#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Hi-Rise Jegging

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

Christina from Oh So Glam took on our Hi-Rise Jegging. We took our sexiest, skinniest fit to the next level with a higher rise waist. It looks like a jean and feels like a legging.

What inspired Christina’s look:
The distressed denim trend is one of my all-time favorite trends, but I love that these jeggings are fitted. It brings a chicness to the outfit.  I paired them with this everyday henley and my new favorite trend, the plaid shirt tied around the waist… 90’s grunge at its finest!

No matter what your style personality is, we’ve got the color and pattern that works best with your getup. Check out some of our favorite prints and patterns below and get a leg up on your #AEOStyle.

Shop the look:
Floral Legging
Vivid Printed Legging
Side Zip Legging
Faux Leather Tuxedo Stripe Legging
Floral Printed Legging
Printed Legging

Style Tips:
If you prefer a Solid, Faux Leather Tuxedo Stripe or Size Zip Leggings: Pair them back to a Button Down or an Open Stitched Jegging Sweater for edgy style that’s not only comfortable, its cool.

If you prefer Floral or Vivid Leggings: Don’t overdo it with pattern. Keep your top solid to draw the eyes towards you rather than away. We suggest a classic Real Soft Favorite V-Neck T-Shirt and a cardigan.

Remember:
One of the best things about leggings is that they’re the perfect transition piece. No matter what season you’re in, you can rock them all year long.

Meet the AEO PR TEAM

Hello from the AEO PR team! We’re so excited to bring you an inside look at the AEO Public Relations office in New York City. We’re responsible for giving fashion editors, celebrities and bloggers all the latest news about AEO and Aerie. I’m Syma, and I’ll be keeping you updated on what’s new with the PR team and what we love at the moment. But first, we wanted to introduce ourselves! Keep reading to find out a little more about each of the members of the AEO PR team, how we describe our #AEOSTYLE and more.

AEO PR TEAM

The AEO PR TEAM (L to R): Syma, Laurie, Colleen and Rachel }

Rachel:
I’ve been in the fashion biz for 25 years… and at AEO for almost 9! I have so many favorite parts of my job, starting with how much I love working with my AEO Team. They’re my second family and I often call them the “A” team. I am so happy and proud of the work we produce and the results we deliver. Seeing our products appear everywhere, from magazines and TV to celebrities and bloggers wearing them, is just so exciting. This business is so fast paced and ever changing—I truly don’t think I’ve ever had the same day twice! I love developing new relationships and encountering such talented and inspirational people daily. I’ve made so many great friends over the years! I love working for AEO because it reaches so many people… and I love seeing everyone wearing our jeans.

What is your #AEOStyle?
I personally am a denim girl at heart, and I believe living in AEO Jeans is the best way to live your life. Plus, I get to wear jeans to work every day. I love my Super Skinny, destroyed and Boy Crop jeans in white the most.

Laurie:
I’ve been with AEO for 8 and a half years. WOW, that’s sounds really long! I love working with the editors and forming new relationships, I love seeing the results of my work appear on the pages of magazines, and most of all, I love working with everyone on the AEO PR team.

What is your #AEOStyle?
I’m a denim girl for sure. I love my AEO black jeggings and boyfriend jeans. In the summer I live in my denim shorties. I love dainty details but I’m a tomboy at heart.

Colleen:
I’ve been at AEO for almost 6 years. My favorite part of my job is working with this crazy crew! I came to AEO from my family’s small business, so joining the team here was awesome—they’ve become my work family. The environment here breeds creativity. It’s exciting being part of expanding AEO’s exposure to the world, from magazines and cool online sites to bloggers. No day is the same. It’s always a challenge, with a lot of laughter and hard work.

What is your #AEOStyle?
I live in the Boy Jean in white—our best one yet!

Syma:
During my junior year in college, I interned in merchandising at AEO’s Pittsburgh headquarters. After I graduated and had a variety of internships, I took a chance on NYC and haven’t looked back since! I’ve been living my life in AEO Jeans for as long as I can remember and I love the energy of the brand. It’s pretty awesome to wear my favorite pair of destroyed jeggings to work. Our team is super fun and we work so closely—they’ve become my family in the city! I have always been obsessed with fashion and being a part of the PR team is a great mix of my interests.

What is your #AEOStyle?
The Hi-Rise Jegging and an easy, breezy tee, preferably in grey.
