Flex Denim Is The MOVE This Winter

Happy Friday guys! Today on the blog we’re talking denim, but not just any denim – American Eagle’s flex denim which features stretchable, flexible fabric for THE ultimate comfort to suit your movement.  I had the chance to test drive and style three of their signature flex denim fits and put my own personal spin on some popular winter trends.  Have a look at how I styled my denim below and believe me when I tell you these flex jeans are the move this winter!



Winter White – featuring American Eagle Skinny Core Flex

This past summer the all-white “painter” look was a big trend that I was definitely a fan of so for this outfit I wanted to do my version of that trend for winter.  Personally, I love to wear white all year round and although white denim might not feel intuitively wintery it definitely works if you wear it right.  I layered shades of white and off-white in different textures to add visual interest to this monochromatic outfit.  The end result is a minimal but sophisticated winter outfit.

Unfinished Business – featuring American Eagle Slim Core Flex

When it comes to my personal style one of the things I love to do is blend casual and dressy and break down tailored pieces.  Instead of your classic lightwash jeans, why not wear a pair that’s distressed?  Instead of a typical tailored topcoat, why not go for one that’s oversized? I love juxtaposing styles like this and little details like frayed hems, double zippers, and distressed washes have a really cool, edgy feel.

Après Ski – featuring American Eagle Slim Straight Flex

Somewhere between the chairlift and the fireplace is Après Ski and just because you’re not in Aspen doesn’t mean you can’t flex your slope-side style. Starting with a solid foundation of classic blue denim, I layered cozy knits and plaids for a wintry ski lodge feel. It’s all about casual warmth and comfort so I stuck with pieces that are easy to slip into after a long day on the slopes. I skipped the beanie in favor of a more trendy fedora to add a touch of personality to my look.
