#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Original Boot

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

Jamal from Style Society Guy styled our Original Boot Jean.

What inspired Jamal’s look:
Like most people, fall is my favorite season. It’s the season of ultimate versatility when it comes to clothing options. The best part? You can still wear some of your favorites from the summer; just pair them differently. This ikat shirt was perfect for the summer but as it gets chilly I can throw on this orange varsity jacket and roll up the sleeves.

What to Wear Under Your AEO: Racerback Tank

What goes under your AE? Aerie, of course!

Jenny Altman, our Fit & Style Expert, shows you how to wear and pair this amazing AEO Boho Embroidered tank (similar style here) with her favorite Aerie pieces. The racerback design, deep v neckline, and low-cut armholes are a challenge when it comes to finding the right Aerie bra, but Jenny’s here to provide her quick tips! Spoiler alert: Although the Charley bra would be a perfect “no-show” option under this top, Jenny suggests wearing our Hide and Peek Plunge Bralette as a cute “accessory” to peek out. It totally completes the laid-back look.

Watch below for Jenny’s tips on outfitting this AE tank with Aerie pieces!

 

Look out for more tips on how to wear your favorite Aerie styles with your AE tops, bottoms and dresses, coming soon! Want to know more of Jenny’s quick tips? Email her your fit and style questions at AskJenny@ae.com, or tweet your question @Aerie with #AskJenny!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you’ve already began packing or you’re still anxiously scrolling through Pinterest to find the perfect back-to-school looks, it’s not too late to pick up those last minute must-haves. Leave the stress behind and let us show you how easy it is to ace cute and comfortable!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

We think you’ll agree that one of the best parts of going off to college is the freedom. Not just the freedom to stay up until midnight, eating oreos and laughing with your roomie (okay, that’s awesome, too) but the freedom to dress how you want, when you want. You have the rest of your life to be an adult, so for now rock that effortlessly chic look like it’s going out of style.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you plan to spend afternoons doing yoga on the quad or lounging with your besties, our Crop Yoga Pant is something you can’t live without.  Between the soft stretch cotton jersey and lace print waistband, you’ll own multiple pairs by the end of the semester. Yes, they’re that good. Pair with our über-comfortable Seamless Bra to achieve that level of zen you’ll need right before your intense mid-term.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

For all you busy fashionistas running (literally!) from one class to the next, you’re going to love the Best Basics Shop. Throw on our Hide & Peek Plunge Bralette, Scoop Neck Tank and Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt to achieve that simple, yet stylish #OOTD. And the look wouldn’t be complete without our Jogger – a skinny fit that can be dressed up or down. If that doesn’t sound like sweatpant bliss, we don’t know what does.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Once your #OOTD is picked out, you’ll want to add a little something sweet. Our Hidden Love line of Body Lotion, Body Cream, Body Mist and Perfume offer a pretty mix of fresh fruits, sensual florals and creamy vanilla. Grab a Rollerball to throw in your bag for those late night study sessions!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Every girl on-the-go will appreciate our adorable Baggu Backpack! With its floral print, double strap and (washing machine-friendly!) cotton canvas, it offers the perfect harmony of cute and functional. Now all that’s left to do is grab your monogrammed notebooks and head to class in style!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

After a long day of class, you deserve to unwind in style. We may be a little biased, but our sleep sets are some of the absolute cutest around. Let’s start with our Softest Modal Bralette and Mini Boyfrief. Not only are they made of the softest (you guessed it!) modal, they have the sweetest scalloped lace trim. Throw on a Sleep Top and a pair of Boxers, or one of our Softest Sleep Robes, to drift off to dreamland.

Now that your dorm essentials have been picked out, are you ready for class to begin? The answer: You were born ready. Good luck – we know you’re going to do great! xo

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Vintage Boot

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

One of our favorite fashion bloggers, Cara from A Fashion Love Affair, is inspiring us with her look in our Vintage Boot Jean.

What inspired Cara’s look:
Wide leg jeans are back ladies and gentlemen, and I am so excited about it!

My favorite way to style wide leg jeans is by tucking in my top – it offsets the volume of the jeans and is instantly flattering. Pairing denim with denim is effortlessly cool, and adding big shades and gold accents dresses up the look to make it city -ready.

#AskJenny Question of the Week: What to Wear Under White

With Labor Day Weekend quickly approaching, we’re scrambling to figure out how to get the most wear out of our favorite white pieces while the sun’s still shining. Luckily, Jenny Altman, fit and style expert for Aerie, is here with her pro tips for pieces that are perfect under your white jeans, shorts, tops, and LWD’s (Little White Dresses!). Her advice is here just in time to start planning the perfect look for the holiday weekend, or that end of summer party you’re throwing!

Q: What are the best pieces to wear under my white clothes? I don’t want my bra or undies to show through!

A:  What to wear under white…NOT WHITE!

Why not white? It’s just too bright under white clothing. If your goal is to keep your intimates “intimate”, then you really need to go with a nude tone. This color could be the actual color nude, but could also be a brown, beige or even light pink, depending on your skin tone. Keep in mind, that no matter what your skin tone (even if you are darker skinned or super fair), the color nude will always be better than white. The nude blends into any skin tone better than a white or a black.

For bras, if you want to show off a colorful piece under your white top, then go for it! If you’re looking for a piece that will stay hidden, however, Aerie carries bras in a range of nude shades, from Fair to Dark Maple.

Basic doesn’t have to be boring…shop a rainbow of nude tones in our Best Basics Shop!

For bras, I love Sunnie, Charley, and the Lace Bare Bra in Natural Nude.

Our Best Basics Shop is a great place to look for bras and undies that come in multiple nude shades, to find the best match for your specific skin tone.

For undies, it’s as much about the color as it is about the undie design itself. Go for the most flat, seamless option you can find. You don’t want heavy lines showing through.

Our Vintage Lace undies come in multiple fits and nude tones, and the lace is smooth so the texture doesn’t peek through. These undies work great under white or light clothing that isn’t super fitted.

set11_8_14_14_WHAT_TO_WEAR_UNDER_WHITE19196

The super smooth Vintage Lace collection is a great quick fix for minimizing visible undie lines!

For a TOTALLY hidden look, the Outta-Sight undie in Buff is the best. No lines and no color to be seen with these! The undies come in a range of fits from thong to boybrief, so pick the amount of coverage that’s most comfortable for you and works best with the type of clothing you’re wearing.

set11_8_14_14_WHAT_TO_WEAR_UNDER_WHITE19167

Our Outta-Sight collection is your best secret weapon!

With these tips, you’ll be ready to rock your favorite white styles to celebrate the end of summer!
