AE IMPOSSIBLY SOFT CABLE KNIT SWEATER

THE SNUGGLE IS REAL

Winter just isn’t winter without sweaters – and if they gave out awards for warmth and coziness, these incredibly soft sweaters would probs win them all. 

 

AE Plaid & Flannel Shirts

FOREVER FLANNEL

It’s safe to say that flannels will never go out of style — especially crazy-soft ones like these. Buttoned up or layered over a graphic thermal, you can’t go wrong with a classic. 

 

AE COLORBLOCK HOODIE

HOODIES ON FLEECE

When you add a hood into the mix? GAME-CHANGER. Consider these fleece-lined graphic hoodies your new go-to for layering or on their own for a softer-than-soft athletic look.

Why choose between style and function?

Achieve both with on-trend, warm-as-heck jackets, coats and soft fleece layers
that complete your look and beat the brrr at the same time.

 

A LOOK BY ITS COVER Spice things up with head-to-toe denim, a faux-fur collar and statement-making pops of leopard print.Top off an athletic look with a warm puffer coat that’s cool enough to hang with your go-to joggers and hoodie. Go for a casual yet pulled together look in a classic military-style jacket, dark wash jeans, bright white kicks and a warm beanie to top it all off.

Behind the scenes in SCOTLAND!

Ok lassies, let’s go to SCOTLAND! Aerie Creative Director, Summer, shared her favorite moments from our holiday photoshoot and great Scot, it was amazing. Looking to plan your own trip? Thistle do nicely to get you started! Read on for Summer’s favorite moments and advice for your own trip.

HOL18_BTS_1

We landed in Edinburgh on a Monday morning and drove right to Marks & Spencer for some staples: crumpets, Tunnocks Tea Cakes and Walkers Shortbread Cookies.

With so many Scottish treats, our 3-hour road trip to the Highlands was a breeze, especially after another FUN-filled stop to The House of Bruar. EVERYTHING SCOTTISH THAT YOUR HEART COULD DESIRE…seriously, this place could be a vacation in and of itself.

Hi from the Highlands!

Finally, we arrived at Aviemore – quite exhausted from all the travel but kept going thanks to dinner at the Old Bridge Inn.

DAY 1 OF PHOTOSHOOT: WE’RE ON A TRAIN, CHOO! CHOO!

Yes, we REALLY rented out a train for the day. Special thanks to Graham Sutherland, a nice gentleman who was our main contact for getting us organized and making sure we had all the views and shots that we needed.

 

Old Evie in all her glory.

The Strathspey Railway is so unique and is surviving purely by volunteers and donations. Donate here and keep the magic going!

46512 “Old Evie” was the steam locomotive we adorned with a giant holiday wreath. For some reason, it was repainted with the number 46464 after repairs. For the real train enthusiast, you can find Old Evie’s 50+ year history here.

Conductor of Aerie photography, Ali.

#AerieREAL model Diddy and trainman, Graham.

 

NEXT UP: SHEAR HAPPINESS

Neil Ross trains Highland shepherds to herd the sheep and FUN FACT—he commands them in Gaelic (with a few swears here and there).

Diddy and the flock.

These are among my favorite shots from the shoot. Anytime we can be outside and include animals in their natural habitats, I’m happy!

We know ewe will love this.

 

DAY 2: WHERE’S SANTA?

Actually found this reindeer farm on Instagram!

All of the reindeer have names and the workers know them all! Our hero on the shoot was named Origami. Coincidentally, one of our models had a cool origami tattoo on her hip!

One of our favorite lads from the shoot.

Videographer, Chris, and his new special friend.

 

NEXT UP: JUST YOUR AVERAGE CASTLE

It was huge. Huge library. Still used by the family. Stocking retreat… so much history. I wish we had more time. There were something like 35 bedrooms?!!?!

Majestic!

HOL18_BTS_11

Erin fits right in.

 

HUGE DISCLAIMER

If you have plans to visit the Highlands and do any bit of hiking with or without reindeer, you need this: A MIDGE PROOF HEAD NET!!!!!!!!!! Might we suggest this stylish choice.

What is a midge you might ask? In short, they are very tiny flies or gnats that will ruin your trip/life if you have to be constantly eating them or swatting them out of your eyes, nose, ears and mouth.

Midge proof head nets. Stylist approved!

After this day, we needed a great meal so we had CLASSIC fish & chips.

Then Erin and I tried our first bit of haggis. We loved it! Look up what it is, if you dare!!!

 

DAY 3: SPUD THE PIPER!

Proud to say I also found this gem of a man on the good ol’ Instagram while searching geotags near our locations. He followed me immediately after I followed him. He will most likely do the same for you.

We love Spud.

How To: Using Your Aerie BFF (Best Fit Finder)

Find your new feel-good bra with the BFF (Best Fit Finder): our Aerie-exclusive way to measure your bra size. Watch Iskra show you how to use it, or follow the steps below. All that matters? Finding the bra that feels best!

Before you start, make sure you’re in a lightly lined bra and a tight top, bodysuit or no top. No push up bras or bulky sweaters for this!

Step 1: Find your band size.

Use “This side first!” on the BFF.  Wrap it around just under your bust, making sure the top of the tape is aligned with the bottom of your bra band.

Step 2: Find your cup size.

Use “This side second!” on the BFF. Wrap this side around the fullest part of your bust, and line up the bottom of the tape with the top of your bra band. In the column where the edge of the tape lands, look for the band size you measured in Step 1. The letter next to it is your cup size, and that’s it! You have your Aerie bra size.

Step 3: Find your sister size.

The BFF also gives you your sister size, aka another size you can try to see if it feels good. To find your sister size, check out the color-coded diagonal boxes extending off of the original size you measured. You can try these sizes for a similar fit to the one that you measured.

Get your BFF here. Need a little extra help? Visit us in stores for a custom, free fitting any time.
