Styled By You: Plaids, Sweaters & Puffers!

Winter gets a bad rap sometimes. Sure, it can be chilly and yeah, snow is the worst, but it also brings layering season and fresh fits. Winter’s almost over (thankfully), but we wanted to look back on some of your favorite winter outfits so far!

These pics were submitted by YOU as part of the #AExME campaign where we feature real people who take what we make and make it their own. Want to show off your winter outfits or be included in the next wrap up?

Mad for Plaid

You realllllly couldn’t get enough of plaid this winter, and for good reason! Wearing plaid during fall and winter adds a pop of color to your outfit during a time of year that’s typically a little drab and neutral.

@highlight_her wore a plaid jumpsuit and super-soft sweater to add a bold style to her #OOTD, @casscardythrifts served up a warm look with a plaid jacket and light wash jeans, and @goodtomicha

 

Puffer Coat SZN

This is the time of year when layering is SUPER important. Leave the house without enough layers and you’ll be shivering your way to class, work, or wherever you’re headed. This is where puffer coats and jackets come to the rescue.

@janibellrosanna wore her puffer coat in a bold hue with flare jeans to create a standout style, and @_christinasilva paired a leopard-print jacket with black jeans and a headband to keep the cozy levels sky high when temps were low.

 

Sweater Weather = Better Weather

It’s no secret that sweaters (and cardigans!) were made for winter. From comfy oversized sweaters to cozy fitted sweaters, you rocked every kind of style this season!

@_sarahwoolston paired her relaxed sweater with ripped jeans for a laid-back look, and @kassidi_noelle created her sweater weather look with a ribbed crewneck under a jacket. And who says crop tops are only for spring and summer? @janibellrosanna pulled this look together with high-waisted jeans and a cropped sweater.

Ripped & Repaired Vibes

Mix up the denim on denim vibe by wearing a dark wash denim jacket with light wash jeans.

Layer with a soft fleece hoodie and you’ve got a repeat-worthy outfit all season long.

Flannel Faves

Layer a lightweight flannel under a jean jacket for a timelessly cool vibe that keeps you comfortable when temps are warming but you’re still in-between seasons.

The Spring Dress Trend Guide

Look, there’s nothing wrong with living in leggings and oversized fleece all winter. It’s called “cozy season” for a reason – and, honestly, you make cozy look GOOD. But with sunnier days just around the corner, it’s time to break out of hibernation mode and mix up your look with dresses made to rock now and later.

Wear ‘em now with tights, boots, and super-soft layers, and later with sandals, fresh accessories, and a smile that says, “Why yes, I have left my sofa in the last 48 hours.”

From mini to maxi, basic to bold… check out some of our favorite dress trends this season!

How To Make 2020 Your Year

AE New Year

As another holiday season comes to a close, it’s time to start thinking ahead. What does the new year have in store for you, and more importantly, what do you have planned for it?

Forget resolutions that make you feel bad about yourself. This year is all about living your best life! What are the goals you can set that will really inspire and empower you in 2020?

Here are a few helpful steps you can take to help find your way there.

There’s something about putting your dreams down on paper that makes them real. Make time for yourself to list, sketch, and brainstorm what you really want from the year ahead. Give yourself a place to be bold and free, even if it’s just in a notebook for now.

Check in with yourself to figure out what you really need. It could be a heavy dose of chill, some serious focus, a little energy boost, or even just a good night’s sleep. Whatever it is, set yourself up for success by adding the right MOOD CBD-infused wellness into your daily routine. A little lip balm or hand cream can go a long way in helping you feel less stressed.

If there’s one thing universally proven to make you feel good, it’s getting active. That doesn’t have to mean signing up for spin class or hitting the gym – it could just mean being comfy enough to have an impromptu dance party with your bestie, or taking a 10-minute walk at lunch. Whatever “active” means for you, the “right” gear means that if you want to break a sweat, you can do it without sweating your look… or a change of clothes. Shop TACKMA TECH for her & him for gear that keeps up with your daily hustle.
