Best of Everlane
Everlane is one of those brands that I’ve worn for years, but never written about.
The San Francisco brand has a cult following based on its values of radical transparency and sustainable focused clothing – but does it live up to the hype?
Lately, I’ve accumulated a number of items from Everlane that I would call closet staples so I thought it was finally time to do an in depth review.
That’s not to say everything at Everlane is gold!
Some have been complete misses so today’s post will include all of my Everlane items: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

My first Everlane purchase was the snap backpack and ‘jesus sandals’ (I forget the real name) for a trip to Thailand in 2012.
At the time, my favorite items from the brand were their accessories and today I still think Everlane nails high quality yet affordable shoes and handbags.
Most recently, I’ve come to appreciate their clothing.
Otherwise, keep reading below for my favorite Everlane items!
I’ve organized everything into categories:

90s Cheeky Jean
in Washed Black, size 25
A couple years ago, I could not understand the hype around mom jeans and baggier styles of denim.
My, things have changed.
It took hundreds of pairs of jeans to try on, but I finally found a pair of non-skinny jeans that actually look good – the Everlane 90s cheeky jean.
The pants hug the waist and butt but loosen to a tapered straight leg style that looks good with any type of shoe. They’re high-waisted enough to wear with crop tops… but somehow still flattering when worn with with giant oversized sweatshirts.
I also love the range of colors and inseams that Everlane offers. Try them out and see if you don’t make the switch to straight leg jeans too!
I’ve also tried on lots of Everlane’s denim and pant styles. If you want to see the full list, you can read my more in-depth review post here.
The Drape Trench
in Sandstone, size S
I love trench coats and Everlane makes a truly classic style.
The Drape Trench has double breasted buttons, a slightly oversized fit and handy side pockets. It’s made from a lightweight, breathable fabric that drapes and sways as you walk and it’s incredibly soft and comfortable to wear.
I wear the jacket all the time – as a layering piece over a simple white button down and jeans, as well as to dress up a slightly sloppy outfit, like a sweat suit set with dad sneakers. It’s so easy to pair with anything in your existing closet and it’s held up really well after a couple years of wear.
If you prefer an oversized more structured coat, Everlane also has this trench option!

Clean Silk Cami
I love the deep blue-green of this cami.
It’s pretty enough to wear on its own or under a cardigan for work. The silk, while not quite as silky smooth as pricier silk tops, is made with safer dyes and a more energy efficient factory in what Everlane calls ‘clean’ silk.
I love that it’s not sheer and find the material very soft and comfortable to wear.
The only downside is the pretty spaghetti straps are not adjustable. Personally I have a very short torso so the sizing was perfect, but if you have a long torso you might not like the length.
I like it so much I’m debating getting another in black!

Linen Notch Shirt
I quite like Everlane’s linen.
I have a couple linen items from the brand, like this short sleeve linen shirt. It’s the perfect thing to wear in sticky humid summers and it goes with pretty much everthing.
The linen shirt has a relaxed, slightly boxy shape, and I usually wear it un-tucked.
Plus it’s very versatile.
The slightly structured shape is great for the office while elevating any weekend outfit into a more casual, dressy look!

I’ve ordered a couple Everlane cashmere pieces over the years.
The brand is pretty famous for their affordable cashmere. Personally, I don’t think the cashmere is as soft as more premium cashmere, but it’s decent quality for the price. I have really sensitive skin, and sometimes I find the cashmere itchy (if it’s their recycled cashmere) so I always wear a base layer underneath (like Uniqlo’s heat tech tops).
I recommend buying Everlane cashmere sweaters if you like the style, but not if you’re expecting beautifully soft cashmere that will last for years.
Instead, I usually prefer the brand’s merino wool sweaters! They’re so soft, thick and cozy.[/su_note]
Cashmere Rib Crew
This crewneck sweater has a modern classic design.
Made from what Everlane calls Grade-A Mongolian cashmere, it features a ribbed knit design and rounded collar. I find it very easy to wear, as it’s a mid-weight thick sweater that’s quite warm when layered over a base layer, yet thin enough to wear under a fall jacket.
But, after a couple months of wear, I can already tell it needs some de-fuzzing. And I don’t find this to feel as luxurious as real cashmere, so I think it’s a bit expensive for the price.
Cropped Alpaca Cardigan
I love the soft pale pink color of this cardigan!
Made from a blend of alpaca, nylon and wool, it’s a gorgeous thin knit with slightly ballooned sleeves that taper.
Personally, I think you need to wear something underneath, but if your skin is not as sensitive you might get away with wearing this on its own.
Love the chunky buttons and soft collar. I don’t find it to be a particularly cropped fit, but I also do have a petite torso.

ReNew Teddy Liner
I wore this fleece to death on my Southern road trip.
It’s a nice light but warm layer for cool fall days and it doesn’t wrinkle or take up much space, so it’s very easy to just throw in your bag on the go. Love the large pockets and chunky buttons.
Most of my sweaters are white or cream, so naturally I went for the soft oatmeal color. What’s impressive is the teddy fabric is made from 100% recycled polyester – I never would have guessed from how soft the fabric feels!
Fit wise, I’d say it has a relaxed, casual fit that layers well over henleys and long sleeve tees.

Oversized Double Breasted Blazer
Everlane is known for their over sized blazers and this new version for Fall 2019 is really nicely made, with a fully lined, heavyweight wool fabric.
The fit is very oversized, and looks great dressed up or down. I especially love: the plaid, the boxy shape, the warm fall tone and the deep pockets.
I do find it slightly odd that it only closes with one button, but this is the kind of blazer that (imo) looks best open, so it doesn’t bother me.
Shop Everlane Oversized Blazers (2 colors)
Everlane Denim Short
Everlane’s classic denim shorts on the other hand, I really like.
These shorts are still a ‘mom’ jean fit, with a high raise fit and longer length. What I like is that you can un-cuff the shorts to expose the ragged hem or roll them for a more polished look.
I probably should have sized up. Let’s just say these are not the shorts I wear when I’m going out to eat.
Shop Everlane Shorts (5 colors)
Straight Leg Crop
After loving the wide legged crop, but disliking the straight jean, I was curious if I could find a middle ground. Enter, Everlane’s straight leg crop.
These pants are perfection!
Everlane combined the best of all its pant styles: a soft but broken-in fabric; a huge variety of inseams and colors and the universally flattering crop length. I can’t say enough good things.
I wear these in all seasons and especially love how the white is not see through.

Everlane makes gorgeous backpacks that transition perfectly from a commute to a vacation.
I bought one of the first iterations, with a snap closure, that has held up to some extensive travel and weekly abuse. Its much roomier than it looks!
The ReNew version is an upgrade, as it’s water resistant and made from 100% recycled polyester. It features an exterior laptop pocket, interior slip pockets, 2 side water bottle holders and a magnetic closure to hold everything you need – in one bag!
What I really like is the pass through strap that allows you to slide the backpack right over a carry on bag.
