Hello! It’s Jenni R., from I SPY DIY. For my fourth installment with AEO, I wanted to add metallic flair to AEO Sateen X Jeggings. Follow my easy step-by-step below to create eye catching #AEOSTYLE that you can call your very own! Want to add studs to more than just jeans? Check out how to make a studded band for your hat here.
Step 2: Arrange the studs on your cuffs into a pattern that you like.
Step 3: Next, glue on the gems and let dry before you wear embellished jeggings that are perfect for fall!
What makes Lows to Luxe #AerieREAL:
“I have been living in Aerie’s comfy basics lately and love the stand they are taking with their #AerieREAL campaign. It’s so important for us to remember that we are enough and embrace our differences. We have all had those days where we wanted to change something about ourselves but you grow to appreciate your differences and I admire Aerie for supporting that.”
“The untouched photos and beautiful clothing complement each other perfectly & I have been living in this t-shirt dress wearing it everywhere from the beach to weekend brunch!”
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.
“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!”
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!”
Our stylist, Erin, is the brains behind the amazing looks that come out of our photoshoots and so much more. Every Monday on our Instagram, she brings the styling to you and features her fave look of the week. We can’t tell you about ALL of the goodies in just one Instagram caption, so check the blog every Monday for more info on Erin’s looks!
This week, it’s all about travel faves. The end of August means it’s time to get back to school, back to work and back to reality. Whether you’re packing up the car for a long drive to campus or heading home from summer vacay on a short flight, Erin’s look proves that your travel outfit can and should be both practical and cute.
Keep it casual in a Striped Tennis Polo (it comes in 4 other colors and psst it’s on sale for $20!) paired with a Skinny Skinny Jogger. The Skinny Skinny is our newest fit in joggers, and we love the extra slim fit update to this favorite style. Have a Beanie in your bag for AC blasts at the airport or as a backup for bedhead after a long day in the car. Underneath, it’s still all about comfort. Sunnie Lightly Lined is our #1 T-shirt bra that you have to feel to believe, and you’ll have a hard time believing you’re even wearing a bra. She’s THAT good. On the bottom, our Signature Boybrief in soft cotton is the best undie choice for staying comfortable on a long travel day.
Finish your travel look with AEO’s Canvas Platform Sneakers, and you’re ready for takeoff. Wheels up, girls!
This fall, it’s all about the 70’s inspired #AEOSTYLE. Our Front Button Soft Skirt is the perfect retro piece to keep you on trend this back to school season. Erica from Fashion Lush rocks our suede skirt and pairs it back to solid black for an effortlessly cool look. Get to know Erica and her inspiration behind her #AEOSTLYE below.

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!
