*This is an unsponsored Everlane review
I've already reviewed the canvas backpack (here) from Everlane's Beach Capsule, and this beach pullover hoodie is the second item I purchased from that collection. I was drawn to the thin stripes and the cropped length, even though its the dead of summer and 90 degrees. I could see myself wearing this in the fall when the weather cools down or if I actually went to a California beach, which are usually windy as heck.
What do you think?
I paired it with a skirt, but the hoodie looks pretty cute with shorts too. At times I feel like the boxy cut isn't doing my short figure any favors. But I still like the casual look. I'm wearing a size small here and found it large enough because of the oversized fit. But I did find the neck hole to be quite tight (and it was a bit of a pain to get it on and off without smearing my makeup all over the inside of the hoodie).
The cotton material itself is not super soft nor stretchy. I think if it's thrown into the dryer there's a chance it'll stretch out due to it's lack of elasticity (so I'll probably be hang drying this one as well as washing it on a delicate cycle in a mesh bag like this one). Now that I think of it, the material is very similar what Everlane used for their Breton striped oversized tee, but the cotton of this hoodie feels a tad thinner. For $38 this is a pretty good price for cotton hoodie, but the true test will be how it holds up after multiple washes. Since I'm planning to keep this one, I'll update the post later with what I find.
