As part of our AExME creator spotlight video series we teamed up with YouTube vlogger Liya (LoveFromLiyax) for an American Eagle try on haul and asked her to share her fave looks & dorm décor items to hit refresh on the fall semester. The result? Looks she loves and we know you’ll love too!
LIYA’S FAVORITE JEANS:
One of Liya’s favorite things that came in her try on haul was our Ne(X)t Level jeggings. Our signature Ne(X)t Level technology offers up the right amount of stretch so you can move any way you want and don’t have to worry about them bagging out or feeling loose halfway through the day. Liya picked the high-waisted jegging and super high-waisted jegging—both designed to provide plenty of coverage and feel comfortable! These fits are perfect for any event and every day—a real go-to for back to school, fall and winter looks.
The high-waisted fit sits at the right point for comfort and coverage, and the super high-waist sits a little higher just below the natural waist for a more covered feel. Both make sure you look good and more importantly FEEL GOOD about your outfit of the day. Another faves of Liya’s is the light wash mom jean. Cut in a classic throwback design that’s reminiscent of the 80s and 90s, these jeans are almost too cool to be true, and look great with a graphic tee or crop top. These jeans are also a little high-waisted so you have a comfy and relaxed fit. Need a little more mom jean inspiration before you try this fit out? Check out our mom jeans assortment.
TOPS SHE LOVES:
What’s a good pair of jeans without the perfect top to wear it with? Not much! Liya’s picks are perfect for going out or going to class. The first pick is a Kodak graphic tee from our Tailgate line that serves up a throwback vibe with bright yellow and red colors. Wear it loose and baggy or tie it up, either way this shirt will have you serving looks this semester.
Need another style that can be worn at school and for anything after? Her choice of the off the shoulder top is juuuust right for both events. A lace design means you have cover exactly where you need it, but the off shoulder cut is still cute and fun for parties or going out. Liya’s last top pick is a striped crop top! We love this look for fall and spring, and if you need a little more warmth just throw on a cardigan and you’re good to go.
HER FAVORITE ACCESSORIES & DORM DÉCOR:
One of Liya’s other fave items she didn’t even know we carried? Dorm décor! We’re well known for our jeans and flannels when things cool down this time of year, but with our AEO APT collection you can make your dorm or apartment as cozy as your favorite top, and AEO APT also makes for perfect gifts! No need for tired blankets and the same old wall art. We create everything you need to make your apartment or dorm a little more you, and also partner with Dormify to make super cute bed spreads and pillows, too. But the party doesn’t stop there. We also got you covered with tech gadgets, kitchen décor, desk accessories & party supplies so you can hit all the right notes this term.
Liya chose a few staples we love to get through fall semester and power through to spring: a shower speaker, cute tortoise hoop earrings, and a tapestry designed with a soft, feminine look and a cool iridescent vibe.
