A modest summer.

SPONSORED: Now that summer is here, we can expect temperatures to rise through the roof and the humidity to become unbearable. And one of the biggest challenge in this weather is managing to dress modestly.

The key to keeping things stylish and modest in the summer is breathable outfits. Light materials and loose pieces are your best-friends in this weather. To make shopping for this easier, online re-tailer Ounass curated a modest summer edit, compromising of luxury regional and international designers. Here are five must-have pieces from their edit.

Bouguessa – AED 825

This White Belted Long-Sleeve Shirt from Bouguessa is the ultimate modest-piece for summer. When dressing for this weather, you should try to keep layering to a minimum. You can pair this collarless shirt with a pair of wide pants or an A-line skirt, for a loose, breezy and feminine look.

Zayan The Label – AED 1,260


The best piece of clothing for the summer will always be a loose dress, that will allow the breeze in. This Yellow Embellished Lenny Kaftan Dress from Zayan the Label is on trend and will be the perfect addition to your summer closet. You can style up this dress up by pairing it with heels or dress it down with sneakers or slippers for a more casual vibe.

Club Monaco – AED 699

It is a well known fact that one of the best fabrics for summer is linen. So trade in these Anreannah Striped Cropped Pants for your jeans, to keep out the heat. The paperbag waist silhouette is making a comeback, and you will need them in your closet. You can style these pants in so many ways, either with a white shirt or a denim button shirt for a hip modern look.

Elna Line – AED 1,650

Abaya is a staple of modest fashion, but this summer steer clear of your black abaya’s and trade them in for lighter ones instead. This beige Sequin & Bead-Embellished Abaya will help take your outfit to another level. Take a risk, step out of your comfort zone and step up your abaya game.

Valentino – AED 2,000

Mules have arrived and they are here to stay. Probably the biggest shoe trend of this season, you can’t not rock mules this summer. The Rockstud Spike Cross-Strap Denim Mules from the Italian brand will be a statement-making in your closet, and certain must-haves from the Ounass summer-edit. Pair them with your printed summer dresses or ankle pants for a stylish look.
