Love the Swim You’re in with Anastasia Ashley

Professional surfer and #AerieREAL girl Anastasia Ashley gets REAL about her commitment to not retouching her photos. Love the Swim You're in with Anastasia Ashley

“I am a surfer and my swimsuit is my uniform. 

I’ve never felt the need to photoshop my pictures because I am comfortable in my body. Maybe it is because I am always in a swimsuit and it is just natural for me but I think it is because I don’t spend hours in the gym killing myself, or starving myself or more importantly, I don’t compare myself to other women and their shapes and sizes. If I did, I would end up obsessing over things that don’t matter, like whether I am too muscular, It would be an endless cycle of disappointment and  everyone can get stuck in this evil, negative cycle. When we should really take that time to do more productive things for ourselves and each other. To live a happy and healthy life.”

“As a woman, I think one of the biggest threats against women is brought on by both big companies in their advertising, but more importantly and more dangerously by other women through their social media, with the aggressive retouching of photos. 

We have to be aware that the social media isn’t real life and what we see is always through a filter. We also have to know who our audience is and that people are watching. We have a responsibility to send a positive message. We can’t give girls unrealistic expectations of what a body should look like, because a body really shouldn’t like anything other than what your body looks like.”

AEO FESTIVAL FASHION: What To Wear This Fest Season

Wrist bands on, fest vibes strong. The countdown is on! The official start of festival season is less than one week away and kicks off summer in the Cali desert. For the next two weekends, nothing matters but the music (and the fashion, of course). To get you desert festival-ready, we’re showing you looks that will take you from day to night and everywhere in between. Will you be rocking festival fashion this summer? We want to see! Show us your festival style with #WeAllCan for a chance to be featured on social media or in our style gallery!

GIRLS: Take the unexpected route this festival season – try a denim skirt! Trade in your tried-and-true hi-rise denim short for it’s super on-trend BFF, the Vintage Hi-Rise Skirt. With just-right destruction in a chic black wash, this skirt is the perfect backdrop for all of your festival accessories. We’re loving a more understated festival look this season, so take advantage of the embroidery craze to add color to your outfit. Denim on denim is always in, especially with an embroidered back (this tiger-back jacket is so 90s and reminds us of old-school rock and roll). Add a feminine touch to the look with a lace trim cami and finish off the outfit with accessories like a woven bootie, sunnies and a mini-backpack (to hold all your festival necessities like a portable charger and water bottle!).

GUYSChannel your inner beach-bound, vacay mode self for this year’s festival look. Bold, eye-catching patterns are in, so find the craziest island print you can! From palms to birds, your button-down shirt should be the personality of your outfit. Take a walk on the denim side for bottoms with cutoff denim shorts rather than a flat front short. With our Flex technology, these shorts will take you through hours of dancing AND add some edge to your look. Add some black lace-up sneakers and a few neutral accessories (think: metal cuff bracelet) to complete your festival style.
