Elle Fanning lime coat, ripped jeans, sheer blouse

After featuring fashionstas Kendall and Kylie Jenner, I wanted to feature another set of stylish sisters: Dakota and Elle Fanning.

We took a peek at Dakota’s college-casual street style last month, so next up is her little sis Elle. Though we covered Elle’s style back when she was a pre-teen, it’s evolved a lot since then.

For this A Week in Her Style post, we’ll show you some of the best street style looks this The Great star has worn, as well as a week’s worth of outfit ideas so you can channel Elle’s look this summer:


Elle Fanning denim mini skirt and crop top

A denim mini skirt is totally on-trend and we love how Elle styled hers for summer. This cute and casual on-the-go look is easy to recreate. Just wear a dark wash denim mini with a striped crop top for a breezy, easygoing look.

Classic white Converse are easy to slip on, plus they’re ultra-comfortable. Add a crossbody bag and circle sunnies and you have the perfect chill summer outfit.


Elle Fanning lace dress and riding boots

Since it can be worn so many different ways, a little white dress is a great piece to have on hand for summer. I like Elle’s dress because it reminds me of the ones on Chloé’s Spring 2015 runway. It has that lacy, grandma’s doily look.

Though I’ve seen them paired with knee-high gladiators, I really love how Elle paired her LWD with knee-high boots and socks. You probably shouldn’t wear the boots when it’s super-hot outside, but on a chillier day it’s the perfect contrast of delicate and rough.


Elle Fanning floral skirt and gray coat

This look may be for cooler weather, but if you nix the coat you have a gorgeous summer outfit. Pair a floral mini skirt with a black top for a classy yet girly ensemble. You’ll look extra chic when you add a pair of floral shoes, as well as a structured white crossbody bag.


Elle Fanning lime coat, ripped jeans, sheer blouse

This is another cool-weather outfit that can easily be mixed up for summer. Start with a sheer blouse (add a cami underneath for coverage) and either dark-colored jeans or shorts.

The standout piece in this look is definitely the bright green coat. We don’t want to scrap that element entirely, so choose a lightweight cardigan in a similar color. Jeweled heels or flats and a top-handle bag add the finishing touches to this sophisticated ensemble.


Elle Fanning suede fringe jacket and Hello Kitty belt

One thing I love about Elle is that she isn’t afraid to take style risks. Fringe is a big trend this season and a suede fringed jacket is a great way to jump into the trend.

Dress the jacket down for daytime with a striped tee and dark jeans, then have fun with your footwear. She paired striped socks with peep-toe shoes, but you can also play it safe and forgo the socks. Finish the look with a belt; Elle chose a playful Hello Kitty one, but any belt will do.


Elle Fanning burnt orange skirt and black-and-white jacket

If you have been paying attention to the fashion world at all lately I am going to assume you know that the ’70s trend is one of the biggest of this season. Elle channeled the decade perfectly in this look, and I love it.

Start with a faux leather, burnt orange mini skirt and pair it with a fun printed jacket (this one reminds me of Elle’s) to create a ’70s vibe. Balance out these bold pieces with a gray tee and brown booties. Groovy.


Elle Fanning shorts suit and red blouse

For a empowered look, try a short suit like Elle’s. The red silk blouse really pops against the neutral gray suit. The longer boyfriend-style fit of the jacket gives the look a relaxed feel and is the perfect mix between masculine and feminine. Matching red loafers and a thin black belt finish off the look.


What do you think of Elle’s style? Did you like any of these outfits? Which one is your favorite? Is your style more like Elle’s or Dakota’s? Who would you like to see next? Let me know in the comments!
