Dresslink Fashion Review: Blouse, Baseball Coat, Halter Top, + Sheer Jacket

Hey guys! Today I'm reviewing my latest order from Dresslink, including an off-shoulder ribbon-tied blouselongline baseball coatprinted halter crop top, and sheer bomber jacket. Details ahead!

Today I'll be reviewing my latest Dresslink order, featuring four super-affordable black-and-white items: an off-shoulder blouse, longline baseball jacket, halter crop top, and sheer bomber jacket.

In my latest order, I got four different items from Dresslink. Since their prices are so affordable, all four items totaled up to under $19 without shipping, which is just about $5 per item!

I picked the cheapest delivery option, which means that the package doesn't come with a tracking number. It arrived in time and as expected.

The first item that I got from Dresslink was a off-shoulder ribbon-tied blouse. This blouse, sold in size M, originally costed $4.13 but now only costs $3.76!

This blouse is made of a white chiffon fabric, with a black ribbon at the neckline. There are two layered panels at the top, which can be used to wear the blouse as a sort of off-shoulder/cold-shoulder style.

Quality-wise, this blouse looks pretty different from what I'd expected. The material is a bit sheer and wrinkles easily, so it's definitely not the best quality. The ribbon isn't as long or nice-looking as in the product photos, and it looks rather cheap, to be honest. The ends of the ribbon are also frayed, though that's an easy fix.

Although this top looks rather cheaply-made, it looks cute if you style it well. I've found two ways to wear this: as a sleeveless top (as pictured above), or as an off-shoulder top (as pictured in Dresslink's product photos). Both ways look pretty nice, so it's a fairly versatile item.

Overall, I'm a bit disappointed with how the quality of this cold shoulder top turned out, even though it's not too bad for a top that's barely $4. The simple, sweet, monochromatic style is cute and easy to pair, so there's definitely still room for it in my wardrobe, but I do wish that it was made better.

Next up is the longline baseball coat from Dresslink. This jacket comes in red and black, one-size-only, for $5.52.

This jacket is pretty well made, and the material is very comfortable. It's a bit thin, and the white sleeves are a tiny bit see-through, but it works nicely as a light jacket/cardigan-type piece.

Style-wise, it's a very simple jacket, and you can easily slip it on over practically anything—a T-shirt and jeans outfit, a floral dress, a crop top and skirt set, you name it. It's a good piece to have in the spring or early autumn.

This longline baseball jacket definitely surpassed my expectations for a $5 item, and despite the material being a bit thin, it's totally wearable, looks exactly as pictured on Dresslink's site, and is super comfortable and easy to put on.

The third item that I got was a printed halter crop top, costing just $2.74! This top is offered in sizes S-XL, with a cute printed phrase on the front.

First off, this top looks 100% accurate to the product photos. It has an O-shaped neckline, with strings to tie at the back. The top is made of a slightly shiny, smooth polyester, which gives it a lot of stretch.

My main concern with this top is that it's too loose, especially in the back. Because of the thin, super-stretchy material, the back part doesn't fit tightly and has a habit of slipping down. I'd much rather prefer if it was made of a thicker cotton fabric, though the polyester is quite comfortable.

Here, I'm wearing this cropped halter top with a white pleated tennis skirt for a simple monochromatic look. As you can probably tell, it bunches up weirdly at the back since it's too big, but otherwise I love how it looks.

I really wish this crop top fit better, because it looks super cute and it matches well with nearly anything. For $3 I'm very happy with it, even though it's not perfect.

The last piece of clothing that I got was a sheer bomber jacket. This jacket, costing $3.90, comes in black, white, and mint green, one size only.

This jacket is currently sold out in black and white, which is a shame because, after getting the actual product in white, I want to get it in black too.

It's lightweight, with a striped trip on the hem, neckline, and sleeves, while the rest of the jacket is made of a sheer, smooth material. There's a zipper on the front with a cute pearl accent, and it looks just as expected!

I love how you can practically wear this jacket over any outfit, yet it still adds a unique touch. The material is a bit scratchy, so it's not the most comfortable piece to wear. There were a few loose threads at the sleeves, but otherwise the quality is good.

All in all, this sheer bomber jacket from Dresslink is well worth the price (less than $4!) and

Overall

As with my experiences with Dresslink, this order was well worth the price. Though the quality of their items isn't super amazing, it's more than I'd expect from such inexpensive clothing, and there are definitely some hidden gems to be discovered!
