Sneak Peek: American Eagle Holiday 2011
This morning we headed to the American Eagle Outfitters showroom to preview their upcoming Holiday collection. As usual we were charmed by the youthful assortment of winter wares and the slew of absolutely delight pieces.
This collection however, unlike seasons past (at least to us), seems more rugged, edgier and decidedly less frilly but it still has the classic youthful charm so central to AEO. Look for loads of plaid pairings, puffier down jacket with faux fur trimmings, stripe knits, college style sweaters with asymmetrical inspired prints, and of course there’s still the cool selection of jeans. The dresses are as always pretty, tasteful and absolutely refined. Look for spaghetti straps accents with tulle accents, tank dresses with appliqué and or lacy details.
Also, with this collection AEO is carefully pushing their accessories and with good reason – the pieces are so affordable and yet so elegant. It should come as no surprise we have some favorites – we love the AE Roxy Pouch $19.50, AE Helen Bag ($39.50) and the AE sparkle Julia Sneaker ($24.50).
This collection is slated to arrive in stores beginning in late October/early November.
