What inspired Justin’s look:
Leaves are falling and winter is in full swing here in New York City. You’re surrounded by a pretty dismal and drab environment – naked trees, grey skies, and more concrete than you can imagine. During the winter months, I like to play on the cheerful festivity of the holidays and wear more bold colors, like this royal purple. Paired with my leather vest and this spectacular pair of AEO Vintage Denim, I add a little edge to my holiday wardrobe.

What inspired Jamal’s look:
In a city that dresses in all black when the temp drops I believe we could all use a bit of color in our lives when Fall comes around. This outfit was inspired by one of my favorites colors, yellow! I went for a preppy look but didn’t want to make it too preppy so I replaced the traditional plaid shirt with a denim shirt and swapped out the traditional boat shoe for a cherry red sneaker. Stylish and comfy, thats the motto.

Giving Back: Teach for America

As a company, we believe in supporting youth empowerment and education, so when it came time to select an organization to support, Teach For America was a natural choice. If you’re not familiar with Teach for America, you should be. Teach For America is a national teacher corps of recent college graduates who commit a minimum of two years to teach in under-resourced urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity.

Teach for America Teach for America

In October, Marcie Eberhart, Director of the AEO Foundation, along with AEO Style Director, Preston Konrad and Lauren Rourke, Manager of Styling, visited a classroom at New York City public school Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School, also known as WHEELS, to talk fashion and the importance of education. WHEELS, founded by Teach For America alumnus Brett Kimmel (Houston Corps ‘96), serves 650 students in grades six through 12, nearly all of whom are people of color and 100 percent of whom are growing up in poverty. The school is posting impressive results; students exceed the citywide average pass rates on the Regents exams and 100 percent of their graduates have been accepted to college in the past several years. Preston and Lauren spoke about their journey through the fashion industry, eventually landing the job of their dreams at AEO, and spent time answering the students’ questions.

Teach for America

The entire junior class received a free pair of AEO Jeans.

This holiday season, we’re asking you to help give back. When you purchase an AEO gift box in stores for 50 cents, you will help a child in need. 100% of proceeds from gift box sales will be donated to Teach For America (up to $100,000) to sponsor 18 classrooms for one year.

Style Challenge: The Lace Trim Nightie

What Inspired Tieka’s Look:
My inspiration behind this look was a “cozy night at home”. With winter quickly approaching, I spend a lot of my weekends in warm + cozy clothing. Whether I’m catching up on blogging, watching a few favorite T.V. shows or sitting on the porch enjoying a cup of coffee, I love to be comfortable and warm. And why not look adorable while doing so? This Aerie Lace Trim Nightie is perfect for wearing around the house, and comfortable enough to head straight to bed when I’m ready. I could also imagine pairing this nightie with a fitted blazer and heels too. 13 Going On 30, anyone? ;) And to keep myself warm, I paired the knee-high socks and a fuzzy beanie with my look. I love that all of these items can easily be remixed into my everyday attire, too. xo

What inspired Jessica’s Look:
One of my favorite color combinations in the fall is mixing camel with deep berry tones. To style this look, I started with these fun wine-hued Jegging. The color is perfect for the upcoming holiday season! I knew I was going to wear a rich camel-colored coat, so I kept my sweater muted to let the jeans stand out. I topped in off with a chic blanket scarf, which is a must-have for the season!
