As the UK braces another cold snap, it’s time to inspire some spring style in the wardrobe and attempt to cast attention away from the rain, wind and snow that is hitting our windowpanes.
Florals are one of our favourite spring trends, whether in the form of a dainty ditsy print or a bolder design. See how we wear florals for every occasion, including for the daytime and for the evening.
The Evans Ivory Rose Print Kimono Top is a beautiful choice for the spring. Stylish and understated with a boxy, square fit, this top has an elegant tile print border design and tie belt at the waist for a variety of fits. Add charcoal grey jeans and wedge sandals to complete your look, or swap for some coloured ballerina flats for a more wearable style.
For a more versatile floral, we’re loving the Evans Black Floral Print Bubble Hem Top for a look that can be worn both at the workplace or at the weekend. To inspire a workwear look, team this top with wide leg trousers and an open front cardigan or jacket. This look is great for Apple and Busty shapes.
To add personality to the top for weekend looks, try a pair of high waisted jeans, the Evans Khaki High Waist Jeans have beautiful copper buttons and the khaki hue is just on trend for the season. Add a bracelet to balance the figure, some ballerina pumps and you’re good to go!
Downplay the floral trend with a more understated version. The Evans Black Rose Print Woven Front Tee has a beautiful pale pink rose print on a woven front, with cap sleeves and a jersey back to inspire spring/summer style. We love wearing ours with red jeggings and elegant pumps for casual chic that still looks put-together.

Today we’re taking a look at the latest trend to slink its way into our wardrobes – lace. A long-time favourite, this spring sees lace return with a luxurious twist on our everyday essentials.
From all-over lace jackets to feminine accents on stylish shirts, the newest collection at Evans is designed to fit, flatter and inspire your shape. Update wardrobe essentials such as fitted jackets, leggings and blouses with beautiful lace details.
Whether for the daytime, evening or weekend, the Black Lace Jacket is the perfect accompaniment to any spring outfit. The unlined lace jacket has full length sleeves and a simple shawl collar, making it perfect to throw on over block colours for a contrast look, or to wear with a little black dress to add texture. Glam up a simple pair of jeans with this jacket for the evening, or wear it with jeggings and a jersey tee for a stylish daytime look.
New in from our latest brand at Evans is the feminine yet beachy cool Silk Shore collection. The Silk Shore Denim and Lace Blouse is a failsafe summer option, in a cosy light cotton denim with beautiful lace contrast panels at the shoulders. We love wearing ours unbuttoned with a lighter hued shirt underneath for an extra unique look. Finish the look with Silk Shore Coral Chino Trousers, another lightweight choice that is perfect for both early spring and high summer. The ditsy print waist tie adds a lovely hint of girly style while looking put-together for casual chic outfits.
Lace doesn’t have to equal ultra glam. We’ve got a look for every occasion, culminating in our lace casuals – for lazy Sunday afternoons, running errands or going for a coffee with your best friend, we love the Lace Trim Knit Top. Soft and cosy with a fine knit, this top is oh so versatile. Keep it casual and coordinated by pairing the longline top with Black Lace Trim Leggings - matching lace accents are perfectly stylish and effortless.

Denim is a girl’s best friend. Jeans make up our everyday outfits, and denim jackets are always on the spring style menu. From casual styles to darker, streamlined jeans, there is a denim variation for every occasion, every outfit, every day, and we’ve compiled our seasonal edit with the latest denim trends.
Select from skirts, classic jeans, comfy yet stylish jeggings, denim jackets and even denim shirts in our Denim Destination collection.
Find out how to style three of the more tricky key denim pieces with us:
Denim shirts are one of our favourite ways to update an outfit for the spring. Simply switch out your usual tailored and collared number for one of these denim shirts, and you’re good to go! We love the Evans Blue Dip Dye Chambray Shirt.
While the last of the chill is still hanging about though, why not try wearing the Evans Navy Woven Back Jumper on top to play down the denim, with the collar peeping out? Add some jeggings, a statement necklace and Evans Berry Ballerina Pumps for a casual chic look.
Our Head of Buying, Lowri, has already given us her lowdown on how to style printed denim for the spring with her monthly Facebook takeover. (Stay tuned for our next one!)
We love pairing this beautiful Evans Rose Print Denim Skirt with lighter hues and loose shapes for an elegant and on-trend look. You could even try the Evans Rose Print Straight Leg Jeans, which looks great on Apple and Busty shapes!
We think denim crops are going to be this season’s denim essential. Perfect for the warmer weather, these look great with a woven front top and the Evans Black Lace Jacket. Add these Evans Red Ruffle Flatforms or keep it casual with Evans Coral Laser-Cut Sandals.
Don’t forget, we also have a range of jeans and denim pieces designed especially for the Pear shape. Shop our Fitted for a Pear range here, and view our new Shape guide feature to find out even more fab outfit ideas.

