A Fashion Blogger's Guide to the New Season

Born and raised in Dubai, Zahra Lyla is one of the region’s most loved fashion bloggers.

The graphic designer turned fashion content creator behind website justlyla.com has garnered a loyal following on social media platforms since launching her blog seven years ago.

The IT girl can often be found combing the shops at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. “It’s my one-stop destination for everything I might need (or want!), from high-street fashion at Zara, to high-end labels such as Gucci and Burberry,” Zara told us. “I love the location as it has everything under one roof and isn't too big a mall that you can't navigate and walk around it easily.”

Zahra also visits Mall of the Emirates for a spot of pampering. “As well as fabulous fashion stores, MoE also has my favourite beauty brands – I shop at Sephora Dubai and go to get pampered at the new TNS location,” she revealed.

Here, Zahra shares her top new season picks from the Middle East’s leading shopping malls.

Jumper, H&M, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Sharjah, City Centre Ajman, City Centre Fujairah, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Me'aisem, City Centre Bahrain, City Centre Muscat, City Centre Qurum, City Centre Alexandria, City Centre Maadi and City Centre Beirut

“What is better than a cosy grey knitted sweater? One with ruffles of course. Two of my favorite things in one piece! I would pair this H&M sweater with my trusty boyfriend jeans for a casual day look.”

Dress, Zara, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Bahrain, City Centre Muscat, Centre Alexandria and City Centre Maadi

“Floral prints are all the rage this season so I just have to have this Zara dress in my wardrobe. I will keep it casual with a pair of sneakers during the day or dress it up with my highest pair of heels.”

Shoes, Alameda Turquesa at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

“How can a girl say no to pompoms on her feet? These Alameda Turquesa flats are going to be my wardrobe staple this season.”

Sequin top, KOCHÉ at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates

“I am a total magpie, so this sequin top by Koché is calling out my name. Paired with some skinny jeans and strappy heels and I am ready for a night out with my girls.”

The Great Outdoors - Décor Buys In Dubai

  • Great Outdoors  00

    With the cooler months on the horizon, it’s high time to overhaul your backyard. After many months of retreating to the air conditioning and neglecting our gardens, we’re looking to spruce up our outdoor space with a few new décor purchases.

    The shopping malls in the Middle East are filled places to pick up homewares, from high-end interior stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more affordable spots including Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre.

    We’ve scoured all of shops to source the most stylish pieces to buy now.

  • Great Outdoors 01

    Artificial tree, Marina Home Interiors, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif
    Even the most eager green-thumbed friends wouldn’t know this orange tree was a faux.

    Décor tip: If you’re not one for gardening look out for fake plants and trees instead – Artificial greenery is a lot less upkeep than the real thing and won’t malt leaves all over your patio. You can always add small succulents and cactuses into the mix, both of which require little care or watering.

  • Great Outdoors 023

    Outdoor pillows, Crate & Barrel, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif
    Pair bright bohemian prints with block colour cushions on outdoor chairs and sofas.

    Décor tip: Colourful cushions and printed rugs are an easy way to add instant life to a compact balcony or terrace. To keep the look cohesive, stick to a colour scheme but mix it up with a selection of different textures and patterns.

  • Great Outdoors 03

    Metal lanterns, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

    Décor tip: Load up on Arabesque lanterns in a mishmash of metals such as bronze and burnished silver. We advise buying battery candles as opposed to the real thing - they last longer, don’t make a waxy mess and won’t blow out in the breeze.

The Art of Entertaining

The key elements to a successful dinner party can be broken down into four essential categories; food, lighting, music and the all-important seating plan.

Once you have the menu mastered, candles lit, playlist spinning and place cards arranged, it’s on to the table setting.

The most beautiful tablescapes are often the simplest. So ditch the over-the-top candelabras, mish-mash of ornaments and towering flowers (which can distract and obstruct guests’ view during conversation) and follow our insider guide to creating a memorable bash below. 

The shopping malls in the Middle East are filled with décor havens, from luxurious interior stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more affordable buys found in Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre. 

When browsing the shops be sure to keep a colour-theme or style in mind to avoid your space looking cluttered. For example, do you want a blue and white nautical look, a dramatic monochrome palette or perhaps a relaxed bohemian theme running throughout? Make up your mind and stick to your vision.

 

Scroll down to discover a few of our favourite finds in store now…

 

Marble bread plate, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Navy and white printed dinnerware, Crate & Barrel, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif

Décor tip: Serving dishes and plates are an easy area to inject a little colour and personality into your table. Invest in good quality china that will stand the test of time, and look for porcelain collections with classic prints such as Chinoiserie or Ikat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glass pitcher, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

Décor tip: Pretty pitchers and sleek carafes make for a much more elegant table. Decant water, grape and juices into glass dispenses for guests to help themselves.
