Fall Favorites, over at Everlane

September 26, 2017

A few weeks ago Everlane debuted their denim line, which seemed widely well-received, even if the bulk of them were skinny jeans. (It seems that many of us are clamoring for an updated silhouette). Have you gotten your jeans yet? I’d love to hear what you think. I have been enjoying my mid blue ‘Modern Boyfriend’ jeans (featured above) and I like them even more now that I switched from a 26 to a 27. They’re fitted but relaxed and the mid blue is a shade that goes nicely with both dark and light tones.

Looking forward, Everlane has a lot of great things in the works for fall, namely cashmere. From what I’ve heard, they plan to stick close to their $100 price point again. And, from the sneak preview online, I spy that the donegal cashmere is back! This is the fabric that sold out two years ago and hasn’t really been seen since. I am excited to see that they are bringing it back. My donegal cropped sweater is one of my most-worn sweaters! The waffle knit cashmere looks pretty amazing too.

When I was poking my head around the Everlane offices last month, they showed me some samples of upcoming product. One item that caught my eye was their filled bomber, which also just popped up in the ‘Coming Soon’ section. It looks even better in person! Short, warm jackets are an excellent accompaniment for wide leg pant styles. I usually try to rock my long rain jackets with them, but I’m not sold on the results so far. Perhaps a bomber would be a decent option.

In any case, I wanted to let you guys know I updated my curated picks over on my Everlane page. Let me know if you have questions about any particular items. I’ve been wearing my jeans a lot, yay! They are super comfortable, and I have my modern chelsea boots on standby for when it gets too cold for bare ankles. The Day Market Tote (seen above) has been an unexpected winner for me. They sent it to me as a press sample and I was mildly interested, until I started using it. Then I couldn’t stop. It’s so sturdy and structured, I feel like it could withstand anything. Adding a simple black tote to almost any look makes me feel pretty chic.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

    The Everlane jeans were SUCH a disaster for me. I got my usual size, and even checked the detailed sizing against my own, and they were way to small at the hip and butt. The proportions were just off. Very sad. I ended up getting some J. Crew jeans instead. Not ethical, but at least they are high quality and fit me.

      Like Leah, I found the Everlane skinnies too tight in the hips/butt, and also too loose in the waist (especially in the mid-rise; the high rise wasn’t so tight). I also found the fit a little strange in the calves, so I returned both and reordered the high rise in the ankle length to see if there is any difference. The tracking says they were just delivered today, so we’ll see how they feel when I get home. I also ordered a pair of 9″ rise skinnies from Madewell which fit pretty well, aside from a gap at my waist. My tailor can take them in, but last time things got awkward when she told me “your waist is so small, but your butt…” and clasped her hand over her mouth. So basically, fingers crossed on those Everlanes! 😂

        Krystal, I would be super interested in how the high risers ankle everlane jeans fit you! Based on the reviews of the mid rise, I ordered two sizes up and like you mentioned, they are HUGE in the waist and a little too big in the legs…but I am afraid the next size down will be too snug… I was thinking maybe the high risers would fit better in one size up.

      • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 1:00 pm

        Oh, that’s too funny! I am always looking for pants that make me look like I have an actual booty, so you’re lucky! But UGH to the jeans. I hope round two works for you!

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 12:58 pm

      That is such a bummer Leah!! Gosh, jeans are hard! I am glad you found an option that works. Hopefully you’ll wear your J.Crew ones for many years to come!

    I ordered SIX pairs of everlane jeans and returned them ALL. They just don’t work for my body type despite the five star reviews on line. I will stick to Madewell jeans from now on. They are more expensive and more stretchy but at least they fit me.

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 1:01 pm

      Boo! At least you can’t say you didn’t try though. Buying jeans period is hard, but buying them online is even harder!

  • Reply Cooper September 26, 2017 at 5:43 pm

    I ordered five pairs of Everlane jeans within 10 minutes of the site going live and they are still back ordered. Fingers crossed they will ship this week. One pair of the mid-rise skinnies came in early and my usual size was so tight I couldn’t even get the button within two inches of closing. I’m hoping the modern boyfriend will be a better fit, otherwise I am on the hunt for the new jeans once again.

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 1:02 pm

      That’s crazy, I hope your other pair comes soon, and works well for you. Jeans shopping is so tricky. There are almost too many options, but at the same time, not enough. Just in case it helps, Shopbop has their jeans on sale right now.

    Sorry to hear that the Everlane jeans didn’t work out for the people above me :( Andrea, I ended up ordering a pair of the ankle high rise skinny jeans in dark indigo because of your review, and I LOVE them. The weight is fantastic!! I struggle to find jeans I like with a high cotton content. So, to find jeans that are the right weight AND are ethically produced 🙌🏻 🙌🏻 🙌🏻

    I might try a different style in the next pair I order, although I will always be a fan of the skinny jean. It’s a closet staple for me. Thanks for your Everlane jean review!

