What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

As fall quickly approaches, layers are  a must. Mel Denisse grabs her favorite cozy essentials for a weekend  of relaxation and reflection.

What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL
“I spent this early morning retreating and taking some time to ‘be’– my idea of where beauty begins. As important as it is to build up wardrobes for going out, I’ve been embracing the personal ones behind closed doors. I grabbed some essentials from Aerie – the lace wraparound braletteskinny jogger, and duster cardi. The softness and comfort of each piece left me never wanting to take them off. Especially the duster– it’s a piece that I like to leave at the edge of my bed to throw on whenever I need.”

What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

“The idea of beauty and Aerie’s vision behind their AerieREAL campaign is something that gets me so passionate and excited. From featuring unretouched ads, using real models of different sizes, they’ve effortlessly set the stage for ‘real’ to be displayed worldwide. The positive message that it’s not constrained to one body type or personality even, but it’s being brought back to its bare, foundational state. This for me is the core of my blog so it’s amazing to be able to partner with their message reaching so many young women.” What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

“To me, true beauty is learning how to rest– rest in life and rest within yourself. Learning how to be. Everything in us flourishes when we see what’s already within and give it a place to speak out.”What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

How To Style The Button Down Denim Skirt With Lana Jayne

This Fall, we’re seeing the seventies-inspired trend make a big comeback. Our Button Down Denim Skirt is a true style icon that is quintessential retro-vibe. Blogger Lana Jayne pieced together a look that is so effortlessly chic, you’ll have to steal it for yourself. Check out Lana’s #AEOSTYLE below.

Meet Lana: Lana Jayne is a fashion blogger native to Princeton, New Jersey. After working in the magazine industry for notable publications like Women’s Wear Daily, Details and Glamour, Lana’s site is now her favorite way to share what she’s wearing, what pieces and products she’s loving and any insider tips she comes across from friends in the fashion industry.
How to style button down denim skirt with lana JayneWhat Inspired Lana’s Look: “Remember the jean skirts everyone obsessed over in middle school? I never thought I’d wear one again, and in a hilarious twist of fashion fate, denim skirts are making a major comeback for fall. The difference between 10 years ago and today? The high-waisted, button-front ‘70s spin that’s making this season’s version so much cooler. When American Eagle approached me about a fall styling collaboration—honored is an understatement!—the skirt below was my immediate pick. I like the look with a top tucked in, and this black and white turtleneck was my minimalist take on the trend. I’m also wearing one of my favorite pairs of boots for fall!”

Two Styles Of Denim You Need To Try Now

As America’s Favorite Denim Brand, we pride ourselves in offering a wide range of denim choices for our customer, from the skinniest Jegging to the Boho Flare to the modern Kick Boot. A few denim styles rise to the top of our favorites list every year, and this fall we just can’t get enough of the Tomgirl Jean and the Dark Destroyed Jegging! We’ve received tons of #AEOSTYLE pictures showing how you’ve styled these fits, so it’s no secret that you love them, too. We’ve gathered some of our favorite looks featuring the Tomgirl Jean and Dark Destroyed Jegging to spread the style inspiration below.

The Tomgirl Jean
This is the jean that everyone will be talking about this fall. We love the down-to-earth vibe of the Tomgirl Jean, our new relaxed fit. With a low-slung waist, a loose fit through the leg and a tapered ankle, these jeans are quickly becoming one of our favorite go-to denim pieces, especially for the fall season. Keep your look structured by pairing the Tomgirl Jean with a button-down shirt or a leather jacket, or keep it simple by adding a pair of sneakers. No matter how you wear them, you’ll be having more fun than the boys.











Dark Destroyed Denim
Although dark jeggings are always in style, a great pair of Dark Destroyed Denim will take your outfit to the next level this season. Destructed and mended destroyed details update our sexiest, skinniest fit, and the dark hue makes any color and pattern pop, from your basic white t-shirt to fall plaids. Pairing destroyed denim with heels is a great way to add some edge to your go-to outfit, too.











Tell us what denim fit you’re most excited to try in the comments, and don’t forget to show us how you wear it using #AEOSTYLE on Twitter and Instagram.
