Festival Season #AEOStyle

If there is one thing that we love other than #AEOStyle, it’s music and this Summer there are some incredible festivals to boogie out to. Back in April, Preston and Coco decided to hit the west coast and take on Coachella. Not only did they experience some great music, they found spectacular fashion trends that are perfect for any music festival this season. Check out what’s trending on center stage, channel your inner celebrity with similar style and get ready to pack for your next music adventure. Our next stop? Governors Ball in New York City and Manchester, Tennessee to take on Bonnaroo! Be sure to check out the style below and click through our Spotify link to get our Bonnaroo playlist!

One Cardigan, Three Ways to Wear it

Please don’t get mad at us for writing a blog post that focuses on a sweater after this long, long winter – but this sweater is one that you will be thanking us for as you embark on your summer journey.  After the sun sets and the air starts to feel a bit crisp, what is the first thing we always do…  grab our boyfriend’s over-sized and not so fresh sweatshirt, of course. Well instead of feeling warm and looking not put together, this cardigan will have you looking put together, feeling cozy (and quite stylish might we add).

As a brand that encourages and appreciates individual style, each week we love the anticipation of waiting to see how notable fashion bloggers will choose to style an AEO piece in our #AEOStyle challenge. This week’s challenge… the Boyfriend shirt, and per usual, we were not disappointed with the results. Three fashionistas and three completely different looks were outfitted to express the originality of Lauren, Megan and Johnnalynn. Read on to learn why they chose to style the boyfriend shirt the way they did and be inspired to create distinctive looks of your own!

What inspired Lauren’s look:
My summer uniform almost always consists of boyfriend jeans, a strappy heel and some sort of easy, relaxed top. This pastel blue Relaxed Dolman Girlfriend Shirt is the perfect summer staple and the latest addition to my go-to summer look. To dress up the more laid-back vibe, I decided to throw on a crisp white blazer and my favorite bejeweled statement necklace, finishing off the look with a summer-ready pastel lip.

What inspired Megan’s look:
I styled this pretty blue top with some casual linen pants and a summer hat for an easy breezy look. The light colors are perfect for spring while the sleeves and pants still keep me fully covered on those windy spring days. I topped it off with a hat to shield the sun and spent the day outdoors enjoying my favorite season of the year.

What inspired Johnnalynn’s look:
Although I enjoy wearing a variety of different clothing trends, I’m a true bohemian at heart. With festival season now in full swing, I saw the Relaxed Dolman Girlfriend Shirt as the perfect opportunity to style an easy, chic and modern bohemian look. I love how soft and slouchy this shirt is so I thought the relaxed look of the shirt would be a great match with a fitted maxi skirt. My gladiators added a fabulous peak-a-boo for the two slits going up either side of the maxi skirt, and what better accessory to top off a bohemian look than a beautiful flower crown?
