10 for 10: Ten Styles, Ten Ways

January’s forecast: hues of blue! This month is about celebrating the blue year and incorporating denim, chambray and shades of blue into your look. We asked our Styling Manager, Laura, to pick out some of her favorite pieces from our latest collection to create a mini capsule wardrobe that speaks to the indigo trend and takes all the hard work out of putting together your own looks. Not sure what a capsule wardrobe is? We’ll fill you in: basically, a capsule wardrobe is a few key pieces of clothing (think skirt, denim, a few shirts, a sweater, shoes) that you can mix and match to create different outfits. It’s a simple way to streamline your closet and your look but still keep all of the #AEOSTYLE.

Because we’re working with a few similar shades, creating cohesive looks with several pieces in similar color families is easy! Laura chose pieces that could be dressed up or down, especially when paired with the right shoe. We’re using a casual, cool lace up sneaker and a heeled mule as our shoes of choice. Versatile, basic bottoms like our destroyed Denim X Cafe Jegging and a chambray skirt will go with virtually any top, but keep one thing in mind: neutral colors are your BFF here. Tanks make a great first layer or standalone top. Second layers can be anything from button down shirts to sweaters – this is where you can be playful! For some variety, Laura chose to add a our Cutout Shoulder Sweatshirt to use as a top on its own as well.

Check out all ten pieces Laura pulled and keep scrolling to see how we’re building ten looks with ten products!10 Styles, 10 Ways
