Very recently, I was contacted by Carli on behalf of the high-street brand T. M. Lewin; they are currently launching a new Autumn collection for women - characterised by new splashes of colour, and added detailing such as classic frills and bows, and very generously sent me a sample of this collection. As a 20 year old female living in Britain, I had certinly heard of T. M. Lewin as a chain of high-street shops, but I did not yet have any of their pieces in my wardrobe. After recieving the first email from Carli, I decided to do some research!
T. M. Lewin is a British brand, founded in London in the late 1800's. They offer a wide range of business wear, with prices ranging from between £65 - £85 for a women's tailored shirt. Now, do not let the price alarm you; these shirts are made from 100% cotton, and the detailing alone is worth the price tag!
This is the product I chose to review:
When choosing the shirt, the first thing to note is that I was advised to get the size smaller than I normally would, as these shirts tend to come up a bit bigger. This was definitely a wise piece of advice as the size smaller fits me like a glove!
I decided to create two looks with this piece, to show how a formal, tailored shirt can be transformed from a casual day look into a formal business look.
Look 1: Casual
|Black vest: Primark - Checkered shirt: T. M. Lewin - Denim hot pants: Topshop|
Look 2: Formal
|Checkered shirt: T. M. Lewin - Black high-waisted jeans: Republic|
This brand is versatile across all ages, with ranges for men and women, and constantly have online and in-store promotions to tempt new and regular customers!
If you like this shirt, you can find it online or in-store very soon at the launch of the women's Autumn collection, so keep your eyes peeled!
