A couple of weeks ago, I shared my Everlane sweater and cardigan reviews. Now it's time for the other half of my Everlane collection: the tees, silk, and marled sweatshirt.
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.
The Box-Cut Tee (white, size XS)
I love this tee! I was very pleasantly surprised by it. Yes, it is cut boxy as the name suggests, so keep that in mind. I don't think it makes me look shapeless, though. The cropped hem is perfect to offset the boxiness. I find it to be not totally opaque but definitely more opaque than the cotton v-neck tee (below). I believe it shrunk very slightly in the wash; if anything, it shrunk a bit width-wise. I love this tee more than the v-neck tee. It feels very "me"; it has more of the vibe I go for with my outfits.
The Cotton V (white, size XS & true black, size XS)
The white v-neck tee was my very first purchase from Everlane and has been my most-worn Everlane item, not surprisingly. I really like how this tee fits, and v-neck isn't too low. The white tee is slightly sheer but not enough to warrant wearing a camisole underneath. A skin-colored bra is fine for me. The tee is slightly long, but it did shrink a bit length-wise when I washed it. (I haven't washed the black tee yet, but I expect the same to happen to it.) It's still a great length for tucking. It's also kind of become a bit more grey from washing; it's fairly obvious when I put it next to the box-cut tee. The only thing that annoys me about it is the fact that the neckline wrinkles kind of like cooked bacon. I did try to iron it out before shooting these photos but you can still see it in the white tee. Overall, I'm very pleased with this tee—pretty obvious considering I purchased a second one in true black (which I liked more than the 'muted black' Everlane also offers). We'll see how much I end up wearing the black tee.
How I wore the white tee: with a chunky cardigan, with boyfriend jeans, with a blazer & trench coat, with a striped skirt, with shorts, with beige and white, with a floral scarf
How I wore the black tee: with a blue skirt
The Silk Pocket (black, size XS)
I picked up this top during their "Pay What You Want" sale held at the end of December 2015. I had been wanting to try their silk, and it was reduced to a price that was just right for me. This top fits well in the XS; the sleeves are long enough, it doesn't pull at the chest, and it drapes nicely. It is somewhat difficult to get on and off because of the slightly dropped shoulders; the seams are tight on my shoulders when I lift up my arms. The length is also longer than I would prefer, but it's really a minor issue. The black is not as rich as I was expecting, but it's still nice. The silk is very soft and feels nice quality. However, there's a section of thread along the seam of my left arm that was fraying quite strangely. I trimmed it and it doesn't seem to have caused any major problems. I haven't washed it, but I'm going to likely hand wash it when the time comes. I did steam it when I first got it to get out the wrinkles, but I ended up needing to iron it (over a cloth) for the really stubborn wrinkles. I think there might also be a couple of spots from the water from steaming, but they're barely noticeable.
The Crew Sweatshirt (navy marled, size S)
I debated between size XS and S for this sweatshirt when I ordered it a little over a year ago. I opted to go for the small to have a bit of extra sleeve length. This resulted in a slightly boxier body, but it's not too boxy. The length is perfect, and while I would prefer the sleeves to be a touch longer, it's still a nice sweatshirt that I wear a lot—especially to lounge around the house! The neckline does curl and stick out a bit. However, this sweatshirt washes really well, and I would definitely recommend it if you're in the market! :)
