HOW TO: DISTRESS YOUR TEES

Spring is coming soon (uh, we swear!) and with it comes fresh new outfits and cool new layering styles.

You might have seen lots of insta babes layering bralettes with distressed tees these days, and it looks hella good.

To recreate it, all you need are a few key layering ingredients and you're set. It's minimum effort and maximum cute factor.

Below are 4 tried + true ways you can DIY distress your own tees at home.

YOU NEED
An oversized tee
A bralette
Scissors
Chalk
A measuring tape


HOW TO DO IT
Measure, mark and cut your tee based on the style you want.


THE STYLES

THE 'EEZY
How To: Cut small holes all over. Add some larger tears throughout.


THE "V"
How To: Cut along neckline into a V. Don't cut off the collar!



ALL MESH
How To: Measure on your body + crop at midsection.


SIDE BABE
How To: Cut holes from shoulder down to midsection.

BEHIND THE SCENES: GAL'ENTINE'S DAY BRUNCH

ICYMI, we hosted a Gal'entine's Day Brunch for our main #ardenebabes. We wanted to hang with our gurls and actually meet some of them face to face for the very first time! Let's just say, they are even more beautiful, inside & out, than we could have ever imagined. 

In true Ardene style, we ate brunch (hello, maple pepper bacon), had our auras read, hand crafted love potions, and of course, we DIY'd some tees; yeezy style. We gave away some serious Rose + Vine swag, bodysuits, and cool basics from our latest collection. All the ingredients for perfectly layered outfits + the perfect day.

Check it out.

MUSIC MONDAY: OUR FAVE GRAMMY MOMENTS


Every year, we watch our fave artists gather to celebrate their musical achievements. Ok, and we also watch for gorge red carpet outfits, performances + acceptance speeches as our idols collect little gold Grammy statues.

After last night's 59th Grammy Awards, we're particularly obsessed with Queen Bey and Adele. Um, if we weren't obsessed enough already...

Here's a recap of how these two boss babes totally killed it.

FAVE MOMENT 1:
When Adele won literally 5 awards.

- Album of the Year
- Song of the Year
- Record of the Year
- Best Pop Solo Performance
- Best Pop Vocal Album

FAVE MOMENT 2:
How humble Adele was about winning over Beyoncé... And when Adele literally broke her Grammy in half for Bey! That's real gurl power right there.

FAVE MOMENT 3:
Adele's tribute performance for George Michael was also beyond. There was some audio glitching, and Adele literally stopped the performance and started over. That takes serious guts.

FAVE MOMENT 4:
Queen Bey crushing it and bringing home 2 awards.

- Best Music Video
- Best Urban Contemporary Album

Ok, Bey is a goddess and there's nothing she can't do...even pregnant with twins. Her performance was all motherly and saintly + her gold outfit was everything. 

We heart you, Bey.

FAVE MOMENT 5:
When Beyoncé walked out onto stage looking like this.

HOW TO: HOST A GAL'ENTINE'S DAY PARTY

Throwing a Gal'entine's Day party is more than just an (ah-mazing) excuse to have friends over. It's a way to spend time with your people + celebrate your squadship. 

Whether you belong to the no feels club or you're attached to your SO... it's always a good time to throw down with the gurls.

Here's how to host the perfect Gal'entine's Day Party.

STEP 1
Send out your invites.

We made some pretty funny printable Gal'entine's Day cards. Print 'em, cut 'em and send 'em!



STEP 2
Play games + do activities!

- Put on some tunes
- DIY some spa stuff, like Bubble Bath with Essential Oils
- Make a paper fortune teller and get metaphysical
- Watch like 10 gal'entine's day movies in a row


STEP 3
Have snax. A party just isn't a party without heart shaped chocolates and sparkling juice. And ice cream. All the ice cream.


STEP 4
Make sure you have a camera to take a million pics! It's all about the memories, babes.

BEHIND THE SCENES: ROSE + VINE

If you're not already familiar with our latest collection of Rose + Vine bralettes and intimates, get excited. This season is all about layering bralettes under cute basics.

We had such a good time on shoot. Yep, we really stuffed our faces with those chocolates in the pics. We drank sparkling juice, ate ice cream from the carton and snapped a lot of polaroids. 

Pretty much the makings of a perfect party. 


Show us how you layer! Follow @ardene on insta and use #ardenelove.

DANS LES COULISSES : ROSE + VINE


Si tu ne connais pas encore notre dernière collection de bralettes et lingerie de Rose + Vine, on a tout pour toi. Cette saison on superpose des bralettes avec des pièces essentielles.

On s'est tellement amusé durant le shoot. Ouep, chocolats sans fin inclus. On a bu du jus mousseux, mangé de la crème glacée et on a pris des tonnes de polaroids. 

C'était la fête parfaite.


Montre-nous comment tu superposes ! Suis @ardene sur insta avec #ardenelove.
