Party outfit for under £100 - Evans Edition
We've done Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and M&S so far, and now it's time for Evans to come under the microscope. Stocking from sizes UK16 to UK32, Evans offers outfits for those of us with curvier shapes (that's me!) without a loss of style - but can they do it for under £100, with accessories and shoes included?
To see how they fared, keep reading after the cut...
When you've got a curvier shape, it can be difficult to dress in a way that makes you feel both chic and fashionable. For this outfit, I kept things simple in colour, but with some more luxurious fabrics, with a touch of glitter, to add a little sparkle.
I chose a black satin pencil skirt, because it's a shape that can be worn by any woman to great effect. It's a dulled satin, so it won't be quite so unforgiving, and comes in at a reasonable £35. For the top, I chose a quirky, short-sleeved blouse in embossed satin, and as it tucks in under the bust and then kicks out to the hips, it'll gloss over any 'problem tummies'. The capped sleeve is also a miracle-worker - widening your shoulders, which magically reduces your waist - all this for a bargain £30!
To accessorise, I chose a sparkly pewter-on-black clutch for that seasonal sparkle, a steal at £10; and a moderately-heeled, patent, brogue-esque shoe, for a bit of height and 30s glam, coming in at £25.
All in all, this is a look that could take you from the office to a night on the town; and that will create a gorgeous feminine shape! At £100 total, I'd say that's money well spent!
