How To Style The Tomgirl Jean With Vanilla Extract

At AEO, we’re all about celebrating new denim in 2016. From fits to washes, we’ve incorporated new design into America’s #1 brand of jeans. To help us celebrate, blogger Nichole Ciotti from Vanilla Extract styled some of our favorite fits in a three part blogger series. Today’s style is all about the Tomgirl jean. Get to know Nichole and the inspiration behind denim look number 1 below.

Meet Nichole: Nichole Ciotti is a 20-something year old entrepreneur living in the San Francisco Bay Area. When she’s not traveling or exploring the Bay Area, you’ll find her working on a new social media app with her boyfriend, Brian. The two both share a passion for photography and love spending their weekends shooting in undiscovered places. Nichole’s style can best be described as “simple, but dynamic,” which she shares on Instagram and her blog, Vanilla Extract.

What Inspired Nichole’s Look: “This year, I’m experimenting with lighter denim washes and comfortable fits. I can’t get enough of these distressed Tomgirl jeans because they strike the perfect balance between a skinny jean and true boyfriend jeans. The fit makes me feel feminine while still exuding a relaxed look that is perfect for a fun day with friends. This lighter wash inspired me to create a winter white look complete with a chunky off-white turtleneck and nude pumps. The pumps elevate the look from day to night giving us all a reason to take those Tomgirl jeans out to dinner for date night.”

How To Style The Bell Sleeve Dress With Officially Quigley

The winter months can be beautiful but sometimes the shorter days and colder weather make us crave a little Spring. One product that’s budding with color is our Bell Sleeve dress.

What Inspired Quigley’s Look: “I styled this dress with a faux fur vest to give it that extra ‘cozy’ factor. I love wearing faux fur around the holidays because it just makes everything more festive! I also paired the look with a super dark purple lip and a large brimmed matching hat. Voila! A holiday look, for a night full of lights, carols and sleigh bells!”

How to Style The Soft Babydoll Dress With Little J Style

This holiday season, slip into a must-have staple. Our Babydoll Dress is the softest dress in our favorite silhouette. It’s fit to flatter and can be taken from season to season just by switching up your accessories and shoes. Jackie from Little J Style created a boho-inspired look by pairing flared jeans under her dress. Get to know Jackie and the inspiration behind her #AEOSTYLE below.

AE Babydoll Tunic (Mila) 12-13-15_7

Meet Jackie: Jackie currently resides in Sandy, Utah where she lives with her husband and her two cats, Precious and Kittykins.  She always loved fashion, trends, and styling. Blogging seemed like a great way to document her own personal style, share hair and beauty tips, and help girls like her answer that age old question, “What should I wear?” She also likes to blog about her travels and occasional recipes!

AE Babydoll Tunic (Mila) 12-13-15_9

What Inspired Jackie’s Look: “Tunic, dress, shirt- whatever you want to call this AEO top, I love it! I’m quite tall so I wanted to wear it with my favorite flair jeans. The flared out babydoll shape complements the flare of the jeans. My photographer who is more petite said she could probably definitely wear it as a dress! I love that it’s so versatile. Also, the fabric feels like suede somehow…I don’t even know how they do it but it’s amazingly soft. I’m also wearing it with leggings and booties this winter!”

How To Style The Corduroy Button Skirt With Jo And Kemp

Corduroy is a staple fabric when it comes to winter months. Instead of incorporating this trend into typical jackets and pants, we’ve taken it one step further and created a super chic button front skirt. Kemper from Jo & Kemp incorporated this winter essential into her every day #AEOSTYLE while channeling a spark of 90’s trend. Get to know Kemper and the inspiration behind her look below.

_MG_1840 copySNOW

Meet Kemper: I am so grateful to introduce myself to all you beautiful people! My name is Kemper, and my husband (Jordan) and I created a life and style blog about five months ago. Jordan is the photographer, and occasionally we will style as a duo. I have always had an undeniable love for fashion. Jo has the creative eye. We love doing everything together, so blogging ended up being perfect for us. We love just going out and capturing our moments together. Prior to blogging, I worked as Stylist Assistant for the A&E TV series Duck Dynasty. My love for fashion only continues to grow, and we love sharing our life and style adventures with our followers!

_MG_1902 copySNOW

 

What Inspired Kemper’s Look:Corduroy mini skirts are making a comeback & I am not mad about it. Anything that takes me back to the 90’s, takes me back to N’Sync and Boy Meets World, and that’s always a good thing! There are so many different ways to style this skirt, but I went with a more of slouchy-comfortable look.

The weather in Louisiana can tend to be a bit crazy (80 degrees one day & 30 the next). It is not rare to wear shorts on Christmas day. The great thing about this skirt is it can be styled for cool or warm conditions. Let’s be honest, an oversized sweater will work with almost anything & I loved it with this skirt to give it a more cozy feel. I would also pair it with tights, booties, & a scarf depending on my mood!

Go check out the other earthy colors of this skirt, and buy yourself one… you deserve it! ;)”
