    It’s in the detail

    May 24, 2017

    It’s no secret that here at Yumi HQ, we love all things printed, embellished and detailed. Seen on the SS17 catwalks and showing no signs of slowing down, dresses with detail is a key trend this season. Whether you’re looking to make an entrance with head-to-toe embroidery or want to keep it classic and feminine by opting for ruffles, we’ve created an easy to follow guide showing you how to incorporate these fashion favorites into your wardrobe.

    In stitches for embroidery

    In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that embroidery has made a massive impact in the fashion world. Seen everywhere and on everyone, it’s the trend we can’t get enough of. Easy to dress up or down, this intricate detail can elevate an outfit and update your wardrobe ready for the new season.

    We’re obsessing over this navy embroidered dress. Falling above the knee, the sleeveless skater dress is adorned with delicately stitched poppies all over. Finished with a detachable waist belt and a zip fastening down the back, it’s the perfect piece to welcome you into the world of detail.

    Ruffles made for frill seekers

    Beautifully chic and feminine, ruffles and frills are no longer reserved for the contestants on Toddler and Tiaras. Loved by fashion houses like Gucci, Miu Miu and Vivienne Westwood, ruffles help to create movement and drama whilst being soft and romantic.

    This sleeveless pale blue dress is a winning choice for formal events or romantic occasions. Falling above the knee, the elegant lace design is adorned with frill detailing along the neckline. Who knew making a statement could look this good?

    All about lace

    Keeping in tune with the previous detail, lace is a Spring/Summer essential. Once associated with brides or designed with weird sheer panels that caused us all kinds of underwear stress, lace has grown up and has fast become a favorite.

    If dresses aren’t your thing, a jumpsuit is a great alternative. This navy one is perfect for special events whilst remaining sophisticated and effortless. The sleeveless design features floral lace paneling across the chest and down the back, ruching towards the center, a tie waist belt and straight legs.

    Embellishments that sparkle

    Whoever thought sparkle was reserved for New Years Eve clearly never got the memo about embellishments. Whilst lovers of minimalism may take some convincing, this trend can easily be added into your seasonal wardrobe.

    This fruity cardigan is the perfect mix for fashion and function. The pure cotton design features jeweled pineapples down the center with a textured finish. A great piece to layer over shirts, dresses and jumpsuits; it will fast become an outfit staple.
