Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

Crochet all day every day! Whether its crochet Tops, Bottoms or Swim, we’ve got you covered. 

Beach babe Elana Loo talks about one of her favorite trends and what makes her #AerieREAL below! Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

“Since being a young girl, I don’t really remember being obsessed with new trends or the latest fads – but instead, I always wanted to acquire a sense of style that was timeless, classic + effortless (if that’s attainable & you’ve figured it out – be sure to let me in on your secret). Despite this, each year we’re told what the latest, greatest styles are – sure, I love the new cuts, fabrics, etc. but I don’t completely change my style to fit what’s trending, instead I find myself turning back to what makes me feel confident and something that flatters my figure.”

Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

This Aerie Suit does just that! (Practically every single one of their suits does *major heart eyes*) The crochet detailing is a nod to the 70’s which is prevalent this year, but the color palette is something that’s very true to my aesthetic and pairing the bikini with a classic white button down and a relaxed, floppy hat makes this look lean more towards classic. I tend to fill my suitcase with easy, go-to outfits like this! Perfect for beach lounging if you ask me. Of course, to and from the beach, I love to rock a pair of jean shorts like these over the suit!”

“Now, why I am overjoyed to be putting pen to paper (or in this case, fingers to keyboard) in collaboration with Aerie + American Eagle is that they are the brands that have carried me along my style journey since adolescence. I always have found pieces that express my style and now, I am 100% behind them because of the values that come along with #AerieREAL. Embracing yourself as a natural woman, no matter what size, is vital to our happiness, success and confidence as women.”

Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

“See, the thing is, just as you probably have – I’ve struggled with whole-heartedly accepting my body and my flaws. I’m not a glamorous gal; I proudly work from home (mostly in my bikini), don’t wash or style my hair on the daily and yes, I have cellulite. Everyday, I see perfectly made up beauties with perfect curls, lipstick on and impeccable outfits – and I can easily sink into the feeling that my reality is lack-luster, that I’m not as beautiful. But here’s the real reality, it is my life and it is beautiful. It’s worth living, exploring and enjoying. This is true for all of our lives. My every day doesn’t look perfect, but I work hard to chase my goals and live an intentional life. I am proud of my curvy, bold self – flaws, scars, outspoken personality and all. These things don’t define who I am, but instead what I am putting out into the world does. So today, I proudly partner with Aerie to share my un-retouched photos – my unedited, real self; the same person you’ll see working from a coffee shop, grabbing groceries or hangin’ at the beach any given Sunday. My soul is beautiful, my body is beautiful – I am beautiful. And so are you. So rock that bikini, be proud of your scars, your curves + your uniqueness! Be you – authentically and unapologetically.”

Crochet all day every day! Our fave detail of the season adds the right amount of boho vibes.

Shannon from Upbeat Soles layers our Tiered Tie Dress over the Romantic Lace Longline Bralette and adds some fun, boho-inspired accessories just in time for festival season. What to Wear to a Festival

“With festival season in full swing, I cannot get enough of anything bohemian inspired! This simple black Aerie dress was the perfect base to start off a fun look full of festival vibes! When going with a festival look you can never have too many accessories so I paired it with this gorgeous stone layered necklace and super cute coin chain belt. As for the shoes, I went with a strappy lace up gladiator sandal. No festival look is complete without the perfect hat!”

A Letter to High-Schoolers: We Need Your Voice!

I can’t imagine how many times you’ve had to listen to people ask about your aspirations and goals after high school. What’s next, Marisa? When do you graduate, Jimmy? What are you planning to do after high school, Jasmine? You’ve heard over and over and over again about college. College is important. College is essential. College, college, college.

Well, sorry to all the Jimmy’s out there, but we agree.

BMR_MainBlogImage

Higher education—heading to a university, trade school, community college, or participating in distance learning—truly affects your future. In today’s economy, a high school diploma just isn’t enough. Students have to reach higher, which is why the Better Make Room initiative is working hard to rally the country around its “North Star” goal — that by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.

The process is long: weeks and weeks of frantically rushing to complete college applications. Pouring your heart and soul into your essays. How many times did you pull an all-nighter? How many times did you order pizza late at night while lying in the middle of your room, trying to come up with the perfect words to say to wow your college prospects? How many times did you get home from school, only to find you hadn’t received your acceptance letter yet?

Then one day, your letter arrived in the mail.

All those late nights and weekends spent studying were worth it. You accomplished something HUGE. Something to be proud of. The next step in your life, in your education, in your future is upon you.

Let’s celebrate together.

College Signing Day is an event supported by the Better Make Room campaign for students like you across the country to celebrate their futures and show off their college acceptance letters. It’s time that we celebrate what you’ve accomplished and how the world #BetterMakeRoom for students like you—on your way to change the world!

Show us your #SigningSelfie—a photo with your acceptance letter, of you in your college gear or just of you really excited about where you’re headed—and post it online on April 26, 2016.

If you post it with the hashtags #BetterMakeRoom and #CollegeSigningDay, it might just show up on American Eagle Outfitter’s Times Square billboard on April 26, where thousands of people walk by everyday!
