I’ve been a fan of Everlane for quite some time now. You may remember this review of their eco-winter coat collection. I wear that coat nonstop especially to walk Pork. So warm and cozy. I also own several great sweaters from them that I’ve talked about here too. But one thing I hadn’t gotten on board with yet were their jeans.
I tried their 100% cotton jeans a year or two ago and just didn’t love them. I just assumed their jeans didn’t work for me. Instead, I’ve been a die-hard Madewell denim wearer. A few months ago though, Everlane did a denim pop up in Atlanta. You could try on all the styles, washes, and fits. I had no idea they had new styles that had a bit of stretch in them, which I typically prefer.
Everlane Review: Denim Collection
The Curvy Authentic Stretch High-Rise Skinny Jean
These high-rise jeans are an 11 inch rise and are a cotton-poly blend. They’re stretchy, but it’s like a different kind of a stretch since there isn’t elastane or spandex in them. These come in 3 washes and come in ankle or regular, no tall though. They’re the ones featured in the outfit above and I’m doing a 27 ankle.
The Authentic Stretch Mid-Rise Skinny
With a 9.5 inch rise, these are a great everyday jean that isn’t too high or too low. Sitting perfectly at your natural waist too. They come in an ankle-length, regular or tall. I personally did ankle so I could wear ankle booties with them and not need to roll them. These are featured below anad I’m doing a 27 ankle.
The Women’s Curvy Cheeky Straight Jean
This jean is a slightly looser fit since it’s a straight fit. Everlane made this curvy cheeky fit to better accommodate a hip to waist ratio. Nothing is more annoying than a high rise jean that gapes at the waist but is tight on the butt. These fit great. I will say, the first hour or so in your initial wear, the waist is a tad tight for me. But it relaxed perfectly and now they’re SO comfortable. Featured below, I’m in a 27 ankle.
I’m typically a size 26 or 27 at Madewell for reference. For Everlane jeans with stretch, I found the 27 were a better fit. A tad snug, but when denim has stretch in it you want them to be a tad snug. Just not tight/pulling and miserable. I also almost always go for the ankle in these. I am 5’5″ but have shorter legs and find I prefer a shorter jean. It’s also easier to wear booties with them without any issues.
As for ankle (short) or regular, I would say I have short-ish legs and can go either way and be fine. I love having at least a handful of ankle jeans for pairing with ankle booties in the fall to leave that little bit of skin showing and so your jeans don’t bunch. I just so happened to go with the ankle on all of these just by chance. If your jeans are a tad too long, try out this easy hem trick that ALWAYS works.
Both of the jeans I picked up come in several washes. The high-rise curvy only come in three colors, 2 blue washes and one solid black. The mid-rise authentic stretch comes in 6 colors. Lots of different black washes (I have the vintage black and love them) as well as several blue denim washes.
In addition to these two styles that I personally loved, they do have several others. From the button fly version of the high rise, to the cheeky slim relaxed jean and also the wide leg and kick crop. There are lots of options!
Both styles I own are only $68 which I think is a fantastic price for the quality of the denim. I’d say my Madewell jeans feel a touch nicer and have their slimming pocket technology that truly are slimming. But again, at half the price of my Madewells, these do the job! And I just love the ankle length for my 5’5″ short legs and fall bootie needs.
