Everlane Seed Stitch Raglan and Leather Sleeves

It seems every time I try something from Everlane, it’s green. They just make the most beautiful deep greens, I can’t help myself! Here we have the Seed Stitch Raglan sweater in Pine (size xs if you’re curious), which is perfect for those days when you just want to throw on something comfy and slouchy. The texture is waffled which adds interest, and the raglan sleeves means there’s no shoulder seams to worry about, which is great if you’re like me and worry about drooping shoulders. I love that it’s 100% merino wool, and look forward to layering it under navy and grey coats/blazers as the temperatures drop. Dark green is quickly becoming my go-to color companion to fall and winter neutrals.

But, it’s not chilly enough to layer just yet, so I tried something a little different to add interest to the look by way of these leather sleeves from Marissa Webb (I’m wearing the “short”). I love the idea of just slipping on your own leather sleeve, and making it look as if it’s an extension of your sweater or jacket. Not to mention a great way to completely change up the look of those outerwear pieces that get worn over and over again in heavy rotation during cold temps. Slip ’em on, scrunch ’em up, and you’re good to go!

  • I love your jeans. Thanks for featuring them. I was lucky and found the same style in a darker wash at TJ Maxx. I got them, but I wasn’t sure about them. For some reason I’m usually reluctant to wear a crop style meant for a taller person that makes the pants the right full length for me. Seeing you wear these jeans convinced me to keep them. They look great and don’t look like they’re cropped. I need to learn to value finds like this – zip bottom jeans without alterations!

    • Great find, Laura! I too am usually skeptical of crop jeans. Since they are meant to fit at a taller person’s calf and not the ankle, the bottom opening is usually wider, so on shorties they fit more like a straight leg jean vs. a skinny jean. These however, are perfect! Yet another reason why I am a Rag & Bone fangirl. =)

    • Hi Sharon! Some Rag & Bone styles come in a cropped length (like the ones I’m wearing here), or just a shorter length in general. I have a few with 29″ inseams that scrunch just a little at the ankle, but not so much that they need hemming. Others that are too long I either wear rolled above the ankle, or get hemmed.

  • My gosh those leather sleeves are the coolest idea! I actually have some elbow black leather gloves and wondered when the fingers get all scruffed up, it’s a waste to throw the gloves away. Now I have an idea to cut the hands off and turn them into sleeves like yours! Yay!

  • Owkay, I’m falling in love with your blog! You have a fantastic taste!
    And indeed… Those sleeves are a great DIY idea! Maybe when I have the time :)
