My Look At Cut For Evans

I have blogged plenty about Cut For Evans, so this is a very picture heavy post! I don't actually love these photos - I had been to have my eyebrows done just before and had taken all my face make up off - booo!! But anyway, I finally got the chance to go to Evans at Marble Arch and thought I would try some of the Cut for Evans stuff on - so, here you go!



I really like the fit of the skirt and it feels like great quality! I would probably style it differently to how it was designed though, and wear it a bit shorter (see right hand picture)


The cardigan didn't suit me as much as I hoped, but I do still love it!


I love the skirt - but again, I would probably wear it shorter than it was designed.

I spoke to the staff at Evans and they said the Cut For Evans collection had gone down well - YAY! What I love about the collection is that you can style it as bold or as subtle as you like.


Do you have any Cut For Evans stuff yet?

Cut For Evans - The Marmite Effect

You might have read that earlier this week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Cut For Evans launch. For me, seeing the clothes on proper bodies rather than a mannequin was a massive step forward. The clothes look great on the website but seeing them on people made all of the difference.

The Cut For Evans is a massive step forward & a huge leap from anything Evans have really done in the past - so I get that it will split opinion but I didn't realise quite how much it would. I made the 'mistake' of reading some of the comments on the Evans Facebook page after the launch, and I was flabbergasted at some of the comments left.




I 'like' how lots of different women commented about how they wouldn't/shouldn't/couldn't wear the collection because of their size - as if this was a blanket rule for everyone. We work so hard to prove that fashion is inclusive of all sizes and comments like this really set it so far back! Thankfully Evans have deleted lots of the really negative comments but it means that I can't quote them here - sorry!

Anyway - I have seen LOADS of women in these clothes and I think they look fab. I have loved seeing different women, with different shapes and their own individual styles wearing these outfits - so I thought I would share them with you. I can understand if the Cut For Evans range is not for you, but I don't know how anyone can say that this range is 'hideous' across the board... Look at these fierce, fabulous fatties rocking the range....

Personally I think each of the girls look amazing in their outfits, however even if you don't I can't see how you can say that as a blanket response to the collection that it doesn't look good on big bodies or that it hasn't been designed with larger girls in mind - because the vastly different shapes and sizes shown above show that it can mostly definitely be rocked if you want to!

What do you think of the collection?

Cut For Evans - Exciting New Collection

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the Evans store at Marble Arch for the launch of their new Cut For Evans collection. You can read all about the collection on the website, but basically it was an initiative that allowed two fashion students to design their own collection. You can read all about it here.



Being just a small fish in a very big pond, I always get a little nervous at attending these events, but I had a great time. If you love big, bold prints and unapologetic splashes of colour then this collection is well and truly for you.

There are two sides to the collection, the big, bold prints and a really funky knitwear collection (including a knitted skirt that I fell a little in love with). The collection was on display in the store and it was great to see loads of the bloggers and guests trying the items on - seeing them on bodies rather than hangers made a massive difference.




I'll be honest and say at first glance this collection isn't really 'me'. Don't get me wrong, I love the collection and I think it's amazing that Evans would take a massive leap into this, but I couldn't see anything when I looked on the website that I would wear. Now that I have seen the collection, felt the items and seen people wearing them, my views have definitely changed. I was always excited by this new Evans collection, but now I am excited because I can see how I would wear a few of the items - and I'll be investing when I get the chance for sure!



I love that plus size retailers are listening to the fact that we don't all want big tunic tops and trousers to flatter our figure. We want to stand out, we want figure hugging, fitted, bright patterns and everything that 'normal' fashion lovers want, hopefully the new Cut For Evans collection is the first step in the right direction to making this happen!




The event was great and I got to meet lots of my favourite bloggers which is always lovely!




Have you looked at the Cut For Evans collection? What are you loving about it?
