Three Ways To Wear Bodysuits With Jennie Ross

Major flashback Friday vibes: the bodysuit is in & we can’t get enough. AEO First Essentials is going to be your go-to shop for this trend. With tons of color variations and fun details like keyhole cutouts, ruffles and ties, the #AEOSTYLE possibilities are endless. Bodysuits are perfect for every occasion, from lounging on the weekends to going out with friends. Model Jennie Ross styled three of our favorite new bodysuits to show you how you can make them your own. Get to know Jennie and the inspiration behind her #AEOSTYLE below!

Meet Jennie: “Hi everyone! I’m Jennie, a 21 year old model, currently living in Boston, MA. I have always had a great love for fashion, styling and the arts. I started modeling in high school, and over the past few years, I was featured in a handful of movies. Everything in my life has been super exciting lately, but it all comes with hard work and dedication. A major goal of mine, ever since I began modeling, was to always remind other women to be confident every day and to remember to always stay true to who they are.”

Jennie Ross styles AEO bodysuits three ways.

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “When I am on the go, either to work or to an audition, this is my go to look. The First Essentials V-Neck Bodysuit  is my number one choice for a top, because it looks so great on, and it’s insanely comfortable. The Bomber Jacket is an essential, in my opinion. It will help bring your streetwear look to the next level. Pair those with a hi-rise shortie, and you’re ready for a night out in the city.”

Jennie Ross styles AEO bodysuits three ways.

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “Growing up in New England, I’ve found that the seasons change far too quickly. That’s why I always keep a cute cardigan around for those chilly late summer nights. In this look, I am wearing the First Essentials Tie Bodysuit and the Tomgirl Jean. I think everyone should have a go-to outfit that you can easily dress up by adding heels and a great pair of earrings.” Jennie recommends pairing this look with a cozy cardigan for when nights get chilly, too!

10 Must Have Fall Essentials

We’re swooning over all of the new Fall arrivals that hit our website last week and will land in stores on 11.5. We have so many favorite pieces from the updated collection that we had to ask our Styling Manager, Laura, to help us narrow down all of the amazing jeans, sweaters, boots, coats and accessories to her only top ten fall essentials. Laura’s picks have everything from cozy mock neck sweaters to the warmest boyfriend flannels and of course our newest denim collection, Denim X Café. Plus, we can’t forget to mention all of the beautiful color options across all of the Fall’s best styles. Check out Laura’s Top 10 Fall Essentials below, and make the last of the season the best of the season.

10 Must Have Fall Essentials

What we love most about Laura’s picks is that you could definitely mix and match these pieces several ways to make your own mini closet. A drapey tank would pair perfectly under a flannel or denim button down, and for ultimate layering add the cable knit cardigan on top! A cropped sweater and hi-rise destructed denim are on-trend and would look great under a heavier coat like a plaid blazer or cocoon jacket. Finish off any outfit with season-right ankle booties and a long pendant necklace.

Shop Laura’s Must-Have Fall Essentials:
AEO Denim X Café Hi-Rise Jegging
AEO Mock Neck Cropped Sweater
AEO Hooded Cocoon Coat (Coming Soon!)
AEO Oversized Plaid Blazer
AEO Canyon Boyfriend Flannel (Color Coming Soon!)
