Real Talk with Erin Collins-Rittling

We know you’re a big fan of yoga and meditation! What  is your go-to studio look?

I always wear tight tanks and leggings.  I can stretch easily without getting a lot of fabric in the way and go up into a headstand or arm balance without my shirt flying up.  I also always have a loose layer nearby to throw on during warmups and when I leave the studio on a cold day.

In three words, how would describe your style?

Comfortable, Minimalistic, Classic

Real Talk with Erin Collins-Rittling

What are your favorite trends this season?

What does being #AerieREAL mean to you?

Being true to yourself! Give yourself a break!!!!

Tell us more!

I always put too much pressure on myself to eat healthier, run faster, work harder.  Yoga has challenged that!  Last year I had a serious running injury from overuse and it sidelined me.  I had put so much of my identity into the fact that I ran marathons and I ran fast.  When I couldn’t run anymore, I didn’t know who I was, but something has changed over the last year.  I allowed myself to slow down and take a day off here and there.  It’s important to take care of yourself.  No one else can do that for you.  I make sure to take a moment every day and sit quietly.  No TV, no music, just breathe.  My Aerie REAL is loving myself enough to stop pushing. And my wild curly hair. My hair is untamable, and sometimes I have to let that go too!

Thank you, Erin!

How To Style The Slim Core Flex Jean With Oh Anthonio

For our second denim installment with Oh Anthonio, we challenged him to style a lighter wash to add a pop of brightness to his winter wardrobe. Our Slim Core Flex jean looks exactly like your favorite AEO denim, but now with just enough stretch for increased comfort & flexibility. Check out how Anthony added a spin to a typical tailored look by adding distressed and oversized elements to his #AEOSTYLE.

american eagle flex jeans 2-1What Inspired Anthony’s Look:When it comes to my personal style one of the things I love to do is blend casual and dressy and break down tailored pieces.  Instead of your classic lightwash jeans, why not wear a pair that’s distressed?  Instead of a typical tailored topcoat, why not go for one that’s oversized? I love juxtaposing styles like this and little details like frayed hems, double zippers, and distressed washes have a really cool, edgy feel.”

Trend Alert! Hi Neck Sports Bra

The new year not only brings new trends, but new challenges! #AerieREAL girl Lauren LeBouef wore our Hi Neck Sports Bra and Sport-ish Crop Legging for a day of yoga at the beach. Read on to learn more about her experience! Trend Alert! Hi Neck Sports Bra

“I can honestly say that I am SO in love with this new workout outfit of mine! Something in particular that I love would be how the sports bra has a high neck line! I don’t own any other sports bras that are like that and I’m really liking not only the look of it but also the breathable mesh fabric at the top! When I’m shopping for workout clothes I like to try and find tops that show the cool details of the back of my sports bra’s! This grey top from Aerie has the perfect back cut out to show the crossing details of the sports bra!”

“This month is the perfect time to try something new this year that gets you out of your comfort zone and challenges you! When it came to the yoga part of this photoshoot, it was my first time doing some different and challenging hand stands! I definitely fell down a time or two but yet, kept trying again and again and the challenge was totally worth it! If you’re afraid of trying something new this year, don’t be! Getting out of our comfort zone and got for it! Trying something new this year is an awesome goal to have!”
