Yesterday I went to the American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and Aerie press previews, displaying the fall 2014 merch that will hit stores late this summer into the early fall. From AEO, expect a continuation on the summer festival motif, found this time around in darker colors and rife with layering options for when the weather turns chilly. Cotton patterned pants continue to be a huge trend into fall 2014, coupled with embroidered or raglan sleeve embellished tops. There certainly is a strong element of grunge surfacing, coupled with Dr. Martens in a variety of hues that AEO will be carrying in the fall.
Popular prints such as camouflage and leopard also make their way into the lineup, with a GREAT array of shoes, both from AEO and brands such as New Balance that are carried. Also be on the lookout for some classic, staple sporty pieces, such as varsity sweaters and baseball jackets, coupled with super slouchy beanies. The brand also does one or two stellar leather jackets per season, and this back-to-school fall 2014 collection is no exception.
From Aerie, the intimates collection becomes even more robust with the Bridget, Blakely & new Charley Plunge Bra, accompanied by some cute bobby socks, thigh-skimming boxers, pajama pants, and super soft sweats. Perfect for lounging, and of course, sleeping in too! See the slide show above for my top picks from AEO and Aerie for fall 2014!
