How To Style The Bell Sleeve Dress With Elements Of Ellis

This Fall, it’s all about channeling a bohemian vibe. One dress that screams boho chic is out Bell Sleeve Dress. Kacie from Elements of Ellis transitions her summer to fall #AEOSTYLE effortlessly as she pairs it back to darker accessories that bring out the coziness of the season. Get to know Kacie and the inspiration behind her look below.

Meet Kacie: Hi, my name is Kacie.  I’m a twenty-something year old California native, wife, mom to two doggies, and blogger. I was born and raised in a small, country town in the northern part of Northern California, but I now live in the Sacramento area. I was a total tomboy growing up but somehow morphed into a fashion lover. Elements of Ellis, formerly Kacie’s Kloset, was born in April 2012. I want Elements of Ellis to be a place people come for some fashion inspiration and a laugh.

What Inspired Kacie’s Look: “Can you hear my dress? It’s screaming, “Hello, Fall!” When I think of fall, I think of flowy, boho dresses…and pumpkin bread. Even though it was 90 degrees outside, this AEO Bell Sleeve Dress made me feel like fall. And that’s what I love about this dress; it’s perfect for transitioning into fall. It has fall vibes, but it’s loose and flowy enough to keep me cool on the hot days we’re still having. Then when the weather cools down, I can wear closed toe booties and a jacket. Welcome to my closet embroidered boho bell sleeve dress. I have a feeling we’re going to spend many fall days together. :)”

How To Style The Button Down Denim Skirt With Lana Jayne

This Fall, we’re seeing the seventies-inspired trend make a big comeback. Our Button Down Denim Skirt is a true style icon that is quintessential retro-vibe. Blogger Lana Jayne pieced together a look that is so effortlessly chic, you’ll have to steal it for yourself. Check out Lana’s #AEOSTYLE below.

Meet Lana: Lana Jayne is a fashion blogger native to Princeton, New Jersey.

How to style button down denim skirt with lana JayneWhat Inspired Lana’s Look: “Remember the jean skirts everyone obsessed over in middle school? I never thought I’d wear one again, and in a hilarious twist of fashion fate, denim skirts are making a major comeback for fall. The difference between 10 years ago and today? The high-waisted, button-front ‘70s spin that’s making this season’s version so much cooler. When American Eagle approached me about a fall styling collaboration—honored is an understatement!—the skirt below was my immediate pick. I like the look with a top tucked in, and this black and white turtleneck was my minimalist take on the trend. I’m also wearing one of my favorite pairs of boots for fall!”
