Question from Anne and Ruthie: “We have the AG Gardening Outfit from 2002. It consists of a linen top, open at the back, and a pair of purple linen capris, but we don’t know how else to wear it! The whole set feels dated to us…nobody likes to look 90s unless it’s *very* intentional, am-i-right? We were thinking maybe the top over Saige’s jeggings and sandals, but wondered if you had other ideas. Bless!”
I used to adore this outfit when I was younger, but it has not yet made it into my wardrobe (though after playing around with the possibilities, I’m keeping my eye out for it once again!). I used a virtual outfit creating website (Polyvore) to come up with some outfits. There are mostly doll sized pieces, and I filled in the gaps with girl-sized basics that can easily be translated into things your doll may have in her wardrobe.
Casual Cutie: Try pairing the pants from the outfit with a cute tee and colorful accessory! Here the bright pink scarf makes the outfit extra stylish, but still easy and fun for a day running around with friends.
Boho Chic: The peplum look is actually quite popular right now, so this top translates well into a modern outfit! This long floral skirt from Etsy is a great choice not only because of how well the colors complement each other, but because the fit-and-flare cut works well with the peplum-style ruffle so that there isn’t too much poof at the waist (such as with a gathered skirt).

Shoes: AG Saige’s Sweater Outfit
Hat: AG Seaside Tote Set
Vacation ready: I thought the hat from the Gardening outfit actually worked quite well for this touristy look! A fitted sleeveless top balances the loose-fitting pants, and the red adds a more bright and modern contrast to the pastel pants.
Top: The Glam Doll on Etsy
Shoes: AG Pretty Party
Bag: AG Saige’s Accessories
Lookin’ Smart: I just love the new striped blazer from AG, and I think it looks super stylish paired with this top! Try it with a blazer and some leggings or slim fitting jeans and a pair of glasses, and you have the perfect look for back-to-school!
Blazer: AG Bright Stripes
Leggings: AG Tropical Bloom

I hope this helps give you some ideas!
