How to Style a Vest

Elevate your look by adding the Aerie Bonfire Vest!  Mel Denisse pairs our favorite cozy layer with the Aerie Flowy Nightie and vegan leather leggings during a recent trip to NYC.

How to Style a Vest

What Inspired Mel’s Look: 
“I felt right at home with this flowy nighty and bonfire vest from Aerie, making a perfect match of dressy and cozy. The temperature drastically changed during the trip, and I wasn’t quite ready to throw on a big coat yet, so I paired these two pieces to layer on and off throughout the day. They were so comfy that I kept them for night time lounging after the long days too. That versatility is one of my favorite things about these pieces.“

Thanksgiving is still more than 2 weeks away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start packing now! Our stylist, Erin, has all you need for a weekend of too much food and too much TV on your parents’ couch.

What to Wear Today

Get Erin’s Look: Ribbed Duster Cardi Hi Lo Racerback Bralette | Boybrief Undie Tiered Tank | Boyfriend Tank | Boxer Over-The-Knee Socks Birkenstock Arizona Sandal | Graphic Sleep Mask 

Lazy-wear is all about the layers, so this look has lots of them. Start with the blues and our Hi Lo Racerback Bralette and Boybrief Undie. Mix in some lavender with our Plaid Boxers and Boyfriend Tank, then tie it all together with our white Tiered Tank. To get extra cozy, wear our Ribbed Duster Cardi over everything. It’s a sweater (we promise), but just as comfy as a long robe. Then keep warm with Over-The-Knee Socks on the bottom.

This look is made for lounging, but if your friends want to drag you out for a mini high school reunion, all you have to do is throw on leggings in place of your boxers and you’re ready to go! Just don’t forget to ditch the sleep mask.

What are your Thanksgiving plans? Comment below and tell us!

How to Style a Cardigan

Sweater weather is in full effect and that means we can’t get enough cozy cardigans, ponchos and shawls. Our Shawl Cardi is the best of both worlds with its open front and draped, oversized silhouette. Shelby from Glitter and Gingham styles our coziest cardi with a striped tee and denim for a casual #OOTD.How to Style a Cardigan

What Inspired Shelby’s Look:
“When it comes to the changing of seasons (especially fall!)  I always get so excited, not just for the pretty fall days or a trip to the pumpkin patch, but because I get to refresh and update my wardrobe for the season to come! I mean who doesn’t love wearing new clothes?! However, sometimes keeping up with the newest trends of the season can seem overwhelming, so I always go back to what I know and what I feel good in! For me, once the temperature starts to drop, you can normally always find me in a pair of skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. ”

How to Style a Cardigan

“This open cardigan from Aerie is seriously everything I wanted in a cozy cardigan. I wear that thing curled up on my couch watching tv at night, to the gym over my tank & leggings (I take it off of course once I get there ;) ), while I am running errands and even date night! I can’t wait to pair it with leather leggings, a silk top and some fun heels for a dressier look! Stay tuned because that look is probably coming to G&G veryyy soon!”

How To: Make an Almond Milk Pumpkin Spice Latte

Getting your hands on a PSL without even leaving your house? YEP. Now you can skip the coffee shop line, save your wallet a few $$ and make this baby in the comfort of your own home—with just a little help from the microwave. Oh, and did we mention it’s healthy, too?

How To: Make an Almond Milk Pumpkin Spice Latte


1/4 cup strong coffee or espresso

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 tbsp pumpkin puree

1 tbsp maple syrup (for a lighter version, use 1 packet of stevia)

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp salt


1] Pour the almond milk in a medium sized microwave-safe bowl. Add in the pumpkin puree, maple syrup/stevia, vanilla extract, spices and salt.

2] Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, poke a small hole in the top and microwave until hot (about 1 1/2 mins).

3] Remove the plastic wrap and whisk until the milk is foamy. If you don’t have a whisk, a fork makes a great substitute.

4] Pour your coffee into a cup.

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

It may be getting colder outside, but our buyers are already thinking spring! Get REAL with Katie Berger, #AerieSWIM Buyer! Read on to learn more about how she helps to plan Aerie’s line each season, her forecast for spring swim and what #AerieREAL means to her.

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

What are the responsibilities of a buyer? 
A buyer is responsible for strategizing the number of styles we can have in the store and online, along with the types of silhouettes and fits we would like to offer. Buyers work hand-in-hand with a design team that is specific to swim (though they dabble in other areas as well), who designs into our style requests. We then collectively build an assortment that we believe our customer will have to have in her closet (or swim drawer!).

Buyers track the sales trends of the business from week-to-week (and on occasion, day-to-day) to give us insight for future deliveries – if the customer doesn’t love it today, will she love something similar in a few months? A lot of the job comes from instinct, and knowing what your sales history tells you along with new trends you see coming our way! This job uses both sides of the brain… and I LOVE it!

What trends are you forecasting for swim in ’16?
We are still in love with strappy swim, but we also LOVE the 70’s vibes in swim – ruffles and crochet, one-pieces, crops and teeny tiny bottoms. I want to wear a one-piece with AEO denim shorts, head to the beach, and be ready for dinner in a snap!

We can’t WAIT for swim! Let’s talk about our current collection…what’s your favorite item for Holiday?
I love the fun accessories, including our gifting ‘grab and go’ collection! Great for gifting your friends, sisters or yourself! But really the bralettes are GORGEOUS. The laces are so feminine and the stylings are so great for any day of the week. I already bought 5 of them! And wait until you see the PJ pants…they are so cozy and cute! My Christmas morning look = aerie PJ’s.

Are you an early riser or a night owl?
Neither?! I can get up consistently early on the weekends, but why can’t I get up during the week? I could say I’m definitely a napper!

What is your favorite city that you’ve either traveled to or want to travel to?
In February I went to Tulum in Mexico, and I have to say it is easily my favorite place I’ve ever been. The relaxed, non-commercial vibe is perfect for a getaway in the sunshine. We stayed at the Hotel Mezzanine, where they brought you coffee to your door every morning, and you could take the basket out to a hammock and enjoy your coffee while looking at the ocean. I have never been so relaxed in my life! I loved it so much, I’m going back in December. Next stop, I’m thinking Iceland! Have you seen the pictures of that island? It looks so beautiful.

We’re so jealous! That sounds amazing. What’s 1 item you can’t live without?
Chapstick (and Spotify). Oh, and actually a hair tie. Yep, definitely a hair tie too.

What does #AerieREAL mean to you?
I think this can mean so many different things to different girls. For me it means being and loving yourself and not apologizing for it. We recently talked as a buying team about how girls apologize constantly when speaking their minds, and I think that’s part of what this is about – learning how to stop apologizing for who you are or what you think and embracing and owning it!

We love that! Thank you Katie for sitting down with us!

Tune in to our Snapchat today (handle: aerie) as Katie gives us a behind-the-scenes look at her day at Aerie!
