Spotlight on Tailoring and Wardrobe Staples

11.01.2017


Me + Em £169
Style Theory: When looking for the perfect wardrobe staples and some great tailoring I always go to Me+Em, their fabric and cuts are way better than any on the high street. The clothes fit well, always skimming over lumps and bumps and hang well ensuring you feel really good in them. The good new is I have a 15% off DISCOUNT CODE until 4th December - use code MYSTYLE.

They are the ideal pieces to take you seamlessly into the winter months and provide you with the perfect capsule wardrobe. I tend to size down as in general their cut is slightly on the big side and the clothes (particularly the trousers) are made to fit neatly so do not be scared to wear them super neat. If I was still working in an office I would literally have a wardrobe of work clothes from Me+Em, as it is my work is pretty relaxed in general so I gravitate towards more relaxed pieces, with a few pairs of trousers thrown into the mix.

I had a try on session in the Elizabeth Street store today, these are the pieces that caught my eye...
Me + Em £169
The dress above (I am wearing at the very top) is beautiful on, the perfect Christmas dress, I love it with ankle boots, it will also look great with tan knee high boots for a Christmas day out. I have a bit of a tummy and normally shy away from dresses like this as they accentuate it but this one, due to it's heavy fabric, skimmed over my tummy and hung beautifully. I love the high neck alongside the deep V and the red colour is incredibly flattering. I sized down to a size 8 as it does come up a little big.

Blouse Me+Em £169
Trousers Me+Em £119
The silk blouse feels amazing on and the pink mixed with red and black looks great. It looks fab as a work blouse with the trousers but will look equally as good with boyfriend jeans and heels or trainers. Expensive but utterly luxurious. Again size down this is an 8.
Blouse Me+Em £169
Trousers Me+Em £119
These are THE best trousers, so flattering, they have a flat front so no bulging pleats. They are gently tapered for a lovely silhouette and fit like a dream. I am wearing a size 8 and they fit perfectly, they are neat but super flattering.
Blouse Me+Em - £149
Cord Trousers Me+Em - £139
Of course I fell in love with this red blouse, it is a beautiful tone of red and so flattering across my shoulders. The bow is a really generous size and can be worn so many ways and the crepe fabric of the top hangs beautifully. I am wearing a size 8 I would say this comes up a little big.
Blouse Me+Em - £149
Cord Trousers Me+Em - £139
Who would have thought I would have been desperate for a pair of brown cords, I adore them!! Again they are cut beautifully, love the with the burgundy boots but also they look great clashed with red. The ones I am wearing are size 8.
Me+Em £189
Jeans - J Brand £200
Me+Em £189
The cosiest, slouchiest jumper ever, perfect with leather leggings and trainers or wellies for crisp winter walks. It comes up huge I am wearing a size 8 but would be tempted to size down to a 6.
Blouse Me+Em £169
Trousers Me+Em £149
The deep green colour of this blouse is gorgeous on, again I sized down
Blouse Me+Em £169

Trousers Me+Em £149
These are the ultimate in sports luxe trousers, they are incredibly comfortable and look just as good with trainers as with heels. I sized down on these too.
Trousers Me+Em £149
Love the stud detail at the bottom of these trousers, they give them the edge. These are a size 10 in the photo (my normal size) but they were a little big so size down.

Are you a fan of Me+Em? I know they are top end price wise of what I would normally look at but they are such amazing quality and all timeless pieces that you can wear year after year. With the 15% discount code MYSTYLE it definitely makes buying a piece or two a good investment.

Let me know what you think? Thanks for reading and until next time Fran xxx

  1. Great post Fran, so useful to have sizing and fit info. MeandEm clothing always looks great quality and I've never bought, I'm not sure why?! This season I am seriously tempted by some of the knitwear and trousers, finding it really hard to get good quality, well cut trousers and am now fed up with ordering and returning items!
