When you’re online shopping, do you wish that you’d be able to touch the fabrics, find out how the garments fit, or just to have general styling advice? Well, Evans has recently launched an online Shape Stylist-service on their site, and this gives you a chance to talk to someone and ask questions and recommendations. All the stylists are actual store staff, so they have seen and felt the clothes in real life and can give you great pointers on the fit and styling.
Evans offered me a chance to try this service and to review the outfit I ordered after the chat. As I know my style, and what kind of fit I need for different parts of my body, I thought that it would be quite problematic for me to use this service.. But I decided to have an open mind and give it a try.
When you go to the Evans website on times when stylist service is available you see a banner on the right that asks if you want style advice. If you click that, a chat-window opens and tells you the name of your stylist. My stylist was Vicky, and because of the fact that I know my style and what I actually wanted to my wardrobe, I gave her quite specific questions and tasks. I told her that I’m looking for a bright winter coat, skinny jeans that would actually be proper skinny on the legs, and a nice sweater to go with them. Vicky politely asked me to wait and said she’ll have a look and send me links soon.
First she sent me towards a pale coral collarless coat, which was lovely, but I said that I would prefer one that is possibly even brighter and has a collar. Then she sent me a link to this orange beauty, and I was sold. I asked her about the fit, and told her that I have a big belly and small shoulders, and she recommended me to go for the size for my shoulders and just wear it open. For the jeans Vicky told me about Evans’ new Ultra Stretchy Skinny Jeans, and sent me a link to the blue pair. I asked what colours it came in and decided to go with the black. Vicky also adviced me to size up one size, as the jeans come a bit small. These jeans come in short, regular and long lengths. I went with short, and the length is exactly right for me (I rolled them up for this outfit though). They also are very skinny on the leg, but personally I’d like the ankle to be a bit tighter still.. But still definitely the skinniest jeans that I have managed to find – thank you Evans! As for the sweater I mentioned to Vicky that I saw some cute ones in Cosmo, and she sent me a link to this sweater, and she also adviced me to take my usual size (but I ended up taking one size up, as I wanted a baggy look). I still had some money left in my budget and I asked Vicky for some recommendations for bracelets and rings (as we both agreed that necklace wouldn’t be needed because of the sequin detail of the sweater). She sent me several links and I decided to go with this ring stack. We both thought that this combination would be a cute outfit, and here it is for you to see. I just added orange lipstick, a pair of fringed ankle boots and a long top underneath the sweater, otherwise it is the one Vicky and I chose. What do you think?
