How to wear the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle with Nomade En Vogue

Just when we thought our sexiest, skinniest fit couldn’t get any better, we went and made the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle. Not only does it look like a jean and feel like a legging, it has a mid front 9″ rise, hits right at the ankle and features some great, destroyed details.

Our girl Chloe, blogger behind Nomad En Vogue, isn’t afraid to add a pop of color to her winter wardrobe with her new favorite pair of Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle below.

Meet Chloe:
Hi all! My name is Chloe.  I am a twenty-something year old southern girl, who is transitioning from being a college student into starting my career in the world of fashion and retail.  I have moved five times in my life and can’t call one place home.  I have an obsession with nude shoes, lip gloss, fro-yo and little black dresses.  I love making something old new again. I love “treasure hunting”.  I am a major animal lover, a pretty bad singer, and I don’t like going to the movie theater.  I’m a summer girl and my happy place is a lake on a hot summer day.

What Inspired Chloe’s Look:
I love a good transition piece in my wardrobe, and these jeggings are just that!  When you think mint green, you immediately think of it as a spring color, but oh how times have changed!  This pretty hue can definitely be worn year-round.  Already in the mood for Valentine’s Day, I decided to pair the jeggings with this adorable “Lovers Gonna Love” tee.  I added a floral overlay, which still works great for this time of the year because it’s black!  I also kept the look feeling “wintery” by pairing it with my favorite pair of black booties.  This outfit is fun, feminine, and a little bit boho.  I wore it running errands around town during the day, and then out for a dinner date that night. It made for the perfect Sunday FunDay look.

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Denim

Whether you’re a Slim or Classic Bootcut kind of guy, our Men’s Denim selection is on point this season. Seriously, we have a fit for everyone.

Anthony from Closet Freaks Blog shows us that denim doesn’t always have to mean blue jeans. See how he styles his favorite pair of AEO Skinny Jeans below.

Meet Anthony:
Anthony lives and works in New York City as a structural engineer by day and a blogger by night. Much like his seemingly separate jobs, his style is a cool contrast of bold & trendy with subtle & classic.

What Inspired Anthony’s Look:
When people think of denim I think most often blue jeans probably come to their minds, so for this outfit I wanted to try something different and wear a colored denim. These khaki jeans with their distressed, worn-in look inspired vintage workwear vibes in my mind. To play that up I paired rugged classics like a railroad stripe buttondown with a plaid lumber-jacket, and a black lace up boot for an outdoorsy masculine feel. And because I love layers and contrast, I quite literally topped it all off with a tailored navy topcoat to add a polished touch to the look.

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Western Shirt

The western-inspired trend is one we’re really excited about this season. We took our iconic button down and gave it a western flair with a straight point collar, chest patch pockets and barrel cuffs.

We asked our girl, Olia, the blogger behind Love, Olia to show us how she styles our favorite Plaid Western Button Down Shirt below.

What Inspired Olia’s Look:
I love being able to wear a plaid shirt year round. I typically size up for an oversized look and love to do a half tuck in the front into denim or a pair of cargo pants like this one. Keeps the look cute yet still casual and sophisticated.

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Destroyed Denim

We have the best destroyed denim to break into a new year. Each pair has been carefully deconstructed and reconstructed to give you the perfect broken in look. With 23 fits and 117 washes, we know you’ll find the perfect style to help create memories that last.

What Inspired Sara’s Look:
Now I don’t know about you, but I tend to wear the same pair of denim until they absolutely fall apart because I dread going “jean’s shopping.” While my stature is petite, I have muscular thighs and calves. I am learning to appreciate my curves, but have a tough time finding jeans with the best balance of stretch, comfort and fit. Recently, I’ve discovered and fallen in love with American Eagle’s denim, especially their jeggings. They are available in different waistlines, washes, and lengths while maintaining the most wearable stretch and control. Ah, I can’t rave about them enough. I’ve collected a few of the different denim shades and explored their high-waisted options.

