How to wear the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle with Nomade En Vogue

Just when we thought our sexiest, skinniest fit couldn’t get any better, we went and made the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle. Not only does it look like a jean and feel like a legging, it has a mid front 9″ rise, hits right at the ankle and features some great, destroyed details.

Our girl Chloe, blogger behind Nomad En Vogue, isn’t afraid to add a pop of color to her winter wardrobe with her new favorite pair of Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle below.

Meet Chloe:
Hi all! My name is Chloe.  I am a twenty-something year old southern girl, who is transitioning from being a college student into starting my career in the world of fashion and retail.  I have moved five times in my life and can’t call one place home.  I have an obsession with nude shoes, lip gloss, fro-yo and little black dresses.  I love making something old new again. I love “treasure hunting”.  I am a major animal lover, a pretty bad singer, and I don’t like going to the movie theater.  I’m a summer girl and my happy place is a lake on a hot summer day.

What Inspired Chloe’s Look:
I love a good transition piece in my wardrobe, and these jeggings are just that!  When you think mint green, you immediately think of it as a spring color, but oh how times have changed!  This pretty hue can definitely be worn year-round.  Already in the mood for Valentine’s Day, I decided to pair the jeggings with this adorable “Lovers Gonna Love” tee.  I added a floral overlay, which still works great for this time of the year because it’s black!  I also kept the look feeling “wintery” by pairing it with my favorite pair of black booties.  This outfit is fun, feminine, and a little bit boho.  I wore it running errands around town during the day, and then out for a dinner date that night. It made for the perfect Sunday FunDay look.

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Denim

Whether you’re a Slim or Classic Bootcut kind of guy, our Men’s Denim selection is on point this season. Seriously, we have a fit for everyone.

Anthony from Closet Freaks Blog shows us that denim doesn’t always have to mean blue jeans. See how he styles his favorite pair of AEO Skinny Jeans below.

Meet Anthony:
Anthony lives and works in New York City as a structural engineer by day and a blogger by night. Much like his seemingly separate jobs, his style is a cool contrast of bold & trendy with subtle & classic.

What Inspired Anthony’s Look:
When people think of denim I think most often blue jeans probably come to their minds, so for this outfit I wanted to try something different and wear a colored denim. These khaki jeans with their distressed, worn-in look inspired vintage workwear vibes in my mind. To play that up I paired rugged classics like a railroad stripe buttondown with a plaid lumber-jacket, and a black lace up boot for an outdoorsy masculine feel. And because I love layers and contrast, I quite literally topped it all off with a tailored navy topcoat to add a polished touch to the look.

Winter Layering Basics

Our obsession with the Blanket Scarf continues. But really, can you blame us? Our girl Courtney, the blogger behind Color Me Courtney shows us how she does winter layering with a few basics accented by denim on denim and a bold lip. It’s safe to say, we’re in love.

Meet Courtney:

Winter Layering BasicsWinter Layering BasicsWhat inspired Courtney’s Look:
A little blue goes a long way, but what about a lot of blue? Well that has to go some place awesome! I was so inspired by the dual blues in this blanket scarf, that I decided to dive headfirst into denim on denim.

Everyone loves a good blanket scarf, especially one that can keep you warm and toasty, while still looking cool. A white blanket scarf breathes new life into this trend by giving it a refreshing new twist. A white blanket scarf like this can carry you all the way through the last bit of winter when paired with double denim, a navy coat, or even a little blue dress and over-the-knee boots for a dressier look!

#AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Western Shirt

The western-inspired trend is one we’re really excited about this season. We took our iconic button down and gave it a western flair with a straight point collar, chest patch pockets and barrel cuffs.

What Inspired Olia’s Look:
I love being able to wear a plaid shirt year round. I typically size up for an oversized look and love to do a half tuck in the front into denim or a pair of cargo pants like this one. Keeps the look cute yet still casual and sophisticated.

AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: Destroyed Denim

We have the best destroyed denim to break into a new year. Each pair has been carefully deconstructed and reconstructed to give you the perfect broken in look. With 23 fits and 117 washes, we know you’ll find the perfect style to help create memories that last.

Style Blogger Sara Libby shows us how she styles her favorite pair of destroyed jeggings below.

What Inspired Sara’s Look:
Now I don’t know about you, but I tend to wear the same pair of denim until they absolutely fall apart because I dread going “jean’s shopping.” While my stature is petite, I have muscular thighs and calves. I am learning to appreciate my curves, but have a tough time finding jeans with the best balance of stretch, comfort and fit. Recently, I’ve discovered and fallen in love with American Eagle’s denim, especially their jeggings. They are available in different waistlines, washes, and lengths while maintaining the most wearable stretch and control. Ah, I can’t rave about them enough. I’ve collected a few of the different denim shades and explored their high-waisted options.

The lighter wash is extremely versatile and I adore the distressed accents to add some edge to your look. They are great for a casual day shopping, stylish for a lunch date with your gal pals, yet relaxed enough to wear for a road trip. Jeans are a necessity for these winter months ahead and look amazing paired with boots and a shaggy knit jacket!

7 things we love to bring in 2015

20141229_7_THINGS

 { Image Source: 1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 7. | }

Happy new year! Our 2015 is off to an awesome start and we hope yours is, too. These are some of our favorite things to kick off the year. How are you heading into 2015?

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: INTO THE WOODS
Whether or not you know or have ever seen the show, this movie is a must see. The all-star cast (led by Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine and Meryl Streep) take you through some of the most well-known fairytales (including Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella)… but, as you’ll soon find out, everything is not as it seems. As Cinderella’s Prince, Pine’s rendition of Agony (sung with Rapunzel’s Prince, Billy Magnussen) is especially hilarious.

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: BORNS
We can’t get enough as of late with this Michigan born and bred (but now LA dwelling) singer, whose blend of folk, glam and electro rock makes us feel like we’re living inside a dream. (In the best way possible, of course.) Make sure to download his EP, Candy.

WHAT WE’RE READING: BLOGLOVIN’
Need a way to keep all your blogs under one online roof? Bloglovin’ is SO the way to go. This blog reader organizes every post into a feed that you can scroll through all together or break up by individual blog, making it super easy to read all your favorite sites at a glance. (Plus it’s such an easy way to follow both this blog and our Tumblr, meaning you’ll never miss out on anything happening right here at AEO.)

WHERE WE’RE GOING: LOS ANGELES
The City of Angels is calling our name right now (probably because as we type this it’s only 17 degrees outside at our Pittsburgh home office headquarters). But in all fairness, L.A. has tons of awesome stuff to do and see. Catch a game or a concert at the Staples Center, go shopping on Abbot Kinney in Venice, stroll along the pier in Santa Monica, catch the waves in Malibu, be super touristy and go to Graumann’s Chinese Theater and the Hollywood Walk of Fame… there’s something for everyone (and tons of neighborhoods to explore).

WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: HYPERLAPSE
In a word? O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D. Turn all of your videos into a work of art with this app, which make it so easy to create time lapse videos (and to upload them to Instagram). Truth be told, we’re pretty much spending all our free time making them.

WHAT WE’RE EATING/DRINKING: DETOX SMOOTHIES
Whether your NYE was full of debauchery or you just hit the cookies a little too hard over the holidays, there’s no time like the present to do a little detoxing. And what better (and more delicious) way to do that than with a detox smoothie? We’re especially loving the idea of a blueberry and avocado smoothie. Just blend it with a banana, cucumber, spinach and coconut water and voila: instant refreshment (and good for your body antioxidants to boot).

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: DESTROYED JEANS
Really want to break into 2015? You need a new pair of destroyed jeans. Ripped, repaired, mended, stitched, faded, distressed, patched… the more destroyed your jeans are this year, the better.
