“This look has me super excited to snuggle on the couch, with a cup of hot cocoa watching holidays movies (hmm hello all time fave Elf). The dress is actually a nightie, but I teamed up with Aerie to show you how you can style it into a casual outfit for those last warm Fall days, as part of their Aerie REAL campaign.”
As the holiday season approaches, our natural instinct to get cozy and stay warm kicks into gear. Our go-to shirt this winter is our Ahhhmazingly Soft Boyfriend Shirt – our take on the ultimate cold weather staple, the flannel. We’re not kidding around with this one; it’s so soft, you’ll literally never want to take it off! Blogger Kassala Holdsclaw styled the shirt in a classic buffalo pattern & showed us how to take a flannel from day to night. Check out Kassala’s outfit featuring the AEO Ahhhmazingly Soft Boyfriend Shirt below!
“Hi, I’m Kassala. I’m a 23-year-old from Montana – a small town in the middle of nowhere. I recently made the big move to New York city to turn my passions into a career. I love being able to share my life with everyone over social media through fashion, photography, and traveling.”
What Inspired Kassala’s Look:
“It’s my favorite time of year, the weather is changing. I love fall and winter fashion. I was inspired by the weather to dress up cozy pieces. The flannel is perfect for staying warm and being stylish. I have a very minimal style all together, so I styled the plaid button down with black skinny jeans, black ankle boots. I added a leather jacket to give the look a little more edge.”
Friendsgiving (aka REALgiving) is coming and our stylist knows just what you need… leggings and a loose top so you can eat a second helping of stuffing!
Our Hi-Rise Play Leggings are the ultimate Friendsgiving bottoms: supportive for filling up on all the deliciousness, and super soft for spending the night around the table with friends. Wear it with our Ruffle Sleeve Peasant Top and leave extra room for extra seconds, and add our Boucle Turtleneck Sweater over it if it’s a chilly night.
As seen on Iskra and as styled by Erin! Our stylist got our #AerieREAL role model ready for a full day in NYC last week with our newest Rise & Shine satin PJ set.

Your go-to cold-weather #AEOSTYLE essential is back & better than ever. In softer fabrics & the best fits, it’s time to add flannels and plaids back into your look. We want to help you get the most out of your flannel shirt this season, so we rounded up a few of our favorite ways to style them for girls and guys. Keep scrolling to check out our top picks for how to wear flannels this season.
Mix Fabrics: Take an unexpected approach with your plaid and wear it over a velvet dress. To make this look work, be sure that the flannel and dress are in the same color family.
Around the Waist: Bring the 90s to 2016. Keep a flannel tied around your waist as a cool way to bring color to your outfit – plus, it’s right there in case you need an extra layer. We like this look with a bomber jacket on top.
Bundled Up: If you’re going for an easy way to wear flannel, just button it up! This tried-and-true option doesn’t have to be complicated. Finish off the look with a cozy beanie.
Layer It: Layers are flannel’s best friend. Instead of pulling on a jacket, layer your flannel with a cardigan or sweater. This is a great way to add some depth and texture to your look.
Over a T-Shirt: Go for a classic look by throwing your flannel over a time-tested tee. This season is made for layering – and so are flannels.
Under a Vest: Take your flannel outside by popping on a warm vest – puffer, sherpa, the choice is yours! If the vest is neutral, add some color to the look with a vibrant flannel.
Buttoned Up: Go from relaxed to buttoned up… by buttoning it up! This look will take you from hanging with friends to meeting the parents this season.
Mix Prints: Be adventurous with your #AEOSTYLE. Make sure one color threads throughout all of your pieces (hint: it’s easiest to mix patterns when one piece is a neutral. A bold print contrasts best with a busy flannel.
Whether she’s at the gym or lounging with her pup, Liz of @ElizaEllen understands the importance of looking and feeling great.
“If I’m not at work, then I’m more than likely doing one of two things: working out or lounging on my couch in front of the TV. Luckily, I can comfortably – and stylishly – do both in the new Aerie “Chill. Play. Move.” line!”
“The leggings are on another level of comfortable – and I love mixing and matching the sports bras! It’s also necessary for my gym clothes to be cute. If I have to feel the burn, then I better look fabulous while doing it. 😏😉 Whether I’m on the couch, at the gym, or grabbing a cup of coffee, I know Aerie will keep me comfortable and cute.” Shop Liz’s Look: Hi-Rise Play Legging | Move Cross-Back Tank | Move Sports Bra | Move Zip-Front Sports Bra
