How To: Throw the Perfect End of Summer Party!

Let’s face it, it’s never easy saying goodbye to summer. It’s like saying au revoir to your favorite Aerie bra. No one REALLY wants to do it, but there comes a time when it must be done.

So we figure, why not have one last hurrah? We’ll tell you how to make your end of summer party the one your friends will be talking about all winter long. Yes, we said the ‘W’ word. Too soon? Ok, maybe a little.

First and foremost, you’ll need the perfect Aerie bikini. After all, you should be the life of the party, right?

Our Bridget Bikini Top and Hi-Rise Hipster Bottom definitely fit the bill. Between the soft foam padding and silky stretch nylon, you’ll be comfortable enough to wear this number all night long. And did we mention how much we love this floral print? Adorbs.

Once you’ve decided on the perfect suit, be sure to pick up a few layering essentials. Our Swing Tank, Fleece Shorts and Henley Popover are perfect to throw on after a quick dip in the pool. And don’t forget to grab your favorite pair of sunnies and a worn in baseball cap to help keep the rays at bay.

Take full advantage of the last few weeks of warm weather by indulging in our favorite summer staple, s’mores. Ok, so we may be a week late on National S’mores Day, but really, who’s paying attention?

Gather all your friends around a mini bonfire, grab a bag of marshmallows, and start roasting to perfection! xo

What inspired Nifesimi’s look:
As a student, I love being comfortable when going to classes or walking around campus. Boyfriend jeans and moccasins are two of my go-to pieces for school. I really like the versatility of this outfit, it can also be worn to a get-together, a beach party or on Labor Day.
