I popped along to the Me + Em shop in Elizabeth street this week to have a look at their gorgeous collection in the flesh. I have been shopping from the catalogue for a few years now, and have been so impressed with the tailoring and quality of the clothes that I have bought, but it’s always nice to be able to feel the fabrics and have a good try on session. Me + Em is one of those brands that I literally want everything I see! For me the brand epitomises ‘effortless, elegant chic’ and with ‘buy less, choose well’ in mind, it would be an obvious choice for buying key, timeless pieces that would form the foundations of any capsule wardrobe.
I asked the lovely ladies in the shop to take a couple of snaps of me wearing a couple of my favourite outfits. You’ll have to pretend the black socks are really stylish boots!
I’ve done a little edit of the items that really stood out for me.
- Perfect Ribbed Polo – £99 – (Buy here)
This is made from the softest 100% merino wool. It is heaven to wear and comes in a variety of muted colours. Perfect for layering in the winter and a really flattering fit.
2. Lux Button Hem Slim Crop Trousers – (Buy here)
The tailoring of the trousers at Me + Em is amazing. They skim in all the right places and I really loved the button detail on the hem of these trousers. As you can see from this photo, they are not cropped on me! I think they look ok this length, but I might have them professionally shortened. Their black trousers with white stripes down the sides are also extremely flattering and perfect for achieving that ‘sports luxe’ look.
3. Slouchy Stripe Turtleneck – £149 (Buy here)
I have this jumper and wore it this weekend. It’s made from Merino Cashmere and is incredibly soft and comfy and perfect to wear with skinnies or leather leggings as it covers ‘that’ area beautifully but the slits up the side allow it to remain shapely and flattering to the figure. It’s the perfect weekend jumper. Cosy and comfy yet stylish.
4. Military Forever Coat – £299 (buy here)
Photos don’t do coats of this quality justice. You have to feel them and try them on and I did just that. This is definitely an investment piece that would bring you a LOT of wear.
5. High Rise Full Leather Leggings – £599 (buy here)
If you are looking to invest in a high quality pair of leather leggings, then I would recommend these. They are incredible in the flesh. Buttery soft leather and a superb shape. Wouldn’t it be nice if they came with that bottom too!
6. Double Rib Swing Jumper – £165 (buy here)
I love the shape of this jumper. Extremely flattering and perfect for the indulgent festive season when you want to hide the tum! I would pair with skinny jeans or leggings to balance the volume up top. All of the Me + Em knitwear is extremely high quality and this one is the softest 100% merino which feels amazing against the skin.
7. Tailored V Neck Shift Dress – £129 (buy here)
This little shift dress is a beautiful shape and perfect for wearing over fitted knitwear in the winter. If you work in an office, this would be a really great buy. And the best feature for me, is that it has pockets!
Are you a fan of Me + Em? Do you have any items from their collection that you live in? As always I love to hear from you.
