Fall/Winter Capsule Items:
Tops, Sweaters + Blazers:
I had SUCH a hard time choosing which color I wanted in this amazing sweater! Ultimately, I went with “mustard,” because it’s one of my favorite fall colors AND I knew I wanted these cords and really love a monochromatic look.
Sizing: Oversized, runs big, went with XS.
You guys have been requesting that I review this tee ever since it came out this summer and I FINALLY got around to ordering it! As you probably imagined, it does not disappoint. I love the slinky, oversized fit–it’s perfect for knotting–and it’s SO incredibly soft, and of course–as the name would imply–light as air. It’s the perfect year-round layer, but I especially love this color (called “Oatmeal”) for fall and winter!
I love a good white button-down for ANY season, but I think it’s especially great for layering under sweaters in the winter to put a more classic, polished spin on them! You’ll see in a second. ?The one I’m wearing here is old, but my favorite tip when buying a white shirt for layering is to shop the men’s section! Everlane makes a great men’s oxford–I usually go for a men’s small!
I am IN. LOVE. With these cords, you guys. When I ordered them online, I was still unsure–I definitely thought, “I’m either going to love these or hate these ?” and unsurprisingly (as with pretty much everything Everlane)–I ADORE them. A lot of my style inspiration is pulled from the 70’s and these are very 70’s, but modern at the same time. Plus, another bonus: they’re really warm! The color I’m wearing here is Golden Brown.
Another big request you guys have had–comparing the ’90’s Cheeky Jean to the regular Cheeky Straight jean! Here’s the quick answer: I love them BOTH. The ’90’s Cheeky is definitely what I’d consider a “mom jean” type cut–vintage inspired, high-waisted, but looser through the thigh (and where your thigh meets your butt, if that makes sense ?) a straight leg (it’s a bit of a wider straight fit than the Cheeky straight, IMO). Here I’m wearing the “Vintage Dark Wash” in regular length! I love the vintage feel of these, and how they’ve got oneeee little rip in the knee–which is just enough edge for me!
Fun fact: All of their denim is made in a LEED certified factory (you can read all about their factory here!) that recycles 98% of its water and relies on alternative energy sources and repurposes byproducts throughout the manufacturing process!
Sizing: TTS–I wear size 25 (which is what I wear in almost every jean size). They do not stretch!
I now have these boots in three colors because I’m THAT obsessed with them. They are truly the most comfortable booties you can find. The leather is so soft and buttery, they require absolutely no break-in! I can walk for miles in them at a time–I even wore them all over Portugal. This Ecru color is my latest addition to my wardrobe, and I could not be more obsessed with them. I typically feel like white booties are too edgy for me, but because these are a soft (more of a buttercream) color, they totally feel classic and almost vintage-inspired––so up my alley!
If you’re looking for a low, polished, beautiful pump–look no further! I love the pointed toe and the square shape on the top. These are great for everything from date night to the office.
If you love the Day boot, you will love the ReKnit Glove boot! They are ALSO so incredibly comfortable, but they’re made of a stretchy knit, and cut higher and tighter on the ankle, making them excellent for cold weather because they keep your ankles warm! The black is back-ordered right now, but I promise they’ll be worth the wait! (Many other colors available though!)
I’ve had these loafers for a long time now and I love them so much. Because of their sleek shape, I think they are sleeker and more versatile than many loafers that have a rounded toe, so they’re easier to dress up! They definitely take some breaking in but it’s well worth it!
Sizing: Run small/narrow–go up 1/2 size!
Now, let’s get into the outfits!
One of my FAVE outfits of the whole set–I love a monochromatic look AND a lot of texture in my outfits–and this outfit checks both boxes! Of course, this definitely can work with brown boots or black boots as well, but I adore their Day Boots in the Ecru color. It puts a fresh twist on fall outfits (and I’ll be thankful to have them to brighten up winter outfits when I’m sick of dark colors!)
Everlane ReNew Fleece Raglan Sweatshirt, Everlane Corduroy Straight Leg Crops, Everlane Modern Loafer
Who says sweatshirts can’t be chic? I love the textural combination of the cords with the fleece knit! Casual and comfy, but polished at the same time! I’m always looking for comfortable outfits that still look like you made an effort, you know? (I also wore this outfit with sneakers the other day!)
Everlane Alpaca Sweater, Everlane Corduroy Straight Leg Crops, Everlane Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer, Everlane Editor Heel
Same monochromatic top + bottom from above–but with a swap of shoes, and the addition of the blazer, it becomes perfect for the office. Pretty neat trick, huh? ?
A bright and fresh twist on a fall outfit–I love the lighter boots with the lighter sweater against the pretty orangey-brown of the cords! Again, you’ve got different textures going, and the little specks in the sweater knit almost create a “pattern”-like quality–resulting in a fun outfit combination! This is something I’d wear everywhere from shopping on a Saturday to dinner, to the office!
Everlane Cashmere Square Turtleneck, Everlane Wide Leg Crop Pant, Everlane Glove Boot ReKnit, old scarf
Same sweater, totally different look! This time, I swapped the pants for the wide-leg crops–I get a lot of questions on how to style these, so I definitely wanted to include a few looks styling them! I love this brown color–it’s so perfect for fall and goes with everything! It’s really easy to dress them up and down, and they look ESPECIALLY great with a sock bootie! This is a great, polished look you can wear anywhere!
Everlane Wide Leg Crop Pant, Everlane Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer, Everlane Air Oversized Crew Tee, Everlane Glove Boot ReKnit
THIS TEE! I love it SO much! Such a great layer to go under a blazer (or a cardigan, or pretty much anything!) Originally, I didn’t think that an oversized blazer would work with wide leg pants, but I feel like it results in a really fashionable chic seventies college professor vibe ?but the addition of the sock bootie still keeps it modern and on-trend!
My favorite sweater again, this time, with a button-down underneath! Layering a button-down underneath a sweater or sweatshirt is one of my best tips for dressing up something that is a bit more on the casual side! (This outfit would totally look great with jeans or their straight leg crops as well!)
Okay, remember the blazer with wide leg crops look above? Just swap your base layer and shoes–and you’ve got a look that is sharp and chic for a business meeting! It’s hard to feel on-trend when you work in a more formal office environment, and this outfit formula is the perfect way to do this!
Ever thought of wearing JUST a blazer as a top? I LOVE the sexy 80’s vibe it gives off–you could also layer a camisole underneath if it’s a little to much skin for you!
I cannot get enough of this sweater! I think it’s one of my favorite sweaters they’ve ever released. It’s just SO. SOFT. And the texture and color on it just makes any outfit you pair it with extra special. In particular, I love the contrast of the sweater with the color of these jeans–and I think the addition of the ecru boot really takes the look up a notch!
Everlane ReNew Fleece Raglan Sweatshirt, Everlane 90’s Cheeky Straight Jean, Everlane Modern Loafer, old scarf
Back to my old tricks again–this time, layering the white button-down under the most casual item in this month’s line-up: the fleece sweatshirt! If you’ve been wondering how to sneakily wear a sweatshirt to work–et voila. There you have it. But this isn’t just a “casual work” look–I’d wear this anywhere, especially on a weekend, Sunday dinner at Neal’s parent’s house, anywhere that calls for cute and cozy.
