How To Make A Reverse French Braid

We’re always looking for a quick and simple hair DIY for the weekend! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we’re opting for a reverse french braid.  We asked our studio hair stylist, Julie M. to give us the inside scoop. Follow her tips below to learn how to style a reverse french braid like a pro in no time!

Step 1: Untangle any knots to make braiding easier.

Step 2: Divide a section on top of your head into 3 equal strands.  You can start at the very top or if you have bangs or front pieces you want out, start a little further back leaving those out. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 3: To establish a secure braid, start by taking right section and go underneath the center strand and pull it to the middle. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 4: Now take the other end strand and go underneath to the middle. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 5: Do this one more time with the other end strand, going underneath to the middle. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 6: Now it’s time to start pulling additional hair from the sides. Like a typical french braid, start pulling equal slices of hair on each side of the head, adding it to the outer strand and taking it to the center…but instead of going overtop the center strand, take everything underneath.

Keep repeating from side to side, taking equal sections of hair from sides of head and taking it underneath the center strand.  This creates a braid that sits on top of the head rather than underneath.

Every Girl Needs Her Best T

Let’s get real. Every girl needs her Best T. Whether you’re searching for the perfect every day tee or planning a casual-glam Galentine’s Day #OOTD, basics are always better.

Bloggers and real-life besties, Britt and Whit, show us how to style our favorite basic tee. With it’s soft, silky fabric and flattering fit, it’s a must-have in every girls’ wardrobe!

Meet Britt and Whit:
Britt+Whit is a San Francisco based fashion blog run by two best friends who love to play dress up! They chronicle their daily style including what they wear to the office and out on the weekends.Every girl needs her Best T with Britt + Whit

What Inspired Their Look:
“Being besties, we find that we always end up dressing alike!  The number of times we have shown up places wearing nearly identical outfits is astounding.  So when we set out to style our Aerie Best T Tees it was no surprise that we styled them in very similar ways, though still maintaining our own unique twist! The best things about sharing a blog with your best friend is that while we like similar looks and trends, we always incorporate and style them a bit to differently, so that means double the looks and outfits!”

Every girl needs her Best T with Britt + Whit

What Inspired Britt’s Look:
“I was inspired by a more sophisticated approach to the basic jeans and t-shirt look.  The v-neck cut of the tee is not only super flattering, but also gave me an excuse to add on a gorgeous statement necklace!  I love the contrast of the casual tee and ripped denim with the high heels and jeweled necklace.  Perfect look for a more casual night out with friends.”

What Inspired Whit’s Look:
“I love a classic tee like this because it’s a great piece to dress down or up. While Britt went with a statement necklace, I added some fun statement earrings. With the cut of the v-neck I prefer a bit more delicate take on my necklace jewelry. I added a monogrammed W necklace Britt actually gave me! I added some black skinny jeans and classic black pumps to finish off my look.”

#AerieBraletteCrush with Love, Lenore

We’ve got a crush on our bralettes and you should, too. Between the softest lace and pretty little details, what’s not to love?

Jacy from Love, Lenore shows us the perfect harmony that is our low-back tee and softest lace racerback bralette below.

Meet Jacy:
“Hi guys! I’m Jacy Overstreet, blogger behind Love, Lenore (my middle name, passed down through my family). I’m 23 and live in Missouri with my hubby and two rescue dogs, and my blog is all about everyday chic style that’s attainable for real life and real budgets. During the day I work in education PR where I have to dress up, so outside of work I love having comfortable, casual pieces that can easily take me from running errands to hanging out at home.

I’ve been a big fan of Aerie clothing for years now and can’t get enough of their cute loungewear, accessories, and gorgeous intimates! This low-back tee is one of the softest tops I’ve ever owned, and I love that the scoop back shows off the lace detail of my bralette. I love Aerie bralettes because of their gorgeous lace and color options, and how they add that special touch to an outfit while being so comfortable! They’re also great for all seasons whether under a tee like this, under an oversized sweater, or under a low-back sundress or tank in the summer.”

#AerieBraletteCrush with Love, Lenore What Inspired Jacy’s Look:
“This outfit was inspired by my past weekend! I wore my low-back tee and bralette at home to play with my dogs, cook brunch, and get ready for the day, and then simply swapped out a few pieces for jeans, ankle boots and a beanie to quickly get me out the door for our day!”

How To Style a Bralette with Skirt the Rules

It may be Monday, but we’ve still got the weekend on our minds. Jen from Skirt the Rules shows us how she made the most of her downtime in her Aerie bralette.

What Inspired Jen’s Look:
When it comes to weekends, I don’t mess around.  I love waking up in the morning knowing that I have the whole day ahead of me (fresh blooms on the nightstand don’t hurt either), but my favorite part has to be the weekend wear.  Comfort is key, but cuteness is pretty high up my list too, for obvious reasons.  There’s nothing like lounging around in the softest of t-shirts and a little lace bralette.  It’s like a match made in heaven!
