#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Skinny

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.

Freddy from menswear blog Blue Perk styled our Skinny Jean. Rugged denim and our slimmest fit yet come together to make this jean a modern essential.

What inspired Freddy’s look:
When I think back to school style, I instantly think of shoes and a backpack. These two accessories will be used the most throughout the year and will make an instant statement the first day of class. This is why I chose a backpack and a pair of shoes that compliment each other with their red and blue color contrast. Both of which could be worn all year with blue jeans.

How to Wear: Jogger Pants

This fall we’re mixing street style and comfort like never before. Let’s start with the jogger pant. Chances are you’ve either seen it or you’ve heard about it, but the real question is, have you rocked it yet? If the answer is no, you’re missing out. With its relaxed fit, drawstring waist, and cuffed bottom it offers the perfect balance of yes, you guessed it, style and comfort. Pair with a Plaid Button Down Shirt and Black Coated Denim Jacket for a night out with friends or throw on a Pocket Baseball T-Shirt and Reebok ZQuick Sneaker to run errands around town. Either way, the jogger is ideal for the guy on the go. Have we convinced you yet?

dudettes

Mostly A’s: Lace Waist Boybrief
Sometimes you’re a little soft-spoken and reserved. You’re more at home snuggled on the couch with your favorite DVD than out at the clubs or the Friday night game. You love pretty pastels and cute prints, like these pale pink undies with lace trim.

Mostly B’s: Signature Lace Boybrief
You march to the beat of your own drum. You might be just as happy listening to the latest indie rock tune as you are at an art gallery with your friends or watching a documentary on Netflix. You like your classics with a bit of a twist, like these bright pink lace undies with a waistband inspired by your boyfriend’s boxers.

Mostly C’s: Lace Trim Printed Thong
Who’s the life of the party? YOU ARE! You can’t think of anything better than a night out with friends at the latest club or restaurant (and of course you’re the center of attention). You frequently reach for pieces like these bold animal print undies.

 

dudes
Mostly A’s: Beer 30 Low Rise Trunk
Who’s the life of the party? YOU ARE! You can’t think of anything better than a night out with friends or playing varsity football (and of course you’re the quarterback and team captain). You want your underwear to make a statement, which is why you love wearing trunks with bold, notice-me prints.

Mostly B’s: Striped Boxer
Shy, quiet, reserved, super nice… all words that have been used to describe your personality in the past. People might think you’re a little #normcore, but really, you just like to stick with what works—like a great pair of pinstriped boxers.

Mostly C’s: Pickle Boxer
You march to the beat of your own drum. You might be just as happy listening to the latest indie rock tune as you are at an art gallery with your friends or watching a documentary on Netflix. No one quite has your sense of style, so you always start with boxers with interesting prints (like pickles).

Extra bonus!… Mens Underwear are 3 for $25 and gal’s don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of our 8/$26.50 Undie Bundle. Don’t forget to check out aerie’s undie bundle offer too!  One day only!

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Hi-Rise Artist

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. Shannon from Upbeat Soles caught our attention with her amazing #AEOSTYLE photos.

We asked her to style our Hi-Rise Artist jean, an undeniably sexy and effortlessly versatile fit, now designed with a must-have hi rise waist.

What inspired Shannon’s look: I absolutely love that the flared jeans have made a comeback! They are so flattering and make your legs look long and lean. I love anything with a boho or 70’s vibe, so I cannot get enough of the Hi-Rise Artist Jeans. To play up the boho feel of the jeans, I paired them with a relaxed fit peasant top. The light material of the peasant top makes it perfect for the fall transition that will be here before we know it. I accessorized with a long turquoise pendant necklace and a tie-dye headband to add in some color. I finished this look with an embroidered tote, perfect for all your back to school belongings, and a peep toe chunky heel. final13 final9 final6 final1 final7 final2 final4 final3 final11 Meet Shannon: I am a born and raised Florida girl that is a medical professional by day, fashion blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweatheart and we are parents to a crazy Aussie mix and kitty. I created Upbeat Soles as a way to express my fashion juices that are held in by wearing scrubs most of the days. I also believe that fashion doesn’t need to cost an arm and leg and that you can look fabulous on any budget!

#AskJenny Question of the Week: Pushup Bras for Smaller Cup Sizes

This week, our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, tackles a bra dilemma we hear time and time again – for smaller chested girls looking for a pushup, what’s the best bra to choose for a natural look? Jenny talks some of her top picks below!

measuring_tape_3

Jenny’s here to with tips to help every girl find her perfect fit!

