So, I wanted to start a favorite store series. American Eagle is probably perfect to start out with since the majority of my clothes are from here...
First, there literally isn't a thing you can't find in that store. AE has it all: tops, bottoms, skirts, dresses, jackets, shoes, jewelry, belts, undergarments..I could go on for ages! I think I own at least one thing from every possibly category at that store (or at least I did). My friends still joke with me about one day in middle school when we were comparing where we bought our clothes that we had on. I kid you not, except for my socks, everything else was from American Eagle and my friends got such a kick out of it. (And as I write this now, I'm all decked out in AE once again...)
Let's talk their top selection. When I first was introduced to AE, I was not too crazy about their shirts. I always felt like their tops and dresses were always hit or miss. But as I find my own fashion sense and find a happy medium with things and learn what shapes look best to flatter my figure, their tops are becoming one of my staples. AE recently came out with a new range of shirts (which the name escapes me right now..it's along the lines of soft & sexy, maybe... or maybe they just did a new look with their basics, who knows...) and oh my do I love them! Definitely one of the softest shirts I own and like basics do, they can be fancied up or dressed down. Soft and practical? What more can you want..?
Their cardigans and jackets are just to die for! AE is where it's at for oversized cardigans. And the cardigans are in many styles and textures and there are so many color options I go a bit crazy when it's the end of fall..
I can't forget to mention their pants! This is what made me fall in love with this store. I just find that their jeans fit so perfectly, and they can be so stretchy and it's no wonder why I prefer my jeans over anything else. There is also a huge selection between the kind of fit and the wash (I prefer anything that includes "stretch", "extra stretch", and their favorite boyfriend jeans are my absolute favorite! Don't get me started on how much I love their jeggings...)
Skirts and dresses are something I'm still testing out. I know the skater style looks best and I can't believe how many different dresses and skirts are in that style. Of course that's not all that they offer, but it's what I look for.
And I cant leave out all the other wonderful bits! The jewelry is always so cute! I have a ring from here that I got about 9ish years ago and there isn't a day that goes by where I'm not wearing it. I also love their necklaces and earrings! AE's shoes are always adorable! I love their flip flops so much that I end up wearing them out within a year, so that't my one little warning. Basically, the accessories are awesome! I could also go on about Aerie, but that could be another post to talk about that magical place...
What is your favorite kind of item to get at AE?
