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.

AE Tie Dye Top

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.

Fall Favorites up Top

The best time to wear a striped sweater? All the time. Whether you’re heading to the beach, mountains, or anywhere in between, a lightweight striped sweater or sweatshirt will keep you cozy on those chilly, end-of-summer evenings. Another LDW must? An extra layer, like a super-soft hoodie, fall-ready flannel, or a half-zip sweatshirt.

AE Fall Favorites

All About Prints & Graphics

Pack long weekend basics in the hottest fall prints like plaid, stripes, and unexpected leopard for her. They’re bold and bright, and look pop with accessories like bucket hats and sneakers.

For guys, go for graphic tees made from the softest fabrics—they’re just right for layering on those early morning hikes or nights by the bonfire. For laid-back, between-seasons style, try a long sleeve t-shirt or throw on a hoodie, and you’re set.

New Must-Haves on the Bottom

Traveling is all about packing items you can really mix and match. These streetwear-inspired, color-blocked nylon joggers are the exactly that. They’re made with lightweight nylon that’s just right for those in-between season days, and the classic jogger fit goes with basically anything. Pop a hoodie, throw on a baseball hat, and you’re good to go.

Girls, don’t sleep on the leopard print trend. It’s here to stay and we are here for it. Wear your leopard print jeggings with a solid colored sweater to tame down the look, or go wild by mixing animal prints up top, too. Round out the ‘fit with comfortable sneakers made for exploring wherever your Labor Day weekend takes you.

Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans don’t have to be a “summer only” look. Wear them all the way into fall by mixing them with cooler-weather favorites like sweatshirts, pullover sweaters, and flannel shirts. And if you’re worried about a school dress code once the long weekend ends, choose patched jeans that keep you covered up.

AE Accessories

On-the-Go Accessories

What’s a weekend away without accessories? Stash all your vacay stuff in a roomy backpack that transitions perfectly to the classroom, and bring along a classic black belt that ties together all your Labor Day outfits.

Don’t Skirt the Issue

Kick off the school year your way by adding new skirts and denim jackets to your closet options.

Separately, skirts and jackets can add a fresh take to your typical jeans and a t-shirt vibe, but together they create an outfit allllllmost too good to be true. Just add a top for layering, your favorite accessories, and a fresh pair of sneakers and you’re good to go.

Denim on Denim

What’s better than one denim piece in your ‘fit? How about two? Wear a denim skirt with a denim jacket to double dip in this iconic material. Create a timeless, laid-back look by starting with a long sleeve cropped t-shirt, then layer on a distressed mini skirt and a classic medium-wash denim jacket. Throw on athletic sneakers and a baseball cap and you’re set for whatever the day brings.

Striped with Love

Midi skirts hit somewhere between a shorter mini skirt and a longer maxi skirt for that free, flowy feeling and just the right amount of between-seasons coverage. Pair a printed midi with a solid-colored top or fitted graphic tee, then complete the look with a wear-everyday denim jacket, chunky sneakers, and delicate hoop earrings. Wear your jacket buttoned up on chilly mornings, or try tying it around your waist for a cool throwback style.

Double the Patterns, Double the Fun

Who says you can’t wear more than one pattern? When it comes to prints, you can never have too much of a good thing. Wear a striped Henley sweater with a plaid mini skirt, then finish the look with a ‘70s denim jacket , a sneaker made for your on-the-go day, and pearl hair clips that serve major elegance. This outfit is so on point for fall we can almost hear the leaves crunching under your feet.
