AEO FESTIVAL FASHION: What To Wear This Fest Season

Wrist bands on, fest vibes strong. The countdown is on! The official start of festival season is less than one week away and kicks off summer in the Cali desert. For the next two weekends, nothing matters but the music (and the fashion, of course). To get you desert festival-ready, we’re showing you looks that will take you from day to night and everywhere in between. Will you be rocking festival fashion this summer? We want to see! Show us your festival style with #WeAllCan for a chance to be featured on social media or in our style gallery!

GIRLS: Take the unexpected route this festival season – try a denim skirt! Trade in your tried-and-true hi-rise denim short for it’s super on-trend BFF, the Vintage Hi-Rise Skirt. With just-right destruction in a chic black wash, this skirt is the perfect backdrop for all of your festival accessories. We’re loving a more understated festival look this season, so take advantage of the embroidery craze to add color to your outfit. Denim on denim is always in, especially with an embroidered back (this tiger-back jacket is so 90s and reminds us of old-school rock and roll). Add a feminine touch to the look with a lace trim cami and finish off the outfit with accessories like a woven bootie, sunnies and a mini-backpack (to hold all your festival necessities like a portable charger and water bottle!).

GUYSChannel your inner beach-bound, vacay mode self for this year’s festival look. Bold, eye-catching patterns are in, so find the craziest island print you can! From palms to birds, your button-down shirt should be the personality of your outfit. Take a walk on the denim side for bottoms with cutoff denim shorts rather than a flat front short. With our Flex technology, these shorts will take you through hours of dancing AND add some edge to your look. Add some black lace-up sneakers and a few neutral accessories (think: metal cuff bracelet) to complete your festival style.

How To Style A Matching Skirt & Crop Top With The Boho Flow

We love a festival-ready look. Black ground floral patterns are an edgy way to ease into pretty Spring patterns, and few things make us think of warm weather more than crop tops and bare shoulders. We’re also really in to the matchback look this season (perfect pairs are so easy to wear when the work is already done for you!). Cristina from The Boho Flow brings this look to life in our Off-The-Shoulder Crop Top and Button Front Maxi Skirt. Check out Cristina’s full look below & let us know how you’ll style a matching set in the comments (or take a pic & show us for a chance to be featured in our Style Gallery)!

Meet Cristina:
“I created my fashion lifestyle blog, The Boho Flow, in hopes of inspiring woman all over through my personal style, taste in music and thirst for life. I believe there is beauty in everything life has to offer. I also believe you create your own beauty, hence The Boho Flow, in my case. It’s a space where I get to create freely everything I find beautiful or inspiring.

Throughout my time as a blogger, I’ve come to realize that I have many passions. I’m currently very passionate about travelling and living a healthy and proactive lifestyle. I think that there’s a lot a person can learn from travelling and creating content and really just following your heart, dreams and what brings you the most joy.

My main goal is to keep creating innovative content that inspires the on the go millennial young woman. I’m a strong believer in spiritually and a healthy lifestyle, so as I grow and learn much about myself, my style, beliefs and mindset evolve just the same.Travelling to places I’ve never seen. Learning different cultures, perspectives, beliefs, lifestyles, etc., these are all characteristics that help me create content to encourage woman to feel strong, beautiful, elegant, ambitious all while conveying a cool unique and flavourful in the know style.”

What Inspired Cristina’s Look:
“If you know anything about me or my style, you would know that I love black. It was a pretty easy choice for me to pick such a cute ensemble since its base is black, making the floral print not too overbearing and just feminine enough.

Spring is in bloom, which means florals, off the shoulder tops, skirts and everything pretty. As a result, this look right here. American Eagle really knows how to start a new season with a bang. I took the liberty in pairing this awesome floral crop top and matching maxi skirt with fishnets, a leather jacket ( because it’s not yet warm enough to be bare shoulder ) and velvet heel booties. I wanted to add my edgy touch to this awesome floral set and voilà!

I can’t wait for summer so that I can get to rock this top with a pair of high-waisted jeans and a little denim jacket or this skirt with a little tank or thin knitted sweater and sneakers. Looks I really look forward styling with these pretty American Eagle pieces.”

How To Style The One Shoulder Chambray Shirt With Estrogen Studio

Showing a little shoulder is THE trend of 2017. This silhouette is everywhere in our closets – sweaters, dresses, tanks, tops – and we definitely don’t hate it. In must-have one shoulder, cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder fits, this is a summer-ready trend that looks more difficult to style than it is! Blogger Tanya from Estrogen Studio styled our One Shoulder Chambray Shirt with a casual vibe and made the look her own by adding a long scarf that draped down the open back and accentuated the ruffle details on the neckline. Check out Tanya’s full look below & show us how you’re styling the one shoulder trend YOUR way for a chance to be featured in our Style Gallery!

What Inspired Tanya’s Look:
“I absolutely loved the One Shoulder Chambray Shirt. The lightweight material is perfect for the summer weather and festival season. You can style the shirt in so many different ways – a pair of white shorts, high-waisted skirt, or a pair of jeans. Since the weather is still warming up in Toronto, I opted for a pair of black jeans and my favourite moccasins to keep it super casual. To add my personal style to this off-shoulder trend, I added a light, red scarf for the perfect finishing touch! To make sure your shoulders and collarbones pop in this shirt, make sure to dust your favourite highlighter to give your skin a healthy glow.”

#WeAllCan X Project 24

One  in  every  10  people  globally  lack  access  to  clean  water,  with 1 in 4 using  a  drinking  water  source  with  fecal contamination. It’s time we  change  this!  This  World  Water  Day,  March  22,  American Eagle Outfitters is  joining  forces with  Planet  Water  Foundation for PROJECT  24.

PROJECT  24’s  mission is to  build  24  water  filtration  systems  in  24  hours,  bringing  clean  water  to  24,000  people across 5  countries including  Cambodia,  Colombia,  India,  Indonesia,  and  the  Philippines.  American Eagle Outfitters has sponsored  one  of  the  24  clean water  towers  that  are  part  of  this  initiative  providing  critical  support  to  a community  in  need  in  Greater Delhi, India.

American Eagle Outfitters is  honored  to  step  up  to  the  challenge  and  play  an  important  role  in  helping  change the  lives  of  24,000 people  in  a  span  of  just  24  hours. Join  us  and  together  we  will  abolish  water  poverty,  one  community  at  a time!

In efforts to help bring clean water to communities, we are donating 15,000 dollars to build a water tower at Sangat Green Public School in Deri Machha Village. Ajay, a Grade 6 student at the school said, “I carry my drinking water from home as school water is dirty, and it smells bad. I feel sick for days after drinking water at school.”

American Eagle Outfitters is proud to help bring clean, filtered water to thousands of people in Deri Machha.  You can help provide clean water to even more kids in need by visiting www.planet-water.org.

Happy World Water Day!
