Back-to-school shopping season is in full swing – whether or not you’re actually hitting the books come fall. Retailers are stepping up to the plate with amazing new styles and deals to nab a whole new fall wardrobe at a great price. Case in point? American Eagle Outfitters has a fantastic BOGO deal happening right now! Buy one pair of jeans or shorts and get a second pair for 50% off.
Jeans are an ideal foundation to build your personal style around. Whether you’re into a relaxed, chill look, live for a sporty lifestyle, or aiming for something feminine and flirty, here are eight awesome ways to style your favorite jeans – working from the bottom up.
Your Style: Laid-Back and Totally Chill
Your Jeans: Women’s Tomgirl
Denim may be the foundation of any outfit, but sometimes you want something a little less restrictive than a typical pair of skinnies. AEO’s Tomgirl jeans hang low on your hips and offer room the whole way down for a relaxed, boyfriend-inspired style. Just because you’re wearing a looser style, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice femininity! Pair your Tomgirl jeans with a distressed sweater to show a flash of skin, and fun wedges to give your legs some extra length.
Your Style: Rugged Rock and Roll
Your Jeans: Men’s AEO Extreme Flex Skinny Jean
Nothing says rock like a pair of skinny jeans. These close cut jeans from American Eagle Outfitters feature a unique wash and distressing to give them a worn-in feeling. They’ll feel worn in too, thanks to AEO’s revolutionary fabrication that moves with you. Finish off the look with a rugged military jacket and messenger bag for a truly renegade outfit.
Your Style: Totally a Trendsetter
Your Jeans: Women’s AEO Denim x Super Hi-Rise Jegging
Low-rise jeans have had to make room for the literal rise of waistlines over the last couple of years. If you want to make a statement, these high-waisted jeggings are the perfect blend of stretchy comfort and structured denim. Show off your style prowess by revealing how high they go – wear ‘em with a cropped top and a kimono or tuck a blouse in for a totally trendsetting look.
Your Style: Classic and Comfortable
Your Jeans: Men’s Original Straight Jean
Sometimes you just want what you know best. AEO’s Original Straight Jeans are stretch-free, for a classic, durable feeling. With a straight cut from the thigh to the ankle, these timeless jeans are made from a soft variety of 100% cotton that’s just waiting to be broken in. Available in a range of washes, they look great with equally classic pieces, like a polo tee in your choice of colorful hues and a rugged leather belt.
Your Style: Preppy and Pretty
Your Jeans: Women’s AEO Sateen X4 Jegging
Colored denim is an easy way to have your jeans make a statement while giving your look a little extra polish. These supremely comfortable stretchy colored jeggings are available in a range of tones to suit your wardrobe. Top your favorite pair off with a textured blouse and delicate layered jewelry to really up the pretty feminine factor.
Your Style: Less is More
Your Jeans: Women’s AEO Denim X4 Shortie
Love to show off a hint of skin? American Eagle Outfitters has plenty of inspiration to show off your best assets, starting with their classic shorts that offer legs for days and plenty of stretch for wherever the warm weather may take you. Finish it off with a dreamy off-the-shoulder top and a convertible bucket bag that goes from purse to backpack in a flash.
Your Style: All American Sporty
Your Jeans: Men’s AEO Flex/4 360 Slim Jean
AEO’s slim jeans for men are so popular, they actually have four different styles based on the hem – from tapered to cropped to straight. The best part is even their slim jeans are still plenty comfortable, thanks to their amazing 4-way stretch fabric that doesn’t lose its shape. If you’re on the go, a pair of jeans with stretch is essential – wear yours with a ball cap and a sporty hoodie that can go with you from the hallways to the locker rooms and beyond.
Your Style: Effortless Everyday
Your Jeans: AEO Denim x Skinny Jean
Want a utility player in your denim wardrobe? Look no further than these simple, straightforward skinnies. Designed to hug your curves with AEO’s signature ‘Skindigo’ fabric, these primarily cotton jeans are soft, stretchy, and work with everything you’ve already got in your wardrobe. But if you are looking for a little inspiration, try them with fall-friendly staples like suede moccasin booties and a breezy, lace-up top.
