AEO FLEX SHOP: We upgraded your favorite denim, underwear & shorts with high-stretch technology for superior flexibility. Last year, we introduced you to some of our best denim yet: Flex/Denim. Flex/Denim is made to move with you, not restrict you. Then, we took Flex one step further by incorporating this technology into our Men’s Underwear Collection. You’ll find everything from slim fit boxers to classic briefs and trunks that will pair seamlessly with every denim fit. And now? Flex technology lives in our shorts. Take a look at the entire AEO Flex Shop & find every fit with superior flexibility and  revolutionary comfort, retention & durability.

How To Style The Denim X4 Hi-Rise Jegging Crop With ForeverVanny

With temperatures being higher than normal this winter, we’re celebrating by showing our…ankles! Our Denim X4 Hi-Rise Jegging Crop is all about the 4-Way stretch. Made with upgraded flexibility & 360-degree movement, you’re destined to love these jeans. Van from ForeverVanny styled this denim to reflect her weekend wear which includes anything with sneakers. Get to know Van and her #AEOSTYLE below…your style and ankles will thank you.

How To Style The Denim X4 Hi-Rise Jegging Crop With ForeverVanny

Meet Van: “Hi, I’m Van. I’m just a regular 22-year-old currently residing in New York City. As someone who has always had a love for photography, I combined my hobby of playing dress up together with that, and out came a fashion blog. I don’t really take my style as seriously as most people with fashion blogs do. I just wear what I’m really comfortable in and experiment with different trends when I’m ready for it, as opposed to hopping on every latest trend. I studied Sociology at Uni while keeping the blog serving almost as my portfolio on the side, and that landed me a job in the fashion industry right after. It’s really awesome to have the freedom to dress your truest self for the job you have every day!”

What Inspired Van’s Look: “My look is most definitely inspired by my weekend mantra — sneakers with anything. Having to wear dressier shoes for work, not that that is a bad thing, but I find myself leaning towards comfier shoes on my off days. One of the easiest things to go with sneakers is a perfectly fitted pair of destroyed skinnies. I love how these AEO jeggings take the look of denim but feel like leggings. I always try to balance everything, so if my knees are exposed, I’ll have to cover my neck, hence the sweater. To keep the neutral tone of this combination of grey and camel, I threw on a fluffy white coat that makes me look like a walking sheep *BAAA. With this look, you can find me roaming the streets of New York, sitting in a coffee shop trying to take the perfect shot of my mocha for the gram or at a cafe brunching!”

Laura’s Tips: How To Wear Pattern On Pattern

One of the biggest trends throughout our latest collection is patterns and prints. We’re excited about the life bold patterns bring to some of our favorite styles like button-down shirts, rompers and tees. Patterns are a fun update to basic pieces and provide the opportunity to refresh how you mix and match your closet. Since the spotlight is on prints, we asked our Styling Manager, Laura, to show us a few ways to wear pattern on pattern. This isn’t as tricky as it sounds, and anyone can do it with a few quick styling tips! Laura says, “I love mixing pattern on pattern! As long as you keep the color scheme somewhat similar, anyone can pull it off.”

Laura recommends playing with the scales of prints (for example, mix a bigger patterned tee with a smaller printed button-down, as you’ll see below) or keeping the prints close in size for an unexpected contrast. Stick to the same color scheme or tie in one color from each piece to seamlessly bring the look together. Check out all three of Laura’s pattern on pattern outfits below!

How To Wear Pattern On Pattern Women's Outfit

Shop the Look: Ruffle Wrap Romper | Denim Boyfriend Shirt | Dolce Vita Ciara Espadrille | Metal Round Sunglasses

How To Wear It: Take it easy in this effortlessly sweet pairing. Make pattern on pattern work here by tying in the blue tones of the romper to a patterned chambray button-down shirt. Laura recommends tying the button-down around the waist to show off the scale in pattern. Finish off the look with neutral flats or booties to dress the outfit up – your choice! Add some mirrored sunnies for a cool touch that doesn’t overrun the look.

How To Wear Pattern On Pattern Men's Outfit

Shop the Look: Bleach Wash T-Shirt | Poplin Button Down T-Shirt | Slim Active Flex Jean
Lace-Up Sneaker | Clubmax Sunglasses

How To Wear It: The key to this pattern on pattern look is working in the same color family. Because the patterns are vastly different, Laura kept both prints in the blue family so that combining the shirts wouldn’t feel overwhelming. Khaki slim pants help to neutralize the bold top half, and sneakers keep it casual. Black top-rimmed sunglasses make the look street-style ready.

How To Wear Pattern On Pattern Women's Outfit

Shop the Look: Soft & Sexy V-Neck T-Shirt | Don’t Ask Why Soft Jogger Pant | Strappy Sandal
Triangle Pendant Necklace | Chevron Bracelet Duo

How To Wear It: Go boho in this vibrant, free-spirited look. Pair a patterned soft pant (we used a jogger-style pant here) with a tie-dye tee. Make sure that the tee and pants contain corresponding colors – in this case, a beautiful deep indigo – so that the pairing is deliberate, not haphazard! Tuck the shirt in slightly in the front, and pile on bracelets and a necklace. Finish the look with brown strappy sandals.
