My honest Quince review with sizing insights for every piece I’ve ordered!
Obsessed with this alpaca sweater!
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 popped up ALL the time is Quince. Have you tried Quince? Is Quince good quality? Is Quince legit?! And I get the curiosity – I was 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.
Fast forward a few months, and I obviously had to place another order and update this post for spring! So let’s get to it!
What is Quince?
This open knit pullover is marketed as a cover up but it’s actually perfect for any mild weather. I have size small and it has a really slouchy and relaxed fit.
I would absolutely wear it over a swimsuit but I also really love it with this outfit!
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.
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!
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!
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.
100% European Linen Shorts – $29.90
These are hands down the best linen shorts I’ve ever owned – and they’re only $30?!?! INSANE! They are super comfortable, I love the drawstring waist and the pockets are perfectly placed.
They’re also made with linen from 100% European flax, which is more sustainable and less resource-intensive to grow. I sized up to a medium to ensure that they were extra comfy. I truly have nothing but amazing things to say about these shorts. 10/10 recommend!
Italian Wrap One Piece Swimsuit – $49.90
This swimsuit might look a little familiar… I had been eyeing this $95 beauty for a while but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend that much. So when I saw that this one was half the price, I added it to my cart and I am very impressed with it!
I sized up to a size 6 which I’m really glad I did because it’s pretty snug! The compressive fabric is really nice though, and I love that it has sewn-in soft cups that offer support without moving around. The booty is also pretty full coverage, and you can adjust the side tie to your liking.
Cropped Square Neck Sweater Tank – $34.90
Okay I feel like I’ve been searching for this knit tank my whole life! It has just the right about of structure and stretch, and the texture makes it a little more interesting. It’s also the PERFECT length with high waisted jeans. It also comes in 3 colors and I got a size small.
Tencel Rib Knit Maxi Slip Dress – $49.90
I don’t wear bodycon dresses very often but this dress hugs allllll the curves, baby! I’ve never tried the Skims long slip dress, but I’ve heard that this is a good dupe for it. I love that the fabric is super soft and breathable, and even though it’s sexy, you can actually style it a lot of different ways! This blog post has the links to 5 outfit ideas too. II got a size small and it’s a little long on my 5’2″ self but it’s perfect with heels and I can add a belt and shimmy it up to wear with flat shoes.
Linen shirts are a spring/summer STAPLE and Quince has made a really good one. Their linen is made from 100% European flax, which is more sustainable and less resource-intensive to grow. I got a size small and it’s great as a shirt, but I particularly love it styles as a light top layer. Wear it open or tied at the waist!
Brushed Short Sleeve Lounge Tee – $29.90
Holy moly this tee is SO SOFT. I literally ran over to Adam as soon as I opened it to make him feel it too 😂 The fabric plus the relaxed fit and dolman sleeve definitely make this a lounge-y tee, but it still looks nice enough to style different ways. I got an XS and it’s still a little oversized on me.
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!
Tencel Jersey Fit & Flare Mini Dress – $39.90
I’m going to be totally honest – this dress is going back. It’s really soft and nicely made, but I am too short for it and I don’t think it’s worth getting shortened. That being said, if you are taller than 5’2″, I think it’s definitely worth a try! It’s suuuper comfortable and comes in 3 different colors. I got a size small.
This dress is also going back, which I’m sad about because it’s so pretty! The fit just isn’t right on me. It’s a little too long and it doesn’t fit me right, especially around the hips. I got a size small and an XS would be too tight but I think a medium would be too big. Ultimately I think this would be better on someone taller with less curves – so if that’s you, please get it and enjoy being effortlessly chic in it!
