Back to Real Life

1

Ok Aerie girls, it’s time to get real. Summer has officially come to an end and that means Fall style is upon us. That’s right. Start packing away those shorts & swimsuits, because it’s leggings & layers from here on out! Our Back to Real Life lookbook proves that Fall never looked so good.

5

Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun with prints. Our Hi-Rise Printed Legging is sure to turn heads on campus with its pretty floral pattern and perfect berry palette. Complete the look with our Legging T-Shirt, Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt and Slouchy Beanie.

4

Fall means a jam-packed social (and academic, of course) calendar, filled with pumpkin spice latte dates and late night study sessions. When you get a minute to relax, being comfortable is an absolute must. Our Woven Bomber and Scoop Neck Tank is the perfect pairing to catch up on the latest Aerie playlist and de-stress.

6

Running errands between classes? Throw on our Skinny Jogger or Hi-Rise Printed Legging to check things off your to-do list in style.

3

Cruise around campus in ultimate comfort with our Lounge Sweatpant. The softest stretch fabric is perfect for yoga or meeting up with your BFFs for lunch. Throw on a Long Sleeve T-Shirt for a pop of color and bring along our Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt just in case it gets chilly.

7

If your back-to-school style is a bit edgier, the Print legging in Charcoal Sky is going to be your new best friend.  Slip on our Softest Modal Bralette and pair with a Swing Tank to take care free to a whole new level.

What to Wear Under Your AEO: Crop Tee

What goes under your AEO? Aerie, of course!

Cropped tees were a huge trend this summer, and we especially love the AEO Baby T-Shirt! For the back-to-school and fall seasons, this top paired with a pair of effortless, distressed jeans is one of our favorite looks. To make the fit smooth and seamless, our Aerie fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, suggests wearing her favorite t-shirt bra of the moment…the Sunnie! Since the top is dark-colored, it’s a great time to have fun with color…wait ’til you see what Jenny puts underneath!

So go ahead, wear your favorite cropped tees with confidence while summer lasts! With Jenny’s tips, you’ll be looking better than ever.
