With cooler weather comes changing leaves, pumpkin flavored sweets, and comfy #OOTDs!

We turned to the Style Gurus of College Fashionista to show us how to rock our must-have joggers 24/7. From NYC to CA, take a quick tour of our favorite looks below.

Music Monday: Hunter Hunted Interview

For this week’s installment of our AEO Up Next series, we bring you the epitome of dream pop with LA-based Hunter Hunted. We sat down with Daniel Chang, one half of the duo, to chat about how he and Michael met and what inspires their sound. Check out their video for the single “Keep Together” and get to know them more after the jump!

AEO:  Tell me a little bit about how this band came together.

Hunter Hunted:  We started this project about a year and a half ago. Michael and I collectively had this desire to make a new sound that’s a little bit different from Lady Danville. And so a year after we just decided to branch off.

It’s funny because even as we grow up together. Our tastes and stuff still go kind of go hand-in-hand. So this project allowed us to explore different tastes and different directions together.

AEO:  Did you grow up in Los Angeles?

HH:  No, I grew up in a small town in Northern California called Danville. Michael actually grew up in the same town but we met in college so we didn’t know that we grew up in the same town. We actually went to rival high schools.

But we met in college when we were auditioning for an acapella group.

AEO:  How would you say the area that you grew up in or the area that you lived in when you were in college affected the music that you make?

HH:  For me, I actually didn’t start playing music until I got to UCLA. And I was, ya know, a college kid with a guitar so a lot of my songs are sort of acoustic, singer-songwriter driven. Then when Michael and I got together, we were coming from the acapella world so a lot of our songs were very harmony-based because we were so used to singing together in harmony.

As far as how where we’re from informed our music, I guess, I don’t know. It’s funny because a lot of people identify our sound as having a sort of California-indie sound. Personally, I don’t know what exactly that sounds like but I guess I can kind of feel it.

AEO:  Yeah, that seems to be the difference between East and West coast artists. For some reason, the East is just a bit darker. Maybe it’s the weather.

HH:  True. Our songs have some darker meanings but I guess as far as how it comes across, the sound can be kind of a sparkly upbeat vibe. Some of the songs that have a darker meaning can be disguised with a poppy sound.

The Denim Dish: Holiday Collection Sneak Peek

dd1Every season, we put together a press preview to showcase the latest American Eagle Outfitters and Aerie collections for fashion editors, bloggers and influencers in our New York City showroom. A press preview allows them to visit our showroom and see our new collection, talk to our PR team about what’s new at AEO and mingle with their peers.

Our latest preview was for our Holiday 2014 collection… and we did it this past July! That’s right… we were in a sea of wintery puffer jackets even when the rest of the world was rocking their AEO Festival shorties and Birkenstocks. Our showroom was beaming with neon lights flashing “Get Down” in a fun reference to our down puffer jackets that will be available this October.

We also gave our editors a sneak peek of the American Beagle Outfitters collection. ABO started as an April Fool’s Day joke to help rescue dogs in need, but thanks to your overwhelming response, we’re actually making the collection happen for Holiday 2014! Instagram star, @toastmeetsworld made a guest appearance at our event wearing American Beagle Outfitters, which was definitely a crowd pleaser.

Every prop, backdrop and styled outfit on a form took a lot of attention to detail. We even got to have fun with food, incorporating the theme of the season throughout the menu and serving items ranging from mini frozen hot chocolate to mini French Toast in our signature AEO back pocket.

Below are some exclusive pictures of our Holiday 2014 event. Be sure to check out the collection, which hits stores in November.

Dressing up your favorite jogger takes a little more finesse than pulling a pair on to hit the library, but luckily, fit and style expert Jenny Altman is here with pro tips for pulling off an effortless GNO look! Here, she builds the look starting with our Slim Fit Joggers. The fit is relaxed, but tapered in the leg for more of a dressed-up vibe.
