Black is one of my favourite colours to wear. I love nothing more than wearing all black, it makes me feel sophisticated and is definitely one of the easiest colours to wear. Since I began blogging, I've made a conscious decision to limit myself in terms of the black clothing I wear. Now don't get me wrong, I love my mad vibrant colours and I love being all girly in pink or all summery in neon but sometimes a girls got to go back to what she loves.
With the weather becoming increasingly colder, I feel myself reaching more and more for the black in my wardrobe. It's just effortless, and especially good for me, as I'm most definitely not a morning person, and always want to look somewhat put together. So I've come to a little compromise with myself. I've decided if I wear black and don't feel like adding a brighter colour I should mix grey in with it, giving me an equally sophisticated look. I decided to conjure up and outfit that I'd wear, and how I'd incorporate grey in with black. This outfit is all sourced from Evans, and I'm not going to lie, I'm a little bit in love with it.
So tonight while doing my usual browsing of all the online retailers, I felt myself clicking on Evans. Now I've a bit of a love/hate relationship with them. I find their clothes can at times be dowdy, and just not as fashion forward as I desire. Of course this is down to personal preference as I love fast fashion and am really trend led in terms of the clothing I like. I often see other bloggers rocking Evans(and looking only gorgeous!), clothes so I think maybe I haven't given them enough of a chance. Their recent collaborations with Clements Ribeiro is just wonderful and a great step for plus size retailers, and has to be highly commended. Truth be told nothing really has ever popped out at me,if it wasn't in a collaboration.
But my mind has been changed. I really love the coat and this instantly stood out to me. It definitely has a designer vibe to it and for under £50, you can't go wrong! I think this would be great to add to a plain black outfit, as it gives it a little lift, yet retaining a more muted look. I also love the ankle boots(with wider fitting, thank you!) and the Sheer "Cold Shoulder Top" which definitely is fashion forward!I would feel a million bucks in this outfit and all items are definitely on my Santa list, so Evans, I want to apologise for writing you off so soon :)
Guys, what are you loving in Evans at the moment? :)
