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.

To tap into the latest trend to arrive at Evans, we’re teaming light illustrated florals in navy, white and cerise with nautical pumps and denim. Effortless daytime chic.
With just a few days left until we welcome in 2014, we’re getting ready to wave a fond farewell to 2013, an exciting year for us all at Evans.
From taking our Curvy Street Style photobooth to events all across the UK, showcasing our new collection with Kaela Humphries at Full Figured Fashion Week, having holiday fun with 5 gorgeous bloggers to model Clements Ribeiro Swan SS13, meeting even more lovely bloggers at Plus North, celebrating the one year anniversary of our Marble Arch London flagship store, announcing our Cut for Evans fashion design initiative and creating a fun video style series with Lisa Riley, it’s been quite the year for us.
Here’s to another year of fashion, fun and more!
With love, Evans x
We’ve only just recovered from the holiday party extravaganza and those pesky ‘final’ turkey sandwiches, but before you know it, it’s already time to sparkle and step out in true style for New Year’s Eve, the last hurrah of 2013…
Cobalt blue has truly stolen our hearts for the season: if you prefer a cool separates look for a laidback kinda New Year’s, we love this Blue Diamante Cape Top (£32) paired with Black Coated Straight Leg Jeans (£29.50) for a show stopping party-ready look. Add the Blue Angular Court Heels (£29.50) – our go-to for not too high yet oh so chic heels.
A girl can never have too many Little Black Dresses. To see the year off in perfect statement style, we’re recommending the Scarlett & Jo Black 2-In-1 Peplum Dress (£45). Peplum dresses are the ideal choice to create a gorgeous Hourglass silhouette and to enhance your figure, whichever shape you are. With a feminine and alluring lace insert detail, we’re going to be pairing ours with a Black Sequin Wrap (£35) and the Patent Black Angular Court Heels (£29.50) that give off just the right amount of elegant ooze with a comfy mid-heel look.
