Hot on the heels of opening its biggest location yet in Times Square, this mall staple is upping the ante once again by opening another megastore—now its second-largest space—in Downtown Brooklyn. The two-story shop isn’t much different from other Aéropostales around the country, but there are some pieces made especially for the New York metro area that have a more grown-up edge. Look for Fair isle vests ($70), sheer floral tops ($40) and men’s military jackets ($80) that are certainly an upgrade from the graphic tees that you may remember from your middle school shopping days.
