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. :)”

What Makes Lauren LeBouef #AerieREAL

What Makes Lauren #AerieREAL:
“For me, having a versatile outfit that is basic for many occasions is very essential! That is why sports bras and comfy yoga pants are the perfect combo for lounging around the house on those comfy days, grabbing coffee with friends, or even a sunset yoga session on the beach! This Aerie outfit is definitely becoming one of my favorites!”

What Makes Lauren LeBouef #AerieREAL

“When discussing fashion and clothing brands, there is a certain pressure to fit a “mold” or “box” and ultimately to be and look a certain way.  Which is a lot of pressure for young women around the world. But the truth of the matter is, we were all created in a unique way which makes you not only you, but the beautiful you. I’m honored to be apart of the “#AerieREAL campaign” since it encourages girls to embrace their beautiful individual qualities that they might see as imperfections. Like most young woman, I also experience those moments, but I want to be able to be a light for girls that inspires and reassures them that their unique flaws are apart of being human, be who YOU are. Embrace your freckles, height, and beautiful body shape. By doing this, you will not only inspire yourself, but you will also empower the girls surrounding. So the next time you glance in the mirror, remember that you were made beautiful. So embrace it!” What Makes Lauren LeBouef #AerieREAL

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!”
