HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS—Peppermint Coffee, Sweaters and Socks

Sponsored in part by Aerie

The last of your assignments are turned in. The air is turning crisp. You are craving your mom’s pumpkin pie. That must mean one thing—it is time to head home for the holidays!

We are pretty sure numbers one, two and three on your holiday agenda are catching up with your family and friends. While swapping stories and sharing photos, keeping cozy in holiday layers is our favorite way to lounge. Our go-to destination for casual holiday looks is Aerie. From their leggings to knitwear, Aerie has pieces that speak to our real holiday plans of surrounding ourselves with loved ones at home.

Our Style Gurus are REALLY excited to be heading home for the holidays as well, and even more so now that they are equipped with cozy holiday looks thanks to Aerie. Check out their holiday plans and picks of their favorite Aerie pieces to layer up in this season. Be sure to join in on the fun and share what makes you REAL this holiday on social media using the hashtag #AerieReal.


Check out Maggie and her home for the holidays story!

CollegeFashionista: What are your holiday break plans?

Maggie Arfman: For break, I’m planning on doing nothing but relaxing with peppermint favored coffee and spending time with my family and friends at home. I’ll probably binge watch a few shows and start reading the books I have had piled up on my nightstand since the beginning of the semester. The school year is so busy, so it will be nice to have peaceful time with the people I love most.

CF: Favorite holiday styling tip?

MA: Red lips are a must. Over break, you’re probably going to be forced to attend countless Christmas-themed parties. Whether it’s a tacky sweater or cocktail party, red lips work for any holiday look!

CF: What are your picks from Aerie?

MA: Whenever I go to Aerie, I always grab a pair of socks (or two) with my purchase! Aerie’s socks are always super cute and, most importantly, comfortable! They are perfect for the holiday season to keep your feet warm and styling.
