How To Style The Camo Crew Sweatshirt With Miss Tara Belle

Camo print gets an update in a washed out, easy fit this Spring, and we’re all about this new take on neutrals. With a mix of olive green, light tan and deep black, you can pair camo with anything from destroyed jeggings and sneakers to heels and a skirt. Go incognito (or not!) in this look that’s part undercover-chic, part major chill. Blogger Tara Belle from Miss Tara Belle is showing you that camo print isn’t just for the woods anymore. Check out how she styled the AEO Camo Crew Sweatshirt, taking this print out in the concrete jungle.

Meet Tara:
“Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Tara Belle always had a name and style that made her stand out in a crowd.  With a distinct love of fashion from a young age, she quite naturally became a buyer and stylist.  After starting her family, she knew her passion could not be contained by only dressing her three sons.  She started her blog, Miss Tara Belle in 2014.  Hardly southern, supremely witty, and always caffeinated, Tara blends high fashion, down home family life, and self-deprecating humor in to her daily musings. ”

What Inspired Tara’s Look:
“Olive is a neutral as far as I’m concerned, and camouflage is basically this year’s leopard (not that leopard is going anywhere), so you can pretty much pair it with anything. I went with my two faves, denim and leather. Leather, because, why not?, and denim, because a jean jacket is the ultimate topper, duh! In the words of my oh-so-clever gf, “Why stand out when you were born to blend in.”

How To Style The 360 Extreme Flex Skinny Jean With The Nathaniel Manual

Comfortable jeans are easier to find than ever (hello, flexible stretch), but the real key is finding comfortable jeans that have the look and feel of rigid denim but with even more comfort to keep up with you all day. Blogger Nathaniel James from The Nathaniel Manual styled the AEO 360 Extreme Flex Skinny Jean by adding a suede bomber jacket for a look that’s totally wearable from errands to hanging out with friends but still looks fresh. Check out Nathaniel’s style inspiration & find everything you need to re-create his look linked below.

I grew up in Connecticut but moved to the city almost 8 years ago to pursue a career in fashion/visual merchandising. Somehow, my career goals ended up melting into my blog & my blog led me to my job today! You can find me snapping pictures down streets or grabbing a bourbon with my friends downtown.”

What Inspired Nathaniel’s Look:
“I styled this pair of jeans with the idea of ease and comfort in mind. I loved how the fit of the jean was extremely stretchy. These jeans were so comfortable, I found myself lounging around the house in them rather than my favorite sweatpants or joggers. With that in mind, I thought, “What would be the easiest thing to throw on if I had to run out of the house right now?” I utilized the classic pairing of a white tee and denim to add as my base. From there, I added white low tops to frame out the denim in white and added a suede baseball jacket/bomber. This helped add contrast while still highlighting the denim. To compliment the overall “sporty-ness” of the whole look, I added a baseball hat. All of these pieces helped contrast the color of the denim to make it pop against black and white. This is an easy go to look that doesn’t require any fuss & anyone can pull off.”

How To Style The Printed Slip Dress With Style Lullaby

The slip dress is one of the year’s most versatile pieces – you can dress it up or down by playing with layers, and whether you’re going for a grunge, boho or classic look, it effortlessly translates into different styles with the help of accessories. Some of our favorite ways to rock a slip dress are over a cropped t-shirt or paired with an oversized cardi. Blogger Sharon Wu from Style Lullaby brought this 90s fave into 2017 with a washed out white jacket and heels. Check out Sharon’s look below featuring the AEO Printed Slip Dress, and if you love her style, you can find her past post here!

Shop the Look: Printed Slip Dress | Denim Jacket

What Inspired Sharon’s Look:
“I’m usually not one for too many prints, but this dress stole my heart the moment I saw it. Firstly, the eyelash lace trim reminded me of the perfect bralette I’ve been looking for to layer under my cozy sweaters! This type of lace is just as flattering on this little number. I can wear an oversized sweater over it, or opt for a knit cardigan… but for this look, I chose to wear AEO’s white denim jacket from last summer’s collection. Since the dress is black, I wanted to bring out the feminine florals & brighten up the look a bit. Lastly, the dress and jacket pairing makes a fairly simple outfit, so I dressed it up with a statement pink bag and nude heels.

Until the sun starts to shine again, I’ll be wearing this dress under my favorite cardigans and sweaters. I love versatile pieces that I can easily style with other loved items in my wardrobe. This one is definitely my latest favorite. Not only is it comfortable to wear and super lightweight, it’s also a fantastic transitional piece from Winter to Spring!”

What Inspired Molly’s Look:
“I’ve seen embroidered bomber jackets walking down the runways of couture fashion brands, but I was struggling to find one for myself that didn’t break the bank…until I partnered with AEO! This bomber is just what I was looking for at a price I could afford. AEO took on this silky, colorful trend perfectly, so I paired my new bomber with distressed denim (always a favorite of mine) and headed to the beach for a fun day of shooting and styling. Hope you guys love! ”

DIY Ugly Sweater For Last Minute Holiday Parties

Holiday party season is in full swing, and there’s always a chance you might get a last minute invite to one this weekend (or already have one on the calendar!). It seems like every year holiday parties require the best (or worst?) ugly sweater attire, so if you’re scrambling for a quick outfit to wear out this weekend, we can help. All you need are a few quick decorations and tools, most of which you probably already have on hand. Keep reading for our step-by-step guide to making a DIY Ugly Sweater for last minute holiday parties.

What You Need: 

1. Find the perfect sweater. We like our Ahhhmazingly Soft Jegging Sweater (pictured) or the Raglan V-Neck Sweater. Bright colors are best to really make your look stand out!

2. Start with some tinsel. Use your hot glue gun or fabric glue to add some fun texture and depth to your sweater. In this case, the crazier it looks, the better!

3. Glue on seasonal patches or pins. Grab your DCI Ugly Sweater Kit or pins, or make your own cutout holiday shapes from thick fabric like felt or fleece. Glue the patches over the tinsel for a 3-D effect.

4. Add your finishing touches. Take your sweater over-the-top and add finishing touches like mirror balls (you could even use ornaments here) and throw a necklace on top – extra points if your sweater lights up!
