Hello! I’m Rebecca, the writer of the plus-size fashion blog The Plus Side of Me. Living in the U.S., I was completely unaware of Evans until I started reading plus-size blogs, and this store opened up a whole new set of possibilities for my wardrobe that incredibly excited me. One of the best finds on the Evans site was their wide array of shoe styles, since wide shoes and style rarely were synonymous for me before.
Evans shoes have a style for every occasion, but there are 5 standout styles that I covet for the upcoming fall season.
The Basic Heel: Evans Black Block Heel Court Shoes are the perfect black heel for nights out on the town, going to work, or dressing up for an event. I love the suede finish, and the heel is substantial enough to wear for more than an hour. For me this shoe is the perfect compromise of fashion and functionality, as I can wear it looking chic and feeling comfortable.
The Fun Flat: Evans Leopard Point Ballerina Flats caught my eye the minute I spotted them. I spend most of my days in flats, so any time I can find a pair that instantly add something worthwhile to an outfit, I get excited. I’m in love with the leopard print that makes these flats unique, and the patent black toecap makes the shoes feel luxurious. These flats add interest to any work ensemble, and will definitely be my go-to shoe when I’m ready to spend a day out shopping.
The Smart Heel: The fall season always brings back the theme of going back to school, and a lot of fall fashion is inspired by a school uniform look. One of the looks currently popular today in this school-time style is the high-heeled loafer. Evans Burgundy Block Court Shoes plays on this look with the chic tassels and the lovely burgundy colour. I always love a heel that has been inspired by classic menswear, as it brings an extra edge to any outfit.
The Chic Ankle Boot: Boots and ankle boots are a type of footwear I had never owned before this past winter. Typically my foot or ankle was too wide to ever find a decent style, but Evans has solved that problem for me. I’m in love with the Evans Tan Lace Up Ankle Boots. Originally I was drawn to the black colour, but I knew I needed to think of some new ways to up my footwear fashion. I love the suede finish and the laces that provide ankle support. I can imagine wearing these with skinny jeans or leggings, and the tan colour will perfectly accompany the fall season.
The Tall Boot: The absolutely hardest shoe for me to find is a tall boot that fits properly. Last year I finally bought my first pair that fit well from Evans, so I definitely have my eye on Evans’ boots. I most love the Evans Black Buckle Riding Boot because of the leather finish and elastic sections. The elastic sections allow for those of us with wider calves to have more comfort wearing the shoes, and the full-zipped size allows for putting on these boots with ease. These would go perfectly over skinny jeans or over tights with a dress.
These are my top 5 shoes for the fall season, and I’m predicting that my wallet will be much lighter this fall, but my feet will be much more stylish. What is your favourite shoe style?
