Jenmarie G., a former AE store associate from California, is a stylist and author of the fashion blog Style Through Her Eyes. We asked Jenmarie to style printed and colored jeans three different ways to show how to wear Fall’s hottest trend.
When these Printed Ankle Jeggings arrived in store, I knew they had to come home with me! I love the classiness of polka dots and I feel that American Eagle gave these a great modern touch by making them purple. Such a fun color, right? Wearing a neutral colored top with patterned or colored denim always works. My choice is usually black and if it’s an asymmetrical piece, I’m one happy lady! A few simple accessories, including layered silver necklaces and a faux leather bag completed this look. For some, this outfit might be a bit dressed up, but for me, it’s an everyday sort of ensemble.
Did you know that much of what you wear with your favorite regular jeans can be worn with printed jeans too? I layered a boyfriend tank, open-knit cardigan, and denim jacket with these unique animal print jeggings. I see myself going shopping with a friend or to a movie with my husband in this outfit. It works for many occasions and really is so simple to achieve. Remember, layering gives a more polished appearance!
Perhaps when on the shelves you can’t imagine these AE Aqua Skinny Jeans and AE Hooded Striped Poncho being paired together. That’s why, as a fashion blogger and stylist, I always urge people to try different pieces on before they make their decision on whether they like it or not. Something new and unknown could become your new favorite thing and you never know what you may come up with after mixing and matching. I loved how comfortable this outfit was! I topped it off with an over-sized bow, boots and red lips. Definitely a great fall look!
