AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: THE PONCHO

When we say that our Patterned Sweater Poncho is the perfect piece to layer over every fall to winter look, we mean it. Between it’s cozy wide ribbed cowl neck, earth tone hues and tonal pattern, what’s not to love?

We asked bloggers Shannon from Upbeat Soles and Nifesimi from Skinny Hipster to show us how they style this must-have item below.

Meet Shannon:
 I am a born and raised Florida girl that is a medical professional by day, fashion blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are parents to a crazy Aussie mix and kitty. I created Upbeat Soles as a way to express my fashion juices that are held in by wearing scrubs most of the days. I also believe that fashion doesn’t need to cost an arm and leg and that you can look fabulous on any budget!

What inspired Shannon’s Look:
During Fall everyone wants to be comfy, but yet still stylish and this amazing poncho is just that! I have been loving that the poncho has made a comeback because is doesn’t get much cozier! I really wanted to play up the Earth tones of the poncho,  so I paired it with these gorgeous taupe, suede boots and broke up the colors with a dark wash AEO skinny jean. Simple, cozy, but yet still chic!

What inspired Nifesimi’s Look:
One of the items I love wearing during cold seasons are ponchos.  They work well on all body types and really keeps me warm.  I took a break from heels and dressed the poncho down by wearing a denim on denim look with moccasins.

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: The Jogger

Whether you’re staying home or traveling to be with family this Thanksgiving, our Jogger is going to be your new best friend. Between the relaxed fit and drawstring waist, you’ll be thankful you opted for this go-to pant after your second helping of turkey and stuffing.

Bloggers, Ryan from Fashionisto Diaries and Makayla from Fashionably Kay, show us how they style our Jogger for the holiday.

Meet Ryan:
I started Fashionisto Diaries in high school as a way to keep in touch with friends. Now, I am able to share my style with friends all around the world! During my sophomore year of high school I interviewed Tim Gunn. After that interview, I knew I wanted to interview more people and tell them my opinion on fashion. My style is casual preppy. I feel it can be replicated and that’s what I want. I believe fashion is achievable, but style is something you learn. Fashionisto Diaries is my journey of understanding my own personal style and everything else that happens along the way.

What Inspired Ryan’s Look:
I wanted to go outside my comfort zone for this look! I’ve really never worn flannel before and I don’t wear a lot of colored pants. This was the perfect start and I believe this look came together without looking to “christmas-y.” I wore this look around the city, but you can wear it anywhere. The flannel kept me super warm and the joggers allowed me to be active during the day, while looking chic.

What Inspired Kay’s Look:
This outfit was inspired by a cozy city look. I love a comfortable yet chic style that can take you from running errands to lounging around at home. I paired it with an AEO sweater to create a black and white look, which happens to be my favorite. These joggers are perfect for it all! IMG_1947 (2)
