Styled by You: Fall Outfits We’re Into

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.

Statement-Making Layers

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.

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

AE Halloween Idea: 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

AE Halloween Idea: 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

AE Halloween Idea: 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

AE Halloween Idea: 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

AE Halloween Idea: 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

AE Halloween Idea: 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.

Fall Faves: Sweaters & Fleece Hoodies

You know what time it is – the best time of the year. It’s the season of pumpkin-flavored everything, falling leaves, and breaking out all your favorite cold-weather sweaters and fleece hoodies. These fall staples give you tons of options for changing up your style and keeping cozy when temps drop.



Sweater Weather = Better Weather

Pullover sweaters are a dream come true this time of year, whether you’re picking apples, exploring a corn maze, or just walking home from class on a chilly day. With lightweight and heavier knit options, plus fits including cropped, oversized, and boxy, there’s a sweater for every outfit.

AE Pullover Sweaters

Go for a classic crewneck sweater in an anything-but-ordinary animal print, or go old-school in a cropped v-neck with a retro-collegiate vibe. Love henleys but want something warmer? A pullover henley sweater has that casual vibe of your fave tee, in a chunky knit that keeps you toasty as an autumn bonfire.


Classic Cardigans

For all those on-the-go moments when you need an extra layer, keep a cardigan sweater handy. Cardigans – in styles like button front, open front, oversized, and cropped – are MADE for layering over other women’s tops already in your closet, including those tanks and tees you’ve been wearing all summer long. For the ultimate fall vibe, wear an open front cardigan over a graphic tee with high-waisted jeans, or pair a long cardigan with an oversized t-shirt and leggings for a look that takes you from the library to a weekend hayride.


Fleece Fever

Fleece sweatshirts and hoodies keep you ready for everything this season has to offer. Hitting up a haunted house? Wear fleece. Going to a fall festival? Fleece is the answer. Fleece is the answer. Taking a hike to take in the changing leaves? You guessed it: a soft fleece pullover will keep you comfy.

AE Sweatshirts

With fits including slouchy and cropped, you can style your fleece up or down. Wear an oversized sweatshirt with high-waisted jeans to keep the relaxed vibes going, or pair a fleece pullover with overalls for a throwback-inspired look.

The Best Jeans to Wear with Fall Footwear

One of the best parts about transitioning to your fall wardrobe? The shoes! Retire your flip flops and sandals to the back of the closet until next spring, and swap them out for cooler-weather classics like boots and sneakers to wear with your fave American Eagle jeans.

Wondering which jeans go best with your new fall footwear? No worries. We’ve got you covered with this jean + shoe guide.



For Guys: What to Wear with Slim, Skinny & Stacked Jeans

Slim Jeans + Chunky Sneakers

Lean and clean but not quite skinny, slim jeans are juuuuust right for chunkier shoes that balance them out, like sneaker boots or sporty sneakers with a bigger, chunky outsole.

Skinny Jeans + Sleek Sneakers

Our best-selling skinny jeans – not tight, just right! – serve up serious style with minimally styled sneakers featuring a sleeker profile. Choose ripped skinny jeans for an elevated rugged look, or go for a medium wash for that iconic blue jeans style.

Stacked Skinny Jeans + Bright Sneakers

Stacked skinny jeans use a trend-forward stacked effect at the ankle to draw attention to your shoes, a.k.a. they’re amazing at showing off sneakers made to pop. Match your stacked jeans with brightly colored shoes to stand out from the crowd.

For Girls: What to Wear with Ripped, High-Waisted & Curvy Jeans

 Ripped Jeans + Your Fave Boots

Ripped jeans like jeggings and Tomgirl jeans might feel like summer styles – but wear them with black booties or plaid sneakers and they’re ready for falling leaves, sweater weather, and cooler temps. Emphasize your shoes by cuffing your jeans or choosing a cropped length.

High-Waisted Jeans + Statement Heels

High-waisted jeggings and highest waist flare jeans give you that comfy high-rise fit you love, and serve up major style with of-the-moment snakeskin heels. Try them with other patterned shoes in prints like leopard, houndstooth, and plaid to make a statement all season long.

Curvy Jeans + Fall-Forward Footwear

Still searching for jeans to wear with your fall shoes? Give Curvy jeans a try! Designed with more room through the hips and thighs, these jeans eliminate waistband gapping and hug all your curves. Try Curvy jeans with a split hem to draw focus down to your classic Chelsea booties. These boots are made for walking, and the jeans are made for making your butt look (and feel) incredible.
