Whitney Thompson British Plus Size Fashion Weekend Evans

Over the weekend of Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February Evans were the proud headline sponsor of British Plus Size Fashion Weekend. An exclusive press launch on Friday 14th February saw us showcase the ground breaking Cut for Evans range plus our extensive range of brands and a preview of Evans SS14. British Plus Size Fashion Weekend was then open to all on Saturday 15th February, bringing attendees the ultimate plus size fashion experience.

There were two fashion shows throughout the day on Saturday, with Evans opening the catwalk show both times with 24 looks including Cut for Evans, Scarlett & Jo, Collection and core ranges. There was also a market place where we had a stand which had beautiful Cut for Evans imagery and the key prints and where attendees could browse the latest Evans clothing and get measured for shape by shape advisors.

As well as customers there were plenty of special guest appearances from models, including America’s Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson, Hayley Hasselhoff and Felicity Hayward, UK and international bloggers and other VIPs.​

We had some lovely feedback from people on the day and on our facebook, twitter and Instagram – “The girls looked STUNNING on the catwalk, The Cut collection was 100% the highlight of the entire show for me. Gorgeous prints, such a refreshing collection.”

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

Wide leg jeans look elegant and stylish with red pleat sleeve pocket top, a rose shaped corsage, tan rouched platform sandals and an orange oval stone ring

The  Boy Fit

You can be feminine yet understated in rip and repair boy fit jeans and a cute camel pintuck t-shirt. Wear with strappy brown espadrille wedge, a floral clutch bag and a ring.

The Crop

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 ?

 

Blogger Nefferth shows us how to wear chinos . . .

12:18 PM

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.

For shopping

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?

Anjula and Shuchi’s catwalk watch: Wide Leg Trousers

12:58 PM

Hi,

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?
