Quince Review – Is it good quality?
As many of you know, I try really hard to do put a question box up every week (usually Thursday or Friday!) and one topic that pops up ALL the time is Quince. Have you tried Quince? Is Quince good quality? Is Quince legit?! And I get the curiosity – I’ve been curious too! So after months of wondering along with you, I finally went to their website and placed a big order so I could write a full Quince review. So let’s get into it!
What is Quince?
Quince is a direct-to-consumer retail website that carries clothing, leather goods, accessories, home decor, bed and bath, and more. It’s CRAZY how much variety they have, especially since they are committed to high quality products and sustainability… for a fraction of the cost of other brands.
It’s not often that you find a brand that is both affordable and sustainable, but Quince has somehow managed to do it. They are committed to more eco-conscious production with sustainably produced materials. They ship directly from the factory to the consumer, which reduces their carbon footprint. They are eliminating all virgin plastic in their packaging, and all of their packaging will be 100% compostable by the end of the year. And they work with factories that provides equitable wages and safe work environments for their workers.
If you’re new here, welcome! For context, I am 5’2″ and I typically wear either an XS or S in tops. I’m also wearing these jeans with each look.
Alpaca Crewneck Sweater – $49.90
One thing to know about me is that I LOVE Everlane’s alpaca crewneck. I own it in 3 colors and have been wearing them for years – so the fact that this $50 version is (dare I say it!) just as good is blowing my MIND. I sized up to a small in this one because I wanted that cozy oversized fit, and it’s perfect. It comes in 6 colors and it’s really soft and warm!
Italian Leather Quilted Crossbody Bag – $129.90
Omg THIS BAG. Alllll the heart eyes! To be totally honest, I kind of assumed that I would return it, but I figured it was worth a shot for the color and the price. But now that it’s here – SHE’S STAYIN. I cannot get over how much I love it.
First, the color is even better in person. It’s so versatile for literally any season in Chicago. Second, this is real Italian leather for $130! We’re talking soft, beautiful, handcrafted leather goodness. If you want to see more (like what fits inside), I saved some stories about it to a Quince highlight on my Instagram page, too!
100% Organic Cotton Fisherman Crew Sweater – $39.90
As I mentioned above, I don’t own any Jenni Kayne but apparently this Fisherman Sweater is very similar to theirs – except JK’s is $395 and Quince’s is only $40. This one is made from 100% organic cotton and it’s a great weight with really nice rib detailing all over. I got a size small and it isn’t very oversized, so I’d definitely size up if you want more slouch.
Cashmere Batwing Sweater – $79.90
I wasn’t sure if this batwing sweater was going to look ridiculous on me since I’m short, but I’m glad I tried it because I looooove it. It’s made with 100% Grade-A Mongolian cashmere that is SO soft, I didn’t want to take it off. The S/M size is definitely big on me but I think it’s really cute when you do a little half tuck! The green is really pretty in real life, and it comes in 6 other colors. I will be living in this until it warms up again, especially on work from home days!
100% Organic Cotton Boyfriend Crew – $39.90
This cotton sweater is oversized but also pretty petite friendly since it’s a little cropped in the front and longer in the back. It also has pretty ribbed detailing on the cuffs and hem that I like a lot. I got an XS and it’s still slouchy on me. It comes in 11 colors, so I’m wondering if I’d prefer it in a different color… I’ll keep you updated if I exchange it!
Washable Silk Blouse – $69.90
I get tons of questions about workwear and this blouse is going to be my new top recommendation. First of all, it’s made with WASHABLE SILK. Hello practicality! Second, it comes in 9 different colors, so you could technically get one for every day of the week. Wear them with a skirt or trousers to the office and with leggings on your Zooms from home 😉
I got a small and it’s long on me but that’s to be expected because I’m short. This is one that is going back for me because I just can’t see myself wearing it a ton since I don’t have a traditional job – but I’m eyeing it in black for date nights!
Cashmere Crewneck Sweater – $50
The fact that this sweater is only $50 is BANANAS. The style isn’t anything groundbreaking, but it is timeless. Crew neck, slim fit, lightweight but cozy… it will never go out of style. It’s also made from 100% Grade-A Mongolian cashmere so it’s incredibly soft and warm. I recommend sizing up if you want a little bit of a slouch to it – I have on a size small here. It also comes in 13 colors!
Chiffon Smocked Blouse – $59.90
This blouse is so cute and fun! The chiffon fabric is made from 100% recycled polyester and it feels a lot more expensive than $60. That being said, I told myself I wouldn’t keep everything from this order, so this one is another one that is going back. I think it could be a winner if you’ve been on the hunt for an affordable top you can dress up or down though! I’m wearing a small here.
