It’s happened – jumpers and coats made their first appearance of the season in the office. With autumn firmly in mind (and rainfall hammering away at the windows), our minds turned to how to wear the relaxed knit, whatever your tastes.
Try teaming a relaxed knit with plus size tapered trousers and smoking slippers for a pared down, downtown NYC chic look. This week saw some gorgeous tapered trousers hitting down online and in-store and we love them. Easy, effortless, relaxed chic and oh so comfy, the Black Geometric Tapered Trousers (£32) look great with our Dove Grey Lace Knitted Top (£25). This lace knit top is perfectly soft and is beautifully accented with a V-neck stud detail. Finish the look with Black Gem Accent Ballerina Shoes (£25) if you’ve managed to avoid the rain.
Keep things girly by teaming your knitwear with skater skirts and on trend Chelsea boots from our AW13 drop. Perfect for weekend looks or casual offices, we adore the Navy Contrast Knit Jumper (£29.50) teamed with the Black Jersey Skater Skirt (£25). Add Oxblood Leather Studded Chelsea Boots (£55) to toughen the look up and stay right on trend whilst keeping your feet warm.

This season, shoes take a stride in a new direction for a trend we could hardly believe was coming – the low block heel.
Elegant, feminine and sort of unexpected, we adore this trend and have slotted it neatly into our AW13 footwear collection. Whilst it might not be the immediate statement of a classic platform heel, the low block heel packs a punch in a sort of Swinging Sixties’, Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn demeanor.
What’s more, it’s oh so comfortable, meaning heels in the daytime? – Yes siree. Coupled with our hallmark added padding for extra comfort and breathable linings in selected styles, our low block heels are a must-have for your seasonal style staples.
Contemporary, style led and elegant, COLLECTION for Evans pairs hallmark detailing with directional silhouettes. COLLECTION for Evans is our go-to for beautiful separates with subtle details and we can’t wait to start building our classic wardrobe with these staples. Perfect for work or for teaming with jeans for an effortlessly chic look.
From covetable winter florals to must-have motif knitwear, trend led checks to season perfect sleepwear and lingerie, the autumn catalogue has landed at Evans and we couldn’t wait to share it with you. This season’s hottest trends are brought straight to you with wearable prints, shape perfect cuts and plenty of newness.
Check it out!
The tartan trend is back back back and we’ve incorporated it into our new seaon offerings via COLLECTION for Evans. More on that later, but for now, let’s have a reminisce about the 90′s. Oh slouch jeans and chunky Chelsea boots. You’re making our AW13 that much sweeter.
More of a love-hate trend, the winter florals trend is oh so simple to work. Pair a floral top with emerald green, claret red or amethyst purple notes with a streamlined trouser and riding boots for a style statement that’ll last all season.
Evans Indigo Slouch Jeans (£29.50)
… And one that we all knew already. Our Denim Shop returns for the new season with even more perfectly tailored choices. Our jeans and denim pieces are especially designed and fitted to ensure the optimum fit, with our Pear fit denim that has been said to ‘change the way you dress’. Ooh la la! Try a straight leg or bootcut for everyday wear, or venture to pastures anew with our slouch boyfriend jean – style with an embellished collar shirt and heel.
We’re welcoming the new season with directional, sophisticated pieces to refresh your wardrobe. Dark Romance features stunning soft silhouettes in rich jewel tones that’ll add a touch of elegance to your day or night look.
This shirt darkens up the classic floral print with jewel-laced tones of royal purple. The soft silhouette and full length sleeves are perfectly flattering and are great for cosying up against the cooler autumnal air. Dark florals are the easiest way to transition your wardrobe.
Evans Midwash High Waist Jeans (£29.50)
For a trend led update to the classic jean, invest in a pair of high waist jeans. Perfect for flattering and shaping your silhouette, you’ll be able to tuck floaty tops in for a stunning look.
Evans Green Floral Skater Top (£29.50)
Soft silhouettes and winter florals combine in the green floral skater top to create a must-have, dark romance look. We adore the deep emerald hues and the skater/peplum look that’ll create a gorgeous feminine shape.
Finally, our AW13 footwear drop is beginning to filter through and we are just a little excited. Okay, maybe a lot excited. These black patent Chelsea boots are fitted with soft added padding for all day comfort and a hallmark chain buckle at the ankle for some CHANEL inspired charm. Can you spell l-o-v-e?

This week has been an exciting one here at Evans HQ…

Continuing our transition to the autumn, we’ve selected our must-have boots and shoes in the office today.
Black Stud Back Chelsea Boots (£49.50)
Black Buckle Strap Chelsea Boots (£39.50)
Did you know? All of our boots and shoes at Evans are especially designed and crafted for the wider foot. Available in extra wide fit with selected styles also available in a standard wide fit, we pride ourselves on ensuring the most comfortable and stylish step forward into the new season.
Every boot and shoe has a flexible sole with added padding for all day comfort, so you’ll feel just as good by 6pm as you did at – sigh – 7am. Some of our styles even come with breathable soles so they’ll last even longer and feel even better.
What’s more – our boots selection has been revamped for autumn/winter 2013, and we have some elegant, feminine, daring and classic styles in long and ankle lengths to suit every occasion and every outfit. Our long boots come with elasticated calf panels that stretch to fit every size and ensure comfort.
But don’t just take it from us…
