Over the past 11 months, I’ve practically been living in sweatsuits. I like the idea of matching sets because it makes me feel more polished and put-together, though, to be fair, at this point even putting on a watch and tinted lip balm makes me feel like I’m dressing for the Met Gala.
Of the five or six sweatsuits I own, Everlane’s new loungewear set is the one I find myself reaching for most often. It’s just the perfect combo of a great-fitting pair of joggers plus a perfectly oversized-but-not-sloppy sweatshirt. If you’re deciding whether or not to buy yourself a set, here’s what to consider about fit, function, and sizing.
The set comes in sizes XXS-XL. I’m 5-foot-1 and usually a size 10, so I opted for the size large sweatshirt and medium pants.
I like that the sweatshirt is a bit oversized in the large. I have a 36DD chest, so I often prefer to size up for the extra room. If you have a small chest and you’re between sizes, you can definitely go down for a slightly more fitted look, or size up for something nice and roomy.
We just wish there were more sizes available so Everlane could truly call this an inclusive range. The pants are magically just the right length on both of us, and the waistband isn’t too restrictive. Since I’m short, most sweatpants are too long on me, but not these babies. They hit right at the ankle, and even though Maria is taller than me, they seem to hit her in just the right spot, too.The look great as separates, especially because the joggers are fitted enough in the back that they look relatively polished with a T-shirt or fitted sweater.The sweatshirt has that cozy oversized look that makes it a great standalone piece. I often wear it with leggings or jeans, a T-shirt underneath, and a pair of classic white sneakers or loafers
The bottom line is that this is a great loungewear set, and it’s worth every penny.
You’ll get great use out of both of the pieces in this set, but if you only buy one item, the sweatshirt is definitely the most versatile. I couldn’t recommend this sweatsuit more highly — I just wish it came in even more colors!
