    Yumi Style Edit: What We’re Wearing in August

    August 7, 2020

    Year on year, August never fails to be the most fruitful month for our wardrobes. With September and July still visible in the peripheral, our beloved eighth month acts as a season finale for our summer finds.

    This year is no different either (contrary to popular belief). Despite our stolen summer leaving us feeling a little hard done by this year, there’s still every reason to invest in pieces to see us through the month and perhaps even further. And since our diaries are full with invites to picnics, BBQs and socially distanced get-togethers, it feels like the right time to reclaim what’s ours and make sure this summer doesn’t go to waste.

    This month, we’ve made the transition into the in-between months a little easier by adding season-defying midi and shirt dresses to our list. So even if you’re feeling a little uneasy about what to choose, we’ve hand-picked pieces that’ll surpass every weather. Keep scrolling for our Yumi inspiration.

    Find your floral

    Green Sketchy Rose Midi Dress

    A floral dress is an obvious choice for August, but nonetheless a worthy winner. This midi dress offers a relaxed cut for easy breezy walks and a peplum hemline for extra movement. Enhanced with a super-chic sketchy print, it’s one to layer for the cooler months ahead.

    Smart move

    Green Plus Size Spotted Shirt Dress

    With a nod to the 60s thanks to the polka dot print, this shirt dress features a cool button front and a tie running around the waist to secure your shape. But if that wasn’t enough, it’s also detailed with pockets on the waist (hello functionality).

    Sleek cuts

    Teal Snakeskin Military Jumpsuit

    For those who like a low-key look and are partial to a touch of versatility, opt for this jumpsuit. In a hybrid shape that shows off a shirt bodice and culotte trousers, it’s designed with everyone’s favourite animal print and silky-smooth fabric.

    Frilly details

The fluid fabric and tiered silhouette work together to guarantee a dramatic look and is supported by ruffle sleeves and a paisley print. The perfect finishing touch?

    It’s back
