Introducing Up Next: The Ultimate Festival-Inspired Playlist

Introducing Up Next: The Ultimate Festival-Inspired Playlist

Over the next few months, we partnered with six talented bands and musicians to deliver the ultimate festival inspired playlist for our stores. Vance Joy, De Lux, Hunter Hunted, Strange Talk, Desert Noises and Tijuana Panthers hand picked their favorite festival songs from this season while including their own genre into the mix. The end result? The perfect summer soundtrack. Over the course of three months, we’ll bring you exclusive band interviews, how to rock #AEOStyle similar to their own and the reason behind their sound. We can’t wait to take you on this musical journey so sit back, relax and rock on. Make sure to check back on Monday for our interview with Tijuana Panthers!

Guest Blog Post: Jenny Altman on Perfect T-Shirt Bras

Sheer and lightweight tees and tanks all have one thing in common – they need a great t-shirt bra!

The t-shirt bra is the modern girl’s go-to bra of choice…and why? There is no show through. It is like your trustworthy BFF that works with everything. It may not be the most sexy bra in your drawer (although it can be tres pretty), but it makes your boobs look good and keeps you modest even in the coldest of places.

Here are my go-to t-shirt bras for summer and back to school:

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18189

Sunnie is my #1 basic t-shirt bra. She is full-coverage (but not too much), has stretch for comfort, is lightly lined (no show through!) and hides the back-fat (well, we all have some!). She’s paired here with our Love Me Don’t Retouch Me tee for the perfect comfy and confident look!

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18179

Charley is my new BFF. She conceals, has a deep plunge for low tees and tanks, gives great push up and even has a super secret j-hook in the back, instantly transforming her into a racerback bra. Plus her colors are amazing! I love the cotton Charley in light grey with the neon yellow trim! It pairs perfectly with the neon stripe Charley tee!

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18195

Blakely is a longtime fave, especially with pretty lace detail. She is a great lightly lined demi-cup which gives coverage and a full, rounded shape. Her solid colors are amazing (with contrast lace detail!) and her allover lace shows you that t-shirt bras don’t have to be boring. The lace is flat and smooth so it still works under tees, but looks much fancier than your go-to nudes.

SET11_07_14_14_AERIE_SM_TSHIRT18209

Jaclyn is your smoothest, softest pushup bra with underwire. She is the perfect t-shirt bra (so smooth, everything just glides over her) with built in pillows around the wire (seriously!). She feels dreamy and lovely even while doing her job of pushing you up to perkiest perfection! I love the ombre colors, too. Check out the lilac with two tone purple lace around the band.

Which t-shirt bra is YOUR go-to?

Tell me your fave or ask me a question at AskJenny@AE.com.

Xoxo,

Jenny
