Go global this season with an explosion of eclectic cultural prints, vibrant colours and bold tribal accessories. The global trend was seen all over the SS14 catwalk, from Aztec prints and exotic embellishment to stand-out African motifs. Our Global Mix collection is a great way to try out this trend. Featuring a range of striking African and Latin inspired prints, with pops of sunset orange, fuchsia and blue, in simple and flattering silhouettes.
A great way to add a global element to your outfit while still keeping it subtle is with accessories. Choose from embellished or tasselled jewellery, or wear a printed scarf with fringing, over neutral pieces. We love this Red Multi Global Print Border Top!
Make the trend your own with our tribal printed dresses like this Diamond Contrast Maxi Dress below. Alternatively try our printed maxi skirt with our neck embellished shell top and leather sandals, for an instant cultural infusion.
This collection has something for all, no matter your shape. Head over to our Style for your Shape Studio for tips on how to wear bold colour and the must -have pieces that will flatter your shape and spice up your look.

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.”
Did you make it down to BPSFW 2014?
Love is in the air, there are hearts everywhere and love songs are playing, but whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with friends or that special someone we have the perfect Valentine outfit for you.
Heading our for a romantic candle-lit dinner for two? Nothing says romance more than this Scarlett & Jo peplum dress in a deep claret colour with a touch of delicate lace. Wear is with a smoothing slip and patent heels for even more glamour.
If you’re keeping it fun and casual on Valentine’s Day with a trip to the cinema to see a rom-com or an anti-Valentine’s thriller then this look is perfect. The sweat top is on trend yet laid back and easy to wear and the studded ankle boots finish the look perfectly.
This look is perfect if you’re being wined and dined or if you’re heading out to a bar with friends. The pillar box red is striking while the daisy print is fun and flirty. The shapewear skirt is perfect under the tube skirt for extra support and confidence.
We’ve gone crazy for daisy print at Evans HQ – the hottest catwalk print trend for SS14. The fun print has a bold monochrome look with pops of red and yellow and a nod to swinging 60s style. It’s a great way to work print into your wardrobe and you can wear the print on a top for a more subtle look or go all out with a skater dress.
Add some edge to the feminine look by adding leather-look pieces, like a black biker jacket and ankle boots, or go retro with a 60s style peter pan collar and a tube skirt with pretty flats.
How would you wear daisy print?
There’s one trend from autumn/winter that we’re so glad is here to stay for spring/summer, and that’s the motif jumper! From beautiful butterfly prints to fun animals these jumpers are cosy and whimsical – the perfect addition to your new season wardrobe.
What’s your favourite motif jumper?
We’ve been busy browsing some of our favourite plus size bloggers and indulging in some virtual street style at Evans HQ today. There’s nothing more inspiring than catching up with our readers, customers and bloggers and seeing how they style the latest pieces from Evans.
Callie, the blogger behind ‘From the Corner of the Curve‘, shows us her winter style in this stunning monochrome check print square top teamed with a chic black coat and heeled boots. This pop of cobalt blue gives this winter looks a gorgeous lift and the check print is on-trend for the season.
We’re just dotty about this Scarlett & Jo prom dress on Hanna from ‘The Wardrobe Challenge’ and we love the simple styling which takes this from a pretty party dress to retro-inspired day wear. The denim jacket and ankle boots create a laid back look that will work on all shapes.
If you’re lucky enough to be in a sunnier location, rather than the rain and wind we’ve been treated to, like Gaelle from The Curvy and Curly Closet then this COLLECTION teal landscape print dress is just perfect. The statement print is enough to make this outfit fabulous, so Gaelle has gone for simple accessories, including those gorgeous cat-eye shades!
If you want to be featured in Spotted for Evans, just upload your outfit picture to the Evans facebook page, tweet us or instagram us at @evansclothing with the hashtag #SpottedInEvans and your style could be featured on the Evans blog.
