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.

Holiday Survival Tips

The Holiday season is upon us, and with it comes fun memories and traditions. The downside? The season also comes with a less welcome side of stress, between wrapping a million gifts, long lines and listening to your Great Uncle Jeff tell that story (again).

A quick checklist of the essentials is key to getting through the craziness that comes with the season. We asked Aerie’s fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, for some of her Holiday survival tips and must-have Aerie items. Read on for Jenny’s tips below!

Jennys Holiday Survival Tips

Everything you need to survive the holidays starts at Aerie!

Jenny’s Essentials:

1. The Romantic Lace Bralette: The soft structure shows off your most natural shape. Just enough support with tons of comfort!

2. The Pushup Bare Bra: This is the best bra investment you can make! It will get you through every holiday event.

3. Outta-Sight Undie: Good undies are also important and panty lines are not allowed! This is a no-fuss option under any dress.

4. Moccasins: I can never have enough slippers around the holidays, and these are my favorite on the site right now.

5. The Aerie Blanket Scarf: I bought 4 of these blanket scarves for friends as gifts! You cannot go wrong!

6. Aerie Waffle Sleep Set: Mix & match pajamas are a favorite of mine for winter.

7. Aerie Flannel Pajama Pant: I love flannel bottoms with a drawstring. I love the ones with the shopping bear!

Jenny’s Holiday Survival Tips:

1. I like to glam up my holiday look with some jewelry, and this is where I make a little investment! I go for classic, personal pieces that make you feel special,

2. I love with the house smells delicious. If I’m not baking anything (which I’m probably not), then a yummy candle is the thing. I love fig scents, but pine smells really woodsy…a smell I appreciate living in the city!

3. A great pair of shoes that can carry you through all your holiday events is a must! For me, it’s a functional bootie in winter, with a touch of glam.

4. A live Christmas tree is a must for me. There is nothing that smells better and makes you live the holiday moment more than the scent of real pine. This smell reminds me that I’m home every time I walk through the door.

5. I love to eat…and there is no time I enjoy it more! My mother-in-law inspired me to make some amazing soups. I’m a vegetarian, so this Avocado Soup is my favorite (you sprinkle popcorn on it!).

Super-Easy Avocado Soup

Ingredients:

4-5 ripe avocados

Broth (I use vegetable, but feel free to use chicken broth)

A squeeze of lemon to taste

Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

Blend all ingredients together, then serve at room temperature with a handful of popcorn sprinkled on top. Then eat the rest of the popcorn, of course!

6. Finally, the key to getting me through the holiday season (especially a cold, New York City one) is a trip planned with my family for January! When I know there is something warm in my future, it gives me something special to look forward to.

Thanks for the tips, Jenny! We hope you have a fun-filled holiday season, Aerie girls!

Xoxo,

Aerie

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.

Meet Chimed:
NxStyle is a fashion blog run by a couple who loves fashion as much as they love pizza where we inspire others through our illustrious fashion posts. Through social media we are regarded as an upcoming fashion power couple on a mission to help people find their fashion ground.

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.
