Everlane Women’s U-Neck | Alexander Wang Rocco bag | J. Crew Oval Plate bracelet | Frame Denim | Banana Republic Flats
Lately all I ever want to wear is my Everlane U-Neck tee. I know it sounds strange, but when I look into my closet everything else feels annoyingly fussy, unflattering, and hard to style. Does this mean that I’ve adopted a super-chic, minimalist, city-girl style? Or that I’ve given up a la a soccer mom living in sweats? Place your vote in the comments.
All kidding aside, I think it’s due in large part to the fact that I wear scrubs every day and have completely forgotten how to dress myself. Style is like a muscle, and mine is sorely underused…I just want to buy ten Everlane tees and wear them every time I go out. I mean hey, as long as I pair my tee with skinny jeans, cute flats, and a great bag, I should be good to go, right?
The U-Neck tee really is the best t-shirt in the world, I have to say. I’ve got it in white and black and I’ve found myself reaching for the black most often. The u-neck shows just the perfect amount of skin and I find it more flattering than a v-neck. The fabric is not see-through (even on the white), yet it’s still lightweight. The best thing about it though, is the fit. Whereas most t-shirts are a little clingy at the bottom, this one is somewhat loose at the bottom, and I’ve found that this makes all the difference in getting that slouchy, flattering, slightly unkempt look. I used to think J. Crew’s vintage cotton tees were best, but they’ve now been ousted by the Everlane U-Neck. My hope is that they’ll put out a charcoal gray version, but in the meantime I might have to spring for the navy. Oh and did I mention that the thing costs SIXTEEN DOLLARS? That’s what a tee shirt should cost! Not $40 and not $100. Thank you, Everlane!
