Outfit and Review: Varley Cleon Sweat.

 Last week I posted about a shopping trip I took to Evereve and I was really into the Varley top I tried on. Well, I bought it:

The Varley Cleon is billed as a sweatshirt but it's really not. It's comfy and oversized like a sweatshirt but this is a NICE top - it's expensive but the quality is there. The material is weighty and has a ribbed texture and you could certainly layer it over a tank or tee but I am just wearing it by itself. The details are what take it above a sweatshirt: Thick cuffs and trim and a crew neck that's almost a little funnel neck. The side zips and a slightly cropped straight profile make it hang just right. 

The sleeves are extra long and it has a drop shoulder so I had to size down in this (I'm wearing a small.) Am I scared I'm going to spill coffee on it? Absolutely I am, but I just loved the cream color and don't have anything else like it. It comes in a few other colors as well - all of them good. (I really love the grey!) 

I'm wearing it with my Athleta Headland Hybrid Cargo tights which are the leggings you want when you don't want just leggings. They have front zip pockets and a double layer on the front but stretchy material on the back. I can't recommend them enough. They also have a new Headlands Hybrid jogger, which I'm dying to try. I added my Clare V Midi Sac which is just the right amount of color. Ooh, there's a grey snakeskin Midi Sac on sale at Nordstrom right now! Someone snap that up.

Details! I'm wearing my Gorjana Parker chain and my little bird skull from Paxton Gate. I am into the layering but wanted to keep things a bit more minimal for this outfit. (Related: I am not actually sure how to minimal.)

Oh, right, shoes! I thrifted these Vince Zeta loafers right before the pandemic started and only wore them a few times. Aren't they good though? I really should wear them more - the leather is so soft and I love the platform. They're still available in a few sizes on NR but I also love these Vince Brenden slip-ons, which very similar but a bit sportier.

I hope this was helpful! The Varley Cleon Sweat is available at Varley (all colors), Nordstrom, Zappos, and EverEve


  1. You are making me want that sweatshirt so bad! A question about the gray version: online it looks like it has the slightest tinge of lavender? Is it? Or is it just my screen making it look like that?

    1. They only had the white in-store but they had another Varley top in the grey and it does lean slightly lavender.(It's a really pretty color!)

  2. Love those loafers! Do they run true to size?

    1. I would say so. I'm wearing my usual size and they fit fine.
