College Fashionista Weekend Looks

Reed Emerson, Northern Arizona University: “I wore this outfit for a weekend of lounging. I paired a burgundy bandeau with leopard print flats and an oversized sweater with my American Eagle Outfitters overalls. The look was comfortable, easy and I loved how the overalls made an effortless statement for the whole ensemble!”

College Fashionista Weekend Looks

Courtney Pelot, University of Wisconsin: “On the weekends, you can typically find me lounging around one of my favorite coffee shops, trying to get a head start on the next week’s homework. The comfortable Sky High Jeggings and buttery soft tank top are perfect for this occasion! I added a camo shirt to stay warm in air conditioned coffee shops and cute rag & bone booties to add a bit of polish to my weekend look.”

College Fashionista Weekend Looks

Ali Stagnitta, George Washington University: “Black skinnies are a super staple for fall denim and awesome for some weekend relaxation! Pair them with an oversized sweater or blouse to contrast their skinny nature. To elongate your legs and bring in some color, pointed-toe flats or heels are the perfect addition! Don’t be afraid to accessorize with a cool hat or funky sunnies!”

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Original Boot

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

Jamal from Style Society Guy styled our Original Boot Jean.

What inspired Jamal’s look:
Like most people, fall is my favorite season. It’s the season of ultimate versatility when it comes to clothing options. The best part? You can still wear some of your favorites from the summer; just pair them differently. This ikat shirt was perfect for the summer but as it gets chilly I can throw on this orange varsity jacket and roll up the sleeves.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you’ve already began packing or you’re still anxiously scrolling through Pinterest to find the perfect back-to-school looks, it’s not too late to pick up those last minute must-haves. Leave the stress behind and let us show you how easy it is to ace cute and comfortable!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

We think you’ll agree that one of the best parts of going off to college is the freedom. Not just the freedom to stay up until midnight, eating oreos and laughing with your roomie (okay, that’s awesome, too) but the freedom to dress how you want, when you want. You have the rest of your life to be an adult, so for now rock that effortlessly chic look like it’s going out of style.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you plan to spend afternoons doing yoga on the quad or lounging with your besties, our Crop Yoga Pant is something you can’t live without.  Between the soft stretch cotton jersey and lace print waistband, you’ll own multiple pairs by the end of the semester. Yes, they’re that good. Pair with our über-comfortable Seamless Bra to achieve that level of zen you’ll need right before your intense mid-term.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

For all you busy fashionistas running (literally!) from one class to the next, you’re going to love the Best Basics Shop. Throw on our Hide & Peek Plunge Bralette, Scoop Neck Tank and Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt to achieve that simple, yet stylish #OOTD. And the look wouldn’t be complete without our Jogger – a skinny fit that can be dressed up or down. If that doesn’t sound like sweatpant bliss, we don’t know what does.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Once your #OOTD is picked out, you’ll want to add a little something sweet. Our Hidden Love line of Body Lotion, Body Cream, Body Mist and Perfume offer a pretty mix of fresh fruits, sensual florals and creamy vanilla. Grab a Rollerball to throw in your bag for those late night study sessions!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Every girl on-the-go will appreciate our adorable Baggu Backpack! With its floral print, double strap and (washing machine-friendly!) cotton canvas, it offers the perfect harmony of cute and functional. Now all that’s left to do is grab your monogrammed notebooks and head to class in style!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

After a long day of class, you deserve to unwind in style. We may be a little biased, but our sleep sets are some of the absolute cutest around. Let’s start with our Softest Modal Bralette and Mini Boyfrief. Not only are they made of the softest (you guessed it!) modal, they have the sweetest scalloped lace trim. Throw on a Sleep Top and a pair of Boxers, or one of our Softest Sleep Robes, to drift off to dreamland.

Now that your dorm essentials have been picked out, are you ready for class to begin? The answer: You were born ready. Good luck – we know you’re going to do great! xo

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Vintage Boot

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

One of our favorite fashion bloggers, Cara from A Fashion Love Affair, is inspiring us with her look in our Vintage Boot Jean.

What inspired Cara’s look:
Wide leg jeans are back ladies and gentlemen, and I am so excited about it!

My favorite way to style wide leg jeans is by tucking in my top – it offsets the volume of the jeans and is instantly flattering. Pairing denim with denim is effortlessly cool, and adding big shades and gold accents dresses up the look to make it city -ready.

Music Monday: AEO Up Next: Vance Joy

AEO_UP_NEXT__HEADER_800X400

For this week’s installment of AEO Up Next, we present Aussie indie folkster, Vance Joy. He’s been super busy on tour and handling the new-found stardom that comes with a chart-topping hit. That hit is called “Riptide” and it’s just about the most simultaneously lighthearted and painful love song out right now. Check it out below and read on to get to know the man behind Vance Joy in the Q & A after the jump.

AEO:  People usually want to know what any artist’s influences are. But we’re going to make you narrow that down to the one album that truly affected your path in music.

Vance Joy:  Elliott Smith: Either/Or

AEO:  Where was your first show and what was it like?

VJ:  It was at the Queenscliff Music Festival when I was 10. I was with my family. My little sister and I sat near the edge of the stage as Jimmy Little played his set. We had had his album “Messenger” in the family car for a while before the show, so we knew the tunes. I have a few strong memories of that night.

AEO:  Anyone who’s seen any movies about rock bands knows that the tour bus can be like an extension of a wild backstage party or a place for band antics. Tell us the craziest or funniest tour bus story to date.

VJ:  Our tour bus isn’t crazy at all it is pretty calm. On the long road trips you need to just zone out and read or watch some t.v show. We have had some late night music dancing sessions which have been memorable. I get so pumped up listening to “Turn Down For What.” And also Sheryl Crow “If It Makes You Happy”, but mainly “Turn Down For What”. We were driving around Maine with turn down for what pumping and getting so fired up.

AEO:  What was the last song you played on your phone?

VJ:  “Mad World” cat Stevens

AEO:  What’s your favorite thing to do when you have a creative block that you need to work through?

VJ:  Go run errands and make them the focus. Make coffee dates and run around like a headless chook.

AEO:  Top 5 albums that anyone who’s reading this should go out and buy right now:

VJ:  Cat Stevens – Tea for the TillermanColdplay – Rush of Blood to the HeadElliott Smith – Figure 8Father John Misty – Fear funKillers – Day and Age

Now that you’ve gotten to know about Vance, channel his look with #AEOStyle.

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Loose

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

Saul from Trend Styled recently wore our Loose Jean for a laid-back summer weekend look. It’s our newest jean — loose, relaxed and ready for anything.

What inspired Saul’s look:
Weekends are all about relaxing… and there’s nothing more laid back than a baggy pair of denim and a t-shirt. I love a good light wash on my denim during the summer and you can never go wrong with a denim shirt like this AEO Denim Western shirt (usually found wrapped around my waist) in my summer shirting arsenal.
