What Inspired Erica’s Look:
“I am loving the seventies trend that is all the rage this summer, & this super soft suede skirt fits the vibe perfectly. My style is a bit more edgy, so to give the total look some of my personal flair, I paired this aline mini with a black ribbed mock neck tank, a black fringe trim floor duster, & my fave black ankle booties. Black is always the new black, & I am digging this seventies meets rocker #OOTD (which is also perfectly comfortable in this heat!).” Check out the blog for more looks & be sure to follow me on Instagram!

As Seen In #AEOSTYLE: Started From The Bottom

Styling a strong outfit is sometimes like constructing a building: you have to start from the bottom. We love the focus on trendy fall AEO bottoms we spotted in some of our favorite magazines recently. From destroyed mended details on hi-rise jeggings to flowy skirts with endless pairing possibilities, check out how #AEOSTYLE was featured this month.

As Seen In

Denim featuring destroyed mended detailing is a fun update to basic destructed denim, as seen in Life & Style. If you want to switch things up, channel Victoria Justice and rock a paneled skirt, which you can easily style to look sporty like Victora or boho like the vintage vibe we’re seeing everywhere this season.

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

The Wrap Front Knit Jumpsuit has quickly become our favorite. Its supersoft stretch fabric is undeniably cozy and the wrap front detail makes for the perfect peek of your favorite lace Bralette.

Blogger Christina from New Darlings talks about her morning routine and all things #AerieREAL.

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

What makes Christina #AerieREAL:
“As someone who quickly wakes up, checks their phone, hits the shower, and then gets straight to work, I’ve been waking up earlier to give myself an hour of quiet time each morning.  Most mornings I’ve been reaching for soft and cozy knits to lounge around in.  This jumpsuit from Aerie has definitely become a favorite.”

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

“I’ve been loving their soft intimates and all the amazing things they’ve been doing with the #AerieREAL campaign. I’ve been admiring the direction the company has been going in with their unretouched ads, positive message on embracing all body types, and feeling comfortable in your own skin.  It also doesn’t hurt that they have a ton of comfy basics for easy going days.”

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

We asked one of our favorite bloggers, Tiana from Thetique, what makes her #AerieREAL. Tiana gets REAL by encouraging everyone to embrace their curves and love the imperfections that make us unique.

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

 What makes Tiana #AerieREAL:
“I love brands that continuously remain authentic and encourage us all to be proud of the wonderful things we have to offer. The #AerieREAL Campaign is reminding women across the world to love their freckles, embrace their curves, and show off all of the beautiful characteristics that make us complexly and undeniably ourselves. Because let’s face it: we’ve all been “that girl” secretly wishing we had “her legs” or “her hair.” But I can guarantee that while you’re swooning over someone else’s beauty, another person is admiring yours all the same.”

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

“The truth of the matter is that we all have these insanely unique qualities about ourselves, and they’re what make us the amazing humans we are. So we need to stop looking to others and start looking at ourselves – I think we’d be surprised at how much beauty we find there.”

AEO Back to School Essentials

Back to school: you love to hate it, but we love to love it. Why wouldn’t we? The new school year is the perfect time for a wardrobe overhaul and a brand new #OOTD, so we’re showing you some of our favorite closet essentials transformed into back to school looks that will own the classroom.

Girls:

Back To School Essentials 2015

Boho Top
This season is all about vintage inspired looks. Our AEO Embroidered Peasant Shirt will turn heads with its eye-catching details and breezy feel. Bonus? It’s light and airy, which means it’s perfect for days when the summer heat is sticking around, but it’s still appropriate for class.

Washed-Out Jeggings
The end of summer brings the end of shorts season, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck wearing the same old jeans. Give your look a little edge in our Super Stretch Jegging in a washed out color. Slim fit pants are the perfect way to balance out your outfit, especially when you’re wearing a flowing top.

Crossbody Bag
Step up your bag game this school year with the AEO Leather Fringe Crossbody Purse. Sturdy leather straps make carrying books comfortable, and the fun fringe will complement any outfit.

Long Necklaces
Even though we know and love the bold, bib necklace, we’re challenging you to be different this year and wear a long, delicate necklace instead. Our AEO Turquoise Fan Bolo Necklace will add some glam to your look without overpowering the outfit because less is sometimes more.

Statement Rings
You’re writing all day, so why not add a little fun to your fingers? Stacking rings is on trend right now, and we love piling as many on as possible. Our AEO Turquiose & Triangle Midi Ring set adds a pop of color and unexpected placement above the knuckle. Paired with the AEO White Stone Ring, your accessories totally make the grade.

Bold Shoes
Slip on heels are one of our favorite looks to help transition from summer sandals to fall boots, so we’re happy to see the trend back again in 2015. The Swedish HasBeens Slip In Super High is no exception. Make a statement in super-high, retro shoes when you strut into the classroom.

Original Fragrance
Let’s get real: back to school is one of the most important times to amp up your confidence levels. When you’re confident, you’re able to make the grades, handle the stress that comes with the school year and make a name for yourself. Our AE Me Fragrance for Her will give you the boost you need to be yourself and embrace your strengths.

Guys:

Back To School Essentials 2015

Denim Jacket
Early fall mornings can get a little chilly. Plus, with class, study tables, football games and nights out, you’re busy and need a jacket that fits your lifestyle. We love the timeless look of the AEO Denim Jacket, especially over a button down shirt.

Small Details
Guys can accessorize, too. Keep your look rugged while adding some texture with the AEO Climbing Rope Wrap Bracelet. We also love a fedora or wide brim hat, especially for coffee with friends on the weekend.

AEO Printed Button Down Shirt
If you haven’t invested in a button down shirt, do it now.  The AEO Printed Button Down Shirt will become your staple top for the school year, from class presentations to date nights. We love it paired with a destructed, slim pant for a mix of edge and prep.

Destructed Denim
Everyone needs a great pair of denim in their closet, and our Slim Straight Jean will be your new favorite fit. With just the right amount of destroyed detailing, you can make these jeans work all school year.

Athletic Sneaker
Meet your denim’s new best friend: the New Balance 565 Sneaker. Long gone are the days when you thought you couldn’t pair skinny jeans with this style – pull the look together with a button down for a cool campus vibe.

Colorblock Backpack
Okay, we know – sometimes studying is boring. That doesn’t mean your backpack has to be boring, too. Get noticed in the library this year when you carry your books in a bright backpack like the AEO X State Backpack.
