Year round staple: the Military jacket

Look no further… your search for the perfect military jacket has come to an end and to top it off we created three versatile looks starring this must have piece to inspire your style. Our fresh take on this timeless trend features a soft cotton canvas body, leather-like long sleeves and a fleece hoodie.  Once you add this jacket to your wardrobe you will soon learn how frequently you will be sporting it or as we simply say: just become obsessed with it. Our favorite way to wear this look is the unexpected way, by pairing the jacket with a feminine dress and boots.  Too daring for you… fear not fashionistas, there is basically no wrong way to wear this jacket – so go ahead, push the style boundaries and create your own military inspired #AEOStyle.

What’s Hot For Summer: Camo and Global Prints

One of the best things about summer is the #AEOStyle that goes with it. This season, camo is sticking around for guys while ikat and global prints are still top of the trend list for women. Check out some of our favorite pieces below!

Guys:  The menswear catwalks were flooded with camo this year and this print is such a huge trend that it is being considered the new khaki. To help you incorporate this look into your wardrobe, we’ve  taken the rugged yet fun print to new levels by throwing it on unexpected items like canvas sneakers, bags and hats. Our favorite piece has to be the camo cargo short paired back to classics like chambray or workwear shirts and slip on sneakers for a low key vibe.  Luckily, the print is muted enough to pair with any color you want… so go ahead, what are you waiting for... step up your #AEOStyle, by rocking your camo with bold colors like citron or neon pink. Your fashion game has never looked so good.

Stylist Tip: Only wear ONE piece of camo at a time. (you will thank us for this)

Shop the look:  Camo SneakerCanvas Backpack | 12″ Ripstop Cargo Short

Girls:  Ikat and global prints have been a favorite in our styling and fashion world this year (as well as in our apartments, think pillows and curtains!) and luckily for us it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. To keep the look fresh, we’ve evolved the trend into a broader scope of products.  If you haven’t tried the global trend already you should. Whatever your style is,  you can easily incorporate the print into your look, from the boho girl with a backpack to the preppier girl in a classic short. We love this trend paired back to neutral pieces allowing it to make a statement – a classic denim shirt with bold print shorts are a summer staple. The printed backpack really pops against a solid maxi dress.

Stylist Tip: The same camo tip applies for ikat, only one piece at a time… just sayin’
