Watch Aerie girl, Ebonee below as she shows off step-by-step our 3 favorite ways to wear the beach wrap.

How To: Style the Beach Wrap

#1: The Skirt 

  • Open the wrap completely and slide behind your waist
  • Cross the two ends together the top corners and make a small knot
  • Pull tight and secure the knot close to your waist
  • Looking good, girl!
  • Stylist Tip: If you are looking to shorten the length of your skirt, first fold the scarf in half! 

#2: The Dress

  • Place the wrap around your back and pull the fabric under your arms
  • Wrap the scarf across your chest covering your cute suit
  • Cross the two ends together at the front and tie a secure knot
  • Voila! The perfect cover-up!

#3: The Classic Wrap

  • Hold the wrap at one end and give it a light twist
  • Place the twisted scarf around your neck
  • Drape the scarf around your neck in a loop
  • Fluff and adjust to create lots of volume
  • Ta-da!

Wrap, knot and drape your way to stylishness this summer!

Aerie For Yellowberry

Two years ago, 17-year-old Megan Grassell went bra shopping with her little sister, Mary Margaret. But in a sea of underwire, pushups and padding, they weren’t able to find anything for a developing, 13-year-old girl. So Megan set out to “change the bra industry for tween girls” and did something that most 17 year olds would not—she started her own company! Yellowberry began with one passionate girl, a mission to “build a product that didn’t exist” and a Kickstarter campaign. It soon grew into something much more. Not only did it land Megan on Time Magazine’s list of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014, but it also established Yellowberry at the forefront of a movement for girls everywhere.

Yellowberry designs and makes real bras for girls. Free of padding and push-up features, these bras are made for girls who want youthful, colorful and comfortable styles. Yellowberry urges girls to enjoy—not rush—the beginning, “yellow” stages of life, and Megan wants her product and her brand to “support girls to be who they are and celebrate their time as just that, girls.” We couldn’t agree more!

Introducing Aerie for Yellowberry – our best collab evah!

Aerie For Yellowberry

Now, we’re super-psyched to partner with Megan on Aerie for Yellowberry, our best collab evah! This exclusive collection of comfy, fun-to-wear bras is for our “little sisters,” the next generation of #AerieREAL girls. For Megan, this collab was meant to be: “I am incredibly grateful to be able to partner with a brand that shares so many of the same core messages that I built Yellowberry upon; inspiration for girls to have a positive self-image, strong self-confidence and a great sense of their own special identity.”

A girl with an idea is a powerful thing. A movement of girls is even stronger!

Follow Her Friday: Laura Porter

We’re inspired each day by the stories you share that show how you’re #AerieREAL. This week we’re sharing the story of 23-year-old Laura Porter, a student at the George Washington University, and founder of SPEAK GW. A recovering ED warrior and advocate for change and body positivity, Laura works each day to provide resources, and raise awareness and attention to the problem of eating disorders specifically on campus. Read on below to learn more about Laura and to follow her journey!

Follow Her Friday: Laura PorterAerie: Hi, Laura! Thanks for chatting with us. We love SPEAK’s mission. What inspired you to launch SPEAK GW?

Laura: I wanted to create a space and a community where people weren’t afraid to speak up about eating disorders.  I am inspired by the community Proud2BMe and NEDA have built online, and I love being able to bring that community to men and women in college, because that’s what I needed when I was struggling. Organizations like SPEAK and Proud2BMe give young people the opportunities to use their voices and silence stigma, which really changes lives.

Aerie: Do you have a role model? If so who is he/ she and why does he/ she inspire you?

Laura: My role models are the men and women who share their stories so bravely with others and those warriors who fought internal battles with addiction, eating disorders and other illnesses, and won.  There are so many people I have met in treatment who I now see doing amazing things and successfully and bravely taking on life’s challenges one day at a time.  Those are my role models.

Aerie: After graduation, what is your ultimate dream job?

Laura: It’s my dream to speak to young men and women around the country and share my story of recovery from alcoholism and an eating disorder. I want people to never feel alone and to know that there is always hope.

Aerie: Do you have a favorite quote or mantra? 

Laura: My mantra is “speaking up saves lives.” It’s so true because when we share our stories and use our voices, we can reach people in ways that can change a life.

Aerie: Do you have a secret skill or talent? Spill!
