Elizabeth & Clarke Subscription Review - December 2013

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.

The Davis Top

From Elizabeth & Clarke:

Inspired by the iconic screen star, the Davis is a structured peplum blouse made with thick, stretchy (and forgiving!) Ponte de Roma knit. Pair with leggings, heels, and statement jewelry for an evening out or add a black skirt or contrasting wide-leg pants for the office.

I think this is my favorite shirt in the box. I love the pleating detail on the collar, and the cut with the peplum waist is very flattering.

FYI – I got a size 10 in all the tops, and found all of them to be a little loose (for reference I’m normally a size Large at ModCloth and Forever 21). Fortunately with the last box I discovered that running these shirts through the washing machine and dryer shrinks them the perfect amount for me!

The Paige Blouse

From Elizabeth & Clarke:

The Paige is as multi-functional as it is beautiful. We were inspired by Summer scarf-shirts and we wanted to bring that idea to Winter. What resulted is a draped, asymmetical blouse with an attached scarf! Wear it wraped around the front, the back, around your neck or thrown over your shoulder.

(Confession – It took me a few tries to figure out a way where the attached scarf piece looks good). This top’s armholes were a little loose, but I think it looks great with a cardigan or blazer, so no problem there!

The Warren Shirt

From Elizabeth & Clarke:

Named after our favorite Senator, this elegant blouse is the perfect work-to-drinks transition piece. The incredibly soft cupro lining will keep you comfy during the day, combined with a slightly rough exterior shell to keep stains at bay. The exposed back zipper adds just a hint of glam.

I wish I could pull of the shoulder pad look – but this is a tough look for me. I actually think it looks better on me with the zipper in the front! I may try this with a cardigan or blazer as well.

Verdict: As always, I’m so impressed with the quality of the fabric and construction of Elizabeth & Clarke pieces. They definitely are worth more than the $20 price per shirt in my opinion. What shirts did you pick this quarter?

  1. This is the first sub box I’ve really loved so far. I got both black tops and they’re fabulous. I also got the cream long sleeve button down shirt. It’s incredibly well made and from high quality material, too. I wasn’t over the moon with the spring collection when I made my selections yesterday but when I looked again today I liked them a lot more. Just debating between going down a size from a 10 to an 8. I’m oddly shaped in a way since I’m a 38 DD on top but a 27 waist and 37 hips. Since you have to dress to fit your largest, um, asset, the 10 is perfect. But it left a lot of room below the girls. I’m used to having things tailored for this reason and these shirts are definitely worth that investment!

    • The scarf top was WAAAY to big in a size 10 (the others fit much better albeit a little loose). So I just slipped on a black bandeau under the blouse and voila! Perfect!

  2. I had received E&C since they launched but decided to cancel this shipment. None of these shirts interested me this month. I am a little tempted for spring, but may reduce my subscription to only two pieces.

  3. I had never heard of this but I think I might subscribe at some point (not really into the spring collection, though). I love that the sizes are real women’s sizing vs. the small/medium/large that Golden Tote does. It’s so hard to accurately size when there are only those three options. I had to return my entire December Golden Tote even though I liked my pieces due to sizing.

  4. I love these tops. I got the Warren shirt as well, and amazingly after some quick sewing tricks I was able to pull the shoulder pads out, and with a cardigan it looked perfect. I also found this shirt can be worn reversed with the zipper in front , like a jacket, and it looked great.

  5. I chose the same Davis top and was my favorite. It was well constructed and the style is flattering. I also chose the Elizabeth blouse and the material was nice but the cut was not as flattering for my body.

    They just released Spring line is disappointing. I wish they had more choices.

    • Me too, especially since the Liz tee is a repeat, and another is as well, just in a different color. I get bringing back faves but maybe compensate those who already bought them by not counting them as part of the total number of collection items offered.
