Back to School Essentials: Leggings

Ever feel like you never want summer to end, but fall can’t come quickly enough? While we’ll be enjoying August to the fullest, we can’t help but get a little excited for one of our favorite parts of the cooler months…new fall styles at Aerie!

Our absolute fall-time necessity would have be to be leggings. So we sat down with Natalie, associate buyer for bottoms at Aerie, to chat about all the deets on her favorite new styles for the Back-to-School season. Leggings may be an everyday staple in your wardrobe, but our new fun prints, details and colors make this essential piece anything but basic. From our morning coffee to dinner with friends, we know we’ll be living in our new leggings 24/7 this fall.


Our new leggings are so comfy…and cute enough to wear all day and all night!

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Sky High 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.

Cathy from Poor Little It Girl styled our newest fit for Fall, our Sky High Jegging, which has our highest rise yet. Designed for a sexy, skinny feel that looks like a jean and feels like a legging.

What inspired Cathy’s look:
Now that the weather is transitioning from summer to fall, we’ve been experiencing hot days and cool nights here in DC. With a pair of Sky High Jeggings, I added a crop floral top which made the perfect date night look! Add on a cozy sweater to keep warm and I’m ready for a casual date-night out with my boyfriend!

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Skinny

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.

Freddy from menswear blog Blue Perk styled our Skinny Jean. Rugged denim and our slimmest fit yet come together to make this jean a modern essential.

What inspired Freddy’s look:
When I think back to school style, I instantly think of shoes and a backpack. These two accessories will be used the most throughout the year and will make an instant statement the first day of class. This is why I chose a backpack and a pair of shoes that compliment each other with their red and blue color contrast. Both of which could be worn all year with blue jeans.

How to Wear: Jogger Pants

This fall we’re mixing street style and comfort like never before. Let’s start with the jogger pant. Chances are you’ve either seen it or you’ve heard about it, but the real question is, have you rocked it yet? If the answer is no, you’re missing out. With its relaxed fit, drawstring waist, and cuffed bottom it offers the perfect balance of yes, you guessed it, style and comfort. Pair with a Plaid Button Down Shirt and Black Coated Denim Jacket for a night out with friends or throw on a Pocket Baseball T-Shirt and Reebok ZQuick Sneaker to run errands around town. Either way, the jogger is ideal for the guy on the go. Have we convinced you yet?
