There are a lot of things I love about this job, but my favorite has to be the opportunity to test out some of the clothes I write about. While I love being descriptive in my stories, there’s nothing like trying pieces on and actually showing them to you. So I grabbed a few editors and fashion insiders to take one of my favorite brands, AG, for a spin and show you the pieces we’re wearing this season. While AG is known for its incredible denim, it also carries ridiculously cute dresses (everything from simple slips to denim minis), matching sets (prepare to say hello to your new favorite cargos), and staple tanks you can wear with basically everything you own. We can’t shut up about these looks, and you probably won’t be able to, either.
“L.A. is such a casual city, so these pieces are what I’m gravitating toward on a daily basis whenever I’m running around the city, meeting friends, or going to lunch. I love that both the shorts and tank top can be worn so many ways together or separately. They are truly summer staples that I’ll reach for over and over again. I kept everything super clean and minimal here and just decided to add black accessories to elevate the outfit and make it feel chic and sophisticated but still casual.”
“This coordinating cargo set is the perfect outfit for a casual summer outing. I’m a homebody for most of the year, but during summer, I try to be out and about as much as possible. The pieces are light and airy, which is a must for the heat. Not all cargos have that elevated look that this pair has, which is why I really love them. I styled them as a set for this look, but they can just as easily be worn on their own.”
“If there’s one thing I’ll turn to without fail each summer, it’s a good midi dress. When it’s hot out, I want to wear as little clothing as possible, and a breezy dress is usually at the top of my list. This one is made from insanely soft ribbed material, is as stretchy as can be, and falls at the perfect length. (I’m 5’9”, for reference.) I wore this to lunch with friends and kept it pretty low-key with sandals and this denim AG jacket (you never know when you’re going to end up in the shade), but I definitely will be dressing it up, too. Maybe a little blazer or some heels? Only time will tell.”
A denim dress? Yes, please.
A plain white tee is a year-round essential. I’ll be tucking this one into my favorite shorts, jeans, and skirts.
I love the Y2K vibe of these jeans, so the utility pockets are a yes for me.
There’s something about this burnt-orange color.
Want to make your outfit look that much cooler? I just found the perfect jacket to do so.
