The 5 Outfits You Can Dress Up Or Down

Cancelled plans and unworn outfits have left us feeling a little out of touch with our wardrobes this year. With no dress code and the safety of elasticated waistbands for three months, it’s no wonder we’re reluctant to return to our pre-lockdown selves.

But as time draws on and the lipstick we once overused for our Zoom calls starts to fade, it’s time to re-establish the new normal – for our wardrobes at least. It may be a while ‘til we’re dancing at weddings and sipping sickly cocktails at birthday parties, but while the world wakes up from its slumber, it’s time to get your outfits back on track.

And since we’re facing a new benchmark when it comes to what to wear, we’ve chosen a few pieces that’ll cover all grounds. So, whether you’re planning ahead or need an instant refresh, our hand-picked pieces will be sure to fit your need.


summer dress

The shift to summer has thrown another spanner in the works. Not only are you shopping for a fresh look but also adapting to a new season. And since you’ll want to make good use of your purchase, we’ve chosen this day dress that’s easily worn all year round as well as day-to-night. Detailed with florals and a tapered waistline, dress it up with wedges and down with a pair of trainers. We’ve styled it with a cardigan to reveal its potential wardrobe staple status.

Bold prints are a clever place to start if you’re stuck in a fashion rut as they’re unlikely to disappear soon. So, choosing a print over style could be the key to an easy transition. But fortunately for you, this cowl neck dress masters both, and gives you the best of both worlds with a slick cowl neckline and a romantic garden print. Kudos to the fabric, too.


floral pretty dress

Part of our Yumi Luxe collection, this party dress was designed for those all-important moments. But since our year is looking more FML than RSVP, it’s time to dust down your formalwear and whip out your casual shoes to fit the dressed down summer ahead. Plus, with the added fun of the clashing colours, there’s plenty of fun to be had with this outfit.


navy summer dress

Save this maxi dress in your memory under ‘future holiday uniform’. Whilst we know it’s heart-breaking to utter the ‘h’ word, this slinky dress isn’t just apt for hol…vacations. It’s lightweight, flippy and breathable, which is suitable for tropical breezes as well as the gusty British climate. Call it an investment for your suitcase.


floral asymmetric dress

Sensible on the top and party on the bottom, this asymmetric dress would’ve been the perfect introduction to summer. Luckily, with a few amendments – a straw bag and a denim jacket – you can still achieve summer style when you head to a picnic or socially distanced soirée.
