As Seen In #AEOSTYLE: Fashion Trend Recap

This week’s As Seen In #AEOSTYLE is all about the details – think destructed denim, jewel-toned embroidery, soft fringe and fabric twists. Our tops take it to the next level. Why wear a basic tank when you can have a fun lace-up front or crochet sweater fabric? The same goes for outerwear. Right now, we’re into lightly destroyed details on our denim jackets & military-inspired touches on our jackets. To balance out the little details, pair those pieces back to classic white denim Jeggings or layer with a boyfriend fit denim button down.

Keep scrolling  to see where we spotted #AEOSTYLE this week, and hover over your favorite items for shoppable links!

We’re always trying to reinvent classic styles so that you can take them & make them your own. This season, try our updated tank top or tee shirt. Try a cropped silhouette or a new fabric, like stitched sweater in the (yes, we said sweater!) for a foray into festival fashion.

Another trend we saw this week was in outerwear details. Breathe new life into your standard denim jacket or denim shirt by experimenting with destructed details on top instead of in your jeans, or wear a new wash. If you’re looking for the perfect outfit topper, our olive military jacket is light enough to take you from day to night.
