Allegra-K is an online clothing retailer that carries many unique, trendy styles, from casual graphic tops to business-ready blouses and everything in between. They have a curated collection of cute, sexy, bold, minimalist, simple, and eccentric styles all in one site, and to top it off, everything is affordably- and reasonably-priced as well!

They don't have a ton of pictures on their site, so it was hard to tell what the items I chose would end up looking like. I picked out two jackets and a skirt, and everything came in perfect condition, with each item in its own plastic bag and adorned with Allegra-K tags.

Now, onto the review of the individual items!

The first piece I got was a silky floral bomber jacket, sold in purple and blue, one size only.

Since there was only one picture of the jacket on the site, it was a bit hard for me to figure out exactly how it'd look, but thankfully it's even more gorgeous than I'd expected!

This cute, feminine jacket is constructed from a super soft, silky, lightweight fabric, with ribbed details at the sleeve cuffs, neckline, and hem. It has an exposed golden zipper at the front, as well as a slightly loose fit, combining the cool vibes of a bomber jacket with the feminine accents of the vibrant floral print and satin-y texture.

The jacket is unlined, but the quality's great for the price! It's a very light jacket, perfect for spring or early autumn, and the design also features two pockets at the front.

I was initially concerned that the ultra-colorful floral print would make this a tough jacket to style, but it looks great with all sorts of solid-colored pieces! It's the perfect accent piece to a simple monochromatic outfit, as shown here with a heart-cutout black velvet crop top and ripped black high-waisted skinny jeans.

Bomber jackets and satin jackets have been super popular lately, and this floral jacket from Allegra-K provides a wonderfully feminine twist on the trend! It's definitely a great style to have, and I'm super happy with it!

Next up is a buttoned faux suede a-line skirt, sold in sizes XS-XL.

This tan-colored skirt is made of a soft, suede-like fabric, and the thickness is great for year-round style. Along the front is a row of six golden buttons, a bit different from the seven-button design in the store photos but gorgeous nonetheless.

The look and feel of this skirt is amazing considering the low price, and it fits true to size. I got the XS, which measures about 24-25" at the waist, and the material has a slight bit of stretch for a comfortable fit.

As with the floral bomber jacket, I found that I like the actual product even more than the one pictured in the site photos! The fit is slimming and flattering, with a slightly flared a-line silhouette, and the length is perfect.

Buttoned skirts are another one of the popular SS16 fashion trends, but I'm always scared to order them because most of the ones I've tried just don't fit me nicely. Thankfully, I can say without a doubt that this faux suede skirt from Allegra-K fits amazingly, and the style is so cute and versatile! 

Here, I styled this skirt with a mock neck lace-paneled crop top from Japanese brand Snidel, along with off-white over-the-knee socks and white booties for a sweet feminine look. Pair it with a graphic crop top and low-top sneakers for a casual-cute look, with a blouse and tights for an autumn-ready ensemble, or with an off-the-shoulder top and strappy sandals for summer—there are an endless amount of styling options with this piece, and I'm in love with it!

Finally, the last piece that I got from Allegra-K was a semi-sheer floral lace blazer, sold in sizes XS-XL.

This lightweight long sleeve blazer is made from a black-and-white floral lace fabric, with two front pockets, a button accent, and a fold-over collar. It's semi-sheer, breathable, and lightweight, great for spring and autumn.

As with the other two items, the quality surpasses my expectations for the price, and there are no flaws that I've noticed. The lace fabric is super comfortable and soft, and it doesn't snag particularly easily.

The uniqueness of the style really attracted me to this blazer; it's a twist on the modern, professional design of a regular blazer, with feminine lace details and a flirty semi-sheer construction. I thought it might be difficult to style, but it looks great with both cute, trendy outfits and sleeker, more elegant outfits. It looks great as styled on the model with a simple tank top and jeans, but also works wonderfully as a statement piece on a monochromatic crop-top-and-skirt ensemble, which is how I paired it.

Overall

I'm very, very happy with the three items that I received from Allegra-K; the floral bomber jacket, faux suede skirt, and semi-sheer lace blazer were all ten times more gorgeous in person, and the quality of their items is great! I think their site could use some revamping and I'd love if they included more pictures of each item, because their styles are so lovely and rare, and I'm in love with the pieces I got! Definitely check out Allegra-K for affordable fashion in a variety of styles!
