We just gotta say. You’ve got style.
Whether you’re throwing on a last-minute outfit before class or getting dressed for a day out with friends (hello, harvest festivals and pumpkin patches), you know how to put an outfit together. Read on to see how others are wearing the latest fall must-haves, and to get some layering season style inspo!
Fall Prints? Yes, Please.
You might’ve already heard about how we’re all about fall prints right now, but if you haven’t, here’s the deal. Prints. Are. BACK! Choose from fall faves like argyle, plaid, houndstooth, stripes, and more in all the brightly colored hues that’ll remind you of falling leaves and pumpkins. Wear them up top in styles like striped sweaters and oversized cardigans, or wear them on the bottom with printed jeggings and plaid joggers.
Want to make your look pop even more this season? Add a layer as you head out the door. Grab a flannel shirt and throw it on over a band t-shirt for a grunge-inspired look, or choose a soft cardigan in a crisp color to take a little bit of autumn with you wherever you go. Choose a fleece or Sherpa pullover in stand-out prints like leopard and subdued tie dye to take soft to the next level.
Ripped (and Repaired) Jeans
What goes best with all these fall prints and layers? Ripped jeans, of course. Distressed jeans can range from all-out destruction with big, ripped knee holes to lightly frayed hems, ripped and repaired holes, and patches. And if you thought light wash jeans were only for summer, think again. Wear this year-round style with boots and sneakers to bring it into the current season.

There’s nothing quite like the feel of early fall – crisp mornings, sparkling sunsets, and all kinds of soft layers to embrace that easy autumn chill. Somewhere in-between the apple-picking, costume parties, and bonfires, though, you’ll feel the holidays fast approaching. It may seem way too soon to start thinking about stocking stuffers and grab bags, but trust us, it’s not.
If there’s one thing worse than showing up a month or two early to the holiday party, it’s showing up late… without a gift. We’ve all been there – the week, day, or night before the big gift exchange – bustling through an over-crowded mall, analyzing expensive overnight shipping options, wishing we’d taken care of this earlier.
Aside from avoiding the unrivaled stress of last-minute holiday shopping, here are a few of the best reasons to consider making your list a little sooner, rather than later. Like, now.
1) Give more thoughtful gifts.
When you’re not rushing to cross something off your list, you have time to consider what people REALLY want, and find a gift you know they’ll love.
Hint: Consider their MOOD for a gift that gives them all the right feels, or wrap up their favorite fit and give them something they’ll wear all year long.
2) Reclaim your holiday time.
Not only will you have fewer lines and less traffic to deal with if you start shopping now, you won’t have to fight the holiday crowds in December. That means you’ll actually get to ENJOY the holidays when they get here, with plenty of time for getting all kinds of festive.
Hint: You can already find some of the season’s best styles to give (and get!) so start stocking up for everyone on your list now. Look for cozy-soft sherpa, throwback colorblocking, and athletic or slightly oversized silhouettes.
3) You might even find a something for yourself.
Once your gifts are wrapped, you can start thinking about what YOU really want. Start putting together your Favorites list now on ae.com, and share it with your friends and fam.
Hint: Everyone needs a great flannel to beat the chill, especially when they’re this amazingly soft. They make a perfect gift for your bestie, your bae, your brother, yourself…
Now that it’s October, it’s officially time to start figuring out your Halloween plans… What parties to hit up, where to find the best spooky treats, and whether or not to finally commit to that inflatable T-Rex suit.
Or maybe you’re just looking for a comfortable, low-key costume you can put together with stuff already in your closet. Something fun and festive you can wear to work or class or wherever you’ll be before meeting up with friends.
That’s the vibe we’re going for this year, so we asked the AE team to come up with some easy, creative costumes for you to recreate or to inspire your unique Halloween look. Boo yah!
Look 1: Happy Hippie
Candice – Associate Web Designer
Any costume that incorporates your favorite jeans is an automatic winner. Those flares you’ve been loving were made with flower child vibes in mind, so you’ll need only a few more pieces to finish this look. Layer on a couple of your flowiest tops (the more prints, the better!), slip on some Birks, and you’ll be feelin’ groovy.
Look 2: Hip Lumberjack
Isaiah – Inbound Operations Analyst
Not all superheroes wear capes, and not all lumberjacks wear plaid. Layered with a hoodie, your favorite solid flannel fits perfectly with that whole rugged and rustic vibe. A pair of suspenders, whatever jeans you’re already wearing (are you noticing a trend here?), plus some work boots, and you’ve got yourself a costume!
Look 3: Modern Angel
Chloe – Brand Coordinator
Keep your look light and pretty with a tonal take on the Halloween theme. You can DIY your own halo, but all you REALLY need is a fluttery white top, your go-to sneakers, and that bleached-out pair of high-waisted jeggings you lived in all summer. As if you needed an excuse to wear white jeans after Labor Day, lol.
Look 4: Dapper Penguin
Sam – Brand Coordinator
Play it cool with a fresh take on everyone’s favorite flightless bird. Skip the tux in favor of dark jeans with a white shirt and black vest combo. Dress it up with a bow tie and gloves, and go for a chill, dramatic effect with just a touch of face paint. It IS Halloween, after all.
Look 5: Classic Cowgirl
Olivia – Email Coordinator
Jeans, plaid shirt, denim jacket, and some boots or booties! Chances are, you have all or most of these things in your closet already. The hat may complete the look, but the way you style everything else is what makes this classic costume fresh and unique to you.
Look 6: Neutral Bear
Shane – Associate Brand Manager
Sure, you could just do the face paint and bear ears with any old outfit, but leaning into the theme with a head-to-toe tonal look really takes things up a notch. Layer on whatever neutrals you feel best in and throw on a fun accessory to set everything off.
