What Inspired Cara’s Outfit:
I fell in love with this jacket, it is the perfect combo between cozy and cool, pairing perfectly with torn denim as it does with a long maxi dress. I chose to style the jacket with black jeggings and black knee high boots (loving this trend!) to really pull the focus of the look to the jacket.  The jacket is a great way to easily pull color and print into your look with just one piece!AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: MOTO JACKET

What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
Winter in the south means hot one day, cold the next (literally) so I have become a huge fan of layers. This moto Jacket is the perfect piece to layer on top of a sweater dress with a faux fur snood for a colder night and can easily be worn with jeans a tee for something a little more casual for one of these 70 degree days.

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:

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: THE PONCHO AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: THE PONCHO

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 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!

Style Challenge: The Graphic Sweater Style Challenge: The Graphic Sweater

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:

Style Challenge: The Graphic Sweater Style Challenge: The Graphic Sweater

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!

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: The Jogger

Whether you’re staying home or traveling to be with family this Thanksgiving, our Jogger is going to be your new best friend. Between the relaxed fit and drawstring waist, you’ll be thankful you opted for this go-to pant after your second helping of turkey and stuffing.

Bloggers, Ryan from Fashionisto Diaries and Makayla from Fashionably Kay, show us how they style our Jogger for the holiday.

Meet Ryan:
I started Fashionisto Diaries in high school as a way to keep in touch with friends. Now, I am able to share my style with friends all around the world! During my sophomore year of high school I interviewed Tim Gunn. After that interview, I knew I wanted to interview more people and tell them my opinion on fashion. My style is casual preppy. I feel it can be replicated and that’s what I want. I believe fashion is achievable, but style is something you learn. Fashionisto Diaries is my journey of understanding my own personal style and everything else that happens along the way.

DSC_5740 DSC_5769

What Inspired Ryan’s Look:
I wanted to go outside my comfort zone for this look! I’ve really never worn flannel before and I don’t wear a lot of colored pants. This was the perfect start and I believe this look came together without looking to “christmas-y.” I wore this look around the city, but you can wear it anywhere. The flannel kept me super warm and the joggers allowed me to be active during the day, while looking chic.

What Inspired Kay’s Look:
This outfit was inspired by a cozy city look. I love a comfortable yet chic style that can take you from running errands to lounging around at home. I paired it with an AEO sweater to create a black and white look, which happens to be my favorite. These joggers are perfect for it all! IMG_1947 (2)
