How To: Style the Beach Wrap

Light and colorful beach wraps are the must-have accessory to complete our summer wardrobe! This secret weapon will become your go-to for a cool summer evening, a quick and easy office cover-up, or the perfect extra layer for the beach.

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 young girls. Free of padding and push-up features, these bras are made for growing 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!

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!

How to Style the Fit & Flare Dress with Style Bungalow

Meet Stephanie:
“Hi everyone! I’m Stephanie, a twenty-something former ballerina turned PR pro living in a sub-tropical paradise in South Florida. Addicted to fashion, I started The Style Bungalow in March 2014 as a way to share my personal, relatable style, inspirations and thoughts – one fab outfit at a time. I’m a firm believer that the choices we make in our day-to-day outfits can send a powerful message. From cool confidence to chic to free-spirited and creative, it’s important to make sure you’re reflecting who you are through your personal style. When I’m not home blogging, working or dancing the night away, I can be found running around town searching for on-trend pieces, spending time with my friends and family or soaking up the beautiful Florida sun. Cheers!”

Floral dresses are a staple every fashionista needs in their wardrobe this spring. This one, by American Eagle, feels fresh and girly, and swishes gently as you walk… or dance! I wore it with brown strappy heels and a jean jacket, but you can totally wear yours on a sunny spring day with sandals, hat and an oversized tote.”
