L.A.-based hipster brand American Apparel is not for the faint of taste. Depending on the season you can find barely there gold bathing suits or a skirt that looks like it was made out of a space-age fabric. The selection of gloves, scarves and T-shirts in a groovy array of colors are the first thing that greets shoppers at this trendy Newbury Street clothing store. Splashes of color and texture in the form of skirts, sweaters and pants are complemented by accessories such as nail polish, umbrellas and backpacks. Small and extra small sizes are plentiful here, which can be frustrating for folks sized M or L. Don't forget to check out the fun lingerie department in the back of the store. American Apparel is sweatshop free, supports fair trade wages, and everything in the store in made in the USA.
