stay golden

 

Top off your outfit with warm gold and rust colors.

One of our fave looks for this season is rust and gold-colored tops paired with a simple but classic pair of black jeans. You might be thinking this color palette makes more sense for fall than your next party, but we maintain a rich pop of color is perfect for any get-together this time of year. Rust and gold tops keep things cozy when you’re heading to grandma’s house or going out with friends to celebrate the season. They’re versatile enough to mix and match with what you already have in your closet and add dimension to your wardrobe, too. Pair them with your favorite American Eagle high-waisted jeggings, booties and a belt for a fresh but warm look you’ll love.

Keep it cozy, keep it warm.

There’s really nothing better (or easier) than throwing on a cozy cardigan or jacket and heading out for an ice-skating trip, a family dinner or festive school party. Not only can you keep the cold out, you’ll look pretty chic with sherpa tops and outerwear. This cozy look can be achieved a million ways, but our favorites include layering with other AE women’s tops like hoodies, long sleeve t-shirts or cute button up shirts. Wear them with a pair of high-waisted Mom Jeans for a cool vibe. AE sherpa is super soft and is the perfect second layer for your next holiday outing.

You can never have too much plaid.

This holiday party outfit starts with one of our favorite designs – plaid. Plaid is one of our fave holiday styles because it goes with just about anything! Ahhmazingly Soft plaid flannel shirts, cozy sleep leggings, plaid socks & more. Nothing screams festive party like a cute flannel outfit. For this look we’ve paired an Ahhmazingly Soft Flannel Boyfriend Shirt with a denim skirt for a cozy but cute look. Complete the outfit with tights (we like fleece lined ones to stay warm) and a cool moto jacket for a super cute put-together look perfect for the next time you’re gathering with friends to party. Don’t let the cold keep you down – layer up and celebrate!
