Labor Day Outfit Guide

With fall right around the corner, Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to debut trends from the upcoming season. Although we’ll miss summer, we’re excited about vintage vibes and heritage prints, so naturally, we had to pull some of our favorite fall pieces like suede clogs and plaid button downs. We love the carefree contrast that shorter summer hemlines bring to these looks. Your only job this weekend? Soak up the last days of summer.

Girls
Stay cool at picnics this weekend in a breezy embroidered peasant dress. Dress up your outfit with suede clogs, one of our favorite shoes from the upcoming season, and add a fringe crossbody bag and stacked necklaces for a boho vibe.

AEO Top 5 Trends For Summer

Labor Day is just over one month away, which means there is still plenty of time to make the most of summer. We’ve been watching your #AEOSTYLE submissions for the past few weeks and have curated our top five favorite trends for summer based on what you’re wearing. Check out our list below, and make sure to shop the looks while summer is still hot.

Overalls
The unexpected summer MVP? Overalls! Give this youthful staple an updated twist by layering it with a crop top or dress it up by pairing it with heels and a lace shirt.

Soft Shorts
We’re all about combining comfort with style, and soft shorts are the perfect mix. From pretty prints to crochet details, soft shorts are your summer BFF. Pair your shorts with an elegant, flowing tee or be bold and mix prints!

Stripes
Summer is the season for boating and beach vacations, so naturally we love a nautical spin on our #AEOSTYLE. Rock classic pieces like swing dresses and tees with fun stripes all the way through the end of the season, especially when you’re on the water.

Ponchos
Hot days, cool nights – you know how it is. Ponchos are one of our favorite trends of the summer because of their versatility. Use them as an accessory over your favorite sundress or denim shorts or make them the star of your outfit. We also love how practical they are for nights when cookouts turn into bonfires!

Wide Brim Hats
Statement hats are one of this summer’s biggest accessories. No doubt you’ve seen them on nearly every head at all of the best music festivals – which is why you should have one, too! We think wide brim hats look amazing with maxi skirts or distressed shorts and a crop top.

The Girl and Goat: Open 7 days a week, this restaurant offers a bold twist on dishes from around the globe. Bonus, they offer a great wine selection for the connoisseur.  Pro tip: Make a reservation as early as possible! This place is extremely popular.
Waffles Cafe: They have a hybrid doughnut waffle known as a wonut. Need we say more? Pro Tip: Get there early! Once the wonuts are sold out, they’re done for the day.

See:
Alt-J: Any time we get a chance to see this Indie Rock band from England, we take it! From “Breezeblocks” to “Left Hand Free“, this band will have you hooked the moment they start playing.
Broods: This sibling duo from Nelson, New Zealand is definitely one to see. Their Indie Pop- Electronica sound encapsulates their listeners, making it hard to resist their style. We recommend “Bridges” and “Never Gonna Change.”

The War on Drugs: This Indie Rock band from Philadelphia has been making it’s name in the music industry since 2005. We love them so much, we’ve actually used their songs in our previous marketing campaigns and in store playlists! Check out “Red Eyes” and “An Ocean In Between The Waves” for music you’ll want to put on repeat all day long.

First Aid Kits: Another sibling duo we’ve fallen in love with are Klara and Johanna Söderberg from Sweden. Their Indie Folk sound is not only powerful, it’s endearingly catchy and sweet.  We love “Stay Gold” and “My Silver Lining.”

What Inspired Paola’s Look:
“Boy, do I love my denim! I consider myself a connoisseur of denim, if I may say so myself, and these Denim X Hi-Rise Jeggings, are my new favorite! What’s not to love about a HIGH WAISTED (perfect for figure) JEGGING, (soo comfy!). I decided to pair them up, with a white, off-the-shoulder blouse and heeled sandals, since we are in mid summer! These jeans are perfect for a day to night outfit, and since my days are always jam packed with meetings, I love being able to change from flats to heels and viola! I am ready to go!”
