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. ”

“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!”

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.

Erin’s Outfit Of The Week: Winter Whites Are Coming!

Oh (cold) snap! There’s no escaping it: it’s November, temps are dropping and winter is coming… but so are winter whites! This week, Erin shows you how to transition into outfit whiteouts by mixing in subtle neutrals until winter is officially here.

Our Flowy Nightie was designed as sleepwear, but there’s no reason you can’t show it off and wear it out, too. Its v-neck silhouette is the best excuse to show a subtle pop of color with your lavender Lace Strappy Racerback Bralette underneath. Match with a Bikini Undie in the same shade for the prettiest pair.

Erin’s Outfit Of The Week: Winter Whites Are Coming!

To stay warm, layer with a taupe Bonfire Vest. We know we say it a lot, but we mean it. This soft knit blend is COZY! Then get even warmer with a Supersoft Beanie on top. On the bottom, keep the winter whites going with our plaid Boot Socks. Wear AEO’s Slouchy Tall Boots over them to bare a little leg but stay mostly covered for the season.

Seal your look with a Letter Pouch (online Thursday!) for a Very Aerie approach to winter whites. Cozy up, cuties!

How to Make Halloween Treats

In honor of National Candy Corn Day we asked Annie, the baker behind the yummy Bakin You Crazy Instagram account,  to show us how to whip together her favorite candy corn treat! Read on to learn how to whip up her sweet and spooky recipe.

Triple Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies

How to Make Halloween Treats

Yields 20-24 normal size cookies or 6-8 jumbo cookies

1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 table spoons milk
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup white chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup candy corn (plus more to place on top, optional)

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 1

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 45 seconds or until completely melted.
  3. Add sugar to butter. Beat on low until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla, eggs and milk to butter and sugar mixture. Mix on low until thorough combined.
  5. In separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, pudding, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Slowly, pour flour mixture into butter mixture while beating on low.
  7. Add chocolate chips and mix. (DISCLAIMER: You can add candy corn to cookie dough now or directly after cookies are removed from oven. The latter prevents unpredictable cookie shapes due to melted candy corn.

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 2

  1. Place heaping tables spoons of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (DISCLAIMER: If candy corn was mixed into dough, make sure no candy corn is in direct contact with the baking sheet. This will result in deformed cookies. Instead, shape dough so candy corn is on top or inside the ball of cookie dough.)
  2. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on oven. Cookies should look gooey and soft. Do not over bake!!
  3. For picture perfect cookies, additional chocolate chips and candy corn can be placed on warm cookies with a slight push.
  4. The cookies should remain soft and fudgy when cool… If they last that long!
  5. Voilà! Delicious Halloween treats!
