How To: Style Your Blanket Scarf 3 Ways

As the temperatures cool down and the leaves fall, we only have one thing on our minds…the Blanket Scarf. This must-have accessory is extra large, super soft and perfect for Fall to Winter weather.

Three of our favorite bloggers show us how they style this oh-so-cozy staple below. Show us how you style it by sharing photos on Instagram and Twitter with #AerieREAL.

Meet Alex:

When she is not blogging, you can find her watching romantic comedies (shamelessly) with her husband and dog, dreaming up her next blog post or hunting for the best red lipstick.

What Inspired Alex’s look:
Consider this cozy scarf your new autumn staple! Imagine being able to wrap a soft, but adorable, blanket around you, that is exactly what this scarf. The scarf is not lacking in size so I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit structured and fitted. Perfect for everyday with a pair of your favorite jeans or dress it up for those chilly fall evenings!

What Inspired Jessica’s look:
Nashville is holding out on full blown Fall. Over the weekend I could have easily sat by the pool in my swimsuit (would have been nice if I wasn’t grading a 5 foot stack of papers instead!) So in order to ease my way in, I am mixing up my own transitional style. White jeans, gray accents, & a blanket scarf? Sounds good to me! Speaking of this blanket scarf – it IS the size of a blanket, & might be the most fabulous scarf I have ever worn!

What inspired Eleni’s look:
Fall is one of my favourite seasons for fashion. I absolutely love the layering, scarves and booties that compliment the cooling temperatures. This look is totally practical for your every day life but when I knew I was heading on the highway for a couple of hours I still wanted to look cute but feel comfy. I love that I am able to dress it up or down and the versatility of it makes it a must have item for every girls’ closet.

4 Days of Nighties

We can’t get enough of Aerie’s new nighties! Our favorite part? Not only are they soft and comfortable for sleep, but they’ve also been crafted with a fabric that’s thick and sturdy enough to wear out of the house! If it’s one thing we love, it’s a look that can take us through all 24 hours of our busy days.

Our Aerie buyers rocked their nighties for a day at the office to show their favorite styling tips and tricks. Read on to learn 4 ways to style your nightie from a few of our favorite girls in the know.

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Look 1: The Laws of Layering

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Natalie shows us that it’s all about the layers for fall. A chambray shirt under an army jacket with a cozy snood is perfect for unpredictable November weather.

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Don’t forget your over-the-knee socks and boots to complete the look!

What Aerie girl can resist a pretty pop of lace?

Shop Natalie’s Look: Nightie | Open Knit Circle Scarf | AEO Chambray Shirt | Socks

Look 2: Keep It Simple

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Natia’s look shows that A+ style doesn’t need to be complicated. Her slouchy cardi lets the nightie totally take center-stage here, and the open sweater shows off the pretty lace neckline detail.

A neutral outer layer helps a fun print pop!

Shop Natia’s Look: Nightie | Aerie Sweater Cardigan

Look 3: Cozy Coverage

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Katie layers on a wrap sweater for a style with just a little more coverage, and adds a few accessories to the mix. Extra points for the navy polish that matches her nightie!

And again, over-the-knee socks for a fun and cozy detail! (Note to self: must. have. all. the. socks.)

Shop Katie’s Look: Nightie | Socks

Look 4: Urban Edge

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Mai-Anh adds a funky twist to her look with a silk tunic. We love how she buttoned her blouse all the way to the top for a little edge.

Shop Aerie Graphic Socks!

We’re suckers for a cute critter sock!

Shop Aerie Nighties!

Striking the perfect note between sweet and trendy is a tricky balancing act, but we think Mai-Anh’s got this one covered.

The perfect gift (and we don’t believe in perfection!) We’re also very proud to launch our 5th fragrance, COZY UP… our yummiest, most delicious scent yet. It’s like wearing cotton candy!

And no holiday would be complete without giving back. This year we decided to sell our gift boxes for 50 cents each and donate the money to the non-profit Bright Pink, whose mission is to save young women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer. Now that’s REAL.

Remember, no matter what you give this holiday being the REAL you is the best gift you can give anyone!

