I have always aspired to be that girl who looks effortlessly put together in just a t-shirt and jeans but it isn’t as easy as it looks when not all t-shirts are created equal.
Because I have a bigger bust many, many t-shirts just don’t work on me. The fabric pulls or stretches out or the t-shirt gives up after a few washes. Finding a t-shirt that actually looks good on and stands up to wear seems to always be a bit of searching for a needle in a haystack. I was so excited to see that Everlane was introducing new affordable, certified organic t-shirts. They’re ethically made, transparently priced and made from entirely clean cotton. What does that mean exactly? Everlane set out two years ago to find a cotton maker that would meet their factory standards of paying their workers fair wages while also using clean water and removing all pesticides from the production process. Today I’m styling this new Organic Cotton Box Cut t-shirt two ways. (And, fun fact: The first ever item I ever owned from Everlane was a t-shirt when I first shopped the brand back when they launched in 2012!
The first look is about spotlighting the new Everlane drape trench. I love trench coats but I didn’t have one that works great for more casual looks or for packing when traveling. I love the slouchy silhouette on this one and the perfect stone color. It’s the perfect mix of classic (hello double-breasted buttons and an exaggerated collar) and casual (hello, slightly oversized fit). I paired it with a favorite pair of straight jeans – the Cheeky Straight Jeans – which happen to be a best-seller for the brand. They’re so comfortable and easy to dress up with the right shoe like the new Editor Slingback heels.These heels are made for walking and you know how much I love a slingback. I feel like these heels will just get better and better with time.
For the second look featuring the organic cotton box tee, I went for a classic look of mine: blazer + tee + jeans + a comfy shoe. This is an everyday outfit for me pretty much year round. You know how much I love Everlane’s blazers so I was of course excited to see they were launching a more laid back, casual everyday blazer. Meet the Soft Boss Blazer which officially comes out next week on March 30th. So comfy and casual while still being put together. On bottom I’m wearing their Kick Crop jean which is a favorite jean style for me to pair with mules. I’m such a fan of Everlane’s loafer-style shoes so no doubt jumped to try their new Day Loafer Mules which feel like wearing slippers if I’m being honest. Buttery soft leather and a cushion-y sole you’ll be chic yet comfortable all day in these. There are five color ways, too from which to choose!
You can find all of the brand’s new arrivals here and as mentioned, until Friday night they are offering 25% off sitewide! At the bottom of this post I link some of my other Everlane favorites if you’re looking for some guidance.
