Dress Up Your Summer

We love the carefree, effortless feeling that summer brings – less responsibility, more fun! Summer is the time of year when plans can happen on the fly, and you need the quick, pretty #AEOSTYLE to match. One of our favorite ways to put together a spontaneous outfit is by slipping on a one-and-done piece like a dress or romper. This season offers one of our biggest dress assortments yet, so it’s the perfect time to check out everything from our shift dresses to rompers to maxi dresses. Plus, you’ll find styles to fit any look, like an edgy romper or a polished pattern maxi dress. Make it work with your individual #AEOSTYLE! Keep reading to see how AEO will dress up your summer.

Weekend Concert
Whether you’re visiting NYC, Austin or Chicago for one of the major music festivals or keeping it low-key and heading to a local concert, a flirty, boho romper is always a top choice. Festival outfitting is all about the accessories, so an understated romper with small details like the bow on the one-piece below will allow you to amp up your festival style. Layer on necklaces, rings and bracelets, and don’t forget a pair of sunglasses. Lately, we’re loving trendy round shape. Finish the look with a fringe bag that will hold your wallet, cell and, of course, a retro camera!

Brunch With Friends 
Kick off the summer season by grabbing your friends for amazing food. Summer menus are popping up at all of our favorite restaurants, and brunch is the best excuse to catch up with friends while eating some mind-blowing waffles. Since brunch is usually relaxed, you’ll want a soft, feminine look to match. Pair a floral maxi dress with a wide-brim straw hat for a vacation-vibe. A faux-leather handbag in a neutral color will hold all of the necessities, like cat-eye sunglasses and lip balm.

Dress Up Your Summer! This look is perfect for weekend brunch with your BFFs.

Flea Market Browsing
Refresh your #AEOSTYLE and your interior design! Head to a local flea market to find a hidden gem. A casual, free-spirited look is great for wandering around outside. Be sure to take a light jacket that you can carry on your shoulder or pop on if it gets chilly in the morning. A comfortable pair of fun, patterned shoes adds interest to finish the look. Don’t forget a carry-all bag!

Hang at the Park
If you want to have a chill day but still take advantage of beautiful summer weather (and, let’s be real, show off this adorable look), plan a day at the park. Take a blanket, snacks and light reading material to carry you through the afternoon. This floral romper is vibrant and sweet, and the shorts silhouette will allow you to move around all day with ease. We’re all about the cold-shoulder lately, so feel free to work on that summer tan! Pull on a pair of bright white sneakers to complete the look.

Dress Up Your Summer! Grab some reading material and head to the park for a relaxing day.