Make sure you’re prepared for every sort of celebration with this comfortable and stylish look.

We love these Evans Nude Patent Rope Trim Pumps too, perfect for a comfy wear.
The Sunday Roast outfit
Being treated to a Sunday roast? Dress up for the occasion with the Evans Ivory Spot Print Top, a great choice for tapping into this season’s hottest monochrome trend. Teamed with these Evans Clean Wide Leg Jeans for a streamlined look and a pop of colour with the Evans Coral Metallic Heel Peeptoe Pumps, you’ll be the best dressed of the day.
Simple spring style
For a simple, springtime look, this Scarlett & Jo Poppy Print Dress is highly coveted by all and promises style and comfort. Flatter your shape by teaming it with a cosy Evans Cream Slub Cardigan and on-trend Evans Nautical Corsage Ballerina Pumps. We’d wear this to a Mother’s Day lunch or even to the park with the kids.
If you’re being whisked away for an evening occasion, we’ve got the ideal outfit for you. The Evans Black Lace Jacket is a standout, statement piece from our Spring catalogue and looks great paired with both block colours and beautiful prints. Try the Evans Grey Floral Print Dress to add colour and texture, and wear with these Evans Black Wedge Peeptoe Shoes to inspire confidence and extra height.

Continuing with the awards season, the Oscars 2013 had Evans HQ staring bleary-eyed at our TV screens on Sunday night, well into the early hours of Monday morning. Our quest? To spot our favourite plus size looks on the red carpet of course.
Our favourite looks this year were from the stunning Adele, who won her first Oscar, with ‘Skyfall’ picking up the award for ‘Best Original Song’. Adele wore a stunning Jenny Packham gown, with her hair perfectly coiffed in loose curled ends.
Adele also performed her award-winning song in a shorter number, set off with what we like to call Princess heels.
Another of our favourite looks from the red carpet was Melissa McCarthy’s beautiful dove grey number. Embellishments? Check. Flattering ruches? Check. The Bridesmaids star’s floor-sweeping gown was beautifully set off with a flush of rose to the cheeks, bouffant hair and a lace detail clutch.
Which Oscars look did you prefer?
Combining effortless seaside inspired textures with a fresh, feminine colour palette, Silk Shore launched at Evans this week and we couldn’t wait to share a peek of the new collection with you.
Silk Shore is a gorgeous (if we may say so ourselves) capsule collection of everyday spring essentials in signature coral, navy and sand hues. Perfect for leisurewear, holiday wear and everyday looks, we can’t wait to add to our SS13 wardrobes.
Finished with vintage inspired detailing, lace trims and prints to give the pieces a unique twist, soft blouses, stylish chinos and jersey cardigans create a modern silhouette. Each piece in the collection is created in cosy cotton and features the hallmark Silk Shore branded swallow embroidery – we like.
What do you think of the collection?
After a few weeks of hard work, we’re very excited to be able to share the launch of our brand new Evans ‘Style Your Shape, Shape Your Style’ feature. With a dedicated video for each of the four main body shapes, it has never been easier to learn how to dress for your shape.

We’ve got a special gift up our sleeves for you today. For a limited time only, we’re offering 20% off any item online.

For that effortless, casual chic look, don’t forget to invest in a pair of jeggings and a longline top. We love longline tops for their versatility and comfort, and the Evans Black Floral Back Shirt is a great choice. Looking just as good worn with a maxi skirt as the Evans Clean Pull On Jeggings (our personal favourite for weekend style), the black front panel streamlines and elongates the figure, while a yellow floral pattern adds easy chic. And of course we can’t forget these Evans Black Studded Ballet Pumps.
