We can hardly believe that we’re halfway through August already. Time flies when you’re having fun and when the British summer offers us some heat, sunshine and reasons to get the family round for a barbecue!
It’s time, however, to turn our attention to sleepwear. Believe it or not, it’s nearly time to think about those cosier evenings in after a long day at work/running errands/baking/battling the rain (delete as appropriate!). We’ve refreshed our sleepwear collection at Evans to incorporate classic colours, girly colours, cute motifs and feminine designs – whichever look you’re opting for, we’ve got it covered in cosy cotton.
Here’s our office favourites:
Navy Check Nightshirt (£25)
Navy Heart Print Long Nightdress (£23.50)
Rosebud Print Short Nightdress (£19.50)
Grey Bunny Short Nightdress (£19.50)
Heart Print Pyjama Set (£27)
Grey Stripe Short Nightdress (£19.50)
Complete your look with fabulously fitted plus size lingerie in cups B-H, sizes 38-50.
Back in May, we visited the bright lights of New York City to get involved in Full Figured Fashion Week. (See our photo diary here.) We shopped, we met customers, we chatted fashion with plus size bloggers and even showcased our AW13 collection. But more importantly, we got to spend a day with the beautiful Kaela Humphries, who’s the face of Evans.
Watch our video with Kaela below to steal her style and beauty tips:

At the top of our style stakes this week is Rebel Wilson. We loved this look that she wore whilst on her TCA Summer Press Tour. Side panels? Bodycon? A sweet mid-sleeve? So Scarlett & Jo.
Even though the sun is beaming down and we’ve still got plenty of beachside road trips penned into the diary, it’s already time for us to turn our attention to knitwear and layers. Cosy ones.
We’re currently lusting over the latest drop of light knitwear to hit Evans, each more perfect than the last to team with a collar, simple jeans and your favourite footwear.
Grey Swing Tunic Jumper (£23)
Ah shoes. It’s a love hate obsession with shoes in our books at the moment. Do we cower from the rainstorms with boots or keep the faith in our summer sandals? We just don’t know. What we do know however is that this week, we’ve added plenty of shoe styles to our collection to ensure you’re stepping out in perfect style for every weather, every occasion, every day.
The Colourblock Low Heeled Shoes (£32) are one of our favourite pairs – elegant and stylish with a retro 60s kick, they look amazing paired with a shift dress, a pair of hold-me-in tights and a beehive hairdo, Adele style.
On the other side of the spectrum, we’re also loving the Brown Asymmetric Elastic Long Boots (£65). With our hallmark elasticated calf panel to adapt and stretch to all calf sizes, they are seriously stylish in a sort of heritage way, right? Wear with jeggings, a check shirt and a red lipstick.
At Evans, we’ve aim to offer the best plus size fashion with our exclusive brands that create clothing to perfectly accentuate your shape. Taking inspiration from the latest catwalk trends and marrying this with Evans’ fit and shape expertise, Live Unlimited is a modern yet timeless range to give your look some edge.
Live Unlimited is a London-based brand, focusing on trend-led collections in exclusive prints that encompass luxe style. Expect day-to-night pieces that won’t look out of place in an office or for a big night out. Live Unlimited’s new collection is available exclusively at Evans and includes must have lace bikers, statement print leggings and stand-out tops to take you from summer to autumn.
The double layer top with a touch of sheer is becoming a Live Unlimited style classic. Wear with leggings for summer and switch to dark denim for autumn to make the most of this beautiful shape and deep claret red colour.
If you buy one statement piece for autumn/winter 2013, then make it this lace biker jacket. You will find that this jacket goes with everything and is perfect to throw on over skater dresses or paired with crisp jeans.
Live Unlimited prints are all one of a kind and will give a high-fashion style statement to your wardrobe. We love this X-Ray print top with a split back that adds an extra luxe design element to a simple top shape. Wear with black straight leg jeans and platform ankle boots for an up to date new season look.
What’s your favourite Live Unlimited piece to see you from summer to autumn?
Did you know? We have a weekly Limited Offer on our website where you can grab an exclusive discount on a must-have piece.
Printed motif tees are a wardrobe staple. We’ve updated a classic ivory number with a gorgeous floral inspired heart on the front. Why not try wearing yours tucked into high waist jeans, or with a maxi skirt?
So Friday’s here, payday is here – time to celebrate in style with our Friday night outfit picks. Whether you’re planning a catch-up meal with the girls or have a night out on the cards, we’ve got the perfect look up our sleeves…
Take style notes from the spring/summer’s Aztec trend with our Neon Yellow Trim Printed Top (£27). Pairing a gorgeous understated Aztec print on a chiffon base, we love the striking yellow trims that exude Alexander Wang’s NYC aesthetic. Tuck it into the Live Unlimited Black Hareem Trousers (£40) to showcase curves and a nipped-in waist, and finish the look with COLLECTION White Leather Sporty Flatforms (£39.50).
For something a little more feminine and a little dramatic, what is better than a maxi? Choose the Black Tube Maxi Skirt (£25), a figure-hugging and trend led number. Formed of a cosy layered jersey, it is extra comfortable with a high elastane blend. Tuck the Blue Feather Print Tunic (£37) in and add a stud effect belt, and complete your Friday night outfit with Black Band Block Heels (£32).
We’re huge fans of the versatile capsule wardrobe. With this week’s White Damask Print T-Shirt (£19.50) at the top of our shopping list, we’ve put together two ways that you can style the casual number whilst the British heatwave is in full swing.
Look One is simple and perfect for combating the heatwave. Our Lightwash Denim Crop Jeans (£19.50) complement the blue and foil motif perfectly and are the perfect fit as well, just read the rave reviews. Pair with the COLLECTION Black Leather Leaf Sandals, add the Metal Bead Necklace (£16.50) and paint your nails in a coral hue to finish the summer look.
For those pesky errand running days, Look Two features a dramatic Black Tube Maxi Skirt (£25) is super comfortable in a jersey fabric. We’re pairing ours with the new in Black Two-Part Glitter Sandals (£25) for office, and you could even tuck the tee in to accentuate shapely figures. Add the Crackle Stone Ring (£8.50) for a conversational piece that adds a hint of colour.
