Denim X by American Eagle
The high-waist trend is definitely here to stay, and American Eagle Outfitters has helped perpetuate it with their Sky High Jegging, along with their usual High Rise Jegging. I thought it was going to be a mostly summer trend, but along with this one, several brands are proudly keeping the high risers in their upcoming fall lines. I’m still kind of letting it grow on me, as I like a variety of high rise, mid rise, and low rise jeans in my closet to fit whatever outfit or style mood I might be in. Apart from the high rise trend, however, I mostly admire the shape retention, super stretch trend! I don’t even know if I can call it a trend though, since it just seems so common sense to me for the world of denim. I know there are a lot of fans of the 100% raw denim out there, but I like my stretchiness!
American Eagle Outfitters released a line called Denim X this year, which features their jeggings of the higher-rise kind, in an INVISTA Lycra blend of fabric that will hold its shape, stretch to fit your curves but never bag or sag.
Garments made with LYCRA® fiber can stretch, but more importantly they have excellent recovery performance so that garments can keep their shape. Designers around the world are using LYCRA® fiber, allowing people to wear stylish garments that last. Today, consumers look for fashion & stylish apparel, but they also expect comfort and durability. Garments made with LYCRA® fiber are comfortable, durable and keep their fit.” – INVISTA Lycra
The Sky-High Jegging is AEO’s “best fit ever. Revolutionary high performance stretch that’s softer than ever before. Never loses its shape… so you can show off your assets all day (and night).” I will have chance to review a pair of these Denim X Sky High Jeggings for Denimology soon, so stay tuned!! I have a special soft spot in my heart for AEO…their jeans are such a great quality at such a great price! I’m always impressed with what they release, so I’m pretty excited to try these out.
