Go wide

Perfectly tailored wide-leg trousers aren’t just for the office – as this gal proves, they’re weekend-ready when pared back with a logo tee and dainty cross-body bag.

In fact, this fashionista is our new trouser muse, pictured here rocking the sometimes-hard-to-pull-off culottes. We’ve always feared they were a high-heels-only affair, but here they look cool, calm and not leg-shorteningly slouchy paired with metallic mules.

Into the blue

Mannequin challenge in the middle of elegant and spaciousness @etihadmuseum Dubai is well-known for always looking towards of future, but a new museum gives us a deeper look into the UAE’s past. Definitely worth to visit! And the silk-denim dress @lillijahilo and hand embroidered accessories by @elensaint are the best company for #mannequin 💙❤😂 #etihadmuseum #history #learnfromthepast #uae #dubailife #expat #empowerment #mannequinchallenge . . . #dubaifashion #saudifashion #dohafashion #fashion #instafashion #dubai #dubaistreetstyle #styleindubai #mydubai #myuae #instadubai #dubaidesign #dubaidesigner #dubaifashiondesigner #fashionindubai #emiratesfashion #modernluxury #instadaily #picoftheday #photooftheday #beautiful

Here is fine proof that denim can be office-friendly (especially when a snazzy silver brogue is involved). We’re already picturing throwing a marl jumper over the top in winter, adding a little collar underneath for big meetings, chucking on a strappy stiletto for drinks…

Check mate

This plaid pencil skirt feels very Mad Men meets modern day – mostly thanks to the embellished mules and boyfriend-fit knit.

The clash

On paper you might think these elements wouldn’t marry, but in reality they all come together beautifully thanks to the complementary colour palette. We’re adding that skirt to our virtual shopping basket…

Going hell for leather

Well, we just discovered a whole new use for our leather minis…

That’s a wrap

This rosy little number has us dreaming of the first signs of spring (but we’re pretending summer in the UAE doesn’t exist).
