#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Straight

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.

As part of our #AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition, Grace from Gracefullee Made styled our Straight Jean.

What inspired Grace’s look:
Sweaters are my jam in the fall and winter months, especially for a college girl like me. It’s important to be comfortable while walking around campus. It’s the perfect back-to-school look, and this cable knit v-neck sweater is just the right amount of comfort. It’s a loose fit, making it easier to lounge in and also get some studying done. I opted for a cuffed straight dark-rinse denim fit paired with these ankle booties.

Meet Grace:
Grace is the fashion blogger behind Gracefullee Made and lives in North Carolina. She’s a college student enrolled at UNC-Chapel Hill. She’s an avid Instagramer and loves anything that is bright, sparkly and makes a statement.
