One of our favorite shirts from the latest collection, the AEO Lace Bell Sleeve Shirt, is on our must-have list right now for that very reason. Blogger Alyssa May styled the shirt with an easy, cool-girl vibe that’s perfect for the end of summer heat.

What Inspired Alyssa’s Look:
“When it comes to picking out an outfit, comfort is always my priority! Sure, of course I care about the way it looks– but feeling comfortable (and confident) in your outfit is just as important. This top is perfect for the summer because of it’s light and airy material. I especially love the lace and wide bell sleeves, as it gives it a bohemian vibe. Let’s just say, a flowy top and distressed shorts is my favorite combination for a warm summer’s day.”

Three Ways To Wear Bodysuits With Jennie Ross

Major flashback Friday vibes: the bodysuit is in & we can’t get enough. AEO First Essentials is going to be your go-to shop for this trend. With tons of color variations and fun details like keyhole cutouts, ruffles and ties, the #AEOSTYLE possibilities are endless. Bodysuits are perfect for every occasion, from lounging on the weekends to going out with friends. Model Jennie Ross styled three of our favorite new bodysuits to show you how you can make them your own. Get to know Jennie and the inspiration behind her #AEOSTYLE below!

Meet Jennie: “Hi everyone! I’m Jennie, a 21 year old model, currently living in Boston, MA. I have always had a great love for fashion, styling and the arts. I started modeling in high school, and over the past few years, I was featured in a handful of movies. Everything in my life has been super exciting lately, but it all comes with hard work and dedication. A major goal of mine, ever since I began modeling, was to always remind other women to be confident every day and to remember to always stay true to who they are.”

Jennie Ross styles AEO bodysuits three ways.

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “When I am on the go, either to work or to an audition, this is my go to look. The First Essentials V-Neck Bodysuit  is my number one choice for a top, because it looks so great on, and it’s insanely comfortable. The Bomber Jacket is an essential, in my opinion. It will help bring your streetwear look to the next level. Pair those with a hi-rise shortie, and you’re ready for a night out in the city.”

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “Growing up in New England, I’ve found that the seasons change far too quickly. That’s why I always keep a cute cardigan around for those chilly late summer nights. In this look, I am wearing the First Essentials Tie Bodysuit and the Tomgirl Jean. I think everyone should have a go-to outfit that you can easily dress up by adding heels and a great pair of earrings.” Jennie recommends pairing this look with a cozy cardigan for when nights get chilly, too!
