#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Hi-Rise 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.

Christina from Oh So Glam took on our Hi-Rise Jegging. We took our sexiest, skinniest fit to the next level with a higher rise waist. It looks like a jean and feels like a legging.

What inspired Christina’s look:
The distressed denim trend is one of my all-time favorite trends, but I love that these jeggings are fitted. It brings a chicness to the outfit.  I paired them with this everyday henley and my new favorite trend, the plaid shirt tied around the waist… 90’s grunge at its finest!

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Slim

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all… so we put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits for you. This season, we’re highlighting real bloggers in each of our denim fits to give you styling inspiration.

Ryan Charchian from The Fashionisto Diaries is wearing our Slim Jean this season. Our Slim Jean is about to be your new favorite fit… lean, versatile and perfect for someone who prefers slim but not skinny.

What inspired Ryan’s look:
American Eagle Outfitters has a ton of great pieces to go back to school with. I paired this tribal print baseball tee with light wash slim jeans to show the contrast of the pieces. The slim jeans are also very comfortable if you aren’t in a skinny jean kind of mood for class. This backpack is really big and I’ll be able to carry my laptop and textbooks with me no problem.

At school, shoes make a statement. These camo-like New Balances really stand out with the bright “N,” which also matches the baseball tee.

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Favorite Boyfriend

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all… so we put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits for you. This season, we’re highlighting real bloggers in each of our denim fits to give you styling inspiration.

Our first blogger is Ashlyn from Let it Be Beautiful wearing our Favorite Boyfriend Jean. Every girl needs that one relaxed jean. Take casual to the next level with the fit that’s great for class or long, lazy weekends.

What inspired Ashlyn’s look:
“Summer is half way over & before we know it, fall will be making its infamous debut. That means it will be time to head back to school, crack down at work and say hello to cooler weather! To be honest, I am ready for cooler weather so that I can pull out my comfy jeans, cozy cardigans & darker hues like navy & brown. I am not wishing summer away by any means, but fall weather is one of my favorite times of the year. I know skinny jeans have been the fad for some time, but the Favorite Boyfriend fit is certainly becoming my new favorite. They are super casual, really comfy and they go great with this peep-toe bootie or a knee high riding boot. Pairing them with this floral and lace top along with the white ribbed over-sized cardigan helps keep the summer breezes at bay & welcomes the cooler temps as they start to arise.”
