3 Ways to Style Mom Jeans

Take inspo from your mom’s tried-and-true, old-school denim look with your own pair of Mom jeans. With a comfy high rise and a relaxed fit that hits right above the ankle, they’re not like regular jeans. They’re cool jeans.

Go for the OG Mom jean with the classic fit you already know, or try the Curvy Mom jean for more room through the hips and thighs. The Relaxed Mom jean offers a more laid-back fit that’s slightly looser than the original, and the highest waist Mom jean takes your jeans to new heights with our highest rise.

With tons of stretch and rigid options to choose from, Mom jeans are all about elevating your throwback look with some key elements. ‘Cause sometimes mom does know best. Read on for tips on how to style your Mom jeans this winter! 

AE Mom Jeans

Colorblock Vibes Only

Build your outfit around a couple simple pieces to keep your look uncluttered and true to you. Pair a cropped fleece sweatshirt with Mom jeans and sneakers for an easy vibe. Plus, Mom jeans are made with a comfy high-waisted fit, so they work great with your fave crop tops.

Add Some Edge

What’s really in this season? Jeans with big holes, mega destruction, and frayed details. Ripped jeans add some edge to your ’90s-inspired vibes, and are a good way to try something new. Wear them with a basic tank and cropped corduroy shirt for a look that’s just right for your next concert or chill sesh with friends.

Keep It Simple

Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. Keep your look casual and comfy with a henley sweater and Mom jeans with subtle destruction. To show off your wild side, tuck in your shirt and wear an animal-print belt.

GIVE. LOVE. JOY. THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO WHITE ELEPHANT GIFTS

It’s time to talk about the White Elephant in the room. Whether you call it a Yankee Swap, Thieving Elves, or another merry moniker, you’re probably participating in some riff on this classic holiday gift exchange this year.

A White Elephant gift exchange requires everyone participating (friends, teammates, coworkers, etc.) to contribute an anonymously-wrapped, universally-appealing gift to the party. Everyone draws a number and then chooses a gift at their turn, with later giftees having the option to steal items that have already been unwrapped. Rules vary, but the result is almost always a mildly rowdy, hilariously competitive exchange that ends in someone loudly boasting over nabbing the best gift.

Whether you’re playing with your coworkers, cousins, or even best friends, it’s always a struggle to settle on a gift that’ll spark some spirited swapping from everyone involved. This year, we put together a few guaranteed crowd-pleasers to make sure you win that White Elephant, one way or another.

AE Gift Guide

Go for practical.

Whether you’re gifting for the guys or your best girls, everyone can always use an extra hat or scarf – luxe faux fur details, cozy textures, and chunky knits all up the wow factor. For something a little more unexpected but just as useful, pick up a water bottle they’ll use daily and fill it with candy, or slip a fun surprise (like, say, a $5 AE gift card) in the front of a fanny pack that’ll make them giggle at first… then become something they’ll never leave home without.

AE Gift Guide

Keep it light.

Gift-giving can be serious business, with a lot of pressure to get it right. Sometimes it’s nice to just wrap up something FUN. Our gift guide is filled with toys, tech, and pop culture icons guaranteed to spark a heated swap. Grab a board game everyone can play together, a cheeky holiday-themed self-care kit, or a conversation-starting gadget. After all, who WOULDN’T want to take home a talking Bob Ross keychain?

AE Gift Guide

Give the gift of chill.

Share your favorite items from our Mood collection, or pick and choose a few essentials to create a personalized gift package that everyone will want. Because let’s be real, we could all use a little extra chill during the holidays.

GIVE.LOVE.JOY. THIS YEAR’S BEST GIFTS FOR HIM

It’s no secret that guys are generally pretty hard to shop for, no matter what their style or interests are. Whether you’re looking for something special for a new boyfriend, an old buddy or your little brother, we’re here to take some of the guesswork out of giving him what he really wants.

 

Start with the classics.

Socks. Underwear. PJ pants. Beanies. He always needs them, and with winter coming on strong, practical makes perfect. Look for quirky prints, bold graphics, and chunky knits in standout colors. Mix and match his favorite shades and patterns to put together a personalized care package that will keep him cozy all year long.

AE Men's Gift Guide

Upgrade his essentials.

There’s no such thing as too many hoodies, especially when we’re talking about buffalo plaid knits, performance fleece, and colorblocked Sherpa. Take his gameday look to the next level with vintage-inspired graphics from the Tailgate collection, or level up his layering game with supremely soft flannel shirts and must-have graphic tees in unexpected hues.

AE Men's Gift Guide

Go all out(erwear).

Cross everything off his wishlist with cold-weather gear he doesn’t just want, but needs. We’re talking everything from trapper hats and gloves to classic plaid topcoats and the latest performance-inspired puffers. Put together a matching set of a Sherpa jacket and reversible neck warmer he probably wouldn’t buy for himself but will totally love.

GIVE.LOVE.JOY. THIS YEAR’S BEST GIFTS FOR HER

So you’ve made your list, you’ve checked it twice… but, as much as you love the ladies on it, you just don’t know where to start.

Sound familiar?

Gifting is hard! Especially during the holidays when there’s so much pressure to get it right. Trust us, you are not alone. Whether you’re shopping for your sister, girlfriend, or roommate… you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to give you everything you need to know to give HER exactly what she wants.

 

Give her something that feels good.

Real talk. No matter who she is or what she’s into, she’s going to want something that makes her feel good. Sometimes, that’s as simple as an Ahh-mazingly Soft sweatshirt in her favorite color, or an easy Plush tee you know she’ll wear with everything.

AE Women's Gift Guide

Texture and feel also happen to factor into some of this season’s biggest trends, so keep an eye out for faux Sherpa, super-soft flannel, luxe chenille, corduroy, and faux fur. Wanna make it personal? Mix and match your own curated gift set of Sherpa accessories, buffalo plaid statement pieces, and anything else soft and cozy you think you’ll love snuggling up with!

 

Give her something she needs.

Socks and sweaters get a bad rap around the holidays (no pun intended). We’re here to remind you that “practical” doesn’t have to mean “boring.” Quirky prints and unexpected details can quickly take a gift from so-so to SO GOOD.

AE Women's Sweaters

She’s going to need to keep her feet warm for the next foreseeable future, so give her some socks and, dare we say it?, Statement Slippers, that she has fun slipping on. When it comes to sweaters, think outside the (gift) box. Sweater leggings, sweater dresses… give her a few options to keep cozy AND on-trend against that winter chill.

 

Give her something she wants.

You think she wants jeans. No, you know she wants jeans. But which jeans to give her?

AE Women's Jeans

This year, we’re making it super-easy to give her exactly what she wants, jeans or otherwise. Don’t worry about guessing her size, getting her address wrong, or picking a color or style she doesn’t like. Send your gift instantly using GiftNow®, and give her the option of adjusting or even exchanging her gift… before it ships.
