Everlane reviews: Soft cotton square crew, cashmere rib round crew, wide leg crop pant

With the holidays coming up in a few short weeks, I wanted to share my thoughts on most of my recent Everlane purchases. I’m a sucker for their sweaters, so I picked up the highly-rated soft cotton square crew and their recently-released ribbed cashmere. (I got one of their waffle knit cashmere sweaters last year and it’s one of my favorites!) I also had my eyes on a pair of their wide leg cropped pants and finally purchased myself a pair when the “short” lengths were released.

For sizing reference, I am typically a size XS/0 at J.Crew, Madewell, LOFT, Anthropologie, Gap, and Banana Republic. I wear a size 4-6 in H&M and its sister stores (depending on the item). For stores that use juniors sizing, such as Forever 21 and ModCloth, I am usually a size small. My Uniqlo size is either XS or small (again, depending on the item). Everlane includes garment measurements for each item, which I find incredibly helpful when it comes to determining the right size to buy. I previously reviewed my Everlane tees, silk and sweatshirt, my older sweaters and cardigan, my linen tees, cotton poplin skirt, and box-cut tee dress, more cashmere sweaters and skinny jeans, and a sweatshirt and even more pairs of jeans. You can browse all of my clothing reviews here (mostly Everlane and Grana).

Everlane The Soft Cotton Square Crew in heather grey — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

The Soft Cotton Square Crew (heather grey, size XS)

I ordered this sweater right around the time Everlane released The Cotton Long-Sleeve Crew, which is less expensive than this sweater but looks almost exactly the same. I believe the long-sleeve crew is lighter and thinner but cannot confirm since I don’t own it. :) The cotton square crew that I own has a nice weight to it. I love the boxy, oversized style with the subtle high-low hem that works well with high-rise jeans and pants. I’m not a huge fan of the dropped shoulders, but they do lend a more casual vibe. The cotton stretches out slightly with wear which was to be expected (see around my elbows). I adore this sweater and have already worn it so much since I got it! It’s an easy through-on-and-go garment.

How I wore it: with Hunter boots and socks

Everlane The Cashmere Rib Round Crew in loden — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

The Cashmere Rib Round Crew (loden, size XS)

I was definitely not planning on ordering another cashmere sweater this season…until Everlane released the ribbed cashmere—and in this beautiful dark, slightly heather green color called loden. I loved it when I first saw it in the $100 cashmere crew, but I already own three of those sweaters so I decided to hold off. I’m glad I did because then this sweater was released and I ordered it right away! The fit is oversized in my usual XS, which is just how I like it. I appreciate that the sleeves are long enough on my long arms. It’s not super noticeable in these photos, but you’ll see in outfit photos that the sweater is banded at the hem and it tends to billow out, and I personally love that! I don’t think this sweater is quite as soft as my waffle knit cashmere crew but it’s still quite soft. It’s another cashmere winner in my book! :)

How I wore it: with black denim and with boyfriend jeans and cognac

Everlane The Wide Leg Crop Pant in ochre — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

The Wide Leg Crop Pant (ochre, size 0 short)

Even though I’m short and not terribly fond of the wide-leg trend, I couldn’t help but want to try a pair of their famous wide leg crop pants…especially when they released the “short” lengths! I purchased the ochre color in size 0. The short length is the perfect length on me and hits a couple of inches above my ankle bone (I’m 5’4” for reference). The high-rise is surprisingly comfortable, and even though a lot of reviewers said they went down a size, I stuck with my true size and think it was the right choice. It’s not constricting around my hips or butt but still fits in the waist (and I didn’t find them to stretch out much after wearing them all day). The ochre color is a beautiful dark tan that looks good with pretty much anything, which is exactly what I was hoping for!

How I wore it: with cropped cashmere and with stripes and a leather jacket

I was searching my blog to make sure I didn’t already use this post title, and I realized a couple of funny things: 1) when I write about this black cashmere sweater, I always mention how voluminous it is (see exhibits A, B, C) and 2) apparently I wrote in this post from two years ago that “I’m not really into voluminous pant legs and voluminous sleeves” (with regards to bohemian-style outfits). I guess I am, in fact, a fan of voluminous pant legs and voluminous sleeves…when done like they are done here. ;) Ha!

This look came together as I was deciding what to wear with my new “dark cabernet”-colored ankle boots from Madewell. They ended up being the only thing I kept from my birthday order at the end of September. I love how the different colors came together in this look, and to my surprise, I’m a huge fan of the swingy, loose sweater paired with the wide leg pants. Typically, I’d wear a more slim-fitting top to offset the wide leg silhouette, but I don’t mind this (voluminous!) sweater here. This look was cozy while sitting feeling more put-together for work. It even worked well for post-work drinks and eats at a local cider company (while listening to a science talk by my undergrad advisor!).

Even though it’s still technically fall (Thanksgiving is only 10 days away!), it’s starting to feel a whole lot like winter around here. Our high temperatures lately have been hovering below 50°F, and our nighttime lows are bottoming out at almost 20°F! Safe to say that it’s downright chilly in the mornings and not much warmer by the time the afternoon rolls around. A brisk breeze on top of the already cold temps made for a very short photo shoot.

The only good aspect of the cold is the opportunity to wear all the fuzzy and cozy things. This was my first time wearing this nubby pullover that I bought in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale four moths ago! It runs large, and there was no size below this one available, so it fits huge on me, but I don’t mind so much. I just think I look a little bit like a linebacker in it, haha! A very soft, huggable linebacker. ;) I foresee this pullover getting a number of wears at work since, like many offices, mine has issues regulating the indoor temperature (pretty much everyone has their own space heater to keep warm).

To brave the cold, I layered a cashmere sweater under the pullover. I felt like wearing something other than blue denim, so I decided to wear my grey jeans…and I like how they go with the dark collar on the pullover. I cuffed the jeans twice to keep them above the top of the boots, and then I cuffed the sleeves on the pullover so the sweater could peek out (plus, the sleeves are long; they hit at my wrist when I have them folded over). Casual, cozy, and perfect for fall!
