How To Style The Vintage Hi-Rise Jean & Embroidered Bomber Jacket With Trendy Chickadee

If you don’t have a bomber jacket in your closet by now, it’s time to get one ASAP! This season, the bomber jacket gets a fresh update from the darker tones and thicker fabrics of Fall & Winter. This must-have jacket has a satin finish and embellished details reminiscent of the 90s, like embroidered designs and cool stripes. Blogger Molly Hogan from Trendy Chickadee took this runway staple and is showing you how to wear it for a vintage athletic look. Plus, she paired the bomber with the jean taking over Instagram, our relaxed fit Vintage Hi-Rise Jean. Check out Molly’s outfit below featuring the AEO Vintage Hi-Rise Jean and AEO Embroidered Bomber Jacket for some major old-school vibes.

Meet Molly:
“I’m Molly, a Los Angeles-based boho style blogger! A few months ago I moved from the best, weirdest city on earth, Austin, TX to the City of Angels to pursue a career in blogging and advertising. My blog, Trendy Chickadee, is for anyone who is curious about fashion and cares about the story behind the brands we wear. I hope to inspire people to never stop searching for beautiful adventures, beautiful people and beautiful clothes!”

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! ”

Digital Detox: Hiking With Mae

Less screen time. More you time. We asked some of the Aerie girls at our HQ how they work a digital detox into their lives to balance between REAL life and likes.

Mae, Social Media Marketing Coordinator, starts her weekends early and outside to digitally detox: “Hiking is the one way I can disconnect. It’s just me, the woods and my thoughts. On the weekends, I wake up in the morning, throw on a pair of leggings and head to the trails.”
