Edited to Add: Two years later, and I still love Everlane. I’ve written an updated Everlane review of 30+ pieces, including styling ideas and sizing tips right here! Don’t miss it if you’re thinking about placing an order. xo, Lindsey
Have you heard of Everlane? It has become my new favorite stop for online shopping. Because you can only purchase online, I’m sharing a review of sizing, since those size charts can be tricky to navigate. While in general I’m slimming down the places I choose to shop, Everlane is one of the few stores I’ve added to the list because of its array of modern basics, ethically made.
If you’re trying out a capsule wardrobe… or just want to make quality purchases that are durable… or if you’re concerned with the factories where your clothes are manufactured, I think Everlane is a great fit. But, who wants the hassle + waste of shipping products back and forth across the country? So, keep reading for my take on Everlane sizing and quality.
Everlane Silk Round Collar Shirt
I can almost guarantee if you watch The Honorable Woman series, then you will wish you were wearing a silk shirt. It is so feminine and surprisingly warm. I’ve layered mine under sweaters, worn it alone, tucked, and untucked. The round collar gives an extra special, almost Parisian, detail.
I ordered a Medium in Blush, since I wanted a slightly longer hem in the back. I think I could have chosen a Small and still been fine, but I am really happy with this drape + fit. (For reference, I am a size small or 4 at JCrew.) The silk is just slightly sheer, but no need to wear an extra layer underneath. And the blush color is super flattering, especially for pale winter skin.
Everlane Crew Sweatshirt
This sweatshirt was at the tippy top of my Christmas wish list, and thanks to my little brother it ended up under the Christmas tree! I totally believe in the tip about shopping for your Tuesday afternoon rather than a Saturday night out. And my Tuesdays look comfy, cozy, washable, and a little bit tomboy – just like this sweatshirt.
I picked a small (my normal size at JCrew), and while it was originally a little longer in the arms and torso, it did shrink in the wash. I prefer the fit now though, since it helps keep the sweatshirt from looking sloppy. If you did want that tunic look, I’d recommend going up a size.
Everlane Cotton Drop-Shoulder Tee
Well, there’s a reason this tee keeps selling out. Between the casual drop shoulder, longer sleeves, side vent, + shirt tail, this is anything but your average tee. Thankfully, at $22 you can afford to buy a couple. This is where splurging on the basics pays such high rewards. I absolutely wear a t-shirt at least 4-5 times per week, so spending my money on a cute, well-made tee means I will look put-together 4-5x a week (while still feeling really comfy).
A few notes: I bought a small (my normal size), and it fits perfectly … but I do not want it to shrink at all. So, I’m only air-drying it. If you want a more drapey look, or to be able to throw it in the dryer – go up a size. Also, because of the longer sleeves it doesn’t really layer under things well. The sleeves get all bunched up. The cotton is super soft and lovely!
Thanks for reading, and I hope this Everlane review was helpful! I wanted to write the kind of post I was looking for, before I clicked “Buy”. I’ve also written a review of the Everlane Swing Trench HERE, and an Everlane review for men HERE. I’m happy to answer specific questions in the comments. xoxo. Lindsey
