We’ve been indulging in some virtual street styling at Evans HQ today. There’s nothing more inspiring than catching up with our readers, customers and bloggers and seeing how they style Evans.
Felicity wears the Scarlett & Jo Black Embellished Neckline Dress (£45) with a delicate drop earring (£6.50) and beautiful matching hairpieces in her ballerina bun. Perfect for special occasions or a summer wedding.
We spotted Jen from Jasifer’s Lions Club is the stunning Scarlett & Jo Blue Spot Dobby Shirt Dress (£45). Complete with mid-length sleeves, a dotted sheer layer on a lined dress inner and an adorable collar – we can’t really think of any reasons not to love it. We’d add bright heels to colourblock the look.
Margie makes the Live Unlimited Black Cut Out Short Sleeve Dress (£65) even more fun with a light grey jacket – try the Grey Marl Jersey Jacket (£35) for an on-trend downtown cool look. Perfect for weekends and evenings alike.
Finally, Nicola at 2Many Cupcakes works the Clements Ribeiro Swan Lobster Print Tunic with a pair of Chelsea ankle boots. Effortless, easy and oh so chic.

From tailored jackets to deep jewel toned hues, and singing stars to top actresses, there is some serious style in CelebLand as of late. See how you can steal their look for a fraction of the price at Evans.
Grammy award winning Adele is at the top of our style stakes with her signature classic, sometimes retro and always elegant looks. The latest ELLE US cover star famously favours blacks for her red carpet outfits, looking to textures and accessories to add personality. Try teaming the Scarlett & Jo Black Mesh Yoke Fit and Flare Tunic with leggings to get Adele’s fun and stylish look. We’d add this beautiful collar and diamante earrings too.

Lisa Riley favours deep gem inspired hues for a pop of colour to match her vivacious personality. For the incoming summer months, a maxi dress is perfect. You could dress it down with sandals, or add a wedge for the evening. Get her look with the Evans Blue Butterfly Maxi Dress.

We’re also loving Melissa McCarthy’s style at the moment. Fun, frivolous and feminine, her outfits reflect one of the funniest ladies in the show business. This shell pink and red combo is striking and inspiring for the spring weather ahead – get her look with the Evans Neutral Foil Spot Gypsy Top and Evans Red Two-Tone Jeggings.

Are you stuck in a style rut when it comes to jeans?
From boy fit and crop jeans to boot cut and wide fit, there is a style and a fit for us all. That means there’s no excuse for wearing old jeans over and over again.
Why not try something new because you’ll find there’s a wide range of tops and footwear to match whatever jeans you choose.
Here are our top three ways to work evans new jeans. What’s your favourite?
The Wide Leg
The Boy Fit
Crop jeans are so versatile, they go with everything. For a smart weekend look, wear them with a floral shell top, gold loop and weave sandals a summer cross body bag and a gold leaf stretch bracelet.
Have you treated yourself to any new jeans this season ?
There is a reason why we make a list of our favourite top 100 songs. And there is a reason why the same songs keep popping up in these collective charts. They are considered classic and transcending the test of time. In this post I want to share with you a three way look with another classic: the chino trousers.
First worn by US military soldiers at the end of the 19th century, chino trousers have come a long way. Frequently used in casual looks, the chinos comfortable appearance may seem hard to picture otherwise. Playing with different accessories, layers and colours, I’ve created three looks to spice up your chinos.
For the office
Keep your work attire clean, fresh and accessorise with colour to enhance your professional look.
When I go shopping, I’m hopping from one store to another. So I need clothes and accessories that move. Wedges are the perfect alternative to heels, as they are steadier to walk on and don’t cause a problem of I need to run to get that bargain.
For a party
If there is one situation where I think you can go all out with accessories, then it would be at a party. Evans holds a variety of colours and materials to cater to every taste. I chose to bling up my chinos! You want to be noticed at that lounge party, right? All you need now is a cosmopolitan and some great tunes.
How would you style your chinos?
Stylish Blogger Gabi Gregg has been featured in the August issue of Glamour Magazine, she’s been pictured working the layered trend in the evans 2 in 1 printed cover up top. Don’t forget to pick up a copy . . .
This is Anjula and Shuchi and we are fashion stylists from Material Thangs Styling Group. We are based in New York and are here to bring you some styling tips on how to recreate catwalk looks to best flatter your body shape!
Skinny bottoms have been a popular trend for many seasons now, but there was no denying the number of wide silhouettes gracing the 2011 summer runways! For a pear-shaped figure, the super wide leg is a flattering choice. Evans Blue Super Wide Leg Trouser is made of a soft jersey material that drapes over the hips in a way that will flatter your bottom. There are no pockets or other details that add bulk to this wide cut, instead Evans have added a v-shaped waist band that smoothes out and flatters the stomach area. The super wide leg creates an a-shape silhouette for your body and will make your waist look smaller if worn with the right top.
To elongate your torso, pair the wide leg trouser with more fitted tops and avoid baggier cuts that will add volume to your figure. Curvy fashionistas can tuck in their top and add a waist belt to highlight the narrowest area of the torso. This will help add curve to the upper body, while conceal any problem areas that you may have on the bottom. The wide leg trouser is a great piece to wear for hotter days, since they are loose and comfortable. Picnics, barbeques and other casual occasions can always use a comfortable wide leg trouser. For fancier occasions, use accessories and dressier tops to play up this trouser. If the evening gets breezy, add a cardigan or jacket that extends to the mid-hip for the most flattering look.
How will you be wearing your wide leg trousers this season?
‘ This evans military jacket will take you from day to night in style. I’m in meetings all day so after work I’ll be swapping my Doc Martens for heels . I’ve styled the oufit with my grey acid wash jeggings and this gorgeous vintage handbag. I love the military and vintage look, they always go well together. ’
Stuck in a style rut? Want some inspiration for summer clothes that look and feel great?
Evans buyer Tiggy Derham has been shooting some of the new collection in New York and it’s been difficult for her. . . she can’t walk down the street without being blown away by some of the gorgeous items our American sisters are wearing.
Here are some of our favourite looks:
These lovely ladies show that a simple shift dress can be so versatile. You can dress a shift dress down with gladiator sandals or vamp it up for work with some killer heels. It’s all about adding a fabulous accessory, whether that’s a gorgeous yellow handbag, cool shades or a soft scarf.
Florals are bang on trend for summer and we love how the deep v-neck draws attention to this lady’s best assets. The material of this dress is light and floaty, perfect for summer in a hot city.
If there was a fashion textbook, you could use this lady as an example of how to do layers. The high waisted skirt cinches in her waist while the pretty shrug covers up her arms and it all matches. She’s also followed the golden rule when it comes to prints: If you have a statement skirt or bottoms, then keep the top half simple to avoid scaring small children.
What gorgeous colours! However, what really makes this outfit is this lady’s clever use of accessories. The belt flatters her curves, the necklaces look fabulous and the shades are super sexy. That’s not to mention the big blue handbag. Wow!
This lady looks blooming lovely in her rose print dress. Not only is the print pretty, there are hidden surprises like the ribbon detailing round the bust that highlights her curves and the frill detail along the hem that will swirl around her knees as she struts across the floor. The white gladiator sandals are gorgeous too.
For all those cool chicks out there, this is an example of how to do bold and beautiful. The dominoes and spots remind us of Beth Ditto’s last collection for Evans and that’s making us get excited about the Gossip singer’s next range out in September. And did you spot this lady’s bright pink ear-rings? How cool are they?
