AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: QUILTED VEST

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.

Meet McArthur:
McArthur (mostly known as Mac) is a millennial menswear blogger based out of New York. His blog, Daily Mister, was created for guys everywhere to get a dose of style and obscure pop culture references.

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.

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: THE PONCHO

When we say that our Patterned Sweater Poncho is the perfect piece to layer over every fall to winter look, we mean it. Between it’s cozy wide ribbed cowl neck, earth tone hues and tonal pattern, what’s not to love?

We asked bloggers Shannon from Upbeat Soles and Nifesimi from Skinny Hipster to show us how they style this must-have item below.

Meet Shannon:
 I am a born and raised Florida girl that is a medical professional by day, fashion blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are parents to a crazy Aussie mix and kitty. I created Upbeat Soles as a way to express my fashion juices that are held in by wearing scrubs most of the days. I also believe that fashion doesn’t need to cost an arm and leg and that you can look fabulous on any budget!

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!

What inspired Nifesimi’s Look:
One of the items I love wearing during cold seasons are ponchos.  They work well on all body types and really keeps me warm.  I took a break from heels and dressed the poncho down by wearing a denim on denim look with moccasins.

Style Challenge: The Graphic Sweater

Sweater weather is upon us and there’s no better way to celebrate than with one of our cute and cozy Graphic Sweaters. Pair with your favorite AEO Denim or comfy Leggings and your #SweaterWeather #OOTD will be complete.

See how bloggers babes, Jen from  Skirt The Rules, Bethany from Bethany Kate and Jessica from The Steele Maiden style this cozy, must-have sweater below.

What Inspired Jen’s Look:
When it feels like 10°F outside, you better believe I’ll be bundled up from head to toe.  To me, comfort is key, but looking put-together comes in a close second.  I love the coziness of a thick, knit sweater with a simple pair of leggings.  Chunky-heeled booties keep the outfit looking refined while a pom beanie adds a little bit of holiday cheer.

Meet Bethany:
Bethany is the writer of the style blog Bethany Kate. The blog features her own personal style as well as the style of her little girl Grace (who’s quickly becoming a bit of a fashionista herself!). She describes her style as classic and feminine and is always on the hunt for fun new pieces. She loves looking for outfit inspiration and hopes to inspire others, too!

What inspired Bethany’s Look:
I’m a huge fan of plaid and if you raid my wardrobe you will find many a plaid scarf, but a limited selection of other plaid clothing items. This is because I generally like a hint of the pattern in an outfit but find it a little bold to wear as a whole garment. When I saw this sweater at Aerie I knew it was the perfect way to transition plaid into other aspects of my closet. The subtle nature of the pattern means that it’s not overbearing and made it easy to style. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with navy denim skinny jeans (which highlight the navy stripe in the sweater) and a neutral bag and booties. The neutral accessories ensure that the sweater is the focal point of the outfit. I love this sweater for fall going into winter. It’s definitely the prettiest, coziest piece I’ve bought to date this season!

Meet Jessica:
Born in Pennsylvania, living in New York City, and always planning her next adventure, Jessica Steele is the style blogger behind The Steele Maiden. When she’s not blogging you can find her working as a Graphic Designer, exploring city streets, or shoe shopping.

What inspired Jessica’s Look:
Going home to PA for the holidays means more casual looks than I usually wear in NYC – but I still like to throw in a few signature touches. I started with this over-sized sweater – it’s a great basic and the graphic ‘Oui’ adds a bit of French fun.  I can never resist a little print mixing so I grabbed my favorite plaid blanket scarf and leopard booties, then topped it off with a pop of color from this bright tote.  Distressed denim and ivory mittens kept me warm and cozy for an afternoon outdoors.. dreaming of my next trip to Paris!
