DownEast Basics Review

Santabarbarahalter The snow and ice is finally melting and we’re all thinking about breathing some life back into our closets.  The DownEast Basics new spring arrivals are the perfect place to start to get your wardrobe ready for the warm weather ahead.  With skirts, flutter tops, swim separates and even handbags, DownEast Basics has a full line of spring and summer apparel that can take you from work to play and back again, even on a tight budget. 

Romanticrope Everyone wants to save money wherever they can, but a discount is worth nothing if the quality of the sale item is not worth buying in the first place.  DownEast Basics understands that a good deal has to be good quality, too, and has created a whole line of clothing that is not only affordable, but also incredibly stylish and sophisticated at the same time.  I really love their full line of tops that look flattering and feminine, as well as their classic and trendy handbags that have a much lower price than department stores sell them for. 

Talltrimtrouser Because I’m always looking for a great pair of jeans I can wear during the week and into the weekend, I was thrilled to get my hands on the Tall & Trim Trouser Jeans by DownEast Basics.  Of course, the fact that both “tall” and “trim” are in the product name was initially a selling point, but what completely sold me on the Trouser Jeans was their sophisticated approach to laid-back demin.  With a nautical inspired mid rise cut and a dark wash that can go from day to night, the Trouser Jeans are both fashionable and fun at the same time.  The Trouser Jeans have a flared cut and a wide cuff that make them perfect for dress shoes as well as sandals and sneakers.  And, because I’m truly sick of high-water pants, I love that the Tall & Trim Trousers come in your choice of two inseams.

I know a lot of people get nervous about buying clothing online and don’t want to worry about having to ship items back if they are not quite right, so I always love a company that has true to size clothing and a good size chart for reference.  It’s especially nice that they include all inseam sizes and talk about the fit of the product in the item description, helping you get the best fit for your body.  If you're lucky enough to live near a DownEast Basics brick and mortar store, you can go check out their line in person, see list of locations here.   

Downeast-basics-smell-the-roses-top1-213x300 As much as I love the Tall & Trim Trouser Jeans, I really adore that the whole DownEast Basics spring line with their fun and feminine styles for every woman and even some adorable styles for little girls as well.  With completely affordable clothing that looks like anything but discount wear, DownEast Basics offers both the classic pieces every girl should have in her wardrobe as well as the fun new styles that still look elegant as well as incredibly wearable.  

To make your shopping even more fun, DownEast Basics is offering a special "Buy 3 – SAVE $15" promotion.  Buy any three mix-and-match swim pieces and save $15 on the entire order now through May 2.  Enter promo code SWIM3 at checkout.
