How to Style a Harem Pant

Faves for free spirits! Blogger Olia from Love, Olia pairs a Crop Tee with our Harem Pant for an effortless day-to-night look.

How to Style a Harem Pant“For a while now, I have been a HUGE fan of Aerie. First of all, I love their items from lingerie to clothing and more and even more than that, I’m obsessed with the message they portray to women of all ages out there. They are committed to making all girls feel good about themselves – no matter the size – and to be honest, shouldn’t ALL brands do that these days?? I think yes..

Sometimes, even as a style blogger it’s hard not to find yourself comparing yourself to others and trying to fit into these impossible standards that well — when you find a brand that just loves to embrace women for who they are and encourages them to love themselves exactly the way they are, a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders.”

How to Style a Harem Pant“Like I mentioned above, Aerie carries tons of amazing items such as lingerie and swimwear but what some may not know is that they also have some beyond amazing clothing/lounge items as well! Since I’m a total Cali girl, when I saw their awesome Harem pants I thought they would be perfect for that comfy SoCal style that I know I love to sport on the daily.

Their Deep Waters Harem Pant caught my eye since I wanted a bright color to stand out at the beach and such but they also have some more subtle colors if that’s more your style. I can’t even begin to explain how comfy these pants are you guys! You literally feel like you’re wearing PJ pants that are stylish enough to wear out. Talk about amazing, right?”

How to Style a Harem PantHow to Style a Harem PantHow to Style a Harem Pant“I also want to talk about how to style the Harem pant since some people think it can be a bit challenging. Since Harem pants sit a little bit higher waisted, I like to wear cropped tops or wear tops that I can tuck in such as a loose tank or even a body suit! I chose to pair it with this off-the-shoulder crop tee in navy. I’m not one to show too much skin but I feel like it shows just the proper amount without it being too much.

Aerie also has some bodysuit options available which I was debating wearing with it as well but ultimately went with the crop top. I do, however, think a bodysuit would be a super cute option and totally different!”

How to Style a Harem PantHow to Style a Harem Pant“Remember, these pants can be dressed up or down depending the kind of mood you are in! Wear them as lounge pants at home with a loose knit sweater for a laid back look, or dress it up a bit as I did for a look you can definitely wear out! There’s one thing you will not regret — how COMFORTABLE you feel in them, that’s for sure!”

How to Style a Tassel Tank

Tassels are everywhere this summer and our Breezy Tassel Tank is right on trend! Its side slits and bohemian-inspired print make it our breezy new fave.

Francesca from Frank Vinyl pairs it with distressed denim and a bright wedge for a pop of color!

How to Style a Tassel Tank

“This years Summer style is all about embroidery, patterns, colorful tassels and anything boho. Of course I’m all over this. I’ve always been a junkie of anything even slightly reminiscent or fully “all in” eclectic/boho/folklore style. Especially when it is all mixed with the right pieces and textures. I was trying to stay slightly more neutral lately but who am I kidding? It’s hard to stay away from prints and colors during this hot summer heat that we are experiencing here in So Cal. This Aerie Breezy Tassel Tank has all of the above. The foolproof easy tank to throw on with jeans and instantly make my casual outfit stylish. I’m a big fan of how I can also dress this way down with some cute breezy shorts around the house or to head to the beach with a bikini underneath.”

How to Style a Tassel Tank“For this street style look, I mixed a bit of Folklore style with modern street vibe. I paired this tank with old ripped jeans and bright red wedges. I like how the red wedge heels help bring all the reds in the outfit out (like in the cute little tassels). All about those tiny details! Of course I always try and make sure to draw the eye to those tiny unique details somehow.”

Trend Alert! Strappy One-Piece

Pop it like it’s hot! Our Pop Color One-Piece Swimsuit is right on trend with its pop color grommets & trim with a low, strappy lace-up back.

Lauren from Fashionably Lo rocks her fave new swimsuit with confidence and challenges all girls to share what makes them #AerieREAL below!  Trend Alert! Strappy One-Piece

“One of my favorite things about being a blogger is when I get to work with a brand that just gets women. I’m not talking about the types of product they carry or the many colors/patterns they might come in. I’m talking about their mission, their values, their branding, their approach. Aerie is one of those brands that, while yes they have tons of goodies every girl will love, they are also sending it us with a super powerful message: embrace your body, love your body and don’t feel the need or pressure to fit into a mold of what is supposed to be ‘beautiful’.”

“If you do a quick look through the #AERIEREAL hashtag on Instagram or Twitter, you’ll see tons of girls celebrating their unique bodies and empowering others to join them. And that is something I can 100% get behind because let’s be REAL, I, just  like everyone else, have body insecurities. I’ve struggled with them for years but love getting the chance to share with you guys just how silly they are. So, I’m throwing on the most amazing, adorable, sexy, flattering one piece and flaunting MY curves, flaws, etc. because all of that is beautiful. And what’s even more beautiful/sexy/amazing is the confidence to do it!”

Trend Alert! Strappy One-Piece

“When I tried on this plum swimsuit for the first time, I fell in love. Not only did I think the color was bomb.com but I loved the strappy back detail with the bright pop of color. I’ve also been a major fan of one-pieces lately because they’re just easier. You don’t have to worry about the bottoms sliding off when you cannon-ball into the pool and they give me total beach babe vibes. I can’t wait to rock this beauty to the next pool party or beach vacay (coming for you, Florida!).

I challenge all of you lovely, confident, hot, powerful ladies to join me in the #AERIEREAL movement. Whether that means heading to the pool in the skimpiest bikini you own (from Aerie obvi) without doubting yourself or snapping a pic on Insta with the hashtag…up to you. I promise, you will feel SO empowered and honestly, ready to rule the world.”

How to Make Double Chocolate Donuts

“Hey guys, I’m Stephanie from I am a Food Blog. When Aerie asked me to create something inspired by their b&w collection, I immediately thought of panda donuts! My favorite black and white animal is a panda. There’s something so cute about their furry little faces. And, they’re always dressed to impress!”
