Elizabeth & Clarke Subscription Box Review + Coupon – Spring 2018

elizabeth and clarke spring work wardrobe clothes subscription box

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 and clarke clothing subscription box unboxing and review

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 sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Elizabeth & Clarke Spring Collection Review

elizabeth and clarke invoice

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.

  1. the site appears to be down. did they go out of business?

  2. I think all the tops suit you very well they are gorgeous JMO.
    I think the styles are slimming and very modern. I may not work but I am seriously considering this sub just from this review and seeing how good they look on you.

  3. I have similar fit issues to you and while I love their structured pieces I’ve just started avoiding their shirts with more volume. I end up skipping some seasons and then subbing it the ones I like from those collections in later seasons.

  4. I’m really curious. The 2nd shirt doesn’t fit you well. Are you planning to return or exchange it?

    If you can’t return the 2nd, I see potential. The neckline is lovely and it appears to fit in the shoulders.
    1. I think you could put a couple pleats or darts in the front to take in the body below the bust. (My sister who sews constantly, might put in darts). Tuck in the shirt (and if it’s too tight in the hips, take out the side seams there). There was a time when we wouldn’t even think of not tucking in our shirts (we also wore slips & nylons with all skirts!) You could wear it with your jeans with a nice belt too. But tuck it in! It might not even needs the darts tucked in.
    2. The sleeves also seem large and could be taken in slightly and either move the cuffs up or roll the cuffs/sleeves. It appears that the sleeves are designed to be rolled and buttons and you didn’t show us that option.

    Sometimes we get in a bit of a rut on how to wear our clothes (Look at people over 40). When we leave our comfort zone, some of these styles really suit us well.

  5. Buyer beware. I have cancelled my subscription because their customer service is unreasonable. (Long story below)
    I received The Collins from the Winter box and am unable to wear it because of incessant itching that it causes me. I anticipate that if I tried to wear it, it would cause hives and other skin issues. I have never had an allergic reaction to ANY clothing EVER and have no other allergies. I contacted the company to ask for suggestions, and they told me to use fabric softener and a fabric shampoo (which I had to pay extra for) when laundering it. I did this with no relief. When I reached back out to say that it didn’t work, the customer service manager (who told me the first recommendation) said there was nothing they could do for me (no credit, refund, exchange, etc). I called to speak to someone, and it took 6 calls to get someone on the phone, who ended up being the customer service manager as well. She reiterated that there was nothing they could do. When I asked to speak to her supervisor, she said the only person over her was the CEO, whom she said was out of the country. I asked for a way to contact the CEO, and she told me they couldn’t give out her contact info. I asked for a call or email from the CEO, and I’m still waiting over a week later.
    I cancelled my subscription because I refuse to do business with a company whose CUSTOMER SERVICE manager was unable to help rectify a situation. I understand that they have their returns policy, but there are also situations where a customer service manager can (and should) override a policy, and this is one of them. I’m still waiting to hear from the CEO, and I hope that she will contact me soon.

  6. This is one of my favorite collections from E&C. Everything is so well structured and easy to wash. I think the sleeveless tops look much more expensive than they really are.

    • “Structured” is the magic word for me! I love that these pieces have that polished, professional structure while being way more exciting to wear than a plain white button-up (though I do love a classic, well-fitting Oxford…)! Thanks so much for reading, Ks! I’m glad you’re loving this order as much as I am!!!

  7. That first shirt is amazing! It’s perfect!

  8. The first and third shirts look like they were made for you!

  9. Really classy and unique details. Love it!

  10. The grey shirt is outstanding on you.

    • Thank you so much, Melissa!!! I’m digging the misty tones in this order.
