Everlane Drapey Square Shirt Review

Everlane Drapey Square Shirt Review

Before diving into all things sweaters and fall, I was intrigued by Everlane’s newest Drapey Square Shirt, an oversized button-down shirt made of Tencel. I’ve had good experiences so far with the items I’ve made from Tencel (see my Pietra Pants pattern review). It’s a flowy material that still has a bit of heft while still breathable for warmer weather. I also find it more carefree than silk, so I’m likely to reach for it more often.

Unsurprisingly, I decided to try this in the Bone color which is a neutral cream. It’s hard to tell in the online photos, but this has warm, blush undertones. I’m wearing an XS, as I didn’t want this to be extra oversized – normally, I’m a S in other Everlane tops like their tees and sweaters.

After trying it a few different ways, I prefer layering it over a tank and wearing it unbuttoned. The Bone color is slightly sheer, which is worth noting if you don’t like the look of a visible tank / layer underneath. I don’t mind this, so I don’t see that as a negative.

The drop shoulder style that is so popular now can be a bit hit or miss for me. I’m more rectangular in shape with slightly broad shoulders, and a drop shoulder tends to make me look more topheavy. Not the case here however, given the drape of the material.

A small downside: the material does wrinkle easily, which you can see in the back view photo. This doesn’t bother me, however; comparable silk and linen tops can do the same.

Overall, this is a luxurious top that can pair easily with both casual and professional outfits. And major bonus points for being machine washable!
