Tried & Tested: eShakti's Graphic Floral Blouson Top

Wearing an eShakti blouse. See Instagram for more outfit information.

Do you know that ready-to-wear clothing – or “factory-made clothing, sold in finished condition [and] in standardized sizes” – is a relatively recent development? After centuries of made-to-measure clothing, ready-to-wear garments became available for men with the development of uniforms in the early nineteenth century, and for women in the first decades of the twentieth century. Ready-to-wear clothing quickly replaced bespoke clothing because it’s convenient and cost-effective, although it does have its issues – namely, with sizing and fit. 

Enter eShakti, a leading U.S. retailer that offers the best of ready-to-wear shopping – ease, affordability – while enabling users to adjust their designs to suit their unique size and style. Shoppers can select their eShakti garment of choice, enter their particular measurements, and receive a custom piece of clothing in just a few weeks. If you don’t want to take your measurements, you can also choose from their standard sizes – which range from 0-36W- and enter your height to ensure a better fit.  

 

  

I chose the latter option for my eShakti shopping experience, and was thrilled with the graphic floral surplice blouson top that I received. I often find that ready-to-wear tops are too short on my torso and arms, but my top is fits my frame perfectly because I could add my height to my eShakti size. It’s also nicely finished with neat seams and beautiful gathering at the shoulders.

High Shine


High Shine




NEWS FLASH: The holiday season is just around the corner! (Yarp!!) But what better way to shine all season long than with shimmering silver clothes and accessories? Unlike the Space Age styles of the 1960's, today's designs are fashion-forward, not far-out futuristic. From gleaming motorcycle jackets to easy-to-wear flats, you'll be a glamour girl rather than a marvelous martian (à la Santo vs. The Martian Invasion, above).


S.S.W. Asks: Will YOU wear silver styles this season?
