clothing is well made, and I support a company that keep their operations in America. I don’t think their prices are ridiculous, and love visiting their stores to see the latest trends in fashion.
