Glee Fashion: American Apparel

Glee’s costume designers are well-known for creating unique looks for each character and shopping at specific stores when creating the perfect gleeky look. One of their favorite places to shop is American Apparel, which has been featured on many different episodes and characters. Read on for information about some of my favorite American Apparel pieces that our favorite New Directions members have been sporting, as well as how to get your own!


aa board shorts

While posing for the Men of McKinley Calendar in the ‘Naked’ episode, Sam wore the Polyester Micro-Fiber Board Shorts in red. Although Sam used these for creating his own version of Magic Mike, these shorts are perfect for a day at the beach or lounging by the pool. Best of all, the shorts come in a variety of colors so you create your own special look and match with any of your favorite shirts!

In the same episode, Sam is also seen wearing the California Sleeveless Zip Hoodie in black while he and the New Directions’ boys perform their ‘Hot In Herre/Centerfold’ mash-up. The sleeveless hoodie is also a favorite of Mike Chang, who has worn this while teaching dance moves to his fellow glee clubbers. I love the versatility of the sleeveless zip hoodie because you can pair it with any shirt and create something really neat. It’s also the perfect thing to wear while you work out!


aa blaine shirt

No one can forget that iconic moment of Glee’s fourth season premiere when Blaine, after encouraging Kurt to move to New York and follow his dreams, performed It’s Time in the perfect send-off. To make it even better Blaine performed in style, wearing the Plaid Short-Sleeve Button Down in Navy/Purple Window Check. Shirts like these are a true style staple because their versatility allows them to be paired with almost anything, whether that be a vest, cardigan, or jacket.


aa beret

Our favorite diva, Rachel Berry, is also a big fan of American Apparel. Throughout the seasons Miss Berry has sported the American Apparel Unisex Wool Beret in white, navy and black. Much like all American Apparel clothes, they can be mix and matched with whatever you have on — making it perfect for our lead heroine’s ever-changing wardrobe!

Stay tuned for more Glee fashion posts and keep your eyes peeled for more American Apparel clothing and accesories on Glee!


Glee Fashion: High Cotton Bow Ties and Headbands

Both Blaine and Rachel are well known for their preppy and vintage inspired styles, as well as their unique accessories they use to complete each outfit. Rachel’s signature accessory (until recently) was her trusted headband, while Blaine’s has always been a bow tie.

If you’ve ever wanted to steal the style of Mr. Anderson or Ms. Berry, you’re in luck: you can purchase the same headbands and bow ties seen on Glee from High Cotton Ties! High Cotton Ties is a popular maker of ties, headbands, and more based out of North Carolina, giving their products the perfect Southern charm.

Each tie and headband is handmade and the company is committed to providing excellent quality and service to each customer. In addition, each product is washable so you never have to worry about any messes or spills! There are so many patterns and prints to choose from you’ll have difficulty picking just one of these fabulous bow ties and headbands!

High Cotton Ties prides itself on being fit with Southern style and no truer words have ever been spoken. Every part of High Cotton reflects the class, style, and charm of the company — right down to the box the bow ties are packaged in!





Take a look at two of the bow ties Blaine has worn, the Darden Woolie and the Davidson Houndstooth:

Glee Cosplay

Cosplay is a slang term meaning “costume play”, where fans of various television shows/movies/etc. dress up as their favorite characters. Of course, many people take on portraying all their favorite Glee characters. With Comic-Con this past weekend, now is the perfect time to take a look at photos of various Glee cosplayers from around the world.
