Remember when most of my blog posts were just a single outfit? These days, those posts almost seem like a copout, but they sure were a lot faster to write!
This is an outfit I wore last week. I met Alison to get a few pictures before I went on with my day, so I thought I’d share them here and use the opportunity to review the Everlane Renew Anorak.
This is a great little spring jacket, or you can probably wear it right now if you live in an area with mild winters… especially where it tends to rain a lot.
It gets dozens of 5-star ratings, and for good reason! It really does check all the boxes when it comes to a rain-repellant jacket. For starters, the Everlane ReNew collection uses all recycled materials, and each anorak recycles the equivalent of 14 plastic water bottles.
It’s nice and roomy but it doesn’t look overwhelming on, either. You can cinch the waist, as I did here, if you want a more fitted appearance.
It has a high-low dolphin hem and a two-way zip front with snap closure, and I especially like the shape of the hood. It was drizzling the day I wore it, and I like how the hood covers my entire head and shields my face without flopping over into my eyes… you know what I mean?
You can wear it with the collar turned down, or pull it up for extra protection from the elements. It also has two large patch pockets on the front with a fold-over flap, to keep the rain out when not in use.
The Everlane ReNew Anorak retails for $128, and it comes in sizes XXS – XL; I’m wearing the Small. It runs a little big, with a generous fit, but I wouldn’t size down. I like the roominess, and it’s nice for layering purposes.
Color choices usually change with the seasons. It’s currently available in Black, Turmeric, and the Bay Leaf that I’m wearing here.
Underneath, I’m wearing a simple all-black outfit I pulled together with some old and new wardrobe favorites. The ribbed-v-neck cashmere sweater is an oldie but goodie; unfortunately it is no longer available.
These jeans are the Paige Cindy in Black Lotus, a slim straight ankle jean in a rich black wash with a raw hem, and I wore the Tory Burch Chelsea boots since it was a messy weather day. They aren’t exactly waterproof, but they can withstand a little bit of rain.
I’m working on a more comprehensive roundup of spring jackets, but I wanted to tell you about the Everlane ReNew Anorak while Everlane is running a sale. You get 20% off a $250 purchase, or 30% of $375. Because the anorak alone doesn’t qualify for a discount, I rounded up some more transition styles from Everlane below.
