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.
Our Head of Buying, Lowri, talks through every shape, taking away the guesswork when it comes to colour, cuts and styles. Check out the videos here and below and don’t forget to let us know what you think!
If you’re not sure of your body shape, don’t forget to check out our Shape Calculator, and update your details on our website to receive tailormade shape advice in your email inbox.
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. Whether you’re looking for a new top for a special occasion, a dress for your girls’ night out, or simply want a pre-payday treat, check out our outfit ideas and get inspired to refresh your wardrobe.
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.
Girls’ Night Out
Heading out to celebrate with your friends? Make sure you (and your friends) are the centre of attention with a fabulous new outfit. This Scarlett & Jo Black Crochet Collar Dress has a gorgeous sheer stripe sleeve and stunning crochet collar. We love wearing ours with classic Evans Red Block Heel Mary Jane Court Shoes to inspire colour and elegance with a quirky style twist.
The Indulgent Treat
We’re nearing the end of a busy month, so it’s time to put your feet up, grab your Evans iPhone app and treat yourself to a new outfit for the new season. The Evans Blue Dip Dye Chambray Shirt is oh so stylish and perfect to layer up. It adds plenty of style credentials to your look in one simple piece, so team with these Evans Indigo Straight Leg Jeans and a statement Evans Black Studded Biker Jacket for an indulgent pre-payday treat.

Awards season is in full swing, London Fashion Week has just closed its doors until September, and today at Evans HQ, we’re mostly coveting dresses and all things feminine and glamorous. Call it our pre-BRITs celebration, if you will.
From retro inspired shift dresses to beautifully printed designs, and on-trend shirt dresses to stylish dipped hem options, there is a dress for everyone in the new Spring/Summer collection. Let us show you our wardrobe must-haves and how we’re planning on styling dresses for the warmer months.
The Evans Bird Print Skater Dress is a fun and casual dress for everyday wear. We love the dainty bird print and on-trend monochrome colour palette, and we’re wearing it with the Evans Cream Slub Cardigan, cosy tights and our Evans Scallop Edge Pumps which have barely left our feet. Perfect for the office and for the weekend. We like.
With a military inspired button finish, the Evans Woven Yoke Shirt Dress went down a storm at our Evans Shape Studio last month. Teamed with gold accessories and the Evans Black Metallic Heel Peeptoe Pumps, this look is ideal for dates and dinners.
Finally, to inspire some colour and print to our wardrobes, the Evans Grey Floral Print Dress is a firm favourite in the office. Whether worn with sandals or wedge heels, this grey and purple floral print dress makes a fabulously versatile addition to the wardrobe, with a flattering scoop neckline and elasticated waist.
How will you be wearing your dresses this season? Which of these looks is your favourite? Let us know in the comments – and happy BRITs viewing tomorrow evening!
With London Fashion Week and Plus Size Fashion Weekend hot on our heels, we thought we’d turn our hand to sharing what we’re wearing this season at Evans HQ. Styling trends from monochrome to colourblock, contrast panels and sheer textures, see what our ladies recommend from the spring/summer collection:
Carina says: This outfit is perfect for those weeks between winter and spring. I love the stylish grey and black colour combination, while the multicolour knit and contrast coat adds extra interest by mixing lots of great textures. The electric blue court shoes finish the look and add a fresh burst of colour.
Nimet says: I love the way my sheer leopard print shirt looks with my biker jacket and these high waisted jeans give me a lovely silhouette. A pop of colour is a must for spring so I’d add these coloured courts and match some bright orange lipstick to finish my look.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought we’d bring you an edit of our favourite pieces for the most romantic time of the year. Whether you’re spending time with your friends, staying in and relaxing, or are going to be celebrating with a loved one, we have a fabulous outfit idea for every occasion.
The Dinner Date
If you’re headed to your favourite restaurant, dress to impress with simple yet elegant separates. We love this Grey Lace Trim Shirt this season. Monochrome is the only trend to be seen in, and with a gorgeous vertical lace front, Apple and Busty shapes will love the streamlining effect. Pair it with a Peplum Hem Skirt and stylish Black Fashion Court Shoes or the Black Metal Bow Wedge Shoes, depending on your heel preference. We can’t decide between them!
The Cinema Trip
Cinema dates are an old classic. With the lights down low, comfy seating and a tub of popcorn in hand, comfy looks are a must for your evening. The Leopard Front Jumper is perfect for inspiring simple style: throw on with a pair of jeggings and these ultra feminine Scallop Edge Pumps for a cosy night at the movies.
Equally a date favourite and a date nightmare, the Surprise Date is notoriously hard to prepare for. Cover all bases with the Blue and Black Placement Print Top, a stunning floral woven front choice that will look just as good on a night in as it will on a romantic walk, although throw the Grey Bird Print Tunic in your bag in case the temperature dips. Dark jeans are ultra flattering and ideal for all occasions, and opt for the gorgeous Red Block Heel Mary Jane Court Shoes.
If you’re suspect to a more formal evening ahead, we love the Scarlett & Jo Animal Print Lace Yoke Top. The black lace panel and sleeves are stylish and comfy. Team with Jersey Smoothing Wide Leg Trousers and Neon Colourblock Platform Courts, but pop some ballerina pumps in your bag, ‘just in case’.
Don’t forget, we have free nominated day UK delivery until 6pm on Wednesday 13th February 2013 when you spend over £60.

Some may say that it’s the most romantic time of the year. Reds and pinks dominate the colour palette on and off the high street, and you would be pretty hard pushed to step foot in a shop without finding something adorned in a quirky heart print.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a loved one, or are planning on leaving some hints for the other half, with a week to go until Valentine’s Day, we’ve compiled a gift guide for the 14th.
The perfect Valentine’s treat arrives in the form of our newest releases from Alex Monroe for Evans. Choose from delicate gold leaf wrap rings to cameo necklaces, or an elegant leaf bracelet.
Matching lingerie sets at Evans are an ideal Valentine’s gift. Choose from matching sets that offer support and comfort, whilst looking ultra feminine and flattering for the shape. We love the Evans Pink Pintuck Satin Bra set.
For some heart inspired jewellery, the Facet Heart Ditsy Necklace is available in two colours, and there’s a matching bracelet too. Perfect for adding a whimsical, girly look to any outfit.
Opting for a themed knit to see you through the Valentine’s season? The Evans Heart Motif Jumper in black or grey is ideal for dressing to look the part, whatever you’re up to. Wear yours with a collared shirt and coloured jeggings (we’d go for red!).
Shop the Valentine’s feature, or view our Valentine’s Day Pinterest board for more inspiration.
