Spring is on its way, and after one of the coldest winters I can remember LA having in a long time, I’m looking forward to transitioning my wardrobe from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer. As much as I have really enjoyed actually getting use out of my sweaters this season, I’m so ready for a change and I’m sure my sweaters could use a break. I was so excited to pull out this old favorite graphic tee to pair with a new piece in my wardrobe, the Everlane Chore Jacket.
Everlane kindly gifted me the Chore Jacket to review back in early February, and it has been such an easy piece to integrate into my wardrobe. Like I said in my February Closet Update, I had been on the hunt for a black denim jacket for a while now. The addition of this chore jacket though eliminates that need, and I like that it’s a bit different from the other jackets I have in my wardrobe: 2 denim jackets, 1 leather jacket, and 1 army green jacket.
Priced at $68 and made with 100% cotton, this piece, like every Everlane piece I own, is really well made. Though it does attract fluff and lint easily (especially when I wear sweaters underneath), I do think that this will be the perfect throw on jacket over tees, tanks, and dresses come these upcoming warmer months. The huge pockets are one of my favorite features of this jacket. There’s three in the front and one on the inside (which always makes me feel super cool and secretive). They’ve been great for teaching as I’m constantly needing to carry around pens, post-it notes, band-aids, and confiscated toys.
COMFORT & FIT
I absolutely adore the boxy fit of this jacket. I went with my normal size, and it is still able to be layered over some of my chunkiest sweaters, like my Everlane Cashmere Rib Round Crew, comfortably. I think its boxiness also adds to the comfort level. It’s an incredibly light jacket that it makes me forget that I’m wearing an outer layer sometimes. I predict that this jacket is going to as the sun’s rays and warmth return to Los Angeles.
This piece has fit in easily with the rest of my wardrobe. Because it’s black, I feel like I’m able to create looks that I hadn’t been able to before–ones that resemble a pants suit but way more casual and comfortable. I’ve always admired the look of blazers on other girls but knew that I could never pull them off (that and they’re just not my style), so this jacket gives me that smart, workwear look that I’ve been looking for in a jacket without it being a blazer. I have only worn them with jeans and pants so far, but I look forward to trying to styling these with dresses when my bare legs can bask in the sunshine.
