Labor Day Outfit Guide

With fall right around the corner, Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to debut trends from the upcoming season. Although we’ll miss summer, we’re excited about vintage vibes and heritage prints, so naturally, we had to pull some of our favorite fall pieces like suede clogs and plaid button downs. We love the carefree contrast that shorter summer hemlines bring to these looks. Your only job this weekend? Soak up the last days of summer.

Girls
Stay cool at picnics this weekend in a breezy embroidered peasant dress. Dress up your outfit with suede clogs, one of our favorite shoes from the upcoming season, and add a fringe crossbody bag and stacked necklaces for a boho vibe.

How To Wear The AEO Sateen X Jegging With Diamonds For Dimes

The AEO Sateen X Jegging is one of our most loved fits. The Sateen X line is made with low twist yarn that enhances the natural softness of our Extreme Jegging. Kelly from Diamonds For Dimes adds a bohemian flare to her #AEOSTYLE by pairing our buff pink jegging back to a seventies inspired top and accessories. Get to know Kelly and her inspiration behind her look below.

Meet Kelly: 
“My name is Kelly Schneider, I’m 23 years old, and from Boston! I’m a recent grad of Providence College and am now working in digital marketing for a jewelry company in Rhode Island. The first year out of college really hits you in terms of expenses. I created Diamonds for Dimes as an outlet to help other girls find fashionable, quality pieces for a great price!”

How to wear AEO Sateen X Jegging

What Inspired Kelly’s Look:
“The end of August and beginning of September can be a tricky time when it comes to fashion. It’s still warm out, but we typically gravitate towards fall pieces because that’s what’s being pushed in stores. That’s why I love the Buff Pink Jegging—it’s the perfect transitional piece from summer to fall! Obviously, any shade of pink is a must for summer, but because these jeggings are more of a dusty rose color they work perfectly with a more muted color palette for fall. And don’t even get me started on how comfortable American Eagle jeggings are—they’re a dream come true!”
