Spring Break #AEOSTYLE: Packing Guide

Spring Break is back! We’re here to help you pack your bags for your Spring Break getaway with out packing guide. Pull out those board shorts & swim suits (we’re thinking the Aerie one-piece scoop suit will be our go-to this year), because we’re beach bound. We’ve got everything you need to survive the sun, sand and (let’s face it) non-stop activity of vacay week, from button-downs and dresses to tees and tanks. From sun-up to sun-down, your #AEOSTYLE will be on point in baseball hats and on-trend sunglasses to block out the shade. Ready to pack all of your spring break essentials? Let’s do this, #SB2017!

GUYS

Your packing list is as easy as it gets: shirts, shorts, shoes. Keep your luggage light by picking pieces in the same color family and picking tops like button-downs and active tees that you can swap out between board shorts and cutoff denim shorts. Top your look off with a baseball hat and Birks on the bottom, and make waves by spritzing on Surf cologne when you go out at night.

Outfit Completers: Finish Your Look In #AEOSTYLE

The quickest way to elevate your look? Add some accessories! Our favorite way to finish a look is by adding some outfit completers like hats, jewelry, belts or bags. Adding an accessory (or, like, three!) can take a look from good to great in a flash. Stocking up on little details – think a trendy backpack or a go-with-anything pair of sneakers – make it easy to build a complete look.

Start with the basics: a cool pair of jeans and a tee or sweater. Next, think about adding layers, like a denim shirt, jacket or sweatshirt. Then, it’s time to finish your look. Right now, we’re all about athletic details like sneakers and baseball hats or 90s accessories like a bandana and metallic pieces. Check out the looks below for inspiration to build your own complete look & show off your unique #AEOSTYLE!

How To Style The Active Flex Bomber Jacket With The Modern Otter

By now, we’re assuming that you’ve noticed our outerwear obsession: the bomber jacket is everywhere & we can’t stop, won’t stop. This season, we’ve taken the bomber jacket for an active spin by constructing the jacket from our signature Flex fabric for increased comfort & flexibility. With traditional ribbing around the collar and cuffs, the AEO Active Flex Bomber Jacket has the look of your favorite bomber and and a feel that’s totally new. Aaron, the menswear blogger behind The Modern Otter, styled our Active Bomber Jacket with casual layers to tone down the loungewear feel and amp up the wear-anywhere, ready-for-whatever vibe. Keep reading to see Aaron’s full look & shop his #AEOSTYLE. Plus, check out Aaron’s past post with us here.

How To Style The Active Flex Bomber Jacket With Blogger The Modern Otter

MEET AARON: “Hi, I’m Aaron. The Modern Otter started from a passion to tell the stories behind fashion. It’s easy to throw up a few photos, but I care about who made it, where the fabric came from, what inspired the design or what trend it embodies. Every piece of clothing tells a story and I think it’s important to know that story. That sounds lofty, I know. But The Modern Otter is really just a place of discovery. A site for us to find cool places and things and talk about them.

A little about me: I currently live in New York City but have lived in California, Arizona and UpState(ish) New York. My background is in theatre and costume design, but I spent 10 years as a merchandising manager for a major retailer. Now I’m blogging and advising full time!”

How To Style The Active Flex Bomber Jacket With Blogger The Modern Otter

WHAT INSPIRED AARON’S LOOK: “What makes a bomber a bomber? Most notably, the ribbed wrists and waist band. That’s why a baseball jacket and a leather jacket can both be ‘bombers’. Those embroidered “signature” jackets you saw all over the place this Summer? Yup. Those are bombers too. For today’s look, I paired AEO’s Active Flex Bomber Jacket with a twill shirt and ribbed turtleneck for some casual Fall layering. I’m obsessed with turtlenecks (in case you couldn’t tell from my Insta), and I took the styling up a notch by wearing it under my twill shirt. This only works if the turtleneck is thin.”

#AEOSTYLE Fashion Roundup: Lighten Up

Warmer weather equals lighter, brighter #AEOSTYLE! It’s simple math. Summer is all about easygoing style. Some of our favorite trends this season are tassel & lace details and neutral color-mixing, and this week, you showed us that you’re into these looks, too. Your #OOTD proved that Summer 2016 is the season of denim shorts… and endless style possibilities abound. Breezy kimonos, off-the-shoulder silhouettes & button down shirts are great toppers to both shorts and jeans.

Adding accessories like slip-on sneakers and high-tops or a great fringe bag and sunglasses won our hearts. Plus, cool denim jackets and bombers were essential to your looks (and work well for layering when nights get chilly). Keep scrolling to see the best #AEOSTYLE looks of the week.
