    1. A lace bralette cute enough to wear as a crop top and comfy enough to forget you're even wearing it! With removable padding, adjustable straps, and a back hook closure you can style in two ways, how can you say no to this?


    Promising review: "I LOVE this bralette and fully intend to wear it as a crop top. It’s so comfortable and provides enough support to wear for regular daily activities. Would even be comfortable enough to sleep in. Definitely going to order more in other colors! Usually wear a 34C and ordered a small." — MAGNADOODLE

    Price: $27.96 (originally $39.95; available in 11 colors and in sizes XXS-XL)

    2. High-waisted leggings with mesh insets to make for sexy breathability. Designed to wick away sweat, these leggings are great for workouts or a day of running errands.


    Promising review: "These leggings are so amazing. They are comfortable and make your legs look and feel amazing. I think everyone should get these leggings, that is how amazing they are. My mum tried them on, and I had to get her a pair because she absolutely loved them. So good!!!" —NANA

    Price: $37.46 (originally $49.95; available in four colors and in sizes XXS-XXL regular, XS-M short, XS-XL long)

    Promising review: "This dress is so comfortable and airy! It fits true to size, and the elastic stays in place very well. The fabric is very lightweight, and I've worn this dress in 90-degree heat without it feeling burdensome. The color is also absolutely amazing. Overall a wonderful dress and a summer staple in my opinion." —NORI

    Price: $41.21 (originally $54.95; available in sizes XS-L)

    4. A lightweight fleece hoodie with an oversized fit, so you can drape it over any look and still feel cute!


    Promising review: "This summer-weight sweatshirt is so soft and comfy! It’s great with leggings, or you can even wear it over a bathing suit! It is generously sized; for an oversized fit, buy your size and size down if you don’t want the oversized look." —NIKNAK54

    Price: $29.97 (originally $49.95; available in eight colors and in sizes XXS-XXL)

    5. Drawstring shorts made with a super soft and light woven fabric for the camp counselor look of your dreams! And did I mention front *and* back pockets?!

    Price: $23.97 (originally $35.95; available in seven colors and in sizes XXS-XL)

    6. A gauze midi slip dress for a breezy and beachy feel. And the side slits make this dress even easier to move around in.


    Promising review: "I absolutely loved the look of the dress on the model online, so I just had to have it! I have no problem with the straps or anything. It is a little longer on me because I’m shorter (5-foot-3), but it still looks super cute. It’s a little more loose of a fit which makes it super comfortable. I love how lightweight it is, and how you can dress it up or down." —MELISHA D

    Price: $22.47 (originally $44.95; available in two colors and in sizes XXS-XXL)

    7. A padded lace halter bralette with an elastic band and hook closure to give you the support you need while also rocking a trendy summer look!


    Promising review: "Wore it during a move this past weekend, and I don’t regret it. It was a great pop of color under my athletic tank. It gave me no problems while picking up boxes and moving things around. Very secure. Everything stayed in place. Who says you can’t be comfortable and cute at the same time?! Def buying more." —SPOILEDPRIN

    Price: $27.96 (originally $39.95; available in seven colors and in sizes XS-XL)

    Price: $18.71 (originally $24.95; available in 14 colors and in sizes XXS-XL)

    A model wears the Aerie long sleeve button down cover up in white. It is sheer enough to see the colors of the bathing suit underneath.

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this! I've been trying to find a thin white cover up that looks nice for those pool/beach days. It is a little bit on the bigger side, but I love that about it. It's a great flowy material with cute side slits and is the perfect length on me to cover me up in the back. I'm 145 lbs 5-foot-7 and ordered a medium, and it fits exactly how I wanted it to. Highly recommend!" —MEGANN

    Price: $26.97 (originally $44.95; available in two colors and in sizes XS-SL)

    Promising review: "Soooo comfy and perfect!! This bathing suit makes me feel confident. It’s a really great top for smaller girls, and I would definitely recommend. I love this bathing suit — it’s different, and it actually fits me!! I don’t have to go through the struggle of gaps in my bathing top." —GABBY

    Price: $19.97 (originally $39.95; available in sizes XXS-XXL)

    Several customers purchased this one size smaller than they normally buy for the perfect slightly oversized look.

