I didn’t have much time to shop during my time in London, but one of the shops I did visit was ME+EM. I remember checking out one of their boutiques briefly on a previous trip, but it was during summer sales and I didn’t see anything that worked for me. Manina had recommended I visit them again and I was quite impressed with their selection of elevated basics.
I only had time to try on a couple of sweaters (both of which came home with me) but I’d love to go back and do a deeper dive into their collection next time we’re in London.
I did do some exploring online though, and thought I’d share a few of the kind of basic-not-generic pieces that are worth investing in. Above, a cropped knit boucle jacket in cream. It’s also offered in black, and here’s a longer version if you prefer.
No, they aren’t inexpensive, but rather are investment pieces that can be worn year after year. Above, a textured cotton Breton pullover in navy and cream.
Here’s a classic peacoat in dark navy.
And a subtly striped cotton and silk relaxed fit shirt.
ME+EM has lots of gorgeous, sophisticated colors in their current collection, both cool and warm. They do deliver to the US, shipping is $25, returns are free. Here’s a chart for UK to US size conversion.
This isn’t a sponsored post; I just wanted to share this brand for those of you looking to add some elevated, timeless pieces to your wardrobe. Here are a few more I thought you might like… (use arrow keys to see more styles)
