Outfit Completers: Finish Your Look In #AEOSTYLE

The quickest way to elevate your look? Add some accessories! Our favorite way to finish a look is by adding some outfit completers like hats, jewelry, belts or bags. Adding an accessory (or, like, three!) can take a look from good to great in a flash. Stocking up on little details – think a trendy backpack or a go-with-anything pair of sneakers – make it easy to build a complete look.

Start with the basics: a cool pair of jeans and a tee or sweater. Next, think about adding layers, like a denim shirt, jacket or sweatshirt. Then, it’s time to finish your look. Right now, we’re all about athletic details like sneakers and baseball hats or 90s accessories like a bandana and metallic pieces. Check out the looks below for inspiration to build your own complete look & show off your unique #AEOSTYLE!

Home For The Holidays Packing Guide

Whether you’re going home for winter break or visiting family for the holiday season, our packing guide will have you prepared!

LAY EVERYTHING OUT

Before you start packing things into your suitcase, lay them on your bed so you can see what you have set out. This will help you remember things you may be forgetting and can help with chronic over-packing.

home-for-the-holidays

Here’s what we’ve packed: Slipper | Lace Keyhole Triangle Bralette | Real Soft® Flannel Sleep Pant | Cable Sweater Jogger | Boucle Turtleneck Sweater | AEO Sateen X Hi-Rise Jegging | AEO Sweater All Weather Boot | Hand Knit Beanie | Hi-Rise Play Legging | Cable Pullover Sweater | Fuzzy Scarf | Aerie Sparkle Crew Socks | Swedish Hasbeens Husband Clog | Lace Longline Bralette | Shine Cheeky + Lace | Boyshort | Cheeky + Shine Waistband

BEGIN WITH THE BASICS

Don’t spend so much time planning your outfits that you forget the basics. Start with your some cute undies, a versatile bralette, warm socks, and your PJs. These are the things you’ll most likely spend the most time in.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

It’s always helpful to check the weather for  your destination. Remember to bring warm clothes and cold weather accessories when needed. Packing the proper shoes is important. Always have an extra pair of weather-friendly shoes.

CHECK IT TWICE

Once you have everything laid out, check your haul twice. After you have everything set to go, pack it up in your suitcase. Keep a carry-on or backpack out for last minute additions.

RELAX!

All the work is done, now snuggle up for some snowflakes and chill. Bring your backpack with you for long trips, making laptops, books, magazines, and snacks easily accessible on the plane or in the car.

Let’s talk shoes. Fringe is huge this season, and we’re offering it in your favorite boots and sandals. We love the boho, free-spirited vibes that fringe brings to any outfit. Plus, it looks great paired with anything from your favorite maxi dress to your go-to pair of hi-rise denim.

On to dresses and skirts– we have literally every fit and color you could want for Spring, so you’re definitely going to find your new favorite maxi, midi, fit-and-flare or even a denim skirt (yep, they’re back again!). Add touches of color to your look with accessories like scarves and hats.

Since denim is synonymous with #AEOSTYLE, we can’t forget to mention the latest updates to our denim collection – Denim X and Flex/Denim technology in shorts! If you thought you loved our Denim X jeans, you’re going to love them in shorts form, too. If you’re not quite ready for shorts yet, utilize denim in other parts of your look, like a button-down or vest.
