How To Wear the All White Trend

With a new season officially in our midst (okay, minus the snow), we’re all about the color white. Going monochrome can be tricky, especially with a color that’s typically taboo in the cooler months. At AEO, we like to ignore that fashion rule and take this look to the next level. Today, we’re showing you how to wear all white without looking like a snowman. Our secret? Accessories! Breaking up a monochrome outfit with fun additions like strappy bralettes, knit beanies & tall boots keep the look on-trend and fresh without feeling overwhelming. Check out our two all white looks below!

Keep it cool in all white #AEOSTYLE: Go for an unexpected look by pairing our destroyed white Tomgirl Jean with a white puffer vest. A long-sleeved tee underneath the vest – in white, of course – keeps the outfit seasonably appropriate. A lacy, strappy bralette adds a feminine touch to the outfit – choose any shade you’d like for a fun pop of color. Our shoe of choice is a Birkenstock since temps are warmer than usual right now, but if you’re stuck in the cold, wear a great cozy sock in a neutral color, too. Channel a snow bunny vibe by finishing the look with a furry, chunky knit beanie.

Channel boho vibes in all white lace: If you’re already sick of Winter (even though it’s just started), try wearing all white to transition into an early Spring. A pretty lace dress with bell sleeves has a romantic feel that’s perfect for a Winter date night. Paired with a statement necklace that won’t overpower the dress, this is an all white style that will land you on the fashion “do” list. Complete the outfit with knee high boots in a neutral color and boho details like lace up details.

Now & Layer: AEO Parkas

We hate to break it to you, but hot temps won’t last forever. When staying warm is high on our list of priorities (think late fall walks and winter adventures), we turn to our collection of parkas. Not to brag, but our parkas are pretty awesome. With just enough weight from polarlite insulation to keep you cozy, but not so much heft that you feel like Randy from A Christmas Story, AEO parkas are perfect for layering. Plus, they have a few key details that will differentiate them from your average winter coat. We want to show you why our parkas are an outerwear staple, so check out our favorite men’s and women’s parkas below.

What Inspired Kristin’s Look:
“I’ve been on a family trip in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, having a blast brushing up on my ski skills. During our down time, tubing is the way to go {preferably with a lift involved}. These comfy sweats + henley-style shirt have been a fashionable alternative to the typical bulky attire.”

“After a long day of skiing on the slopes, there’s nothing I’d rather do then cozy up in my loungewear with a cup of coffee. Having access to a porch with a beautiful view doesn’t hurt.”

A Holiday Letter From Jen Foyle

HI AERIE GIRLS!

Let’s get real… Holiday shopping begins in less than 40 days and it’s time to get in the spirit! NO worries — Aerie has everything you need for every girl on your list—and some special treats for yourself, too! 

A Holiday Letter From Jen Foyle

I’m feeling EXTRA excited about this season because it is our most beautiful collection to date AND one of the most fun, too. I love every piece but a few of our favorite things are our Merry Aerie PJ Pants in fresh plaids and cutie prints, our joggers are the chicest you can find and totally necessary for chilly days.

We have tons of cozy fleece and accessories with the most adorable pom-poms ever. YOU have to have a pom-pom hat or pair of mittens this year! Our blanket scarves are cloud soft and feel like you’re wearing your childhood blanket. Everyone is wearing them in our office already. They are so special. The perfect gift (and we don’t believe in perfection!) We’re also very proud to launch our 5th fragrance, COZY UP… our yummiest, most delicious scent yet. It’s like wearing cotton candy! And if you’re not sure what to get, you can always get one of our gift sets—all wrapped up in our signature holiday ribbon.

And no holiday would be complete without giving back. This year we decided to sell our gift boxes for 50 cents each and donate the money to the non-profit Bright Pink, whose mission is to save young women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer. Now that’s REAL.

Remember, no matter what you give this holiday being the REAL you is the best gift you can give anyone!

Mistletoe Kisses & Holiday Wishes…
