A few weeks ago, Newchic contacted me asking if I wanted to try out some of their clothing. I am always curious about overseas online stores and wonder how their products compare to each other. The prices are incredibly low, but are they even worth it if the product won't even survive the wash? I decided to go ahead and give them a try so at the very least I could share my thoughts and experiences. This layered look sweatshirt is the first item from Newchic I tried. For reference, this is a size 8 or a medium. It's also an almost exact dupe for this sweatshirt selling for over $55!

So far it's been put through the washer and dryer twice and is holding up really well. For the weekend, I paired it with skinny jeans and my new combat boots. Ultimate comfort!

  11. I'm often on the fence when it comes to pre-layered items. On the one hand they never require any fussing, but on the other you are very limited with how you can wear them. But I suppose for the price, it's not bad to have.

  15. Great to know it's holding up in the wash! I always get suspicious of overseas cheap companies too, but I'm happy to hear you think the quality isn't lacking here! You look great in these pics!

  17. Those are so similar - and the one you are wearing is a fraction of the cost. I always like plaid paired under a sweater.

  19. Love the built in layering of your top! Great that you are happy with the quality too, it's always a bit daunting when you order from somewhere new.

  21. You had me at combat boots. LOVE!!! Cutie patootie sweatshirt. Had to read twice to understand that it is faux layers.

  22. I don't know if my comment ever went through, so this may be a duplicate but this top is so fun, at first I didn't realize it was all one shirt. Like how you styled it with the combat boots!!
