Back to School Essentials: The Jogger

If there’s one style you absolutely need to have in your closet for Back-to-School, it’s the jogger! Natalie, associate buyer for Aerie bottoms, explains why they are her favorite trend for the season. We’ll be rocking this as a comfy (but still stylish!) alternative to our everyday jeans!

7 things we love…

music, books, travel, foodie, aeostyle

Image Source: 1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 7. |

Welcome to this week’s edition of 7 Things We Love! Get inspired by all the things inspiring US right now, from what we’re reading and eating to what we’re wearing and listening to. Let us know what you think about our picks in the comments—and give us yours, too!

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: OUR NEW VINTAGE DENIM COLLECTION
Here’s the thing. We really, really, REALLY love jeans. And we’re always coming up with ways to put new twists on all your favorite staples. To that end, we just introduced our new Vintage Denim Collection, which is crafted from our very best fabrics for superior quality and durability. With details like destruction, tinting, sanding and nicking, these jeans are made to look and feel like the favorite pair you’ve had for years. Find Vintage now in some of your favorite fits, from Jegging for girls to Slim Straight for guys.

WHAT WE’RE EATING: BLUEBERRY SALTED CARAMEL POPSICLES
There really isn’t a better way to feel refreshed and happy in the heat of summer than with a popsicle, #amiright? We’re loving this take on the hot day treat from The Healthy Maven, which takes antioxidant-rich (and always delicious) blueberries and pairs them with a gluten-free recipe for homemade popsicles. (The caramel? It’s actually made out of dates!)

WHAT WE’RE READING: SINNER BY MAGGIE STIEFVATER
This is the latest book in Stiefvater’s The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and just like all the rest, WE. ARE. HOOKED. This series focuses on a pack of werewolves who are human in the summertime and turn into wolves in the wintertime. (It’s WAY better than Twilight, we promise.) Sinner centers in on former rockstar Cole and his girlfriend Isabel (and it’s completely and totally addictive). Read the whole series. You won’t be disappointed. (Oh, and you might want your boyfriend to turn into a werewolf.)

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: STEP UP ALL IN
The newest movie to hit the Step Up franchise promises to be bigger and better than ever before. More tricks, more dancing, more of the faces from the previous movies that you’ve come to know and love (plus some So You Think You Can Dance favorites/alumni/obsessions like Twitch and Cyrus). Bring on the poppin’ and lockin’.

WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: SIA’S CHANDELIER MUSIC VIDEO
Okay, we have to admit, this was a tough one. We’ve had both this music video and Pharrell’s Come Get It Bae playing on repeat in the office (and our homes) for the past week and a half. But Sia’s got the edge thanks to the fact that she used 11-year-old dancer/wunderkind/all around awesome Maddie Ziegler (yes, one of the girls from Dance Moms) as the star. (The song is pretty awesome, too.) We can’t get enough of Ziegler’s creepy/cool dance moves in this haunting video.

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: MESS IS MINE BY VANCE JOY
Australian singer/songwriter Vance Joy (AKA James Keogh) has officially stolen our music-loving hearts with this song from his latest album, “Dream Your Life Away.” Joy combines folk with pop to create a unique sound that we find ourselves listening to over and over (and over) again.

WHERE WE’RE GOING: MIAMI
From the art-covered Wynwood Walls (where we shot our spring break campaign) to the ridiculously gorgeous sandy beaches and nothing-like-it-anywhere-else nightlife, Miami’s got plenty for you to do and see. Go surfing in South Beach, get a little nature happy at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, hit the clubs… just make sure you come back with a tan.

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Relaxed Straight

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.

We asked menswear blogger Anthony from Closet Freaks to style our Relaxed Straight Jean. It’s our most comfortable jean, now better than ever.

What inspired Anthony’s Look:
Lately I’ve been a fan of baggier jeans for the extra comfort they provide due to extra room in the legs. They kind of have a sporty-street wear feel to them, so I decided to play up the athletic theme with a varsity jacket, a 3/4 sleeve baseball t-shirt, and some running sneakers. I chose the bright orange varsity jacket as my statement piece and kept the shirt and shoes subdued in darker hues for balance. With the jeans, I chose to pinch-roll them at the bottom for a nice tight fit at the ankle. This is a fun styling trick I picked up when wearing looser fitting jeans so you can achieve that slouchy look without getting those frayed hems that come from stepping on your pants. Overall, I’d say this outfit makes a great weekend look for fall or even for the first week of school.

Meet Anthony:
Anthony lives and works in New York City as a structural engineer by day and a blogger by night. Much like his seemingly separate jobs, his style is a cool contrast of bold & trendy with subtle & classic.

How To: Throw A Girls’ Night In

Ok ladies, let’s get REAL. Whether your plans fell through or you just need to unwind, there are few better things in life than an epic girl’s night in. Yes, we said it.

Whether you’re the girl that loves delicate lace and pastels or the girl that goes for comfort above all, we have something for everyone.
