What to do:
Step One: Use your ruler to create guides along the width of the shirt that will indicate the desired length of your fringes. Space the points about a half an inch to an inch apart, depending on your preference. Do this on the front and the back of the shirt.

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

Whether you go all out for festival season or give it a subtle nod, our festival faves are sure to bring out your inner boho babe.

We asked our girl Color Me Courtney to show us what she would wear to a festival. Between the crochet, destroyed denim and pop of color, it’s safe to say that we’re in festival heaven.

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

What Inspired Courtney’s Look:
“For this festival-esqe look I turned to Aerie & American Eagle, because they have a little bit of that boho vibe without being too bananas about it. When I needed festival fashion, they were the perfect partner for creating this chillaaxxeddd look – that’s perfect for Coachella or just somewhere coastal (ps is it summer yet?).”

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

“A girly-lacey bikini in a fun pop of color, prevented me from wearing a bra (score) while providing a little color pop when layered under a flowy poncho! I paired it with basic distressed denim shorts, an easy basic and must have for Spring/summer before adding studded sandals, a crocheted backpack and black sunnies. Oh and so you could still recognize me, I added a bright orange lip ;)”

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!”
