    The Yumi A-Z Guide To Autumn/Winter Dressing: X-Z

    October 20, 2017

    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.

    If you missed last week’s blog post, click here to catch up on letters U-W.

    Its the final series of our blog posts and this week we are running through letters X-Z, so crack out the tinsel and baubles as its Xmas dresses season.  Yumi! Yumi! Yumi! We’ll be exploring our brand favourites and last but not least it’s all about the Zip Details!

    X for Xmas Dresses

    We cannot control our festive spirit! Sleigh bells are in the air, mince pies are in the oven and the office Christmas party invitation is on the kitchen side. It’s finally Xmas Dress season!

    Leave that stack of work in the office and blossom into the belle of the ball wearing this Cherry Blossom Mesh Dress. This fit and flare dress is perfect for a fashionable party look. Featuring an oriental inspired print sewn into the lightest of sheer mesh, the single button fastening on the back makes for a picture perfect finish. See in the festive celebrations by adding your fave heels and a clutch bag to this little black dress.



    It wouldn’t be a Christmas party without sparkles! Pair the Metallic Sheen Skater Dress with the Cascading Diamante Choker Necklace and become the disco to your ball! The irresistible metallic sheen material will reflect the silver diamantes, letting you glisten with every step. This dress features a complimentary V-neckline, fitted waist and a ready-to-dance pleated skirt. So don’t forget your Secret Santa present and tinsel because Yumi has you covered this festive party season!




    Y for Yumi

    Quirky quips, fiercely feminine, arty ideals, ageless elegance, bold prints and fearless fashion… these are the things that make Yumi….well..Yumi! For this part of the alphabet we will be introducing a few favourites straight from Yumi HQ. We are over the moon about the Magic Mountain Sweatshirt. Let your dreams come to print with this warm and whimsical long sleeve jumper. Perfect for watching your favourite band play live, pair it with black skinny jeans and colourful trainers.



    There must be sickness going around.. or perhaps its JUNGLE FEVER! The Oversized Leopard Print Faux Fur Coat is an absolute winter must-have. With a super soft exterior and cosy comfortable interior, this coat is made for bracing the icy winds whilst looking ferociously fabulous too! With a concealed button placket and pockets ready to warm up icy hands, this coat is practically purrrr-fect.


    Z for Zip Detail

    We have kept this final trend zipped away for too long! Zippers are no longer just for keeping your keys from falling out of your pocket, they are the statement of the season.

    Practicality meets perfection with the Textured Ponte Tunic. This timeless day dress comes in apricot and teal for a pop of colour and features short sleeves with a round neckline. The delicate detail on the zips add a feminine touch to this casual look.




    The Military Coat with Waist Detail will make sure you are braced for the winter with its soft exterior and even silkier interior! The clever zip detail brings a unique twist to the waist. Professional meets cosy with wide lapels and a symmetrical button finish. Pair these styles together with a pair of boot heels for a winter ready look.


    Well, that’s it from us on the A-Z for Autumn/Winter dressing. Stay tuned for our favourite trends and how to wear them this season!
