My blog, Trendy Chickadee, is for anyone who is curious about fashion and cares about the story behind the brands we wear. I hope to inspire people to never stop searching for beautiful adventures, beautiful people and beautiful clothes!”

What Inspired Molly’s Look:
“I’ve seen embroidered bomber jackets walking down the runways of couture fashion brands, but I was struggling to find one for myself that didn’t break the bank…until I partnered with AEO! This bomber is just what I was looking for at a price I could afford. AEO took on this silky, colorful trend perfectly, so I paired my new bomber with distressed denim (always a favorite of mine) and headed to the beach for a fun day of shooting and styling. Hope you guys love! ”

Home For The Holidays Packing Guide

Whether you’re going home for winter break or visiting family for the holiday season, our packing guide will have you prepared!

LAY EVERYTHING OUT

Before you start packing things into your suitcase, lay them on your bed so you can see what you have set out. This will help you remember things you may be forgetting and can help with chronic over-packing.

How To Style The Hi-Rise Kick Crop Jean with FOREVERVANNY

Cropped denim is the fit you need in your closet right now. Among other classic 90s trends, we’re excited to style the crop jean this season. Updated styles like the Vintage Hi-Rise and Jegging Ankle bring the crop trend into the new millennium, and one of the most exciting fits right now is an new take on the pedal pusher – but this isn’t the jean you remember, believe us! A longer length and a more subtle flare at the hem give you the Kick Crop Jean. Blogger Van Le from FOREVERVANNY styled the Denim X Hi-Rise Kick Crop. Check out Vanny’s #AEOSTYLE below, and if you love her look, be sure to check out her previous post on the blog!

Forever Vanny styles the Hi-Rise Kick Crop Jean

Meet Vanny:
FOREVERVANNY was created in 2013 by Van Le as an outlet to document her personal style, photography, and fashion inspirations. Over the years, the site has evolved to be a collection of fashion photographs personally styled and shot under the creative direction of Van Le. Based in New York, FOREVERVANNY‘s style is as diverse as the people who roam this city. Chic, polished, and a little bit of contrast between delicate details and tomboy-ish vibe is what she aims to show. Beyond fashion, FOREVERVANNY seeks to find other forms of inspirations through different cultures and travel adventures with photo-diaries and thoughtful reflections of her experiences.”

How To Get Vanny’s Look:
Play with lengths for a look that stands out. The Kick Crop Jean can be intimidating to style because of its unique silhouette, so to contrast the short hem, Van paired the denim with a long bell sleeve shirt that nearly covers her hand. We love the way the bell of the sleeves and the wide bottom of the crop jeans complement each other and pull the entire look together. Make sure to choose an ankle boot that shows a bit of skin between the bottom of the jean and the top of the shoe so that your legs look longer, not shorter.

How to Style an Off-the-Shoulder Top

Off-the-Shoulder Tops went straight from trend to wardrobe essential! Our Off-the-Shoulder Top’s super comfy stretch and pop of color make it a must-have.

Demi from The Efflorescence  styles her Off-the-Shoulder Top with AEO’s Denim X Super Low Jegging for a back-to-school #OOTD.

How to Style an Off-the-Shoulder Top“Where do I even start? If you’re into fashion or regularly visit a mall, you’ve probably noticed that “off the shoulder” has been a huge trend this year, its been seen in dresses, sweaters, and tops.. And if you follow my blog The Efflorescence, then you probably know that I love a good trend.

It’s hard to find a happy medium between following trends and being comfortable and luckily, Aerie created the perfect combo. I don’t know about you, but I like being comfortable when I walk around my college campus. So many people that I know have this idea that the only way to dress comfortably for class is wearing leggings and sweatpants. Little do they know that this is actually the farthest from the truth.”

How to Style an Off-the-Shoulder Top“You might think its crazy of me to say that in my two years at college I’ve never worn sweats to class, but when Aerie makes clothes that actually make you feel just as comfortable as you would if you were wearing your favorite pair of sweats it all makes sense. They give you the opportunity to look cute and be comfy (It doesn’t get much better than that.) The top is perfectly flowy light material, while the bottoms have the look of jeans but feel like leggings.”

How To Style The Super Soft Jegging With Catcher in the Style

While we’re all about denim at AEO, we also place a lot of importance on comfortable fashion. We believe that great style doesn’t have to be separated from comfort and easy dressing. That’s why we created one of our newest denim fits, the AEO Super Soft Jegging. This jegging is made with extra stretch and amazingly soft fabric for a fit that you won’t ever want to take off. If you’re looking for even more stretch that won’t bag out, the Super Soft Jegging is also available in with X4 technology! We challenged blogger Thania from Catcher in the Style to create a look featuring the Super Soft Jegging, and she came up with a classically edgy look that will take you from work or class to dinner or a night out. Thania’s full look & inspiration behind her outfit are below!

What Inspired Thania’s Look:
“As opposed to the usual suspect of an extensive color palette for summer, take a more monochromatic approach on your outfit of the day. Experts say grey is a color that makes people feel self-sufficient. With that said, let a white shirt, grey pants and loafers be your leading uniform transitioning into fall.

This grey denim jegging pant is perfection. It juxtaposes comfort with an effortlessly chic style. It’s great paired with a blouse and an oversized coat for the office and can be worn for happy hour without skipping a beat.”