DIY: Halloween Pumpkin Painting

We love Halloween at Aerie! Haunted houses in our conference rooms, pumpkin spice latte breaks, and of course, pumpkin picking! This year we put our carving tools away and opted for an unexpected alternative to pumpkin carving – pumpkin painting. Read on below to learn how our team created 3 easy no-carve pumpkin DIY ideas to help you make your Halloween extra BOO-tiful!

DIY Pumpkin Painting - Halloween at Aerie

What You’ll Need

Multi-surface paint in a vintage finish

Spray paint in the color of your choice (we love gold metallic tones!)

Painter’s tape

Paintbrushes in various sizes

A dropcloth or newspaper

Fun stickers

Loose glitter

2

Vintage White 

Our first pumpkin painting idea is simple and classic. Our team used a 2fl oz bottle of multi-surface acrylic craft paint to cover the entire pumpkin except the stem. We used 1 flat brush and 1 small brush to paint carefully around the top.

3

Voila! Now the white pumpkin gives you a sort of blank canvas to design anything you would like – continue reading to see what we did to complete the look.
4

Leaf It Be 

We painted another one of our pumpkins classic white, let it dry for 2 hours, and added one more very simple step. Using stickers purchased at a local craft store, we embellished the white surface to make one very chic pumpkin!
5

Preppy Pumpkin 

Our last pumpkin DIY is a bit more difficult and will take more time. Use 1.5″ painters tape to create 2-3 chevron lines across the circumference of your pumpkin.
6 7

After you finish taping your pumpkin, use a can of spray paint to color the tape-free sections. We chose gold because of the metallic finish, but feel free to try any color!

8 Let your now spray-painted pumpkin dry for at least 30 minutes. Very carefully, peel off the tape. 9

You did it! Be sure to show us your pumpkin creations with #AerieREAL on Instagram and Twitter.

We can’t forget about the lil’ pumpkins! We sprayed a few with gold or white spray paint and added some sparkles for extra glam!

How To: Style Your Romantic Lace Bralette

Whether you’re looking to lounge in soft, romantic lace or add a bit of whimsy to your outfit, the Romantic Lace Bralette is pure perfection. We asked three of our favorite bloggers to show us how they style the bralette, proving that this piece is a total must-have.

Meet McKenna:
Hello! My name is McKenna Bleu, a southern girl who has always had a love for fashion. For me great style doesn’t have to cost a lot, doesn’t have to be what’s popular or limited to a certain size. Being real and having confidence is the greatest style to obtain. McKenna Bleu is just that, a site to gain fashion inspiration, travel & beauty tips. I hope you will stop by and say hello!

What inspired  McKenna’s look:
For me, I have a love for color, bold prints and anything that sparkles!

What inspired Eleni’s look:
Sometimes a girl wants to feel as comfortable as she does sexy and the Romantic Lace Bralette did just that.  I absolutely like that I can casually relax in it in the privacy of my own home or dress it up with a high waisted skirt and a sheer blouse over top.

Meet Kelsey:
Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey from Kelsey Gonder. I’m a 23 year old from Pennsylvania. I graduated from Penn State University this past May where I majored in Business Management. I now hold three jobs- marketing coordinator, sales associate, and my personal favorite, blogger! I blog for so many different reasons but my number one reason is to make women feel better about themselves. I love providing outfit inspiration to ladies and sharing some of my favorite shops along the way!

What Inspired Kelsey’s look:
When I received the Romantic Lace Bralette, I was so intrigued with its details. Although simple in form, it has this beautiful lace overlay which screams attention. I’ve seen as well as styled bralettes with open back shirts and loose sweaters so I really wanted to try something different. That’s when I thought about wearing it as a crop top. Now I know not everyone likes this trend, so as an alternative I would recommend putting a button up over the bralette, loosely tucking it in, and leaving the first few buttons unbuttoned. That way you can still see the details but are very comfortable. After all, isn’t that what confidence is about? Pairing the bralette with this grey pleated skirt gave the look the exact effortlessness that I was going for, and I just slipped on a pair of sparkly flats to complete the outfit! I think this look is perfect to transition into fall. You can tack on as many extra layers as you’d like and even dress it up with a pair of heels!
