AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: MOTO JACKET

Whether your style is edgy or classic, our Fashion Jackets can help complete your #OOTD. We’re loving the mix of rustic wool plaid and edgy moto styling of our Plaid Moto Jacket and the classic look of our Faux Shearling Moto Jacket.

Check out how bloggers Cara from A Fashion Love Affair and Lauren from Fashionably Lo styled our two favorite Moto Jackets below.

What Inspired Cara’s Outfit:
I fell in love with this jacket, it is the perfect combo between cozy and cool, pairing perfectly with torn denim as it does with a long maxi dress. I chose to style the jacket with black jeggings and black knee high boots (loving this trend!) to really pull the focus of the look to the jacket.  The jacket is a great way to easily pull color and print into your look with just one piece!AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: MOTO JACKET

What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
Winter in the south means hot one day, cold the next (literally) so I have become a huge fan of layers. This moto Jacket is the perfect piece to layer on top of a sweater dress with a faux fur snood for a colder night and can easily be worn with jeans a tee for something a little more casual for one of these 70 degree days.

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: QUILTED VEST

It’s our mission to make sure you look cool while keeping warm this winter. How you might ask? Well, our Quilted Vest is a great place to start. With its diamond-quilted fabric and mock neck collar, your winter blues will be a thing of the past.

We asked bloggers McArthur from Daily Mister and Chimed from NxStyle to show us how they style this cold weather must-have.

Meet McArthur:
McArthur (mostly known as Mac) is a millennial menswear blogger based out of New York. His blog, Daily Mister, was created for guys everywhere to get a dose of style and obscure pop culture references.

What Inspired McArthur’s Look:
When it comes to my personal style I love to blur the lines between dandyism and streetwear. While I easily could’ve gone in a traditional route and paired the vest with a sweater I decided to dress it up with this cotton blazer from American Eagle. One of my favorite things to do is style garments in completely different ways and I can’t wait to see how I’ll be wearing this essential piece will fit in my wardrobe throughout the season.

What Inspired Chimed’s Outfit:
The main inspiration of the outfit was the fall and spring time weather where it is too hot to wear full on jackets but its too chilly to go with just shirt and tie. Adding a puffer vest to your everyday outfit not only gives you an extra style points but it immediately puts you in the category of those in the GQ magazine. This is a perfect way to help you stand out in the grey crowd of chilly weather in a stylish and work appropriate way.
