Elizabeth & Clarke Subscription Box Review – Winter 2014
Elizabeth & Clarke is a women’s clothing subscription box – and they specialize in just shirts and tops! They make all their styles in house, and only do a limited amount of new designs each season, so they are able to keep the prices very reasonable. Each season you get to preview the tops and pick your favorites. (There are usually 3 new tops, and a few classic styles they have available every season).
Elizabeth & Clarke sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Elizabeth & Clarke
The Cost: $30 for one shirt, $50 for two shirts, $60 for three shirts (once a quarter/season)
The Products: Classic shirts with on trend styling and materials.
Ships to: US (and International countries for a $25 shipping surcharge).
The Williams Tee (35% Modal 65% Microfiber Poly)
This long-sleeved tee has an asymmetrical hem that drapes longer on the left side. Sometimes I like asymmetrical hems and sometimes I don’t, but this one works for me. It’s a great and simple piece to pair with skinny jeans.
The Swan (50% Viscose, 50% Acrylic – Dry Clean Only)
This sweater is very soft and semi-sheer, so you’ll definitely need to wear a layer under it. It also has elbow patches, which I love:
The only problem is that these elbow patches start right below my elbows, so I’m hoping putting this sweater through the laundry will shrink it the right amount. (I take “dry clean only” as a challenge).
(I had the same issue with a elbow patch sweater from Elizabeth & Clarke mailing a few seasons ago, and it did the trick).
The Bronte (100% Microfiber Poly)
This sleeveless top is two different length sheer layers. It’s really beautiful, but the cut just isn’t flattering on my body type. If I was to wear it as is it makes me look a little boxy. But it does look much better for me under a blazer or fitted jacket/cardigan.
Verdict: At $20 a piece, I’m always so impressed with the quality of the tops you get for the cost. For sizing reference, I’m usually a medium/large in tops, and I’ve been getting a size 10 from Elizabeth & Clarke. I’d say I should probably go down to a size 8 for a more fitted look.
