How To: Throw the Perfect End of Summer Party!

Let’s face it, it’s never easy saying goodbye to summer. It’s like saying au revoir to your favorite Aerie bra. No one REALLY wants to do it, but there comes a time when it must be done.

So we figure, why not have one last hurrah? We’ll tell you how to make your end of summer party the one your friends will be talking about all winter long. Yes, we said the ‘W’ word. Too soon? Ok, maybe a little.

First and foremost, you’ll need the perfect Aerie bikini. After all, you should be the life of the party, right?

Our Bridget Bikini Top and Hi-Rise Hipster Bottom definitely fit the bill. Between the soft foam padding and silky stretch nylon, you’ll be comfortable enough to wear this number all night long. And did we mention how much we love this floral print? Adorbs.

Once you’ve decided on the perfect suit, be sure to pick up a few layering essentials. Our Swing Tank, Fleece Shorts and Henley Popover are perfect to throw on after a quick dip in the pool. And don’t forget to grab your favorite pair of sunnies and a worn in baseball cap to help keep the rays at bay.

Take full advantage of the last few weeks of warm weather by indulging in our favorite summer staple, s’mores. Ok, so we may be a week late on National S’mores Day, but really, who’s paying attention?

Gather all your friends around a mini bonfire, grab a bag of marshmallows, and start roasting to perfection! xo

Follow Her Friday: Colbie Callait

Earlier this month, Colbie Callait released a video that made us do a double take.  The song is called “Try” and it shows a cast of beautiful women, Colbie included, going from full makeup and fake lashes to their fresh-faced, natural selves.

Follow Her Friday: Colbie Callait

Inspiring, to say the least, “Try,” is Colbie’s statement on how women shouldn’t have to “try so hard.” It was actually born out of her own frustration when her label told her that her music needed to change. After being pressured to be more like the pop stars that have set the standard – you know what we’re talking about – Colbie decided to scrap her new album and write a completely new one. The result was Gypsy Heart Side A, an EP with a lot of honesty, strength and so much inspiration.

Follow Her Friday: Colbie Callait

We loved Colbie’s message and shared it as our Wednesday Wisdom last week! Watch the video “Try” below and be sure to check out her new EP available for download here!

Guest Blog Post: Jenny Altman on Perfect T-Shirt Bras

Sheer and lightweight tees and tanks all have one thing in common – they need a great t-shirt bra!

The t-shirt bra is the modern girl’s go-to bra of choice…and why? There is no show through. It is like your trustworthy BFF that works with everything. It may not be the most sexy bra in your drawer (although it can be tres pretty), but it makes your boobs look good and keeps you modest even in the coldest of places.

Here are my go-to t-shirt bras for summer and back to school:

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18189

Sunnie is my #1 basic t-shirt bra. She is full-coverage (but not too much), has stretch for comfort, is lightly lined (no show through!) and hides the back-fat (well, we all have some!). She’s paired here with our Love Me Don’t Retouch Me tee for the perfect comfy and confident look!

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18179

Charley is my new BFF. She conceals, has a deep plunge for low tees and tanks, gives great push up and even has a super secret j-hook in the back, instantly transforming her into a racerback bra. Plus her colors are amazing! I love the cotton Charley in light grey with the neon yellow trim! It pairs perfectly with the neon stripe Charley tee!

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18195

Blakely is a longtime fave, especially with pretty lace detail. She is a great lightly lined demi-cup which gives coverage and a full, rounded shape. Her solid colors are amazing (with contrast lace detail!) and her allover lace shows you that t-shirt bras don’t have to be boring. The lace is flat and smooth so it still works under tees, but looks much fancier than your go-to nudes.

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18209

Jaclyn is your smoothest, softest pushup bra with underwire. She is the perfect t-shirt bra (so smooth, everything just glides over her) with built in pillows around the wire (seriously!). She feels dreamy and lovely even while doing her job of pushing you up to perkiest perfection! I love the ombre colors, too. Check out the lilac with two tone purple lace around the band.

Which t-shirt bra is YOUR go-to?

Tell me your fave or ask me a question at AskJenny@AE.com.

Xoxo,

Jenny
