What inspired Adriana’s Look:
I tend to gravitate more towards cozy looks during the colder months, and this AEO sweater is just perfect to throw on over my favorite pair of leggings and mixed with a chic scarf. The pretty pattern and comfy knit make it the perfect winter staple, so ideal for a day of running errands, grabbing coffee with friends, or staying warm indoors working on my blog. I’m definitely planning to wear this sweater all winter long, and can’t wait to style it a few different ways. IMG_3721

What Inspired Cara’s Outfit:
I fell in love with this jacket, it is the perfect combo between cozy and cool, pairing perfectly with torn denim as it does with a long maxi dress. I chose to style the jacket with black jeggings and black knee high boots (loving this trend!) to really pull the focus of the look to the jacket.  The jacket is a great way to easily pull color and print into your look with just one piece!AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: MOTO JACKET

Winter in the south means hot one day, cold the next (literally) so I have become a huge fan of layers. This moto Jacket is the perfect piece to layer on top of a sweater dress with a faux fur snood for a colder night and can easily be worn with jeans a tee for something a little more casual for one of these 70 degree days.

It’s our mission to make sure you look cool while keeping warm this winter. How you might ask? Well, our Quilted Vest is a great place to start. With its diamond-quilted fabric and mock neck collar, your winter blues will be a thing of the past.

We asked bloggers McArthur from Daily Mister and Chimed from NxStyle to show us how they style this cold weather must-have.

What Inspired McArthur’s Look:
When it comes to my personal style I love to blur the lines between dandyism and streetwear. While I easily could’ve gone in a traditional route and paired the vest with a sweater I decided to dress it up with this cotton blazer from American Eagle. One of my favorite things to do is style garments in completely different ways and I can’t wait to see how I’ll be wearing this essential piece will fit in my wardrobe throughout the season.

What Inspired Chimed’s Outfit:
The main inspiration of the outfit was the fall and spring time weather where it is too hot to wear full on jackets but its too chilly to go with just shirt and tie. Adding a puffer vest to your everyday outfit not only gives you an extra style points but it immediately puts you in the category of those in the GQ magazine. This is a perfect way to help you stand out in the grey crowd of chilly weather in a stylish and work appropriate way.

What inspired Shannon’s Look:
During Fall everyone wants to be comfy, but yet still stylish and this amazing poncho is just that! I have been loving that the poncho has made a comeback because is doesn’t get much cozier! I really wanted to play up the Earth tones of the poncho,  so I paired it with these gorgeous taupe, suede boots and broke up the colors with a dark wash AEO skinny jean. Simple, cozy, but yet still chic!

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: The Jogger

Whether you’re staying home or traveling to be with family this Thanksgiving, our Jogger is going to be your new best friend. Between the relaxed fit and drawstring waist, you’ll be thankful you opted for this go-to pant after your second helping of turkey and stuffing.

Bloggers, Ryan from Fashionisto Diaries and Makayla from Fashionably Kay, show us how they style our Jogger for the holiday.

Meet Ryan:
I started Fashionisto Diaries in high school as a way to keep in touch with friends. Now, I am able to share my style with friends all around the world! During my sophomore year of high school I interviewed Tim Gunn. After that interview, I knew I wanted to interview more people and tell them my opinion on fashion. My style is casual preppy. I feel it can be replicated and that’s what I want. I believe fashion is achievable, but style is something you learn. Fashionisto Diaries is my journey of understanding my own personal style and everything else that happens along the way.

DSC_5740 DSC_5769

What Inspired Ryan’s Look:
I wanted to go outside my comfort zone for this look! I’ve really never worn flannel before and I don’t wear a lot of colored pants. This was the perfect start and I believe this look came together without looking to “christmas-y.” I wore this look around the city, but you can wear it anywhere. The flannel kept me super warm and the joggers allowed me to be active during the day, while looking chic.

What Inspired Kay’s Look:
This outfit was inspired by a cozy city look. I love a comfortable yet chic style that can take you from running errands to lounging around at home. I paired it with an AEO sweater to create a black and white look, which happens to be my favorite. These joggers are perfect for it all! IMG_1947 (2)

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.
