Although the weather makes it seem like spring is still far far away, my mind is ready for a change. With spring and summer right around the corner (or so we hope), I am eager to update my basics!
Everlane, known for their radical transparency is not only good for your soul but also good for your wallet. They are not shy when it comes to sharing the factories their products are made in, and they’re also happy to share how much it cost to make them. I love how they are also very active on social media, easy to reach and quick to response whenever you have any questions about anything and everything they’re working on. Other than their ethical practice, their products are also top notch in quality.
I only started wearing their tanks last summer, and they have soon become my most reached for items. I currently have 2 of the Ryan Tanks and one of the Cotton Tank, but I cannot wait to get my hands on more of their basics which I know I will be living in comes spring and summer.
- The Cotton Tank / The Ryan Tank
I have both the Cotton Tank and the Ryan tank, I love them both butI have a prefer time and place for each of them. After a season of testing, I find that during the weekend I love the more rigid feel of the Cotton Tank over the soft, body hugging Ryan because it gives my body a little more breathing room. But when it comes to going out at night or wearing to work under a cardigan, I prefer the Ryan because it drapes beautifully and is more feminine.
- The Ryan Pocket Tee
Of all the tees I saw on everlane, this one stands out the most to me. I love the casual drape style and I think the fabric gives out a more fenimen vibe even though you’re pretty much wearing an oversized tee.
- The Cotton V
A staple in every closet is a nice v neck tee. I’ve purchased many from Target when I was in college and practically lived in them, but the fabric is a little too soft and body hugging and the shape does not wash well so you get lots of pilling and wrinkled neckline that makes the shirt look sloppy. I’m hoping to find a long lasting staple tee and this might just be the answer.
- The Slouchy Cotton Slub Tank
Tank tops are my go to when it comes to summer, I love putting a cardigan or jacket/blazer over it so I can have the flexibility of being more formal or very casual. I like how this piece is a little more over sized than their regular Cotton tank, the combination of a more casual shape and the pocket detail gives it a little more edge.
