Iskra shared her morning skincare routine with us last week, but the glow doesn’t stop after that! She gets a midday refresh with Saturday Skin’s Cleanser and Smoothing Lotion to hydrate and smooth her skin.

Iskra's Summer Faves

Light fabrics are a fave in the summer heat. Our newest lace bralettes and cotton undies are a must-have for layering under your clothes for long days in the sun. Iskra throws on a pair of shades and a hat to protect herself the sun and to keep her outfit effortlessly cool.

Remember the mix and match! Iskra loves solid swim tops paired with printed and patterned bottoms.

Don’t forget the DIY! Tie on a Tassel Charm to our Cha Cha Triangle Bikini Tops and Bottoms for a suit that’s all you. Change them up or coordinate colors— they come in a variety of shades to keep the customization going all summer long. Take a tip from Iskra and wear them as earrings!

Love the Swim You’re in with Anastasia Ashley

Professional surfer and #AerieREAL girl Anastasia Ashley gets REAL about her commitment to not retouching her photos. Love the Swim You're in with Anastasia Ashley

“I am a surfer and my swimsuit is my uniform. 

I’ve never felt the need to photoshop my pictures because I am comfortable in my body. Maybe it is because I am always in a swimsuit and it is just natural for me but I think it is because I don’t spend hours in the gym killing myself, or starving myself or more importantly, I don’t compare myself to other women and their shapes and sizes. If I did, I would end up obsessing over things that don’t matter, like whether I am too muscular, It would be an endless cycle of disappointment and  everyone can get stuck in this evil, negative cycle. When we should really take that time to do more productive things for ourselves and each other. To live a happy and healthy life.” 

Love the Swim You're in with Anastasia Ashley

“As a woman, I think one of the biggest threats against women is brought on by both big companies in their advertising, but more importantly and more dangerously by other women through their social media, with the aggressive retouching of photos. 

We have to be aware that the social media isn’t real life and what we see is always through a filter. We also have to know who our audience is and that people are watching. We have a responsibility to send a positive message. We can’t give girls unrealistic expectations of what a body should look like, because a body really shouldn’t like anything other than what your body looks like.”

Earth Day 2017: #WeAllCan Change The World

At AEO, we take environmental sustainability seriously. In addition to partnering with other companies to fund more than 150 conservation projects across the country, we try to do our part in small ways each day to help conserve natural resources — whether it’s using less water and paper, drinking from non-disposable water bottles, turning off our computers and lights before we leave for the day or recycling clothing.

Here’s a little piece of what we’ve been doing — and a few things we can ALL do to help protect our planet.

Earth Day 2017 #WeAllCan Make A Difference

Styling the Jumper Dress with Monica Chang

Monica Chang loves all things fashion. When she’s not busy with her job at a WeHo startup, she’s filling her Insta (@monichang) with fun, vibrant photos of her bohemian-meets-minimalist style. Based in Los Angeles, Monica loves music (hiphop all the way), checking out the LA food scene (pad thai and donuts are at the top of her list) and vlogging her way through one coffee shop after another for her YouTube channel.

We challenged Monica to style this playful polka-dot jumper dress and she handled it like a BOSS, layering it over a short-sleeve tee for a chic yet effortless look. We’re loving the monochromatic effect of the tee and dress combo and the way she played up the look with a few key accessories and cool lace-up ballet flats.

Check out Monica’s full look in the AEO Jumper Dress below…

Monica on the inspiration behind her look:
“I’m all about wearing pieces that can easily transition from season to season – and this jumper dress is especially versatile! It’s still a bit chilly in Los Angeles (70 degrees is cold for me, alright?!) so I layered it with a plain black tee and simple gold jewelry, including some cute rings from American Eagle! I also wanted to add color and dimension to the outfit, so I paired it with my pink ballerina flats. And come summertime, I’ll likely style this with a lace bralette and my good ol’ Birkenstocks.”
