Hi guys! So today I'll be reviewing Everlane's square silk shirt. You know from my last reviews of Everlane silk shirts here and here, and my general comparison review of Everlane, Equipment and Cuyana silk shirts, that I'm a fan of Everlane's silk tops. And I think their newest square silk shirt is their best silk shirt so far because I really love how fresh the shape is. First a word on sizing since Everlane just changed it up by going from S/M/L to actual number sizing (and just when I was beginning to think I figured out how their sizing worked). Anyway I'm usually a size S for Everlane but a size 4 on top for other brands. And since this is an oversized shirt but I don't like my tops to be too baggy, I took an educated guess and went with a size 2. And to me, I thought this size worked out pretty well (for the white/grey I might size up to a 4 because of the sheerness but for the darker colors I think I would stick with a 2).
I got the square silk in the white/grey combo because I thought it would look great for the upcoming spring weather. I think the sleeves are a great length and the overall cut of the shirt is super flattering (even when tucked in).
Also I liked that the white/grey shirt had the different bands of silk so it helped break up the blockiness (which isn't as noticeable on the black and navy--sorry not even considering pink, its not really my color)
But in the end I didn't quite love it because it really was quite sheer (but if you want that black bra, cool silk top combo this is definitely your shirt). If I were to rebuy this silk square shirt again I would go with the navy. But actually I'm rethinking my whole silk shirt strategy as it is, since dry cleaning is no longer an expense I want to pay (both in dollars and in the environmental sense), nor am I a person to really spend my time hand-washing items regularly, no matter how great it looks or wears. Sooo lately all I've been wearing are cotton shirts, sweaters and jeans to work (one of the perks of working for yourself). It's like my college wardrobe all over again except this time I'm wearing Everlane cotton shirts (just bought another U-neck shirt in heather grey the other day) and Everlane cashmere sweaters, so totally an upgrade.
