Introducing MOOD

MOOD AnimationMOOD Animation

Meet MOOD, a new wellness collection – exclusively at American Eagle – featuring products made for everyone and infused with CBD extract, which is known for its calming and soothing benefits.

The MOOD collection includes wellness products like bath soaks, body lotions, hand creams, lip salves, aromatherapy oils, and other must-have products designed to help you relax and unwind.

Maybe you’ve already heard of products like CBD oil, lip balm, or lotion, but if this is the first time you’re thinking about trying CBD-infused products, keep scrolling to learn more!




 1. What is CBD?

CBD – short for cannabidiol – is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid derived from hemp and isolated for its beneficial wellness properties.

What it does: works naturally to create a calming effect.

What it won’t do: make you feel “high” or “stoned.”

2. What is CBD Used For?

CBD works naturally to create a calming effect, meaning it’s great for those moments when you want to unwind and enjoy a little “you” time.

 3. Is CBD Legal?

Yes. The 2018 U.S. Farm Bill classifies legal hemp as cannabis containing no more than 0.3% THC, and all MOOD products comply with this regulation.

4. Will CBD alter my mental state?

No, it won’t. Although CBD and THC come from the same cannabis sativa plant, they are two distinct substances. While CBD can have a calming, relaxing effect, it does not produce the “high” associated with THC.



Behind the Seams: What’s New in Jeans

AE Women's Jeans

We want you to feel amazing in American Eagle jeans every time you wear them – which is why we’re working nonstop to create better fabrics, technologies, and fits.

We don’t always talk about what goes on behind the seams (see what we did there?), but our latest jeans innovations are too cool NOT to share! Check out what our designers are excited about, then shop the new jeans collections and try ’em yourself.



Innovating for Comfort, Stretch & Consistency

Jeans have been around for, like, ever – but that doesn’t mean we’re always gonna make them the same way. By pushing forward and embracing new technologies, we make sure our jeans stay cutting-edge cool and comfy.

AE Ripped Jeans


Improving Stretch Jeans

Stretch technology has come a long way. Most jeans used to have NO STRETCH at all, meaning they were made with 100% cotton denim. You can still get non-stretch jeans at AE, but with our amazing fabric technologies like Ne(X)t Level Flex, AirFlex, and Stretch, you can now get that the vintage-inspired denim look without giving up high-stretch comfort.


Making Better Ripped Jeans

There’s nothing better than a great pair of distressed or ripped jeans. Authentic distressing used to be something designers could achieve ONLY with non-stretch cotton denim. But our designers have introduced incredible, flexible fabrics like Ne(X)t Level Flex and AirFlex, which give you the comfort you’re looking for and hold up against the ripped, destroyed, and mended details you love.

We’re also incorporating laser technology – yes, lasers! – into the production of our ripped jeans. This helps with consistency, making sure that every single pair of jeans has precisely cut holes, rips, and tears.


Creating More Sustainable Jeans

We’re really into figuring out how technology can help us make more sustainable products, which is where lasers come back in. Yes with the lasers again! Believe it or not, using laser technology to fade and distress jeans helps us create more eco-friendly washes by helping us cut back on the water required to get your AE jeans’ washes just right.

And, because we care about the planet and YOU, we’re testing new chemicals and treatments that are better for the environment. We’ve shared some of our sustainability goals and initiatives on this blog before, and we’ll continue to keep you posted on our progress. This is just the beginning.


Leading the Way with #Trending Styles

How boring would it be to wear the same jeans every day? Our designers feel the same way. Which is why they’re always dreaming up new styles that are destined for your closet. Here are just a few of their recent creations we can’t get enough of!

AE Men's Jeans

For Guys

If you’re a guy who works out, you should give Athletic Fit jeans a try. They’re designed with more room through the seat and thigh – perfect for guys with more muscular legs. Other new styles you should give a shot? The Dad jean for a laid-back, tapered fit, and the Stacked Skinny jean, made with a longer inseam for an on-trend stacked look.

AE Men's Jeans

Our designers are also excited for you to try AE’s latest destroyed jeans. With bold destruction like shredded hems, blown-out knees, contrast mending, big rips, and dramatic tears, AE’s ripped jeans are getting better and better.

AE Women's Jeans

For Girls

Mom jeans and high-waisted jeans are modern classics. But our designers are all about the fresh details, so they’ve gone ahead and added pleats, paperbag waists, and ripped knees for a very “now” spin, plus designed them in every wash they could think of. They’ve also upped the game with unexpected colors and patterns, including plaids, stripes, and even animal print.

