Everlane Linen Notch Shirt and Cheeky Straight Jeans Review

Here lately, it seems my personal style has changed. I’m more drawn to neutral colors, linens and I’m even branching out to other styles of jeans besides skinny jeans! Skinny jeans are still my favorite and are the ones I reach for the most, since they look great with so many tops. My personal style closely resembles the styles I include in the French Minimalist capsule wardrobe eBook series.

You may remember this blog post, “Everlane, Eileen Fisher & Grayson Try-On Session” a couple of weeks ago. I reviewed a few Everlane tops in that post. This Everlane Linen Puff Sleeve Top is one of my absolute favorite tops and the quality of the linen is amazing.

I partnered with Everlane on this post to review their Linen Short Sleeve Notch Shirt. I received the “canvas” color and ya’ll it is amazing! I had wanted to order the “white” color, but it is backordered. I don’t have many ivory color tops, so I knew it would fit in perfectly in my Summer capsule wardrobe.

For size reference, my height is 5’9″. For tops, I typically wear a size Medium (10) or Large (12), depending on the brand and style of the top (slim fit I usually wear a Large). For bottoms, my normal size is a size 10. My shoe size is 9.

When I received this Linen Short Sleeve Notch Shirt, I was once again impressed with the quality of the fabric and workmanship in the making of this top. I ordered a size 10 (same size as the Linen Puff Sleeve Top) and it fits perfectly. The fabric is a midweight linen and is not see through. It is such a versatile top and I’m looking forward to wearing it with my jeans, skirts, pants and shorts. You can leave it untucked for a relaxed look (like I’m wearing it here) or tuck it in for a more fitted style. It comes in several colors: white, black, indigo, pale yellow, canvas (like mine) and royal blue.

I’m wearing the top with my Everlane Cheeky Straight Jeans (Indigo Wash) (ankle length) I bought and arrived last week and my Pons Avarcas Sandals in “tan” that I can’t stop wearing! I sized up to a 31 in the Everlane Cheeky Straight Jeans (Indigo Wash). They are a relaxed fitting jean and they are so comfy!

Everlane’s Description:
A go-to summer staple. With an airy, boxy fit and easy button front, the Linen Notch Short-Sleeve Shirt is made of soft, breathable linen and features a modern notched collar. From beach to brunch to bbq—this shirt is ready for summer.

My Thoughts:
Everlane once again nailed a linen top! This top drapes well and the collar lays flat. I particularly like the wide waist band across the bottom of the top and the length of the sleeves. I can see myself wearing this top a lot this Summer!


Here’s a closeup look at the shirt. By the way, Kendra Scott is having a Memorial Day 20% Off Sale, which ends May 25. I’m wearing my Elle Abalone Shell Faceted Earrings (similar Elle Abalone Shell Drop Earrings), Fern Gold Collar Necklace and Zorte Gold Cuff Bracelet which are all included in the sale.

Let me know how you like the Linen Short Sleeve Notch Shirt!

How would you wear it?

  1. I can’t wait until the french mimalist e-book comes out. I hope you include some Everlane pieces. I rarely need to dress up and the FM books are so dressy I try to take your FM books and make all the pieces more casual. It seems that is the style you are into, FM but casual. I would love an e-book like that. Anyway, I’m glad you are partnering with Everlane. I would love it if you to review some of their flats and sandals, and maybe ankle boots in the fall.

  2. Love this look! I have a somewhat narrow foot and wondered how the sandals fit? Do they run true to size? Run wide? Thank you!

  3. Patricia,

    These sandals run true to size and are instantly comfortable when you put them on your feet! I’m a size 9, with a normal width foot and I ordered the size 9. I’ve been wearing them several times a week and they still look new. Mine are the “tan” color and they are available in many colors to choose from.

  4. Linda,

    Thank you so much for your comment and I’m glad to hear you like the French Minimalist series! I absolutely love Everlane, so you will probably be seeing several styles I review periodically on the blog.

  5. You nailed this blouse too with great styling! It looks great on you! I enjoy your posts very much!!

  6. You nailed this look too with great styling! You look great! I enjoy your posts Very much.

  7. I bought a pair of Eileen Fisher striped linen pants on sale, but needed a navy linen top to go with them. Usually I wear a PL, so misses’ clothes are often too large or too long. I got a M in this in navy and it fits beautifully and looks like it was made to go with the pants!

  8. That’s great that you bought those Eileen Fisher pants on sale! I bet that top will look lovely with those pants.
