Everlane Basics to Stockpile (and Skip)

I discovered Everlane in 2014 and have been a loyal customer ever since. While they’re still not a bastion of perfect ethics, they continue to make strides in the transparency department, and a lot of their newer products – especially this season – are made with renewable or recycled fibers, which is something I really believe will have a ripple effect among their competitors.

While I have tried a lot of items from Everlane, there are a handful of items that I cannot imagine living without simply because they’ve been staples in my wardrobe for years.

I love Everlane’s basics, but not everything has been a perfect fit. With years of Everlane reviews under my belt, I wanted to take this opportunity to share my Everlane Favorites, as well as share a few duds.

There’s also free 2-day shipping through Monday at midnight!

The Best Everlane Basics

Things to Stockpile

Everlane Pima Micro Rib T-shirts, $28-35

Try the: Crew Neck, Open V-Neck, Funnel Neck

I have most of the pima collection in gray and black, and I wear them constantly during the colder months. They fit close to the body, are subtly insulating, and are really flattering, too. I order one size up from my normal size.

Everlane Cotton Crew, $18

I live in these during warmer months, and especially love pairing them with vintage midi-length skirts. They’re not too boxy and the length is great for tucking in. I go one size up in these, as well, but if you want a tighter fit – or have a straighter body type – you might want to go with your regular size.

Everlane Day Glove, $115

Truly a brilliant basic shoe, the higher vamp makes these feel like a hug on your feet. But make sure to go with a half-size up if you have high arches or wider feet, and take a little time to break in the heel.

Everlane ReNew Teddy Liner, $68

This works really great as a liner under coats and as a standalone jacket on more mild days. It has that vintage camping vibe that I didn’t know I liked until I tried it. I went with my normal size. I’ve seen other bloggers recommend sizing down, but that really wouldn’t work for my proportions, and I don’t think there’s any way to really make this look less boxy. But it’s very practical.

Things to Save Up For

Everlane Alpaca Sweater, $95

I get A LOT of use out of this sweater, and when I’m traveling I wear it in transit and even to sleep in. It’s lightweight and perfectly temperature-regulating. There is a bit of nylon, which is sadly an issue for biodegradation, but it also means the sweater isn’t nearly as thick or impractically warm as 100% alpaca. I would recommend taking your regular size.

Everlane Day Boots, on sale for $175

(from 9pm PST 12/9 to 9pm 12/10)

It took me over a year from their release to buy these boots, but I’m so glad I did. So far I have worn them to an interview, a formal party, 2 Christmas caroling gigs, and 2 casual parties in addition to everyday wear. They dress up everything just enough to make me feel really put-together, but they’re not over-the-top or out of character for me to wear, and they’re quite comfortable considering they have a bit of a heel. I got my regular boot size and would not recommend sizing up since the leather is soft and flexible.

Everlane Cashmere Scarf, $98

Made with Grade-A cashmere, this deceptively simple-looking scarf is the perfect weight and length. I can wrap it around my neck twice for extra warmth, and the neutral color – I have it in gray – makes it an easy choice to throw on before heading outside in the winter.

Things to Skip

  • Everlane Pima Stretch Collection: Not to be confused with the rib knit collection, this collection is simply too thin, too stretchy, and too prone to becoming misshapen.

  • Everlane V-neck: Though the cut of the neckline is nice, it tends to get wavy after washing.

  • Everlane Denim: I really tried with the denim, but for me, the rise isn’t high enough and the leg from the thigh to the knee is too tight. I enjoyed the button-fly cigarette jeans for a season, but when I gained some weight this fall, I decided to switch to AE Curvy Jeans for a better overall fit.
