Our Shopping Spree at ESPRIT (Part 2)

After lots of mixing and matching fun at Esprit Kids, Little Edison was a little exhausted. So, he took a break while I explore the women’s collection on the first level.

There are three main product lines here – Women Collection, Women Casual and edc by Esprit. I focused on the first two collections, which I think is more suitable for my age.

In my opinion, all the collections in Women Collection are perfect for work in an office environment, with elegant details, and at affordable prices. There is also a spectacular array of blouses, tops, pants, denims and shorts for weekend casual outings in Women Casual.

The first item that caught my eye is this wrap-over effect jersey dress in green. The material is soft and it provides great comfort and maximum freedom of movement. After I tried it on, I felt that maybe green doesn’t look good on me. If I wear this to work, my colleagues will start speculating that I’m expecting my #2.

Next, I tried on a belted black dress. This piece looks simple off the shelf, but when I put it on, I love it so much for its femininely fitted cut and a leather-look belt. Perfect for work or attending business lunch. In this picture, I was wearing a size “M” so it looks slightly loose at the sides. Then, I tried on an “S” and it looks so much fitter.

The next item that I picked is the beige business trousers paired with an all-over print stretch top. I seldom buy pants from international brands because most of the time, I need to send them for alteration as they are always too long for me. However, this piece caught me by surprise. I was wearing a size 32 (UK size 6) and it fits me perfectly! No alteration is needed at all!

This top has a loose, figure-skimming cut with an elasticated gathered waistband. I like the striking cut-away shoulders and retro print design. If you like this design, you can also try out the dress. And it’s exceptionally comfortable too!

I also tried the slim fit ¾ pants in stretch cotton. It is made of dense fabric with a soft handle and stretch for maximum comfort. White is always my favourite colour as I can pair it easily with any tops.

I also tried out on the denim. In this picture, I’m wearing a low-rise, extra slim leg ¾ cotton denim. It’s robust with a soft stretch and a gentle washed-out effect. This denim is extremely comfortable as it is made of 99% cotton.

Esprit also has a fantastic collection of shoes. I like their trendy wedges so much. My personal favourite is the denim wedges with a platform of approx. 3cm (top left in the picture). It is made of dark denim with a comfortable, genuine leather insole. The open-toe flat strappy sandals (bottom in the picture) is the perfect choice for weekend outing – especially if you’re going out with the kids or going on a long shopping trip.

If I had to choose a favourite among all the collections that I’ve tried on, I’d say that the cotton denim ¾ pants is my favourite. But the beige business trousers and the retro print top looked great too. And the black belted dress. Tough call.

At the end, both of us picked three sets of outfits each. These are all the collections that we brought home, and we were extremely satisfied with our shopping spree.
