What to Wear to a Festival

Crochet all day every day! Our fave detail of the season adds the right amount of boho vibes.

Shannon from Upbeat Soles layers our Tiered Tie Dress over the Romantic Lace Longline Bralette and adds some fun, boho-inspired accessories just in time for festival season. What to Wear to a Festival

“With festival season in full swing, I cannot get enough of anything bohemian inspired! This simple black Aerie dress was the perfect base to start off a fun look full of festival vibes! When going with a festival look you can never have too many accessories so I paired it with this gorgeous stone layered necklace and super cute coin chain belt. As for the shoes, I went with a strappy lace up gladiator sandal. No festival look is complete without the perfect hat!”

A Letter to High-Schoolers: We Need Your Voice!

I can’t imagine how many times you’ve had to listen to people ask about your aspirations and goals after high school. What’s next, Marisa? When do you graduate, Jimmy? What are you planning to do after high school, Jasmine? You’ve heard over and over and over again about college. College is important. College is essential. College, college, college.

Well, sorry to all the Jimmy’s out there, but we agree.

Higher education—heading to a university, trade school, community college, or participating in distance learning—truly affects your future. In today’s economy, a high school diploma just isn’t enough. Students have to reach higher, which is why the Better Make Room initiative is working hard to rally the country around its “North Star” goal — that by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.

The process is long: weeks and weeks of frantically rushing to complete college applications. Pouring your heart and soul into your essays. How many times did you pull an all-nighter? How many times did you order pizza late at night while lying in the middle of your room, trying to come up with the perfect words to say to wow your college prospects? How many times did you get home from school, only to find you hadn’t received your acceptance letter yet?

Then one day, your letter arrived in the mail.

All those late nights and weekends spent studying were worth it. You accomplished something HUGE. Something to be proud of. The next step in your life, in your education, in your future is upon you.

Let’s celebrate together.

College Signing Day is an event supported by the Better Make Room campaign for students like you across the country to celebrate their futures and show off their college acceptance letters. It’s time that we celebrate what you’ve accomplished and how the world #BetterMakeRoom for students like you—on your way to change the world!

Show us your #SigningSelfie—a photo with your acceptance letter, of you in your college gear or just of you really excited about where you’re headed—and post it online on April 26, 2016.

If you post it with the hashtags #BetterMakeRoom and #CollegeSigningDay, it might just show up on American Eagle Outfitter’s Times Square billboard on April 26, where thousands of people walk by everyday!

Summer Fitness Essentials

Aerie’s soft, sporty and functional bralettes and undies are the most fun to mix and match colors, textures and styles. With the right sporty bralette and undies, you’ll feel like a whole new girl! Read below for some of our favorites.

MESH BRALETTE
The Mesh Bralette has really fun angles, layers and added textures to amp up your typical bralette. The v-front, strappy elastic band and mesh layers give it the ultimate sporty look. Pair it with an open back workout tank or v-neck tee to emphasize its bold color and sporty look.

MESH TWIST LONGLINE BRALETTE
The Mesh Twist Longline Bralette is your classic bralette with a fun, sporty spin. It offers adjustable straps in a soft, stretchy mesh material with a cute twisted opening in the front for added detail. Pair it with a sheer workout tank to show the focal front opening.

HI NECK SEAMLESS BRALETTE
The Hi Neck Seamless Bralette is the trendsetter of the Aerie collection. No seams mean maximum comfort, and its open mesh back keeps you cool. Try it at your next hot yoga sweat sesh!

Mesh Bralette | Sport-ish 3/4 Crop | Ban.do Exercise Mat

OUTTA-SIGHT THONG
These soft, completely seamless and tagless undies make undie lines totally disappear. The Outta-Sight Thong is your go-to when you’re in need of a work-to-workout undie: wear them under a dress at work and stay comfortable when you head to the gym after.

OUTTA-SIGHT MINI BOYBRIEF
With the Outta-Sight Mini Boybrief, you have the same seamless, tagless undie as the Outta-Sight Thong, but with a little more coverage. Like the thong version of these undies, you can wear the Mini Boybrief under any outfit that says *no bueno* to undie lines. 

SEAMLESS BOYFRIEF + SHINE
For no cheek peek but all comfort, the Seamless Boybrief + Shine undies are a favorite. Wear them for R+R or when you want an extra pretty pair to boost your mood, this undie does it all.
