#AEOSTYLE: Prep Rock

#AEOSTYLE: Prep Rock

This spring, our designers and stylists were inspired by 90s grunge when creating looks for our spring collection. A combination of influences from both culture and fashion – think Nirvana and Seattle inspired plaids – make up the trend we’re calling prep rock.

What is prep rock? Prep rock is a modern take on dressing down a look by adding details that are just a little rough around the edges. Get the rocker vibe with washed shawl cardigans, distressed denim and five-pocket pants.

Andrew, a graphic designer at American Eagle Outfitters, modeled three different takes on the prep rock look for us for a little styling inspiration. Scroll through to shop his looks and show us your prep rock style on Twitter and Instagram with #AEOSTYLE for a chance to see yourself on AE.com.

Want to show your American pride—or your Americana #AEOSTYLE, as the case may be? American Eagle Outfitters has so many products guaranteed to help you do just that. We’re starry eyed over new takes on red, white and blue styles from old school Americana trends including denim overalls and boho-inspired tops to dip-dyed intarsia sweaters.

On our Spring 2014 photo shoot in San Francisco, our Director of Styling, Preston, took a break to show us one of his favorite looks – a burnout Americana T-shirt worn by Chyanne. He paired the Faded Flag Tank with a Skinny Jean in a light destroyed wash and a pair of cool printed Slip-On Sneakers, perfect for Chyanne to wear while she’s out shredding the streets. Preston continued channeling the California vibe with pops of color from a knit beanie and mint sunglasses (mint is one of the hottest colors for spring).

#AEOSTYLE: Editors Love Denim

#AEOSTYLE: Editors Love Denim

This month, American Eagle Outfitters jeans have been seen in some of our favorite magazines. The March issues of both Nylon and Teen Vogue featured two trends that are essential to our spring wardrobe: acid-washed jeans and denim overalls. Both of these trends seem to come back year after year and we couldn’t be more excited that the editors loved our new takes on these staples.

Nylon’s March issue with cover star Vanessa Hudgens pulled together a roundup of their favorite acid-washed jeans in the story “Acid Trip”. The roundup featured one of our newly updated jean fits, Straight. Our Straight Jean has a classic slim fit that looks great with rolled cuffs and your favorite spring shoes. We’ve updated it even further with a cool acid-wash and destroyed details.

In March’s spring fashion issue of Teen Vogue, featuring cover star Lea Michele, AEO’s denim overalls made an editorial appearance. This throwback style just got boho cool with front slant pockets, whiskering and fading. Paired with a snapback baseball cap and button down shirt, denim overalls are an easy way to take on the tomboy trend this season. To do the tomboy trend best with no fear of looking sloppy, try solid neutrals like black, grey and white.
