It’s actually fall in the suburbs of Atlanta! And cashmere weather. Sort of.
I ordered the Everlane Cashmere tunic and v-neck slouchy sweater last week, but had them sent to my mom’s house since I would be here this week. I wore the slouchy v-neck sweater on Saturday after I arrived and was sort of cold in my straight-from-Texas short-sleeve shirt and cardigan, and then the tunic yesterday all day. I was sort of dying from sitting out in the sun at my nephew’s lacrosse game in the afternoon (he won!), but the rest of the day I was fine.
I like both pieces (both are medium), but I think I love the v-neck sweater better. It is REALLY good. The medium just sort of falls nicely on me, but it doesn’t look too oversized. The sleeves are long on me, but that’s normal…sleeves are always long on me. Love the v-neck. I like the slouchy styles much better than the crew neck I got last year.
A note on the cashmere: I do find it a little itchy when I first put it on (I mentioned the same last year), but after some wear, I don’t notice it at all. I think it softens up a bit? It’s mid-weight cashmere, so it seems heavier than most James Perse cashmere and a little lighter than most of my Inhabit pieces.
The tunic stretched with wear, but on me it was definitely not “loose” fitting, as the description on Everlane’s site states. If I wanted it to be very loose, I would have gotten a large, but I didn’t want that – the sleeves would have been crazy long, and I wanted it to be more like a tunic and less like a dress. But if you’d rather have it be more like a dress, maybe size up?
Overall, I’m quite pleased with the new cashmere styles, especially the slouchy v-neck. And now I’m waiting on the chunky wool to launch on November 3rd, or November 2nd (my birthday!!) if you’re on the waitlist. There’s going to be a cardigan!!
Did anyone get one of the new cashmere tunics or sweaters from Everlane last week? What did you think?
