How to Make Studded Jeans with I Spy DIY

Hi everyone! It’s Jenni from I Spy DIY. I’m back with the fifth part of my series of DIY projects all around denim this Back to School season. This project is studded jeans which is one of the coolest trends for fall. Don’t just stop at jeans – you can stud shorts, canvas sneakers, denim jackets and more!

#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Men’s Joggers

With a relaxed fit and cuffed bottom, joggers are where style and comfort come together. Joggers are without a doubt the hottest trend in pants right now. We asked Alex from The Casual Boardwalk to show us how he wears this pant.

What inspired Alex’s look:
I decided to style my joggers by starting with a dressy piece, like a button down shirt and pairing them with a denim jacket and graphic t-shirt to make a contrasting statement. I enjoy combining casual pieces with dressier pieces in order to make an outfit stand out. You can’t go wrong with a pair of comfortable navy blue sneakers, to tie together an entire outfit. This look featuring the comfortable and stylish AEO Joggers works perfectly to go out on a date or explore the city with your friends.

5 fashion bloggers show us how they wear our newest obsession: denim X

Introducing Denim X… our best fit ever.

Revolutionary high performance stretch that’s softer than ever before. Never loses its shape… so you can show off your assets all day (and night). Designed with Lycra Invista stretch to move with you.

We partnered with five bloggers to give them an exclusive first look at Denim X. Check out how they styled our newest obsession below.

Nicholl from The Chiffon Diary

Emily from Life with Emily
“Denim is a part of my daily wardrobe. I am definitely what you call “a jeans girl”, so when I am looking to purchase denim I have high expectations. American Eagle Outfitters’ Denim X exceeded any and all expectations I had. Not only is the wash a great color, the stretch is just enough without it feeling too tight (or getting loose by the end of the day like other denim does)! Denim X has quickly become one of my favorite pairs to wear.”

Jessica from My Style Vita
“When I think of fall essentials, I think of this outfit to a tee. A great hat, a cozy knit sweater, moto boots and comfy, great fitting, dark wash skinny jeans. These are not only flattering, but beyond soft and comfy. I love the high rise on these as it helps to slim you out and keep everything held in!”

Megan from From Lush to Blush
One of my biggest pet peeves in denim is when the ankle on skinny jeans is baggy and I am so excited that I finally found a cut that fits my ankle (and everything else) right: Denim X by American Eagle Outfitters. Since it’s not quite that cool yet, but it is mid-September, I wanted to showcase two ways to wear the same jeans and top to bring the look from summer to fall.
