Meet Kassala:
“Hi, I’m Kassala. I’m a 23-year-old from Montana – a small town in the middle of nowhere. I recently made the big move to New York city to turn my passions into a career. I love being able to share my life with everyone over social media through fashion, photography, and traveling.”

What Inspired Kassala’s Look:
“It’s my favorite time of year, the weather is changing. I love fall and winter fashion. I was inspired by the weather to dress up cozy pieces. The flannel is perfect for staying warm and being stylish. I have a very minimal style all together, so I styled the plaid button down with black skinny jeans, black ankle boots. I added a leather jacket to give the look a little more edge.”

Your go-to cold-weather #AEOSTYLE essential is back & better than ever. In softer fabrics & the best fits, it’s time to add flannels and plaids back into your look. We want to help you get the most out of your flannel shirt this season, so we rounded up a few of our favorite ways to style them for girls and guys.

Around the Waist: Bring the 90s to 2016. Keep a flannel tied around your waist as a cool way to bring color to your outfit – plus, it’s right there in case you need an extra layer. We like this look with a bomber jacket on top.

Bundled Up: If you’re going for an easy way to wear flannel, just button it up! This tried-and-true option doesn’t have to be complicated. Finish off the look with a cozy beanie.

Layer It: Layers are flannel’s best friend. Instead of pulling on a jacket, layer your flannel with a cardigan or sweater. This is a great way to add some depth and texture to your look.

Over a T-Shirt: Go for a classic look by throwing your flannel over a time-tested tee. This season is made for layering – and so are flannels.

Under a Vest: Take your flannel outside by popping on a warm vest – puffer, sherpa, the choice is yours! If the vest is neutral, add some color to the look with a vibrant flannel.

Buttoned Up: Go from relaxed to buttoned up… by buttoning it up! This look will take you from hanging with friends to meeting the parents this season.

Mix Prints: Be adventurous with your #AEOSTYLE. Make sure one color threads throughout all of your pieces (hint: it’s easiest to mix patterns when one piece is a neutral. A bold print contrasts best with a busy flannel.

How To Style The Vintage Hi-Rise Jean With Blake Von D

Things we’re still obsessed with: the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean. Since we last styled this denim fit, the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean has made its way to an even deeper place in our heart as we’re discovering new washes & ways to wear them. This month, two-tone denim is everywhere, and we’re loving it in this straight-leg, cropped look. With just enough of a 90s vibe, this jean is super versatile and can be dressed up for a night out with friends or down for weekend hangouts. Blake, the blogger behind Blake Von D, is showing you how to master the tricky two-tone look below.

Meet Blake:
Blake is a lawyer and digital influencer. It was during this time that she really began to make a name for herself in the world of blogging, all while earning a Master’s Degree from NYU. Not one to settle, in 2012, she decided to pursue her life long dream of becoming an attorney and enrolled in law school at Tulane University.

Throughout all of her academic endeavors, I have continued to use her influence as a blogger to champion the causes most near to her heart — specifically the empowering of women in all their various walks of life and the celebration of women of color across all professions, but especially in the field of fashion.”

What Inspired Blake’s Look:
“When it comes to denim, you can never have enough pairs of comfortable jeans. That said, it doesn’t mean they all have to look same. It’s okay to add a little variety and interest. Enter these two-toned vintage hi-rise jeans!

They’re a really fun pair of jeans and they add a bit of visual detail to any outfit. I also love that they’re cropped at the ankle. (That’s kind of my thing these days with denim.) The fraying is a nice detail as well.

I paired them with a simple black turtleneck, sneakers, shades and a color-blocked coat. It’s casual but still makes a statement. I wore this look shopping, and I had so many sales associates stop and compliment me. With all of the colors and lines, your eyes aren’t really sure where to go first. But you can be sure that wherever they land, you’re going to like what you see.”

What Inspired J’waye Look:
“It’s always hard for me to find a pair of jeans that fit and feel comfortable when I’m wearing them. I’ve always supported American Eagle’s jeans, and once they released their Flex/Denim line, I was ecstatic. The new Flex gives me freedom to do any and everything, while keeping me looking stylish and feeling comfortable!

I decided to match my Extreme Flex Slim Straight denim with a basic white tee, black and white sneakers and a beanie. To add a little more edge to the look I took out my leather jacket, making this the best outfit to wear on the go while still looking cool and stylish!

How To Style The Ahhhmazingly Soft Mock Neck Sweater with So Sage Blog

Break out your chunky knits, turtlenecks and oversized cardis, because it’s officially sweater weather. Early Fall is an opportune time to play with different ways to style sweaters, thanks to up-and-down temps. Blogger Sage Coralli from So Sage Blog took one of our softest-ever sweaters from the latest collection and made trend-right, open-stitch top the statement piece of her monochrome look. Check out Sage’s outfit below featuring the the AEO Ahhhmazingly Soft Mock Neck Sweater & get some Fall-ready styling tips to for the Mock Neck Sweater.

So Sage Blog styles the Ahhhmazingly Soft Mock Neck Sweater

Meet Sage:
So Sage Blog is a culmination of Sage’s vision, dreams, aspirations, fears, insecurities, risks and above all, her passions.  She believes that a lack of passion is fatal. Similar to my style, she make life choices based on pure emotion. Am she impulsive?  Absolutely.  Spontaneous? 100%. Unpredictable, free spirited, border-line crazy? This is part of who she is, who she’ll always be. And quite frankly, if you ask anyone that knows her… that’s ‘So Sage.’

Sage does’t use definitive words for describing her style because the way she dresses is constantly evolving and typically a reflection of how she feels at that moment in time. Her go-to look? A luxury staple paired with accessible finds, but above all else..comfort. Sage enjoys challenging and questioning the rules of fashion because, she’s just not a rule following type of girl. Sage hopes to in some way inspire you to live on the edge, try to new trends, break the rules, live a little, and feel that you too can express yourself through the clothes you wear.”

What Inspired Sage’s Look:
“If there’s something I’ve learned to fully embraced in my closet, it’s definitely sweaters. For the longest time I didn’t like wearing sweaters because I thought they were all itchy and too bulky/thick. I would usually opt for a coat & multiple layers to keep warm in the past, but after building up a collection over the last few years, I have a nice little sweater section in my closet. I have a decent mix of both high and low end sweaters, but regardless of the cost there’s something so chic & classic about a sweater. I particularly love the mock neck sweater because I think it adds such a chic flare to any look and the hair tuck is an added bonus.

I recently got this soft mock neck sweater, and I’m obsessed. I love that this one is open knit so that you have breathing room…and if your temperatures are anything like they are still here in Texas, you would appreciate too. This color gray is so versatile and can be worn with practically anything. Typically I would pair a mock neck sweater with some skinny jeans & heels/booties or boyfriend jeans & sneakers like I did in this past post. Since Texas can’t decide if it’s Summer or Fall yet, I threw it over my t-shirt dress before dinner for the cooler evening and went for an all-gray-everything look.”
