There are two things that matter the most to me when it comes to my clothing:
- Value. No matter what the price, I expect clothing that I purchase to have a reasonable cost-per-wear. So if it’s an expensive pair of shoes, I’d better be able to wear them for YEARS. If it’s a $5 flea market scarf, even if I only wear it five times, it only cost me $1 per wear.
- Fit. If I have to tug at it all day, I will not wear it, no matter how cute I think it is. Far too many times I’ve made the mistake of buying something that looks adorable but fits slightly wonky and then letting in languish in my closet for years until I finally donate it.
I had the opportunity to try pieces from Orvis this spring and I am happy to report that the value AND the fit on everything I ordered is excellent. You might know Orvis as an outdoorsy clothing kind of company but they’ve refreshed their collection and made it both functional and fashionable. I’m very impressed with what they have to offer.
I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review.
The first item I picked is the army green Florence Travel Dress from the Spring 2016 collection, which is all about camp style pieces that can be worn while you adventure in- or outdoors. It features an elasticated tie-waist, tab sleeves that can be worn cuffed, and a zipper pocket on the right side. Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?
True to the description on the Orvis website, this dress does. not. wrinkle. making it perfect for traveling, which as you know, I do a lot of! Since it’s chilly out this week, I paired it with my favorite ankle boots, but it would be equally cute with a more summery shoe.
The second item I chose was this linen-blend slub t-shirt. I’m a sucker for a neutral tee since they go with everything, and I sized up two sizes to get the oversized fit that I prefer. I’ve already worn and washed this (in cold water, hang dry) a few times and it still looks amazing. Here I’m wearing it with skinny jeans and my comfiest sandals.
Possibly my favorite item is this amazing printed sleeveless blouse. I wore this outfit when my mom and I were apartment hunting and I felt polished but comfy on a very hot day. Since it’s sleeveless, I don’t have to worry about it being too tight over my gigantic shoulders and back, and the tie waist allows me to get a tailored look. I wore it with some skinnies and a Cuban heel sandal.
As you can see, Orvis has a great mixture of layer-able basics and interesting patterns and silhouettes for all seasons. Everything in their line is practical and wearable and will incorporate into your existing wardrobe seamlessly.
