When it comes to party wear and occasions, Melissa McCarthy just gets it right every time. From premieres to flashy parties, we love her style and are getting ready for the festive season with another oh-so-stylish look from the lady herself.
Inspired by this snap from the red carpet for her newest film ‘The Heat’, also starring Sandra Bullock, we adore the flashes of sparkle, coated jeans and matching heels.
Our Black Animal Print Coated Jeans (£35) are the style staple of the season: printed jeans are the ideal choice to fit and flatter every shape – especially perfect for defining the Apple shape, just like Melissa. We team ours with the Grey Metallic Animal Print Top (£35) which has subtle metallic detailing, and finish off wiith Metallic Pewter Angular Heels (£29.50). The new heel shape is so on trend for the season and is ultra comfortable too, ticking all of our style boxes.

We’re introducing a groundbreaking new collection: ‘Cut for Evans’. Cut for Evans is our young designers’ initiative, bringing fresh talent and fashion design with no size limitation to the High Street. Alice Farrow (Bournemouth University) and Rebecca Partington (Kingston University) will see their designs launched online and in-store early next year.
Judged by a panel made up of our in-house design and buying teams, Louise Court – editor of Cosmopolitan, Kat Byrne – fashion editor of Closer, and Remi Ray – blogger and founder of Plus Size Fashion Weekend, Alice’s contemporary and bold print designs wowed the panel, whilst Rebecca’s fun and unique knitwear collection is predicted to be a High Street Hit.
Evans’ Design Manager, Rebecca vann Reicher, says: ‘The industry is very rigid in how they approach body shape and we wanted to not only help change this mindset, but also show that not everything has to be showcased on a size 8 frame.’
