5 Everlane Basics You Forgot About

Everlane is my go to spot for when I can’t find something secondhand. They really nail basics and I get the most wear out of anything I buy from them. I’ve been shopping at Everlane for years, I love that they offer affordable quality clothing that is sustainably made!

Everlane does comes out with new pieces every month, a personal favorite is the Alpaca Crew. But I think a lot of their basics get overlooked. It seems most of our closets are missing these very basics that are the silent heroes of our wardrobe.

We tend to buy what excites us and overlook the tried and true basics that pull our whole wardrobe together. I’ve been loving the 90s and I think fashion then was all about quality basics! Good denim + simple colors + classic shapes.

Denim Jackets

Wear it as a Canadian tuxedo, with a skirt, or a floral dress with docs. This is one of those pieces that literally goes with E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G

I personally prefer the cropped version, I find cropped things tend to make my 5ft frame look taller! This jacket is available in a light and dark wash, I personally just ordered the light wash. I’m hoping to wear it with my dresses on cooler spring days! Priced at $78.

Not into the cropped look?

Everlane also makes a denim jacket in a regular cut that you could even size up and go for that baggy look. They have a wider range of colors including light denim, dark denim, vintage dark denim (more deep blue), washed black, black, and white. Priced at $88

Everlane white tee

Basic White Tee

Another severely under valued basic. Everlane has a few different versions on this basic. A personal fav is their Pima Micro Rib Crew. I like it when the sleeves are fitted vs. loose. This tee is priced at $30 and on the higher end but they also have a great traditional shaped tee called the Cotton Box Cut thats an affordable $18.

Everlane short surplus green


I had their shorts in and out of my cart for over a year before finally getting them. They are basically the wide leg crop in a shorts version and I honestly think these do not get enough attention! I bought them right before my cruise this past January and I LOVE them! Perfect rise, good pockets, structured fit. Worth every bit of $48 bucks! I might snag the surplus green for spring.


I’ve had the Everlane backpack for almost 4 years and it has become a traveling staple. My husband uses is as an everyday bag for his gym clothes and other things he needs (okay its his purse, or murse?). When we travel we use it for our computer and zero waste supplies.

When were are vacationing it has worked for beach trips, hiking, exploring a city via bike! You name it! We love the different pockets, quality, and size and plan on keeping for longgg time! Priced at $68.


Yes, underwear! Everlane hyped up the launch but I feel like most don’t remember that they sell some very affordable underwear. My personal favorite is the high-rise hipster which is available at 3 for $27. They come in sizes XXS-XL
