Autumn/Winter is officially here and we could not be more excited. With sunny skies and balmy climates slowly being replaced with darker evenings and chilly mornings, it’s time to revamp your wardrobe ready for a new season.
With this in mind, we’ve launched The Yumi A-Z Guide to Autumn/Winter Dressing. Each week we’ll be running through four letters of the alphabet and showing you how to perfect your seasonal style.
The first in a series of 6 blog posts, this week we’re running through letters A-D. Think accessories which will add to your outfits and rich burgundys that will have you feeling very autumnal. Learn about our plus size collection, Yumi Curves and find out why nothing else compares to a Yumi dress.
A for Accessories
Every woman knows that the right accessories can make or break an outfit. Firstly put the finishing touches to your Autumn/Winter style with new season scarves, jewellery and handbags. Whether you are looking to make your casualwear sparkle or want to channel Hollywood glamour, there’s an accessory for you.
The easiest way to accessorise your outfit is with a handbag or purse. An essential for every day, these brand-new styles will hold your cards, keys and lipstick with room to spare.
Fashion meets function with this on-trend Cherry Blossom Embroidered Tote Bag. The faux leather design features a handle with a detachable shoulder strap, outer zip for safety and inner compartments for lots of storage options.
If you’re looking to dazzle this festive season, add some extra-sparkle with a Cascading Diamante Choker Necklace. Adorned with beautiful diamantes all over and chic waterfall layers, it’s the perfect choice for festive parties and seasonal celebrations.
B for Burgundy
As the summer sun disappears and we make way to grey skies and crunchy leaves, fill your wardrobe with rich burgundies. The colour of the season, this on-trend warm colour is an essential as the nights get longer and the weather colder.
Feel super-autumnal in this Fit and Flare Textured Ponte Dress. The short sleeve skater dress features a unique lace bow at the back with side pockets and a flared skirt, perfect for twirling. Add your favourite heels and a metallic bag for a festive party look.
As we go into the winter months, this Velvet Pleated Skirt is a must-have. The on-trend midi length has been crafted with a luxuriously deep purple velvet and features an elasticated waistband for comfort. Wear with ribbed jumpers and ankle boots for a chic day look you can effortlessly transition to night.
C for Yumi Curves
Show off your figure and celebrate your curves in our plus size collection, Yumi Curves. Specially designed for ladies sized 18-26, this collection holds our most loved styles, shapes and exclusive prints. Proving that style has no size restrictions, you’ll find lots of new favourites.
Kick off the Autumn/Winter months in this Yumi Curves Mixed Floral Jersey Dress. It’s the perfect transitional piece as it features pops of bright colours. Boasting an array of floral patterns accentuated with warm burgundies and deep navy to keep it season appropriate, it is finished with a ruched knot to cinch the waist and a flattering V-neckline.
D for Dresses
If there’s one thing we know how to design, its dresses. Start the day off in a feminine floral dress, chic wrap dress or make a statement in a bold printed tunic. For festive events which require something extra special, our new season occasionwear and party dresses will add that extra sparkle.
What’s a Yumi dress without flowers? Just because Spring/Summer is over, it doesn’t mean your floral obsession has to be. Instead, give them a seasonal revamp with winter-inspired digital florals. This Floral Frill Tunic Dress has been designed in one of our best-selling signature shapes. Featuring a blurred botanical print against a dark backdrop, it is finished with vintage-inspired frills. Take this dress from your desk to after work drinks by swapping ankle boots for heels.
For pure Christmas party magic, opt for this Velvet Midi Dress. Expertly crafted with an iridescent velvet perfect for dance floor spotlights, it features tiered gathered ruchng for an elegant shape. Finished with flowing short sleeves and a V-neckline, wear it with ankle strap heels and a sleek clutch bag.
