Your Guide to Pulling off Fall Prints Like A Pro

Step away from the sun-kissed styles of summer and into the statement-making prints of fall. Bold, colorful prints are big this season – and for good reason. Read on for an intro to the latest and greatest prints – and what to wear with them.


Falling for Fall Prints

Prints like plaid, argyle, and houndstooth were made for this time of year and you’ll find them all over styles like high-waisted jeggings, skirts, tapered pants, and leggings this season.

AE High-Waisted Jegging

Smarten up your look with plaid jeggings and pair with a crewneck sweater in solid colors for a retro collegiate look, or ease into the printed life by pairing your fave jeans with a houndstooth print t-shirt.


Go Wild with Animal Prints

In case you haven’t heard, animal prints are back. Like… really, REALLY back. And this time around, they’re basically the new neutral – meaning you can literally swap them out for solids – so this is the trend to really GO FOR IT with. Mix fierce prints like leopard, cheetah, and snakeskin into your go-to fall basics, from tops, pants, and skirts to shoes and leggings.

AE Animal Print

Try high-waisted jeggings in a bold leopard print with a plush crew neck sweater – or mix patterns and pair them a printed sweatshirt. Cozy up to your wild side with animal print legging and a super-soft, oversized fleece hoodie. The options are ENDLESS.


Seeing Stripes

Go beyond the expected this season with rugby stripes, chunky stripes, pinstripes, and more fun takes on the classic print.

AE Stripe Tops

For a pop that won’t overwhelm your outfit, try a fleece sweatshirt with a chest stripe. Or go all out with a busier pinstripe jegging paired with a super soft sweater.


Tied Up in Tie Dye

Tie-dye might seem like a summer-only print, but in more subdued hues, it instantly becomes an irresistible addition to your fall wardrobe.

Another way to translate this warmer-weather print for fall?? Layers! A tie-dye t-shirt under a denim jacket creates a grunge-inspired edge, or go for more of a sporty lounge look by pairing a tie-dye hoodie with a leggings or yoga pants in a colorful print.
