It may still be dark and miserable January, but fashion is helping to brighten up the days just a little. The new designer ad campaigns hit the glossies this month, and now the High Street are starting to look towards spring, and the promise of warmer days. In the next few weeks I am going to be introducing my favourite items from the Spring/Summer High Street. First up is Evans. Evans is a godsend for anyone, who, like me, happens to be larger than a size 12. It features fabulous ranges of clothing that start from a size 14, along with exquisite fashion jewellery and shoes that come in e and eee wider fits.
The new collection harks back to the 1970’s, and has a country/boho feel to it. Chunky heels, earthy colours and natural fabrics are all featured. along with a stunning range of cuff style bracelets and chunky bangles. Think Debra Winger in Urban Cowboy, and early millennium Sienna Miller. I love the collection, it is timeless, and instantly wearable. Here are my favourite pieces, arranged as I would wear them.
Look 1-Olivia Palermo styled outfit.
I adore this paisley print dress. This is a dress that could be worn with flip-flops, or high-heeled sandals. The chunky sandals give this a 70’s look, with the chunky wooden bangles and fringe bag adding to the vibe. This would look equally as good with a brown suede clutch bag and gold jewelled thong sandals. The whole look has been added to my summer shopping list, although you could wear this dress now with chunky tights and an Arran style vintage cardigan if you just can’t wait for warmer weather! I can see the super stylish Olivia Palermo wearing this outfit.
This outfit is perfect for warm spring/summer days. The white dress is girlie, but it can be dressed down by wearing these amazing toepost sandals, and a faded denim jacket. If that is still too girlie, how about adding some Doc Martens, for that early 1990’s grunge vibe. The stunning cuff would be a major talking point, adding vintage glamour to a perfect outfit. Think Steel Magnolias, Urban cowboy and boho style Sienna.
