Oh American Eagle – you hold such a soft spot in my heart! I’m 32 years old, and AE jeans were the first “trendy” pair of jeans I ever bought with my own money. Their price point has always been amazing, especially considering the high quality product that they offer.
The American Eagle Hi-Rise Jegging in Inky Dark are, hands down, the softest pair of jeans I own. Granted, I don’t own as many as some of the other reviewers, since I’m still new to the game, but I have over 10 pairs of jeans, and these are incredible. Not even my husband, who has easily over 50 pairs of jeans has a pair that feel like these. American Eagle Outfitters describes them as “soft stretch cotton denim” with a “legging like fit”. Really, it’s hard to say much more.
As the name states – these are “high rise” denim. As seen here, the model looks fantastic in them. I, however, am not super tall and thin, so I would never normally wear this style, but honestly, they’re really flattering. I could never pair them with a crop top, or a form-fitting shirt, but a blouse similar to the one I’m wearing in these photos is perfect. They are fitted all the way down to the ankle, so you can pair them with just about anything – ballerina flats, pumps, boots – you name it, they’ll all look great! My denimology sister, Lana, also reviewed a similar fit. You should check out her review to see how different body types and styles , alike, rock these jeans!
Some of the reviews on the AEO website mention that they stretch out by the end of the day. I didn’t have the same experience, nor did I have to constantly pull them up. The dark wash does transfer to your hands the first few times you wear them, and you need to be careful not to sit on any light colored fabrics because these do bleed. For the price and the quality, I can’t think of one reason why every woman shouldn’t have a few pairs of these jeans in their closet. Go to your nearest mall, or purchase them here!
