12 Reasons Why FFWD Might Be Dubai’s Best Event For Street Style
These local fashionistas have us totally rethinking what we can wear to work (seriously, we’re even considering a tiara right now…).
That’s the question on our lips after seeing the street style at Fashion Forward Season 9, where attendees looked front-row ready despite Dubai’s drizzly weekend weather.
From distressed leathers to Fifties-feeling flounces, the region’s style talent pulled out a variety of looks that are going to influence our wardrobes for months to come.
Here are the looks that impressed us the most…
Contrasting plaid and polka dots totally work when handled with restraint. We’re also feeling the asymmetric fishtailed skirt, which would look equally as good with a crisp white shirt and chunky necklace.
A jazzy overcoat will brighten up a wardrobe full of neutrals with ease (especially on a wet weekend).
We won’t rest until we also own these nautical wide-leg lovelies.
Voluminous ruffles and polka dots have a very retro feel, but the high-waisted cigarette pants create a perfect balance of contemporary and classic.
Red, white and black will always be an elegant colour palette, and the black necktie adds an extra dose of chic.
We’re always after new ways to style up silky slips, and adding leather loafers looks like a new office-appropriate must-try…
Our next birthday present for the best pal, sorted.
The hues of this pearl-dotted overcoat has us dreaming of pistachio ice-cream, and that’s never a bad thing.
So regal, so refined, so making us question whether we can legitimately rock a tiara at work.
Those rose-framed sunnies and striped wrap top are a match made in fashion heaven.
The measured use of applique takes this combo from an A to an A+, especially with the graphic tights and demure Mary Janes.
We always rely on heels for the leg-lengthening effect they have on the often-tricky-to-pull-off culottes, but this lady’s got us considering trying our Stan Smiths on for size.
