#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Overalls

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.

Rima from Fire on the Head styled our Overalls as part of the #AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition. They’re one part old school, one part tomboy, all parts modern cool.

What inspired Rima’s look:
This pair of denim overalls makes looking cool for the new school year super easy. Paired with a slightly preppy v-neck sweater, a beanie and Birkenstocks, you’ll be both comfy and stylish heading to your classes. Oh, and be prepared for a ton of “WHERE did you get your overalls from?”

Farewell AEO 2014 Interns!

At the end of every summer we experience the same bittersweet moment as we say goodbye to our amazing interns! One of those talented interns, Tyreke White, spent the summer in our photo studio and demonstrated his talent of creating beautiful imagery. Inspired by his love of the popular blog, turned book, Humans of New York, Tyreke had an idea that goes far beyond the camera lens.  He wanted to create a photo book that would capture the emotion and moments of his fellow colleagues to serve as a reminder of the special friendships formed for years to come.  A project that could be shared and hopefully just the beginning of his life long journey to inspire the world.

Introducing the 2014 AEO Interns:

InternCollage

Row 1, L to R: Kristen Pospychala, Tyreke White, Chelsea Schulze, Megan Lundy, Maria Ilochi, Mark Dai, Kristin Schmidt | Row 2, L to R: Natalia Concepcion, Kirsty Butchart, Allese Kukalis, Angie Minnick, Chris Uhler, Julia Goll, Ellie Seta, Taylor Johns  | Row 3, L to R: Jared Clemmensen, Kelsey Birsic, Timothy McNally, Laura McCanney, Lindsey Barbour, Wesley Jernigan, Ali Garoon, Tara Llewellyn | Row 4, L to R: Tiffany Trinh, Alex D’Angelo, Megan Albright, Abby Einwag, Brian Kang, Brooke Hanby, Nicholas Massina, and Eric Mink

Tyreke put six questions in a hat and had each of his colleagues randomly pull one out with the task to answer the question wholeheartedly.  The responses from each participant is what evoked the emotion that Tyreke caught on film. We chose our favorite answer from each question to share with you below:

What is your greatest fear?
“I’d have to say my biggest fear is not pursuing my dreams and not going after what I think’s most important to me, even if that means being selfish. I just don’t want to be complacent.” – Nick M.

In five years, what do you hope to have accomplished?
“What I hope to have accomplished in five years is a good start to my career coming out of college, maybe even looking at grad school at this point, and really just enjoying what I’m doing, waking up and being happy with where I am.” – Chris U.

To you, what defines true happiness?
“True happiness, to me, means not having to think about being happy because that’s just how you live your life.” – Alex D.

To you, what defines true success?
“I define true happiness as waking up every morning, being excited about the people I’m with, the things that I’m doing, what I value in life and having that surrounding me at all times and being a point of hope, drive, and motivation.” – Kelsey B.

What inspires you?
“What inspires me are people, traveling, and finding beauty in the little things.” – Lindsey B.

Who has been the most influential person in your life and how?
“My mom actually might be superwoman. The best advice she’s given me is to keep laughing no matter the circumstance because laughing will get you through anything. She’s always been right.” – Brooke H.

 

Meet Tyreke White:

“The reason I began my photographic journey five years ago was very simple, I wanted to capture the world. I wanted to capture those fleeting moments that we often times forget about as quickly as they happen, and photography was a good device for this. Photography has allowed me to explore the huge spectrum of human emotions and personalities. Above all, photography has given me a subtle voice, a way to express how I’m feeling and to fearlessly share my story, my passions, and my dreams. Storytelling was the true inspiration for this project, however. It’s all too easy to take for granted the fact that everyone has a unique story worth hearing and remembering. So, when that storytelling is coupled with a shutter-click, the story is immediately ingrained for eternity – in a manner that is not only delicate but also inspiring. It is in this way that I hope to inspire the world. Thank you, AEO, for giving me the opportunity to showcase the stories of my fellow interns. And thank you, Humans of New York, for the photographic inspiration.”

Wishing you all the success in the world as you conquer your dreams, Tyreke!!

We would love to hear what inspires you and what you think defines true happiness. Tell us in the comments below.

Allie DeBor, Penn State University: “American Eagle Outfitter’s high-rise jeggings are the perfect match for me. For heading to class, they are a steal in achieving a look that’s simple, laid back and of course fashionable as ever.

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: 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. Cat from Cat Wright Style caught our attention with her amazing #AEOSTYLE photos.

We asked Cat to style one of our most iconic fits, the Jegging. The jegging is our sexiest, skinniest fit…. it fits like a jean and feels like a legging (it doesn’t get any better than that)!

What inspired Cat’s look:
There’s nothing I love more than denim, so if I’m wearing black jeans I like to layer a simple tank with a denim vest or button up. I believe a hat can hide even the worst hair day and I love the pop of neon in this “Los Angeles” beanie that I will no doubt wear no matter how hot it is outside. My look is never complete without sunnies, turquoise accessories and the right watch that can hold its own and doesn’t beg to be asked ‘What time is it?’
