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.

#AEOFESTIVALSTYLE: 2017 Music Festival Packing Guide

Pack light, pack right. As we’re heading into the 2017 music festival season, we’re on a mission to be super efficient packers without sacrificing any #AEOFestivalStyle. One thing we like about packing light is that challenges us to make several outfits using just a few essential staples and some great fashion pieces and accessories. First, think about how many days you’re going to be at the festival (three is pretty typical!). You’ll need to bring enough clothes to create three awesome looks, but have no fear – by swapping out key items like tops, you can mix and match your festival style without being an outfit repeater. Check out our packing guide for girls and guys below, and let us know what festivals you’re heading to this spring and summer in the comments!

WHAT TO PACK THIS FESTIVAL SEASON

GIRLS: All vintage, all day. This festival season, focus on vintage details in tops, denim and accessories like old-school lettering and lace-up or tied details. Mini backpacks, bandanas and round sunglasses are a must, especially when you’re pairing them back to vintage, two-toned denim shorts. Here’s what you need to pack: one pair of shorts and effortlessly pair back to tanks in neutral colors (we chose dark grey and one of our fave new neutrals, blush). If you want to switch it up one day, bring a lightweight slip dress and a kimono to layer on top. Bonus: you can layer the kimono over the tanks, too. Finish your look with a pair of versatile buckled ankle booties!

Music Festival Season 2017 Packing Guide: What To Wear To Music Festivals

PACK IT
TOPS:
Crop Tie Tank | Raglan Lace-Up T-Shirt | Hi-Neck Lace Trim Cami | Paisley Kimono
BOTTOMS:
Tassel Slip Dress | Vintage Hi-Rise Festival Short
ACCESSORIES: Printed Bandana | Perforated Belt | Blue Lens Small Aviator Sunglasses
Metal Round Sunglasses | Dolce Vita Spur Booties | Street Level Mini Backpack

GUYS: Guys, when you’re packing take a note from Drake and start from the bottom. What base layers do you really need? Our essentials are shoes, underwear and a great pair of denim shorts. We chose a pair of shorts that will last you throughout the festival (but we wouldn’t discourage you from packing one more pair, just in case!). Festivals can get a little sweaty, so make sure you have enough tees to wear each day. Vintage band tees, baseball tees and tie-dye tees will keep you festival ready. If there’s any time to get a little wild with your #AEOSTYLE, it’s during festival season – so go ahead and pack that printed poncho! It can double as rain gear, anyway. Top off your look with a snapback and beaded bracelets.

Musically Inspired #AEOSTYLE: Looks For The 2017 Grammy’s

The Grammy’s are back and (dare we say) better than ever. With nominees like Queen Bey, Adele, Chance the Rapper, Twenty One Pilots & more, it’s hard to say which powerhouse artists will take home a golden gramophone. Plus, we can’t wait to watch once-in-a-lifetime mash up performances from Lady Gaga + Metallica and other favorites. “Major Key”: We were so inspired by this year’s artists that we created two noteworthy #AEOSTYLE looks that have all the edge that music’s biggest night deserves. Say “Hello” to our musically-inspired looks below, and let us know which performances you’re most excited to see!

You’re going to “Love Yourself” in this look. Put your look into “Formation” by pairing black and white pieces with a glam edge. Get “Closer” to style #goals by layering a black bralette under a white mesh tank and white jeggings. Channel your inner “Dangerous Woman” in black lace-up block heels. Finish your outfit with small details (our favorite kinds of “Cheap Thrills”) like a delicate choker necklace, a gold watch and a black crossbody bag.

Grammy's Inspired Style

SHOP IT: Mesh T-Shirt | Aerie Lace + Mesh Triangle Bralette | Twill X Skinny | Steve Madden Admire
Breeda Asper Rose Black & Gold WatchChokersCrossbody Bag

Don’t get “Stressed Out”. If “Blue Ain’t Your Color”, that’s totally fine. You’ll have “No Problem” looking your best in edgy, cool black & white pieces, the most “Famous” color combo. Find some “Purpose” and ground our #AEOSTYLE in slip-on denim sneakers. Turn your look “All The Way Up” in a black tie-dyed tee under a button down shirt & black destructed skinny jeans.

Seasonally Inspired #AEOSTYLE: First Day Of Fall Outfit

It’s safe to say that Fall has become one of the most anticipated seasons of the year… and we don’t hate it. Aside from all the hype about pumpkin spice and changing leaves, Fall is a great season to push pause and refresh. It’s a season of change and a time to appreciate everything you have and can do. We’re ready for autumn, and we have the #AEOSTYLE to prove it. Check out our must-do’s for the season and, of course, what we’ll be wearing when Fall arrives on September 22.

WHAT  TO DO THIS SEASON

  • GET OUTSIDE: Make the most of mild temps and go for a hike to check out the Fall foliage.
  • TRY SOMETHING NEW: A food, an activity – anything! There’s never a bad time to take a chance.
  • REVAMP YOUR #AEOSTYLE: Clear out your closet and update your Fall look (hint: our looks below might help!).
  • SET SOME GOALS: Consciously choose to make a positive change this season.

WHAT TO WEAR ON THE FIRST DAY OF FALL

GUYS: Keep your look for the first day of Fall as chill as the weather. Layering is key this season, so mix colors, textures and styles for a cool, casual look. We took muted tones of green and orange and paired them back to one of our favorite colors this Fall, grey. Ground your look with neutrals in your denim & shoes – leather hi-top sneakers are durable and on-trend, perfect for an active outdoor season.

Welcome Autumn with First Day Of Fall #AEOSTYLE

SHOP IT: Military Jacket | Full Zip Hoodie | Find Your Wild Graphic Tee
Extreme Flex Slim Jean | Leather Hi-Top Sneaker | Classic Sunglasses

GIRLS: Laid-back #AEOSTYLE is the goal here, and you can achieve the look with simple layers inspired by the colors of the season. We love the bold color of a red tank, and the floral embroidery in the jacket we paired it with brings some life to this edgy look. Our outerwear of choice for Fall 2016 – the bomber jacket – is on top. Destructed hi-rise jeggings and hi-top shoes finish the outfit.

Welcome Autumn with First Day Of Fall #AEOSTYLE

SHOP IT: Embroidered Bomber Jacket | First Essentials V-Neck Tank (Similar) | Denim X Hi-Rise Jegging
Etched Cuff | Cat Eye SunglassesK-Swiss Classic VN Mid Sneaker
