As Seen In #AEOSTYLE: Fashion Trend Recap

This week was big for #AEOSTYLE… we’re on the cover of Women’s Health with actress & health guru Cameron Diaz! We’re so excited to bring you two full AEO looks on two separate Women’s Health covers, so make sure you pick up your copy for the full scoop. Check out all of the #AEOSTYLE we spotted this week, from indigo plaids to destructed Tomgirl jeans, and hover over the image below for links to every product!

Rock the button down shirt this Spring! If you’re looking to add some denim into your outfit without wearing jeans, might we recommend the Western Denim Shirt or Denim Boyfriend Shirt? Our array of light and dark denim button downs are perfect paired with any of our Twill X midi shorts, skirts or even as a layering piece over a floral dress. Add some color and pattern to your look with our Plaid Boyfriend Shirt if that’s more your style!

Another trend we saw everywhere this week was lace detailing. Our Lace Bell Sleeve Top has just the right amount of boho flair. Or, show a little more skin in our Don’t Ask Why Cold Shoulder Top! You’ll be spotting cutout shoulder silhouettes everywhere this summer, so get ahead of the curve now. For a cozier look that still has all the #AEOSTYLE you want, pair the AEO Crop Hoodie with you our Denim Shortie or Tomgirl Jean! Extra points if your denim is slashed and patched. Another item we’re excited about this season? The Denim X Jegging Crop! Definitely add them to your favorites list in one of our bright color options, or stick with a classic white jean. Top it all off with a straw hat or one of our other wide brim hats.

#AEOSTYLE Roundup: #AEOSHORTSCONTEST Inspiration

We’re getting close to the end of the #AEOSHORTSCONTEST, so you only have a few days left to enter for a chance to win a $500 gift card or an amazing trip to Big Sur! We’ve already showed you all of our best tips & tricks to photograph like a pro (you’ll definitely want to check out that post!), so we looked to our AEO Style Ambassadors for some Instagram-worthy photo inspiration. Check out all of their looks below, and shop their shorts by hovering over the images!

Show The Details: Instead of a full body image, @saraannowen zoomed in on the details of her look, focusing on the shorts. This is a great way to show us your personal #AEOSTYLE!

Keep It Simple: Sometimes, less is more. @michelle_orsi proves that a photo doesn’t have to be crowded to be striking. We love the way she showcased her denim shorts in this close-up.

Play With Hand Placement: Draw the eye to the main focus of your photo with hand placement like @krystintysire did here. Our eyes go right to her denim shorts! You could even use this to show off back pockets too.

Use Fun Photo Effects: @thetravelinghummingbird totally grabbed our attention with this cool mirrored effect. Use the technology you have at your fingertips!

Look Away From The Camera: It’s not that we don’t heart your face … this is just a really flattering angle! @jarrettperez has mastered the look-away shot.

Take Advantage Of Nature: @whatcourtwore knows that a background can make or break your pic. Get outside & use the beauty of your surroundings!

Use Props: @ktnewms is a props queen. Add some unexpected textures and layers to your typical outfit laydown or details shot by using props like coffee, notebooks & jewelry.

Show us how you style your AEO Shorts on Instagram using #AEOSTYLE for a chance to be featured in our Style Gallery and #AEOSHORTSCONTEST to enter the contest. Let us know what your favorite shorts fit is in the comments below!
