The brand’s A-line skirts, crisp button-downs, tailored trousers and feminine separates are totally office appropriate—and we mean an office office, where you’d never dream of wearing shorts to work. We swear, everyone from corporate lawyers to fashion editors (ahem) to modern-day Mad Men and women are rocking AA. Case in point: my colleague Noelle Sciacca showed up at the office today wearing an adorable sleeveless lace American Apparel dress, made ever-so-work-friendly over a black slip and shrunken leather jacket. There are fine dresses, knee-length skirts, pretty blouses and more—at very friendly prices.

See Noelle’s look and other American Apparel office staples below and save the brand’s infamous pleather body suits and halter crop tops for happy hour.
