I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting for Everlane to come out with denim for what seems like FOREVER! And Hallelujah, Praise the Lord – the day is finally here! And you won’t believe the price – only $68 for a pair of their premium denim! If you’ve ever bought a pair of designer jeans you know that $68 is an amazing price. And I have to tell you, the denim lives up to the hype!
I have the hardest time finding denim that fits perfectly. It’s either too loose or tight in all the wrong spots. And then it bags out over time. But the Everlane denim is super high quality and fits perfectly! And it being Everlane, they also found a way to make the denim in an ethical factory that doesn’t pollute the environment.
I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Everlane Denim Pop Up store in Los Angeles this past weekend. I got a chance to try on a lot of the styles and I’m sharing my thoughts on them below!
The High-Rise styles are my favorite. I feel like they are the most versatile because you can wear shorter tops and crop tops without exposing your belly. Plus they sort of help to “suck” everything in if you know what I mean. This is the regular length but they also come in ankle length. But as you can see, the regular length isn’t super long. I’m 5’8″ and they hit around my ankles. The waist hits around my belly button.
These were the most comfortable pair, in my opinion. I thought the denim was a bit softer than the other washes. And if you’ve been looking for a pair of white jeans that aren’t see through, this is the pair for you. The denim is thick and very opaque.
I also like that the legs on all the skinny jeans aren’t super tight. It’s more of a straight cut.
The High-Rise Skinny also comes in a dark wash, mid wash and black. This black pair is a great if you are looking for denim that you want to wear out at night. The denim is a little bit stiffer than the white wash, in my opinion. But it’s still very comfortable. They are also available in Ankle Length.
The mid rise style is a 9″ rise so it’s only 1 inch lower than the high rise. It fit the same as the high rise styles. This dark wash is also a bit stiffer than the white wash. I really like this dark wash so I decided to get it in the high rise style! Also available in Ankle Length.
The boyfriend style has a more relaxed fit than the other styles. It has a 10″ rise but it’s looser so it sits lower on the waist. I would size down if you want a tighter fit. I tried on the same size as the skinny styles (size 26) and it felt a lot looser around the waist. Even though the boyfriend style is supposed to be looser, if you sized down a size or two it would look closer to a straight leg jean.
Overall, I LOVED the Everlane denim. All the styles fit so well. I’m seriously planning on picking up all the styles eventually (I’m just waiting to lose all the baby weight so I can figure out my true size!). Some of the styles are on backorder or ship a little later. I would advise getting on the waitlists so you can get first dibs when it comes back in stock. These sell out fast!
*UPDATE: I’ve been wearing my Everlane denim for a couple months now and I would suggest sizing down because the denim does loosen up over time. I went with a pair that I almost couldn’t button and now it fits fine. These jeans have a little bit of elastane for stretch but they don’t feel like it. So if you are a fan of stretchy/legging type jeans these are not for you.
