I Tried Three Different Styles of Everlane Jeans
Nine months ago, I reviewed my first pair of Everlane Jeans after being intrigued by all the buzz the #damngooddenim release was generating. While I still wear them (often), I’ve ended up purchasing two other pairs to fill very different uses in my wardrobe. While they all boast an extremely affordable price tag of $68, I find the three of them to be pretty unique from each other.
For sizing context, I am 5’8” 140 lbs and tend to have issues with jeans being too tight on my thighs/booty and too loose on my waist. Everlane jeans, however, don’t give me this problem which makes me a fan forever.
The High Rise Skinny | My first lovE
Since I’ve already given this pair a full review, I’ll keep this brief. These are my go-to good ‘ole everyday jeans, and even after having them for 9 months the love burns strong. They do stretch out with wear, so I find that I need to wash them about every 4-5 wears to shrink them back up a bit. They seem to run slightly large, so I am wearing a 27 instead of my usual 28. I find myself wearing these cuffed 90% of the time from a styling preference, but when they’re not cuffed, they hit the top part of my ankle. While they’re called “high rise,” they’re actually the lowest rise of the three pairs I’ve compared in this post. They still sit nice and high, but the other two pairs hit my natural waist a little more accurately.
The Cheeky Ankle Jean | Fun Summer Crush
During the summer, the Cheeky Straight Ankle Jean caught my eye and I decided to add them to my wardrobe for a more casual warm-weather option. They have a slightly higher waist (just 1/2” higher, but that makes a big difference) than the High Rise Skinny which I was drawn to. My one complaint about this pair is that the front pockets always seem to bunch up and show a little bit of the white inner lining when I’m walking, it’s a small detail but it bugs me. I think I’m going to put a stitch on the pocket to keep it down. These fit the same as the High Rise Skinny as far as sizing, so I bought a 27 since they loosen a bit with wear.
The Authentic Stretch High Rise Skinny | Tall, Dark and Handsome
Two months ago, I added my third (and probably final) pair of denim to my tiny closet. The Authentic Stretch High Rise Skinny. I was instantly impressed. They are as comfortable as can be and make my legs look longer than they are. I want to note that when I first received these, I had just returned from a trip and was about 10 lbs thinner than usual. The jeans (size 27) fit like a glove then, and they still fit like a glove now that I’ve returned to my usual size. A true testament to why stretchy denim is such a WIN. They have the same high waist as the Cheeky Straight Jean and hit me right at the base of my ankle. Stretchy but sturdy. Not too long, not too short, just right.
Overall, the quality for the price is pretty tough to beat. I love all three of these pairs for different reasons, but if I had to pick just one to wear forever, the Stretchy High Rise currently have captured my heart. I would try them in a lighter color in addition to black, but a fourth pair of jeans feels a little excessive to me so I’ll wait until one of my other pairs wears out… which at this rate will take years since they’re holding up so well! Well done, Everlane. Again.