Q: Hi Jenny! I’ve been trying to find the right Aerie push-up bra for me. I wear a 32A and need a push-up that fits but doesn’t gap. Which Aerie push-ups would you recommend?

A: I love your question! I am also a 32A, and I have had great luck with push-up bras from Aerie. The Ella Gel happens to be my favorite.

You can use our bra guide and sort by size to find all the push-up bras available in size 32A. The best thing is that in our bra guide, you can see bras in your cup size. This feature is so helpful in finding the right amount of coverage and lift for you! Our A-cup model is a real A, so you can see how each bra looks on an A-cup.

Since you know your size, it really is a question of which style bra fits you best (whether it’s push-up bra or not) depending on your breast fullness/shape. Some girls do better with full coverage, others with less. If you are a smaller, or less “full” A, then try a bra with less coverage like a balconette or demi-cup. I think you would like the Charley, Lexi, or the Ella Gel (or the Emma if you’re looking for some serious push!). None of these are too full coverage for a smaller cup size, and they all give great lift.

Also, FYI, any time you wear a bra as a racerback or criss-cross, you get even MORE push-up. So convertible or multi-way options like Charley could be an especially great choice!


Gapping is another problem many girls of all cup sizes may experience with certain bra styles. Luckily, it can also be a super quick fix! Check out Jenny’s pro advice on the blog for all the deets.

Xoxo,

Aerie

MUSIC MONDAY: AEO UP NEXT: DESERT NOISES

AEO_UP_NEXT__HEADER_800X400

 

For our second installment of AEO Up Next, we called up Kyle Henderson of the band Desert Noises to talk about the great state of Utah, Alabama beaches and life on the road. The twangish, indie-rock quartet recently released their LP, “27 Ways,” which is something of a tribute to their roots in Utah coupled with their life on the road. Get to know more about Kyle and listen to a track off of “27 Ways” after the jump.

AEO:  Were you born and raised in Utah?

Kyle Henderson:  I was,  yeah. Most of us were. Brennan was actually born in California and then we’ve all lived here for most of our lives.

AEO:  What’s Utah’s music scene like?

Henderson:  It’s actually really good. It’s all sorts of different stuff. But yeah, there’s a really good music scene in my hometown of Provo.

AEO:  How has the scenery of Utah or the music scene itself inspired your work?

Henderson: I think a lot of it is inspired by the surrounding nature. How this place is, you’re surrounded by mountains and kind of just trapped in, ya know? It’s also a really hard place to leave because it feels so closed. And the culture is so tight-knit and everything, that I’d definitely say that the beauty of this place plays a huge part.

AEO:  Can you tell us a little bit about “27 Ways”? How long did it take to create and what was the process like?

Henderson:  We were working on it for probably about two years before we started recording it. And it was basically like in between tours, we’d be writing new songs and really trying to focus on that. We’d take them out on the road and change them as we were touring. So it became an album that came from being on the road and living on tour. We’re on tour a lot. So we kind of have to do things a different way by trying out new ideas on the road.

AEO:  Interesting. That’s almost counter to what you described Utah as being like: an insular sort of culture. You created this album in completely different circumstances. Were you just traveling the States?

Henderson:  Just the States. We haven’t played outside the states yet.

AEO:  It’s coming soon, I’m sure.

Henderson:  Yup.

AEO:  I know you guys have been billed on a few festivals. Which ones were your favorites so far?

Henderson:  Oh man. They’re all so good. They’re all so different. Recently we just played this festival called Hangout Festival, which is on the beach in Alabama.

AEO:  Alabama has a beach?!

Henderson:  Yeah, you’re literally in the sand while you’re playing.

AEO:  That’s awesome!

Henderson:  Yeah. So that was very epic.

AEO: Can you tell us what the one album is that truly affected your path in music?

Henderson: I would say Led Zepplin III.

AEO:  Good one. So, festivals aside, what smaller show was your favorite to play?

Henderson:  I guess what comes to mind is Lincoln, Nebraska. For some reason, that place really just gravitated towards us. And so every time we go there it’s just like a riot. That kind of place was like our first show experience where it was like, whoa, there’s people actually coming to the shows. I think that that was a big key point in our music career.

Now that you’ve gotten to know Kyle and the Desert Noises a little better, channel their look with #AEOStyle!
