Known for its super-soft jersey cotton knitwear and boundary-pushing billboards, American Apparel reinterprets casual basics in more colors than Crayola’s got crayons. Founded in 1989 by Canadian entrepreneur Dov Charney, the company made its name by marketing its plain T-shirts and sweats in provocative ads shot by store employees, friends, and even Charney himself. Over the years the label’s product line has expanded to include hoodies, leggings, backpacks, headbands, leather goods, and kidswear. Comfy, classic and a little controversial, American Apparel clothing meets all your daily wardrobe needs.
The Ultimate Dress Shop: Little White DressesNow's the time to send your LBD on vacation and embrace the just-as-versatile warm-weather version: The Little White Dress. Whether you opt for crisp cotton or soft, feminine lace, this seasonal staple will carry you through just about any occasion the outdoor season brings (and no, you don't have to wait until after Memorial Day to wear it!). Take it to a polished, sophisticated place with a tailored blazer and heels, or get into the music festival groove by adding a boho twist. And as late spring days stretch into lovely, long summer ones, the only accessory you'll need is glowing skin.
