An Everlane tee is a staple in my closet. The brand was built around the ethically made, durable, well-priced tee, made in the USA. It’s the tee you can feel good about buying. As the warmer weather has rolled in, I noticed that many of my tees were looking a bit worse for wear. Two summers ago, I was pregnant and just sized up in soft cotton Everlane tees. Last summer, I was nursing and still not my normal size, so I kept wearing those tees and decided to wait to buy new until I was done pulling those tees up and down. During the winter, I mostly switched those tees to wear to bed, and now it’s officially time to retire them.
So, I ordered a bunch of new tees from Everlane to try on, and I snapped a few pictures along the way to share with you all. In all of these, I’m wearing my usual size, small, which I also wear at J.Crew and Madewell.
This was one of the first shirts I owned from Everlane (see it here too). It’s not sheer, even in white. The neckline keeps it’s shape after washing and drying. It’s a bit of that tomboy style I prefer and slightly cropped. For this price, these are excellent tees I highly recommend.
Since I have gotten so much use out of the pocket box tee, I wanted to try Everlane’s new pocketless version too. I actually like this style even better because it seems more versatile and easy for layering. Sometimes the pocket can get in the way with longer necklaces or cardigans. The neckline and hems look the same, but it isn’t quite as boyish.
This is another new style that was recently launched. It’s a bit more slim fitting, very feminine cut. Just to compare, I also ordered the U-neck tee, which has been a popular style. I absolutely prefer the Scoop Neck to the U-Neck for a few reasons: the neckline is just slightly higher; the sleeves have a a seam across the shoulders, instead of down the shoulder; it has a straight hem; and isn’t loose-fitting which felt sloppy on the U-Neck to me. This is an easy tee to wear with anything, and it tucks in beautifully.
I’ve never worn Everlane’s linen before, but they have had such great reviews over the last couple seasons. The Cotton V-Neck has been a go-to of mine, but I like the elevated look and drape of the linen for wearing out. It has a great texture up close (although I felt the white was too sheer). The tee has a longer length and sleeves. From what I’ve read, it is washable (a must!) and if you air-dry it will stay looking like new.
Keeping with my uniform of late – a box tee with high waist shorts or denim – this tee is so lovely in it’s simplicity. It hits right at my hips and would look equally good with a pencil skirt or jean shorts. I especially like the way the marled grey linen.
