Review: AE Skinny Jean (available in 8 colors)

Pin It
Pastel colored jeans are a big hit this Spring. I own one pair of hot pink jeans and am dying to add some yellow/mint/salmon jeans to my wardrobe. I've always thought pastels were beautiful colors and you basically can match them with anything. I saw these skinny jeans a few weeks ago at American Eagle and fell in love with the pale yellow color.

What I am wearing:
Denim: AE skinny jeans in yellow zest - size 00R
Chambray shirt: Hollister *old* (buy similar)
Belt: H&M (buy similar)
Clutch: Zara leather clutch (buy similar)
Sandals: Target Tawny wedges
Watch: Michael Kors 5128 in rose gold

I have been a fan of American Eagle denim for years, although I don't wear jeans very often. When it comes to sizes, what I love most about American Eagle is that their jeans are dead-on accurate. For skinny jeans, I typically wear a 00S and for straight jeans, I am generally a 00R. My store didn't have my regular size 00S, I walked away with a 00R. The 00 short is also sold out online. I've stalking the site for several weeks and they haven't been back in stock yet. At this point, I am going to keep the 00R have them hemmed.

What I love about these denim is the fit. They fit me everywhere except the length. If I can find a 00S, these jeans would be perfect. There is no waist gap at all. I also love the thick material. I do not like light-weight jeans. The material feels very durable, yet very soft when I first tried them on. They also did not shrink too much after washed. Overall, these jeans fit very comfortably. Measurements for a size 00R (laying flat): Waist = 12.5" and length = 33"

If you’re looking for new denim, pick up some of these colorful options and you will fit right in this season. Colored denim also works well with color-blocking - this seasons’s other big trend. They're available in 8 colors so there's certainly something for everyone. American Eagle offers free shipping on your entire order with no minimum purchase required (code 73892041 - ends tonight)

Readers, are you into the pastel trend this season?


Really Petite

I like the pale yellow- much more versatile. You look great in them:)

easy petite looks

i love the fit of these on you!! the pockets are perfectly placed, imo. and yellow and blue are always perfect together. I havent tried AE jeans since i was young, but i should really stop in sometime and give them a try


These look great on you Sydney! I think I'm going to get a pair of the Teaberry Pink ones. These look like they would fit me better than the jeggings. I ordered a pair of the AE jeggings in a 0R and could barely get them up past my thighs for some reason.

Your new bob hairstyle is edgy while still being cute. Also, Sydney... this is a very nice look for you. Good combination of this color jeans along with the chambray shirt. Nice sandals as well.


Omg Sydney! When did you get your new haircut?!! I love it...very Victoria Beckham!!! I love your chambray shirt too, so great.....I'd run out to buy it right now if I didn't already have four denim/chambray shirts hanging in my closet already! Lol (I may be addicted ;)


Those jeans fit you so well and loving your shirt hair!


That yellow is so beautiful on you and fit is perfect. I'm looking for colored jeans, your post motivate me more!


That is such a gorgeous shade of yellow! I've been looking at coral and mint jeans but am trying to limit spending while on maternity leave :)


The color of the jeans is very pretty!

Those yellow jeans look great on you! I also love the fit of AE jeans as well as their shorts!

Wish I could pull it off but not for my body type. You look great tho. Hair pulled back?

With Each Passing Day

Those yellow AE jean looks amazing on you. Pretty color for spring.


@Lisa Ng, @Callandra I cut my hair a few weeks ago =)


I read your post this morning and ran out to buy the yellow jeans. They fit beautifully! I am a size 26 waist and the size 2's were perfect. The 33" length is long but when you fold them under, they are absolutely fine. I like them so much that I am having another store hold the rose colored ones for me and will pick them up tonight. I never even considered buying anything from AE but the jeans look and feel beautiful. Thanks for the tip (and your hair is fab).


I should check their jeans, last time I purchased a pair from them was in college! I been loving all the fun colored jeans this spring!


@Anonymous I am glad these jeans worked out for you. I am thinking about keeping the original hem too. I can either fold them under or roll them up for a casual look =)

@PetiteLittleGirl I thought you pulled it back too! I saw the post on the haircut. Very chic.


LOVE the yellow jeans on you! Hmmm I like this color better than the Gap ones that I tried on, I may give these a try. Thanks for the review!


Nice outfit! It's perfect for the season. I've actually been stalking the AE website for the light pink color. I saw my size in stock one day about three weeks ago but hesitated. Waited a day or two and went back and it was sold out :(
