As I was recently perusing Everlane, thinking about a try-on of some fun new summery finds, I realized that some of my most-worn closet staples are from this brand.
I haven’t covered Everlane very much in a while, but its fabulous clean silk tops, utility barrel pants and boxy shirts are in high rotation over here. It was about time I dive back into the goodness that is Everlane!
Everything I Tried At Everlane, From Summer Dresses To Silk Tops: Try-On
A lovely benefit of shopping Everlane is the majority of its items are all under $200 — with the exception of some outerwear, but this is the case across the board. Thanks to my love for this brand + its exciting selection for summer, I ended up with some really great new pieces.
If you want to get right to perusing the site, you’ll find all of the summery clothing I tried (plus a couple of my longtime faves) below. All pieces but the jumpsuit are under $150. And if you’re looking for a new summer bag…do not skip this striped weekender!
If you’re looking to spend a little less, you can go ahead and jump to my under-$100 section below where I cover a plethora of fun stuff — some new, some of my longtime go-tos.
OL, both of these pieces are new to me this time, and wowza. They’re my faves from the try-on. I adore Everlane’s silk products, and they’re so breezy and lovely to wear against your skin. This short-sleeve button-up is no exception. It is dry-clean only, but I’ve washed it on delicate and laid flat to dry, giving it a quick steam to release wrinkles after.
And the Satin Pull-On Pants? They’re so flowy and perfect for summer.
I often have trouble with drawstring/elastic-waist pants fitting me right in the rise (I have a short torso, and drawstring pants usually balloon out a bit at the lower stomach). These, however, have a nice, taller elastic waist and fit so nicely! I don’t think they’d be an issue either, though, if you have a longer torso. They’re just a great design.
Fit: Both the silk shirt and satin pants run slightly large. I’m typically a 6 though in boxier tops and a small in looser pants. I’d say don’t size up if between and otherwise stick to your normal size.
These Painter Jeans are SO cute. And if you’re a fan of smaller high-end brands like Rudy Jude, you’ll see the similar vibe.
These jeans definitely have a higher rise, but they started to relax just a bit even during my try-on. If you don’t have a pair of white jeans or pants you love, definitely try these. I don’t think they’ll replace the Everlane barrel pants I adore (see them on me below), but if I didn’t have those I’d be breaking these babies in for sure!
Fit: True to size, if not a little small in the waist. I’m a 27/28 in stretch jeans, 29 in these and have a straighter middle.
I recently included this dress in my “Prettiest Postpartum Under $100 Capsule Wardrobe” article. It was so cute that I had to try it, but I think unless you have some height, it’s really overwhelming. It does does hang nicely from the top into the waist, but then there’s just a lot of skirt fabric. It’s a shame because the cotton is soooo comfy soft!
Fit: This is a lot of dress. It’s so comfy, but I think it’s best on those taller than 5’4″. The back is really long.
This is one of the closet staples I mentioned. I LOVE this Clean Silk Relaxed shirt. It’s soft enough to be comfy but luxe enough to look great for everyday outfits or dressed up. It’s so easy to wear.
Fit: Slightly loose and comfy, but not in a slouchy way. True to size. Good for wider ribcages/busts.
Everlane’s satin slip dress feels so lovely on. I think because of the length and the fact that there aren’t any slits, it’s too long on my 5’4″ frame, but gah — it’s sooo comfy, and the fit is fabulous. Perhaps one of the two other softer shades would help it feel less overwhelming. The black isn’t as matte as it seemed on the site.
Fit: TTS, if not slightly big — wearing a 6. There is a keyhole cutout at the back button too, so wearing a regular bra would be tricky with this. Check out Shana’s latest YouTube video on alternative bra options for issues like this!
I’m going to be thinking about Everlane’s workwear-style jumpsuit for a while. It’s so comfy on and not tight, and the fabric is soft but structured. And I’m loving the navy. I didn’t wind up keeping it because I have jumpsuits that I like but don’t wear a ton…but I think this one is comfier than all of them.
The only thing that annoys me about this jumpsuit is that the button placket doesn’t lay flat at the waist. It needs a hook-and-eye closure or tiny snap right there. It wasn’t too tight, just not quite right on me.
Fit: True to size overall for a boxy fit, but size up for more room in the hips.
My Everlane Finds Under $100
We love an under-$100 section, don’t we? I was raised a bargain shopper, and it helps to keep things reasonable most of the time. I love that these items don’t skimp on fabric quality or style in any way!
Everlane also has an under-$100 section on its site, making it easy to find a variety of items from shoes to dresses. Here are the items I tried.
Fit: I preferred sizing up in the Utility Barrel Pants because I’m between a 6 and 8, and the size up was more comfy on my waist. I’ve worn these for a year now and can’t get enough.
Same with the top! The Short-Sleeve Box Shirt is breezy yet has cute structure, and the cotton is so soft like perfect cotton sheets.
Fit: It fits TTS and is just fab worn buttoned up, or with the first button or two undone. Perfection. Great for wider ribcages or if you have problems with buttons gaping at the bust.
Everlane’s crochet tank top is right on-trend and super-cute…and also well made. It feels like thick cotton yarn and great construction, and it seems like it won’t get all loose and slouchy with wear.
Fit: It fits well in the small if I’m wearing high-waisted jeans, but I think I might like a size up for a little more room and length overall.
OK, this off-the-shoulder top is so cute on and has soft, ribbed cotton-blend fabric… I wanted to adore it so I could have something a little different that I don’t have in my wardrobe, but I had trouble getting it to stay rolled perfectly. It’s so cute for a picture, but I felt like I’d be adjusting it all night if I wore it to dinner, so it’s probably a skip. Dang it. Super-cute and soft, though!
Fit: True to size, though a little long for my torso. I have it tucked here, which worked fine. The back is a little finicky too and didn’t quite lay right, and the fabric bunched. If you have a longer torso, this might work better overall.
Ooh, the Linen Workwear Dress is SO comfy. I just love it on my bod. But I can’t decide if it’s too plain for my personal style? It’s a prettier pale sage green, almost gray, in person, which goes well with my green eyes. The jury is out on this dress, but the fabric is great, and it’s nice and breezy! *Update: I just ordered the striped option to try! It also comes in black.
Fit: True to size, if not just slightly small/straight through the hips. The medium fits well, but not if it were any smaller.
If you want to hop right to some very new pieces that dropped since my order came in, hit up Everlane’s whole dress section! SO freaking good!
I wanted to love the Summer Slouch Jeans so much. The wash is great, they’re not too thick, the length is pretty good on me…but they do NOT fit. It was hard to get a pic of how they gape at the back, and gah, they make my butt look flat (it is not). Madewell’s slouchy boyfriend jeans are much better.
Fit: I have an ample booty and thighs, and I’m straighter through the midsection, so skip these Everlane jeans if you are a similar shape. I think perhaps a slim-straight figure would be the body type these would work on and perhaps actually slouch in that boyfriend-jean kinda way.
Et voila, mon amis…another try-on from yours truly in the books. There’s just something I love about trying on a bunch of clothes, and I’m hoping they’re helpful for y’all!
If you have any pieces you’ve been eyeing up lately, let me know! I might just keep on rolling these out. The only problem is, I tend to want to keep too much of it. Haha. But it’s a good practice in decision-making at the least!
