As Seen In #AEOSTYLE: Started From The Bottom

Styling a strong outfit is sometimes like constructing a building: you have to start from the bottom. We love the focus on trendy fall AEO bottoms we spotted in some of our favorite magazines recently. From destroyed mended details on hi-rise jeggings to flowy skirts with endless pairing possibilities, check out how #AEOSTYLE was featured this month.

As Seen In

Denim featuring destroyed mended detailing is a fun update to basic destructed denim, as seen in Life & Style. If you want to switch things up, channel Victoria Justice and rock a paneled skirt, which you can easily style to look sporty like Victora or boho like the vintage vibe we’re seeing everywhere this season.

AEO Back to School Essentials

Back to school: you love to hate it, but we love to love it. Why wouldn’t we? The new school year is the perfect time for a wardrobe overhaul and a brand new #OOTD, so we’re showing you some of our favorite closet essentials transformed into back to school looks that will own the classroom.

Girls:

Back To School Essentials 2015

Boho Top
This season is all about vintage inspired looks. Our AEO Embroidered Peasant Shirt will turn heads with its eye-catching details and breezy feel. Bonus? It’s light and airy, which means it’s perfect for days when the summer heat is sticking around, but it’s still appropriate for class.

Washed-Out Jeggings
The end of summer brings the end of shorts season, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck wearing the same old jeans. Give your look a little edge in our Super Stretch Jegging in a washed out color. Slim fit pants are the perfect way to balance out your outfit, especially when you’re wearing a flowing top.

Crossbody Bag
Step up your bag game this school year with the AEO Leather Fringe Crossbody Purse. Sturdy leather straps make carrying books comfortable, and the fun fringe will complement any outfit.

Long Necklaces
Even though we know and love the bold, bib necklace, we’re challenging you to be different this year and wear a long, delicate necklace instead. Our AEO Turquoise Fan Bolo Necklace will add some glam to your look without overpowering the outfit because less is sometimes more.

Statement Rings
You’re writing all day, so why not add a little fun to your fingers? Stacking rings is on trend right now, and we love piling as many on as possible. Our AEO Turquiose & Triangle Midi Ring set adds a pop of color and unexpected placement above the knuckle. Paired with the AEO White Stone Ring, your accessories totally make the grade.

Bold Shoes
Slip on heels are one of our favorite looks to help transition from summer sandals to fall boots, so we’re happy to see the trend back again in 2015. The Swedish HasBeens Slip In Super High is no exception. Make a statement in super-high, retro shoes when you strut into the classroom.

Original Fragrance
Let’s get real: back to school is one of the most important times to amp up your confidence levels. When you’re confident, you’re able to make the grades, handle the stress that comes with the school year and make a name for yourself. Our AE Me Fragrance for Her will give you the boost you need to be yourself and embrace your strengths.

Guys:

Back To School Essentials 2015

Denim Jacket
Early fall mornings can get a little chilly. Plus, with class, study tables, football games and nights out, you’re busy and need a jacket that fits your lifestyle. We love the timeless look of the AEO Denim Jacket, especially over a button down shirt.

Small Details
Guys can accessorize, too. Keep your look rugged while adding some texture with the AEO Climbing Rope Wrap Bracelet. We also love a fedora or wide brim hat, especially for coffee with friends on the weekend.

AEO Printed Button Down Shirt
If you haven’t invested in a button down shirt, do it now.  The AEO Printed Button Down Shirt will become your staple top for the school year, from class presentations to date nights. We love it paired with a destructed, slim pant for a mix of edge and prep.

Destructed Denim
Everyone needs a great pair of denim in their closet, and our Slim Straight Jean will be your new favorite fit. With just the right amount of destroyed detailing, you can make these jeans work all school year.

Athletic Sneaker
Meet your denim’s new best friend: the New Balance 565 Sneaker. Long gone are the days when you thought you couldn’t pair skinny jeans with this style – pull the look together with a button down for a cool campus vibe.

Colorblock Backpack
Okay, we know – sometimes studying is boring. That doesn’t mean your backpack has to be boring, too. Get noticed in the library this year when you carry your books in a bright backpack like the AEO X State Backpack.

AEO Top 5 Trends For Summer

Labor Day is just over one month away, which means there is still plenty of time to make the most of summer. We’ve been watching your #AEOSTYLE submissions for the past few weeks and have curated our top five favorite trends for summer based on what you’re wearing. Check out our list below, and make sure to shop the looks while summer is still hot.

Overalls
The unexpected summer MVP? Overalls! Give this youthful staple an updated twist by layering it with a crop top or dress it up by pairing it with heels and a lace shirt.

Soft Shorts
We’re all about combining comfort with style, and soft shorts are the perfect mix. From pretty prints to crochet details, soft shorts are your summer BFF. Pair your shorts with an elegant, flowing tee or be bold and mix prints!

Stripes
Summer is the season for boating and beach vacations, so naturally we love a nautical spin on our #AEOSTYLE. Rock classic pieces like swing dresses and tees with fun stripes all the way through the end of the season, especially when you’re on the water.

Ponchos
Hot days, cool nights – you know how it is. Ponchos are one of our favorite trends of the summer because of their versatility. Use them as an accessory over your favorite sundress or denim shorts or make them the star of your outfit. We also love how practical they are for nights when cookouts turn into bonfires!

Wide Brim Hats
Statement hats are one of this summer’s biggest accessories. No doubt you’ve seen them on nearly every head at all of the best music festivals – which is why you should have one, too! We think wide brim hats look amazing with maxi skirts or distressed shorts and a crop top.

Love is Love 2015

Pittsburgh, Toronto, New York City and San Francisco are not only some of the greatest cities in the world – they also happen to be just a few of the many cities that support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts… Love.

For the third year, American Eagle Outfitters is proud to be a supporter of Pittsburgh Pride on June 13th taking place on the streets of downtown close to our Headquarters. Following Pittsburgh, a series of events will take place starting on June 19th to make up the WorldPride Festival in Toronto.  On June 28th, New York City will kickoff it’s pride events with a rally and on June 27th-28th, San Francisco will host it’s annual themed Pride Celebration. We wanted to support the cause too!  So we designed limited edition tanks and t-shirts for men and women and are selling them online and in select AEO stores!  To help ensure that these events continue to take place all over the globe, we will be donating 15% of the proceeds from every purchase to InterPride. Read on to learn more about InterPride, what they stand for and the amazing work that they do.
