Re Living My Teenage Trend….. and it feels so good.

I think anyone reading this (because I know my readers) can relate to wearing an Abercrombie & Fitch hoodie? I used to get one every Christmas for probably five years running, as well as it being my number gift for a boyfriend; that famous Abercrombie tracksuit. We wore them because they were the trend and let’s not forget that super soft lining, the quality was amazing. Ten years on I have fallen in love with the brand all over again. Really I should have never left them because the best thing about them is the quality of their pieces; the quality is always on point. I almost didn’t realise Abercrombie & Fitch has expanding their collections out of tracksuits and denim shorts.

Recently I travel to Greece on a press trip. One of the bloggers, Sabrina had a beautiful off the shoulder top that caught my eye. I tried it on and it felt so soft so I asked her where she bought it. Sabrina replied Abercrombie. I replied what Fitch? She said Yes. I didn’t believe her and had to take a look at the label. I seriously didn’t know Abercrombie & Fitch made bohemian inspired pieces like this. As soon as I got home I stalked the website. The denim is still killer denim, just scroll down to the jean images and you will see how bootie flattering they are. We can still turn to them for the hoodies, the denim and the essentials tees and shirts but there is also so much more. The vibe is really boho but at the same time totally city chic and wearable for other places other than the beach….. aka perfect boho wear. The quality is Abercrombie & Fitch’s best factor. Everything I am wearing in this article fitted me so well, everything was super soft and felt so nice to wear. There are so many pieces I still have my eye on so I have listed a few bits here:

DRESS’S

TOP’S

DENIM

ACCESSORIES

The first piece I chose was a beautiful white dress. It took me two days swapping my cart around because I was torn between the white and the blue. The only reason I went for the white is because, well have you seen my Instagram feed recently? It is full of baby blue dresses. The detail on this dress is impressive. I adore the button back the most. The lace panels, particularly on the arm are really flattering and add a romantic element. I had so many compliments when I wore this dress. Finding amazing classic pieces is harder then you think. A good white dress is really easy to style. I styled this with chunky biker boots that I can’t get enough of right now but I kept the look pretty simple. The only accessory I wore was the handkerchief. Handkerchief’s are great for wrapping around your bag, hanging from your jeans or wrapping around your neck or arm. For the price (under £20) they are so wearable. This dress also comes in blue, black and burgundy.

The second look was a causal double denim look. I wanted to make sure I ordered at least a couple of denim pieces because I know how good Abercrombie & Fitch’s denim is. The top was way better in real life. It was a super soft light weight cotton denim. The description said “chambray” but it was so much softer; more silky than a line texture. I can’t wait to wear this with white denim shorts or a letter skirt. It was really cosy to wear, I was really impressed with this top.

Okay lets talk about these jeans, we need to discuss the bootie factor. 

These jeans were really soft. One good thing. I tried them on and they were so comfy; stretchy but tight. Second good thing. I never ever buy high waisted jeans because I don’t have much of a waist, which means they are too uncomfortable. I really love the “high waisted look” so I didn’t give up trying to find that perfect pair. These are that perfect pair and now I need them in dark denim and black. They were really tight but because they are so stretchy they were really comfortable around my waist. I know there are plenty of you who have perfect waist lines and can not related to my issue but for all your girls that don’t have a small waist line; these jeans are the one for you! I have found high waisted comfy jeans. Thank me when you wear yours on social media 🙂 The last thing we need to talk about is the bootie. The shape around my bottom is the best it’s ever looked, it some how sucked and lifted. My friend was watching me shoot these photos and she kept saying “Claire why don’t you wear skinny jeans, they look so great. I just can’t believe your bum” This is the total truth. I really hope this lasts (I will keep you updated) and they don’t change shape.

The final look was the same pair of bootie jeans but I changed accessories and tops. I love to mix and match my clothes and wear day to night looks. I wanted to create a look that didn’t involve too many pieces.

I usually stay away from crop tops but I knew it would be okay with my new high waisted jeans. I love red and I love off the shoulder red tops. This top also reminded me of the Gucci Dionysus flower bag? Do you know which one I mean?

I would wear this top with denim shorts or leather trousers. The quality is really good and it feels really soft. I have already washed this top and it has washed really well. Gosh I sound like my mum.

If you scroll to the top of this article you can have a little look at all the other tops I loved.

Which look was your favourite?

I am so happy to feel excited about a brand I grew up with. I am even more excited that the fit was perfect and the quality was on point. The good quality explains why the pieces all fit me perfectly.

I also recommend shopping for your man. I feel like when it comes to women’s clothes we can get away with wearing cheaper clothes sometimes but with men they can’t. Men need good quality and a good fit. I always shop for my husband, Paris. I swear he is colour blind and when he does try and shop for himself it never ends well for anyone. I have picked a few of my top picks for men.

Love this post Claire. Abercrombie and Fitch is probably the last place I’d go to when looking for a white lace dress but that one is absolutely beautiful, I’ll definitely need to have a look on the website.

I never knew Abercrombie done clothes like this! I literally thought it was jumpers and joggers from what I see other people wear. Defaintly going to find myself that denim top, great post Chouqette. Also when are you making another YouTube video? I’m obsessed.

I love your blog, Claire. It’s so refreshing to see a brand we all grew up with, change and evolve to something we can wear as ‘grown adults’! Love all of the looks, my favourite is that white dress.. oh and that off the shoulder top!
