NEW! AERIE BODY

Good stuff for the REAL you. Loaded with good ingredients and free of the bad stuff, our 5 new fragrances in exfoliating body washes, moisturizing lotions and yummy mists are made to mix and match. We talked with Phuong Ireland, Director of Personal Care and Beauty, for the inside scoop on our sweetest new scents.

NEW! Aerie Body How did the collection come to be?

We’ve heard from our Aerie girls that they want to know what’s in their beauty products… and what’s not. So we’ve developed a line of body care products featuring fun, fresh fragrances that are loaded with skin-loving ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, aloe and vitamin E. And it has none of the bad stuff like parabens, phthalates and gluten. It’s cruelty-free, too, meaning we don’t test on animals.

Which fragrance is your fave?

Be Sunnie – it’s our fresh and energizing fragrance. This is my favorite fragrance because it feels so different from any fragrance I’ve smelled before and is so fresh and clean. It has notes of sparkling Meyer Lemon, pink sea salt, and an ocean breeze accord.

Take us through the steps!

The 5 fragrances are offered in 3 different forms so you have lots to choose from. The products are made to be layered on top of each other for fragrance that lasts all day.

  1. Cleanse with our exfoliating body wash.

This wash is packed with coconut oil, sugarcane and the antioxidant acai, known to help keep skin healthy and moisturized. The luxurious lather cleanses while jojoba beads and natural pumice gently buff and exfoliate skin cells for fresh, glowing, dewy skin. This formula is very gentle, so it can be used every day for cleansing and exfoliation.

  1. Moisturize with our amazing body lotion.

It’s loaded with rich shea butter, which nourishes and heals skin. The formula also contains coconut oil, aloe and vitamin E—a powerful combination of moisture-rich, conditioning ingredients.

  1. Spritz our body mist with aloe.

Our mists are light and fresh, and leave long-lasting scents that aren’t overpowering. They’re infused with conditioning aloe and antioxidant green tea.

You can use the same scent across products to make your fragrance last longer, or mix and match scents to make a customized fragrance all your own. Some of our favorite combinations are the Be Sunnie Lotion with the Be Bright Mist and the Be Chill Mist with the Be Cozy lotion.

Trend Alert! Strappy One-Piece

Pop it like it’s hot! Our Pop Color One-Piece Swimsuit is right on trend with its pop color grommets & trim with a low, strappy lace-up back.

Lauren from Fashionably Lo rocks her fave new swimsuit with confidence and challenges all girls to share what makes them #AerieREAL below!  Trend Alert! Strappy One-Piece

“One of my favorite things about being a blogger is when I get to work with a brand that just gets women. I’m not talking about the types of product they carry or the many colors/patterns they might come in. I’m talking about their mission, their values, their branding, their approach. Aerie is one of those brands that, while yes they have tons of goodies every girl will love, they are also sending it us with a super powerful message: embrace your body, love your body and don’t feel the need or pressure to fit into a mold of what is supposed to be ‘beautiful’.”

“If you do a quick look through the #AERIEREAL hashtag on Instagram or Twitter, you’ll see tons of girls celebrating their unique bodies and empowering others to join them. And that is something I can 100% get behind because let’s be REAL, I, just  like everyone else, have body insecurities. I’ve struggled with them for years but love getting the chance to share with you guys just how silly they are. So, I’m throwing on the most amazing, adorable, sexy, flattering one piece and flaunting MY curves, flaws, etc. because all of that is beautiful. And what’s even more beautiful/sexy/amazing is the confidence to do it!”

Trend Alert! Strappy One-Piece

“When I tried on this plum swimsuit for the first time, I fell in love. Not only did I think the color was bomb.com but I loved the strappy back detail with the bright pop of color. I’ve also been a major fan of one-pieces lately because they’re just easier. You don’t have to worry about the bottoms sliding off when you cannon-ball into the pool and they give me total beach babe vibes. I can’t wait to rock this beauty to the next pool party or beach vacay (coming for you, Florida!).

I challenge all of you lovely, confident, hot, powerful ladies to join me in the #AERIEREAL movement. Whether that means heading to the pool in the skimpiest bikini you own (from Aerie obvi) without doubting yourself or snapping a pic on Insta with the hashtag…up to you. I promise, you will feel SO empowered and honestly, ready to rule the world.”

Real Talk with Dormify

Aerie is breaking the rules of dorm décor with Dormify! This like-minded brand takes a fashion-forward approach to stylin’ small spaces & ONLY offers products they’re obsessed with.

We sat down with Dormify Co-Founder, Amanda Zuckerman, to ask a few questions about one of the newest brands we’re crushing on!

It’s no secret we love Dormify, can you tell our girls a little bit about the brand and how it got started?

When my mom and I were shopping for my freshman dorm room we realized first-hand that creating a space of your own, your first home-away-from-home, was a big deal. The problem, though, was that it was not easy to do so. We had a ton of questions – what exactly do I need for my dorm room? Where can I find it? What is the best way to maximize a small space? Can I decorate my dorm room in a way that is comfortable and affordable? How can I represent my personal style in my dorm decor?

It was during my dorm room shopping experience that the idea for Dormify.com was born: A brand and one-stop shopping destination carrying everything students need to easily and effectively style their small space. It was so important to me to be able to create a space that reflected ME, so we wanted to make sure that we could provide our customers with real ways to create a space that is uniquely theirs as well.

Real Talk with Dormify

How does your style advisor community work?

Our Style Advisor community consists of high school and college-aged tastemakers that act as style consultants and contributors to our content site, a destination for decorating tips, DIYs, and college advice. We love having real girls contribute real world ideas, whether through the content and images they create around their own small spaces or through consulting on product designs and initiatives we’re rolling out. It is so important to us to hear from those using our products and sharing their ideas with our customers too. We also work with our Style Advisors to help them build up their skills in design, social media, writing, and more—so that they take away some awesome experience to put on their resume!

What kind of trends are you seeing this season in dorm must-haves?

This season, muted tones are making a loud statement. The Misty Rose Bandana Print duvet paired with warm grey colors is the epitome of this trend. Another favorite of ours is incorporating texture into your look. For example, with a faux mongolian fur accessory—like a pillow or a rug—you can achieve a look that’s boho, girly, or luxurious, depending on how you style it! And last but not least, multifunctional pieces are SO important in a small space. Right now old school trunks are my favorite. You can create a chic nightstand or coffee table look, while still using the inside for extra storage.

Real Talk with Dormify

We’re so excited to offer Dormify on Aerie.com! Do you have a favorite item from the collection?

So hard to choose just one, but I’m obsessed with the ombre knit throws! And I definitely would’ve had the Reversible Mosaic Duvet Cover in my dorm.

Real Talk with Dormify

What advice would you give to those young entrepreneurs looking to start their own businesses?

Establish your personal brand. Start a blog, an Instagram account, a Twitter page—establish your online presence and talk about things that interest you.

Network. Stay in touch with people you have worked with in order to meet new people, you never know who could be of help to you in the future!

Be prepared. Whether you are at an event, networking, approaching someone in your industry, or finally getting that coffee meeting with someone you admire—do your homework so you are asking smart questions that can push the conversation forward.

Find a mentor. Learning from someone who has more experience than you can help you navigate your way as a young entrepreneur, and help you meet important people.

Stay humble. It is ok to not know everything! Listen to others, learn from them, get advice and opinions. Use what works for you, but do take the opportunity to listen to others.

Thank you, Amanda! Shop Dormify bedding, pillows & more now on Aerie.com. xo
