Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

Crochet all day every day! Whether its crochet Tops, Bottoms or Swim, we’ve got you covered. 

Beach babe Elana Loo talks about one of her favorite trends and what makes her #AerieREAL below! Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

“Since being a young girl, I don’t really remember being obsessed with new trends or the latest fads – but instead, I always wanted to acquire a sense of style that was timeless, classic + effortless (if that’s attainable & you’ve figured it out – be sure to let me in on your secret). Despite this, each year we’re told what the latest, greatest styles are – sure, I love the new cuts, fabrics, etc. but I don’t completely change my style to fit what’s trending, instead I find myself turning back to what makes me feel confident and something that flatters my figure.”

Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

This Aerie Suit does just that! (Practically every single one of their suits does *major heart eyes*) The crochet detailing is a nod to the 70’s which is prevalent this year, but the color palette is something that’s very true to my aesthetic and pairing the bikini with a classic white button down and a relaxed, floppy hat makes this look lean more towards classic. I tend to fill my suitcase with easy, go-to outfits like this! Perfect for beach lounging if you ask me. Of course, to and from the beach, I love to rock a pair of jean shorts like these over the suit!”

“Now, why I am overjoyed to be putting pen to paper (or in this case, fingers to keyboard) in collaboration with Aerie + American Eagle is that they are the brands that have carried me along my style journey since adolescence. I always have found pieces that express my style and now, I am 100% behind them because of the values that come along with #AerieREAL. Embracing yourself as a natural woman, no matter what size, is vital to our happiness, success and confidence as women.”

“See, the thing is, just as you probably have – I’ve struggled with whole-heartedly accepting my body and my flaws. I’m not a glamorous gal; I proudly work from home (mostly in my bikini), don’t wash or style my hair on the daily and yes, I have cellulite. Everyday, I see perfectly made up beauties with perfect curls, lipstick on and impeccable outfits – and I can easily sink into the feeling that my reality is lack-luster, that I’m not as beautiful. But here’s the real reality, it is my life and it is beautiful. It’s worth living, exploring and enjoying. This is true for all of our lives. My every day doesn’t look perfect, but I work hard to chase my goals and live an intentional life. I am proud of my curvy, bold self – flaws, scars, outspoken personality and all. These things don’t define who I am, but instead what I am putting out into the world does. So today, I proudly partner with Aerie to share my un-retouched photos – my unedited, real self; the same person you’ll see working from a coffee shop, grabbing groceries or hangin’ at the beach any given Sunday. My soul is beautiful, my body is beautiful – I am beautiful. And so are you. So rock that bikini, be proud of your scars, your curves + your uniqueness! Be you – authentically and unapologetically.”

Our Aerie Stylist’s Summer Checklist

Our Aerie Stylist’s Summer Checklist

From cute bikinis to the perfect coverup, our expert stylist has picked out all the beachy looks and pieces you’ll be living in this summer!


Wild Daisies


We’re excited to rock the Daisy Multiway in candy-colored hues under our tanks & strapless dresses! (Paired with our new Mini Cheeky fit in wild prints because, summer’s here! Go bold!)

Perky & Pretty


These crochet shorts are the perfect, pretty layer to top off a tropical bikini! We love that this suit has a fun, splashy print and just the right amount of perk. Don’t forget your most important accessory – your favorite summer tunes! Our Aerie Summer Refresh Playlist will be the soundtrack to our sunny days ahead!

Jungle Cat


Me-OW! You’ll rule the beach in this show stopping suit. While you’re getting your beach reading on, have our Woven Raglan T-shirt on hand to keep sunburns at bay.

Beachy & Boho


This laid-back look is our go-to style for an easy, breezy summer day. Throw it over your favorite Aerie bikini and hit the pool! We’ll be using this straw bag to tote all our summertime necessities.

Fruity Cutie


How you like them (pine)apples? We’re seeing fruity prints everywhere this summer, and the high neck design is right on trend.

Summer Necessity


We like our swim with a little coverage, and a lot of lift! It’s a pretty poolside look, but don’t be a wallflower…this suit will stay put through any summertime activities that come your way! Beach volleyball game, anyone?
