#AEOSTYLE: Transitional Weather

#AEOSTYLE: Transitional Weather

Some of our favorite American Eagle Outfitters pieces were featured by a variety of fashion bloggers last week. They all seemed to have the same theme—how to deal with the Polar Vortex. Sometimes it can be a challenge to look stylish in the cold, since pretty pastels and fun floral prints get lost underneath chunky coats and cold-weather accessories. We’re finding inspiration on how to get the most wear out of our warm-weather clothes.

Whether it’s 50 or 5 degrees where you are, you can make our spring sweaters, jeans and jackets work. All three are great layering pieces and essentials to any winter or spring outfit. A boyfriend jean jacket adds an extra layer of warmth to a look while making a pencil skirt and sweater more casual. Boy Jeans are spring’s fit of the moment – a destroyed wash can be paired with heels or booties for an effortlessly cool look.

Take inspiration from Refinery29 and blogger Oh So Glam and show us how you’re wearing spring style now with #AEOSTYLE on Instagram and Twitter for the chance to see your photos on AE.com.

What does your job entail at AEO?

As Style Director, I oversee all styling for the American Eagle Outfitters brand from national advertising, press events, e-commerce, social media… you name it.


What does your job entail at AEO?

A day in PR is always different. We’re responsible for creating brand awareness in fashion!.We work closely with editors, bloggers, celebs and various TV outlets to get our product out there. We get to partner a lot with social media which is fun and host events to showcase our new collections every season. It’s so exciting when you see an AEO or Aerie product in a magazine or a celebrity rocking their AEO jeans and know you played a part in that!


What does your job entail at AEO?

Social media tends to keep me involved in a bit of everything from community management to blog writing, picking filters on Instagram to being on location taking pictures behind the scenes at photo shoots. My favorite part? Tweeting with our Aerie girls @Aerie!

Real Talk Interview with Jill M. of Pittsburgh, PA!

Real Talk Interview with Jill M. of Pittsburgh, PA!

To celebrate our recent launch of Aerie REAL we wanted to take the opportunity to feature a few fantastic women who embody #AerieREAL. Our first Real Talk interview is with Jill M., originally from Altoona, PA, but currently living in Pittsburgh, PA and rocking her position as store manger in the Southside Works Aerie Store. Learn more about Jill and what #AerieREAL means to her, her must-have Aerie item, and what inspires her below!

Real Talk Interview with Jill M. of Pittsburgh, PA!

Jill and two of her Aerie girls at work, Morgan and Catie!

Hi, Jill! Thanks for joining us. 🙂 What is your favorite thing about being Store Manager?

Being able to work with and influence girls that are in collage, especially with the the start of Aerie REAL. I feel like having confidence in yourself is important at this age and I love being a part of building that.

What does #AerieREAL mean to you?

#AerieREAL is being a strong and confident woman…even though naturally we have scars, freckles, back fat, arm hair, and cellulite. And guess what!? Aerie is saying that’s okay and that they can relate!

What makes you Aerie REAL?

I’m REAL because I have pale skin (I even have to wear sunscreen in the winter) and I have a lot of freckles!

Real Talk Interview with Jill M. of Pittsburgh, PA!

Jill and her family. 🙂

What is currently playing on your iTunes?

I’m always stuck on “I and Love and You” by the Avett Brothers, anything Fleetwood Mac, and an awesome up and coming band Ancient Ear.

If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you go? 

Mykonos, Greece – it looks so beautiful and serene!

Real Talk Interview with Jill M. of Pittsburgh, PA!

Jill and her mom, Sue!

Where do you see yourself in 3 years? 

I would love to be working with American Eagle Outfitters still in the corporate offices or in California! Why California? The warmth!!

Real Talk Interview with Jill M. of Pittsburgh, PA!

Jill, her boyfriend, Edward, and her two adorable pups, Che and Bruce!

Agreed. Pittsburgh right now is not the warmest place on Earth! Speaking of sunshine, what’s your favorite new arrival at Aerie for spring? 

I love the new Nina Bra! It has a really great fit and I love how the  air is all the way through the cup so it looks nice under a t-shirt.

Any quotes you live by? 

“Come in with a smile!” and fake it ’til you make it!”

We love those both! Thank you so much for joining us Jill! Show us how YOU’RE Aerie Real and tag your photos with #AerieREAL for a chance to be featured on Aerie.com!
