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!

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!

What To Wear: New Year’s Eve

We can all agree that New Year’s Eve is a time to shine. Whether you’re ringing in the new year out on the town or staying in with family and friends, a little bit of sparkle can go a long way.

Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish shows us how she styles her favorite Aerie finds to watch the ball drop.

What inspired Allexis’s Looks:
Hey friends! When it comes to NYE we all know there are really only two ways to celebrate: out on the town with friends, or snuggled in at home with loved ones. To make your New Year’s Eve a little easier I put together a look for you all for each way to celebrate. I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ringing in the new year with a night out on the town I want to be warm, comfortable, and cute. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging a dress down all night or having freezing bare legs. These cute sequined leggings are THE perfect piece to meet those needs without having to compromise looking great!

To complete the look and keep it fun, I paired these bad boys with a fun printed sweater and wedges that are comfy enough to dance the night away in. Sequins are really a no brainer when it comes to NYE and some other fun ways to style some cute sequined leggings would be with a fun graphic tee and classic pair of pumps, or with a boyfriend blazer and plain white tee. The possibilities are endless and there’s really no way to go wrong with these leggings!

For a night in, watching the ball drop on Times Square on the good old television, the key to a cute look is keeping it cozy while bringing in fun sparkly elements that make it so it doesn’t just feel like another boring night at home! This sequined bralette layered underneath this soft henley is the perfect way to add that bit of New Year’s fun while these cozy little knit PJ shorts keep things casual and comfy!
