Style Roundup: One Piece Wonders

Easy dressing: we’ve talked about it before. One of our favorite ways to quickly dress & still look super put-together, effortlessly, is to pop on a romper or dress. One piece wonders get the job done: they’re on trend, comfy and are the ultimate way to channel warm weather vibes. It’s time to spring forward in comfy-cute rompers and wear-everywhere dresses in playful polka dots, picnic-perfect gingham, retro florals, stripes and more. We picked a few of our favorite one piece looks styled by YOU – check them out below! We want to see how you’re styling dresses and rompers, so be sure to show us your look (and tell us why you wear it!) by tagging us and using #WeAllCan on Instagram or Twitter.

LOOK 1: Feeling blue? You bet. Our embellished romper mixes nautical stripes and embroidered details for a look that’s warm-weather ready.

LOOK 2: A classic striped pattern with an old-school feel gets a modern update with cutout details in a v-neck romper silhouette. Add some aviators and a necklace (and definitely a popsicle!) to finish your look.

@lovefromlinds styles the AEO Keyhole Front Romper.

LOOK 3: The easy, breezy vibe of this romper makes a great seasonal transition piece. Long belle sleeves are balanced out by the legs-for-days romper cut, and booties keep the outfit grounded.

Look 5: Bare shoulders, chill vibes. Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses have never been more of a must-have. Pair the dress with flats and sunnies.

#WeAllCan: AEO x Feeding America

Since the start of #WeAllCan, we’ve been asking you to tell us how you’re making a difference in your community or making a positive impact in your world. Now, it’s our turn – this season, we’re putting our words into action and partnering with Feeding America over the holidays to provide up to 1,375,000 meals to local food banks across the country (with your help, of course!), and we’re getting out there to volunteer with our local food banks.

Last month, AEO corporate employees volunteered at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank as part of our partnership with Feeding America. We helped the facility sort non-perishable items donated to the food bank before being processed and sent out to local food pantries. We were happy to assist during the especially busy holiday season! Take a look at our volunteer photo diary to see how we spent our time at the food bank & keep reading to see how you can get involved.

“More than 42 million people in the United States face hunger, including 13 million children. We all have a role to play in getting more food to more people. American Eagle’s #WeAllCan initiative ensures every generation can play their part. We are grateful to be included in their holiday promotion.” – Nancy Curby, Interim Senior Vice President of Development at Feeding America

WHY FEEDING AMERICA?

  • 34% of the homeless population in America is under age 24.
  • Persistently poor children are 13% less likely to finish high school and 43% less likely to complete college.

GET TO KNOW FEEDING AMERICA

  • Feeding America is the third largest charity in the U.S.
  • *$1 is able to provide 11 meals for those in need through the Feeding America network.
  • Millennials ages 21-30 are the demographic group most likely to say they intend to support Feeding America.

HOW WE’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE:

  • Thru 12.25, AEO will donate up to 1,375,000 meals to local food banks across the country.*
  • Associates will be hosting internal food drives in stores and delivering food to their local food pantries in January.

Checking labels and expiration dates is an important part of sorting food received.

Filling boxes with a variety of packages (cans, boxes, bags) help to evenly source food for the pantries.

Each box shipped to food pantries must weigh 30 lbs., so volunteers are equipped with scales to make the job easier.
