Frequently Asked Questions
TRY ON SERVICE
How does your try-on service work?
For those who are new to our brand, we offer the option of providing a second size to try on- free of charge- so that you can find your perfect fit.
Ordering the second size is easy—just select your second size in the scroll down menu under OPTIONAL (it’s right next to the size scroll down menu). We will ship both sizes out, and you have five days after your package is delivered to try on the two sizes and send back whichever size that doesn’t work out for you, unworn and undamaged. So long as you put your optional size in the mail in our return envelope by the fifth day after delivery, you will only be charged for the item you keep.
What if I don’t return the second size within the five-day period?
If you do not return the second size within the five day period (again, that’s five days AFTER your package is delivered), then you will be charged for the item. We will also have to charge you for the second size if it comes back with signs of wear or damage.
Can I wear the second size out and about during the five-day period?
You can if you want to buy both sizes! However, if you only want to buy the item in one size, the size you don’t want must be in unworn and undamaged condition. Otherwise we will have to charge for the worn but returned item.
How do I know which two sizes to order?
We know that finding your size can be tricky! So we have our handy fit guide in our FAQ page, as well as some pointers on the individual product pages. Also, some of the pants are made to fit quite snug, so if you’re into a looser fit, order a size larger than normal. If you want any help with figuring out which size will work best for you, please shoot us an email at email@example.com.
Do I have to use the try-on service?
Of course not! If you know your size (love ya returning customers!), please go ahead and just order the size you want.
PRODUCT DETAILS & CARE
Where do you make your products?
AELLA is proudly made in the USA in Los Angeles, California.
What’s the deal with your fabric (i.e., why does it feel so awesome)??
Research, experimentation and experience led us to the signature Italian jersey that is our foundation. With flawless fit, feel and shape, this warp-knit jersey is woven like a fabric to balance durability, stretch (without shine) and lifetime color retention. This fabric is manufactured using sustainable processes that minimize waste and water usage. You've made the world a better place just by putting us on.
How do I wash my AELLA stuff?
All of our products are MACHINE WASHABLE. That’s right, no more dry cleaning hassle or bills! You just need to:
- Machine wash cold with like colors in the gentle cycle without bleach
- Lay flat to dry
- Cool to warm iron as needed
Also, if you’re still into dry cleaning, you can certainly do that as well, but just know that you can actually wash them at home.
Where can I wear my AELLA clothes?
Everywhere! Although our clothes are made to be worn during the work week, they seamlessly transition into evening and the weekend. Since our fabric is wrinkle resistant, our clothes are perfect for traveling. Some of our customers even work out in our clothes!
That being said, some of our styles fit snug, so if you work in a REALLY conservative office, you may find that those styles are best suited for casual Fridays or for those days that you just need to wear comfortable clothes regardless of the dress code.
What’s my size?Please use the comparative size guide below to find the right AELLA style for you.
I’m petite, will the clothes fit me?
Probably! Many of our petite customers are able to order their usual size and simply alter the length of the pants or make minor alterations to the blazers. If you want to run any questions by us about sizing, just email us!
I’m tall, will the pants for long enough for me?
Most of our pants are long enough to still look cute on our tall customers! We do want to note that the Classic Flares may not be long enough to wear with heels if you are 5’9” and over, and the Signature Ankle Skinny is a touch higher on your leg (but still cute). All of the inseams are noted on the product pages for the pants, but if you have any additional questions, email us!
What payment methods do you accept?We are pleased to accept the following methods of payment:
- AMERICAN EXPRESS
