How To Style The Chambray Bomber & Hi-Rise Shorties With THEVOGUESPY

If we’re sure about one thing, it’s that denim will never go out of style. This year, quality denim is making a huge comeback, and we’re seeing the fabrication pop up in everything from your favorite pair of hi-rise shorties to the best button down shirts. Another big style revival? The bomber jacket! Blogger Lauren Elson from THEVOGUESPY put together a cool, denim-on-denim look featuring two #AEOSTYLE essentials, the AEO Chambray Bomber Jacket and the destroyed AEO Hi-Rise Denim Shortie.

What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
I am a firm believer that pretty much any situation is more fun if you are wearing a great outfit. You can style the bomber jacket so many different ways, too. You can wear denim shorts like I did, put it over a sundress, with a skirt … the possibilities are endless! I love the patchwork details on the front of the shorts and the distressed look on the back pocket. I wore a navy t-shirt underneath the bomber jacket to keep it super casual and threw on some of my favorite white sneakers!

How to Style a Tassel Tank

Tassels are everywhere this summer and our Breezy Tassel Tank is right on trend! Its side slits and bohemian-inspired print make it our breezy new fave.

Francesca from Frank Vinyl pairs it with distressed denim and a bright wedge for a pop of color!

How to Style a Tassel Tank

“This years Summer style is all about embroidery, patterns, colorful tassels and anything boho. Of course I’m all over this. I’ve always been a junkie of anything even slightly reminiscent or fully “all in” eclectic/boho/folklore style. Especially when it is all mixed with the right pieces and textures. I was trying to stay slightly more neutral lately but who am I kidding? It’s hard to stay away from prints and colors during this hot summer heat that we are experiencing here in So Cal. This Aerie Breezy Tassel Tank has all of the above. The foolproof easy tank to throw on with jeans and instantly make my casual outfit stylish. I’m a big fan of how I can also dress this way down with some cute breezy shorts around the house or to head to the beach with a bikini underneath.”

How to Style a Tassel Tank“For this street style look, I mixed a bit of Folklore style with modern street vibe. I paired this tank with old ripped jeans and bright red wedges. I like how the red wedge heels help bring all the reds in the outfit out (like in the cute little tassels). All about those tiny details! Of course I always try and make sure to draw the eye to those tiny unique details somehow.”

1 tablespoon water-based hair gel
1/2 teaspoon leave-in conditioner

Pot and stove top (or microwavable bowl or cup)

5. Give that bottle a good shake.

How To Apply:
Always shake your spray before applying. For best results, spray a few spritzes two inches from roots on either dry or wet hair. Scrunch, twist and toss your hair to create that perfectly messy texture. Spray and scrunch until you’ve reached your desired look! Pro tip: Use a hairdryer to speed up the drying process.

Introducing AEO APT: Fill Your Home With #AEOSTYLE

MAKE YOUR SPACE YOUR HAPPY PLACE
Styling tips & inspiration for transforming your dorm or apt with the new AEO APT collection: Feel like you’ve hit a wall in styling your apartment? We’ve got you covered. And your covers. Let’s start in your sanctuary, the bedroom. You want your bedroom to be a reflection of you, so we’re providing some ways for you to make the most of your space, no matter how small.

Make your space your happy place with home decor from the AEO apartment collection.

BEDDING IS EVERYTHING
The focal point of a bedroom is, well, the bed. You spend a lot of time there. It’s your snooze spot, your snack spot, your chill spot, and most importantly, your sleep spot. Make it yours by mixing and matching sheets and comforters to get a set that makes you want to spend the morning in bed (more than you already do). Whether you prefer a cool, morning hue or a darker, eye-catching print, your comforter should do the job of pulling everything in the room together so you can focus on catching all the Z’s you please. Try and incorporate a textured duvet to add subtle depth to the room, it’ll make sure you’ll always wake up on the right side of the bed.

GOT A BLANK SPACE, BABY?
Don’t be afraid of blank space, white walls are your friend! Open it up by avoiding darker paint colors that tend to give the illusion of a shrinking room. Instead, juxtapose a bold patterned boho tapestry against a blank wall to elongate and lighten up the space. Throw it over a bedframe to keep a clean look while not sacrificing the colors you love. If patterns aren’t your thing opt for a cityscape or nature scene that allows your bedroom to be your place to escape. Don’t let your walls confine you, give yourself more room to daydream.

LIGHT IT UP
You can’t go wrong with natural light, but when that doesn’t suffice you need lights that provide a warm and fuzzy wakeup aesthetic that doesn’t feel artificial. String lights are the perfect wall accent; hang them over your bed to get the right lighting for any mood, or bottle them up on a bedside table for a free-spirit, firefly aesthetic. You’ll get a soft glow ideal for mellow mornings or Saturday nights in.

PILLOW TALK
There is no such thing as too many pillows. Afraid your bed is boring? Liven it up by adding a printed or textured pillow to the mix. A great graphic or text decal can add just the right amount of fun to a room without being over the top. Throw it anywhere, whether it be on a bed or a chair or even the floor. Extra pillows mean more comfy, more cozy, and more you.

CLUTTER CONTROL
Less is more, especially in a smaller space. While your bedroom should be an expression of you, sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to go. Pick a few of your favorite photos to hang on a wall chain to add some personality to a bland corner without looking sloppy. Try not to crowd nightstands and shelves with unnecessary knickknacks, instead grab a staple candle or mug and keep the rest of the mess hidden in a vintage storage unit. A clean space is a happy space.

Whoever said that size matters was wrong! The room you’ve been dreaming about doesn’t have to stay a dream, make it a reality with AEO APT. Show us how you style your space with AEO APT using #liveinaeostyle on Instagram & Twitter.
