Thanksgiving is still more than 2 weeks away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start packing now! Our stylist, Erin, has all you need for a weekend of too much food and too much TV on your parents’ couch.

What to Wear Today

Get Erin’s Look: Ribbed Duster Cardi Hi Lo Racerback Bralette | Boybrief Undie Tiered Tank | Boyfriend Tank | Boxer Over-The-Knee Socks Birkenstock Arizona Sandal | Graphic Sleep Mask 

Lazy-wear is all about the layers, so this look has lots of them. Start with the blues and our Hi Lo Racerback Bralette and Boybrief Undie. Mix in some lavender with our Plaid Boxers and Boyfriend Tank, then tie it all together with our white Tiered Tank. To get extra cozy, wear our Ribbed Duster Cardi over everything. It’s a sweater (we promise), but just as comfy as a long robe. Then keep warm with Over-The-Knee Socks on the bottom.

This look is made for lounging, but if your friends want to drag you out for a mini high school reunion, all you have to do is throw on leggings in place of your boxers and you’re ready to go! Just don’t forget to ditch the sleep mask.

What are your Thanksgiving plans? Comment below and tell us!

How to Style a Cardigan

Sweater weather is in full effect and that means we can’t get enough cozy cardigans, ponchos and shawls. Our Shawl Cardi is the best of both worlds with its open front and draped, oversized silhouette. Shelby from Glitter and Gingham styles our coziest cardi with a striped tee and denim for a casual #OOTD.How to Style a Cardigan

What Inspired Shelby’s Look:
“When it comes to the changing of seasons (especially fall!)  I always get so excited, not just for the pretty fall days or a trip to the pumpkin patch, but because I get to refresh and update my wardrobe for the season to come! I mean who doesn’t love wearing new clothes?! However, sometimes keeping up with the newest trends of the season can seem overwhelming, so I always go back to what I know and what I feel good in! For me, once the temperature starts to drop, you can normally always find me in a pair of skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. ”

How to Style a Cardigan

“This open cardigan from Aerie is seriously everything I wanted in a cozy cardigan. I wear that thing curled up on my couch watching tv at night, to the gym over my tank & leggings (I take it off of course once I get there ;) ), while I am running errands and even date night! I can’t wait to pair it with leather leggings, a silk top and some fun heels for a dressier look! Stay tuned because that look is probably coming to G&G veryyy soon!”

Erin’s Outfit Of The Week: Winter Whites Are Coming!

Oh (cold) snap! There’s no escaping it: it’s November, temps are dropping and winter is coming… but so are winter whites! This week, Erin shows you how to transition into outfit whiteouts by mixing in subtle neutrals until winter is officially here.

Our Flowy Nightie was designed as sleepwear, but there’s no reason you can’t show it off and wear it out, too. Its v-neck silhouette is the best excuse to show a subtle pop of color with your lavender Lace Strappy Racerback Bralette underneath. Match with a Bikini Undie in the same shade for the prettiest pair.

Erin’s Outfit Of The Week: Winter Whites Are Coming!

To stay warm, layer with a taupe Bonfire Vest. We know we say it a lot, but we mean it. This soft knit blend is COZY! Then get even warmer with a Supersoft Beanie on top. On the bottom, keep the winter whites going with our plaid Boot Socks. Wear AEO’s Slouchy Tall Boots over them to bare a little leg but stay mostly covered for the season.

Seal your look with a Letter Pouch (online Thursday!) for a Very Aerie approach to winter whites. Cozy up, cuties!

How to Make Halloween Treats

In honor of National Candy Corn Day we asked Annie, the baker behind the yummy Bakin You Crazy Instagram account,  to show us how to whip together her favorite candy corn treat! Read on to learn how to whip up her sweet and spooky recipe.

Triple Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies

How to Make Halloween Treats

Yields 20-24 normal size cookies or 6-8 jumbo cookies

1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 table spoons milk
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup white chocolate chips (plus more to place on top, optional)
1 cup candy corn (plus more to place on top, optional)

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 1

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 45 seconds or until completely melted.
  3. Add sugar to butter. Beat on low until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla, eggs and milk to butter and sugar mixture. Mix on low until thorough combined.
  5. In separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, pudding, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Slowly, pour flour mixture into butter mixture while beating on low.
  7. Add chocolate chips and mix. (DISCLAIMER: You can add candy corn to cookie dough now or directly after cookies are removed from oven. The latter prevents unpredictable cookie shapes due to melted candy corn.

