I am writing to you lovelies from a Winter Wonderland right now. Its quite hard to believe that this year the NW has been covered with snow & ice ten times more than the total times it did in the 16 years I’ve been living here. 🙂 I am starting to get cabin fever a bit as we couldn’t drive since Saturday mid morning, and the kids schools were closed today. On the other hand  I think, this mandatory time at home, is a good time for reflection, reading, and organizing for “on the go” types like myself haha.

Elizabeth & Clarke’s Winter Collection, which I am sharing today, completely surpassed my expectations once again. I’ve been receiving their shirts/tees for a long time now. Every quarter it is so lovely to open a box of shirts that are thoughtfully designed, well made, that offers a great value and in this case super innovative.

If you are new to TheBoxQueen, you can find all my previous Elizabeth & Clarke Reviews Here. These have all the info you need on how the shirt subscription works, and show all my pieces in outfits along with my style tips.

Elizabeth & Clarke recently made almost all their shirts unstainable which is pretty amazing as that fabric really is inventive. (See my initial Unstainable Shirt post here, now this is almost all their shirts & tees) In a recent email, the E&C Founder + CEO Melanie announced that they increased the price of each subscription plan; $60 for 1 shirt, $50 each for 2 shirts, and $40 each for 3 shirts. She has great reasoning behind this too. Listen directly from her ladies:

With this price increase, we hope to be able to return to the beautiful designs we launched with five years ago. At the price of $20 – $30 per shirt, we simply can no longer afford to make the high-end blouses and sweaters you love. Costs have increased significantly since we started the business in 2011: the cost of cotton has increased, the cost of paper has increased, but mostly, the cost of labor has increased.

The kind of designs we love to make with intricate paneling, beautiful draping and layering, and complicated asymmetric patterns, require professional seamstresses with experience and skill. Simply put, these professionals are not cheap.

Beyond this, we are committed to ethical labor practices and paying a fair wage. With this price increase, we will be able to continue to provide our seamstresses with a living wage and return to the classic, high-end blouses, sweaters, cardigans, and long-sleeve tops you love.

Additionally, and even more exciting, we will now be able to offer almost every style with our Unstainable® technology. Every style that uses our signature cotton/modal knit, Crepe de Chine, and Ponte de Roma knit will be treated with our Unstainable® technology.

Ready to see the shirts I got in my Winter box, and how I styled them? Let’s take a look ladies.

ELIZABETH & CLARKE THE IRIS
ELIZABETH & CLARKE THE IRIS

THE IRIS 

Style Tip: The Iris (similar top I have in other colors here) comes in a striking purple color, and the fabric is very comfy. It hugs just the right spots, and is slightly looser in other parts of the body which makes the tee very flattering. I paired it with super comfy legging pants ( that are on sale, don’t miss out ladies!), pumps, and a large cross-body bag with on trend tassels. A couple pieces of jewelry from Rocksbox added some glam to the casual look. (Get your FREE MONTH of Rocksbox here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo) I also added this bracelet watch for a modern touch.

THE DAVENPORT 

Style Tip: Although I love all three pieces from the winter collection, I think The Davenport has a slight edge for me with its clever layered pearl design. I love that you don’t have to accessorize with a necklace, and the design is interesting, and different. I paired mine with a lace pencil skirt (see this beauty as an option), crystal earrings, and purple pumps to introduce a dash of color. I wore this exact outfit to dinner with my husband and friends.

THE KIMBER

Ok lets take a moment and check out the little kitty peeking from the small pocket on the tee ladies! Now that we’ve got that out of our system, we can talk about other great features of this piece such as its slouchy, cool fit, dropped sleeves, and soft material. Seriously though, I just adore that kitty. I am partial to critters on tops. <3

Style Tip: This tee screams effortlessly cool so the first thing that came to my mind was half tucking it which in my mind is the ultimate casual, tried without trying look haha. I added my ripped boyfriend jeans, and navy Hunters. ( this pair is such a classic for me, and I’ve been wearing mine for at least three years with pretty much no wear & tear)

I always say how much I love pink and grey together so I chose a pink shoulder/cross-body (see this gorgeous option) bag, as well as a statement necklace to pull everything together. I also wanted to show you the gorgeous snow that was falling when we were taking these photos.

    My favorite is the kimber. The second one is so different looking. You styled it so creatively that it stands out. ?

    • Theboxqueen

      The Kimber is so whimsical and cute right? I do love the second long sleeve for its bold design too. Hope your week is going lovely so far Sibel. XOXO, Elif

  • I think that last one is my favourite -t eh cat is too cute! 🙂

    I’m impressed you were out in the snow in short sleeves too – you must have been so cold! We are lucky it doesn’t snow here, even in winter.

    Hope you are having a great week 🙂

      The snow has been crazy here in the NW this year. I always look at your summer outfits and feel nostalgic for the warm weather. I am definitely a summer girl myself. 🙂 Thanks so much Mica, isn’t the kitty tee too cute? I loved it myself. Hope your new week started off nicely. XOXO, Elif

  • I can totally understand. It feels like Europe entered the ice age. I’ve never seen so much snow in my hometown before.
    I love all the looks, but mostly the pencil skirt with that elegant top 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Its super cold & icy still here in the NW US. And I’ve heard from family & friends Europe is the same way. Thanks so much Lu! Great to hear from you as always, and hope you are having a lovely week. XOXO, Elif

  • nuray

    This was a wonderful box of tops. My favorite is the first purple tee. Its a bright and happy color and a staple style. I liked your styling with the leggings.

    • Theboxqueen

      Those leggings are great. (and on sale too not to enable or anything haha 🙂 I agree on the purple tee. Its a very cheerful piece. XOXO, Elif
