We are so excited to bring you a totally new piece in the Evy’s Tree universe! Named after our wonderful ET employee, the Emily in Black Pepper debuts this week and is an amazing addition to our Fall/Winter 2016 lineup. Designed to be dressed up or down with flexibility and ease, the Emily is not only a neutral color but it’s also a fabulously comfortable and luxe sweater.
The Emily is a classic, versatile, easy fit pullover with an elegant drapey cowl–neck collar. We’ve added a fun grosgrain ribbon in the collar that will allow for more versatility: ruche it, cinch it, pull it off the shoulder, or pull over your head as a hood. The super soft grey and black-flecked marled yarns make this fabric super soft and comfy. Add in the shirt tail hemline with a hi/low effect and you have the ultimate addition to your wardrobe. The Emily can take you from the office, to date night, to pajamas seamlessly while still looking super chic and pulled together. Wear with leggings, jeans, trousers, skirts, yoga pants…. The options are endless. We love The Emily and know you will too!
The Emily features the much-loved ‘hi-lo’ hem (also a feature on the Reece designs) because what woman doesn’t appreciate extra bum coverage?
It’s difficult to top the ease and comfort of a nice ‘hi-lo’ hem, but on the Emily, the collar easily gets “two very enthusiastic thumbs up” from us for its versatility! If you can like, totally name the movie this is from, you are meant to be our BFF.
The Emily collar can quickly switch from having a loose, scarf-like appearance, to a classic cowl neck design, then to a faux hood, or to a chic, completely off the shoulder look.
The Emily is completed with a simple black grosgrain ribbon subtly sewn in to the hem of the collar; this can be tucked and hidden under the collar or incorporated into the various collar designs.
The Emily in Black Pepper is a soft, Poly/Rayon/Spandex fabric, single-layer and with shallow ribbing. Slightly stretchy and with tapering sleeves, it has finished edges and does not have zippers, buttons, snaps, or hard wear of any kind.
The Emily in Black Pepper is roughly true to size; designed to be a loose fit to allow for layering. If you prefer a slim or more fitted look, stay in your normal size. If you prefer a more loose, flowy look, size up. Sizing down is not recommended if you have curvy arms or shoulders, as the sleeves would probably feel too tight in the forearms. Ladies with longer torsos should feel fine in their normal size since this is a longer design, but sizing up would provide a couple of extra inches for length. Ladies with curves will probably want to size up to reduce any ‘clinging’ effect around the abdomen. Most of the ET ladies who tried on the Emily in Black Pepper elected to go up one size.
