What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you’ve already began packing or you’re still anxiously scrolling through Pinterest to find the perfect back-to-school looks, it’s not too late to pick up those last minute must-haves. Leave the stress behind and let us show you how easy it is to ace cute and comfortable!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

We think you’ll agree that one of the best parts of going off to college is the freedom. Not just the freedom to stay up until midnight, eating oreos and laughing with your roomie (okay, that’s awesome, too) but the freedom to dress how you want, when you want. You have the rest of your life to be an adult, so for now rock that effortlessly chic look like it’s going out of style.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you plan to spend afternoons doing yoga on the quad or lounging with your besties, our Crop Yoga Pant is something you can’t live without.  Between the soft stretch cotton jersey and lace print waistband, you’ll own multiple pairs by the end of the semester. Yes, they’re that good. Pair with our über-comfortable Seamless Bra to achieve that level of zen you’ll need right before your intense mid-term.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

For all you busy fashionistas running (literally!) from one class to the next, you’re going to love the Best Basics Shop. Throw on our Hide & Peek Plunge Bralette, Scoop Neck Tank and Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt to achieve that simple, yet stylish #OOTD. And the look wouldn’t be complete without our Jogger – a skinny fit that can be dressed up or down. If that doesn’t sound like sweatpant bliss, we don’t know what does.

Once your #OOTD is picked out, you’ll want to add a little something sweet. Our Hidden Love line of Body Lotion, Body Cream, Body Mist and Perfume offer a pretty mix of fresh fruits, sensual florals and creamy vanilla. Grab a Rollerball to throw in your bag for those late night study sessions!

Every girl on-the-go will appreciate our adorable Baggu Backpack! With its floral print, double strap and (washing machine-friendly!) cotton canvas, it offers the perfect harmony of cute and functional. Now all that’s left to do is grab your monogrammed notebooks and head to class in style!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

After a long day of class, you deserve to unwind in style. We may be a little biased, but our sleep sets are some of the absolute cutest around. Let’s start with our Softest Modal Bralette and Mini Boyfrief. Not only are they made of the softest (you guessed it!) modal, they have the sweetest scalloped lace trim. Throw on a Sleep Top and a pair of Boxers, or one of our Softest Sleep Robes, to drift off to dreamland.

Now that your dorm essentials have been picked out, are you ready for class to begin? The answer: You were born ready. Good luck – we know you’re going to do great! xo

It’s all about the Street Scene!

If your style icons include the likes of Zoe Kravitz, Gwen Stefani, Demi Lovato and Rihanna then the street scene trend was made for you! Rock-and-roll aesthetic mixed with oversized sweaters, a pair of fabulous rugged boots and jeans that fit like leggings will give your #AEOSTYLE the perfect edge this school year. Read on for styling tips to create a look that’s casually cool, requires little effort and will make you standout in any crowd.

1.  Start with the basics.  Grab your fave destroyed jeggings paired with a rocker inspired tank or your go-to fitted dress.
2. Toughen up your look with our must-have moto jacket that will make your outfit look expensive and will also carry your summer style through fall.
3. Bring on the bling! Always accessorize with studs, chains and spikes. Layer on our mixed metal bracelets with a stacked spike necklace.
4.  Add a scene stealing shoe. Our leopard print slip-ons or rugged boot will do the job.
5.  Don’t forget the retro element. Mix up your street scene style with acid wash jeans and a cozy flannel tied around your waist.

How to Wear: Jogger Pants

This fall we’re mixing street style and comfort like never before. Let’s start with the jogger pant. Chances are you’ve either seen it or you’ve heard about it, but the real question is, have you rocked it yet? If the answer is no, you’re missing out. With its relaxed fit, drawstring waist, and cuffed bottom it offers the perfect balance of yes, you guessed it, style and comfort. Pair with a Plaid Button Down Shirt and Black Coated Denim Jacket for a night out with friends or throw on a Pocket Baseball T-Shirt and Reebok ZQuick Sneaker to run errands around town. Either way, the jogger is ideal for the guy on the go. Have we convinced you yet?
