This spring, our designers and stylists were inspired by 90s grunge when creating looks for our spring collection. A combination of influences from both culture and fashion – think Nirvana and Seattle inspired plaids – make up the trend we’re calling prep rock.
What is prep rock? Prep rock is a modern take on dressing down a look by adding details that are just a little rough around the edges. Get the rocker vibe with washed shawl cardigans, distressed denim and five-pocket pants.
Andrew, a graphic designer at American Eagle Outfitters, modeled three different takes on the prep rock look for us for a little styling inspiration. Scroll through to shop his looks and show us your prep rock style on Twitter and Instagram with #AEOSTYLE for a chance to see yourself on AE.com.
