What’s Hot For Summer: Camo and Global Prints

One of the best things about summer is the #AEOStyle that goes with it. This season, camo is sticking around for guys while ikat and global prints are still top of the trend list for women. Check out some of our favorite pieces below!

Guys:  The menswear catwalks were flooded with camo this year and this print is such a huge trend that it is being considered the new khaki. To help you incorporate this look into your wardrobe, we’ve  taken the rugged yet fun print to new levels by throwing it on unexpected items like canvas sneakers, bags and hats. Our favorite piece has to be the camo cargo short paired back to classics like chambray or workwear shirts and slip on sneakers for a low key vibe.  Luckily, the print is muted enough to pair with any color you want… so go ahead, what are you waiting for... step up your #AEOStyle, by rocking your camo with bold colors like citron or neon pink. Your fashion game has never looked so good.

Stylist Tip: Only wear ONE piece of camo at a time. (you will thank us for this)

Girls:  Ikat and global prints have been a favorite in our styling and fashion world this year (as well as in our apartments, think pillows and curtains!) and luckily for us it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. To keep the look fresh, we’ve evolved the trend into a broader scope of products.  If you haven’t tried the global trend already you should. Whatever your style is,  you can easily incorporate the print into your look, from the boho girl with a backpack to the preppier girl in a classic short. We love this trend paired back to neutral pieces allowing it to make a statement – a classic denim shirt with bold print shorts are a summer staple. The printed backpack really pops against a solid maxi dress.

Stylist Tip: The same camo tip applies for ikat, only one piece at a time… just sayin’


Go to great lengths in bright and bold #AEOStyle

#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Summer Whites

You know the old saying – don’t wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Here at American Eagle Outfitters, we think fashion rules are made to be broken. We’re never willing to give up our favorite white pieces (winter whites, anyone?) and neither are two of our favorite fashion bloggers, Rima from Fire on the Head and Blair from Love, Blair.

Rima and Blair pulled together two all-white looks that are so cute your grandmother won’t mind that you’re wearing white a few days early. Check out their looks below, learn more about each girl and get inspired by their awesome #AEOSTYLE.

A closet full of denim and basics allows Rima to stay authentic to her personal style and act as an approachable inspiration for young women everywhere. This is showcased on Rima’s blog, Fire on the Head, where she posts her simplistic looks with a tomboy twist.

What inspired Rima’s look:
Nothing screams summer like an all white look with tomboy flair, of course. I paired my American Eagle Outfitters Boy Jean Crop with the Short Sleeve Favorite Shirt and sneakers for a boyish look that’s perfect for backyard BBQ’s and skating around the neighborhood. The school uniform vibes on top are balanced out with ripped knee detailing on the baggy fit jeans. Both pieces are light weight and perfect for the heat. Excuse me while I wear variations on this look all summer long!

What inspired Blair’s look:
I’ve been venturing into crop tops as of late and fell in love with this shortall and crop combo. The all-white look felt uber-springy and playful, especially with a dash of midriff and baby bun hairs.
