How To Style The Vintage Hi-Rise Jean with How Do You Wear That?

If the bomber is the jacket of the season, the denim on the season is definitely the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean. Boyfriend fit denim is having a major moment right now, and we’re taking full advantage of the trend. Blogger Cait Warakomski from How Do You Wear That? styled the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean perfectly suited for a laid-back weekend or brunch. Check out Cait’s full look below & discover what she loves about the Vintage Hi-Rise Jean.

Meet Cait:
“Caitlyn grew up in a small town in NJ halfway between Philly and NYC (1 hour from each) and 30 minutes from the beach, a pretty ideal spot. She has always loved fashion, but more so style.  Growing up, she would always go to thrift stores on the weekends with her mom. She’d find these really cool pieces in vibrant boho fabrics and while a particular piece might not even fit her, she would still get it anyway because she envisioned how she could ‘make it work.’

That’s when she realized she really enjoyed styling things and putting together different outfits. So, that’s why she always says she likes style more, rather than fashion. Some people may think those two words are interchangeable, but not to her. Caitlyn really likes styling anything – whether it be an outfit, a space, event, website, etc. In June 2015, Caitlyn decided to bite the bullet and launch her blog & Instagram How Do You Wear That. She finally has discovered something that encompasses everything she genuinely loves to do in one cohesive element.”

What Inspired Cait’s Look:
“Personally, I am a sucker for boyfriend jeans. I love them. You can wear them with sneakers and look cool or you can dress them up with a heel and look sophisticated. I really feel like you could never go wrong! Anyone else feel me on that?).

Jeans are always really hard for me to shop for because of the fit. Most people don’t believe me, but when I am asked where I shop for my jeans or what my go-to jean brand is, I say American Eagle. Their Vintage Hi-Rise is true to size, flexible and comfy just like their high-rise skinnies. I feel like they just hug you in the right places and after so many washes, they hold their own.

I went the causal route and paired my Vintage Hi-Rise Denim with a graphic tee, simple white sneakers and a leather jacket (who doesn’t love a leather jacket – you could seriously wear it with a ball gown and look good…) I always think – when in doubt, go with denim and or a leather jacket. What are your go-to items?”

Seasonally Inspired #AEOSTYLE: First Day Of Fall Outfit

It’s safe to say that Fall has become one of the most anticipated seasons of the year… and we don’t hate it. Aside from all the hype about pumpkin spice and changing leaves, Fall is a great season to push pause and refresh. It’s a season of change and a time to appreciate everything you have and can do. We’re ready for autumn, and we have the #AEOSTYLE to prove it. Check out our must-do’s for the season and, of course, what we’ll be wearing when Fall arrives on September 22.

WHAT  TO DO THIS SEASON

  • GET OUTSIDE: Make the most of mild temps and go for a hike to check out the Fall foliage.
  • TRY SOMETHING NEW: A food, an activity – anything! There’s never a bad time to take a chance.
  • REVAMP YOUR #AEOSTYLE: Clear out your closet and update your Fall look (hint: our looks below might help!).
  • SET SOME GOALS: Consciously choose to make a positive change this season.

WHAT TO WEAR ON THE FIRST DAY OF FALL

GUYS: Keep your look for the first day of Fall as chill as the weather. Layering is key this season, so mix colors, textures and styles for a cool, casual look. We took muted tones of green and orange and paired them back to one of our favorite colors this Fall, grey. Ground your look with neutrals in your denim & shoes – leather hi-top sneakers are durable and on-trend, perfect for an active outdoor season.

Welcome Autumn with First Day Of Fall #AEOSTYLE

SHOP IT: Military Jacket | Full Zip Hoodie | Find Your Wild Graphic Tee
Extreme Flex Slim Jean | Leather Hi-Top Sneaker | Classic Sunglasses

GIRLS: Laid-back #AEOSTYLE is the goal here, and you can achieve the look with simple layers inspired by the colors of the season. We love the bold color of a red tank, and the floral embroidery in the jacket we paired it with brings some life to this edgy look. Our outerwear of choice for Fall 2016 – the bomber jacket – is on top. Destructed hi-rise jeggings and hi-top shoes finish the outfit.

How To Style The Zip-Up Studded Skirt With Style Lullaby

Nights are getting cooler, but #AEOSTYLE is heating up. We’re feeling the 90s revival that’s happening all throughout fashion right now, and it’s been fun injecting hints of the trend into our everyday look (think lace blouses, chokers, studs & more). One of the main players in the 90s trend is the miniskirt, and we’re so excited to be able to make the most of this classic closet piece again! This season, our miniskirts range from dark denim to cozy corduroy to soft faux-suede & have surprise details like scalloped edges and studs. Blogger Sharon Wu from Style Lullaby styled the Zip-Up Studded Skirt, which is perfect for a night out or weekends roaming. Keep reading to see Sharon’s full look & discover the inspiration behind her outfit.

This black studded faux-suede skirt is perfect for everyday wear this season. It exudes the right amount of edge and cool, while providing lasting comfort. Worn with a simple white blouse and block sandals with metal-detailing, this skirt is sure to turn heads both in and out of the classroom.”
