“The Summer night is like a perfection of thought.” ~ Wallace Stevens
As children, there is little that can compete with the carefree magic labeled simply as summer days. We awaited their arrival with bated breath from classroom prisons, as we kicked at our chair legs and watched long black clock hands inch slowly toward the time of our parole. When that school bell finally rang, was there ever a more jubilant (and chaotic) celebration than those screams of joy and flurries of backpacks, paper, and pencils as we jostled our way to the door, down the halls, and across the last few steps to freedom? Summer stretched out before us in a long string of days only loosely connected by a minimum of parental expectations. We knew we would live in our swimsuits, eat ice cream and bowls of cereal, watch brainless cartoons, and play with friends. Nothing, we thought, could ever be better than summer.
Until we grew up and discovered summer nights. Summer nights occur under the stars that eventually peek out once the lingering sunsets give way to darkness. We work during the day because that’s what adulting entails, but it just makes those off-hours more precious. We may gather around a pool, on a beach, with friends around a backyard fire pit on a patio lit by strings of white lights, or thankfully, once again in public indoor places of pre-pandemic fame. Drinks in hand, we mingle and soak up the laughter-infused atmosphere and we know that nothing can ever be better than summer nights.
Evy’s Tree is more than ready to resume the casual and glorious pace of summer living, and we are happily bringing you a three piece capsule that is designed to coax you out of those daytime joggers or business attire. To begin, the all-new Shallin in Black & White Stripe is a versatile light weight, open front summer kimono style cardigan in everyones favorite neutral print. A perfect balance of classic and modern, the monochrome black and white stripe of this style can seamlessly take you from beach to brunch, as it layers over your bathing suit or favorite dress. The Shallin is a body flattering mid-thigh length and features drop shoulders and elastic cuffs for comfort, along with pockets for convenience. In a fabric like our basic Layering Leaves shirts, the Shallin is also reminiscent of our popular light weight summer Diana Wraps; the Shallin is light weight but feels heavier than the Dianas, and while the Diana hugs the arms and body more the Shallin has room to layer. Available in three sizes, the Shallin pairs well over anything from board room pencil skirts (wink), to cut off Denim Shorts or a cute Denim Skirt (wink-wink), or of course with our new Denim Skinnies in Berry, and will be one of your most versatile cardigans of the season.
Oh yes, our famously comfortable and chic Denim Skinnies deserve to have their own time in this celebratory return to society season, and are here in a delicious hue that is both vibrant and basic. In the same fit as our white relaxed-fit Skinnies, these new Premium Denim Relaxed Skinnies in Berry are made with a gentle and slightly stretchier fabric that also has a greater memory. Featuring a comfortable mid-rise, a relaxed slim fit, zipper fly and of course the necessary functional pockets, these denims will speak to your unique sense of style and comfort. Pull these on and see how many style possibilities you can create, mixing and matching with many of your Evy’s Tree tops!
Lastly in this collection is the return of the top-selling Kylie Dress, now in chic basic black. The Kylie Dress in Black is the ultimate transitional dress that allows you to wear it your way, in any season, with its ET flair of combining wardrobe essential with the perfect pops of color highlights on the shoulders, this time in pink floral fabric accents. Featuring long raglan sleeves, soft slub knit fabric and a flattering curved hem, the Kylie also has a signature button and woven strap detail, allowing for sleeve length adjustment so it can be worn now with sleeves rolled up and buttoned over bare legs, or worn later with the sleeves rolled down and over our Berry Skinnies. The Kylie is designed for afternoons of escaping the heat or cool summer evenings, and is the perfect comfort dress for anywhere your heady summer nights may take you.
