Winter Layering Basics

Our obsession with the Blanket Scarf continues. But really, can you blame us? Our girl Courtney, the blogger behind Color Me Courtney shows us how she does winter layering with a few basics accented by denim on denim and a bold lip. It’s safe to say, we’re in love.

Winter Layering BasicsWinter Layering BasicsWhat inspired Courtney’s Look:
A little blue goes a long way, but what about a lot of blue? Well that has to go some place awesome! I was so inspired by the dual blues in this blanket scarf, that I decided to dive headfirst into denim on denim.

Everyone loves a good blanket scarf, especially one that can keep you warm and toasty, while still looking cool. A white blanket scarf breathes new life into this trend by giving it a refreshing new twist. A white blanket scarf like this can carry you all the way through the last bit of winter when paired with double denim, a navy coat, or even a little blue dress and over-the-knee boots for a dressier look!

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Destroyed Denim

We have the best destroyed denim to break into a new year. Each pair has been carefully deconstructed and reconstructed to give you the perfect broken in look. With 23 fits and 117 washes, we know you’ll find the perfect style to help create memories that last.

What Inspired Sara’s Look:
Now I don’t know about you, but I tend to wear the same pair of denim until they absolutely fall apart because I dread going “jean’s shopping.” While my stature is petite, I have muscular thighs and calves. I am learning to appreciate my curves, but have a tough time finding jeans with the best balance of stretch, comfort and fit. Recently, I’ve discovered and fallen in love with American Eagle’s denim, especially their jeggings. They are available in different waistlines, washes, and lengths while maintaining the most wearable stretch and control. Ah, I can’t rave about them enough. I’ve collected a few of the different denim shades and explored their high-waisted options.

The lighter wash is extremely versatile and I adore the distressed accents to add some edge to your look. They are great for a casual day shopping, stylish for a lunch date with your gal pals, yet relaxed enough to wear for a road trip. Jeans are a necessity for these winter months ahead and look amazing paired with boots and a shaggy knit jacket!

What To Wear: New Year’s Eve

We can all agree that New Year’s Eve is a time to shine. Whether you’re ringing in the new year out on the town or staying in with family and friends, a little bit of sparkle can go a long way.

Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish shows us how she styles her favorite Aerie finds to watch the ball drop.

What inspired Allexis’s Looks:
Hey friends! When it comes to NYE we all know there are really only two ways to celebrate: out on the town with friends, or snuggled in at home with loved ones. To make your New Year’s Eve a little easier I put together a look for you all for each way to celebrate. I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ringing in the new year with a night out on the town I want to be warm, comfortable, and cute. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging a dress down all night or having freezing bare legs. These cute sequined leggings are THE perfect piece to meet those needs without having to compromise looking great!

To complete the look and keep it fun, I paired these bad boys with a fun printed sweater and wedges that are comfy enough to dance the night away in. Sequins are really a no brainer when it comes to NYE and some other fun ways to style some cute sequined leggings would be with a fun graphic tee and classic pair of pumps, or with a boyfriend blazer and plain white tee. The possibilities are endless and there’s really no way to go wrong with these leggings!

For a night in, watching the ball drop on Times Square on the good old television, the key to a cute look is keeping it cozy while bringing in fun sparkly elements that make it so it doesn’t just feel like another boring night at home! This sequined bralette layered underneath this soft henley is the perfect way to add that bit of New Year’s fun while these cozy little knit PJ shorts keep things casual and comfy!

Holiday Gifting: The Blanket Scarf

Once you’re done creating your own mini stockpile of Aerie Blanket Scarves, it’s time to think about the special people in your life. The holidays are, of course, a time for giving. And who wouldn’t want an extra large, super soft (not-to-mention super cute!) blanket scarf to add to their winter wardrobe?

Our girl Kristin from Living in Color Print couldn’t agree more. Check out her favorite Aerie Blanket Scarves below!

Why Kristin loves the blanket scarf:
I personally can’t get enough of them! I think I’ve added about 8 new prints, colors and patterns to my collection this year, and the season isn’t even over! A blanket scarf if a great way to mix up a look without too much effort. For example: take a simple look like jeans and a solid long sleeve shirt – add in a plaid blanket scarf, or a stripe version. Either option completely transforms the look a little differently without the need to change anything else. A definite must-have for the year!
