The air’s been thick with a sticky fog this week (oh September, we haven’t missed you and your humidity), but women of Dubai – you’ve been keeping it cool and collected when it comes to your wardrobes.

If you think your outfit demands attention on our web space then simply take a photo, share on Instagram, tag us in (@emirateswoman) and use the hashtag #dubaistreetstyle.

That’s it! It’s that simple. Now, inspire us with your looks….

Here are the best dressed options this week:

The Fifties on fast forward:

We’re going dotty for the striking silhouette of that skirt, especially when paired with a Sandy-from-Grease-style off-shoulder body. (Plus that hands-free bag? Genius).

Laidback in layers:

Image consultant Wafa Toutounji proves that pregnancy dressing in summer can be a breeze when you stick to light, draping chiffons jazzed up with statement accessories.

Printed playsuits:

Our dream brunch outfit… just imagine how those tassels swing as you walk, plus the delicate fabric’s a great tonic to September’s stickiness.

Striped back:

Mirrored sunnies and a gently ruffled shirt dress effortlessly take you from office to out on the town, especially when paired with iconic Aquazzura heels.

Victorious in Victoriana:

We won’t rest until we find out where this vintage-inspired sailor shirt is from (and then add it to our own wardrobes).

The perfect leather:

This local blogger demonstrates that yes, the rock-star favourite can be worn at this time of year. Just mix it up with a kitsch, pastel-based tee, and you’ll look cool in all senses of the word.

Playing with proportions:

Consider this proof that the peplum was not a passing fad – and with very good reason. The tailored-but-still-slouchy pants feel very Victoria Beckham circa 2016, and we mean that as the highest of compliments (VB is killing it at the moment).

All white on the night:

Wearing the head-to-toe hue doesn’t have to look bridal – in fact, all we see here is cool, Scandi-esque minimalism. (Although, how great would this Maje gown be for a desert wedding?).

French Riviera in Festival City:

If you’re planning on a lazy brunch then a lounge by the pool over the long Eid weekend, let this lady be your fashion muse.

Getting shirty:

No piece is as versatile as a crisp white shirt – worn a little oversized with a hip-skimming skirt should be a least one of your five workday outfits on a weekly basis.
