Have you noticed? We’re just a teensy bit excited about the newest brand to join the Republic family. And when we say ‘a teensy bit’ we actually mean MAJORLY.
Yep, American Apparel has landed and we’ve spent the last few days creating a serious shopping list of our faves. The collection is all about that laidback LA style, mixing simple basics with bright colours and luxe fabrics – j’adore! Here are our top picks…
This sky blue sweater is perfect for cool summer evenings – the lightweight fabric is great for throwing on over a t-shirt and the loose, relaxed fit will add a casual edge to any outfit.
Wear it with… skinny jeans, heels and a headscarf for a retro-inspired look.

You can’t beat a classic cardigan and this fitted version is the business. In bright red or subtle navy, they’re great for the cool, rainy summer we’re sure to get!
Wear it with… a smart shirt in a contrasting colour, skinny tie and dark denims.

Wear it with… cut off denims, battered sneakers and a hoody – who says you have to save it for the gym?
Basics are what American Apparel does best – this simple gray vest can be worn under shirts, with denim, on the beach, at the gym… it’s a total multi-tasker!
