Back to Real Life

1

Ok Aerie girls, it’s time to get real. Summer has officially come to an end and that means Fall style is upon us. That’s right. Start packing away those shorts & swimsuits, because it’s leggings & layers from here on out! Our Back to Real Life lookbook proves that Fall never looked so good.

5

Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun with prints. Our Hi-Rise Printed Legging is sure to turn heads on campus with its pretty floral pattern and perfect berry palette. Complete the look with our Legging T-Shirt, Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt and Slouchy Beanie.

Fall means a jam-packed social (and academic, of course) calendar, filled with pumpkin spice latte dates and late night study sessions. When you get a minute to relax, being comfortable is an absolute must. Our Woven Bomber and Scoop Neck Tank is the perfect pairing to catch up on the latest Aerie playlist and de-stress.

Running errands between classes? Throw on our Skinny Jogger or Hi-Rise Printed Legging to check things off your to-do list in style.

Cruise around campus in ultimate comfort with our Lounge Sweatpant. The softest stretch fabric is perfect for yoga or meeting up with your BFFs for lunch. Throw on a Long Sleeve T-Shirt for a pop of color and bring along our Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt just in case it gets chilly.

If your back-to-school style is a bit edgier, the Print legging in Charcoal Sky is going to be your new best friend.  Slip on our Softest Modal Bralette and pair with a Swing Tank to take care free to a whole new level.

Music Monday: Strange Talk Interview

Somewhere between indie pop and electronic dance music sits the stylings of Melbourne based band Strange Talk who just so happen to be our featured act this lovely Music Monday. We sat down with the multi-talented Gerard Sidhu to chat about the band’s formation and how they met. Get to know more about Strange Talk’s unique live show after the jump. And be sure to check out their new record, “Cast Away.”

AEO:  Did you guys all meet in Australia?

GS:  We all met in Melbourne. Steve, myself and Travis, our drummer, are all from a country town about two hours outside of Melbourne. And Gillian is originally from Tazmania. But everyone, after school, moved to Melbourne and we’ve all been based there for the last six or seven years, I think.

AEO:  Can you tell me a little bit about how Strange Talk was formed?

GS:  So basically, Steve and myself were more of a production duo. So I had a studio and was doing a lot more, kind of, dance tracks and remixes. And Steve and I met out one night while I was DJing at a club. And we just kind of got along at the same pace in music. We started chatting and he is actually a classically trained violinist.

So we got to talking. And I’ve always had a love for strings in an arrangement. So I asked him if he’d come in and record some live strings on a remix I was making. So he came in and we got along really well. And from that point, we just started working together on different projects and that just turned into Strange Talk.

We put out, like, five songs on Facebook, ahem, Myspace [laughs]. And we had a great response from labels that we didn’t expect. And all the sudden they were asking for a live show that we didn’t have. And that’s how we met Trav and Gil.

AEO:  That’s really interesting that it started out as a production duo and then you took it to a live show. What was your strategy there?

GS:  Having produced and mixed all the original music, we knew it inside out. And we knew what we could play live, and what we could put on a backing track. And because of my history with studios, I figured out how to set it all up.

So we just kind of went backwards, everything that we could play live we took out; all lead vocals, guitar, bass, snare, etc all came out. And anything that we can’t humanly play live, just because you know, you need 20 people on stage to do it, we put on a backing track.

AEO:  So what was your first live show like?

GS:  It was a long time ago now.

AEO:  How long ago?

GS:  It would’ve been like five years ago. And we were nervous as anything! I was feeling sick to my stomach, I think we all felt that. But it went really well. We were obviously nervous. We weren’t engaged as much with the crowd like we are now. And we were just focused on a playing a perfect show. And we did. There were no mess-ups.

#AskJenny Question of the Week: Why Do I Need a Full Coverage Bra?

You might be thinking that full coverage bras are just for the larger-chested ladies. But we have Aerie’s fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, and Kerstyn, Merchandise Manager of Aerie bras, here to set the record straight!

Watch below for Jenny and Kerstyn’s tips and tricks on all things full coverage.

Jenny’s take on full coverage? Full coverage bras are really a great t-shirt bra option for girls of all sizes! In fact, it’s your breast shape, rather than your size, that’s the more important factor to consider when deciding what level of coverage is right for you. Full coverage bras, like Aerie’s best selling Sunnie Lightly Lined bra, are especially good choices for girls that are fuller in the top of the breast.

Katie Lightly Lined Bra

The full coverage Katie Lightly Lined Bra is an Aerie girl’s best friend…and has the 5-star reviews to prove it!

Want to hear more? Check out why Jenny thinks every girl needs a trusty pushup bra in her life.
