One More Unretouched Beauty…Sonoya Mizuno

Born in Tokyo and raised in London, this Royal Ballet School graduate is the new face of #AerieREAL! Sonoya’s inner strength, talent and beauty have taken her from the ballet stage to the big screen, where she debuted in thriller Ex Machina and the soon to be released films High Strung and La La Land. Read on to learn more about our newest #AerieREAL girl!

How long have you been dancing?

Way too long! I’ve been dancing for 20 years. Whoa! I used to dance really professionally in ballet companies. That’s a lot different than what I do now. Now I just dance, I take class for myself, and then I do videos and smaller projects here and there.

What do you love most about dancing?

I love the feeling of physical expression through your body and the connection that you have with the music. It’s the most cathartic thing I experience in my life.

How did you start modeling and acting?

I was very lucky when I was dancing to also be exposed to the modeling industry, because it gave me another avenue to explore. When I was living in London or Tokyo or other big cities, I had the chance to dance and start acting and do modeling, so it was more invigorating for me. Now when I dance, I’m sure I’m not technically as good as I used to be, but I’m really doing it from an authentic place.

What music are you currently listening to?

FKA Twigs.

Lover or fighter?

Fighter!

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

India.

Who would you go with?

All my brothers and sisters.

 Breakfast in bed or dinner out?

That’s really hard! Can’t I have both?

What makes you really laugh?

My friends and family.

What is one thing you think the world needs more of?

One thing? There’s so many things! Communication.

How did you feel when you found out you wouldn’t be retouched?

First I thought, that’s a really cool concept. Then I went into, what about my legs and this and that? After I got over that, I think it’s really empowering. It’s a great message for younger girls to look up to.

What makes you #AerieREAL?

Being who you are is being #AerieREAL. My look isn’t defined by a particular place or country, and I’m really proud of that. I’m so many things. I’m just me.

Dancing, modeling, acting. What’s next for you?

Acting! But dancing, modeling, acting, they’re all who I am, so they will continue to be all of who I am.

What to Wear Christmas Morning

Christmas morning is a magical time filled with opening presents and spending quality time with family. Caitlin from Dash of Darling invites us into her home and shares her Christmas traditions. What to Wear Christmas Morning

“Merry Christmas, darlings! Ever since I was little my family has always shared the same Christmas morning tradition and today I am excited to share it with you. First, I just wanted to say that I believe traditions are an important part of the holidays. They are a powerful way to bring the family together to connect and make lasting memories. Our holiday is all that more special thanks to our yearly yuletide traditions.”What to Wear Christmas Morning What to Wear Christmas Morning

“When I was younger I could never sleep a wink on Christmas eve. I would always wake up in the middle of the night crazed with impatient excitement waiting for my mom to come into my room to tell me it was ok to come upstairs by the tree. As I have gotten older, I prefer to sleep in just a little longer, but one thing has remained the same… I love to be comfortable (yet cute for those Christmas morning jammy photos). My family has always held the tradition of opening up one present on Christmas eve after we watch a holiday movie and read stories from the Bible. This present is usually, you guessed it, new jammies. This year, I wanted something cute and cozy that I could wear year-round, so I opted for these super comfortable Aerie classic joggers, lace bralette, satin tank, knit scarf and soft socks. I feel super relaxed and snug as a bug.”What to Wear Christmas Morning

How To Wear the All White Trend

With a new season officially in our midst (okay, minus the snow), we’re all about the color white. Going monochrome can be tricky, especially with a color that’s typically taboo in the cooler months. At AEO, we like to ignore that fashion rule and take this look to the next level. Today, we’re showing you how to wear all white without looking like a snowman. Our secret? Accessories! Breaking up a monochrome outfit with fun additions like strappy bralettes, knit beanies & tall boots keep the look on-trend and fresh without feeling overwhelming. Check out our two all white looks below!

Keep it cool in all white #AEOSTYLE: Go for an unexpected look by pairing our destroyed white Tomgirl Jean with a white puffer vest. A long-sleeved tee underneath the vest – in white, of course – keeps the outfit seasonably appropriate. A lacy, strappy bralette adds a feminine touch to the outfit – choose any shade you’d like for a fun pop of color. Our shoe of choice is a Birkenstock since temps are warmer than usual right now, but if you’re stuck in the cold, wear a great cozy sock in a neutral color, too. Channel a snow bunny vibe by finishing the look with a furry, chunky knit beanie.
How To Wear It: All White

Aerie Strappy Racerback Bralette

Channel boho vibes in all white lace: If you’re already sick of Winter (even though it’s just started), try wearing all white to transition into an early Spring. A pretty lace dress with bell sleeves has a romantic feel that’s perfect for a Winter date night. Paired with a statement necklace that won’t overpower the dress, this is an all white style that will land you on the fashion “do” list. Complete the outfit with knee high boots in a neutral color and boho details like lace up details.

How To Style The Bell Sleeve Dress With Officially Quigley

The winter months can be beautiful but sometimes the shorter days and colder weather make us crave a little Spring. One product that’s budding with color is our Bell Sleeve dress. With beautiful boho-inspired sleeves and a floral pattern that’s bursting with light, it’s a must-have piece for winter. Quigley from Officially Quigley styled this romantic piece in a bohemian vibe. Get to know Quigley and the inspiration behind her #AEOSTYLE below.

What Inspired Quigley’s Look: “I styled this dress with a faux fur vest to give it that extra ‘cozy’ factor. I love wearing faux fur around the holidays because it just makes everything more festive! I also paired the look with a super dark purple lip and a large brimmed matching hat. Voila! A holiday look, for a night full of lights, carols and sleigh bells!”
