AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: PLAID

Every closet needs a great plaid shirt. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Between it’s classic fit, bold print and button down collar, you’re guaranteed to want one in every color. See how Saul from Trend Styled puts his twist on our timeless button down below.

What Inspired Saul’s Look:
I love the flexibility a plaid shirt has when styling an outfit. Easily dressed up under a suit or dressed down with some athletic inspiration, my plaids rotate through my wardrobe no matter the season or occasion. I kept this look pretty casual as I ran errands – pairing my AEO plaid with some of my favorite AEO jogger sweats and structured denim jacket made my look super comfortable without losing any style points!

What To Wear: New Year’s Eve

We can all agree that New Year’s Eve is a time to shine. Whether you’re ringing in the new year out on the town or staying in with family and friends, a little bit of sparkle can go a long way.

Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish shows us how she styles her favorite Aerie finds to watch the ball drop.

What inspired Allexis’s Looks:
Hey friends! When it comes to NYE we all know there are really only two ways to celebrate: out on the town with friends, or snuggled in at home with loved ones. To make your New Year’s Eve a little easier I put together a look for you all for each way to celebrate. I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ringing in the new year with a night out on the town I want to be warm, comfortable, and cute. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging a dress down all night or having freezing bare legs. These cute sequined leggings are THE perfect piece to meet those needs without having to compromise looking great!

To complete the look and keep it fun, I paired these bad boys with a fun printed sweater and wedges that are comfy enough to dance the night away in. Sequins are really a no brainer when it comes to NYE and some other fun ways to style some cute sequined leggings would be with a fun graphic tee and classic pair of pumps, or with a boyfriend blazer and plain white tee. The possibilities are endless and there’s really no way to go wrong with these leggings!

For a night in, watching the ball drop on Times Square on the good old television, the key to a cute look is keeping it cozy while bringing in fun sparkly elements that make it so it doesn’t just feel like another boring night at home! This sequined bralette layered underneath this soft henley is the perfect way to add that bit of New Year’s fun while these cozy little knit PJ shorts keep things casual and comfy!

New Year’s Eve Essentials

New Year’s Eve is a symbol of both the last hurrah of the holiday party season, and the start of a new and exciting year. To celebrate, we’re definitely planning on looking our best for the countdown to midnight. It’s the best excuse to bring out our least practical (but prettiest!) party dresses and dance all night!

Aerie’s fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, is here to tell you why the Aerie Bare Bra is your secret weapon to help you ring in the new year!

The Aerie Bare Bra is an NYE essential.

The Bare Bra will support long past the stroke of midnight!

Why It’s a Must-Have:

The Bare Bra is the ultimate in holiday solutions. This bra goes under every top or dress you want to wear, but don’t have the right bra for. It goes under strapless, halter, one shoulder and even under backless dresses. The woman who invented this bra is brilliant!

Which One to Buy?

Aerie offers both pushup and lightly lined options – both are great staples to have, depending on your preference. In terms of color, nude goes under every single thing you will ever wear. But black is just a little prettier, so if you often wear dark tops, go black. Or buy both as investment pieces and wear them a million times each.

 What Size to Buy?

Buy these bras by cup size as you normally would. If you aren’t sure of your size, head to an Aerie store for an expert fitting.

 Quick Tips for Wearing the Bare Bra:

OK, these can be a little tricky to put on the first time around..so listen here. No deodorant, fragrance, powder, baby oil or moisturizer where the bra sits on the body. If you don’t follow these rules, the bra may not stick as well as it should…you don’t want it to end up around your waist! Take the plastic liner out of the bra cups first. Stand tall in front of a mirror and rest each breast into the cup and hoist the bra up a bit so that it fits snug against the body. If your bra has a side wing, remove the plastic from each side wing and stick it securely to your side. These side wings are amazing and give a little extra support to this backless bra.

Caring for Your Bare Bra 101:

Want to make sure your Bare Bra lasts? They require a little extra TLC than your average pushup. After you wear the bra, wash it in the sink with water and a mild soap. Leave it out to fully dry. Once dry, put the plastic liner back inside the bra and store the bra back inside the box you got it in. This keeps the shape and the adhesive lasting a long while!

A Few Last-Minute Quick Tips:

My other NYE secret weapon are Outta Sight undies! They are the best for all of those knit, jersey, or fitted holiday dresses. Undie lines are the worst and these undies are smooth as can be!

Finally, keep a few strips of Apparel Tape in your bag at all times. For any button that pops off, hem that falls, strap that slips, or other fashion emergencies, this is your best fashion friend.

Thanks for the tips, Jenny! Have a Happy New Year, Aerie girls!

Xoxo,

Aerie

7 things we love: Holiday Edition

20141217_7_THINGS

{ Image Source: 1. | 1. | 1. | 1. L. to R. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | }

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! We’re getting in the spirit with a holiday-themed edition of 7 Things We Love. So grab a glass of eggnog, settle down in front of the fireplace and check out our top picks for the season (and be sure to let us know your favorite holiday things, too).

Wake Up In Fun PJ’s
There’s nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning (or, okay, any winter day really) in a set of really fun pajamas. For girls, we’re totally loving our Fair Isle Knit Legging (currently sold out online, but check your closest AEO for availability), especially when it’s paired with a too cute for words sequined penguin sweatshirt. And for guys, we can’t get enough of buffalo check this season (the “Iced Out” graphic on the T just adds to the festive feel).

Give An AEO Gift Card To Someone Special
Still stumped over what to buy for your brother/sister/mom/dad/BFF/etc? Why not give an AEO Gift Card? Whether you choose a traditional card, an E-Gift Card or a Mobile Gift Card, they’re always the perfect gift for everyone on your list. We’ve created tons of fun designs for them this year, and you can even personalize a digital greeting for the recipient! Just visit ae.com/giftcard from your phone to include a voice or text message with the card.

Download The Elf Stickers on Facebook Messenger
Want to make the Facebook messages you send a little more fun? The Elf stickers (yes, inspired by your favorite human elf) will have you laughing and messaging up a storm. All of the best lines from the movie are included, from “Santa! I know him!” and “I just like to smile!” to “You sit on a throne of lies!” and “I’m a cotton headed ninny muggins.” The only problem? You might get addicted to sending them.

Listen to “That’s Christmas To Me” By Pentatonix
Honestly? It’s hard to even choose a favorite song from this album. The intricate harmonies and awesome voices of this five-person a cappella group soar over some of the most loved Christmas songs and give them a fresh new twist. We’re especially digging “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” “Sleigh Ride” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”—but, really, you can’t go wrong with any of the songs on this album.

DIY A Hot Chocolate Bar
Come on, who doesn’t love hot chocolate on a cold winter day? We know we do. We scoured Pinterest this year for ideas on how to turn an empty space into a hot cocoa wonderland. Buy some marshmallows, cinnamon and peppermint sticks, some fancy mugs and maybe a stocking or two (oh, and lots of hot cocoa, of course)… and get ready to do some serious chocolate drinking!

Read How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Is it really the holidays without this gem by Dr. Seuss? It’s one of the most loved Christmas stories for a reason. So travel to Whoville with the grouchy, grumpy Grinch and go along on his journey toward discovering what Christmas is really about.

Watch Love Actually
We don’t know about you, but the holidays really haven’t begun until we watch this star-studded movie of intersecting plots and characters, filled with the spirit of joy, giving and love. (Not to mention a killer dance scene by Hugh Grant.) It warms our hearts more and more every year!
