American Eagle Summer 2012 Collection

For Summer 2012, American Eagle continues to bring bold colors, soft feminine styles and lively patterns. The American Eagle Summer 2012 Collection features fun and flirty looks that capture the exciting and carefree days of summer. Expect to see lots of girly styles, silhouettes and fabrics, light layering, mixing of prints and colors – not a surprise since this summer’s collection is inspired by the theme “live loud” and the Coachella Music Festival.

Crocheted and lace dresses were belted, shorts were paired with wide knit tops, thin spaghetti strap crop tops and crocheted tops; Rompers were seen in floral prints, summer scarves in various prints, colors and lengths were paired with dresses, shorts, etc, lacy tank tops in bright colors, floppy wide brimmed hats were paired with just about everything (a must have sun-shielding accessory for women at Coachella); relaxed silhouettes, fun looks and playful colors are the essences of this collection and I’m sure we will see many pieces from this collection throughout the summer. One of my favorite looks from the collection wasn’t a piece, it was the fact that the fun graphic prints were seen in shorts, tops and accessories.

American Eagle Spring 2012 Collection

For Spring 2012, American Eagle welcomes a happy mix of prints (bold florals, pretty paisley and tribal), stripes, mixed textures, striking color, bold accessories and swimsuits. The American Eagle Spring 2012 Collection is a wonderful mix of Farmgirl innocence and California cool and in typical American Eagle manner, also allows consumers to mix and match as well as layer the pieces.

Several looks/pieces in the AE Spring 2012 stood out to me, including the peekaboo shirt with the lace insert, the adorable colorful ikat skirt, the color-blocked striped tee and the modern lace tee

Accessories were both full of personality, colorful – mixing both the flair and subtle beauty of the 70’s – feather jewelry and fringe bags; pops of color added to bags by hanging decorations or stitching, beaded jewelry and ornate sandals.

American Eagle 2011 Holiday Collection

American Eagle showcased some adorably sweet dresses to get your holiday festivities and gifting started on the right path. Pump up your holiday parties in a sweet bold purple cocktail dress with embellished bodice, a chic black pleated cocktail dress, a darling ballerina-inspired tulle dress or go with a textured print

All which will charm the hearts of any young woman who is a fan of American Eagle’s products. The undeniably youthful collection continues to be interchangeable as cocktail dresses are layered under cozy sweaters and cardigans, sleek blazers and fun furry winter hats and vests.

This collection also features American Eagle staples – jeans, sweaters, accessories, bags, et al in ultra bold color mixes – bold red and blue plaids, brightly colored florals against solid muted backgrounds, pink jeans, richly colored navajo prints.

We also got to preview American Eagle’s three new fragrances – Bohemian (citrus, garden herbs, wildflowers and jasmine are among the crisp, feminine notes), Crush (as it name implies, it’s romantic, flirty, youthful and fresh) and Live (girly, clean and Fresh are some of the words to describe this mischievous fragrance). I found myself more partial to the spicy sweetness of the Live fragrance

American Eagle Fall 2011 Preview

American Eagle charms us for Fall 2011 with its usual casual comfort in an array of prints, bold colors, mixing of textures, layering and a few surprise pieces. The brand continues to make their pieces possible to mix and match which makes American Eagle a go to brand. Featuring more than just their super comfy T-shirts, denim, totally live-in sweatshirts, American Eagle wowed with several must haves.

American Eagle has definitely grown up, I am loving this sleek tapered Navy Blazer with the black piping and this surprising chic belted trench with the faux fur collar – both classic looks that are quite sophisticated and should be staples in your closet.

Back to American Eagle’s well-known comfort, I could live in the cardigan featured below – A perfect layering piece, I mean eat, sleep, whatever….it just looks so inviting, it makes me feel very much at home with a mug of cocoa.

My other star piece is this muted grey motocycle-esque suede vest with a detachable faux-shearling collar. Super soft to the touch, this vest is another must have layering piece to help transition to the colder NYC months.

American Eagle is definitely moving in the right direction, they should expect to see several more consumers walking through their doors and perusing their racks for these great pieces. I already have my list ready. Do you? Enjoy a few more looks below

The Search for Sun & Surf – American Eagle Spring/Summer 2011 Collection

“The Search for Sea, Sun & Surf” is something I stole from American Eagle but I think after what seems like a year of winter, we’ll all searching for sun and surf (by the way, this saying is on a Navy Canvas bag from AE’s summer collection). Funny enough, one of the numerous snow storm we had was going on while I attended this preview – needless to say I didn’t want to leave. American Eagle created such an amazing atmosphere, I really did believe I was on a beach in sunny California waiting for a gnarly wave to roll in.

I imagined myself wearing one of the adorable summer dresses (either alone or over a bikini) as I take American Eagle’s advice and “take the new path” (which was showcased in big bold letters), particularly to a warmer place than New York. One great trend that appears throughout the collection was the multi-cultural aspect –

Several separates also caught my attention as well, pieces that looked so comfortable and inviting whether wearing them alone while relaxing at home or just hanging out. Some of my faves were the Drapey high-Waist Shorts, the cute Tiered Vest, the Satiny Drawstring Tank and Full Paisley Skirt.

The colorful accessories were of course a hit with me – the gorgeous navy/tan wide brimmed beach hat, the Aztec inspired cuffs, the chic nautical flats and the various bags.


An although our days are getting a touch warmer, this blogger is anxiously awaiting the times when the “Search for Sea, Sun & Surf” is over and we basking in the glory of warm weather.
