3 SUMMER STAPLES, ENDLESS BEACH VIBES

Molly Hogan (@trendychickadee) is a sun-chasing, sandy-beach-loving boho babe. Based in LA, her blog is dedicated to bringing followers all the latest info on her favorite up-and-coming brands, emerging trends, travel diaries and more.

Molly’s relaxed, beachy vibe reminds us of what we love most about summer: effortless, sunny style during the warmest days of the year. We asked her to show us her take on 3 summer staples – tanks, shorts and Aerie swim!

Next up, Molly took her bike for a quick spin around town in classic white denim shorts and a flirty, strapless ruffled top. Does anything feel more boardwalk-ready than pale, nautical stripes? (We think not!)

“My favorite summer wardrobe staple is a pair of white denim shorts, and AEO has the best of the best! I paired them with a breezy tube top for a beach bike ride, and then a chambray crop later in the day for an early dinner.”

Styling The Cutout Floral Dress with Amanda Oleri

Growing up just outside of NYC, Amanda Oleri (@eastcoastfox) was introduced at a young age to the culture, fashion and pace of the city –  an energy that still influences her unique style (an effortless mix of trendy, modern and bohemian) today.

These days, you’ll most often find the founder of lifestyle destination East Coast Fox exploring her Brooklyn neighborhood, jet-setting to her next spontaneous escape destination, or updating the blog with her latest style tips and adventures.

We asked Amanda to style this ultra-feminine floral dress (with some eye-catching cutouts), and she gave it her signature NYC spin by pairing it with these bright-white high tops – because, as she puts it, “you can’t walk the city in heels!” The combo of flirty florals and sporty sneakers makes for an effortless, throw-on-and-go look.

Check out Amanda’s full look below…

Amanda on the inspiration behind her look:
“A cute floral dress is all you need ATM. Lucky for you, I’ve got one right here. And don’t be silly, it’s not your average floral dress – this baby is a head-turner. Between the sweet little cutouts on the side and the keyhole in the front, it’s the perfect blend of flirty and cute.”

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.”

Floral dresses are a staple every fashionista needs in their wardrobe this spring. This one, by American Eagle, feels fresh and girly, and swishes gently as you walk… or dance! I wore it with brown strappy heels and a jean jacket, but you can totally wear yours on a sunny spring day with sandals, hat and an oversized tote.”
