As the weather turns cold, the skirts and dresses of summer are a distant memory. Leggings replace bare legs and tights get pulled on for those wintery mornings.
The cold weather may have arrived a little early this year but our autumn and winter collections mean your stylishness in the office remains intact.
Starting with the foundation of any good outfit, our lingerie includes concealed wire bras to reduce the risk of uncomfortable underwires getting in the way during the middle of a busy day. Our shapewear includes Spanx Super Power Pants (nude or black), control slips (nude or black), and waist cinchers to give you an hourglass figure.
Our new Winter Collection includes beautiful tunics and stunning dresses. Try pairing the Collection Navy Embellished Cutout Tunic with Black Lace Trim Leggings and wide fit figure of 8 black ankle boots for a chic workwear look.
If you want to be bright and cheerful but work in a more traditional environment, maybe this green gypsy neck top under this black suit jacket with high-rated bootcut trouser (perfect for a pear shape!) is the right balance for you.
Our workwear selections will keep you looking sharp throughout the autumn and winter. Tell us your favourite workwear choices in the comments.
Layers are the key to your autumn/winter wardrobe, especially when you need to be smart and stylish whatever the weather. You need outfits that take you from the freezing early morning starts, to a hot and bothered commute to an office that where the temperature changes every hour.
The key to layering is to start with the basics and build up. Try a simple t-shirt with jeans or trousers and then add on the layers depending on the occasion and how cold it is. Adding a shirt or layering 2 t-shirts together will give you that extra warmth without feeling to wrapped up.
To up the warmth, but keep the style factor, you can then add on more layers through a cosy knit or a quilted gilet. We love the Grey Cable Front Knit Hoody for casual days, the Purple Detail Collar Cardigan when you need knitwear that’s slightly smarter or the Navy Padded Gilet when you need extra comfort and warmth.
If that’s still not enough and you’re feeling the chill, finish your look with a plus size coat from Evans. The Berry Duffle Coat will add a dash of colour on drab, drizzly days and the Chocolate Padded Parka Coat is a great alternative to black, and is casual enough for everyday, but has a luxe finish thanks to the faux fur trim hood.
What are your top autumn layering tricks and tips?
With so many party opportunities on the horizon, now is the time to start thinking about your holiday outfits. The party invites will be in our letterboxes before we know it!
A classic little black dress will see you the holiday season for all the great parties that will soon be filling up your calendar. We suggest a classic black dress from the new Clements Ribeiro Swan Winter Collection. The Lace Embellished Rebecca dress has an empire waist and a on-trend collar, perfect for pear shapes. The three-quarter length lace sleeves cover your arms whilst adding a gorgeous, luxe finish. This will work for elegant Christmas cocktails or dancing the night away at a New Years Eve party.
After-work Christmas drinks can be a great opportunity to show your out of office style and experiment with you look. For these informal affairs, pair colourful wine jeggings with Black Lurex Longline Jumper for a laid back but chic, seasonal party look. Slip into a pair of glitter ankle boots with extra padding and amaze your workmates!
With so many families spread throughout the country, the holiday season is a great time to catch up with family near and far. Christmas lunch isn’t always the only get together for many families, and if you find yourself at a family holiday party with a glass of mulled wine in your hand, the lace and print mixture of Swan by Clements Ribeiro Floral Print Wisteria 21 dress is perfect. These top rated black snake effect heels will be just right with the dress – on trend and stylish but won’t detract from the statement of the dress.

Clements Ribeiro Swan for Evans returns for Christmas this week with another beautiful collection. Based on art deco city lights and 1920’s decadence, this collection is perfect for the Christmas party season.
The designer duo’s third range for Evans mixes with their autumn collection and like previous seasons it celebrates curves in stunning designs, materials and prints. Now there is the added ‘sparkle’ of fine beadwork on top-of-the-wishlist items, like the elegant flapper style dress and gold embellished cardigan.
Commenting on their new designs Inacio Ribeiro says: “We were channeling Lolita de Lempicka’s muse, a curvy version of Daisy Buchannan of The Great Gatsby. We have also injected lace into the range with pieces inspired by dresses we designed for Adele, giving the collection additional star glamour.”
The Clements Ribeiro Swan Christmas collection will be available online at www.Evans.co.uk and in selected stores at the end of the week.

What are the best things about autumn? There’s really so much to love about this time of year. Spiced hot drinks at the coffee shops, the satisfying crunch of leaves underfoot, crisp, clear mornings and that first day of the season when you can see your breath and can wrap up in your favourite scarf.
Lovely as these annual experiences are, what is really the best thing about autumn? The clothes, of course! Cosy jumpers over bright, colourful jeans, fun scarves, stylish boots, and of course the all important winter coat.
