Brrrr it would appear it’s time to layer up, as despite still being Autumn, the temperature seems to have suddenly dropped! Never fear though, as it gives us the perfect opportunity to wrap up warm and keep toasty in this season’s must-have winter coats! We’ve searched high and low for our favourites, and we think these Yumi.co.uk lovelies are two of the best that AW15 has to offer. With check patterns and faux fur galore, both coats are effortlessly on trend and are just so blooming cosy. Just look how snug we are! Mmmm, snug.
I (Victoria) am wearing the Oversized Cheversizedck coat*, which just had to be mine as I am obsessed with all things yellow and grey. I was a little worried about it’s loose shape, as whenever I’ve tried on oversized coats before I’ve felt swamped, but I’ve had so many compliments about this one. The colours are much more vivid IRL, and it’s honestly the warmest thing I’ve ever worn. It’s definitely going to see me through winter. Underneath my woolly cocoon, I’m wearing the jazzy Contrast Stripe Shirt Dress*. I love it, it’s like all of the colours got together for a groovy abstract bender. There is no better way to compliment any dress and coat combo than with a pair of classic brown Chelsea Boots*, so that’s exactly what I did.
Jo’s rocking the lush Faux Fur Collar Swing Coat*, in a beautiful shade of blue. Unfortunately, the smaller sizes are currently sold out, but don’t feel blue, it’s also available in black! Hooray! I love the coat’s 1960’s inspired shape and think it looks perfect with tan lace up boots and the Building Block Day Dress*, which is a dress we’ve had our eyes on since Double Thumbs Dresses #60. The apartment print features babies in prams, dogs, cats, bunting, and even teeny tiny satellite dishes! It’s definitely in the running for AW15’s ‘Best Novelty Dress’. A highly coveted accolade.
Look out for our outfits coming up on Yumi’s blog soon!
