For those extra-chilly days, try the AE Puffer Coat ($119.50). It features a faux fur-lined hood and durable nylon that can stand up to wind and snow.
Leather is great for handbags, but not so great when it rains or snows. Luckily, the AE Mini Messenger Bag ($24.50) has the look of leather without actually being leather, and is much cheaper. It comes in 5 colors, and since it's so inexpensive, you may be able to treat yourself to more than one!
I really love the boots that American Eagle is offering this year, especially the AE Button Warm & Fuzzy Boots ($39.50). The chestnut color is my fave, but it also comes in khaki, rich chocolate and olive so it'll easily match your wardrobe. They pair well with tights and a mini or a pair of skinnies or even cropped boyfriend pants.
Hoodies are great for days when you don't have much time to get ready or you just want a more simple look. The AE Shawl Collar Graphic Hoodie ($24.95) has really cute graphics, comes in 6 colors and looks great over jeans.
Flannel shirts are a winter update to the classic oxford shirt and usually come in bright plaid patterns. The AE Lightweight Plaid Flannel Shirt ($39.50) is thick enough so you stay warm but thin enough that you can layer it over a tank or tee.
The AE Polar Fleece Jacket ($34.95) does double-duty as a zip-up hoodie and a lightweight jacket. A choice of 8 colors means you'll easily be able to find one you love.
Looking for a looser-fitting casual sweater? You've come to the right place--try the AE Light & Lofty Dolman Sweater ($39.95) for a hand-knit look that's very unique.
