The BEST Shein Buys for Spring/Summer.

    For a good few years now, I've loved shopping at Shein! I feel like a lot of bloggers also shop there and promote their items, so I'm guessing you might have heard of this retailer. 😊I like to think of Shein as kind of an online only version of Forever 21. They always have the trendiest clothing, accessories, shoes and swimwear, and at really low prices. Similar to F21- the quality isn't always the greatest on everything, but the prices are low and there are gems to be found!

     I've had the privilege to work with Shein in their blogger review program for a couple years, which allows me to try lots of new styles. There are always a few misses... but also lots of hits! Today I'm featuring some of my favorite Shein outfit pieces and swimwear for the warmer months! If you want to purchase anything from today's post, use my code 1rainbowf15 to save an extra 15%. 

      1. Tassel Tie Neck Eyelet Dress - How darling is this eyelet dress? The light blue color is beautiful, and perfect for spring and summer. I was also impressed by how lined this dress in (zero chance that it's see-through!). I personally find it modest enough to wear to work, since my job has a casual dress code. It looks great with flat sandals and a jean jacket, or dressed up with wedges and statement earrings!

     2. Button Up Pocket Front Belted Striped Dress - To be quite honest, I surprised myself by how much I liked this dress. I wasn't quite sure how it would look on me from the pictures of it on the Shein website- but I ended up really liking it. It's definitely a looser fit in the chest area, which is different than a lot of other dresses that I have, but it works. I think it's a very classic summer piece, and I can't wait to wear it again this year!

     3. Flower Print Tie Front Jumpsuit - Probably my favorite thing from Shein ever! This jumpsuit is absolute perfection. It's comfortable to wear, fits perfectly, and I love the bold orange hue and the pretty floral print! If you've never bought anything from Shein before and are doubtful, let this be the thing that changes your mind. Side note for anyone in Charlottesville or a UVA fan- it's the perfect orange to wear for school or sports spirit!

     4. Colorblock Low Back Swimsuit - I've tried a lot of Shein swimsuits over the past few years- some hits and some misses. This one piece was a definite hit! I'm wearing my usual size M, and it fit perfectly. The quality is definitely better than other Shein suits I've tried, and it's very flattering on. I feel that some one pieces in this specific style (in general, not just from Shein) can sometimes be unflattering in the chest area- this one is not! It has padded cups built in and looked great on.

     5. V-Cut Front Bodysuit - Definitely a bit of an edgier piece, but it's so versatile to wear! This is also one of the best bargains I've ever gotten from Shein, so why not try it? I've styled this bodysuit so far with midi-skirts and skinny jeans, and I'm looking forward to pairing it with shorts and denim skirts this summer.

     6. Keyhole Front Balloon Sleeve Skater Dress - I think this is my second favorite Shein outfit of all time, second only to the jumpsuit listed above. Definitely my favorite dress! The bird print and bright blue color make this dress so fun, and it has the most flattering fit! I started wearing it this winter with over-the-knee boots, but it is equally cute for spring and summer. I would dress it down with flat sandals, or dress it up with an updo for my hair and a pair of nude pumps!

     7. Ruffle Waist Self Belt Grid Shorts - Some of my favorite shorts of last summer! These are an incredible Shein bargain. And they're so stylish and comfortable! They look great paired with black or white tops for a neutral look (like I'm wearing below), or with a solid colored shirt in a bright color.

     One big tip I have for shopping on Shein is to always read the reviews of the item! They can usually give a good idea if something is awesome and a great bargain, or if it's really cheaply made / doesn't fit well and would be a good thing to pass on. There are lots of amazing things to be found at Shein, you just have to dig a bit.

     Do you shop at Shein or have any favorite items? Let me know in the comments! One thing I'd love to hear is if you've tried their shoes- that's one thing I've never ordered before!

     God Bless,
