An on-trend winter coat is essential for braving the chill in style. Finding the right one for you can be an ordeal, so we’ve picked our favourite winter coats from the top 4 coat trends of the season.

Colour Pop

A splash of colour can instantly liven up your outfit, and this shouldn’t be limited to what your wearing underneath! A colourful coat makes a statement – neon tones work well with dark shades, whilst a pastel colour complements a neutral outfit.

Faux Fur

Get cosy in soft and snuggly faux fur. One of the key trends for AW14, go for full faux fur for a vintage Hollywood-inspired style or choose a coat with faux fur panels like this faux fur snood coat for a nod to the trend.

The Duster

Yesterday, the new Cut for Evans collections landed online and in our flagship Marble Arch store, and we couldn’t be more excited! For our second Cut For Evans collaboration, we teamed up with two brand new designers, Ellie Northway of Nottingham Trent and Eve Turley from Kingston University.

Selected by a judging panel including Trish Halpin (Editor at Marie Claire) Jess Spiring (Lifestyle Editor at Now Magazine), Laura Puddy (Stylist and Plus Size Columnist) and Georgina Horne (Fuller Figure, Fuller Bust Blog), the two designers were asked to create a 6 piece collection designed with a plus customer in mind.

Eve channelled vintage influences into her collection of knitwear, whilst Ellie’s vibrant kaleidoscopic prints were drawn from portraits of inspirational women throughout history.

Wardrobe Essential – The Printed Trouser

2:20 PM

Prints are thriving this season in every shape and form. From printed prom skirts, to printed jumpsuits the choice on offer or list is endless. Our key item amongst the printed pack this season is the printed trouser!

Ultra-stylish and incredibly versatile, the printed trouser is an essential for every stylish woman’s wardrobe. The best thing about this item is that most body shapes can buy into it, due to the wide range of styles on offer.

Parade the print in paisley print wide leg trousers; alternatively opt for a pretty floral pair in a tapered style.

Another great thing about the printed trouser is that is can be style up and down, and can be easily taking from day to night. If you are unsure on how to wear your printed trouser, check out the two outfit posts below for some style inspiration.

 

Our Grecian printed trousers landed on Evans.co.uk and in Evans stores this week,and they went down a storm. The striking print instantly elevates your look, and the timeless shapes of both items make for wear-forever pieces.

To balance out the boldness of the print, pair with simple separates in blue, black or white colours. For extra style points, team with the matching Grecian printed vest top, keeping accessories to a minimum. This look can be taken from day to night, by simply swapping flats to heels and adding red lipstick for maximum impact.

When an event calls for you to be casual but chic, the printed trouser is a great choice. For a fresh way to make a casual statement, our floral print trousers are a great option. Lightweight, with an elasticated waistband and a tapered leg, they are best teamed with simple separates. A pair of leather ballerina pumps will finish off the look nicely.

Generally epitomizing autumn/winter, dark florals are blooming this summer, and we love how Hanna has put her own individual spin on this trend with the use of a pretty pink floral head band. The perfect look for a festival!

 

Spotted! Gorgeous Callie of From the Corners of The Curve, seriously rocking our Lovedrobe Ivory crochet panel pleat dress. By teaming the white dress with black ankle boots Callie gives this look a grunge-yet-chic feel.

Tried, Tested and Rated – Our Favourite Top Rated Products at Evans

5:11 PM

Your opinion means a lot to us, which is why we really take on board all your feedback that you leave us on all your new Evans purchases. Our Top Rated section at Evans.co.uk is an edit of the tried, tested and highly rated products, from you – our lovely customers. So don’t forget to share your feedback here too – we’d love to know what you think! We have rounded up a few of our favourite reviews from our latest collection…

 

Evans Ivory Floral Hanky Hem Top   TESted 1

The Floral Hanky Hem top (£29.50), is a must have for the summer. Ticking two key trend boxes this season; pastels and florals, the stylish hanky hem adds depth and character to this classic shape. We will be styling ours with black jeggings and sandals for the day and switching to killer heels come cocktail hour.

 

Mumtohuskies from Cheshire loves this top as much as we do, she has rated it with 5 stars, she says:

 

“I love the hanky hem tops from Evans with the keyhole style detail at the neck. They are easy to wear and perfect to go with leggings and jeggings. This one is in a lovely Summery print and it co-ordinates with a lot of different colours. The fit is true to size on me and the sleeves are not too short. I am thinking about buying the matching skirt, and I will always look for this style of top when Evans bring new items online.”

