…Did I just age myself? I guess LFO called it in 1999 that Abercrombie & Fitch wold make another comeback. If you don’t know who LFO is or have never heard the song, “Summer Girls,”then stop reading this for a second and click here.
Okay, back to the point. Back in early March, Abercrombie & Fitch was known as being the “next retailer to die” according to CNN. Scandal after scandal, this retailer lost my respect and the respect of many other teens, who are now heading to cheaper stores, like Forever21 and H&M. Little do these young-ins’ know…The cheaper the garment, the cheaper the quality. Fast fashion is convenient when exploring new trends, so I understand. No judgment.
Recently, my friend mentioned Abercrombie & Fitch and how their look seemed to have changed. I thought, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, okay.” But no, it really has! It may not appeal to the young teenager anymore, but it certainly has my twenty-something-year-old friends intrigued and consuming full shopping carts online.
If you haven’t already, glance at their Fall 2015 line. I know you will be shocked, surprised, and checking your bank account balance. This particular season is full of beautiful neutral color palettes and soft textures, perfect for the classic and conservative gal who likes to layer.
Turtlenecks and ponchos are back. Apparently, so are the 70’s and 90’s (like I said, LFO called this). Abercrombie & Fitch made a grand statement with this new season’s fall look by going back in time and modernizing. When worn correctly, these two trends can create a dynamic duo with a rustic and classy look.
