Elizabeth & Clarke is a women’s clothing subscription box all about polished, cute tops. They began with the mission of perfecting and extrapolating on the idea of the plain white shirt—though you'll now find pops of classic colors in their designs, the company is still dedicated to creating stylish essentials that are versatile, high-quality, and affordable.
Elizabeth & Clarke only designs a limited amount of new tees, blouses, sweaters, and tops 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 three new tops and a few classic styles that return from collection to collection. They also offer an "Unstainable" collection, which is just what it sounds like—crisp tops made specifically to resist stains from all sorts of spills (including wine)!
Each season, you can pick the tops you'd like to receive, or leave it up to the folks at Elizabeth & Clarke to decide for you. If a size or style isn't quite right, you can always exchange or return the item. Returns and exchanges are free in the U.S.

Elizabeth & Clarke Spring Collection Review
Here's the invoice for the tops in the box. Just as an FYI, I'm usually between a size 6-8 (so, medium, basically) on top and a 36B. I've got relatively broad shoulders and hips to match, which can impact how things fit (especially at the hem). I'm also just 5' 3" if that helps you understand where and how things fall on me.
Here's the card for the spring collection, which has details about each top in the box.
The Murphy Top, Size 6
The first top in the box is just the kind of unique, crisp, and professional top I'd expect from this subscription! I love the silvery sage color and the ponte scuba fabric. (It's got that futuristic scuba vibe without being uncomfortably thick or foamy-feeling.) The structured cut is so flattering, especially with the peplum-esque hemline. The best part? This soft, slightly stretchy top is machine washable!
The Shea Top, Size 6
This vegan silk top didn't work for my body quite as well as the first one. I think it needs a waistline—it'd be a bit more flattering tucked into a pencil skirt. I did love the interesting color. In some lighting, it looks lavender. In others, it looks platinum white. I like the pleating details on the spine, too. Oh, and this one is also machine washable! It's those kinds of uncommon accents that sets these tops apart from what I'd find at the department store.
The Brennan Top, Size 6
This top might be my favorite shirt I've received from this subscription! It's perfectly professional, but this shirt feels downright cool, too! The body of the top is ponte de roma knit, while the shoulder details are vegan silk. I really like the shape across the bust and shoulders, and I loooove the raw edges. Best of all, this top (which is also machine washable) fits me sooo nicely. It's got the kind of structure I like in work tops, and the unique style I look for in clothes in general.
The Verdict: What an awesome Elizabeth & Clarke order! While the silver top wasn't quite right for me, the other two tops were incredibly flattering, gorgeously made, and maybe best of all, machine washable! I've been nothing but impressed by the consistently solid quality and fit of the looks in this subscription. $40.00 per shirt is about what I'd pay for a work shirt at a nicer store or higher-end department store. Yes, I've found workwear for less than that before, but I can say honestly that those tops don't hold up to numerous washes and wears nearly as well as my Elizabeth & Clarke looks do. They're truly investment pieces.
