3 brunch-worthy outfits for now

13th October / Abbie Tanner 

Here at YSV, we’re certainly ones to over indulge in a boozy brunch, and luckily for us, most of our friends will say the same thing too. Hey, who doesn’t love a bloody mary just gone 11am! Glam Friday and Saturday nights have been replaced (only just) by fizz-fuelled mornings spent Instagramming our avo on toast – it’s official, weekends are for brunching.

Let’s be honest, prosecco and bacon is a great kickstart to your day – especially as it’s about to get too cold to go out past 8pm. Our advice? Start early, finish early! Sounds fun, right? But, what do you wear? It’s got to be a perfect hybrid of an outfit that’s not too dressy, yet not too casj… what does that even mean? Don’t panic, all you need to think about is what’s on the menu, we’ve got the brunch-ready looks, covered…

Clash your prints on top and keep the bottom classic

Who knew polka dots and leopard print look so good together. Style the loud pairing with classic mom jeans and loafers for casj style with an edge.

Just rolled out of bed but with a polished finish

Hoodies and biker jackets are one of our favourite combos. Keep your trainers fresh white and add a statement earring for an outfit that’s got this season written all over it.

Skirts that work from AM to PM

A corduroy skirt is one of this season’s biggest buys. Layer with a gorgeous chunky knit and finish with classic knee-high boots so if brunch plans turn into pub plans you’ll fit right in.

What to wear if you work from home

9th October 2017 / Abbie Tanner

Working for yourself has never been more prevalent than now; our obsession with online has created a boom in freelancers which means most people’s offices are their bed, kitchen table or local coffee shop.

Working in your pj’s does sound like the dream; no reason to slap on foundation, brush your hair (or is that just us?) or worry about being stuck under someone’s armpit for the daily commute. However, if you’re as fashion-obsessed as we are then working from home leaves little to the imagination on the outfit front. Trying not to fall into that sweatpants rut is tough – it’s the first thing we do when we get home, so a whole day spent in them does sound divine. But isn’t that what Sunday’s are for?

So, if you want to get those creative juices flowing, what should you wear for that bedroom-come-office situation? We’ve picked the perfect work-from-home outfit choices: cosy jumpers, cashmere joggers that would be totally suitable to answer the door in (another WFH perk, you’re always in to sign for your online shopping!) and relaxed boyfriend shirts for that smart but casual vibe should a skype call be in the diary.

Don’t worry we don’t want to totally swipe away those comfy leggings but just show you that creating a working from home uniform will definitely be better for business.

This is forever fashion’s favourite print

5th October 2017 / Abbie Tanner

Whether it’s a statement coat, a sassy pair of ankle boots or a 70s-inspired neck-tie, if it’s in leopard print, you’re pretty much sorted for many seasons to come – especially, now it’s autumn. There is a line with leopard print – think luxe not trashy – and to get it right, it’s all down to how you wear it. So, shove your gingham aside ladies, it’s time for this fashion classic to roar (sorry, we couldn’t resist).

Clash it

You CAN clash it with other prints, just keep it neutral – we love a leopard print skirt with a Breton stripe or a slogan tee.


Maje Skirt, £155, available here

The statement

Make a statement with it! In this case, it’s all about a coat. Owning a leopard print coat will see you through many autumn/winters. Trust us.


Monki Jacket, £65, available here

Best foot first

Wear all black and top it off with a leopard print boot. They have a rock star edge and will become a no-think outfit for A/W.


Office Boots, £89, available here

Just a touch

If leopard print is just not you (yet), why not ease yourself in with a bag? Be it a slouchy everyday number or a small cross-body, it’s a cool way to complete most outfits.


Skinnydip Bag at Topshop, Was £28, now £22, available here


Have you tried the colour of the season yet?

28th September 2017 / Abbie Tanner

With it reigning supreme at Alexander McQueen, Prada and Max Mara, red made its stand as THE colour of the season. Whether you indulge in a statement red coat, go bold in head to toe, or experiment by clashing it with pops of purple and pink, it’s the shade to be seen in.

The fiery hue had a grown-up edge for AW17; it felt refined and polished, making it a great choice for both workwear and off-duty looks. Not just reserved for those sparkly Christmas party dresses!

So, with autumn in full swing and the colder temps of winter just around the corner, we’ve picked our favourite high-street buys to bring your wardrobe bang up to date – and there’s nothing more uplifting than a rich injection of red…

Hats off

Making your accessories red is an easy way to tap into the trend. Choose a beret and nail Parisian chic whilst you’re at it too.


Zara Beret, £12.99, available here

Keep it classic

A red coat is an ultimate statement piece and the easiest way to jazz up the simplest of outfits.


New Look Coat, £34.99, available here


A little red dress is almost as necessary as a little black dress. This strappy UO number has been all over Insta and we can see why (heart eye emoji!). The beauty of this one is that you can layer it over a roll-neck and tights when winter really hits.


Urban Outfitters Dress, £42, available here

All knitted out

There’s something so satisfying about buying a new-season knit and this Mango beauty is one of our faves.


Mango Sweater, £35.99, available here

Fanciful frills

Frills are a lovely detail to make a top feel more dressy, if it’s got a fluted sleeve then that’s even better! To complete the look add a cold glass of prosecco.


& Other Stories Blouse, £59, available here

Wear the trousers (and make ’em red)

Wide-legged and red! What more do you want for lovely late autumn style? We’d pair these with Stan Smiths, clash the red with a teal sweater and finish with a cool biker.


River Island Trousers, £42, available here
