How to Wear the Jegging Crop with Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes

Summer is nearly upon us and it’s so close to shorts weather we can taste it. Before you break out the shorties, take a moment to appreciate all that is the Hi-Rise Jegging Crop.

Ashley from Polka Dots and Sailor Stripes shows us she wears her favorite style of Hi-Rise Jegging Crop below. Its legging-like fit, destroyed details and release hem make this jegging crop truly one of a kind.

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Jegging Crop with Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes

What Inspired Ashley’s Look:
“The truth behind Polka Dots & Sailor Stripes is that when I am not shooting or going anywhere special, I tend to opt for comfort. Generally, to me comfort means my favorite denim, whether it be shorts or pants…and a comfy t-shirt. This pair of denim is the newest addition into my closet, and I cannot believe how comfortable they are. Back in the day I was an avid American Eagle denim junky. It wasn’t until recently that I actually explored back into the store only to find out they have amazing black distressed cutoffs like these ones, and some of the best boyfriend jeans on the market. This particular cut is taking me way back to when the best of both worlds was found in my favorite pair of capris.”

“The nice thing about these pants are the rips – they’re more distressed than most of the pants I own, but the patches behind the rips allow me to still feel 100% comfortable in them. I also love the ‘release hem,’ which adds a bit more interest with the distressed, uneven coloring.”

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

Whether you go all out for festival season or give it a subtle nod, our festival faves are sure to bring out your inner boho babe.

We asked our girl Color Me Courtney to show us what she would wear to a festival. Between the crochet, destroyed denim and pop of color, it’s safe to say that we’re in festival heaven.

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

What Inspired Courtney’s Look:
“For this festival-esqe look I turned to Aerie & American Eagle, because they have a little bit of that boho vibe without being too bananas about it. When I needed festival fashion, they were the perfect partner for creating this chillaaxxeddd look – that’s perfect for Coachella or just somewhere coastal (ps is it summer yet?).”

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

“A girly-lacey bikini in a fun pop of color, prevented me from wearing a bra (score) while providing a little color pop when layered under a flowy poncho! I paired it with basic distressed denim shorts, an easy basic and must have for Spring/summer before adding studded sandals, a crocheted backpack and black sunnies. Oh and so you could still recognize me, I added a bright orange lip ;)”

How to Wear the AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie with The Fashionista’s Diary

If you haven’t tried our AEO Denim X collection  yet, now is the perfect time. We’ve merged our high performance stretch denim with the classic Hi-Rise Shortie to create, you guessed it, the AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie. So now you can enjoy this revolutionary soft stretch cotton denim all year round.

Lauren Ashley from The Fashionista’s Diary pairs her AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie with a textured blouse and statement necklace for the ultimate casual glam look.

Meet Lauren:
“Hi, everyone! I’m Lauren Ashley and I blog over at The Fashionista’s Diary, which is a personal style and beauty blog based out of the sunshine state. Living in Miami, I have to get creative with my looks and really find ways to dress cute without dying of heat (seriously, it’s so hot here!). You’ll often see me sporting either neutrals or fun prints. I also love nothing more than some amazing jewels! Being a college student, comfort is key for me. While I love to get dressed up, I have to be comfortable to walk around campus and head to class!”

How to Wear the Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie

What Inspired Lauren’s Look: 
“I absolutely love my AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie in the dark rinse. First of all, darker colored jeans make you appear slimmer, so what girl doesn’t love that? Also, they are so comfortable. Seriously, guys, I could wear these all day! They have an amazing stretch to them and really make you feel confident and comfortable. I decided to go with a blush textured high/low shirt and paired it with my newest statement necklace. I wanted to keep a neutral look while still adding a bit of sass and print. I love that there are so many ways to dress up or down a great pair of denim shorts and I chose to keep things classic and casual. I also want to wear my new shorts with scalloped ballet flats and a printed top. These will most likely be my staple shorts for the summer!”
