Elizabeth & Clarke Subscription Box Review + Coupon– Spring 2017
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).

This is a review of Elizabeth and Clarke’s unstainable collection for Spring 2017.
Each box includes a packing sheet of each shirt with a simple description of each included design.
Also included is an info form about their collection that quarter, complete with fabric content, care instructions, and a full description.
Each of these Unstainable shirts also came with a well-designed care instructions tag so you can know exactly how to keep the Unstainable fabric perfect.
The Unstainable Charles – (100% crepe de chine; machine wash/dryer safe)
I’m starting my review off with my favorite top this month! This is a cap-sleeved blouse with an open tie collar. I don’t own any shirts this color but I think I need to own more because I love this. The neckline has buttons so you can control the amount of skin you show and change it up with whether or not you tie the neck.
This shirt is flattering at all angles and I love that the fabric is lightweight but not see through at all.
I also love it dressed up with a skirt (would also look amazing with a pencil skirt), or under a blazer.
The Unstainable Laurent – (100% crepe de chine; machine wash/dryer safe)
This shirt is one I wouldn’t have picked up for myself, but I really love it after having it in my hands. The material is the same lightweight, Unstainable fabric that breathes well and repels all water and oil based stains. I love that I don’t have to wear a cami under this even though it’s white.
I also love the sleeves rolled up for a more comfortable look. Plus, it has two snaps at the bust so there are no worries at all about gaping!
The Unstainable Davin – (100% crepe de chine; machine wash/dryer safe)
This is a fantastic not-basic basic blouse. It features asymmetrical knife pleats across the front, and the back of the neck has a zipper to help with the higher neckline. There’s also doubled layers of fabric so you get 100% opacity. While this wears really well on its own, it also offers endless styling possibilities! Tucked into a skirt or pants, with or without a blazer, under a cardigan with jeans, you name it. I love having high-quality layering pieces like this.
Here, I’m wearing it with Elizabeth & Clarke’s Unstainable Grant Blazer.
The Verdict: I love Elizabeth & Clarke’s collection for Spring 2017! I love that they’re showcasing their Unstainable fabric which is just an amazing feature for work wear, especially for women. I think the designs are flattering, stylish, and versatile. Obviously, this subscription is great if you work in a setting that requires a professional wardrobe, but even though I don’t work in an office, I have to say that I really love feeling like it’s actually easy and comfortable to dress nice and break out of my normal work-at-home mom uniform (without worrying about stains or sticky kid-fingers) with pieces that can be dressed up or down.
I do have to comment on the fact that Elizabeth & Clarke did recently increase their prices, in order to maintain their high-quality products while their costs have increased. Their prices doubled them from $30/shirt to $60/shirt. It is a steep increase that puts their subscription and products in a different budget bracket, but I absolutely feel the quality is the same great level I’m used to from them and is worth it – particularly if your wardrobe requires some professional pieces. Paying $30/shirt always felt like a great deal to me for what you get from E&C. I know it’s a hard but necessary call for their business!
