What To Wear: New Year’s Eve

We can all agree that New Year’s Eve is a time to shine. Whether you’re ringing in the new year out on the town or staying in with family and friends, a little bit of sparkle can go a long way.

Allexis from Life of a Coy Fish shows us how she styles her favorite Aerie finds to watch the ball drop.

What inspired Allexis’s Looks:
Hey friends! When it comes to NYE we all know there are really only two ways to celebrate: out on the town with friends, or snuggled in at home with loved ones. To make your New Year’s Eve a little easier I put together a look for you all for each way to celebrate. I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ringing in the new year with a night out on the town I want to be warm, comfortable, and cute. I don’t want to have to worry about tugging a dress down all night or having freezing bare legs. These cute sequined leggings are THE perfect piece to meet those needs without having to compromise looking great!

To complete the look and keep it fun, I paired these bad boys with a fun printed sweater and wedges that are comfy enough to dance the night away in. Sequins are really a no brainer when it comes to NYE and some other fun ways to style some cute sequined leggings would be with a fun graphic tee and classic pair of pumps, or with a boyfriend blazer and plain white tee. The possibilities are endless and there’s really no way to go wrong with these leggings!

For a night in, watching the ball drop on Times Square on the good old television, the key to a cute look is keeping it cozy while bringing in fun sparkly elements that make it so it doesn’t just feel like another boring night at home! This sequined bralette layered underneath this soft henley is the perfect way to add that bit of New Year’s fun while these cozy little knit PJ shorts keep things casual and comfy!

7 things we love: Holiday Edition

20141217_7_THINGS

{ Image Source: 1. | 1. | 1. | 1. L. to R. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | }

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! We’re getting in the spirit with a holiday-themed edition of 7 Things We Love. So grab a glass of eggnog, settle down in front of the fireplace and check out our top picks for the season (and be sure to let us know your favorite holiday things, too).

Wake Up In Fun PJ’s
There’s nothing better than waking up on Christmas morning (or, okay, any winter day really) in a set of really fun pajamas. For girls, we’re totally loving our Fair Isle Knit Legging (currently sold out online, but check your closest AEO for availability), especially when it’s paired with a too cute for words sequined penguin sweatshirt. And for guys, we can’t get enough of buffalo check this season (the “Iced Out” graphic on the T just adds to the festive feel).

Give An AEO Gift Card To Someone Special
Still stumped over what to buy for your brother/sister/mom/dad/BFF/etc? Why not give an AEO Gift Card? Whether you choose a traditional card, an E-Gift Card or a Mobile Gift Card, they’re always the perfect gift for everyone on your list. We’ve created tons of fun designs for them this year, and you can even personalize a digital greeting for the recipient! Just visit ae.com/giftcard from your phone to include a voice or text message with the card.

Download The Elf Stickers on Facebook Messenger
Want to make the Facebook messages you send a little more fun? The Elf stickers (yes, inspired by your favorite human elf) will have you laughing and messaging up a storm. All of the best lines from the movie are included, from “Santa! I know him!” and “I just like to smile!” to “You sit on a throne of lies!” and “I’m a cotton headed ninny muggins.” The only problem? You might get addicted to sending them.

Listen to “That’s Christmas To Me” By Pentatonix
Honestly? It’s hard to even choose a favorite song from this album. The intricate harmonies and awesome voices of this five-person a cappella group soar over some of the most loved Christmas songs and give them a fresh new twist. We’re especially digging “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” “Sleigh Ride” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”—but, really, you can’t go wrong with any of the songs on this album.

DIY A Hot Chocolate Bar
Come on, who doesn’t love hot chocolate on a cold winter day? We know we do. We scoured Pinterest this year for ideas on how to turn an empty space into a hot cocoa wonderland. Buy some marshmallows, cinnamon and peppermint sticks, some fancy mugs and maybe a stocking or two (oh, and lots of hot cocoa, of course)… and get ready to do some serious chocolate drinking!

Read How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Is it really the holidays without this gem by Dr. Seuss? It’s one of the most loved Christmas stories for a reason. So travel to Whoville with the grouchy, grumpy Grinch and go along on his journey toward discovering what Christmas is really about.

Watch Love Actually
We don’t know about you, but the holidays really haven’t begun until we watch this star-studded movie of intersecting plots and characters, filled with the spirit of joy, giving and love. (Not to mention a killer dance scene by Hugh Grant.) It warms our hearts more and more every year!

Christmas Morning with Aerie

Christmas morning is a time we look forward to all year long, so why not step up your Sleepwear game with our Waffle Onesie? This comfy, all-in-one piece is perfect for opening presents and lounging with family. Between the soft thermal waffle and drawstring waist, you’ll be left wondering why separates are even a thing.

Our friend Alex from Beautyosaurus Lex loves the Waffle Oneise as much as we do. See how she styles it below!

What Inspired Alex’s Look:
Christmas morning is magical! There truly is no other way to put it. Between the food, the family, the presents and laughter, there is so much to be grateful for. This waffle onesie screams festive and by adding a pop of color with the scarlet bralette and a dainty gold necklace, you will be set for the celebration! Christmas morning at my parents house usually ends with some form of a Nerf gun war, so not only is this adorable but also comfortable and practical!

What inspired Adriana’s Look:
I tend to gravitate more towards cozy looks during the colder months, and this AEO sweater is just perfect to throw on over my favorite pair of leggings and mixed with a chic scarf. The pretty pattern and comfy knit make it the perfect winter staple, so ideal for a day of running errands, grabbing coffee with friends, or staying warm indoors working on my blog.