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 1:04 pm

      I agree, the fabric on those high rise skinnies in dark indigo is GOLD. I only wish they would have made a demi boot cut or a straight leg in that fabric too. So glad I could help and that your jeans worked out for you!

    I’m always hit or miss with Everlane. Which is why I’m super excited my local Nordstrom will be carrying the brand for the next month! (I hope it becomes permanent.) This way I can try things on and see what fits without keeping something imperfect just because I hate returning things (guilty).

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 1:04 pm

      Bingo! That’s so exciting, I hope your trying-on in productive. I think it’s genius that they’re doing that! Why do you feel guilty returning things?

  • Reply Ashley September 27, 2017 at 8:16 am

    Love the look. The jeans look great on you. I’m still on the fence about my Everlane jeans purchase. I got the mid-rise ankle fit. They seem to fit my waist well, but are so baggy in the butt and legs. I did have to size up because my actual size didn’t fit in the wait but fit great in the butt and legs. I want to embrace the more “boyfriend”, baggy trend but I really wanted my skinnies to be skinny! Question, what size did you get in the Everlane linen button up you’re wearing?

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 1:06 pm

      That is tough. I like some looseness in my jeans, but baggy is another story. I wonder if you could dry them? I am wearing a 6 in the Everlane linen button up.

  • Reply Shelbi September 27, 2017 at 2:31 pm

    I love those shoes!!! They’re Everlane too? I have a couple of items from them, but my body is a bit weird and some of their pieces look good on me, and some of them don’t. I just wish I was crazy rich so I could get everything tailor made to fit my crazy body!

    I love your Everlane page by the way. ;)

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 9:50 pm

      Yes, they are! Oh man, I wish I could do that too. Fit is everything!
      Thanks, have you been to the fit lab in SF?

    I ordered the Everlane boyfriend fit in my standard Madewell size (which is about one size down from what I was on the Everlane chart) based on your detailed review (thank you!!!), AND I LOVE THEM. I have hips and a booty with a smaller waist, and these loosen up during the first 30 minutes of wear to a comfy fit, then stay that size/shape without bagging, sagging, or looking “off.” They’re not skinnies, but they skim my figure in a flattering way versus being a real boyfriend fit, and have the straight leg you described. I wore them for four days straight. Still looked great on day four. Not even ashamed. :) The denim is of wonderful quality, and the stitching/construction is just great. I got them in the mid blue first and stalked the black in my size until I saw them pop up in stock. Soooo excited for those to arrive. :)

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 9:52 pm

      Yay, so excited to hear this Meg!

  • Reply Koyuki September 27, 2017 at 5:35 pm

    I found the high-waist skinnies (ankle length, dark wash) faaaaar more flattering than the Madewell iteration, which were too stretchy and leggings-y for me. The denim here is sturdier, and gives a more 1950s/French-nerdy-girl look. I bought them in my normal size and they fit great – and my (round-for-my-frame) booty looks fantaaaaastic. I highly recommend – it does NOT feel like just another jean mining the high-waist skinny trend, but rather a statement on its own. 😊

    • Reply Andrea September 27, 2017 at 9:53 pm

      Yes, I hear that Koyuki, your iteration of the high rise skinnies makes them sound so good! Which they are. Just not sure if I’m sold on them for me yet. The fabric is pretty damn good though!

  • Reply Helen September 28, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    Ordered these and actually love them! I found that the waist and butt area was really tight but stretched out to be more comfortable within a few wears. I do love that the denim is sturdy and not like the jeggings that a lot of fast fashion places are doing! Love your outfit here so much <3

    I ordered a 25 ankle in the high rise skinny and was super disappointed :( They fit perfectly in the waist (I love the rise!) and the ankle was a pretty good height, but they were really baggy in the butt and thighs. It seemed almost like the pants expected me to be an “hourglass” shape. Alas, still searching for a solid pair of ethically, sustainably made jeans at a decent price point.

    I love those BF jeans on you! I feel like those fits are harder to get right, so I got Everlane’s mid rise skinnies in the bone colour. Compared to other brands in my regular size 29, they do fit a bit tighter, especially in the bum/hip area, but not uncomfortably for me. I’ve only worn them once so far but the denim seems thick, so you can wear them in the winter and the wind doesn’t blow right through. I do find that the mid rise is a bit lower than I would’ve imagined. So…. of course I went and ordered the high rise skinny in dark indigo to compare :) Waiting on those in the mail right now. The high rise Paige denim is my comfort zone but those jeans are very, very thin. Fingers crossed Everlane skinnies are the perfect winter jean!

    • Reply Andrea October 12, 2017 at 10:31 am

      I do love how thick the fabric is! Paige was my go-to jeans brands for a few years, and you’re right, they were totally thin! Hope the Everlane ones work out well for you!
