Outdoor Adventures In AEO Flex Shorts

Now that warm weather has arrived, it’s time for your casual look to undergo a drastic change; trade in those sweaters & boots for shorts & sandals and get outside! Even if you’re short on time, there are plenty of adventures waiting. To take the guesswork out of planning, we’ve mapped out four short adventures you can do in a day… and the best AEO Flex shorts to go with ‘em.

Make the Climb
It’s as simple as getting to your nearest park, or even venturing out on an urban hike. Whether you explore the trails around you or blaze your own, your AEO Hybrid Shorts are designed to move with you, using revolutionary stretch technology.

Plus, some of the most challenging mountains on the planet might actually be right in your neighborhood. Need some recommendations? Check out Issaquah Alps & Cougar Mountain just outside of Seattle, Griffith Park in West Hollywood or Bear Mountain near NYC.

We’ve mapped out four short adventures you can do in a day… and the best AEO Flex Shorts to go with them.

Shop The Look: Active Flex Slim Flat Front Short | Legend Henley T-Shirt | Folding Aviator Sunglasses
Bandana | Straw Fedora Hat (Similar) | Teva Suede Sandal

Check Out a Show
Concerts always pop up over the summer months, so keep your eyes open for shows in your city. We can’t think of anything more fun than spending the day listening to your favorite songs, live.

For ultimate comfort, try our new Baja shorts, which mix the ease of athletic wear with a fresh beach-inspired silhouette. Our latest collection is full of solid and patterned options to really elevate your look. Pair your shorts with a slim-fit button down or a printed tee and finish the look with your go-to sneakers.

Go Paddleboarding
Nothing says adventure like getting into the great outdoors. If you’re heading out for a really active jaunt, pull on a pair of Flex board shorts or trunks. Each pair is made with 4-way stretch fabric so you won’t feel constricted as you’re moving out on the water. Plus, the quick-drying fabric is perfect for going from swim to street.

Grab your sunscreen and a tank or legend tee, and head to your nearest river or lake. Paddleboarding is becoming increasingly popular, so you should be able to find a spot that offers the water sport in your city.

Create a Backyard BBQ
Take some time to plan a chill backyard barbeque.  All you’ll need? A hot grill and something cool to drink! This short adventure starts as soon as you turn on the tunes. Play some yard games to extend the afternoon, and make sure you’re wearing your Flex Flat Front Shorts for an iconic look with ultimate comfort and retention. A revolutionary blend of cotton and elastic fibers helps keep you cool while you’re on the move or manning the grill.

AEO Men’s Flex/Shorts: Shorts Guide

With Daylight Savings Time behind us, we’re in full-on warm weather mode. Our newest collection of shorts now features the Flex technology you’ve come to know well in our Denim, so it’s time to create your own shorts story in AEO shorts. We’ve got so many color and fit options that we created a Flex/Shorts Guide to help you find the best Flex/Shorts to suit your needs. Check out each fit below, and make sure you hover over the shoppable image, which will take you right to the fits you want.

“New Active Flex utilizes high stretch technology for superior flexibility. Revolutionary comfort, retention & durability… made to move with you.”

AEO Active Flex Slim Flat Front Short: Our Men’s Active Flex Slim Flat Front Short features Level 2 Flex and a slim fit. The front of the short is flat with slant pockets and coin pockets. On the back, you’ll find welt and buttoned pockets. These shorts hit above the knee with a 9″ inseam!

AEO Active Flex Classic Front Short: Like the flat front shorts, these feature Level 2 Flex & similar slant front pockets. The biggest difference between these shorts and the Slim shorts are the inseam. The Classic Front Short hits on the knee with a 10″ inseam for a more classic shorts look.

AEO Active Flex Classic Length Cargo Short: What would a Shorts Guide be without the evergreen Cargo Short? Our Active Flex Classic Length Cargo Short is relaxed thru the leg and hits right above the knee with a 10″ inseam. You’ll have plenty of storage for your phone & wallet in front pockets and side cargo pockets, along with flap back pockets.

AEO Core Flex Denim Cutoff Short: Our denim Core Flex Cutoff Shorts feature Level One Flex for a feel closer to traditional denim but with all of the same great movement you can achieve with Flex technology. These shorts have a 10″ inseam, so they’ll hit at the knee. With front slant and back patch pockets, you can store what you need for all of your adventures.

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!”

Meet Shannon:
“I am a born and raised Florida girl that is a medical professional by day, fashion blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are parents to a crazy Aussie mix and kitty. I created Upbeat Soles as a way to express my fashion juices that are held in by wearing scrubs most of the days.

What Inspired Shannon’s Look:
“I just love anything retro inspired, so I am super excited the trend is back this Spring! Aerie’s retro high-waisted swimsuits has definitely got me smitten! I went with their super fun hi-rise bikini bottom in the multi colored pattern, which is so perfect for Spring! I paired it with their crop bikini top in red! I just love the high neckline and the criss cross back is just too cute! I threw on my hi-rise festival shortie to make this look perfect for a day of cruising on the beach. I finished this look with a straw panama hat and mirrored sunnies!”
