Everlane: Essentials for The Minimalist's Wardrobe

One of the many things I love about Everlane is the sleek, modern style represented in their ethical clothing. Most of their pieces are very versatile and can be dressed up, dressed down, and styled in a variety of ways which is a key aspect of building a conscious closet. Everlane partners with ethical factories around the world to ensure their clothes are crafted to last. Through their ethical practices and emphasis on quality materials Everlane fights for radical transparency in the apparel industry. Recently I tried out two of Everlane’s pieces that have been great additions to my wardrobe. I even took them on our recent trip to Dublin because they were great travel pieces.

An Affordable Ethical Sweater for Spring

Everlane’s Cotton Long Sleeve Crew Sweater is a great transitional piece to have for in between seasons. This sweater is made with 100% cotton which makes this a soft, light weight top. The light weight of this top was perfect for our time in Dublin. The weather was a bit chilly, really windy, and a little rainy which meant I needed a sweater that wasn’t too heavy. The Cotton Long Sleeve Crew Sweater met all my needs for my chilly drizzly Dublin adventures. The boxy fit of this sweater makes this garment even more comfortable and easy to move around in. This sweater comes in a variety of colors and it’s affordable! $50 for an ethical sweater is great. For me, I chose heather grey because I like neutral colors that I can dress up with bold colors. I’m so ready for spring, so I added a brightly colored necklace to add a bit of pop to my sweater. Everlane just released some new springy colors I encourage you to check out.

The Relaxed Button-Down For All Body Types

I am obsessed with the feel and flow of The Clean Silk Relaxed Shirt. Made with 100% clean silk, this shirt is SO soft. Fun fact, Everlane’s clean silk is made without toxic dyes and less energy waste. This button down shirt is a loose fit which I appreciate. 100% real talk. Honestly, as a lady with a larger chest button down shirts can be a challenge, but The Clean Silk Relaxed Shirt really works for me. I think the more relaxed style of the shirt helps prevent buttons from popping open and allows the shirt to fit more flattering on my body type than traditional button downs. This is the first button-up shirt I’ve been able to confidently wear in a while. I’m not one to keep a lot of formal pieces in my wardrobe, so having versatile pieces such as The Clean Silk Relaxed Shirt that can be dressed up for formal occasions is key. I can’t say enough good things about this shirt. I think this piece is truly designed to look good on all body types as it complimented my curves well. Such a practical piece to keep in your closet!

BONUS: This was a great travel piece as it didn’t wrinkle too much in my suitcase! As you can see, a few wrinkles here and there, but for the most part it stayed smooth.
