How to Style a Cardigan

Sweater weather is in full effect and that means we can’t get enough cozy cardigans, ponchos and shawls. Our Shawl Cardi is the best of both worlds with its open front and draped, oversized silhouette. Shelby from Glitter and Gingham styles our coziest cardi with a striped tee and denim for a casual #OOTD.How to Style a Cardigan

What Inspired Shelby’s Look:
“When it comes to the changing of seasons (especially fall!)  I always get so excited, not just for the pretty fall days or a trip to the pumpkin patch, but because I get to refresh and update my wardrobe for the season to come! I mean who doesn’t love wearing new clothes?! However, sometimes keeping up with the newest trends of the season can seem overwhelming, so I always go back to what I know and what I feel good in! For me, once the temperature starts to drop, you can normally always find me in a pair of skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. ”

“This open cardigan from Aerie is seriously everything I wanted in a cozy cardigan. I wear that thing curled up on my couch watching tv at night, to the gym over my tank & leggings (I take it off of course once I get there ;) ), while I am running errands and even date night! I can’t wait to pair it with leather leggings, a silk top and some fun heels for a dressier look! Stay tuned because that look is probably coming to G&G veryyy soon!”

How To Make Patchwork Pocket Denim With I SPY DIY

Jenni R. from I SPY DIY here. For my next installment, I took a pair of classic denim and added a pop of color to create patchwork pocket shorts. You can choose any fabric that suits your #AEOSTYLE to create a pair that’s unique to you! Check out my easy step-by-step guide below.

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

What you need:
AEO Denim X Kick Boot Jean

Hem tape
Fabric Glue

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

What you do:
Step 1:
Turn your AEO Denim X Kick Boot Jean into shorts by cutting a straight line across both legs.

Step 2: Choose a piece of fabric that is large enough to cover the back pockets of the jeans. Lay the fabric flat on the jeans and trace the shape of the pockets onto the fabric.

Step 3: Create another outline of the pocket that is 1/2” wider than the initial one on all sides. Cut around this outer line.

Step 5: Adhere the fabric to the pocket using using fabric glue and let dry. Be careful not to glue the opening of the pocket shut.

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.”
