How to Style the Blanket Scarf

“Aerie has been one of my favorite brands since college because of their ultra-soft fabrics, attainable price points, and message of true beauty and acceptance. The Bonfire Sweater and Blanket Scarf are now two of the softest and coziest pieces in my closet!”

“I wear mostly neutrals, so this beautiful mustard color is the perfect pop of color for fall. I love the slightly oversized cut because it’s flattering with jeans, but also comfy enough to lounge in at home. I must admit that I own a pretty big collection of scarves, but this blanket scarf is by far the softest I own. It’s comfortable enough to wear all day, and I love that it’s big enough to wrap up in on chilly fall evenings.”

How To Style Leggings With Laura

Leggings have been on our must-have list for the past several seasons, but we’re especially excited about our Winter leggings this year. We’re offering more variety than ever – sweater fabric, bold patterns, photo real prints and, of course, the basic, go-with-everything hi-rise legging. Because we were feeling overwhelmed by all the amazing leggings, we turned to our favorite Styling Manager, Laura, for styling tips. Below, Laura pulled together two different looks featuring leggings to fit every style, from sporty athleisure to cozy comfort.

Look #1: Winterized Athleisure
We love the way printed leggings look paired back to sporty sneakers. The gold details on these sneaks elevate them from the average sport shoe, making this athleisure look on trend. Keep it seasonal with a heavier parka, and play with color by contrasting navy and grey hues with a sienna hoodie and a vibrant winter hat.


Shop the Look:
AEO Hi-Rise Legging
AEO Ribbed Pullover Hoodie
K-Swiss Belmont Sneaker
Wool Parka
AEO Patterned Beanie

Look #2: Cozy Comfort
Sweater leggings are stealing the show this season, so let them do the talking for this look. Pair bold patterned sweater leggings back to a cream sweater with cool side zip features, and add a bit of shine with gold sneakers. Let a grey bralette peek out beneath the sweater for a flirty finish to the look.


Shop the Look:
AEO Hi-Rise Sweater Legging
AEO Side Zip Sweater
AEO Slip On Platform Sneaker
Aerie Lace Bralette

#AEOSTYLE Roundup: Blanket Ponchos

This season, one of our favorite layering pieces is the blanket poncho – for obvious reason! We love getting away with comfortable and stylish fashion, and the blanket poncho is exactly that. With tons of interesting patterns and textures in our latest collection, ponchos and cardigans definitely aren’t boring anymore. For days when it’s not cold enough to wear a coat but you want an added layer of warmth, wrap yourself up in a blanket cardigan or blanket poncho. Because they’re a layering piece, ponchos look great with your basic jegging or even an on-trend shift dress. Accessorize with a wide brim hat or statement necklace, and don’t forget a stacked heeled bootie.

How to Make Halloween Treats

In honor of National Candy Corn Day we asked Annie, the baker behind the yummy Bakin You Crazy Instagram account,  to show us how to whip together her favorite candy corn treat! Read on to learn how to whip up her sweet and spooky recipe.

Triple Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies

How to Make Halloween Treats

Yields 20-24 normal size cookies or 6-8 jumbo cookies

1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 table spoons milk
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup white chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup candy corn (plus more to place on top, optional)

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 1

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 45 seconds or until completely melted.
  3. Add sugar to butter. Beat on low until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla, eggs and milk to butter and sugar mixture. Mix on low until thorough combined.
  5. In separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, pudding, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Slowly, pour flour mixture into butter mixture while beating on low.
  7. Add chocolate chips and mix. (DISCLAIMER: You can add candy corn to cookie dough now or directly after cookies are removed from oven. The latter prevents unpredictable cookie shapes due to melted candy corn.

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 2

  1. Place heaping tables spoons of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (DISCLAIMER: If candy corn was mixed into dough, make sure no candy corn is in direct contact with the baking sheet. This will result in deformed cookies. Instead, shape dough so candy corn is on top or inside the ball of cookie dough.)
  2. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on oven. Cookies should look gooey and soft. Do not over bake!!
  3. For picture perfect cookies, additional chocolate chips and candy corn can be placed on warm cookies with a slight push.
  4. The cookies should remain soft and fudgy when cool… If they last that long!
  5. Voilà! Delicious Halloween treats!

10 Must Have Fall Essentials

We’re swooning over all of the new Fall arrivals that hit our website last week and will land in stores on 11.5. We have so many favorite pieces from the updated collection that we had to ask our Styling Manager, Laura, to help us narrow down all of the amazing jeans, sweaters, boots, coats and accessories to her only top ten fall essentials. Laura’s picks have everything from cozy mock neck sweaters to the warmest boyfriend flannels and of course our newest denim collection, Denim X Café. Plus, we can’t forget to mention all of the beautiful color options across all of the Fall’s best styles. Check out Laura’s Top 10 Fall Essentials below, and make the last of the season the best of the season.

10 Must Have Fall Essentials

What we love most about Laura’s picks is that you could definitely mix and match these pieces several ways to make your own mini closet. A drapey tank would pair perfectly under a flannel or denim button down, and for ultimate layering add the cable knit cardigan on top! A cropped sweater and hi-rise destructed denim are on-trend and would look great under a heavier coat like a plaid blazer or cocoon jacket. Finish off any outfit with season-right ankle booties and a long pendant necklace.

Shop Laura’s Must-Have Fall Essentials:
AEO Denim X Café Hi-Rise Jegging
AEO Mock Neck Cropped Sweater
AEO Hooded Cocoon Coat (Coming Soon!)
AEO Oversized Plaid Blazer
AEO Canyon Boyfriend Flannel (Color Coming Soon!)
AEO Denim Western  Shirt
AEO Cable Knit Toggle Cardigan
AEO Mesh Peasant Top
AEO Buckle Stretch Bootie
AEO Needle Pendant Necklace

DIY Painted Pumpkins

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, and we can’t wait to see all the spooky surprises this year has in store. One of our favorite ways to prep for the holiday is by decorating pumpkins. Since October 26 is National Pumpkin Day, we ‘re kicking off Halloween week with a tutorial to show you just how easy it is to design and paint your own stenciled pumpkins. The end result looks like it took endless hours, but DIY Painted Pumpkins are actually easy and fun to create. Read on to see how you can personalize your fall décor today!

What You’ll Need: 

  • Pumpkins (as many as you’d like – we used three)
  • Permanent maker (fine-tipped works best)
  • Masking tape
  • Stencil of your design
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Palette or paper plate
  • Fine-tipped paintbrushes


DIY Painted Pumpkins

Step 1: Gather all of your supplies. You can create your own stencil or buy one pre-made! We drew our Eagle design on thin cardboard and cut out the center.

Step 2: Tape the stencil to the pumpkin with masking tape. Make sure it’s secure!

Step 3: Using a fine-tipped permanent marker, draw around the stencil to outline your design on the pumpkin.

Step 4: Take off the stencil and begin filling in your design with paint. You can use a palette or a paper plate to hold the paint.We kept it minimalistic using black paint only, but you could use multiple colors if you’d like. Be sure to go slowly so that you stay inside the stenciled design.

Step 5: Let it dry! In the meantime, continue with your other pumpkins.
