The Brand: Iris & Ink

Jan 28, 2020

Apologies for the late post.  I pushed a WordPress update last night, and it shook up some things on the backend.  But it should be all fixed now.

I decided to add a new feature to the morning post, a post talking about the brands of clothing, shoes, and accessories that I think knock it out of the park.  These are the brands that I search through when I need to fill a hole in my wardrobe or when I’m looking for something to wear to a specific event.  And the first brand up is the The Outnet’s in-house line, Iris & Ink.

Iris & Ink bridges the gap for those of us who want work appropriate clothing that also has modern styling and fashion-forward details.  The prices are typically mid-tier, with most items costing under-$175.  The Outnet also offers free shipping and free returns, and if this is your first time shopping the site, you can take 15% off with code FIRST15.

The Outnet’s only failing is the sizing.  Most items run only to a UK14, which is a US 12.  I’ve spoken to the brand’s PR team in the past about their willingness to expand the size range, and I hope they make strides to be more inclusive in the future.

Here are some of my favorite pieces that they currently have on offer.

Magenta Stella Sheath ($82)

Cream Aspen Wrap Blouse ($110)

Black Madison Belted Crepe Blazer ($185)

Toka 18k Gold Hammered Pendant Necklace ($70)

Ivory Meadow Print Blouse ($120)

Ocotillo Belted Wrap Dress ($170)

    Hey, just for reference – a UK size 14 equates to a US 10. I love this brand but it’s too tricky for me re: sizing!

    I love the style of Iris & Ink but I’ve been disappoitned with the quality and the fabric in the past. While a lot of their items are fantastic (some great wool & silk pieces) I generally can find a natural fiber option for the same price as their polyester pieces. Polyester + east coast summer humidity has not been kind to me in the past. But I agree, Iris & Ink has some really fantastic pieces!!

    the styles look great and i def would be interested in them… but you are right the size range is very disappointing. ending at a US 10 does not reflect modern consumers in any way. i hope they listen to the feedback and reconsider pronto.

    I bought a structured bag, big enough for a laptop from Iris & Ink a couple of years ago that became my daily work bag. It is a pink/grey/mouse colour and is showing no signs of wear at all. Fabulous style and quality.
