How To Pack for a Festival-Filled Weekend: Aerie Style

With festival season upon us, we are packing our bags with our must-haves for pool and groove-ready outfits. Shop our favorite looks below from what to wear on your flight out and your night out!

When it comes to travel, we’re thinking more cozy and cute style than airport chic. We’re traveling cross-country to Indio Valley this weekend and we’re leaning on some Aerie faves to help make the trip even sweeter.

Our first must-have? The new Perky Bralette!  She’s made with the softest lace and light foam padding. Fight the chilly in-cabin temperatures with our Dropped Armhole Open Knit Sweater. Complete the look with our chic, but comfy day-to-night pants.

Do you love art as much as we do? Because this season, we’re showing our love for all things art! Whether we’re painting the Wynwood Walls in Miami or drawing murals on our shoes –  we’re expressing our individuality by taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary. Follow our step by step DIY Sharpie Shoes guide to add a bit of personality to your #AEOStyle.

What you’ll need:

Canvas shoes. Try our Slip-On Sneakers!

Pencil

Fine Point Sharpies (any color)

A creative mind

Step 1: Find a pair of canvas shoes that have a great surface for decorating. We recommend our Slip-On Sneakers

These Slip-On Sneakers are the perfect surface for art.

Step 2: Start outlining your design lightly with a pencil. We highly suggest starting with a pencil so you can erase any mistakes along the way!

DIY Sharpie Shoes

Trace lightly the first time so it’s easier to erase any mistakes.

Step 3: Once you’ve completed your design in pencil, retrace your artwork one more time before moving over to pen.

Once you have your initial design drawn, retrace with pencil once more.

Step 4: Start outlining your artwork with a fine tip Sharpie. You can use any color!
