Yumi City Style Guides: Playful in Paris

June 20, 2013



I’m Kitty – the writer at Suggestive Digestive. I’m a 24 year old dog-loving travel addict with a passion for pinup and vintage Rockabilly style, and 5-a-day Coffee habit. I also write kids books – I started the Suggestive Digestive blog as I work in Social Media, which involves loads of blogging – and wanted somewhere that I could write about anything I want!

I have lovingly penned this City Style Guide for Yumi as they elegantly combine two of my favourite things – quirky but cute fashion and Global style appeal! In the past few years, I’ve never traveled without a Yumi item in my case, and this series is in honor of their pan-continental versatility!

As one of the world-famous Fashion hubs, it’s not hard to believe that Paris is bubbling with an eclectic mix of styles – from très chic to beaucoup de bohemé – and anything in between! As an avid Paris visitor, I have tried my hand at more looks than you can shake a baguette at – and as much as I love the Chanel-inspired crispness of the traditional tailored French look, as a tourist, I think it’s much more practical (and fun) to go for the playful look.

Delicate pastels are a favourite for Parisian style – and these Yumi Scalloped Front Belted Shorts are adorable – and a wink to the more formal, suited-and-booted French look without becoming businesslike. I’d team it with the ultra-feminine Uttam Boutique Floral Blouse for an easy daytime look, worn with ballet flats and opaque tights.

Looking to do the local thing on your trip? Hire yourself a bicycle and see the city like a stereotype! What better way to traverse the Rues and Vies than wearing this quirky Yumi Bicycle Print Playsuit – cute enough to turn heads – practical enough to cycle without worrying about your modesty!

Hoping to have a bon nuit on your travels? You can’t go wrong emulating that continental charm with the floaty, fabulous Yumi Lace and Pleat Dress! The most amazing thing about this number is that it’s so flattering on any shape – I’m a curvier girl and the cut compliments a bigger bust like a real gent – but the high neckline is also great for a smaller frame!
Trust me, this dress is one to watch – I expect it will draw “Ooh La La’s” and “Oh Ho ho’s” in equal measure!

What would your signature French look be?