How to Make Halloween Treats

How to Make Halloween Treats

Instructions | Part 2

  1. Place heaping tables spoons of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (DISCLAIMER: If candy corn was mixed into dough, make sure no candy corn is in direct contact with the baking sheet. This will result in deformed cookies. Instead, shape dough so candy corn is on top or inside the ball of cookie dough.)
  2. Bake for 8-10 minutes depending on oven. Cookies should look gooey and soft. Do not over bake!!
  3. For picture perfect cookies, additional chocolate chips and candy corn can be placed on warm cookies with a slight push.
  4. The cookies should remain soft and fudgy when cool… If they last that long!
  5. Voilà! Delicious Halloween treats!

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

It may be getting colder outside, but our buyers are already thinking spring! Get REAL with Katie Berger, #AerieSWIM Buyer! Read on to learn more about how she helps to plan Aerie’s line each season, her forecast for spring swim and what #AerieREAL means to her.

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

What are the responsibilities of a buyer? 
A buyer is responsible for strategizing the number of styles we can have in the store and online, along with the types of silhouettes and fits we would like to offer. Buyers work hand-in-hand with a design team that is specific to swim (though they dabble in other areas as well), who designs into our style requests. We then collectively build an assortment that we believe our customer will have to have in her closet (or swim drawer!).

Buyers track the sales trends of the business from week-to-week (and on occasion, day-to-day) to give us insight for future deliveries – if the customer doesn’t love it today, will she love something similar in a few months? A lot of the job comes from instinct, and knowing what your sales history tells you along with new trends you see coming our way! This job uses both sides of the brain… and I LOVE it!

What trends are you forecasting for swim in ’16?
We are still in love with strappy swim, but we also LOVE the 70’s vibes in swim – ruffles and crochet, one-pieces, crops and teeny tiny bottoms. I want to wear a one-piece with AEO denim shorts, head to the beach, and be ready for dinner in a snap!

We can’t WAIT for swim! Let’s talk about our current collection…what’s your favorite item for Holiday?
I love the fun accessories, including our gifting ‘grab and go’ collection! Great for gifting your friends, sisters or yourself! But really the bralettes are GORGEOUS. The laces are so feminine and the stylings are so great for any day of the week. I already bought 5 of them! And wait until you see the PJ pants…they are so cozy and cute! My Christmas morning look = aerie PJ’s.

Real Talk With Katie Berger, Swim Buyer

Love Katie’s look? Shop her blanket scarf here.

Are you an early riser or a night owl?
Neither?! I can get up consistently early on the weekends, but why can’t I get up during the week? I could say I’m definitely a napper!

What is your favorite city that you’ve either traveled to or want to travel to?
In February I went to Tulum in Mexico, and I have to say it is easily my favorite place I’ve ever been. The relaxed, non-commercial vibe is perfect for a getaway in the sunshine. We stayed at the Hotel Mezzanine, where they brought you coffee to your door every morning, and you could take the basket out to a hammock and enjoy your coffee while looking at the ocean. I have never been so relaxed in my life! I loved it so much, I’m going back in December. Next stop, I’m thinking Iceland! Have you seen the pictures of that island? It looks so beautiful.

We’re so jealous! That sounds amazing. What’s 1 item you can’t live without?
Chapstick (and Spotify). Oh, and actually a hair tie. Yep, definitely a hair tie too.

What does #AerieREAL mean to you?
I think this can mean so many different things to different girls. For me it means being and loving yourself and not apologizing for it. We recently talked as a buying team about how girls apologize constantly when speaking their minds, and I think that’s part of what this is about – learning how to stop apologizing for who you are or what you think and embracing and owning it!

We love that! Thank you Katie for sitting down with us!

Tune in to our Snapchat today (handle: aerie) as Katie gives us a behind-the-scenes look at her day at Aerie!

We’re ALL about plaid this season, so our Flannel Romper is a major love. Dare to go a little more bare and leave one more button undone so your Lace Strappy Bralette can show.
