WHY ERIN LOVES IT

We all want to be comfortable this holiday season while we’re treating ourselves with candy and treats. Stay comfy and cozy and give in to the power of stretchy pants while you’re eating everything!

 

HOW TO WEAR IT

The easiest way to style your two favorite winter pieces is to wear them together. Leggings are the BEST multi-use pieces for your wardrobe: wear them from working out to going out to filling up on food. They won’t miss a beat or a holiday treat!

How To Hygge With Erin

Hygge (“hoo-gah”): the magic that comes from creating your happy place and living the cozy life. We were inspired by this Nordic concept during our holiday photoshoot in Iceland, and we’re still all about that cozy life back in the US! Watch our video with Aerie Stylist, Erin’s tips for getting your hygge on this season.

Start with cozy layers (duh!)

We LOVE the warm Bouclé Oversized Sweaters and soft Sleep Leggings for cozy hygge feels. Throw on our Pom-Tastic Slippers for ultimate cozy!

Add the essentials.

Fuzzy rugs and plush blankets are must-haves for a hygge-ready home. Mix and match soft plush fabrics with fleeces and faux furs for holiday chill.

Set the scene. 

Surround yourself with twinkle lights, handmade art and your fave happy quotes. Sip on a cup of hot cocoa and start living your best hygge life!

Hygge and kisses!

Home For The Holidays Packing Guide

Whether you’re going home for winter break or visiting family for the holiday season, our packing guide will have you prepared!

LAY EVERYTHING OUT

Before you start packing things into your suitcase, lay them on your bed so you can see what you have set out. This will help you remember things you may be forgetting and can help with chronic over-packing.

home-for-the-holidays

Here’s what we’ve packed: Slipper | Lace Keyhole Triangle Bralette | Real Soft® Flannel Sleep Pant | Cable Sweater Jogger | Boucle Turtleneck Sweater | AEO Sateen X Hi-Rise Jegging | AEO Sweater All Weather Boot | Hand Knit Beanie | Hi-Rise Play Legging | Cable Pullover Sweater | Fuzzy Scarf | Aerie Sparkle Crew Socks | Swedish Hasbeens Husband Clog | Lace Longline Bralette | Shine Cheeky + Lace | Boyshort | Cheeky + Shine Waistband

BEGIN WITH THE BASICS

Don’t spend so much time planning your outfits that you forget the basics. Start with your some cute undies, a versatile bralette, warm socks, and your PJs. These are the things you’ll most likely spend the most time in.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

It’s always helpful to check the weather for  your destination. Remember to bring warm clothes and cold weather accessories when needed. Packing the proper shoes is important. Always have an extra pair of weather-friendly shoes.

CHECK IT TWICE

Once you have everything laid out, check your haul twice. After you have everything set to go, pack it up in your suitcase. Keep a carry-on or backpack out for last minute additions.

RELAX!

All the work is done, now snuggle up for some snowflakes and chill. Bring your backpack with you for long trips, making laptops, books, magazines, and snacks easily accessible on the plane or in the car.

#RealWishes Recap: How We Gave Back

This December has been all about #RealWishes. We’ve been giving back in our community and encouraging our girls to join in and help make a difference, no matter how big or small.

We kicked off our project by asking our girls to share their #RealWishes with us, and Iskra surprised our winners with a PJ party. Congrats again to the Sigma Kappa Theta Theta chapter at Albright College! These girls give back to their community all year with monthly visits to their local senior living home, and we were so excited to celebrate them.

Check out more of our #RealWishes below!

1. #RealWishes & REAL dogs!

We collected pet toy and supply donations for Animal Friends, then hosted a puppy break with adoptable and therapy dogs.

2. Sweet break at the University of Pittsburgh 

We surprised Pitt students with a much-needed coffee and sweets break during finals week.

3. Mini Christmas trees at the Ronald McDonald House

Families stay at the Ronald McDonald House while their kids receive treatment at Children’s Hospital, and many will still be there over the holidays. We brought dinner and mini Christmas trees for them to decorate so they could feel a little piece of home while they’re away during tough times.

4. Local women’s shelters

We visited two Pittsburgh women’s shelters this month. We brought cozy accessories and sweet treats to the first group of women, and treated the next group to care packages and manicures.
