How to Style: a Beach Kimono

A bold beach coverup is always a good idea and the Aerie Beach Kimono is nothing short of genius. Not to mention, its fun floral print and fringe trim will compliment your solid Aerie Swim perfectly.

Katie from Little Black Blog hits the beach in her favorite Perky Triangle Wrap Bikini and Beach Kimono during her stay-cation in the Windy City.

Meet Katie:
“I’m Katie, the twenty-something behind the Chicago based personal style and beauty blog, Little Black Blog. I started my blog over four years ago as a creative outlet to express my love for fashion and graphic design. Since then, it’s evolved to become so much more and led me to meet other creative and inspiring women.”

What Inspired Katie’s Look:
“Sometimes a stay cation is the perfect little get away while living in the Windy City. I took a weekend stay downtown and escaped away to the North Avenue beach around the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. There is nothing more relaxing then sitting by a calm Lake Michigan, grabbing a cute pair of sunnies, packing my straw beach bag with a good book, and of course, mixing up my beach style with an amazing Aerie bikini.”

“I loved the fun zig-zag wrap top and the cute bottoms with cut outs. The best part about a solid color swim suit is I can go back to Aerie and purchase more bright tops or bottoms to mix and match my style. Sometimes too many options to pick from is a good thing!”

How to Style: a Beach Kimono “This bold beach kimono is the perfect coverup for a day at the beach or for a music filled weekend paired with the festival shortie. In Chicago, we love our music festivals in the park. A cute pair of high-waisted shorts that can double as a beach and festival essential are in a win in my book – but then again anything from Aerie is always a win. :)”

National Straw Hat Day with Blogger Ally Cog

What Inspired Alison’s Look: 
“I always prefer to keep things simple. By pairing slouchy boyfriend shorts with a knit tank I’m able to be comfortable and still feel cute. I also love that it lets the swimsuit be the statement piece! The color is bold, the crochet detail makes it anything but basic and the back gives it a hint of sexiness. And the hat totally ties everything together.”National Straw Hat Day with Blogger Ally Cog National Straw Hat Day with Blogger Ally Cog                      Get Alison’s Look: Panama Hat Beach Tank | Crochet One-Piece | AEO Denim Rolled Boy Midi

How to Wear the AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie with The Fashionista’s Diary

If you haven’t tried our AEO Denim X collection  yet, now is the perfect time. We’ve merged our high performance stretch denim with the classic Hi-Rise Shortie to create, you guessed it, the AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie. So now you can enjoy this revolutionary soft stretch cotton denim all year round.

Lauren Ashley from The Fashionista’s Diary pairs her AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie with a textured blouse and statement necklace for the ultimate casual glam look.

Meet Lauren:
“Hi, everyone! I’m Lauren Ashley and I blog over at The Fashionista’s Diary, which is a personal style and beauty blog based out of the sunshine state. Living in Miami, I have to get creative with my looks and really find ways to dress cute without dying of heat (seriously, it’s so hot here!). You’ll often see me sporting either neutrals or fun prints. I also love nothing more than some amazing jewels! Being a college student, comfort is key for me. While I love to get dressed up, I have to be comfortable to walk around campus and head to class!”

How to Wear the Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie

What Inspired Lauren’s Look: 
“I absolutely love my AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie in the dark rinse. First of all, darker colored jeans make you appear slimmer, so what girl doesn’t love that? Also, they are so comfortable. Seriously, guys, I could wear these all day! They have an amazing stretch to them and really make you feel confident and comfortable. I decided to go with a blush textured high/low shirt and paired it with my newest statement necklace. I wanted to keep a neutral look while still adding a bit of sass and print. I love that there are so many ways to dress up or down a great pair of denim shorts and I chose to keep things classic and casual. I also want to wear my new shorts with scalloped ballet flats and a printed top. These will most likely be my staple shorts for the summer!”

Spring Break Style with Life of a Coyfish

“I know we all have Spring break on the brain. Where to go, what to do, and most importantly what to pack. I had an early spring break and my girls and I took a road trip to Big Sur, California! Since we’d be hitting some of the nicest beaches in the States I knew I needed a cute suit to feel confident on that yummy sandy turf! This one-piece was INCREDIBLE! The tribal print kept things fun and eye-catching, while the cut-out back kept things flirty! Hello, surfer boys! ;) To top off the look, as we wandered around the boardwalk, I pulled on these cute lace detail shorties, pink sunnies, and gladiator sandals! Perfect Spring break beach look? I say yes!”Spring Break Style with Life of a Coyfish Spring Break Style with Life of a Coyfish

How to Style the Hi-Rise Festival Shortie with Thetique What Inspired Tiana’s Look:
“Recently, I’ve been leaning more toward timeless outfits-ones you’ll look back on ten years down the road and think, “Man, I had style,” instead of “What was I thinking?” And because I believe that these kinds of looks are best dressed with a bit of edge, the Hi-Rise Festival Shorties make for the perfect piece to have in your closet long-term. They’re great with just about everything. I decided to pair them with a simple stripe, great wash of denim and a wide-brimmed hat to put together a look that could be easily recreated by anyone looking for a relaxed, yet stylish outfit created solely from the pieces in their closet.”
