Sometimes you just stumble upon something amazing on the Internet that inspires and captivates you. I was reading an article about the ignorance of ethical fashion and the author had a list of ethically produced (and stylish!) retailers. I recognized a name on this list and was immediately intrigued to finally give their site a look: Everlane. I knew they had a minimalistic style from some images I had seen on Pinterest, but knew nothing more. I browsed through their website on my phone and fell in love with their design aesthetic.
I admire their mission statement of “always ask why”. They make it a point to have a great relationship with their factories and they put an emphasis on quality. Something that caught my attention about their business is that, in every product description, they present the markup and the true production costs so you know what you’re paying for. They don’t have any stores (it’s online only) so they can eliminate middle-men costs, making luxury clothes available for small budgets.
Minimalist basics are becoming staples in every wardrobe and Everlane has some great options for lesser costs. Side note: yes, some of their clothes seem pricy, but the quality of their materials is the same as that of higher designer clothes that cost much more. In the end, it’s a steal and every piece is versatile and timeless.
Here are some of my favorite pieces:
1. The Swing Trench in Sage // 2. The Everlane Anorak in Midnight // 3. The Cashmere Sweater Dress in Charcoal // 4. The Habotai Silk Short Sleeve in Grey // 5. The Silk Sleeveless in Blush // 6. The Wool Ribbed Long Sleeve in Heather Grey
Be sure to check out the rest of their beautiful clothing on their website. What do you think of Everlane? Let me know!
