How to Style a Tassel Tank

Tassels are everywhere this summer and our Breezy Tassel Tank is right on trend! Its side slits and bohemian-inspired print make it our breezy new fave.

Francesca from Frank Vinyl pairs it with distressed denim and a bright wedge for a pop of color!

How to Style a Tassel Tank

“This years Summer style is all about embroidery, patterns, colorful tassels and anything boho. Of course I’m all over this. I’ve always been a junkie of anything even slightly reminiscent or fully “all in” eclectic/boho/folklore style. Especially when it is all mixed with the right pieces and textures. I was trying to stay slightly more neutral lately but who am I kidding? It’s hard to stay away from prints and colors during this hot summer heat that we are experiencing here in So Cal. This Aerie Breezy Tassel Tank has all of the above. The foolproof easy tank to throw on with jeans and instantly make my casual outfit stylish. I’m a big fan of how I can also dress this way down with some cute breezy shorts around the house or to head to the beach with a bikini underneath.”

How to Style a Tassel Tank“For this street style look, I mixed a bit of Folklore style with modern street vibe. I paired this tank with old ripped jeans and bright red wedges. I like how the red wedge heels help bring all the reds in the outfit out (like in the cute little tassels). All about those tiny details! Of course I always try and make sure to draw the eye to those tiny unique details somehow.”

5. Give that bottle a good shake.

How To Apply:
Always shake your spray before applying. For best results, spray a few spritzes two inches from roots on either dry or wet hair. Scrunch, twist and toss your hair to create that perfectly messy texture. Spray and scrunch until you’ve reached your desired look! Pro tip: Use a hairdryer to speed up the drying process.

Introducing AEO APT: Fill Your Home With #AEOSTYLE

MAKE YOUR SPACE YOUR HAPPY PLACE
Styling tips & inspiration for transforming your dorm or apt with the new AEO APT collection: Feel like you’ve hit a wall in styling your apartment? We’ve got you covered. And your covers. Let’s start in your sanctuary, the bedroom. You want your bedroom to be a reflection of you, so we’re providing some ways for you to make the most of your space, no matter how small.

Make your space your happy place with home decor from the AEO apartment collection.

BEDDING IS EVERYTHING
The focal point of a bedroom is, well, the bed. You spend a lot of time there. It’s your snooze spot, your snack spot, your chill spot, and most importantly, your sleep spot. Make it yours by mixing and matching sheets and comforters to get a set that makes you want to spend the morning in bed (more than you already do). Whether you prefer a cool, morning hue or a darker, eye-catching print, your comforter should do the job of pulling everything in the room together so you can focus on catching all the Z’s you please. Try and incorporate a textured duvet to add subtle depth to the room, it’ll make sure you’ll always wake up on the right side of the bed.

GOT A BLANK SPACE, BABY?
Don’t be afraid of blank space, white walls are your friend! Open it up by avoiding darker paint colors that tend to give the illusion of a shrinking room. Instead, juxtapose a bold patterned boho tapestry against a blank wall to elongate and lighten up the space. Throw it over a bedframe to keep a clean look while not sacrificing the colors you love. If patterns aren’t your thing opt for a cityscape or nature scene that allows your bedroom to be your place to escape. Don’t let your walls confine you, give yourself more room to daydream.

LIGHT IT UP
You can’t go wrong with natural light, but when that doesn’t suffice you need lights that provide a warm and fuzzy wakeup aesthetic that doesn’t feel artificial. String lights are the perfect wall accent; hang them over your bed to get the right lighting for any mood, or bottle them up on a bedside table for a free-spirit, firefly aesthetic. You’ll get a soft glow ideal for mellow mornings or Saturday nights in.

PILLOW TALK
There is no such thing as too many pillows. Afraid your bed is boring? Liven it up by adding a printed or textured pillow to the mix. A great graphic or text decal can add just the right amount of fun to a room without being over the top. Throw it anywhere, whether it be on a bed or a chair or even the floor. Extra pillows mean more comfy, more cozy, and more you.

CLUTTER CONTROL
Less is more, especially in a smaller space. While your bedroom should be an expression of you, sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to go. Pick a few of your favorite photos to hang on a wall chain to add some personality to a bland corner without looking sloppy. Try not to crowd nightstands and shelves with unnecessary knickknacks, instead grab a staple candle or mug and keep the rest of the mess hidden in a vintage storage unit. A clean space is a happy space.

Whoever said that size matters was wrong! The room you’ve been dreaming about doesn’t have to stay a dream, make it a reality with AEO APT. Show us how you style your space with AEO APT using #liveinaeostyle on Instagram & Twitter.

NEW! AERIE BODY

Good stuff for the REAL you. Loaded with good ingredients and free of the bad stuff, our 5 new fragrances in exfoliating body washes, moisturizing lotions and yummy mists are made to mix and match. We talked with Phuong Ireland, Director of Personal Care and Beauty, for the inside scoop on our sweetest new scents.

NEW! Aerie Body How did the collection come to be?

We’ve heard from our Aerie girls that they want to know what’s in their beauty products… and what’s not. So we’ve developed a line of body care products featuring fun, fresh fragrances that are loaded with skin-loving ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, aloe and vitamin E. And it has none of the bad stuff like parabens, phthalates and gluten. It’s cruelty-free, too, meaning we don’t test on animals.

Which fragrance is your fave?

Be Sunnie – it’s our fresh and energizing fragrance. This is my favorite fragrance because it feels so different from any fragrance I’ve smelled before and is so fresh and clean. It has notes of sparkling Meyer Lemon, pink sea salt, and an ocean breeze accord.

Take us through the steps!

The 5 fragrances are offered in 3 different forms so you have lots to choose from. The products are made to be layered on top of each other for fragrance that lasts all day.

  1. Cleanse with our exfoliating body wash.

This wash is packed with coconut oil, sugarcane and the antioxidant acai, known to help keep skin healthy and moisturized. The luxurious lather cleanses while jojoba beads and natural pumice gently buff and exfoliate skin cells for fresh, glowing, dewy skin. This formula is very gentle, so it can be used every day for cleansing and exfoliation.

  1. Moisturize with our amazing body lotion.

It’s loaded with rich shea butter, which nourishes and heals skin. The formula also contains coconut oil, aloe and vitamin E—a powerful combination of moisture-rich, conditioning ingredients.

  1. Spritz our body mist with aloe.

Our mists are light and fresh, and leave long-lasting scents that aren’t overpowering. They’re infused with conditioning aloe and antioxidant green tea.

You can use the same scent across products to make your fragrance last longer, or mix and match scents to make a customized fragrance all your own. Some of our favorite combinations are the Be Sunnie Lotion with the Be Bright Mist and the Be Chill Mist with the Be Cozy lotion.
