SHOP: My Summer fashion staples
The Rolling Stones may have famously sung that you can’t always get what you want, but Dubai begs to differ. The gargantuan malls are brimming with the most desirable pieces from S/S15.
The modus operandi this new season? Pairing easy pieces, like white trousers with a matching top. Just make sure to sprinkle some pizzaz on your look by adding a statement accessory.
The White Shirt
There’s more than one way to wear a white, collared shirt. Try this oversized shirt from Zara buttoned up for a prim and proper effect, or layered on top of a cropped tank top to release the rebel within.
Price: AED195 from Zara
Fringes and perfectly round sunglasses are all part of the 70’s inspired movement which is oh-so-hot right now. One highly demanded pair of retro shades here in the UAE are Chloe’s round boho metal frames, a.k.a the “Carlina” sunglasses.
Price: AED850 from Chloe
Denim in any form is in this season. A pair of dark-wash denim flairs nail two trends in one, with the retro vibe everyone loves. Match with Celine’s oval shaped handbag, et voila! You’re the chicest chick on the block.
Price: AED1,280 J Brand, Boutique One (Mall of the Emirates)
