Monroe And Main Fashion Review & Giveaway #MMBloggerSpotlight

This Monroe and Main review and giveaway is part of a Fashionista Events opportunity. Clothing/accessories were provided by Monroe and Main as noted below.

I first heard about Monroe And Main when they sponsored the Grand Prize for the Spring Fashionista Event earlier this year. The Fashionista Event is held twice a year (Spring and Fall) and is the largest online-only fashion event with over 100 blogs participating and featuring various fashion brands. And now I’ve been given an opportunity to choose some items from their website and share my thoughts.


Monroe And Main Placket Tunic

This is probably my favorite item on their website. I chose one in Sapphire but it’s also available in Navy and Wine. It’s a v-necked long sleeve tunic that fits loosely on my body. In the photos below though, the fabric looks like it’s hugging my tummy but that’s because it was quite windy outside when we were taking pictures.

It’s quite easy to style this top! You can pair it with jeans and loosely tuck the ends in for a smart casual kind of look. You can also let it loose and pair it with tights. And though you may also opt to wear a belt with this, I haven’t been much of a belt person since the time I gave birth — which is when I started having a muffin top. 🙁

Monroe And Main Cowl Neck Sweater

I chose the Cowl Neck Sweater in Ruby but it also comes in Deep Emerald and Espresso. Can I just say that I looove the shape of this top?! It has a combination of 3 of my favorite features —  dolman sleeves, cowl neck, and it sits below my hips. I always prefer tunic tops because I need to accentuate the length of my upper body. This, I believe, somehow makes me look slimmer than I really am.

For this top, I’d prefer just wearing jeans or, for a more formal look, slacks. I wouldn’t wear tights with this because everything would just look too tight on me from the middle downwards.

For a laid back effect, one can just wear flats on both tops. But if I need to dress it up, I’d go for stilettos and some big long necklaces.

  1. I really like the Mock 2-Piece Knit Top in Black/Gray. It really looks comfy and I like the addition of spandex with the fabric. Perfect for those chilly fall days!

  2. I like the Blue Ombré Sweater it looks comfy and like it would keep you warm on chilly fall days it also looks like you could wear it a lot of different ways

  3. i love a few of these items-the masala dress, the fan colorblock dress and the 4 way stretch bengaline relaxed skinny pants. they are all fashionable, but not too much for a 40 something mom of 4. thanks for such a nice giveaway!

  4. I love the Feather Top because it’s light enough for the warm South Carolina fall weather and I also love the wide angled sleeves and asymetrical hem!

  5. I really like the Sequin Lounge Set, it is very pretty and is something that would be cute to wear around or to bring to the gym!

  6. I really like the Jennifer Knit Top. I don’t own anything like this, it looks like I could nurse in this. I’d love to try something different.

  7. I love the Monroe and Main Placket Tunic. I has that fitted and yet loose look at the same time. It is perfect to pair with a variety of jackets for fall without giving you that bulky look.

  8. I’m loving the belted trench in olive. It would be perfect for the cool fall weather but not too warm that I’d be sweating up a storm. Plus it’s incredibly stylish and would go with almost everything!

  9. I have one of those ‘mommy apron’ bellies and can’t abide not having it covered so I Adore the length of their tops!

  10. I really like the Sporty Hooded Jacket because it’s casual & looks comfortable enough to wear everyday with jeans, but would make me look a lot more polished than I do in my usual hoodies.

  11. I absolutely love the reversible skirt look. Two outfits in one piece saves you mula! I love the unique design and it’s the perfect length for my chubby legs! Thanks for the chance!

  12. I love the animal peplum dress, it’s so pretty can be worn for a classy dinner party and also a fun night out on the town paired with my favorite 6 inch heels

  13. The look I like would be the Baroque Leggings. That is all I wear is leggings because it is the only bottom that is comfortable to wear and fits my ever expanding figure.

  14. I really like the Pocket Surplice Dress and the Multi-Pocket Hobo Purse. I think the dress would fit my shape and I am a purse junky 🙂
