How to Rock Smart-Casual in Winter with Yuki Tokyo’s A/W 2016 Collection
Posted on December 01 2016
Mastering the ‘smart-casual’ look is hard, whatever the season. You have to look smart enough for any events whilst also remaining relatively informal; whether out for dinner, drinks or simply at work. Indeed, with the arrival of Winter many of us crumble under the pressures of smart-casual as plummeting temperatures require more and more layers and we prioritise staying warm. This is less than ideal when invitations to festive events with smart-casual dress-codes are coming in thick and fast.
Here at Yuki we’ve launched our A/W 2016 Collection with you in mind. Our new collection includes a number of easy, chic looks that will mean you don’t have to be freezing to rock smart-casual this year. Our ‘How To’ Style Guide introduces you to our beautiful A/W 2016 Collection full of elegant textures, neutral colours and earth tones whilst showing you how to dress smart-casual during the Winter months…
Our gorgeous Winter Waistcoats, available in both grey and black, can finish off the perfect smart casual look. The short cotton sleeves ensure that you can layer up till your heart’s content underneath the waistcoat, you are not restricted or limited in your outfit choice by the usual long and tight sleeves of a coat. Team our Winter Waistcoats with our thick knitwear to stay warm whilst creating a unique and savvy smart-casual look.
Wide Legged Pleated Pants
In Winter time we often feel ourselves missing the feminine frills of the Summer as we live in tailored pants. However, at Yuki we’ve solved this predicament with our A/W 16 Collection. Yuki’s Wide Legged Pleated Pants are the answer for those who are seeking a more feminine touch to their smart-casual look. These best-sellers are available in earthy colours including mocha pink, burgundy and teal. The pants allow for easy movement whilst you make a sophisticated statement at upcoming gatherings with friends. You can also hide a thick pair of tights underneath to keep you toasty warm. Genius!
Comfy Velvet Culottes
These velvet culottes are one of our personal favourites in the A/W 16 Collection and are proof that smart-casual in Winter does not always have to consist of a pair of jeans and heeled boots. At Yuki we believe culottes are an ideal (and more comfortable!) alternative to the classic smart-casual style. They can transform an otherwise casual outfit however, if you want to dress your look down you can rock them with a pair of trainers and our ruffled jumper, like below. So instead of wearing jeans to your upcoming smart-casual events why not invest in Yuki’s pair of stylish velvet culottes to show yourself off?
It’s a fact: shirts are an essential in every woman’s smart-casual wardrobe. In our A/W 16 Collection we have a number of smart shirts designed to keep you stylish whilst looking professional in the office. Our pin-striped navy and white shirt looks best when worn with a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of heeled ankle boots. This look that will never die, it is both classic and timeless. You’ll be able to stand out at numerous smart-casual events all year round. Our shirt is good quality and the perfect investment for everyday life.
