I've returned today with yet another SheIn fashion review, including a sequined champagne v-neck romper, lace-embroidered mesh crop top, and maroon silky slip dress, three of their trendy new arrivals. Details ahead!

The first item I picked out was a sequined champagne v-neck romper, sold in sizes XS-L.

This long sleeve romper features an allover sequin design, elastic waistband, plunging deep v-neckline, sheer mesh sleeves, and flowy shorts with a scalloped hem. It comes with a yellow-green cord belt and has two loops along the waist to keep the belt in place. Personally, I'm not a fan of the belt, but the romper looks stunning on its own, or paired with a different belt!

I got this romper in size XS, which fits true to SheIn's measurements. The waistband is stretchy and can fit larger sizes, but since there's no zipper and you have to pull it on over your shoulders, I'd recommend sizing up for an easier fit.

Quality-wise, it's a fairly sturdy piece, but there are a few loose threads. The bodice is lined and comfortable, but since the sleeves are unlined and sheer, they're a bit scratchy.

The color and design of this romper is 100% accurate to SheIn's modeled photos, and the sequins are super glittery and gorgeous in person. This style is perfect for parties and special occasions, combining the sexy plunging neckline cut with feminine scalloped edges, eye-catching sequins, and an elegant champagne-beige tint. Although I personally don't think it suits me well, it's undoubtedly a gorgeous piece for anyone who likes the style!

The second piece I chose was a lace-embroidered mesh crop top, offered in sizes S-XL.

This crop top features long, loose-fitting sleeves, a ribbon tie at the waist, and black lace accents. Constructed from a semi-sheer peachy-nude mesh, it's lightweight and breathable, perfect for spring, summer, and even autumn!

Style-wise, this is a dupe of the For Love and Lemons Penelope crop top, a piece that retails for around $180 compared to SheIn's original price of $31. While it features a very similar style, there are obviously differences in the details and material, so it's not a super accurate dupe of the FLL style, but it's nonetheless a gorgeous piece.

This top works perfectly layered over a simple black bralette, and can be worn with the ribbon tied or left untied as a cardigan-type piece. Aside from a few loose threads, there are no flaws with this, and the uniqueness of the design is certainly worth the price.

Here, I paired this mesh crop top with a black lace bralette, faux leather-paneled pants, and a simple black velvet choker for an autumn-ready style with boho influences. It's also a great piece to use as a coverup for the beach, or a lovely top to wear with a flowy skirt for a springtime ensemble.

The last item I'll be reviewing from this time's SheIn order is a maroon silky slip dress, originally sold in sizes S-L.

This smooth, silky slip dress comes in a deep wine red/maroon tint (my pictures make it seem brighter, but the actual color is accurate to SheIn's photos) with an alluring shine. Constructed from a lightweight, comfortable satin polyester, this dress features adjustable straps that cross at the back, a hidden back zipper, and a matching neck tie that can also be worn as a belt.

Of the three items I got, this was the piece I was looking forward to the most, and it doesn't disappoint! The fabric is super silky and soft to the touch, and the dress is so comfortable and easy to wear.

Size-wise, the dress fits as described, though I wish SheIn made this in an XS, since the S is a bit too loose and long for my liking. It's a bit wrinkly from delivery as you can see in my photos, but the dress itself is so gorgeous and the thickness of the fabric is perfectly light without being sheer or overly delicate.

The fit ended up being too big for me, which is a shame because everything else about this dress is stunning. I especially love the matching neck tie, which also works great as a belt to add some shape to the otherwise simple silhouette. Silky slip dresses have recently come back in style, and this affordable piece from SheIn is perfect for anyone in love with the trend.

Overall

In terms of quality, style, and accuracy, all three items from SheIn met my expectations, and I've noticed that they've implemented a ton of improvements to their site recently, including a revamped design and more consistent product modeling. Their new styles keep getting better, and I can't wait to see what else they have in store!
