Yep, I’m your typical millennial who was absolutely obsessed with Abercombie in the early 2000s. We were a dime a dozen back then. (But no, I will not reveal my embarrassing AIM screenname homage to the brand.) Nowadays, A&F is back in the good graces of Gen Z thanks to TikTok, but they’re far from the only ones appreciating the brand’s revival.
Fashion industry veteran Gym Tan (AKA @californiaistoocasual) recently posted a video of herself wearing Abercrombie’s Dropped Waist Corset Midi Dress ($88), crediting a TikToker in her 20s as inspiration. 61-year-old Tan, who has experience in the industry on both the creative and commercial sides, just proved once and for all that age is nothing but a number. It makes sense that Abercrombie has been able to widen its customer base after extricating itself from the logo hoodies, polo shirts, and graphic tees of yore. Scroll down to see how she styled it, view her viral TikTok, and shop it for yourself.
