American Eagle High Rise Jeggings Denim Review
I’m back with another review! This time on the American Eagle Skinny High Rise Jeggings! After spending a lot of time in the United States over the past year, I developed a love of American Eagle jeans. They aren’t that popular here as we don’t have any stores, but some of their items are available on ASOS and other places. Going in the stores though and trying on their jeans in person, it changed my mind entirely on the brand! Not only are they affordable, but the fit was something I wasn’t expecting! It turns out that I love them so much, I now own about 8 pairs of the jeggings and about 4 pairs of the mom jeans! Read my review below.
The Sizing – American Eagle jeans run in American dress sizes like 2, 4, 6 etc, and these are size 6. I would say that’s an equivalent to a 28/29. American Eagle itself says it’s around a 27, but I have since lost weight and am wearing size 4 in their jeans and I’d say that was more of a 27. They come in four different lengths too, which is incredible! You have extra short, short, regular, and long. I’m wearing the size 6 in short as I’m only 5ft 4 and have shorter legs. They turned out to be perfect in length, hitting right at my ankles as you can see! For reference, I am a 28 in PAIGE and Citizens of Humanity, and took a 6 in these, if that helps!
The Fit – The High Rise Jegging is a fantastic fit! The rise is really comfortable in height, I’d say it’s just over 10″, so it’s really flattering. They have a comfortable, not too tight waistband, and the room in the hips/thighs is wonderful. They do make a Curve selection too for those with curvier hips and smaller waists, so you really cannot go wrong with American Eagle Jeggings! The back pockets are placed nicely to be flattering on the butt too, with minimal design, just the classic signature stitching.
The Denim – The denim fabric is very thin and stretchy, it’s a cotton, polyester, elastane blend, and it’s incredibly comfortable! They feel like actual leggings, they are that stretchy. You can wear them the entire day and not feel uncomfortable at all. They’re a dream to wear, especially for sitting for longer periods of time. I wouldn’t say the denim is of a super high quality compared to some of the denim I’m used to from premium brands, and the washes aren’t that authentic looking, in comparison, but for the price point, I am completely happy! These are a mid wash blue with fading and whiskering and they look pretty good for their price! I own many different washes in this fit though!
The Details – There aren’t too many details here to shout about, just the leather looking patch on the back of the waist band, the signature logo stitching on the back pockets, and contrast orange stitching on the jeans. Other than that, they’re pretty minimal.
The Price – The usual retail value is around $49.95, however American Eagle always have a sale running, or discount codes, so I didn’t pay more than $35 for them! How amazing is that for a super comfortable, great fitting pair of skinny jeans? You can’t go wrong! The best part is that this pair is on sale right now for $24.97! I can’t recommend them enough for that! I’ve actually rarely been wearing my premium jeans lately, and living in my American Eagle ones!
Overall Opinion – As you can tell in this review, I love American Eagle High Rise Jeggings! They fit perfectly, they’re comfortable, they’re stretchy, they’re more than affordable… Sure the washes aren’t as amazing as some premium pairs, and the denim isn’t as high quality, but the overall fit is better than some of my premium jeans! So that’s funny! For their price though, I cannot recommend them enough! Are you already fans of American Eagle?
