What I provided is the standard set notation for odds and evens as far as I know.

In terms of what you asked, why wouldnt you just write down $\displaystyle \in$Evens if you are going to use the word even,

The problem with that is you can define the odds and evens via set notation like I used, but you couldn't do that with what you said since you use the word even

but yes, I would have to say it would be correct to say n such that n is even, but it's redundant and doesn't tell you anything
