Knowledge is Power! Bright Pink’s Tips to be Proactive About Your Health

At Aerie, we are so excited to be partnering with Bright Pink, a nonprofit organization that focuses on the early detection and prevention of breast and ovarian cancers in young women. The organization was founded by Lindsay Avner, a pretty powerful Aerie girl herself, who started Bright Pink while she was in her early 20s. Lindsay was frustrated by the lack of resources for young women of all levels of risk, so she set out to make her own!

Bright Pink’s mission is to help girls get the tools and information they need to be proactive about their health today. Check out the videos below as Lindsay sets the record straight on some common misconceptions, and gives her tips for being your healthiest self, right now. Knowledge is power!

Assess Your Risk

How do you know your personal risk for developing breast or ovarian cancer? Bright Pink has a 5-minute quiz that will help you determine just that. Take the Assess Your Risk Quiz today to find out your risk, and some lifestyle choices you can make to reduce it.

Is It Time for a Checkup?

You only need to see a doctor when you’re sick, right? Wrong! Lindsay explains how often you should be seeing your doctor to keep your breasts and ovaries healthy, and some questions you should be asking each time you get a checkup.

Ovarian Health 101

So, we hear a lot about our breasts at this time of year. But what’s the deal with our ovaries? Watch below as Lindsay explains the basics about ovarian health, and signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer to look out for.

Know Your Normal

One of the biggest myths of all is that there’s a “normal” when it comes to your body. Every body is different, and your body and breasts will naturally change over time. The key is to know YOUR normal. Lindsay gives some tips for checking in with your body below. Another great reminder? Text PINK to 59227 to receive monthly reminders to check your breasts!

Xoxo,

Aerie

#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Boho Tops

One trend we can’t get enough of this fall is boho. From flowy skirts to buckled booties and tiered tops, our inspiration when we get dressed is the wild beauty of boho fashion.

We asked three style bloggers, Katelyn from The Skinny Blonde Girl, Nicole from Dainty Girl and Alex from I’m a Little to style our boho-inspired tops in their own way.

What inspired Katelyn’s style:
“I loved the flirty shape and print of the top, and couldn’t help but mix it with a similarly coloured Aerie scarf. It’s lightweight and perfect for layering, but also stands on its own as a sleeveless tank.”

What inspired Nicole’s look:
When I first saw the Crocheted Empire Waist Tank, I immediately though of summer music festival style. It would’ve looked perfect with denim cut-offs or over a little floral dress. Alas, fall is officially here, so I dusted off my transitional faves and styled this boho top for the season! First of all, this top is lace, so it’s totally see-through but if you’re layering it under a blazer, I think it’s fine to wear it with a bra in a contrasting color. I chose a lacy black bralette to wear underneath and layered a long camel blazer on top with a layered gold statement necklace. I love this combination of earth tones contrasted by dark indigo denim and black suede ankle booties. It’s the perfect look for Sunday brunch or a casual date night.

What inspired Alex’s look:
I love this shirt! It’s the perfect piece to layer for the endless summer we’ve been having in Toronto. Since it tends to be a bit cooler in the mornings, I simply paired it with a light cargo jacket and my go-to AEO denim shorts. I love a boho look with low-heeled neutral booties and a bright pair of sunnies to finish off the look. Add my favorite accessories and signature beach waves done up in this season’s trendy ponytail and you’ve got yourself a look that takes you from boho in the city to festival chic.”

Music Monday: Aerie’s Fall Playlist

Much to our chagrin, summer is exiting and fall has officially arrived. But that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop bumping all of the party bangers and sexy R&B cuts that we’ve been loving year round. So, with our fall playlist, we’re featuring the likes of Jhene Aiko, Jessie J. and the adorable Ariana Grande. But we’re also throwing it back to our fave Baby Girl, Aaliyah with her anthem, “Back & Forth”. Along with what we’ve decided is our new anthem, Meghan Trainor’s “All About that Bass.” So addicting that one.

Leave your troubles behind and groove to these empowering jams with us!
