#AEOSTYLE Roundup: Hues Of The Season

The leaves are slowly starting to change from Summer green to Fall hues of gold, orange and red, and we noticed a shift in color on the #AEOSTYLE feed as well.

As always, we saw an abundance of AEO denim love, especially in newer fits and styles like the Tomgirl or mended destroyed Denim X. Check out this week’s style roundup to see how you can add some color back into your Fall #AEOSTYLE.

How To Wear Flex Cafe And The Cotton Parka With The Sharp Law

At AEO, we’re brewing up a new jean fabrication and it includes an energizing ingredient that over 50% of Americans consume on a daily basis…coffee! We took our revolutionary high performance stretch even further by making it with 2.25 grams of recycled coffee grounds per jean.  Blogger Law from The Sharp Law paired his Flex Cafe back to our parka for fall style. Check out his #AEOSTYLE inspiration below, and wake up & wear the coffee.

Meet Law: The Sharp Law is a Los Angeles based menswear and lifestyle blog.  We cater to the men’s demographic with styling tips and trend forecasts, while showcasing the city we call home.

What Inspired Law’s Look: One of my favorite looks for fall is military inspired.  Army green is a unique color in that it gives off a warm earthy feel, yet maintains a level of sharpness and sophistication – like this American Eagle parka.  Paired with my Café X Skinny Jeans and a simple white tee for a cool, on the go look.

How To Layer For Fall

There’s nothing better than a versatile piece that can be worn from day to night. That’s where our Ruffle Nightie comes in. Its soft, stretchy fabric and pretty A-line silhouette make it perfect for lounging and layering throughout the day.  Caitlyn from How do You Wear That starts by throwing our soft ribbed Turtleneck into the mix.

 what to wear today What Makes Caitlyn #AerieREAL:
“Aerie recently launched their amazing campaign about truly embracing and loving your REAL self and I am super excited to share that I have partnered up with them to showcase what makes me #AerieREAL. For me, this means to be your best authentic self. Try and let down whatever facade, guard or low-self esteem “thing” you have going on and just be you. Totally easier said than done, right?  I know.  We have all been there. However, we encourage you to truly embrace you who are – curvy, boney, sensitive, insensitive, extroverted, introverted, oily skinned that causes random zits to break out specifically on your chin (ahem, me!)  thin hair, thick hair, big boobed or completely flat like a wall boobed (again, uhm, me!)  WHATEVER it may be.”

 what to wear today “#AerieREAL is voicing to embrace our real selves by using non-retouched photos and women ranging from all different body types in their ads. As we all know, the industry is surrounded with tall, super thin, high sunken in cheek boned models walking down the runway or posing in advertisements.  Aerie is taking a stand to showcase real women and ultimately say screw it, “I. am. me. And I love me.”

 what to wear today “Now, let’s talk about this perfect go-to, can pair with anything, super comfortable Ruffle Nightie from Aerie. The possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to this piece because 1. The material. It is so soft and almost stretchy it makes it easy to layer it. 2. The color. The lovely color…black! I decided to go super simple while styling to really showcase the dress in and of itself while adding my own 90s style to it. You can wear this a number of ways whether it be under a chunky oversized sweater like this one from Aerie with some boots + tights, a cozy flannel and beanie or even as a straight up Nightie paired with their matching robe.”

Real Talk With Rachel Adland, Associate Buyer of Tees

Want the inside scoop on the supersoft tees and tanks you love? Get REAL with Rachel Adland, Associate Buyer of Tees at Aerie! Read on to learn more about how she helps to plan Aerie’s line each season, her favorite item from our fall collection and the products she can’t live without.

Real Talk With Rachel Adland, Associate Buyer of Tees

Hi, Rachel! Thanks for joining us today. Can you tell us a bit more about your position here at Aerie? What are the daily responsibilities of a Merchant?

We assort the lines that are in the stores each season. Merchants strategize the business needs and relay them to our design team, who comes up with an awesome line that we cost out with production. Then we work with planning to get the financials behind it, order from the vendors and voila! The tees are in stores and ready to buy.

Real Talk With Rachel Adland, Associate Buyer of Tees

Shop Rachel’s Look: Aerie Drapey Turtleneck Tee

Starting from when you wake up in the morning, what’s an average morning like for you?

Snooze! At least 8 times. Quick, super-hot shower. Hair, makeup, debate if it’s a lipstick day or not, get dressed, pour coffee to-go and I’m out the door in 30ish minutes. In a perfect world I would get up and drink coffee while watching GMA, but I’ve had to face the facts that I’m not a morning person and when it comes down to it, I’d rather be snoozing.

What’s your favorite item in our fall collection?

I LOVE the super soft ribbed turtleneck. I bought it in 2 colors and wear them every chance I get!

Time for a sneak peek! Which product are you most excited to launch for Holiday?

The new Holiday Flannel Button Down. It’s versatile, so you can match it back to PJs for a traditional holiday sleep look, or wear it out with jeans for a festive fall/winter look. The plaids are great too! Very wearable and easy to outfit and the fabric is super soft. Real Talk With Rachel Adland, Associate Buyer of Tees

Countdown to Holiday! Okay, let’s get social. Which is your fave? Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Snapchat?

Instagram and Snapchat for sure.

Speaking of, what’s your Instagram handle?


Officially following. What’s one item you can’t live without?

Chapstick or my hair clip. It’s really a toss-up. They are both equally important in my life and a bit stressful when we are apart.

What does #AerieREAL mean to you?

Being #AerieREAL means being and feeling free to be who you are, express yourself the way you want to and not to waste your time on things that don’t matter. It means being proud to be you and loving the things about you that make you unique.

Thank you Rachel!
