Tunic – Yuki Tokyo
Jewellery – Accessorize
Belt – River Island
Nails – Bourjois Jaune Trendy
I recently received this tunic from Yuki Tokyo – an online clothing store which also has a concession section in Topshop and many boutique stores worldwide. Yuki takes inspiration from the Shibuya street in Tokyo, a lively and colourful area which spawns many up and coming fashion trends, and incorporates these key styles within their range, making each piece a little bit unique and individual. Their range is quite varied, stocking what I would describe as ‘chic work wear’, simple, sophisticatedly cut dresses and shirts, as well as the floral and the frilly for casual daytime wear.
This tunic is probably not a style I would normally pick out; I do seem drawn towards the aforementioned floral dresses and anything remotely colourful, but I was really pleased with how it fitted and worked once I had added my own accessories. Their sizing is one size (8-12) in everything which I was a bit nervous about, and without the belt this would have been a bit sack-like, but the fit on top and the length was perfect on me. The material is beautiful too, even if it does demand some laborious hand washing, and hung really nicely. I think their pieces are quite pricey in all honesty, but I think you are paying for the material and cut, which you really do notice. I particularly love the low looping armholes on this shift dress, creating the illusion of a double sleeve. I braved some bare legs with this dress but I think it would also look really pretty with some tights and chunky knitwear for the impending Autumn season, which seems chillily close!
