Remember when you were in high school and the entire freshman class wore polos adorned with that oh-so-iconic moose logo on them? Yes, I’m talking about those polos from Abercrombie & Fitch that you begged your parents to buy you because those shirts were the cool thing to wear. You’ve probably steered clear of this store like the plague, but I’ve got breaking news for you: Since the brand did a serious overhaul recently, it’s become my go-to spot for trendy clothes. And here’s the thing: when you catch a sale, you’ll get your new wardrobe for next to nothing.

For the past few years, I’ve religiously bought my high-waisted jeans here—they’ve got a ton of stretch and are super flattering. I also stock up on cozy knit sweaters for winter and ultra feminine wrap dresses for super hot summer weather. Basically, this store never disappoints me, and I want the entire world to get in on this secret news. Say goodbye to the ultra preppy store that made you cringe as a young adult (the potent perfume smell still remains, though)—Abercrombie & Fitch is now fit for the modern woman who loves quality clothing that also won’t break the bank.

Here are just a few items I’m crushing on for summer.

Wrap Skirt


Warmer weather means it’s time to pack on the gingham, and this adorable wrap skirt will do the trick. Available in six styles.

Cropped Wide Leg Pants


Tuck away your jeans for the fall and wear these lightweight pants that will quickly become your everyday staple.

Wrap Midi Dress


Quite possibly the most flattering dress around, this wrap dress is perfect for those summer days strolling along the beach.

Classic Backpack


Switch out your handbag for this more portable (and darling!) option when you’re on the go this season.

Lace Trim Cami


Throw on one of these silky camis instead of a tee to dress things up a bit. Pair with a midi skirt or jeans for a more casual look.
