Actress Jaime King stepped out in Los Angeles looking fashion-forward sporting a structured ruffled blouse, skinny jeans, and black flats. She paired the casual jeans with a shirt that upon first glance looks seriously high-fashion but is actually from the fast-fashion website SheIn. Meaning: We can afford it.
SheIn sells really affordable clothing — think adorable blouses for under $20 (and sometimes even under $10) — and even stylish celebs like King are taking advantage of the incredible deals.
SheIn’s prices are competitive with those of a brand like Forever 21, but its styles seem to target a more mature audience.
Although King’s blouse is no longer available on the site, a similar off-the-shoulder blouse on SheIn sells for only $16. The shirt has 96 reviews and an almost perfect score of 4.9, with many uploading pics of themselves wearing the blouse onto the site’s “Style Gallery.”
“A little small on the waist but it is a so sweet blouse; I like the shape, and the fabric does not look cheap,” wrote one reviewer who gave the top a five-star rating.
Another wrote: “Adorable top, fits true to size, I purchased small. Fit perfectly. Love the fun sleeves and off-shoulder vibe. Received so many compliments. Highly recommend. Amazing quality and a great price. Looks so much more expensive than it was!!”
Of course there were naysayers too. A customer who gave the blouse a one-star rating wrote, “Too small … returning.” To that, SheIn’s customer service department commented: “We deeply apologize if our items did not live up to your expectation. Please kindly note that the sizes of our items correspond to the size description on our site, which are not standard U.S. or U.K. sizes, thus we have measurements on each product page for your reference. We’re sorry for the hassle, and we’re doing everything we can to improve.”
The brand is also sold on Amazon with similar generally positive reviews, aside from the pervasive SheIn sizing issue.
“Typically wear a size 4 and ordered a medium and it was way too small. Very cute skirt other than being too small,” an Amazon commenter wrote about a popular SheIn denim skirt.
“I am normally a medium, so I bought a large. Still way too small =*( For sure, I would give this 5 stars if it fit me. Apparently, they don’t have XL so I can’t even exchange it,” wrote another.
With prices so low though, perhaps it’s worth ordering SheIn items we love in multiple sizes and returning the ones that don’t fit. Hey, if SheIn is good enough for Jaime King, it’s good enough for us.
