Basics By Everlane

I’m always on the hunt to find a good basic (read: plain) clothing that can work with my wardrobe for any occasion. I’m a huge t-shirt fan. I’m pretty casual and don’t like to get too dressed up. Nothing spells classic like a perfect white tee to me. Besides everyday life, basics are very good for travel. You can always dress up shirts and look more pulled together with a blazer or a jacket or even a scarf. I always pack a handful of tees when I travel. I always pack black and white shirts and if I’ve got other colors, then I’ll pack those too.

I came across the brand Everlane from reading some style blogs. They are a basics brand label based in San Francisco that only sells online. They cut out the middleman and this makes their clothing and accessories more affordable. I used to buy James Perse shirts. They are amazing, last forever but then again cost $50. I bought a black James Perse v-neck on my RTW trip. That’s 19 months of wearing the same black v-neck week in and week out. I’m serious. When you break down the cost, $50 isn’t much. But can I find a shirt of equivalent style that will cost less? So I decided to give Everlane a shot.

So far, so good. I ordered the short sleeve sweatshirt, the slouchy pocket tee, a black u neck, a white v neck. I’ll tell you how the others go. I’ll tell you how they go but if you want to order them and try them out too, here’s a link.

    I’m about to order the U-neck tee myself and was wondering if I’d be a size S or M in this top. I’m usually somewhere in
    between, a Medium Petite or 8 Petite to be exact. 34D bust, short
    torso, 27-28″ waist. I worry the size small might be too tight in the
    chest/waist areas, but I don’t want the medium to be too long in the
    front or back, or too low cut. What size did you get (in the pictures shown above)? Was hoping to gage my decision based on others’ sizes they got and how it fits relatively.


    • Hey Sarah!! I started out with a medium U neck because I love loose tees but have just ordered another and bought the small instead. I’m about 5’1″ with short torso and B bust. I always find shirts shrink up but this shirt is not one of those long tees at all. Hope that helps!!