    Promising review: "Since I started working from home, whenever I was cold I would wrap my blanket around me to keep warm. So I decided to take a look at Aerie’s lounging clothes and fell in love with this cardigan. I was a little hesitant, but I am glad I trusted my gut and bought it! IT'S THE SOFEST, COZIEST CARDIGAN I'VE EVER OWNED! I wear it all the time around my house now. I plan to buy another one in a different color." — DEZZY1234

    Price: $41.21 (originally $54.95; available in two colors and in sizes XXS-XXL)

    Promising review: "I love how flattering this suit is! It fits better than I imagined, too. The top is adjustable like a wrap dress, which means you can decide how much cleavage to show. Full coverage on the booty. Love the print!! Would purchase in other prints as well!" —KELS

    Price: $41.21 (originally $54.95; available in sizes Regular XXS-XXL and Long XS-XL)

    Price: A bundle of six for $25 (available in eight colors and in sizes XS-XL)

    18. A pair of high-waisted leggings has a weightless touch that also wicks away sweat. Sounds perfect to me!

    A model wears the Aerie Play Real Me high waisted leggings in dusty sage

    Promising review: "I own A LOT of leggings, and these Aerie Play high-waisted leggings are the most comfortable pair I own. I wear them for every day use and for lifting. They're thick, stretchy, and have just the right amount of compression...and they're totally squat-proof!" —CHRISTY

    Price: $29.96 (originally $39.95; available in eight colors and in sizes short XS-XL, regular XXS-XXL, and long XS-XL)

    19. A cropped jacket made with flowy twill, so you are free to wear this as a cover-up or a crop top!

    A model wears the empire cream Aerie twill cropped jacket

    Promising review: "This is a super cool piece. It is really lightweight so you can either wear it as a jacket or as a heavier shirt. I’ve been using it as a piece to throw on over top the Aerie free bra for a bit of additional coverage when I venture out around the neighborhood and grocery store. I’ve paired it with jeans or dresses, worn it as a shirt or overtop something else. It’s more on the oversized side of things — usually I’m a small or medium, I went with small and it’s still got extra room. That’s the vibe I wanted though! Perfect for something light to wear during the spring and summer!" — JASMINEIPA

    Price: $41.21 (originally $54.95; available in XS-XXL)

    20. Smocked shorts with a stretch waistband. Made with a breezy gauze, comfort never looked so good!

    A model wears the Aerie smocked short in blue

    Price: $22.46 (originally $29.95; available in five colors and in sizes XS-M)

    21. A twist-back sports bra so soft, you'll swear you're not wearing one at all! It also has removable padding and wide straps, so support won't be an issue.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this bra! Thank goodness I ordered it in three different colors. The support isn’t overbearing like a lot of bras tend to be, which allows you to wear it all day and for medium-intensity workouts. The padding is awesome and helps create a snug fit! Disclaimer: the color does run a bit when you sweat so I’d recommend washing prior to wearing under light-colored clothing. :)" —BREE

    Price: $24.46 (originally $34.95; available in seven colors and in sizes XXS-XL)

    22. A one-piece ruffle swimsuit with adorable cutouts *and* a halter tie, because you can't have too much of a good thing.


    Promising review: "I could not wait to put this swimsuit on when it came in the mail! It fits exactly how I had hoped it would. I love the ruffles and the keyhole opening. Very flattering!!" —KATELYN

    23. A ribbed knit skirt designed to give you style and comfort with its wide waistband and side slits.

    A model stands on a beach wearing the Aerie ribbed knit skirt in blue vibe

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this skirt. I was nervous to try this because I thought it would be too long; I typically feel like I can't pull of longer skirts or dresses. But this was perfect. Since it is a midi skirt and not a maxi, it of course did not reach the ground on me. It hugged my curves perfectly. And I'm so happy that I wish to buy one of every color!" —TATER TOT

    Price: $20.97 (originally $34.95; available in five colors and in sizes XXS-XXL)

    24. An animal print bikini top you can't help but feel fierce in!

    Promising review: "I love this top! I'm always looking for a good bikini top that provides adequate support in a sports bra size. The real seller for me is the adjustable straps. I'm so happy with it that I'll probably be buying more if they come out with more colors/patterns that I like." —KATIE

    Price: $17.47 (originally $34.95; available in sizes XS-XL)

    25. A distressed crew-neck sweatshirt for an effortless and cozy look. No matter how you dress this up or down, its raw hem can't help but add a bit of edge!

    A model wears the Aerie Sunday soft distressed crew sweater in the color smoked gray

    Promising review: "I was looking for something light and comfy to wear on Arizona summer nights with shorts, and this is perfect! It also fits over my five-month baby bump without being too short! The material is super soft and light, and the color is just awesome!" —AZ MAMA

    Price: $33.71 (originally $44.95; available in eight colors and in sizes XXS-XL)
