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.”

LOVE THE SWIM YOU’RE IN WITH SASSY RED LIPSTICK

This summer we want YOU to love the swim you’re in! #AerieREAL girl, Sarah from Sassy Red Lipstick shares her journey to  truly loving her body. LOVE THE SWIM YOU’RE IN WITH SASSY RED LIPSTICK

“I receive a cute swimsuit in the mail that I’ve been anxiously waiting to receive. I’ve seen it on so many gorgeous women on Instagram and I can’t wait to take it on my upcoming vacation. I tear open the package as soon as it arrives and retreat to the full-length mirror in my bedroom to put it on. As I pull the strap over my shoulders and look in the mirror, it’s clear that I look different, different than all those perfect images I saw on Instagram that made me want to buy it, different than the model on the website I bought it from. My boobs make the top stretch too tight, my booty swallows the back, my love handles push out the side, and my thighs hug each other. Tears start to well up in my eyes and I take off the suit and return it to its package. I stand there naked, fixating on all those parts that make me different.”

“Sad story, right? Something tells me many women can relate to this past experience of mine. Surrounded by a world of airbrushed images and perfected pixels, it is so hard for even traditionally beautiful women to feel pretty. For a curvy girl like me, there didn’t seem to be a place where I was accurately represented. After all, I am not a slim size 2, but I’m also not a plus size. I’m right in the middle, in some sort of a fashion limbo that society hasn’t quite figured out yet. After years of feeling displaced, I finally realized I had to find my own way of feeling loved and accepted. I knew it had to come from within. And the moment I figured that out was the moment I truly began loving my body.

Of course it didn’t happen overnight, but I told myself that every day I was going to love my body a little more than I did the day before. I was going to stop myself from constantly dwelling on the parts I didn’t like and focus on the ones I did. I decided I was going to express myself through my style and act confident until I truly became it.”

LOVE THE SWIM YOU’RE IN WITH SASSY RED LIPSTICK

“The past few years have been a huge growth period for me. It feels incredible to actually be able to say that I love my body and have no anxiety about changing it. My big booty and hips that make me a size 10? I love them for giving me a curvy hourglass shape. My love handles that roll over when I bend and turn? They are my sassy statement in a swimsuit. {Trust me ladies, the side roll is SO in right now!} These thick thighs that don’t let any daylight shine between them in photos? My husband says they’re one of my sexiest features. I agree. All these parts make up the real, natural body that is mine. It is feminine, it is strong, it is powerful.” 

LOVE THE SWIM YOU’RE IN WITH SASSY RED LIPSTICK

“One of the most beautiful aspects of my newfound confidence is that I am blessed enough to have an audience of women that I get to share it with, women who have felt the exact same way as me and are looking for someone to relate to. The response I get when I post my unretouched body in a swimsuit for the world to see is always so refreshing, encouraging, and empowering. The private messages I get from women wanting to become comfortable in their own skin and learn how to move further along their journey to self-love are so precious to me. Together we share a bond in the important duty of reminding one another how beautiful we actually are.

Now when I get a new swimsuit in the mail, my relationship with my bedroom mirror has become much more pleasant. I wiggle my boobs into place, I stretch the back out to accompany all the extra cushion, and then I look in the mirror and do something crazy: I love myself.”
