Throughout my childhood, as an overweight teenager, Evans used to muster up horrible feelings when it came to buying clothes. There weren’t many other alternatives when it came to clothes shopping if you were over a size 16, and apart from their Seven range, they always seemed to make tent like clothing that really didn’t flatter, especially a teenager. Evans have really upped their game since then and now offer a number of gorgeous on trend clothing ranges that start at a size 14. Their brands section is of particular interest to me with pretty Scarlett and Jo dresses and new lines such as That Day.
I had a good look through the Jeans & Denim section of their site, which by the way is so easy to use! I’m a bigger fan of darker blue/indigo coloured denim so I settled my choice on the Evans Indigo Super Stretch Jeans in a size 14. When they arrived I was certain I’d made the right choice. The quality of the fabric was a lot heavier than my previous Select Fashion rejects and the zip looked a lot stronger. They are more expensive at £29.50, however I think they will last for a long time so the cost is relative (providing I don’t drop down to a 12 and they become too big eek!). These jeans are unfortunately sold out in many sizes on the Evans Clothing website, but were available in sizes 14 to 32, so keep an eye out for restocking! There is a similar style in black available in sizes 20 upwards here.
What I like about jeans is that you can wear them with a hoodie as a completely casual look or you can dress them up with a pair of heels and the right jewellery. This look is one that works for day or night and I love the contrast in colours. I teamed my new jeans with a maroon coloured lace detailed top that I picked up in the sale from Select, and a pair of matching spike heels that were from a little shop in Berlin back in 2007. My statement necklace is last seasons pick from New Look.
We also had a bit of fun with an old fashioned camera, which I’m ashamed to say I had no idea how to hold until Phil showed me!
