How To Style The Cable Knit Beanie and Heritage Plaid Blanket Scarf With Lauren LeBouef

Winter is coming and that mean’s it’s time to bundle up for those colder temps! Whether you’re into hats, scarves, or parkas or ponchos, we’ve got cold weather accessories to keep you stylish all season long. Our friend Lauren is helping us get ready for winter in our Cable Knit Beanie and Heritage Plaid Blanket Scarf. Get to know Lauren and the inspiration behind her look below.


Meet Lauren: Lauren is a San Diego based model. Lauren has a strong passion for living a healthy life style, makeup, and fashion. She is inspired when people achieve their goals and when others are able to pursue what they love! Her wish is to bring positivity to people lives through her social media outlets such as her Instagram. She hopes to show others how they too, can use the gifts they were given to inspire those around them.


What Inspired Lauren’s Look: For me, living in Southern California the winters can be pretty inconsistent when it comes to being chilly or little on the warmer side throughout the days and months. This is exactly why scarves and beanies are a perfect items to have in your closet, no matter where you live! Whether you live where its already snowing or live somewhere like me where it’s chilly in the mornings but can possibly warm up throughout the day, its nice to have something to easily take of and put back on. I love this blanket scarf from american eagle, not only because of its extreme softness but also the fact that I can wrap it around my neck in so many different ways! Its also great to bundle up in it throughout the day! If it seem to get a little warmer toward I can easily take it off or even style it in a different way! Blanket scars like this one can be styled in many ways! Both of these items can be warn with any kind of top, I prefer some kind of fall/winter colored long sleeve shirt, or you can also of course wear a cute coat or jacket. I the paired it with my favorite black jeans and some lace up combat boots. If you’re wanting an even more “girly” style you can throw on a pair of cute tights and a circle skirt for a more flirty vibe!

As the seventies inspired trend continues, we’ve been seeing Poncho’s in every day #AEOSTYLE. Poncho’s are great layering piece that take your style to the next level. Chelsea from True Lane channels her free-spirited vibe with our Southwestern Fringe Poncho. Get to know Chelsea and the inspiration behind her look below.

Truelane x American Eagle poncho 3

Meet Chelsea: “I’m Chelsea, a style blogger and writer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was born in Seattle, which I think inspired my love for classic style and dark colors, but being out in the Midwest has helped my wardrobe loosen up a little…even though rain is still my favorite kind of weather. I’m big on coffee and following dreams; I started blogging five years ago for kicks, and it’s become a full-time passion and career for me. You can find me online at and on social media @truelane!”

Truelane x American Eagle poncho 6

What Inspired Chelsea’s Look: “Who doesn’t love any excuse to wear a sweater that resembles a blanket? This striking Southwestern Fringe Poncho is right up my alley, especially in my favorite color to wear: black. My winter wardrobe means piling on lots of different textures, so I kept the tones monochromatic with my favorite shades of grey. This piece makes a statement on its own, so pairing it with skinny jeans and flats made for an easy look perfect for running errands. Black Friday shopping anyone?”
