Outerknown Review

I received the following Outerknown items to review:

Below is a short review of each product.

#1 Oasis Dress ($148)

I am OBSESSED with the Oasis dress. It has pockets, is made with comfortable and lightweight linen fabric, and I was able to snag the Oasis dress in the sale section for half off! It also comes with a removable belt that comes in handy when you need to McGyver a rope.

The only grips I have is that the shoulder straps are adjustable and it’s tricky to get them the same length with each wear. I often tuck away the back straps and wear my dress as a cute halter top.

I recommend sizing up in Outerknown dresses. I am typically a 6 in womens and wear a medium in Outerknown.

#2 Canyon Dress ($248)

The Canyon dress is an Outerknown classic. This dress comes in many prints and colors. I opted for a white dress that while it was cute, it was also pretty see-through. I had to definitely wear this dress with a bra or else you could see everything.

Size up in the Canyon Dress. And if your skin tone is tan like mine and you like to go bra-less, we recommend going with any other color but white.

#3 Strand Skinny Jeans ($128)

The Strand Skinny Jean is part of their S.E.A. Jeans collection. Which means it comes with a lifetime warranty!

The fabric is very durable and does not have much give. We ended up buying a size 28 which is pretty much true to size. If you’re in between sizes, we recommend you size up.

Should I Buy Outerknown Apparel?

If you care about where your apparel comes from, then yes. If you care about workers earning a living wage, then yes. If you care about how sustainable your apparel is, then definitely yes.

What we love most is their commitment to workers and sustainability. We also love their apparel. Their pieces were comfortable, fashionable, and great staples to add to any wardrobe.

There are so many reasons to wear Outerknown apparel. We are glad we learned about the brand and got to try their products. We will definitely continue to invest in the brand for years to come, mostly because they invest into their communities, the environment and consumers.
