American Eagle Outfitters Holiday 2010 Sneak Peek
American Eagle Outfitters, the retailer for the young and hip, is quickly earning a place in my heart so much I am even tempted to shop there (GASPS) – as their latest collections have really impressed me; the spring/summer collection surprisingly contained some practical pieces that I coveted. The Holiday collection, which I recently checked out, included some selections and exceeded my expectations.
The Holiday 2010 preview was held at AE headquarters in a room decorated to resemble a winter Oasis with caterers dressed as lumberjacks. These lumberjacks handed out Holiday treats like candy and hot (cold) chocolate, as I made my shopping list – uhm “previewed” the collection. While, the collection is decidedly youthful, there are some pieces for the more developed fashion lover.
Some standout pieces — AE Fur Chubby Jacket ($99) a super soft chic jacket that hits at the waist – perfect for pairing with jeans/jeggings; there’s the AE Sequin Skirt (black – $34.50) – anything metallic is a must have (for the Fall) and this an economical yet stylish statement piece for the trend conscious shopper; I love the AE Brocade Dress ($59.50) available in purple and green – this inexpensive frock is perfect to celebrate the holiday, and a great dress for layering loving fashionistas. AERIE expanded their sweat pants selection and I want the Aerie Straight Leg Fleece Pant ($34.50). FYI – The AERIE sweatpants are the most comfortable pants ever. Seriously!
Not to be outdone the Aerie & AE Kids collection is soooooooo cute. The frilly dresses, the holiday theme wears, are all perfect for your equally cute young love one. I especially love the cashmere onesise – seriously do they make it my size? Not even kidding.
While you will have to wait to November get your hands on these frocks, you don’t have to wait preview the collection because we have sneak peek images.
