Check out our list of top 10 artists that we’re excited to jam out to in 2015 and get ready to hear them on future AEO playlists. Still reminiscing on 2014?

  1. Kill Them With Colour. Why are they on our list? With energetic sound and an upbeat vibe, they’ll have you dancing all night long.
  2. Leon Bridges. With similar sound to Sam Cooke, Leon’s soulful voice and smooth guitar will have you hooked in no time flat.
  3. Grace Mitchell. Don’t let her age fool you. At 16, Grace is taking the music world by storm. We’d be surprised if 2015 wasn’t her year.
  4. Lost Boy Crow. With a sound similar to Vampire Weekend and The Griswolds, Lost Boy Crow delivers dance-worthy sound that will have you playing them on repeat.
  5. BORNS. Taylor Swift is on the same page with us. She just featured BORNS on her Instagram account. This will be a big year for BORNS.
  6. Whilk and Misky. Think smooth vocals with addicting instrumentals. This duo delivers mysterious yet inviting sound.
  7. Ryn Weaver. Move over Charli XCX, there’s a new pop gal in town and she goes by Ryn. Grab your dance shoes, you’ll need them when you stream her music.
  8. Kacy Hill. This intense beauty delivers tracks that can be felt through the heart and soul.
  9. KLOE: Add this talented gal to your playlist asap. Her alluring voice mixed with tranquil sound will make you a fan for life.
  10. Scavenger Hunt: If you like St. Lucia, you’ll love Scavenger Hunt. Not sure what St. Lucia sounds like? Check out an interview we did with them!

How to wear the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle with Nomad En Vogue

Just when we thought our sexiest, skinniest fit couldn’t get any better, we went and made the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle. Not only does it look like a jean and feel like a legging, it has a mid front 9″ rise, hits right at the ankle and features some great, destroyed details.

Our girl Chloe, blogger behind Nomad En Vogue, isn’t afraid to add a pop of color to her winter wardrobe with her new favorite pair of Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle below.

Meet Chloe:
Hi all! My name is Chloe.  I am a twenty-something year old southern girl, who is transitioning from being a college student into starting my career in the world of fashion and retail.  I have moved five times in my life and can’t call one place home.  I have an obsession with nude shoes, lip gloss, fro-yo and little black dresses.  I love making something old new again. I love “treasure hunting”.  I am a major animal lover, a pretty bad singer, and I don’t like going to the movie theater.  I’m a summer girl and my happy place is a lake on a hot summer day.

What Inspired Chloe’s Look:
I love a good transition piece in my wardrobe, and these jeggings are just that!  When you think mint green, you immediately think of it as a spring color, but oh how times have changed!  This pretty hue can definitely be worn year-round.  Already in the mood for Valentine’s Day, I decided to pair the jeggings with this adorable “Lovers Gonna Love” tee.  I added a floral overlay, which still works great for this time of the year because it’s black!  I also kept the look feeling “wintery” by pairing it with my favorite pair of black booties.  This outfit is fun, feminine, and a little bit boho.  I wore it running errands around town during the day, and then out for a dinner date that night. It made for the perfect Sunday FunDay look.

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Denim

Whether you’re a Slim or Classic Bootcut kind of guy, our Men’s Denim selection is on point this season. Seriously, we have a fit for everyone.

Anthony from Closet Freaks Blog shows us that denim doesn’t always have to mean blue jeans. See how he styles his favorite pair of AEO Skinny Jeans below.

Meet Anthony:
Anthony lives and works in New York City as a structural engineer by day and a blogger by night. Much like his seemingly separate jobs, his style is a cool contrast of bold & trendy with subtle & classic.

What Inspired Anthony’s Look:
When people think of denim I think most often blue jeans probably come to their minds, so for this outfit I wanted to try something different and wear a colored denim. These khaki jeans with their distressed, worn-in look inspired vintage workwear vibes in my mind. To play that up I paired rugged classics like a railroad stripe buttondown with a plaid lumber-jacket, and a black lace up boot for an outdoorsy masculine feel. And because I love layers and contrast, I quite literally topped it all off with a tailored navy topcoat to add a polished touch to the look.

Winter Layering Basics

Our obsession with the Blanket Scarf continues. But really, can you blame us? Our girl Courtney, the blogger behind Color Me Courtney shows us how she does winter layering with a few basics accented by denim on denim and a bold lip. It’s safe to say, we’re in love.

Meet Courtney:
Courtney Quinn of is New-York based twenty something with an out-of-the-box sense of style and a slight color obsession. She believes in red lipstick, dessert first and always being overdressed. In addition to producing handbags for Coach, Courtney (@colormecourtney) catalogs her outfits, hostessing skills, donut addiction and city life with her french bulldog, Waffles on ColorMeCourtney.com.

Winter Layering Basics

Winter Layering BasicsWinter Layering BasicsWhat inspired Courtney’s Look:
A little blue goes a long way, but what about a lot of blue? Well that has to go some place awesome! I was so inspired by the dual blues in this blanket scarf, that I decided to dive headfirst into denim on denim.

Everyone loves a good blanket scarf, especially one that can keep you warm and toasty, while still looking cool. A white blanket scarf breathes new life into this trend by giving it a refreshing new twist. A white blanket scarf like this can carry you all the way through the last bit of winter when paired with double denim, a navy coat, or even a little blue dress and over-the-knee boots for a dressier look!
