What Inspired Stephanie’s Look: “Skinny ripped jeans are my favorite! They are a great way to inject edge into an outfit. They’re also extremely versatile and easy to style. I’ve worn this distressed pair with a sweater and sneakers to run a full day of errands and with a leather jacket to dinner with my friends, and the list goes on and on…”

“For this particular look, I added a silver statement necklace with black pumps and aviator sunglasses to further the rock n’ vibe I was going for. A black blazer with an AEO Soft & Sexy swingy tank in tan tied this look together.”

10 for 10: Ten Styles, Ten Ways

January’s forecast: hues of blue! This month is about celebrating the blue year and incorporating denim, chambray and shades of blue into your look. We asked our Styling Manager, Laura, to pick out some of her favorite pieces from our latest collection to create a mini capsule wardrobe that speaks to the indigo trend and takes all the hard work out of putting together your own looks. Not sure what a capsule wardrobe is? We’ll fill you in: basically, a capsule wardrobe is a few key pieces of clothing (think skirt, denim, a few shirts, a sweater, shoes) that you can mix and match to create different outfits. It’s a simple way to streamline your closet and your look but still keep all of the #AEOSTYLE.

Because we’re working with a few similar shades, creating cohesive looks with several pieces in similar color families is easy! Laura chose pieces that could be dressed up or down, especially when paired with the right shoe. We’re using a casual, cool lace up sneaker and a heeled mule as our shoes of choice. Versatile, basic bottoms like our destroyed Denim X Cafe Jegging and a chambray skirt will go with virtually any top, but keep one thing in mind: neutral colors are your BFF here. Tanks make a great first layer or standalone top. Second layers can be anything from button down shirts to sweaters – this is where you can be playful! For some variety, Laura chose to add a our Cutout Shoulder Sweatshirt to use as a top on its own as well.

Check out all ten pieces Laura pulled and keep scrolling to see how we’re building ten looks with ten products!10 Styles, 10 Ways

How To Style The Hi-Rise Jegging With Vanilla Extract

For our second denim installment with Nichole Ciotti from Vanilla Extract, we’re taking every day sexy to a whole new level with our Denim X Cafe Hi-Rise Jegging! This fashion-forward fit looks like a jean but fits like a legging. Check out Nichole’s #AEOSTYLE inspiration below.

Processed with VSCOcam with e5 preset

What Inspired Nichole’s Look: “Skinny jeans are the name of my game, and the denim I always gravitate toward. Because I reach for this style the most, I look for unique washes and tiny details that elevate my simple outfits. Beyond the amazing stretch and legging-like fit, this pair of jeans is made from recycled coffee grounds. Crazy, right? This conversation starter is perfect for all of my everyday looks including ribbed turtlenecks and long vests! A high-heeled bootie always makes me feel more confident, which is important as I walk into a meeting with a big brand.”

10 questions with Parkour Athlete: Willie “WilJay” Moore

We’re introducing our innovative AEO Flex/4 denim technology, and partnered with an awesome WFPF parkour athlete to showcase the revolutionary versatility of our jeans and what you can do in them. Flex/4 is our latest 360° 4-way flex denim that follows your every move, retains its shape, and provides max comfort. We were so impressed by (Willie’s) athletic skills in our Flex/Denim video that we wanted to get to know him a little better. Read on for our full interview!

20120105_InstagramCrops_IG_7

When did you become interested in Parkour?
I’ve always been doing parkour, actually. I was always a pretty outgoing kid trying to do the next big thing that my friends couldn’t. Although I very specifically remembering doing my first back flip in elementary school recess, I never knew what parkour was until I found videos on the internet in middle school. I was also very influenced by the action movies and cartoons at the time.

20120105_InstagramCrops_IG_4

How much time do you spend practicing in a week?
Aside from training a few hours a week, I practice parkour in my own way each and every day. Parkour to me is more mental than it is physical. In its simplicity it’s all about overcoming the obstacles that are in front of you while finding new and creative ways to express yourself along the way. In a weird way I have grown up with Parkour at the forefront of my life and have been its student ever since I was a little boy.

