#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Relaxed Straight Jeans
I may be too old to go back to school, but I’m definitely not too old to indulge in a little back to school shopping. This year I teamed up with American Eagle to style one of my favorite current denim styles, the relaxed straight fit jean, so read on to learn about my styling inspiration.
Lately I’ve been a fan of baggier jeans for the extra comfort they provide due to extra room in the legs. They kinda have a sporty-street wear feel to them, so I decided to play up the athletic theme with a varsity jacket, a 3/4 sleeve baseball t-shirt, and some running sneakers. I chose the bright orange varsity jacket as my statement piece and kept the shirt and shoes subdued in darker hues for balance. With the jeans, I chose to pinch-roll them at the bottom for a nice tight fit at the ankle. This is a fun styling trick I picked up when wearing looser fitting jeans so you can achieve that slouchy look without getting those frayed hems that come from stepping on your pants. Overall, I’d say this outfit makes a great weekend look for fall or even for the first week of school.Wearing:
