What Inspired Janelle’s Look:
“The long sleeve and cut out shoulder make this dress an ideal piece for transitioning into the new season. With fall in the air, I couldn’t wait to pull out my favorite statement boots for a seventies-inspired look. I also like to subtly mix prints on occasion, and thought a bandana was an on-trend way to do just that.”

How To Style The Zip-Up Studded Skirt With Style Lullaby

Nights are getting cooler, but #AEOSTYLE is heating up. We’re feeling the 90s revival that’s happening all throughout fashion right now, and it’s been fun injecting hints of the trend into our everyday look (think lace blouses, chokers, studs & more). One of the main players in the 90s trend is the miniskirt, and we’re so excited to be able to make the most of this classic closet piece again! This season, our miniskirts range from dark denim to cozy corduroy to soft faux-suede & have surprise details like scalloped edges and studs. Blogger Sharon Wu from Style Lullaby styled the Zip-Up Studded Skirt, which is perfect for a night out or weekends roaming. Keep reading to see Sharon’s full look & discover the inspiration behind her outfit.

How To Style The Super Soft Jegging With Catcher in the Style

While we’re all about denim at AEO, we also place a lot of importance on comfortable fashion. We believe that great style doesn’t have to be separated from comfort and easy dressing. That’s why we created one of our newest denim fits, the AEO Super Soft Jegging. This jegging is made with extra stretch and amazingly soft fabric for a fit that you won’t ever want to take off. If you’re looking for even more stretch that won’t bag out, the Super Soft Jegging is also available in with X4 technology! We challenged blogger Thania from Catcher in the Style to create a look featuring the Super Soft Jegging, and she came up with a classically edgy look that will take you from work or class to dinner or a night out. Thania’s full look & inspiration behind her outfit are below!

Meet Thania:
“Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, Thania Peck had her start in fashion at a young age, modeling with top designers and photographers all over the world.

Whether she is finding new looks from a secondhand shop, interviewing musicians/athletes/stylists, crafting together a new shoot with creative forces in the industry or partnering with charities, her organic branding approach is a welcoming taste by designers and other ‘Catchers’ of fashion alike.”

What Inspired Thania’s Look:
“As opposed to the usual suspect of an extensive color palette for summer, take a more monochromatic approach on your outfit of the day. Experts say grey is a color that makes people feel self-sufficient. With that said, let a white shirt, grey pants and loafers be your leading uniform transitioning into fall.

This grey denim jegging pant is perfection. It juxtaposes comfort with an effortlessly chic style. It’s great paired with a blouse and an oversized coat for the office and can be worn for happy hour without skipping a beat.”

One of our favorite shirts from the latest collection, the AEO Lace Bell Sleeve Shirt, is on our must-have list right now for that very reason. Blogger Alyssa May styled the shirt with an easy, cool-girl vibe that’s perfect for the end of summer heat.

What Inspired Alyssa’s Look:
“When it comes to picking out an outfit, comfort is always my priority! Sure, of course I care about the way it looks– but feeling comfortable (and confident) in your outfit is just as important. This top is perfect for the summer because of it’s light and airy material. I especially love the lace and wide bell sleeves, as it gives it a bohemian vibe. Let’s just say, a flowy top and distressed shorts is my favorite combination for a warm summer’s day.”
