How To Make Avocado Toast 3 Ways with Aerie

Avocados are incredible nutrition. They provide more potassium than a banana and 15 grams of healthy fats like oleic acid, which has been linked to reduced inflammation and beneficial effects on the genes that fight cancer. The great thing about avocados is they are so versatile—you can add them to smoothies, throw them on tacos for dinner, eat them plain out of a bowl or even add them to desserts. We are avocado obsessed, and after trying these recipes for Avocado Toast, you will be too! Avocado toast is a quick and easy way to get a healthy and filling breakfast or snack. All of these recipes take less than 5 minutes to make and will keep you full and energized for hours!

Check out how Lauren and Chandler styled our Fringe Muscle Tank below.

How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
“This fringe top is perfect to throw on while going out for a day at the beach this summer! This top is not only a cute shirt but also makes a great swimsuit coverup! I chose to wear this soft comfy fringe top over my swimsuit top and paired it with loose comfy floral shorts. This is a great go-to outfit for a hot summer day at the beach!”

How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

What Inspired Chandler’s Look: 
“I must say, tops like this one are my jam in the summertime.  A lightweight, fringe tank top is the ultimate easy-breezy summer staple to have in your wardrobe, don’t you agree?  I wanted to play up the effortless, music festival vibe of this tank, so I added a chic, wide-brim fedora and some of my favorite lived-in sandals.  I also decided to skip the plain blue jean shorts for some white cutoffs to showcase the big white-on-white trend of this season.  This look is perfect for nearly every summer occasion you can think of, and that’s what I really love about it.”How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

How to Wear the Textured Poncho with Mel Denisse

The poncho is the ultimate free-spirited layer. Its draped silhouette, bold geo pattern and fringe hem are sure to add the perfect amount of boho to your pulled together look.

Mel from Mel Denisse pairs her favorite Textured Poncho with Shorties for an effortless look. How to Wear the Textured Poncho with Mel Denisse

Meet Mel:
Mel is a writer at heart– filling scrap books and blank pages since before she can remember. Since combining that with modeling + photography and other artistic platforms, she’s cultivated a sense of all around living in beauty through her creativity to spark inspiration in daily life.

How to Wear the Textured Poncho with Mel Denisse

What Inspired Mel’s Look:
“My style mostly defaults towards a ‘dark and flowy’ aesthetic, which makes this textured poncho so fun to wear. Its effortlessness can make its way into almost any look, and that is a staple piece in my opinion. I paired it with some destroyed denim shorts and a black body suit as a contrast to give the poncho more room to ‘play.’ I’m looking forward to creating more looks with it throughout the summer season.”

How to Wear the Tomgirl Short with Vanilla Extract

What Inspired Nichole’s Look:
“I live in distressed shorts all summer long and these tom girl shorts are in high rotation. They’re lightweight with ample stretch making them comfortable for all sorts of fun summer activities. I was drawn to this particular fit because they strike the perfect balance between regular shorts and the relaxed boyfriend style, which I’ve found to be universally flattering. Since my style is pretty casual, I decided to pair them with a favorite plaid button down, but they also look great with a plain white tee or light sweater!”How to Wear the Tomgirl Short with Vanilla Extract
