American Eagle jeans are not new to me but I went about 6 years without wearing them. I tried them again this year and thought I would share all my thoughts, good and bad, with you!
When you think American Eagle, what do you picture? I picture high school awkward trying to fit in me. Every chance I could get, I would buy a shirt or pair of jeans from the clearance rack with the bit of income I had from being a janitor or babysitting. I fell in love with the brand early on.
At one point, I stopped wearing American Eagle jeans. I think I was trying to find my own style and attributed their jeans with high school. If you know any part of my story from high school, those are years I don’t like thinking about….at all.
Fast forward to 3 months ago, I bought a pair of American Eagle jeans again! I was on the hunt for flattering high waisted skinny jeans that didn’t gap at my ankles. If you have muscular calves like I do, you know what I’m talking about. Where the pant leg has been stretched so far to fit over your calf that it is now huge over your ankle.
I bought two pairs of the high waisted jegging from American Eagle. Ladies, I will NEVER go back.
A. They are comfortable, literally feel like pajamas.
B. The high waist is SO flattering.
D. SO MANY OPTIONS.
E. They actually come in around my ankles!!!
F. They don’t look or feel like jeggings, they have real pockets!
One of the biggest reasons why I love them is that they meet my needs without being overpriced. I will find great jeans but boy do I hurt laying down a lot of money on them. American Eagle always has sales, especially on their jeans. This style is typically found online only, I rarely have seen it in the store.
Moral of the story: if you are looking for a high waisted jean that is flattering and budget-friendly, try the high waisted jegging from American Eagle.
