This is a tease, I know, because the Everlane chunky turtleneck tunic is not available right now (get on the waitlist – I did!), but seriously. It’s really good. Jen mentioned it in a comment on my post about sending back the cardigan I got, and I became intrigued. It had already sold out by then, but I got on the waitlist and managed to get it before Thanksgiving.
First thing – how did I NOT appreciate sleeveless (or at least shorter sleeve) sweaters before now? I have a new found love for them, because they’re PERFECT for adding warmth and layers without bulk under a cardigan or a jacket. BRILLIANT. Honestly, I don’t know how I made it 42 years without understanding this. Never too late, though, I always say.
Second – it is WARM. And soft. I wore this on thanksgiving with jeans over my T by Alexander Wang long sleeve shirt and was nicely warm without overheating from all the PEOPLE. And I managed not to spill anything on myself. Bonus.
Again, though, the real beauty of this sweater is that I can wear it under my camel hair jacket, as seen above, without getting all itchy. (yay!) I’ve also worn it under my black drapey Lululemon cotton/cashmere cardigan, and as I mentioned, over a long-sleeve shirt. I don’t really like the cap-sleeves on me; they’re sort of a weird length, and accentuate my thicker arms, so I don’t wear it as an outer layer as much as I would have if it had been truly sleeveless, but it’s really more practical for me layered underneath anyway.
I’m not totally comfortable wearing this with leggings, although it does sufficiently cover my ass. But just barely. I’d wear it with my SoLow skirted leggings or if I add a longer layer underneath it, but for me, it’s not QUITE long enough to wear with leggings comfortably. It’s probably my ass…it sticks out a little 😉 It wouldn’t hurt to size up if you do want it to be a little longer, I don’t think it would come off as TOO big.
I know some of you guys bought this as well, what do you think? how do you wear it?
