Tanks, camis and halters are must-haves for the summer, available with so many different but simple embellishments that aren't overstated - sequins, studs, jewels, embroidery and crochet details. Or you can skip the embellishments and go for a plain boyfriend tank.
I have always had a hard time finding shorts. I still have casual pairs of shorts from AE that are still favorites of mine but it's time to get some new shorts. I definitely want to try out the denim and linen bermuda shorts ($39.50).
I loved everything I got from the American Eagle Outfitters preview, including a boyfriend shirt ($39,.50) that has a long, loose fit on me, perfect for me to wear belted or as a sleepshirt, with the sleeves rolled up. I can't wait to wear the San Jose floppy orange/purple straw hat ($24.50)to the beach along with my AE embroidered tote. The hat looks fabulous with my sunglasses! Don't forgot the accessories! Rhinestone beaded cotton/metal braid bracelets ($15.50) look great when you layer two or three of them.
I also love what aerie has to offer this summer. Aerie offers everything from underwear (cute tangas, boyshorts and boybriefs) swimwear and athletic wear to tops and dresses. White button front dresses and lace mini skirts are lightweight and comfortable.
I absolutely love the aerie grey cropped graphic pants I got at the preview. I am not accustomed to wearing sweat pants but these are soooo comfortable and soft! They are one of my favorites, perfect for lounging.
American Eagle and aerie's sizing fits well, especially for a petite frame. The S/P sizing is perfect for me.
Look out for aerie Botanicals, a new skincare and makeup line that will make its way into select American Eagle Outfitters stores. Hand cream, body butter, body butter and body wash will be available in three fragrances - violet leaf lychee, fresh citrus + papaya and apple blossom + cucumber. Lip glosses and eye shadow palletes will also be available. Fruity scents are my favorite - so I can't wait to get my hands on these!
