SheIn Fashion Review: Printed Sweater, Houndstooth Skirt, + Tweed Coat

Procrastinating studying for my exam tomorrow, so here's a new SheIn fashion review! I tried to go for a black-and-white, monochrome look this time, so the three items that I'll be reviewing include a mock-neck dip hem printed sweater, a houndstooth print gridded asymmetric skirt, and a gridded longline tweed coat. Details ahead!

Just a heads up: I changed my usual formatting for this review. Since I picked the three items with the intention of styling them together, you can find the modeled pictures of all three at the end of the post, rather than in their individual sections!

The first item that I got was a mock-neck dip hem printed "Destiny" sweater. This sweater, offered in one size, is currently on sale for $18.54.

This top is made of a thin, stretchy, and lightweight knit. It features long sleeves, a ribbed mock-neck design, an asymmetric high-low hem, and a printed graphic that reads "Destiny>".

I chose this top thinking that the box at the front would be black, but it's actually more of a dark brown in person. The rest of it is a sort of off-white with a tint of beige, which goes well with the dark brown print.

The fabric is super stretchy and comfortable for the most part, though the portion with the printed graphic is rather stiff, and the white part is a tiny bit see-through. It has a boxy, slightly oversized fit, giving it that casual, chic vibe. I also love the subtle high-low accent; the back is just about 2-3 inches longer than the front, and this simple detail makes it different from a lot of similarly-styled sweaters and sweatshirts.

I would've preferred if the sleeves were a bit longer (I like really long sleeves), but otherwise this sweater fits wonderfully! It's super easy to pull on and style, and it goes well with all sorts of jeans, pants, and even skirts!

The second item that I got was a houndstooth print gridded asymmetric skirt, currently sold for $15.79 in sizes S-M.

This skirt features an allover gridded houndstooth print, hidden white side zipper, asymmetric front panel, and button accent, all on a hip-hugging silhouette. The skirt is fully lined on the inside with a smooth white fabric, and the outer material is a soft, thick woolen polyester.

I got this skirt in size S and it's pretty true to size. The zipper makes it easy to wear, but the waistband doesn't have much stretch to it, so be sure to pick the right size!

For just about $15, this skirt is really nicely made. The only flaw that I can find is a small pull at the front center (see 2nd photo; it's the little black point in the center that looks darker than the rest), but it's honestly barely noticeable when worn.

I don't usually get skirts like this, and I was pleasantly surprised with this one from SheIn! It's great for autumn and winter, whether you wear it alone, pair it with over-the-knee socks (or boots), or add black tights or leggings underneath. The houndstooth print gives it a classy, sophisticated, business-y vibe, while the unique asymmetric design and cute fit give it a stylish edge.

The third and final item that I'll be reviewing today is a gridded longline tweed coat. This coat, sold for $29.99 at the moment, was originally offered in sizes XS-L.

This coat is well made and pretty high quality. Like the skirt, it's fully lined on the inside, and the material is pretty thick. It features two full pockets in the front, a soft tweed texture, and a few small silver hooks at the front, so you can wear it open or closed. Also, you can't really see this from the photos, but there are some thin, sparkling silver threads woven in as well, which give it a subtle touch of glitteriness that I actually really like!

I got this coat in a size XS and it fits nicely for the most part, though its a bit small in the shoulders. The length is exactly as described, and the longline fit makes it a great style option to pair with skirts and tights, as well as regular pants.

And, finally, here are some photos of all three items, modeled and styled together!

Overall

I'm seriously in love with all three items that I got this time from SheIn! Honestly, I didn't expect the quality to be so good, and I have to say that SheIn really impressed me this time. My favorite item would probably be the sweater, since it's the easiest to style and the comfiest, too, but all three really surprised me!

  1. I love the outfit (but w/o the jacket tho :P) I think the sweater and the skirt are good enough together. Planning to do some shopping on SheIn since (i think) they're having freeshipping with no minimum purchase. I can take this to consideration. Thanks for your review
