EVERLANE: The Best T-Shirts

There's nothing like the perfect t-shirt...



I love a soft, comfy t-shirt, but they are surprisingly hard to find.  I recently heard about the company Everlane, which offers t-shirts and bags at amazing prices.  They use high-end quality cottons and rayons so their shirts are so soft and smooth.  By cutting out the middle man (retail stores), they are able to offer their shirts for way cheaper.  Think a $50 tee for $15.  You can really feel the quality in the shirts and the materials they use are the same that designers use.




I've purchased the classic tee and the Ryan pocket tee and they are both wonderful.  I'm super partial to the Ryan-- it is ridiculously soft and cut in a way that is comfy and slouchy, but still nice.  It is hard not to wear them every day.  They are cut roomy, so I bought my normal size and it fits nicely.  Loose across the stomach (post-baby LOVE), but hits where it is suppose to in the shoulders and arms.  I'm dying to try the long sleeve and tank in the Ryan collection as well.  The Ryan collection comes in a rayon, which is, like, one of the softest knits ever (second, in my opinion, to modal).  It says they need to be dry cleaned, but I think you could get away with just washing them on delicate.  Go ahead and wash them normally, but they are likely to pill quicker.


The Ryan pocket tee looks great partially tucked into skinny jeans, but I'm also planning on wearing it with bootcut pants, heels, a blazer, and edgier jewelry for a slightly dressed up look.  I'm also picturing it being great with a wool mini, slippers, and a crossbody bag for a daytime look. 

Left Outfit: Everlane Ryan Pocket Tee in Charcoal, Gold Statement Necklace (Mikkat Market),
Party Box Bag with Chains (Zara), Leather High Heeled Court Shoe (Zara), Blazer with Gold Buttons (Zara), Stovepipe Trousers in Wool Flannel in Black (JCrew).
Right Outfit: Classic Mini in Felted Wool Mini in Ivory (JCrew), Day Dreaming Flats, Iron Red/Black (Joie), Plumed Luster Bracelet (Anthropologie)Legacy Leather Penny Shoulder Purse, Carnelian (Coach), Everlane Ryan Pocket Tee in White



The classic tee is just that-- a classic and you can't go wrong.  The classic tee is made in a combed cotton, so it isn't scratchy like a regular 100% cotton tee (like Fruit of the Loom).  These are the t-shirts that ever closet needs.  They are basic, nicely made, and can be worn infinite ways.



Everlane also offers two really stylish bags that I'm coveting.  Their weekender is basic, chic, unisex, and practical.  The snap backpack is on trend and a great alternative to a large tote during the day or weekend outings.  Their men's collection is also nice and would be a good alternative if you wanted an oversized fit.
