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.

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!

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.

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)

STYLE CHALLENGE: THE CAPE STYLE CHALLENGE: THE CAPE

What Inspired Jessica’s Look:
When I’m not dressed up in my fanciest dresses for festive fetes, you can usually find me relaxing and unwinding around my apartment during the holiday season. My off-duty attire revolves around comfortable and cozy basics that I can mix and match. The Aerie Cape is the perfect PJ-topper because it’s super snuggly, not bulky at all (you can layer it over long sleeves!), and so apres-ski chic, too. Who knew snuggly and stylish could work together?! (And you can’t beat the fuzzy hood!)

What Inspired Jessica’s Look:
My inspiration for this perfect Cape was keeping the rest of my look pretty simple to let the bold piece standout. I paired it with my favorite Skinny Jeans from AE and my go to booties this fall. The color of the long sleeve top provides the perfect amount of contrast to the grey poncho to pull the whole look together.

What inspired Justin’s look:
Leaves are falling and winter is in full swing here in New York City. You’re surrounded by a pretty dismal and drab environment – naked trees, grey skies, and more concrete than you can imagine. During the winter months, I like to play on the cheerful festivity of the holidays and wear more bold colors, like this royal purple. Paired with my leather vest and this spectacular pair of AEO Vintage Denim, I add a little edge to my holiday wardrobe.

What inspired Jamal’s look:
In a city that dresses in all black when the temp drops I believe we could all use a bit of color in our lives when Fall comes around. This outfit was inspired by one of my favorites colors, yellow! I went for a preppy look but didn’t want to make it too preppy so I replaced the traditional plaid shirt with a denim shirt and swapped out the traditional boat shoe for a cherry red sneaker. Stylish and comfy, thats the motto.
