The sartorial staples to pick up from the top women’s clothing brands during this year’s DSS
With Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) in full swing, we’ve done the homework for you to find the critical closet finds to snag in the sales at City Centre Deira.
From the ultimate little linen dress to the smart workwear trousers you’ll want to wear all summer long, these new season items will be your fashion fail-safes for many months to come.
Come high summer, and you’ll find us living in breezy linen frocks in the hopes of keeping cool. Featuring a super flattering wrap-style waist and puff sleeves, this tangerine-hued mini is going straight to the front of our wardrobes.
Stylist’s tip: The only drawback to linen is the ironing hassle – we recommend doing so while slightly damp to speed up the process.
Flat raffia mules, AED249, Stradivarius, visit City Centre Deira
We’re always on the lookout for stylish flats to slip on before rushing out the door. These raffia-plaited mules will make any outfit look more polished and will go with most of what you already own.
White culottes trousers, AED179, H&M, visit City Centre Deira
When the weather heats up, we swap out jeans and office trousers for lightweight culottes instead. This wide-leg white pair from H&M is one of the best versions we’ve seen all season.
Stylist’s tip: No style rule that says you can’t team culottes with trainers, but we find the cropped style looks best when worn with heeled sandals or espadrille wedges – the extra height will also give the illusion of longer legs.
Green blazer, AED289, Zara, visit City Centre Deira
This bright green blazer is a bold buy, but one you won’t regret. Style with tailored trousers or a pleated maxi skirt during the working week, or over white summer dresses and cropped denim for your days off.
Seashell hoop earrings, AED49, Bershka, visit City Centre Deira
These seashell hoop earrings are giving us significant island feels. Wear with bare sun-kissed skin and your hair in loose messy waves for surfer-girl chic.
