Winter Inspired Looks with the Everlane E1 Capsule Collection, Marni & J.Crew

December 17, 2015

 I have a thing for sleeves with a dramatic shape. Think Thom Browne's Fall 2014 Collection or "leg- of-mutton" sleeves worn by Queen Elizabeth I..."Renaissance chic", if you will...

Anyway, when the Everlane E1 Capsule collection launched, I noticed that two of the pieces appeared to have my favorite leg-of-mutton-inspired sleeve shape (in a more subtle version). Needless to say, I bought these two items (the cashmere mockneck and the structured crop) the day the collection launched.

Another fun addition to the wardrobe is a Marni clutch/bag, which was acquired on a fun trip to Woodbury Commons with Simon Malls. I had never been to Woodbury Commons before, but will be sure to return as they have some of my favorite shops there (Céline, Chloé, Marni etc). It has removable straps so I've already used it as an everyday cross body, and as an evening clutch. It's trés versatile!

The Everlane E1 Structured Crop is a substantial mix of Italian wool, with a touch of cashmere, and has a hidden zipper on the right (pictured in the last image). I absolutely love this detail and how it can change the shape of the top by unzipping it a tad or keeping it fully zipped. Such subtle and smart details are what I love in a piece of clothing. Lastly, this J.Crew midi sweater skirt is a great skirt for winter and can be worn with almost anything. I have pretty much been wearing it with everything since I got it two weeks ago. 

details: Look 1, Everlane E1 Cashmere Mockneck / Acne jeans / Marni clutch (similar in black); Look 2, Everlane E1 Structured Crop / J.Crew skirt / Chloé shoes circa 2007 (no longer sold but here is a similar pair!) / Marni clutch
