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!”

What Inspired Erica’s Look:
“I am loving the seventies trend that is all the rage this summer, & this super soft suede skirt fits the vibe perfectly. My style is a bit more edgy, so to give the total look some of my personal flair, I paired this aline mini with a black ribbed mock neck tank, a black fringe trim floor duster, & my fave black ankle booties. Black is always the new black, & I am digging this seventies meets rocker #OOTD (which is also perfectly comfortable in this heat!).” Check out the blog for more looks & be sure to follow me on Instagram!
