Here in Northern California, the key to daily comfort is layers, layers, layers! The early mornings and late evenings are chilly with the beautiful blanket of coastal fog that slowly creeps in and covers our rolling hills, but during the rest of the day the bright sun warms everything up quite a bit! Are layers as necessary where you live as they are here?
Evy’s Tree was happy to introduce perfect layering tops in Fall 2015; the Layering Leaves! Immediately available in two reversible colors, these light-weight and breathable shirts were the answer to your layering needs. They were super soft, super cozy, long sleeve, lightweight layering hoodies that went under anything, or could be worn by themselves. They featured a generous hood and thumbholes and the two options were great fall/winter colors. Coffee and Cream boasted cream on one side and rich chocolate on the reverse; and Grey Smoke featured light grey on one side and smoke grey on the reverse. These hoodies rapidly became Evy’s Tree wardrobe basics.
And now it’s time for the Spring 2016 additions to the Layering Leaves Collection!
What is the same?
These are the same 100% breathable cotton fabric, super soft and stretchy. The sleeves are long (remember the fabric is thin so think ‘sun coverage’) with YES, thumbholes! The pieces are in gently contrasting colors, meant to be completely reversible, with the darker serged seams visible on the reverse in a way that is deliberate and casually fun.
What is different?
These spring pieces are hoodless, featuring a slightly enlarged boat neck. There is a new, adorable grosgrain ribbon drawstring ruching design on one side, allowing the hem of the piece to be drawn up slightly on one side (or not, your choice!), pulling the top in for a slightly more snug fit.
The featured colors are Navy/Yellow and Smokey Mint.
These tops are true to size. They are meant to be slightly loose, allowing for a thin camisole or tank to be worn under them if you wish, as well as being layered with another top over them. They can be worn individually or as layers.
Harmony – 5’7 and wearing a XL on the left & 1X on the right
Consuelo on the left in a 1X and Samantha on the right in a XS. Remember that the ruching feature does not have to be used, allowing the shirt to lie ‘flat’ if that’s what you desire.
All accessory details are in our listing. For complete sizing suggestions and measurements please see the Sizing Chart (under the Fit and Care tab in the listing). The Smokey Mint size chart is here and the Yellow/Navy sizing chart is here.