What was the most dangerous Parkour move you’ve done to date? Any injuries?
I once did a double side flip from a pretty high object to a lower one. I sprained my foot first attempt.

20120105_InstagramCrops_IG_2

What is something interesting that most people don’t know about you?
I have never had any formal training in anything I have ever done. I really think big; sometimes too big for my current circumstance. I truly take pride in my ability to adapt to any situation. Everything is a learning experience and a tool that you can use in some shape or form. Attention to detail is everything.

What was your favorite thing about Flex denim?
The AEO Flex line is simply incredible? The Flex denim line is so far the most comfortable clothing that i have ever worn outside of my house! I have recommended them to everyone I know.

Where else would you wear AEO Flex to?
So far I have worn AEO Flex wear to a photo shoot, a video shoot, a stunt shoot, a business meeting, through a holiday, and out lounging with friends. I believe a better question is where wouldn’t I wear them? Hmm.

20120105_InstagramCrops_IG_3

What advice would you offer aspiring Parkour athletes?
My advice to aspiring Parkour athletes as well as anyone pursuing a passion is to always be unique. It is always way easier to be yourself than it is to be just like your competition. Being unique is what makes you valuable! Oh and have fun meeting other weirdos like yourself jumping about.

Any noteworthy projects on the horizon? Are there any projects out there you’d like the opportunity to work on?
I make YouTube videos every week. The goal is to grow my audience. Unlike most entertainers that use social media as a stepping stone, I feel that YouTube has become a large enough platform for me to become a successful, creative, and transparent influencer. I want to be the director, actor, and stuntman. On the other hand I would love to be a well-known secret agent like James Bond or a video game character! Who knows?

20120105_InstagramCrops_IG_1

Favorite movie of all time?
Wow that’s a really hard question! I would have to say that it hasn’t been produced yet. It’s still sitting in my dresser waiting to be directed! I’m kidding! I would have to say that I have a ton of favorite movies but never a favorite of all time past or present. As one of the many runners up, I would have loved to be in the magic movie Now You See Me.

Top 3 on your bucket list?
I want to inspire the youth and give the kids the same hope that I was given by so many great human beings. I want to travel the world with those who need to see it for its many differences and similarities. Last but not least I want to look back at my life when everything said and done and simply be able to say I lived the best life I possibly could in my very own and unique way. I was totally human.

How To Wear AEO A-Line Jeans With The Style Bungalow

A new year marks a new beginning and what better way to ring in 2016 than with a pair of our new AEO A-Line jeans? With just enough flare to express your boho side, these jeans are the perfect addition to your seventies-inspired wardrobe. Stephanie from The Style Bungalow partnered with us for a three part series that involves some serious blues and we can’t wait to show you what she’s wearing. Get to know Stephanie and the inspiration behind her first look below.
Photo Jan 05, 4 20 33 PM

Meet Stephanie: Stephanie is a twenty-something, former ballerina turned PR pro living in South Florida. Addicted to fashion, she started her blog, The Style Bungalow, in March 2014 as a way to share her personal, relatable style, inspirations and thoughts. She believes the choices you make in your day-to-day outfits can send a powerful message. From cool confidence to chic and sophisticated to free-spirited and creative, she feels it’s important to reflect who you are and what you feel through your personal style. When she’s not home blogging, working or dancing the night away, Stephanie can be found running around town searching for cool pieces, spending time with her friends or soaking up the Florida sun!

What Inspired Stephanie’s Look: “These jeans are perfect. I’m petite, about 5’2”, so finding a pair of flares that fit my frame without any alterations is rare! I love how they fit slim through the thigh and slightly flare out from the knee, making my legs look a mile long. They also have a cool, worn-in feel to them and the stretch-denim is very comfortable.

I styled these flares with a chunky knit sweater and a chic belt cinched at the waist with block-heeled sandals to add height. I layered on lots of rings, wore my favorite gold watch and a pair of aviators.”
