So. Here’s Everlane’s Capsule v-neck tunic sweater in burgundy, size small. It’s okay, but I don’t like it on me. I don’t like sweater “tunics” anyway, or sweater dresses, because they change shape too much at the bottom with wear, and end up looking odd and stretched out by the end of the day. Also, they’re usually too long on me, as this one is.
The wool is very similar to their chunky wool, although this year’s chunky wool seems to be more tightly woven, and warmer than this sweater. I love the v-neck, and think it sits nicely, and even the dropped shoulders aren’t too bad. And the color is beautiful. But still, it’s too long and narrow at the bottom for my taste. As I mentioned yesterday, I much prefer the shape of the Emerson Fry oversized sweater to this one.
I’m sending this one back to Everlane – and I’m hoping to maybe get one of the new donegal cashmere pieces, or one of the new marled chunky wool collection, a hat perhaps? Wasn’t a huge fan of the luxe double knit pieces. Did anyone pick anything up on Black Friday to support their black friday fund?
Tomorrow, pictures/review of the chunky knit wool cardigan. I promise !!
