Spotlight on Luxe Wardrobe Staples that will last you forever...

10.20.2016


Style Theory: Every so often you come across a brand that not only fits but flatters and makes you look slimmer than you actually are. Step forward Me+Em,  honestly I would not say this if I didn't truly mean it, but the way they expertly cut their clothes, the high quality fabric they use and the flattering designs all result in the most the beautiful collection of clothes.

They are more expensive than the likes of Zara etc, but the quality is absolutely worth it, if you are working on cost per wear Me+Em would win every time. If you are smaller, like me, the cropped trousers fit on the ankle perfectly and the longer ones need to be taken up or worn with heels but either way they look pretty amazing!

Me+Em have just opened a pop up shop in Elizabeth Street, literally 5 mins away from Victoria Station, so I popped in today to check out their latest collection and fell in love with so many pieces..

Firstly, sports luxe the grown up, flattering way..


These trousers are incredibly comfortable on, they have an elasticated waistband (high five!) and just skim the floor when I wear them with heels. They are made from a heavy pointe fabric which hangs beautifully resulting in a flattering silhouette (I sized down one size). I love them smartened up with this pussybow swing top, currently in the sale, it would look just as good with skinny jeans and trainers for a day time look. I will also wear the trousers with a cashmere sweater and heels for a laid back, 'going out to the pub look'..

The dream 'forever' coat....



This coat is definitely a 'forever' coat, the military style transcends trends, it is a classic and can be worn year after year. As soon as I put it on it felt amazing, structured but not stiff, expensive fabric that flatters and falls perfectly. I sized down one size as it was a little big across the shoulders, it really is a fabulous coat, tailored to perfection. It would take an everyday look of a sweater, jeans and trainers up a notch and would look just perfect over an evening dress for a Christmas night out. 
The Button hem slim crop trouser are a fab fit, skimming over lumps and bumps with a flat front that covers a tummy. Just as good with Stan Smiths as with heels, these trousers are classics that will last.

The Slouchy but chic Sunday Jumper..


Slouchy Stripe Turtleneck - Me+Em £149
Half Leather legging - Me+Em £399
Shoes - Zara (old season - similar here)
Ps - I was talking when taking this photo, not pouting!! ha!
The ultimate in breton luxury, this merino, cashmere mix sweater is slouchy, sweater heaven, quite long so perfect for skimming over my bottom and thighs and great paired with leather leggings. I would wear with trainers or slouchy ankle boots with this look. The leggings are incredibly flattering, they are a huge investment but if you are looking to invest these are the best of the bunch...

The Sophisticated Tux..

Shoes - Gucci Marmont 

The most chic Tux that would last literally forever.. all pieces can be worn separately and are beautiful in their own right but together they make a dream evening out combination.

A few other items I have my eye on..
Me+Em - Cable Weekend Jumper £149
Because a winter white jumper always looks amazing with skinny jeans and trainers, chic, minimal and super classy.
Pleated Collar Layering Shirt - Me+Em £99
A great top to wear by itself - also comes in black which I find a little more flattering than white,but this would be great under jumpers and jackets..
Swing Lace Dress Me+Em £135
The perfect Christmas Day dress, eat as much as you like, no one would know, it is heavy fabric that hangs beautifully annddd it has pockets.. I bought a Me+Em swing dress a couple of years ago and still wear it every Christmas.

Have you invested in any luxe staples, where do you shop? Have you bought from Me+Em before what do you think? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxxx
