HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS—Sweatpants and San Francisco

Sponsored in part by Aerie

Our favorite thing about the holiday season is going home to spend time with our family and friends. The agenda doesn’t have to include some over-the-top plans or tropical destination. We plan on spending our break lounging with our loved ones, with a cup of cocoa in hand and layered in our favorite pieces.

And just because comfortable and casual are the names of the game, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style. Aerie is our go-to shopping destination for REAL holiday wear that speaks to you. Whether you are mad for plaid or obsessed with winter neutrals, their holiday collection is as amazing as you are!

Want to know how our Style Gurus are keeping it REAL this holiday season? Check out their picks from Aerie and how they plan on spending their holiday breaks. Be sure to join the conversation and let us know what makes you #AerieREAL as you head home for the holidays!

CollegeFashionista: What are your holiday break plans?

Sahana Holla: I am flying home to San Francisco, California. I plan on interning while being there, as well as spending lots of time with my best friends and my family.

CF: Favorite holiday gift to give?

SH: My favorite holiday gift to give is definitely Aerie sweatpants. They are extremely comfortable and are for sure a holiday essential of mine. They can be dressed up with a turtleneck and a leather jacket for a fashionable outdoor outfit, and great to lounge in around the house. The versatility of the sweatpants make them the perfect holiday gift

CF: Favorite holiday styling tip?

SH: My favorite holiday styling tip is keeping it comfortable and warm. I love layering basic pieces and dressing it up with simple jewelry. Some of the best ensembles follow the motto “less is more”, and especially in the cold, staying comfortable and warm is key!