 

Evans Grey And Navy Stripe Print.       tested 2

 

Nothing says summer more than a maxi dress and the Evans Grey and Navy Stripe maxi  (£49.50),  is one of our must  haves for the season. In a chic palette of grey and navy, this striped maxi dress is at the top of our shopping list! We love the versatility of this dress, as it can easily take you from the office to evening.   Tumbelina2 from Scotland agrees with us and has rated this dress with five gold stars.

 

Tumbelina2 says:

“I’ve just received this dress and I’m very pleased with it. I’m an hourglass shape and the fit is flattering with the waist panel at just the right height to accentuate my narrowest bit rather than the dress hanging from below the bust and making me look like I have no waist. The length is also perfect for me at 5″6 which is a bonus! I also like the fact that the dress skims curves nicely without relying on back ties. This dress is smart enough to wear for work but could also be worn casually with a denim jacket. Very happy!”.

 

Evans Yellow Printed Skirt   tested 3

 

Floaty, feminine and a summer staple! We fell  in love with this stunning floral print maxi skirt (£39.50),  as soon as we laid our eyes on it. We will be showcasing our chic, floral side at all those summer soirees.

 

Tally from the South Coast says:

 

“I just love the range of long skirts that Evans has supplied recently and this is no exception. I am a very tall lady and have tremendous trouble finding the correct length for my height. Well done Evans. This skirt is gorgeous for the summer being light weight. Very stylish and elegant, easy to dress up or down depending on occasion.  Perfect for summer holidays as it’s lightweight… Another great buy from Evans! “.

5:52 PM

Last week we headed to the Big Apple – New York City, for the biggest event in the plus size fashion calendar: Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek), and what a fun filled week it was!

For every fun loving, plus size Fashionista, FFFWeek is the event of the year! Held once a year in NYC, FFFWeek celebrates fashion for the curvy woman. For one whole week, stylish bloggers such as Alison Teng, Margie Ashcroft, and Nadia Aboulhosn, customers, models and editors all come together to participate in fabulous events such as fashion shows and press days.

FFF 2

This year we held an exclusive blogger pre-catwalk event and we participated in the FFF week runway, showcasing 15 fabulous outfits from our current SS14 collection, including the coveted Lovedrobe.

We also took part in the ever so popular Swap & Shop event in New York, organised by top fashion/style bloggers; Kellie B, Nadia Aboulhosn and Margie Plus. The Swap & Shop event is a customer facing event, catering for women sizes 14-30. Customers are able to shop clothing, accessories and jewellery that have been seen on style blogs, and this year customers were treated to an exciting preview of the Evans AW14 collection.

The Jewellery Edit with Nadia Aboulhosn

We just can’t get enough of superstar blogger Nadia Aboulhosn‘s chic take of street style, especially how she finishes her look with standout accessories and adds her unique NYC attitude to all her outfits.

Shop Nadia’s Jewellery Edit > Evans.co.uk/Nadia

In time to refresh your style for summer, we’ve asked Nadia to pick her favourite pieces of Evans jewellery for Style for Your Shape Studio and show us how she’ll be wearing it! Read her interview below, including top confidence tips and what jewellery to invest in this season.

THE INTERVIEW

What are your style rules?
My style rules are that there are no rules. Wear what you love and what makes you feel good.

What’s your body shape and how do you style it?
My body is pear shape and I style it depending on my mood that day. I could feel like wearing something form fitting with heels one day and then jeans with sneakers the next.

FB_SQUARE_NADIA-3

What are the big trends for SS14 and how would you style them?
Big trends for SS14 would have to be drop earrings and gold pieces. I would style gold jewellery with all black or all white outfits. Drop earrings look good with your hair both up and down. So I would style them both ways.

What is your favourite piece from Evans for SS14?
Rings are my favourite accessories. I’m in love with the gold and rose gold midi rings. My second favourite piece is the long thin silver chain as this can be styled with anything.

FB_SQUARE_NADIA-2

How do you dress up a simple outfit with jewellery?
I love layering necklaces with a really simple outfit (like the all black one I wore getting out of the cab) to really make a statement. It’s fun to experiment with layering especially for night time looks.

What tips can you give to boost confidence?
Focus on what you like about yourself instead of what you don’t like. So many people are stuck on the negative that they can’t acknowledge the great things about themselves because they’re so fixated on what they don’t like. You define what beauty is, not someone else. Keep a positive mind.
