Abercrombie & Fitch generally runs pretty small, especially when you find items that say “shrunken fit” in the description. I’ve had good luck with sweaters (cashmere!) and tank tops in size XS, but there is of course the problem of it being Abercrombie & Fitch…known for catering to pretentious teenagers and the home of tacky moose embroidery.
With that being said, there is some hope for tiny petites looking for small sized clothing, as it appears Abercrombie has begun branching out of their usual boring styles in bland cotton, and have finally started adding some interesting stuff. I’ve found a few items in silk, and a collection of great watercolor printed items that look summery, without looking childish. And…no giant tacky moose in sight! Yay!
I love this top. It’s 100% silk, and has a great red, navy and gray flower pattern that I think would look great with a pair of jeans, or under a sweater with a pair of gray slacks for work. I love adding silks to my wardrobe. And the cut is simple enough that if you need to get it taken in a bit, it would be an easy tailoring job. AND…no moose embroidery!
This skirt is 30% silk, 70% cotton, and again with the nice floral pattern. Too short for the office, but a nice casual weekend skirt. This one has moose embroidery, but it’s pretty small and blends into the pattern, so it’s easy to hide.
This skirt is 100% cotton, but is a really cool watercolor flower pattern, that would go with so many differently colored tops and shoes.
And check out their clearance section (my favorite part of their website!) I love this top, even though it’s polyester (yuck!), I might forgive the fabric choice and pick it up if the price is right. I imagine this one unbuttoned like a jacket, with a pair of jeans, a fun colored camisole (my preference is red!) and a long silver or gold necklace.
