Denim trends have the tendency to change constantly – one minute you’re in jeggings and the next you’re searching for the perfect slouchy Tomgirl jean. While it’s always important to wear the fit that feels right for you, it’s fun to experiment with new looks, too. This season, cropped, straight denim is making its appearance, and we couldn’t be more excited. With a looser fit that still hugs your curves thanks to Denim X technology, this timeless silhouette gets an update with cool, frayed seams at the crop that will give your #AEOSTYLE an edgier vibe. Blogger Lisa from By Lisa Linh gave us her own take on styling the Denim X Straight Crop Jean. Get to know Lisa and the inspiration behind her look below!

What Inspired Lisa’s Look:
“Inspired by the love for summer with bare shoulders and ripped denim, classic trends that are chic and perfect for all body types. I decided to pair the Straight Destroy jeans with a loose fitted off-the-shoulder top and strappy heels for an easy summer night out look. Showing just enough skin, in all the right places, this outfit is a go-to for this season.”

Three Ways To Wear Bodysuits With Jennie Ross

Major flashback Friday vibes: the bodysuit is in & we can’t get enough. AEO First Essentials is going to be your go-to shop for this trend. With tons of color variations and fun details like keyhole cutouts, ruffles and ties, the #AEOSTYLE possibilities are endless. Bodysuits are perfect for every occasion, from lounging on the weekends to going out with friends. Model Jennie Ross styled three of our favorite new bodysuits to show you how you can make them your own. Get to know Jennie and the inspiration behind her #AEOSTYLE below!

Meet Jennie: “Hi everyone! I’m Jennie, a 21 year old model, currently living in Boston, MA. I have always had a great love for fashion, styling and the arts. I started modeling in high school, and over the past few years, I was featured in a handful of movies. Everything in my life has been super exciting lately, but it all comes with hard work and dedication. A major goal of mine, ever since I began modeling, was to always remind other women to be confident every day and to remember to always stay true to who they are.”

Jennie Ross styles AEO bodysuits three ways.

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “When I am on the go, either to work or to an audition, this is my go to look. The First Essentials V-Neck Bodysuit  is my number one choice for a top, because it looks so great on, and it’s insanely comfortable. The Bomber Jacket is an essential, in my opinion. It will help bring your streetwear look to the next level. Pair those with a hi-rise shortie, and you’re ready for a night out in the city.”

What Inspired Jennie’s Look: “Growing up in New England, I’ve found that the seasons change far too quickly. That’s why I always keep a cute cardigan around for those chilly late summer nights. In this look, I am wearing the First Essentials Tie Bodysuit and the Tomgirl Jean. I think everyone should have a go-to outfit that you can easily dress up by adding heels and a great pair of earrings.” Jennie recommends pairing this look with a cozy cardigan for when nights get chilly, too!

How To Wear The AEO Sateen X Jegging With Diamonds For Dimes

The AEO Sateen X Jegging is one of our most loved fits. The Sateen X line is made with low twist yarn that enhances the natural softness of our Extreme Jegging. Kelly from Diamonds For Dimes adds a bohemian flare to her #AEOSTYLE by pairing our buff pink jegging back to a seventies inspired top and accessories. Get to know Kelly and her inspiration behind her look below.

Meet Kelly: 
“My name is Kelly Schneider, I’m 23 years old, and from Boston! I’m a recent grad of Providence College and am now working in digital marketing for a jewelry company in Rhode Island. The first year out of college really hits you in terms of expenses. I created Diamonds for Dimes as an outlet to help other girls find fashionable, quality pieces for a great price!”

How to wear AEO Sateen X Jegging

What Inspired Kelly’s Look:
“The end of August and beginning of September can be a tricky time when it comes to fashion. It’s still warm out, but we typically gravitate towards fall pieces because that’s what’s being pushed in stores. That’s why I love the Buff Pink Jegging—it’s the perfect transitional piece from summer to fall! Obviously, any shade of pink is a must for summer, but because these jeggings are more of a dusty rose color they work perfectly with a more muted color palette for fall. And don’t even get me started on how comfortable American Eagle jeggings are—they’re a dream come true!”
