My little brother wears American Eagle, so every Christmas I brave the throngs of teenage girls and popped collar post-grads to find him a decent button-down or two. But yesterday I decided to venture into AE in search of something I'd be willing and able (I've been out of college for some time) to wear. Here's what I found:
Fall outerwear. American Eagle has some surprisingly stylish and classic jackets and vests perfect for these transitional months. This yellow peacoat ($119.50) is very J. Crew-esque, and a refreshing break from standard navy.
This chocolate puffer vest ($59.50) is the perfect piece to throw on for weekend errands or a casual autumn barbecue. Plus it's lined with soft jersey, so it feels like a t-shirt on the inside.
And for the office, a simple, crisp navy blazer ($69.50) will work with either a slimming pencil skirt or pair of wide-leg jeans.
Check out the other great finds we dug out in cheesy stores around town.
