A Letter to High-Schoolers: We Need Your Voice!

I can’t imagine how many times you’ve had to listen to people ask about your aspirations and goals after high school. What’s next, Marisa? When do you graduate, Jimmy? What are you planning to do after high school, Jasmine? You’ve heard over and over and over again about college. College is important. College is essential. College, college, college.

Well, sorry to all the Jimmy’s out there, but we agree.

BMR_MainBlogImage

Higher education—heading to a university, trade school, community college, or participating in distance learning—truly affects your future. In today’s economy, a high school diploma just isn’t enough. Students have to reach higher, which is why the Better Make Room initiative is working hard to rally the country around its “North Star” goal — that by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.

The process is long: weeks and weeks of frantically rushing to complete college applications. Pouring your heart and soul into your essays. How many times did you pull an all-nighter? How many times did you order pizza late at night while lying in the middle of your room, trying to come up with the perfect words to say to wow your college prospects? How many times did you get home from school, only to find you hadn’t received your acceptance letter yet?

Then one day, your letter arrived in the mail.

All those late nights and weekends spent studying were worth it. You accomplished something HUGE. Something to be proud of. The next step in your life, in your education, in your future is upon you.

Let’s celebrate together.

College Signing Day is an event supported by the Better Make Room campaign for students like you across the country to celebrate their futures and show off their college acceptance letters. It’s time that we celebrate what you’ve accomplished and how the world #BetterMakeRoom for students like you—on your way to change the world!

Show us your #SigningSelfie—a photo with your acceptance letter, of you in your college gear or just of you really excited about where you’re headed—and post it online on April 26, 2016.

If you post it with the hashtags #BetterMakeRoom and #CollegeSigningDay, it might just show up on American Eagle Outfitter’s Times Square billboard on April 26, where thousands of people walk by everyday!

Wear It Now And Layer: How To Layer With Laura

One of our favorite ways to add interest to a simple outfit is by adding some layers. From the coolest denim jackets to cozy sweatshirts, the best tanks and tees can get a little boost #AEOSTYLE by adding a layer or two on top, especially when the weather is turning and an extra layer is needed.

We teamed up with our Lead Stylist, Laura, to get some layering tips for the upcoming season. Alert: layering doesn’t always mean adding a jacket or sweater (although that’s totally where our minds go first!). Laura showed us that it’s easy to layer with accessories as it is to put a zip-up sweatshirt over your tee!  For each look below, Laura started with a base of jeans, leggings or pants and a tee or sweater. Scroll down to see what she added on top & shop each layered look.

Wear It Now & Layer: Check out our Lead Stylist's tips for layering this season.

LOOK 1:
Take this look from the gym to a coffee date and everywhere in between. Patterned, cropped leggings and a soft jegging tee will get you through your workout. When you’re on the move again, throw a layer on top of your outfit like our essential full zip hoodie.

Wear It Now & Layer: Check out our Lead Stylist's tips for layering this season.

Shop the Look: Soft & Sexy V-Neck Scoop Jegging T-Shirt | Full Zip Hoodie | Crop Hi-Rise Legging

LOOK 2:
Take layering with accessories for a stroll. Make your bag the statement-piece of an outfit by layering it over a sweater and pants. For a season-right look, keep each piece of the outfit within the same color family – here, we stuck with neutral tones of tan and cream.

Wear It Now & Layer: Check out our Lead Stylist's tips for layering this season.

Shop the Look: Cross-Back Pullover Sweater | AEO Sateen X Jegging | Street Level Bucket Bag (Shop Similar)

LOOK 3:
Go old school with destroyed, high-waisted jeans and a denim jacket. We love the too-cool vibes a striped tee tucked into destructed hi-rise denim bring to this look alone. Add a dark black denim jacket as a layering piece to make the look suitable for any adventure, day or night.
