It’s time to stop sleeping on Abercrombie. The brand has evolved far beyond the polo shirts and logo tees of yesteryear to offer a wealth of sophisticated, understated and stylish pieces, you’d be wise to induct into your wardrobe. Case in point? The brand’s spring line, because if there’s one thing the brand understands, it’s the importance of a solid spring wardrobe.
A season touted as one of fresh starts and new beginnings, we rely heavily on our clothes to help initiate this feeling, their transformative powers becoming all the more apparent in spring as we employ them to not only make us look good but feel good. Recognizing this, and taking into account the new parameters by which many of us get dressed, Abercrombie’s spring collection is wearable and accessible, simultaneously taking notes of trends without adhering too strictly to them.
The result is a collection of spring staples, from linen-blend camp collar shirts to casual shorts, offered in their simplest form or with slight twists, like a lemon pattern. Alongside these pieces are vintage-inspired band tees and 90s silhouettes that offer the right dose of nostalgia while still proving to be timeless styles that will remain in your closet beyond this spring. And, because comfort continues to reign important when it comes to getting dressed, the line isn’t without its fair share of casual, comfortable pieces, largely by way of their softAF collection but also in the form of easy pull-on linen-blend shorts and oversized acid wash tees.
In order to help you achieve the best and most cohesive spring wardrobe, capable of working for a variety of occasions we’ve partnered with Abercrombie to bring you our 19 picks from the brand’s spring line, with our seven favorites (a difficult task) highlighted below.
Cotton-Silk Johnny Collar Knit Polo
Channel your inner Don Draper with this retro-inspired knit polo, crafted from a cotton-silk blend that’s as luxurious as it is soft. The easy silhouette makes pairing the polo with everything from jeans to shorts, immediately lending them a more dressed-up feel without you having to do any of the work.
90s Oversized Hoodie
This hoodie checks off all the marks: soft, oversized and inspired by one of our favorite decades, the 90s. Just a warning: once you go oversized, you never go back.
Stretch Linen Pull-On Shorts
If you can’t bring yourself to pair on yet another pair of sweat shorts out of self loathing, these pull-on shorts crafted from a linen-blend offer the same comfort and easy as your most beloved pair of sweatpants in a silhouette that you won’t be ashamed to let see the light of day. We’re partially to this subtly pintstriped grey pair for when you feel like adding a touch of business to your casualwear.
Linen-Blend Camp Collar Button-Up Shirt
We’re a sucker for anything with a camp collar, especially when it’s attached to a handsome linen-blend shirt in a vibrant hue of yellow that’ll give even the sun some stiff competition.
90s Oversized Stretch Denim Jacket
Everyone knows a denim jacket is a wardrobe staple, so make sure the next one you add to your wardrobe is this 90s Oversized Stretch Denim Jacket, outfitted with dropped shoulders to achieve that artfully slouchy look and a touch of stretch so pairing things underneath won’t be a struggle.
The A&F Saturday Short
We don’t expect you to eradicate loungewear completely from your life, but you can step it up a bit via these Saturday Shorts from the brand’s 96 Hour Collection. As the name suggests, these are your go-to pair of weekend shorts, made from a water-repellant stretch fabric that’s equipped to take you from brunch to the beach and everything in between.
Oversized Acid Wash Crew Tee
Don’t fear acid wash — embrace it, particularly with this oversized tee. The acid wash pattern is just subtle enough to come across without screaming acid-wash, ideal for when you want to stand out among the hordes of plain, regular (and quite frankly boring) crewneck tees.