AE Women's Jeans

And how could we not mention the genius innovation that is Curvy jeans? Designed with more room through the hips and thighs, these jeans will help you say goodbye forever to waistband gapping and sizing up.

Fall Faves: Sweaters & Fleece Hoodies

You know what time it is – the best time of the year. It’s the season of pumpkin-flavored everything, falling leaves, and breaking out all your favorite cold-weather sweaters and fleece hoodies. These fall staples give you tons of options for changing up your style and keeping cozy when temps drop.



Sweater Weather = Better Weather

Pullover sweaters are a dream come true this time of year, whether you’re picking apples, exploring a corn maze, or just walking home from class on a chilly day. With lightweight and heavier knit options, plus fits including cropped, oversized, and boxy, there’s a sweater for every outfit.

AE Pullover Sweaters

Go for a classic crewneck sweater in an anything-but-ordinary animal print, or go old-school in a cropped v-neck with a retro-collegiate vibe. Love henleys but want something warmer? A pullover henley sweater has that casual vibe of your fave tee, in a chunky knit that keeps you toasty as an autumn bonfire.


Classic Cardigans

For all those on-the-go moments when you need an extra layer, keep a cardigan sweater handy. Cardigans – in styles like button front, open front, oversized, and cropped – are MADE for layering over other women’s tops already in your closet, including those tanks and tees you’ve been wearing all summer long. For the ultimate fall vibe, wear an open front cardigan over a graphic tee with high-waisted jeans, or pair a long cardigan with an oversized t-shirt and leggings for a look that takes you from the library to a weekend hayride.


Fleece Fever

Fleece sweatshirts and hoodies keep you ready for everything this season has to offer. Hitting up a haunted house? Wear fleece. Going to a fall festival? Fleece is the answer. Fleece is the answer. Taking a hike to take in the changing leaves? You guessed it: a soft fleece pullover will keep you comfy.

AE Sweatshirts

With fits including slouchy and cropped, you can style your fleece up or down. Wear an oversized sweatshirt with high-waisted jeans to keep the relaxed vibes going, or pair a fleece pullover with overalls for a throwback-inspired look.

The Best Jeans to Wear with Fall Footwear

One of the best parts about transitioning to your fall wardrobe? The shoes! Retire your flip flops and sandals to the back of the closet until next spring, and swap them out for cooler-weather classics like boots and sneakers to wear with your fave American Eagle jeans.

Wondering which jeans go best with your new fall footwear? No worries. We’ve got you covered with this jean + shoe guide.



For Guys: What to Wear with Slim, Skinny & Stacked Jeans

Slim Jeans + Chunky Sneakers

Lean and clean but not quite skinny, slim jeans are juuuuust right for chunkier shoes that balance them out, like sneaker boots or sporty sneakers with a bigger, chunky outsole.

Skinny Jeans + Sleek Sneakers

Our best-selling skinny jeans – not tight, just right! – serve up serious style with minimally styled sneakers featuring a sleeker profile. Choose ripped skinny jeans for an elevated rugged look, or go for a medium wash for that iconic blue jeans style.

Stacked Skinny Jeans + Bright Sneakers

Stacked skinny jeans use a trend-forward stacked effect at the ankle to draw attention to your shoes, a.k.a. they’re amazing at showing off sneakers made to pop. Match your stacked jeans with brightly colored shoes to stand out from the crowd.

For Girls: What to Wear with Ripped, High-Waisted & Curvy Jeans

 Ripped Jeans + Your Fave Boots

Ripped jeans like jeggings and Tomgirl jeans might feel like summer styles – but wear them with black booties or plaid sneakers and they’re ready for falling leaves, sweater weather, and cooler temps. Emphasize your shoes by cuffing your jeans or choosing a cropped length.

High-Waisted Jeans + Statement Heels

High-waisted jeggings and highest waist flare jeans give you that comfy high-rise fit you love, and serve up major style with of-the-moment snakeskin heels. Try them with other patterned shoes in prints like leopard, houndstooth, and plaid to make a statement all season long.

Curvy Jeans + Fall-Forward Footwear

Still searching for jeans to wear with your fall shoes? Give Curvy jeans a try! Designed with more room through the hips and thighs, these jeans eliminate waistband gapping and hug all your curves. Try Curvy jeans with a split hem to draw focus down to your classic Chelsea booties. These boots are made for walking, and the jeans are made for making your butt look (and feel) incredible.
