SheIn Fashion Review:
Satin Romper + Faux Suede Coat

Up today: another SheIn fashion review, featuring a pink satin tie-waist romper and light lavender faux suede coat. Light colors aren't typically my go-to, but these pieces stood out to me while I was browsing SheIn's site, so I decided to give them a go. Full details ahead!

The first piece I'll be reviewing today is a light peach-pink satin romper, offered in sizes XS-L.

This long sleeve romper features a super low plunging neckline, flared bell sleeves, and a belt that you can tie around your waist. It's made of a silky satin fabric that's lightweight and unlined, though the bottom has an extra layer of shorts underneath for coverage.

I picked this out in size XS, which fits as described on SheIn's site. It's a tiny bit bigger than regular sizes so it fits in between XS-S, but it does run a bit small in the shoulders. If you're undecided on which size to get, size up, since the belt can be tied to make it fit tighter in the waist.

The look and cut of this piece imitates the Margaret romper by Nasty Gal, which retails for $88, over four times the price of this SheIn dupe. Considering the price, I've got no complaints about this; it's a bit wrinkled from delivery, but otherwise I'm in love!

The fabric is silky-smooth with just the right amount of sheen, the peachy blush-pink hue is flirty yet understated, and the short-and-sweet silhouette makes it a very flattering piece. I found it too revealing to be worn on it's own though, so I layered a bralette underneath. Overall this romper is a very stylish pick for day or night, and I'd absolutely recommend it!

The second piece I got was a faux suede, faux shearling coat, also offered in sizes XS-L.

I was debating between sizes for this one, but ended up going with the S in hopes of a more oversized fit, which worked! This warm and cozy jacket is made of a light, pastel-toned lilac, closer to purple than to pink as described on SheIn's site, but accurate to their photos.

The inside of this coat is lined with a fluffy faux shearling for comfort and warmth, making it a great piece for the colder months, while the pastels are perfect for adding a touch of brightness to your winter weather wardrobe. This jacket also features an asymmetric front zipper and buckles along the sleeves and at the neckline, adding edgy accents to the sweet and soft piece.

I love the feel of the faux suede, which I think was an amazing fabric choice, but unfortunately I can't say the same for the furry inner lining. The faux shearling fabric sheds like crazy, and it leaves especially-noticeable furs on dark-colored clothing. It's really a shame, because otherwise this coat is everything I wanted it to be.

Overall

As much as I love the look of these two pieces, I'd definitely say that there's some room for improvement. Honestly, if the faux suede jacket didn't have the issue with the shedding faux shearling lining, I'd be really happy with this mini-haul from SheIn, but considering the price point for the coat, the quality fell short of expectations.
