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. :)”

One Jean, Three Ways Featuring How Do You Wear That?

If you’ve been searching for the perfect denim this season, look no further. We’re obsessed with our entire line of Denim X, but one jean in particular is all over our radar: the AEO Denim X Hi-Rise Jegging in Torn Dreams. Though we adore the heavily distressed details and super light wash, a pair of jeans like these are unexpected during a time when we tend to gravitate toward darker washes. You may be asking yourself, How Do You Wear That? Blogger Caitlyn is here to answer that question for you. See how she styled one jean, three ways below.

Look #1: Breezy and Casual
We love how chic a soft button down looks tucked in to the Hi-Rise Jegging. Caitlyn pulled together her look with a fun crossbody bag, which serves as a great functional accessory. This look holds on to the last bit of summer, but it could easily transition into fall with a darker button down top and booties.

Look #2: Understated Prep 
Layering is something we look forward to every fall. A button down shirt under a sweater makes for the perfect coffee-date look, especially paired back with two-piece heels. The neutral mix of colors on top keep the look grounded and classic against the trend-right denim.

Look #3:Vintage Vibes
A vibrant vintage cutoff tank or t-shirt packs a punch when paired with ripped denim. Rock this throwback look all year long by adding a fringe jacket in cooler weather. A statement belt and a crossbody satchel pull the edgy look together.
