How To Wear The Keyhole Swing Dress With Truelane

As August winds down, it’s time to start thinking about incorporating fall fashion back into your #AEOSTYLE. Our Keyhole Swing Dress is the perfect late summer getup because not only does it come in hues perfect for fall,  it also has a beachy silhouette that screams summertime. Chelsea from Truelane transitions her summer style effortlessly by pairing our dress back to a cropped trench and black boots. Check out her #AEOSTYLE inspiration below.

Meet Chelsea:
“I’m Chelsea, a style blogger and writer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was born in Seattle, which I think inspired my love for classic style and dark colors, but being out in the Midwest has helped my wardrobe loosen up a little…even though rain is still my favorite kind of weather. I’m big on coffee and following dreams; I started blogging five years ago for kicks, and it’s become a full-time passion and career for me. You can find me online at www.truelane.co and on social media @truelane!”

Truelane+AEO Keyhole Swing DressWhat Inspired Chelsea’s Look:
“I love having contrast in my wardrobe. Wearing fun bohemian pieces like the Keyhole Swing Dress toned down by edgier accessories keeps the visual interest flowing in a look. A chic cropped trench and dark boots add a sleek touch to the free-spirited vibes of the dress and bag. I love this dress because it’s just as easy to style up for a summer festival with a fringe bag, lace-up gladiator sandals, and floppy hat!”

Claudia from Human Hanger makes an effortless transition into fall by pairing her Denim X Jegging with a fitted tank and light jacket.

Meet Claudia:
“Hi, I’m Claudia, the girl behind the smoke and mirrors of Human Hanger. I am a personal style and beauty blogger living in Los Angeles, California. I graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in communication. When I’m not blogging I can be found crafting, brunching, or snuggling my wiener dogs.”

What Inspired Claudia’s Look:
Distressed denim is a wardrobe staple this fall, making it easy to look effortlessly cool as you transition into the new season.

How To Wear The Striped Baja Hoodie with Unkept Gentleman

Our Baja Striped Hoodie is made for 24/7 #AEOSTYLE. With a bold and textured design, this is an upgrade to your go-to hoodie. Travis from Unkept Gentleman pairs our beach-ready hoodie back to distressed jeans and a pair of  vintage boots for the perfect mix of boho and beach-inspired #AEOSTYLE.

Meet Travis:
Travis White is a native Texan who grew up in Houston. He strives to help men look and feel their best. He loves to do this through blogging about style and personal development. He believes the two go hand in hand, through dressing well and having confidence. He portrays these two aspects on his blog Unkept Gentleman. Travis loves to mix and match different trends finding a unique style that serves to inspire others.

What inspired Travis’s look:
“Mixing different trends always inspires my look. Even though I love to dress in timeless classic looks, mixing different styles lets me take some risks.  Whether it is dapper and urban, or athletic and casual wear I am always looking for ways to push the envelope and mix it up. For this specific look, I mixed vintage and boho with the beach inspired hoodie, lightly stressed washed denim, and stressed leather boots.  I think it makes for a cool contrast and mixes it up a little bit. I love hoodies with print because it can be the main piece while everything else on the outfit can be simple.”

AEO Back to School Essentials

Back to school: you love to hate it, but we love to love it. Why wouldn’t we? The new school year is the perfect time for a wardrobe overhaul and a brand new #OOTD, so we’re showing you some of our favorite closet essentials transformed into back to school looks that will own the classroom.

Girls:

Back To School Essentials 2015

Boho Top
This season is all about vintage inspired looks. Our AEO Embroidered Peasant Shirt will turn heads with its eye-catching details and breezy feel. Bonus? It’s light and airy, which means it’s perfect for days when the summer heat is sticking around, but it’s still appropriate for class.

Washed-Out Jeggings
The end of summer brings the end of shorts season, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck wearing the same old jeans. Give your look a little edge in our Super Stretch Jegging in a washed out color. Slim fit pants are the perfect way to balance out your outfit, especially when you’re wearing a flowing top.

Crossbody Bag
Step up your bag game this school year with the AEO Leather Fringe Crossbody Purse. Sturdy leather straps make carrying books comfortable, and the fun fringe will complement any outfit.

Long Necklaces
Even though we know and love the bold, bib necklace, we’re challenging you to be different this year and wear a long, delicate necklace instead. Our AEO Turquoise Fan Bolo Necklace will add some glam to your look without overpowering the outfit because less is sometimes more.

Statement Rings
You’re writing all day, so why not add a little fun to your fingers? Stacking rings is on trend right now, and we love piling as many on as possible. Our AEO Turquiose & Triangle Midi Ring set adds a pop of color and unexpected placement above the knuckle. Paired with the AEO White Stone Ring, your accessories totally make the grade.

Bold Shoes
Slip on heels are one of our favorite looks to help transition from summer sandals to fall boots, so we’re happy to see the trend back again in 2015. The Swedish HasBeens Slip In Super High is no exception. Make a statement in super-high, retro shoes when you strut into the classroom.

Original Fragrance
Let’s get real: back to school is one of the most important times to amp up your confidence levels. When you’re confident, you’re able to make the grades, handle the stress that comes with the school year and make a name for yourself. Our AE Me Fragrance for Her will give you the boost you need to be yourself and embrace your strengths.

Guys:

Back To School Essentials 2015

Denim Jacket
Early fall mornings can get a little chilly. Plus, with class, study tables, football games and nights out, you’re busy and need a jacket that fits your lifestyle. We love the timeless look of the AEO Denim Jacket, especially over a button down shirt.

Small Details
Guys can accessorize, too. Keep your look rugged while adding some texture with the AEO Climbing Rope Wrap Bracelet. We also love a fedora or wide brim hat, especially for coffee with friends on the weekend.

AEO Printed Button Down Shirt
If you haven’t invested in a button down shirt, do it now.  The AEO Printed Button Down Shirt will become your staple top for the school year, from class presentations to date nights. We love it paired with a destructed, slim pant for a mix of edge and prep.

Destructed Denim
Everyone needs a great pair of denim in their closet, and our Slim Straight Jean will be your new favorite fit. With just the right amount of destroyed detailing, you can make these jeans work all school year.

Athletic Sneaker
Meet your denim’s new best friend: the New Balance 565 Sneaker. Long gone are the days when you thought you couldn’t pair skinny jeans with this style – pull the look together with a button down for a cool campus vibe.

Colorblock Backpack
Okay, we know – sometimes studying is boring. That doesn’t mean your backpack has to be boring, too. Get noticed in the library this year when you carry your books in a bright backpack like the AEO X State Backpack.
