How To Style The Slim Straight Flex / 4 360 Jean With Oh Anthonio

For our third and final denim installment with Anthony from Oh Anthonio, we challenged him to style our new Slim Straight Flex / 4 360 jean. Now with even more stretch, these jeans are made to move with you. When not on the slopes, Anthony channeled an Après Ski look by pairing his denim back to warm knits and chunky plaids. Check out Anthony’s #AEOSTYLE below.

What Inspired Anthony’s Look: Somewhere between the chairlift and the fireplace is Après Ski and just because you’re not in Aspen doesn’t mean you can’t flex your slope-side style. Starting with a solid foundation of classic blue denim, I layered cozy knits and plaids for a wintry ski lodge feel. It’s all about casual warmth and comfort so I stuck with pieces that are easy to slip into after a long day on the slopes. I skipped the beanie in favor of a more trendy fedora to add a touch of personality to my look.

How To Style The Slim Core Flex Jean With Oh Anthonio

For our second denim installment with Oh Anthonio, we challenged him to style a lighter wash to add a pop of brightness to his winter wardrobe. Our Slim Core Flex jean looks exactly like your favorite AEO denim, but now with just enough stretch for increased comfort & flexibility. Check out how Anthony added a spin to a typical tailored look by adding distressed and oversized elements to his #AEOSTYLE.

american eagle flex jeans 2-1What Inspired Anthony’s Look:When it comes to my personal style one of the things I love to do is blend casual and dressy and break down tailored pieces.  Instead of your classic lightwash jeans, why not wear a pair that’s distressed?  Instead of a typical tailored topcoat, why not go for one that’s oversized? I love juxtaposing styles like this and little details like frayed hems, double zippers, and distressed washes have a really cool, edgy feel.”

As Seen In #AEOSTYLE: Keep It Casual

Casual, cool #AEOSTYLE: it’s one of our favorite things. This week, we spotted #AEOSTYLE in two of our favorite publications – O, the Oprah Magazine and Seventeen. We felt super chill vibes from everything we saw, from a marled cable beanie to a trendy tie dye sweater, so in this week’s edition of As Seen In, we’re keeping it casual. Don’t want to get fancy with your #AEOSTYLE? No problem. Layer up in your favorite sweaters, tees and jackets, accessorize with simple hats, and head out the door.

As Seen In #AEOSTYLE

Tie dye is huge this season and into summer, so we’re getting an early start on the trend with our Tie Dye Pullover Sweater. In a crisp indigo wash, this sweater will pair perfectly with your favorite AEO Denim, like our brand new Jegging Ankle or the fan-favorite Tomgirl Jean.

We love a good leather jacket, especially one with a cool fur trim. Since the jacket Seventeen showcased is from our Holiday Collection, you can shop a similar style in our black AEO Denim Jacket from Spring. Let’s be honest: dark denim is equally as cool as leather. Our Soft & Sexy Tomgirl T-Shirt would be the perfect first layer under the denim jacket. With lots of color options and the softest fabric ever, this shirt is casual without sacrificing any quality. Top it all off with a fun hat (a knit beanie is season-appropriate!).

Real Talk With Shivani

It’s all about positive vibes with Shivani. Read on & learn more about one of the newest faces of #AerieREAL!
Image3

What makes you #AerieREAL?
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to embrace my flaws and love myself for what makes me different. For example, I have scoliosis, which is a spinal condition that a lot of girls have that basically just means that my spine isn’t straight. I used to really hate it, but I’ve learned to really love it because it makes me different.

Lover or fighter?

I think you have to be a little bit of both in order to succeed in this life.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Romantic comedies.

What are you currently listening to?

I’ve been listening to a lot of Childish Gambino lately.

SP1Images_28

Favorite thing about spring?

My favorite thing about spring is in the morning, when you wake up and the air is really, really fresh.

What makes you really laugh?

Shows like The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, John Oliver, John Stewart. I really like political satire and I think it’s very important to laugh at yourself.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I would really love to go to Thailand, Indonesia, that sort of area that’s beautiful but also very spiritual.

SP1Images_29How did you feel when you found out you wouldn’t be retouched?

Initially the idea of no retouching was very foreign to me and made me feel very insecure. But my second thought was: finally! Finally somebody is saying that we shouldn’t be changing women’s bodies with Photoshop. We should just be taking the image and putting it up because that’s real and that’s what it is.

What body positive message do you want to share with other girls?

Not just a body positivity message but an overall life positivity message: everyone’s journey is different, and instead of competing with and comparing yourself to people, it’s better to figure out how we can all make each other better.

What’s one thing the world needs more of?

The world needs more compassion, in the sense that we all need to realize that we’re all the same. Literally, biologically, we all came from the same place, so

How To Wear The Skinny Core Flex Jean With Oh Anthonio

If one of your 2016 goals was to step up your #AEOSTYLE, you still have time before resolution season is officially over. What better way to start the new year than with new jeans? Take the hint: it’s time to try a jean that’s made to move with you – our Men’s Flex/Denim. We partnered with Anthony from Oh Anthonio for a three-part denim series featuring some of our favorite new Flex fits. For his first look, Anthony styled our Men’s Skinny Core Flex Jean with a chilly, winter white vibe. Get to know Anthony and the inspiration behind his #AEOSTYLE below.

Oh Anthonio/Skinny Core Flex Jean

Meet Anthony: Anthony Urbano is an NJ native turned current New Yorker. With a degree in Civil Engineering from Rutgers University, he has worked as a structural engineer designing buildings in New York City for over six years. Not only an academic mind but a creative creature as well, Anthony’s interest in photography and fashion led him to create a personal style blog that serves as a creative outlet to share his musings on fashion, travel and lifestyle.

Oh Anthonio/Skinny Core Flex Jean

What Inspired Anthony’s Winter White Look: “This past summer, the all-white ‘painter’ look was a big trend that I was definitely a fan of, so for this outfit I wanted to do my version of that trend for winter. Personally, I love to wear white all year round, and although white denim might not feel intuitively wintry, it definitely works if you wear it right. I layered shades of white and off-white in different textures to add visual interest to this monochromatic outfit. The end result is a minimal but sophisticated winter outfit.”
