What Inspired Janelle’s Look:
“I’ve always been attracted to relaxed, bohemian looks and boyfriend jeans are a big part of that. Let’s just say I have quite a collection of them. Living in Manhattan means I also like to add a touch of edge to an outfit so I paired them with a cropped tank in go-to black. The billowy top and relaxed denim were a cute and comfortable combination perfect for the weekend.”

Three Ways To Wear Bodysuits With Jennie Ross

Major flashback Friday vibes: the bodysuit is in & we can’t get enough. AEO First Essentials is going to be your go-to shop for this trend. With tons of color variations and fun details like keyhole cutouts, ruffles and ties, the #AEOSTYLE possibilities are endless. Bodysuits are perfect for every occasion, from lounging on the weekends to going out with friends. Model Jennie Ross styled three of our favorite new bodysuits to show you how you can make them your own. Get to know Jennie and the inspiration behind her #AEOSTYLE below!

Meet Jennie: “Hi everyone! I’m Jennie, a 21 year old model, currently living in Boston, MA. I have always had a great love for fashion, styling and the arts. I started modeling in high school, and over the past few years, I was featured in a handful of movies. Everything in my life has been super exciting lately, but it all comes with hard work and dedication. A major goal of mine, ever since I began modeling, was to always remind other women to be confident every day and to remember to always stay true to who they are.”

Jennie Ross styles AEO bodysuits three ways.

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “When I am on the go, either to work or to an audition, this is my go to look. The First Essentials V-Neck Bodysuit  is my number one choice for a top, because it looks so great on, and it’s insanely comfortable. The Bomber Jacket is an essential, in my opinion. It will help bring your streetwear look to the next level. Pair those with a hi-rise shortie, and you’re ready for a night out in the city.”

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “Growing up in New England, I’ve found that the seasons change far too quickly. That’s why I always keep a cute cardigan around for those chilly late summer nights.

I think everyone should have a go-to outfit that you can easily dress up by adding heels and a great pair of earrings.” Jennie recommends pairing this look with a cozy cardigan for when nights get chilly, too!

4th of July Fashion: What To Wear This Weekend

For the next few days, we’re living by the motto “grill, chill, shop, repeat.” With a long weekend ahead, we have one thing on our minds: epic fun. Fourth of July weekend is the most hyped weekend of the summer, and we can’t wait to see where you take your #AEOSTYLE! Whether your July 4 activities include hitting the water for tubing or boating or just kicking back with friends at home, #AEOSTYLE will carry you through in good fashion. Our best tip for picking out your Independence Day clothing is to go for an understated Americana feel. Even with just a hint of red, white & blue spirit, you can show off your USA pride and look good while you’re at it.

GIRLS: If there were ever a time to rock the latest neck-tie bandana trend, this weekend is it. A bold red bandana has a classic American vibe. Update this tried-and-true style staple by pairing it back to a bleached, light blue tee & hi-rise shorties in a bright wash. Wide-strapped espadrille flats give the look a trend-right finish.

What to wear this Independence Day: Show off your Americana #AEOSTYLE.

Shop The Look: Soft & Sexy Tomgirl Shirt | Denim X Hi-Rise ShortiePlatform Espadrille Slide Sandal | Red + White Bandana

GUYS: Show off your American spirit in true #AEOSTYLE. Try a different 4th of July approach this year, and give your typical graphic tee some edge. Pair your flag t-shirt with destructed, black denim cutoff shorts for a simpler, cooler feel than your typical July 4 look. Add some bright white sneaks and head out to that holiday BBQ.

Show off your 4th of July #AEOSTYLE with just a hint of Americana pride but all of the holiday spirit.

Top 5 Summer Style Essentials

Every season has its style staples, and Summer 2016 is no different! Each year, some trends change and some all-stars stay the same. We’re breaking down our top five summer style essentials for guys and girls to make putting together your new favorite look a breeze. Keep reading for our picks, and let us know what you’re loving this summer in the comments below.

GIRLS: Flowy silhouettes are a break-out hit this summer. Cold-shoulder dresses and tops are everywhere, and we love how versatile they are. Dressed up or down, the cold-shoulder look will keep you cool, literally and figuratively. Soft shorts are also huge this year – they’re one of our top picks thanks to their comfort factor & fun prints. Shortalls are also making a huge comeback this summer with updated fits, like crisscrossed open backs or a sturdier, standard overall look. Two trends that have returned from last year are the crop bralette and the hi-rise shortie. We don’t see these style essentials going away anytime soon, so get familiar with our latest collection filled with eyelet details and denim destruction.

Summer has arrived. We've picked out our top five summer must-have style essentials.

SHOP THE SUMMER ESSENTIALS:
1. SHORTALLS like the AEO Shortall
2. CROP BRALETTES  like the First Essentials Eyelet Bralette
3. COLD SHOULDER DRESSES  like the Floral Cold Shoulder Dress
4. SOFT SHORTS  like the Tie Dye Soft Runner Short
5. HI-RISE SHORTIES  like the Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie

GUYS: Get out your graphic tees. Updated patterns and prints, especially with southwestern feel, are popping up on our graphics t-shirt this summer. Likewise, trend button-down t-shirts NEED a spot in your closet. Print button-downs can be more casual than your standard white button-down shirt & perfect for a night out. Flex shorts in every color will carry you through any summer activity and complement your printed shirts perfectly. One of our favorite shoes this year is the slip-on sneaker, since they have an edgier feel than lace-ups & are super easy to pull on and go. Keep a lightweight hoodie around for when nights get chilly, especially in a cool indigo wash.
