With a global presence and the softest cotton-blend basics, American Apparel has become a favorite of many moms for its easy, affordable separates. If you're looking to stock up your kids' back to school wardrobes with colorful, wearable tees, leggings, cardigans, and more, look no further.
Even better? While many garments at this price point are made in factories by underage, underpaid workers, American Apparel's employees are valued to the point of making up to more than 50 times their competition. They prioritize fair wages and fair work, making that bag full of American Apparel goodies a purchase you can feel good about.

Styling your printed pants might be easier than you might think, as exemplified by brunette beauty Jordana Brewster. The actress headed into the VH1 studios in NYC yesterday looking effortlessly polished in a pair of black-and-white floral trousers tempered with a black long-sleeved top — easy, right? It's all about balancing out a bold print with more neutral accompaniments, which Jordana shows here, but notice how she took her styling skills up a notch with a pair of pink printed ankle-strap pumps for an extra-sassy Spring touch. Finish off the look with a gray shoulder bag, and you're set for your next casual workday or relaxed evening outing.

Hollywood's hottest have been baring it all in a variety of swimwear this season, and recently we spotted Alessandra Ambrosio and Whitney Port channeling the same verdant wavelength as both starlets donned nature-inspired bikinis on the beach. Alessandra chose a colorful jungle print in Malibu, while Whitney kept it fresh in a lemon-print American Apparel bikini in Miami. With Summer in full swing, now is the time to step up your swim style, so shop our favorite nature-inspired bikinis to get in on the latest celeb-approved bikini trend.
During a friend's bachelorette party in Miami, Whitney Port hit the beach and showed off her bikini body in a lemon-print American Apparel bikini — here are the top ($29) and matching bottom ($29). What we love about Whitney's new bikini is that it has the traditionally sexy triangle cut that celebs love so much, but the green-and-yellow print makes it playful and fresh. If you haven't bought yourself a new bikini for Summer yet, consider adding Whitney's style to your mix. If the bottom is too tiny for you, you can even get the print in a high waist brief ($26) for a more retro feel. For some variety, mix and match by pairing the top with a solid bottom or vice versa.
Rihanna is no stranger to fashion-forward styles, but the singer really turned heads while shopping in NYC when she worked a soft pink American Apparel lace bandeau top ($18), a pink pleated Topshop skirt, black high-top Converse ($50), and a mini Céline tote. The midriff-baring starlet accessorized her ballet-meets-street style with oversized round Karen Walker shades ($250), a few necklaces, and diamond stud earrings, then layered on a two-tone sweatshirt. Style Rihanna's exact top, shoes, and shades with a flirty pleated skirt and laid-back hoodie to re-create this daring look.
