new reasons to love everlane

0 Permalink 7

 

after discovering the san francisco-based brand a couple years ago, my affections for everlane have only grown over time. since their inception in 2010, the sustainable brand has become a mainstay not only in the world of ethical fashion but mainstream design as well. it seems like everywhere i look, someone is singing its praises. and with even more newly released collections, the lauds are only bound to continue. (psst! read more about their history and mission here).

my very first everlane purchase was a grey cashmere crew-neck sweater (pictured above). and even two years later, i still wear it at least once a week. despite those many wears (and subsequently many trips to the dry cleaners), it has held up over time and manages to be just as cozy as it was the first time i slipped it on. before this sweater i had never owned a piece of cashmere as i never could justify the price tag that came with owning such a luxurious fabric. but this sweater is $100 and while that is still an investment, it is far less expensive than i’ve seen with other brands. plus with the amount of times i’ve worn this thing, it has paid for itself at least two times over (i also own it in black!).

initially known for their basics (S owns this soft tee and loves it!), everlane has continually reinvented itself over the past seven years -adding a rainbow of colors to their once neutral color palette as well as a number of new silhouettes -including their recently launched wide-leg crop pant and their “day heel” which already has a waiting list. every time i visit everlane’s website these days, i feel as though they are on the verge of launching yet another new collection. today i’ve rounded up some of my favorite pieces, including a few that have already found a spot on my wishlist.

 

the day heel || as i mentioned above, this blocked heel is one of the newest additions to everlane’s highly coveted shoe collection. built for comfort then style, the elasticized back and the two-inch block heel make this shoe a game changer for perpetual stiletto-sporters. aptly named the day heel for the fact that it can be worn all day long, this shoe boasts a sleek rounded toe and comes in five colors -including a natural suede (which i have my eye on) and a gorgeous blush color perfect for spring. if heels aren’t your thing, everlane also just launched the day flat and the day mule!

sport rib tank dress || given my height (a hair under 5′ 7″), i’m always on the lookout for a midi-length dress. this ribbed version is chic, sleek, and sexy. the razorback neckline gives it a sportier feel while its curve-hugging silhouette makes it perfect for date night. it comes in black and navy.

cotton box-cut tee || i feel like the high-waisted pant/jean movement has really helped out the cause of the cropped tee if only for the fact that long-torsoed girls like myself can finally wear them without fear of our midriffs hanging out. if everlane has a bread and butter, it’s definitely their basic tees. they are constantly reinventing them with the subtlest of details, transforming a wardrobe staple into something that feels new and fresh. this cotton box-cut style is no exception. a sucker for stripes (always), i’m partial to the black and white striped version, but you can never go wrong with classic white! oh and did i mention it’s less than $20?

wide leg crop pant || if you’re a regular reader, the fact that i included the wide-leg crop on my list should come as zero surprise. it is truly my ideal silhouette and i have embraced it as such. for anyone who has ever admired jesse kamm’s sailor pants, everlane’s version is almost a dead ringer at a sixth of the price(!). everlane knows that buying pants can be tricky (especially with sizing inconsistencies across brands), so they’ve even gone as far as to making this guide to not only prove that the classic silhouette is flattering on a variety of body types but also to assist shoppers in determining their ideal size. i have yet to purchase a pair of my own, but i do think the bone-colored pair would be perfect for summer!

slim classic french terry crewclassic terry sweatpant || talk about a weekend uniform (or perhaps a cozy travel outfit?) -this sweatsuit is must-have for any wardrobe. wear it together, or separately -on a lazy morning sipping coffee in bed, or with sneakers and giant sunglasses for your sunday afternoon grocery store run. it comes in grey & black.

drape trench coat || a trench coat is a staple in every working wardrobe. it’s the perfect layering piece and can instantly make any outfit feel more put together. you may remember i wore my belted trench in this post last december. sadly that one is no longer available, BUT everlane’s drapey option is great (and budgetary) alternative!

silk wide leg pant || i was immediately drawn to these silk wide leg trousers upon eyeing them on everlane’s website. but then i purchased these instead and it seemed silly to have two pairs of striped wide leg pants in my wardrobe. at least for now it does. unlike the madewell pants, everlane’s version is made of silk, instantly giving them a dressier vibe. they’re the type of pants you could wear with a chic black turtleneck, black stilettos, and a bold red lip to a cocktail party and be the best dressed person in the room. and on that note, i think i just convinced myself i need to snag a pair.
