Anyone else excited about the NEW Universal Thread Clothing line that made it’s way to Target this week? This girl is!🙋 Mainly because this line was totally inspired by some of my favorite Madewell items, but at a more affordable price. I was super excited to try on the items and did an Instagram Stories Try-On for you all, but wanted to link the items here for quick shopping purposes + do a mini Universal Thread Review. I did not try everything on in their line, but picked out a few items I was interested in. Not all stores carry the entire Universal Thread line, so be sure to look online too!
I am 4’10”. I wear a Small in Tops and 25/26 in Bottoms. I do like to size up for an oversized look.
Women’s Striped Short Sleeve Button Down Shirt
I semi-regret not getting this one. I was hesitant because it was a little tight and I should have sized up to a medium, because I think I would have loved it. The small was just a little too snug and the material was more sheer, so I definitely would wear a bralette or tank underneath. I may go back to grab a medium, because it’s really cute!
Women’s Ruffle Sleeve T-Shirt
I really wanted to love this shirt because it looks great on the hanger, but I wasn’t a fan of the sleeves. The sleeves were like a regular t-shirt with a ruffle hem midway up, which wasn’t flattering to me. The ruffle look this season has me swooning and I wanted to add this one to my wardrobe. I may go back and try the striped one I linked below, but for now, I skipped this one. I sized up to a medium in this one because I prefer my tops to be a little loose, but I wasn’t sold.
Women’s Tie Front Striped Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt
Okay, this is definitely going to be a spring trend this year! I absolutely LOVE this shirt. When I first tried it on I liked it and decided to purchase it. I wore it today and it was so comfy. I think I am going to go back and grab it in a couple other colors, plus it was under $20! You can wear it tied in the front or you can keep it untied, but I am loving the cute front tie this year.
Women’s Open Layering Cardigan
This was probably one of my favorite items. The material was good quality, it fit very well, and I love the pink as a transition piece into spring. I’m wearing a small and it fits true to size.
Women’s High-Rise Released Hem Skinny Jeans
I really wanted to love these jeans. I tried them on with all of the tops above, but because of my height, they just didn’t work for me. They bunched a little at the knees on me. In store they only had Regular lengths, but I know online you can purchase them in Short, which I may do, but I’m also eyeing the Madewell Drop Hem ones that these are inspired by. I am all about a pair of good quality, flattering, long-lasting jeans, and those Madewell ones may have my heart, but I still go back to these as an alternative option!
