Back to Real Life

1

Ok Aerie girls, it’s time to get real. Summer has officially come to an end and that means Fall style is upon us. That’s right. Start packing away those shorts & swimsuits, because it’s leggings & layers from here on out! Our Back to Real Life lookbook proves that Fall never looked so good.

Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun with prints. Our Hi-Rise Printed Legging is sure to turn heads on campus with its pretty floral pattern and perfect berry palette. Complete the look with our Legging T-Shirt, Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt and Slouchy Beanie.

4

Fall means a jam-packed social (and academic, of course) calendar, filled with pumpkin spice latte dates and late night study sessions. When you get a minute to relax, being comfortable is an absolute must. Our Woven Bomber and Scoop Neck Tank is the perfect pairing to catch up on the latest Aerie playlist and de-stress.

6

Running errands between classes? Throw on our Skinny Jogger or Hi-Rise Printed Legging to check things off your to-do list in style.

3

Cruise around campus in ultimate comfort with our Lounge Sweatpant. The softest stretch fabric is perfect for yoga or meeting up with your BFFs for lunch. Throw on a Long Sleeve T-Shirt for a pop of color and bring along our Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt just in case it gets chilly.

7

If your back-to-school style is a bit edgier, the Print legging in Charcoal Sky is going to be your new best friend.  Slip on our Softest Modal Bralette and pair with a Swing Tank to take care free to a whole new level.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you’ve already began packing or you’re still anxiously scrolling through Pinterest to find the perfect back-to-school looks, it’s not too late to pick up those last minute must-haves. Leave the stress behind and let us show you how easy it is to ace cute and comfortable!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

We think you’ll agree that one of the best parts of going off to college is the freedom. Not just the freedom to stay up until midnight, eating oreos and laughing with your roomie (okay, that’s awesome, too) but the freedom to dress how you want, when you want. You have the rest of your life to be an adult, so for now rock that effortlessly chic look like it’s going out of style.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you plan to spend afternoons doing yoga on the quad or lounging with your besties, our Crop Yoga Pant is something you can’t live without.  Between the soft stretch cotton jersey and lace print waistband, you’ll own multiple pairs by the end of the semester. Yes, they’re that good. Pair with our über-comfortable Seamless Bra to achieve that level of zen you’ll need right before your intense mid-term.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

For all you busy fashionistas running (literally!) from one class to the next, you’re going to love the Best Basics Shop. Throw on our Hide & Peek Plunge Bralette, Scoop Neck Tank and Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt to achieve that simple, yet stylish #OOTD. And the look wouldn’t be complete without our Jogger – a skinny fit that can be dressed up or down. If that doesn’t sound like sweatpant bliss, we don’t know what does.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Once your #OOTD is picked out, you’ll want to add a little something sweet. Our Hidden Love line of Body Lotion, Body Cream, Body Mist and Perfume offer a pretty mix of fresh fruits, sensual florals and creamy vanilla. Grab a Rollerball to throw in your bag for those late night study sessions!

Every girl on-the-go will appreciate our adorable Baggu Backpack! With its floral print, double strap and (washing machine-friendly!) cotton canvas, it offers the perfect harmony of cute and functional. Now all that’s left to do is grab your monogrammed notebooks and head to class in style!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

After a long day of class, you deserve to unwind in style. We may be a little biased, but our sleep sets are some of the absolute cutest around. Let’s start with our Softest Modal Bralette and Mini Boyfrief. Not only are they made of the softest (you guessed it!) modal, they have the sweetest scalloped lace trim. Throw on a Sleep Top and a pair of Boxers, or one of our Softest Sleep Robes, to drift off to dreamland.

Now that your dorm essentials have been picked out, are you ready for class to begin? The answer: You were born ready. Good luck – we know you’re going to do great! xo

How to Wear: Jogger Pants

This fall we’re mixing street style and comfort like never before. Let’s start with the jogger pant. Chances are you’ve either seen it or you’ve heard about it, but the real question is, have you rocked it yet? If the answer is no, you’re missing out. With its relaxed fit, drawstring waist, and cuffed bottom it offers the perfect balance of yes, you guessed it, style and comfort. Pair with a Plaid Button Down Shirt and Black Coated Denim Jacket for a night out with friends or throw on a Pocket Baseball T-Shirt and Reebok ZQuick Sneaker to run errands around town. Either way, the jogger is ideal for the guy on the go. Have we convinced you yet?

Designer Interview: Sarah Day

Bohemian, or as many refer to as boho, is a style that can sometimes be difficult to describe. Why? Because its can mean something different to everyone. It’s unique and that’s why we love it. Dubbed the “Boho Queen” by her team (for very good reason!) our Associate Design Director of Dresses, Skirts & Woven Shirts, Sarah sat down with us to discuss all things bohemian and where she draws her inspiration from.

Name & occupation:
Sarah Day, Associate Design Director of Dresses, Skirts & Woven Shirts

Where are you from?
Portsmouth, UK

Where did you draw inspiration from for the boho trend?
My life experiences – I love to travel. Everywhere I travel, I always buy clothing, accessories and things for my home. My home is my bohemian sanctuary full of treasures I find.

3. Hi-Lo Boho Maxi Dress (Coming soon in August!) Similar: Printed Empire Maxi Dress

The boho trend is known for being carefree and casual; can you tell us how you would transform this look from day to night?
Add a ton of accessories – you can never have too much jingle when it comes to jewelry! I personally can’t live without my collection of vintage Native American turquoise jewelry.  It’s always the finishing touch for all my boho clothing and I definitely use it to take me from day to night.

I always invest in jackets, bags & shoes. Great accessories and outerwear can make an inexpensive dress or outfit look more expensive and take your outfit from day to night. Boho is about pulling together pieces and putting it together in a different way. I love white feminine dresses worn with boots or a washed black favorite tee with destroyed denims and a ton of turquoise jewelry. It’s about pretty and tough – mixing lace with leather, mixing vintage and new.

The best way to describe bohemian style and taking it from day to night is – it’s about being unique, being yourself & putting outfits together in a way that lets the world see your personality through your clothing. You should never feel too done up or too put together. Boho should feel effortless and your choices in accessories can really make you stand out from the crowd.

What are your 3 favorite boho pieces from this season’s collection?
Hi-Lo Boho Maxi Dress (Similar: Printed Empire Maxi Dress)

Now we would love to learn a little about you!

What television show are you obsessed with at the moment?
I’m a sucker for talent shows! I love it when the underdog is really talented and win. At the moment, it’s America’s Got Talent, but my favorites are X Factor & American Idol.

If you weren’t working in fashion, what would you be doing?
Lion tamer! No, seriously, I’d work for the ASPCA to help rescue animals.

What are 3 words to describe your personal style?
Bohemian, feminine, western and turquoise jewelry. Sorry, I need 4!

Favorite place you’ve ever visited on vacation?
Tulum, Mexico (See my most recent visit above!)

If you hosted a dinner party with a favorite style icon, who would you invite?
Stevie Nicks

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Choose a job you love! When I was young my Dad encouraged me to pick what I love (clothes) and make it my career, which was the best advice ever. I LOVE designing dresses and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
