It’s little secret that one of my most worn – and most loved – brands in my wardrobe is Everlane. And like many of you, I’ve spent three-quarters of the year working from home, so naturally their pieces have featured heavily in my outfits this year as I’ve embraced relaxed ensembles for my 9-to-5. It’s one of the few brands that I’ve relied upon for quality and fit, and I’ve found the pieces have seamlessly worked with my wardrobe staples because of the overall minimal aesthetic of the brand.
So I thought I’d round up my Everlane favourites of 2020 and share why these ten pieces have stood out from the rest.
If I had to recommend one thing from Everlane, it would, without a doubt, be one of their cashmere knits. Along with their shoes, it’s what got me hooked on the brand. Their cashmere comes in a wide range of styles and colours that are both relaxed for work but do double duty on the weekends too. I’ve featured their cashmere (and all the styles I have) in this comprehensive post, but if I had to pick just the one sweater, the cashmere square turtleneck would be at the top of my list. It strikes the perfect balance between relaxed and polished with a mock-neck that is very sophisticated.
#2 – White Jeans (from their curvy range)
Next up on my list of Everlane favourites of 2020, is this pair of white jeans from their curvy range. Before this pair, I wasn’t brave enough to even consider white jeans! I’m pretty clumsy, I love my tomato-based pasta sauces and I have young boys with perpetually sticky hands! That said, their straight leg white jeans have been incredibly popular and when they released them in a new curvy cut earlier this year, pear-shaped me had to try them out for myself. I’m so glad I did – they haven’t disappointed and have been one of my most worn pairs for the year. As you would have gleaned from my Instagram feed, I’ve embraced white denim year round and I’ve loved how they’ve freshened up my Autumn/Winter ensembles even on the dreariest of days.

There might be a lot of parkas and practical jackets out there, but this one stands out from the rest because it’s made of 100% recycled fabric (derived from 55 recycled plastic bottles!) and the insulated filling is also 100% recycled too.
It’s a practical piece with its fleece-lined pockets, internal sleeve cuffs and snorkel hood, but form is also a priority as it comes in a great array of colours (navy is my favourite… obviously!), you can also cinch your jacket in at the waist to accentuate your silhouette and it looks overall really smart and sophisticated. I can’t wait to wear this jacket once the weather cools down again.
You know you’re onto a good thing when you have the same pair of shoes in two different materials right?! I’ve got these flats in both versions – the leather and the ReKnit fabric. Given the amount of wear I managed to get out of the shoes this year, I’ve written comprehensive reviews on each (see my leather version review and my ReKnit version review) and I’m buoyed to hear from many of you who have bought these on my recommendation, that you feel the same way too!

These western-style boots are a delight – premium quality leather, comfortable to walk in, and the light tan shade is delightfully warm. They feature a tapered square toe, an angled heel, an elastic back with a back tab to pull them on and off easily. They are an incredible dupe for Isabel Marant’s Dicker Boots (which are thrice the price!) and if anything, I consider the leather used on Everlane’s version to be more premium quality. You can read my comprehensive review of the boots here.

This silk shirt has been one of my favourite wardrobe staples for the year, seamlessly straddling both my work and weekend wardrobe. The silk is lightweight and luxurious and the silhouette is a versatile relaxed cut which looks great worn tucked or untucked. You can read my comprehensive review of the shirt here, which I have in the blue and white stripe version. While it’s more of a relaxed cut, it has all the features you’d expect of a classic silk shirt – ie. traditional point collar, front button placket. For a great value silk shirt, it’s hard to go past this one. It has been a workhorse in my wardrobe and right up there at the top of my Everlane favourites of 2020.
Considering how much I love my ReKnit flats, I knew boots made out of the magical fabric would be a guaranteed winner. And I wasn’t wrong! These are a pointed style boot, with matching leather trim and a walkable block mid-heel. I’ll take height wherever I can get it, but these are a stand out to me because they are, hands down, the comfiest heeled boots I own.
I have these in both black and khaki and I feel justified in having both colours in the same style as I find the black version is great for more dressier looks while the khaki version is a softer and more relaxed tone. You can read my comprehensive review of the boots here.
As a lover of muted tones, this coat makes a bit of a statement! The toffee tone is a tad sharper than what you would normally see on me but I’ve enjoyed branching out and adding a bit of fun to my winter ensembles. Not only is this a well made and beautifully designed, it’s made from recycled wool. I’ve shared a review and the ways I’ve enjoyed styling this coat in this dedicated blog post here.
When it comes to closet chameleons, it’s hard to go past a knit dress in a neutral tone. While the styles can be simple, its versatility comes in spades. This particular dress has been a favourite of mine as it’s great for work (worn belted and under a blazer) but it’s also a comfy option on the weekends when I’m chasing after the kids. The cashmere wool is so lovely and adds a bit of luxe to what is an everyday staple. While it’s a simple design, it’s a piece that always feels like a treat to wear and earns its place on my list of Everlane favourites of 2020.
With my petite frame, it’s almost impossible to wear pants off-the-rack without having them hemmed. Magically, this pair is the exception. The pants are designed to be cropped on taller folk, but on my frame, they look like a stylish pair of full-length trousers. The wide-leg style makes these a laid back piece, and there’s a bit of stretch making these a comfortable option. I’ve got these pants in both the bone (pictured below) and black.
And that’s a wrap on my Everlane favourites of 2020!
