Halloween How To: Turtleneck 3 Ways

Get in here, boo! For the third year, we asked #AerieREAL ladies from our office to play dress up and make three Halloween looks out of our fave fall essential… the t-neck! Read on to see how you can take your turtleneck from day to play this Halloween.

Can’t touch this!

Jill is Aerie’s Associate Manager of Brand Marketing, and only prickly on the outside with her Halloween Cactus look. DIY by threading pipe cleaners through the weaves of a green t-neck sweater (being careful not to rip it!). Add some faux flowers for a look that’s in full bloom!Halloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysHalloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysHalloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysHalloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysBlog_Costume_Cactus2Halloween How To: Turtleneck 3 Ways

Sundae Fun Day 

Senior Coordinator of Talent Acquisition, Sarah, is the sweetest in this cute and fun ice cream costume. Cut some felt strips, and glue or pin them along with colored cotton balls onto a basic t-neck. The cherry headband tops it off!

Mighty Mouse 

Chloe is the Lead Lab Associate for Creative Window Marketing, and she’s all ears in our easy mouse costume. Cut some fabric that matches back to your fave gray t-neck and layer it with smaller pink circles for the ears. Sew on a coordinating “tail” and you’re a mouse, duh!
