Natalie is back! This hoodie style was a result of constant pleading by our wonderful customers who live in boiling hot areas. It first appeared in the Evy’s Tree world at the end of spring 2015 – just in time for summer. The two initial colors were Sand and Black; they were super lightweight, ultra high end luxe and soft neutral zip ups. This was the ideal hoodie for hot climates and for those just wanting a tissue thin hoodie to throw on while walking in and out of cool air conditioned buildings. The slub fabric was sheer and super soft. Plus, we added ruching to the sides to make this piece work for everyone, because as we all know, ruching covers a multitude of sins. We also added ties to the bottom to allow different torsos to adjust the lengths as necessary.

The Natalies were quickly best sellers; the neutral tones making them instant wardrobe staples that could be worn over anything from sleeveless dresses to casual tanks. And now we are so happy to see the return of Natalie; this time in perfect Summer 2016 colors!

What is the same?
The 2016 Natalies are still a light weight layering hoodie, with double ruched sides, zipper, and hood.
What is different?
The new Natalies are actually in a material that has never been used in Evy’s Tree pieces before; we changed the fabric to a lightweight, super soft poly blend with fun specks in the fabric, giving this hoodie a great texture that will go with everything. Can we stress once again how SOFT this is? The teeny black specks are a super fun design element, and the fabric feels slightly more sturdy than the previous Natalies.

The Natalie is considered true to size; however sizing up in as option that many may prefer. The fit itself is pretty loose, but the wrists are snug. Also, this piece is designed to be layered over your clothes, so sizing up will provide some space to do so comfortably. The double-ruched sides allow for adjustment to perfectly fit your body.
