My favourite outfit in India! Introducing Everlane ใ€ฐ๏ธ Not an ad or discount code because not affiliated.

Because we had to constantly run around visiting stores, I made sure I brought a practical wardrobe. (I am not risking my beige dry-clean only culottes ๐Ÿ˜…). Jeans just and the other patterned one that I always wear wasnโ€™t formal enough.

The top

Thatโ€™s why I got the washed black chino pants โ€” 100% cotton (not the most ecofriendly material though) with an elastic waist with an above-ankle crop. Very breathable too!

The pants

Polka dot oversized top was silk (sorry not #vegan :( ) was smooth and is thick enough to hold weight so less likely to get wrinkled. Also itโ€™s dark in colour so itโ€™s less prone to yellowing under sun and with sweat.

WHY EVERLANE?

Pros

It isnโ€™t perfect but is a โ€˜less evilโ€™ brand imo. It is one of the pioneers in l fashion being โ€˜transparentโ€™, detailing how the price breaks down in major components. It also names the factory that makes the garment.

Cons

The downside is that I still am not sure where the materials are from and that their refund procedures are expensive if youโ€™re based in HK. So donโ€™t buy anything unless youโ€™re very sure that it fits.
