This post is sponsored by Everlane and all Everlane items I’m featuring in this post were gifted. When it comes to brands I’m proud to work with, Everlane is at the very top — they were one of the very first responsible brands I learned about several years back and I’m thrilled to partner with a company that places high value on transparency and sustainable practices. This post is part three in a three-part summer series.

I thoroughly enjoy this time of year, with all of its seasonal tension.
In Texas, it’s hot as hell outside and we have plenty of pool days left — but my mind is wandering to fall and sweaters and boots and the like.
I know that might induce a few eye rolls, but personally, I’m enjoying having one foot in summer and one foot in fall. It’s an opportunity to experience both of my favorite seasons at the same time, to enjoy the end of summer and look forward to a fun fall too.
So how about a little early-fall style talk today?
When fall is on the horizon (but not quite here yet), I shift my attention to transitional clothes — items that channel fall through texture and color, but are still breezy enough for the last of the summer heat.
So in today’s post, I’ll share 5 Everlane items that’ll help you transition your closet to fall. From ribbed textures, to dark-wash denim, to cozy suede, each item channels fall in its own subtle way.
Let’s jump in!
Item Spotlight: The Pima Micro Rib Funnel Neck Tank
Allow me to introduce you to my favorite shirt at Everlane right now.
First of all, the fabric — pima micro rib. It’s soft, stretchy, substantial and chic. Ribbing is one of my favorite ways to channel fall because the texture gives a subtle sweater impression. However, the fabric content is primarily cotton, meaning it’s lightweight enough to wear in the heat.
Second, the cut — a sleeveless funnel neck. A high neck gives a nod to fall, but when it’s too hot to reach for a turtleneck (or even a mock neck) the funnel neck is perfect.
A few styling ideas? Try it tucked into a leopard slip skirt, a pair of pleated high-rise trousers, or your favorite pair of jeans.
Item Spotlight: The Suede Editor Heel
Nothing channels fall quite like getting a touch of suede into your outfit, and shoes are an easy place to start. It may be too hot to wear boots, so go for a versatile suede pump (or flat).
Reviews are mixed on these heels, and mine still need a bit of breaking in to be honest. My plan is to get a comfy pair of insoles for them, moleskin the hot spots (I do this for literally all of my shoes), and wear them around the house with socks to help them break in. I have high hopes for these beautiful, timeless heels.
If pointed toe shoes aren’t your thing, Everlane also has their Day Heel in suede (with a block heel and rounded toe) too.
Item Spotlight: The Cheeky Straight Jean
These jeans have absolutely wowed me! Honestly, the pictures don’t even do them justice. I’ve been a fan of Everlane’s Cigarette jean since last fall, but I think I like these even more. The wash is perfect, the waist doesn’t gap, and they have the perfect amount of stretch to ’em. Plus, straight leg jeans are all I want to wear these days. Once it cools down more, I plan to pair them with sock booties.
For another look at the same cut, scroll back up to the first outfit — it’s the same Cheeky Straight Jean in an indigo wash.
Item Spotlight: The Poplin Oversized Shirt
This shirt really surprised me. I don’t recall ever wearing a crisp, white poplin shirt — ever. And yet, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reached for it this summer. It’s just so cool and light and effortlessly chic. I like pairing it with bike shorts, jean shorts, jeans (like above), or rumpled linen shorts. It’s going to transition beautifully into fall.
Bonus Item Spotlight: The Summer Jean
Okay, I can’t help myself. I have to mention these jeans too. They sit lower on the hips, like boyfriend jeans, and are BEYOND comfortable. On those days when you just don’t want to deal with a high rise, reach for these. I imagine pairing them with lots of slouchy, long sweaters (untucked!) once the temperatures drop.
Item Spotlight: The Cashmere Round Rib Crew
If I could give you one sweater recommendation this year, this would be it. It ticks all the boxes: Cozy cashmere. Modern cut and design (those drop sleeves and contrasting ribbed texture!). The quality for the price is unbeatable. And since it’s responsibly made, it feels as good from the inside as it looks on the outside. I’m very, VERY excited about this one.
Quick fit note: I sized up 2 sizes for an even more oversized fit.
