How To Create A DIY Patch-Covered Outerwear Jacket

Temperatures are dropping but that doesn’t mean you have to lower your #AEOSTYLE standards too! Erik from MOG Blog put together a super easy step-by-step guide on how to create your very own patch covered outerwear using our Aviator Jacket. Get to know Erik and the inspiration behind his work below.

What Inspired Erik’s Look: “I chose to wear the jacket with a really simple outfit underneath. Because it’s is one-of-a-kind, I wanted it to be the star player of this look. A simple black hoodie, tee shirt and jeans, contrasted with a great pair of suede boots. Add any signature jewelry you typically wear (for me, it’s this vintage gold bracelet) and you’ve got a look that’s uniquely you – and that’s the best part!”

ERIK LARSON 5

Step 1: Go hunting for patches, pins, buttons and anything else you’d like to adorn your jacket with. I found these at a cool vintage store in my neighborhood, though there’s plenty of great resources online. Check out Etsy as well!

Step 2 – Gather your materials, including a needle and thread, some scissors, and Fabri-tac (or similar fabric glue.)

Step 3 – Lay out your design, and when you’re satisfied, attach the patches either by sewing or gluing with Fabri-tac. Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle before washing or wearing. I’m sewing mine, because I would be letting myself down after my years as a costume designer in grad school, if I had decided to glue. Lol.

Step 4 – Last, but not least – attach your pins and buttons and get stylin’!”

What inspired Stephanie’s look: “This romper rocks! It’s quickly becoming my favorite – and a piece that I definitely plan on wearing throughout the winter months here in Florida. I love it because it’s easy to wear and goes with everything in my closet right now! For this outfit, I threw on a pair of fringe heels and styled it with a denim jacket and felt hat to make it causal. You can also wear it with slouchy boots, a heavier jacket and a cute crossbody bag, but I prefer sandals – especially since it’s still so warm here in Florida!”

What Inspired Cristina’s Look: For most of us that don’t live in endless summer weather, Fall has officially arrived. It’s always so important to bundle up within the first couple of weeks of transitional weather to avoid getting sick. Here, I put together the perfect Fall ensemble that will surely keep anyone warm and stylish. When layering it’s always very important to wear similar colour tones. Grey’s, blacks, taupe and camel are really the “IT” colours of the season.
In this particular look, what truly brings it all together is this beautiful and warm American Eagle plaid sweater, which is conveniently on point with this season’s trending colour palette. After years of searching, I’m so happy to have finally found the perfect plaid sweater. It’s definitely a closet staple, its achromatic colours can simply never run out of style, plus its warm, cozy and so stylish. It can be worn as a light jacket to wear over a pretty dress or even just a simple date night to a diner followed by a late movie. I paired the look with a light grey pant, to really make the sweater pop and completed it with a classic black bootie.
Wishing you all a lovely week!
With love,
C

How To Wear Flex Cafe Denim With Blue Collar Prep

You may be familiar with our Men’s Flex Denim. It moves with you, ensuring comfort and quality aren’t compromised. What you may not have known is that we’ve taken our revolutionary high performance stretch even further by making it with recycled coffee grounds. Eric from Blue Collar Prep styled our Men’s Slim Straight Active Flex / Cafe Jean with an “edge meets comfort” vibe. Get to know Eric and the inspiration behind his #AEOSTYLE below.

Meet Eric: I’m Eric! I’m a NY electrician with a love for fashion & shopping more than my wife lol. My blog and instagram accounts let me showcase my interests that I can’t do on the 9 to 5. My style is more on the casual side, but I love exploring all areas of fashion and try to keep my looks versatile. I’ve got an adorable son Nate who keeps me on my toes, so it’s important for me to stay comfortable but show that dad’s can still have swag and be stylish!

AEO+BCP6

What Inspired Eric’s Look: Being that it’s flannel season, I find myself wearing plaid button downs a lot. To switch it up I layered mine over a striped tee with my black leather jacket. Mixing different patterns gives any outfit that little bit of edge that I like. This kind of style goes well with a good pair of jeans with that broken-in denim look! I really dig these because the flex denim makes it feel like you’re wearing sweatpants, without compromising style. I’m a big fan of cuffing my pants – no matter the style…jogger, skinny, slim fit, cargo, I always seem to go with a cuff. I also always like to accessorize any outfit where I can to add a couple extra details!