The lighter wash is extremely versatile and I adore the distressed accents to add some edge to your look. They are great for a casual day shopping, stylish for a lunch date with your gal pals, yet relaxed enough to wear for a road trip. Jeans are a necessity for these winter months ahead and look amazing paired with boots and a shaggy knit jacket!

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: PLAID

Every closet needs a great plaid shirt. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Between it’s classic fit, bold print and button down collar, you’re guaranteed to want one in every color. See how Saul from Trend Styled puts his twist on our timeless button down below.

Meet Saul:

A Texas born transplant living in NYC. Saul is a style and grooming lifestyle blogger and photographer.

What Inspired Saul’s Look:
I love the flexibility a plaid shirt has when styling an outfit. Easily dressed up under a suit or dressed down with some athletic inspiration, my plaids rotate through my wardrobe no matter the season or occasion. I kept this look pretty casual as I ran errands – pairing my AEO plaid with some of my favorite AEO jogger sweats and structured denim jacket made my look super comfortable without losing any style points!

7 things we love: Holiday Edition

20141217_7_THINGS

{ Image Source: 1. | 1. | 1. | 1. L. to R. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | }

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! We’re getting in the spirit with a holiday-themed edition of 7 Things We Love. So grab a glass of eggnog, settle down in front of the fireplace and check out our top picks for the season (and be sure to let us know your favorite holiday things, too).

Wake Up In Fun PJ’s
There’s nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning (or, okay, any winter day really) in a set of really fun pajamas. For girls, we’re totally loving our Fair Isle Knit Legging (currently sold out online, but check your closest AEO for availability), especially when it’s paired with a too cute for words sequined penguin sweatshirt. And for guys, we can’t get enough of buffalo check this season (the “Iced Out” graphic on the T just adds to the festive feel).

Give An AEO Gift Card To Someone Special
Still stumped over what to buy for your brother/sister/mom/dad/BFF/etc? Why not give an AEO Gift Card? Whether you choose a traditional card, an E-Gift Card or a Mobile Gift Card, they’re always the perfect gift for everyone on your list. We’ve created tons of fun designs for them this year, and you can even personalize a digital greeting for the recipient! Just visit ae.com/giftcard from your phone to include a voice or text message with the card.

Download The Elf Stickers on Facebook Messenger
Want to make the Facebook messages you send a little more fun? The Elf stickers (yes, inspired by your favorite human elf) will have you laughing and messaging up a storm. All of the best lines from the movie are included, from “Santa! I know him!” and “I just like to smile!” to “You sit on a throne of lies!” and “I’m a cotton headed ninny muggins.” The only problem? You might get addicted to sending them.

Listen to “That’s Christmas To Me” By Pentatonix
Honestly? It’s hard to even choose a favorite song from this album. The intricate harmonies and awesome voices of this five-person a cappella group soar over some of the most loved Christmas songs and give them a fresh new twist. We’re especially digging “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” “Sleigh Ride” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”—but, really, you can’t go wrong with any of the songs on this album.

DIY A Hot Chocolate Bar
Come on, who doesn’t love hot chocolate on a cold winter day? We know we do. We scoured Pinterest this year for ideas on how to turn an empty space into a hot cocoa wonderland. Buy some marshmallows, cinnamon and peppermint sticks, some fancy mugs and maybe a stocking or two (oh, and lots of hot cocoa, of course)… and get ready to do some serious chocolate drinking!

Read How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Is it really the holidays without this gem by Dr. Seuss? It’s one of the most loved Christmas stories for a reason. So travel to Whoville with the grouchy, grumpy Grinch and go along on his journey toward discovering what Christmas is really about.

Watch Love Actually
We don’t know about you, but the holidays really haven’t begun until we watch this star-studded movie of intersecting plots and characters, filled with the spirit of joy, giving and love. (Not to mention a killer dance scene by Hugh Grant.) It warms our hearts more and more every year!
