Let’s talk shoes. Fringe is huge this season, and we’re offering it in your favorite boots and sandals. We love the boho, free-spirited vibes that fringe brings to any outfit. Plus, it looks great paired with anything from your favorite maxi dress to your go-to pair of hi-rise denim.

On to dresses and skirts– we have literally every fit and color you could want for Spring, so you’re definitely going to find your new favorite maxi, midi, fit-and-flare or even a denim skirt (yep, they’re back again!). Add touches of color to your look with accessories like scarves and hats.

Since denim is synonymous with #AEOSTYLE, we can’t forget to mention the latest updates to our denim collection – Denim X and Flex/Denim technology in shorts! If you thought you loved our Denim X jeans, you’re going to love them in shorts form, too. If you’re not quite ready for shorts yet, utilize denim in other parts of your look, like a button-down or vest.

#AEOSTYLE: Soft Dressing featuring Fashion Blogger Rima Vaidila

#AEOSTYLE: Soft Dressing featuring Fashion Blogger Rima Vaidila

With spring on the horizon, we here at AEO have been falling even more in love with the current soft dressing trend. Soft dressing, also referred to as easy and soft styling, makes today’s girl-on-the go look stylish yet feel, relaxed and comfortable. Our entire collection consists of effortless pieces in solid colors and cool prints with a subtle emphasis on feminine details, including cinched and ruffled accents. If style combined with comfort weren’t already enough, you can mix and match the pieces or simply choose your favorite tops and bottoms to pair with items you already own.

We asked former AEO model and fashion blogger, Rima Vaidila from Fire on the Head to show us how she wears pieces from the collection.

Want to learn more about Rima? We asked her to tell us about her blog and career aspirations:

“I started my blog in October 2012 as just a way to express my casting and off duty style mixed in with my love for writing relatable content.  I admired bloggers because they were the epitome of authenticity and realness.  I was modeling full time when I started.  It was such a refreshing change to be able to style myself how I wanted and shoot around more for fun in addition to flexing my English brain with silly copy.  I’d like to think I’ve developed an aesthetic since beginning and am very excited to continue blogging and see where it will take me.  I’m finishing up my BA in marketing right now and still continue to model but am focusing on my blog with hopes to end up doing a combo of modeling, styling and creative direction post-graduation.  I want it all!”
