The skater dress is still one of our favourite pieces. What can we say? We’re creatures of habit. Whether worn for a shopping date, for work, or even for a gorgeous evening look – see how we’re styling the skater dress at Evans HQ today.
For the day
Great for the day, the Red Skater Dress (£29.50) is a lovely stretch jersey dress that we love teaming with a classic Black Denim Jacket (£35). Whether out with the girls for a spot of lunch or to run errands, your autumnal look is never complete until you add a pair of boots, right? We adore the Black Leather Buckle Detail Long Boots (£95), gorgeously girly yet tough at the same time and with expandable calf panels to make sure you have the perfect fit.
For the evening
Give your look a quick switch with glitter flecked boots: we adore the Black Glitter Mix Ankle Boots (£45) that have 4mm added padding for that much-needed comfort. Pair them with our Black Floral Lace Tights (£8) especially designed for the fuller figure, and add the Black Notch Detail Lace Jacket (£45) to pull the whole look together. Perfect.

Buying Long Boots
From classic riding boots to elegant knee highs, the versatile and reliable long boot is an essential for the autumn/winter months. The Black Leather Long Boots (£95) are sure to last you the season in a durable leather. Look out for the expandable calf panels and adjustable buckles too – great to ensure the perfect fit. The Brown Asymmetric Elastic Long Boots (£65) are a beautiful wearable tan with elasticated panels at the calf for an even better fit.
Day-to-Night Heeled Boots
For a style statement, trend led addition to your footwear wardrobe, footwear by Evans has been updated to include gorgeous day-to-night worthy numbers. A girl can never have too many shoes, right? The Black Platform Ankle Boots (£45) are great for toughening up a look and they look amazing styled with a shift dress, a statement necklace and red lips. Each of our heeled boots also boast 4mm added padding for extra comfort, and some have flexible soles too. The Oxblood Patent Trim Shoe Boots (£35) are next up on our wishlist.
Buying Flat Ankle Boots
Practical and stylish, we still can’t get enough of the flat ankle boot. We adore the Oxblood Leather Studded Chelsea Boots (£55) which feature elasticated panels that stretch to adapt to a wider ankle, with an on trend colour palette and gold stud details. Perfect for inspiring a quintessentially British style. If you’re after a comfortable choice, we love the Black Comfort Fit Ankle Boots (£45) – they have a moulded sole and added padding, meaning optimum all day comfort.

The Shanghai Red edit at Evans is a trend led collection, allowing you to make a style statement with Far Eastern prints and embellishments. Shop a Shanghai-inspired look for every shape and occasion…
Bursts of scarlet red and orchid prints combine in the Black Oriental Embellished Top (£45). Add a glitter black cover up, leggings and red ballerina pumps to complement the colour palette. We also love the Black Lace Cuff Leggings (£14) to tie the look together and these all-occasion worthy Red Patent Bow Trim Ballerina Pumps (£25).
Perfect for everyday style statements.
Offset the red trend with just a pop of colour at the wrist. We adore the print on this Fan Print Cover Up (£35), paired with an Ivory Embellished Hanky Hem Top (£39.50), kitten heels and a pair of perfectly fitted jeans.
Perfect for evening occasions.
Keep things ultra glam with black and flashes of glitter, and use the cherry blossom print tunic as a focal piece. The Black Oriental Floral Print Tunic (£35) and Black Sequin Tie Front Shrug (£29.50) are perfectly paired together.
Perfect for extra glamorous plans.

Learn how to style the biker jacket and add some attitude to your wardrobe this autumn/winter. We adore the biker jacket for its’ versatile ways and effortless ability to up our style credentials.
To the pub Keep it casual with an animal print top and flat ankle boots to complement tough biker jackets. We adore the way it toughens up a girly, peplum-esque shape. Matched with Black Studded Cowboy Boots (£39.50), the outfit is perfect for impromptu pub evenings and a few casual drinks.
To work You could even pair a biker jacket with your work outfits. Offset girlish lace and bow details with our Black Diamond Quilted PU Jacket (£65) to offer comfort, warmth and style. The Black Glitter Bow Ballerina Pumps (£25) and classic trousers are instantly refreshed with a hint of biker chic.
For shopping with the girls Finally, shopping with the girls demands two things in an outfit 1) go get ‘em style, and 2) relaxed, comfy chic. After all, shopping requires maximum effort and focus. We adore the Grey Short Sleeve Skater Dress (£35) paired with sturdy Black Leather Military Biker Boots (£79.50). With a biker jacket on top, you’ll be perfectly cosy and on trend too.
