Best Clothing Store for Women


It’s three o’clock in the afternoon. You just got a last-minute invite to a gallery opening, but you’ve already spilled half a cup of Chipotle guac on your work clothes. A friend has two backstage passes to Drake, but you’re downtown in gym gear with serious sweat damage. Someone stole your shoes while you were at yoga. These are some of the wacky, wonderful turns any New York day can take, and whether or not they involve Drake, we sometimes need to look our best at a moment’s notice. If you don’t have time to run home and there’s no H&M handy, Everlane Now is there for you. Michael Preysman’s affordable luxury brand preaches “radical transparency,” operating exclusively online since 2010. Although there’s no brick-and-mortar location, the new one-hour delivery service, launched this past December, operates exclusively in New York. Its high-quality basics look and feel far more expensive than they are, and its minimalist aesthetic allows for true day-to-night versatility. The $15 tees and tanks drape well enough to be worn into evening, but there are also reasonably priced silks and cashmeres for those looking to get fancy, most in slouchy styles that render size-guessing foolproof. The real draw, of course, is that everything can be at your apartment/office/coffee shop/park bench in less than 60 minutes.
