Abercrombie Summer Try-On

Abercrombie womens summer collection review

Over the past year or so, I've found myself gravitating more and more to none other than my late high-school mall favorite--Abercrombie. While my taste has toned down just as their use of their logo placed everywhere, it explains our affinity coming together. However, their lighting is still horrific.  From easy summer dresses to minimal basics, their collection this season has been one of my favorites. Not to mention, I found that they frequently have sales that are better online (which we can be thankful during a pandemic). Right before malls closed again in California, I was able to make a quick trip in store to see a few pieces in person and try-on. Honestly, it felt a little strange to be in store, so I only did a couple of pieces. For reference, I'm 5'4 and typically wear an XS or S. Oh, and good news--Abercrombie is currently doing 25% off sitewide + free shipping on $75 or more.

Abercrombie womens tie front mini dress

TIE-FRONT MINI DRESS $59 $44.25 // Size XS

While I didn't think much of this dress on the hanger, I'm glad I decided to try it on. It's very flattering with the neckline and cap sleeve, allowing for a bra with straps. Add in the pockets and I was sold! I actually ended up trying it in the black floral (didn't get pictures), but went with that option. It is a good length before becoming too short. If you do have a larger bust, you might have to go up a size. Otherwise, it's an easy dress to put on and pair with sandals, sneakers, or heels.

I guess I'm very into the tie-front detail, but this dress has been on my mind since I tried it on. With my wedding early next year, I keep reaching for all the white dresses. For all my small chested friends, this one is a must! There is an elastic back that helps with the fit. I would say those with a larger chest should size up. And again, how can you say no to pockets?! The cut and fit remind me so much of Reformation, but at a very budget-friendly price! There are two other color options that are just as great for summer, too. 

Abercrombie womens mesh bodysuit


I'll be the first to admit that bodysuits can be very unpractical, BUT the feeling I get from actually wearing one outweighs it all. This one in particular has that mesh detail for a nice update on a rather simple bodysuit. The fabric is a seamless stretch material, which makes it ideal to dress up or down.  Because the straps are not adjustable I would go with your normal size. For all you neutral lovers, it also comes in white and beige.

While I didn't want to try everything on, here are more pieces that I've picked up online or have been eyeing for weeks:
