More Evans stuff for you! I am really liking Evans clothes at the moment, having not gone too crazy in the sales I decided to treat myself to this jumper. I have always been drawn to things that are a bit different and this jumper was a breath of fresh air when I came across it whilst doing the 'new in' rounds! I must admit I did wait to buy it until I tried it on (I popped into Evans when I went up to London last week).
I have to say the sizing in Evans seems to have undergone a bit of an overhaul. this jumper is a size 18-20 and the jeans are size 20. The jumper is available here. I tried this size on in-store and wondered if it was too big, but then I tried on the 16 which did fit but didn't sit quite right, hence I went for the 18-20 in the end. I bought online in the 15% promotion, I also had a 10% off code which came in handy (basically it saved me the postage). If you are thinking of ordering from evans check style 369 as they carry some of the same styles but postage is free (sadly they didn't stock this jumper). The back "woven" material is pretty lightweight so I wore a top underneath for warmth but it feels lovely to wear and will be great in spring.
Incidentally the jeans are super stretch straight leg from Evans and I think they are great tucked into boots, they are closer to skinnys than straight leg but the super stretch means they don't go baggy around the bottom or crotch area, which is a problem that I often have with jeans. They are so comfy, alas they are pretty much sold out here (the reviews have binned them but I love them!). Still of you are close to a branch of Evans they might be worth a try. (still jeans are so personal so what's right for me might not be right for other folk!)
So overall wearability of this outfit was great, I sat in the car for a couple of hours, ran a quick errand into town (without a coat!), went to the pub, had a pub meal (no unbuttoning required!) and then sat in the car for another couple of hours! Temperature control was great in all those places.
