Colette Hourglass Blazer, AED 1,060 | The Frankie Shop

“I love a blazer. My husband is so tired of seeing me in them all the time, but I can’t resist – it’s like it’s my identity. I have this amazing hourglass one from a UK based brand called A Personal Uniform, but The Frankie Shop is a go-to as well.”

New Era Cassandre Cap In Canvas, AED 1,000 | YSL

“Having a bad hair day? No problem – a baseball cap is my go-to on the days I don’t always have time to do my hair. It also gives your look that cool, off-duty vibe and it’s an easy way to make tailoring feel a little less formal. This New Era X YSL cap is high up on my wish list.”

Nina Bag, AED 11,935| Gabriela Hearst

“My favourite evening bag is the Nina from Gabriela Hearst. It has a really unique shape but I can still fit everything I need for an evening out in it.”

Boyfriend Fit Jeans 634, AED 759 | 12 Storeez

“When it comes to buying jeans, I love a vintage or slightly oversized baggy fit. I have a ton of vintage Levi’s that I purchased from a company I stumbled upon in Portugal. I also found a great pair at 12 Storeez.”

Men’s Woven Tshirt, AED 150 (was AED 250) | Muji

“My daily uniform often involves a t-shirt, and when you find a good one, you should buy it in every colour. A white one goes a long way and this menswear one from Muji is comfortable and looks great with anything.”

 Hardwear Large Link Earrings, AED 16,900 | Tiffany & Co.

“Tiffany & Co.’s Hardwear collection is chic, cool and versatile. I love these gold earrings – perfect for a casual coffee date or even a special dinner. If I was feeling extra, I’d team them with the matching necklace.”

Cateye Sunglasses, AED 1,505 (were AED 1,880) | YSL

“You can never have too many sunglasses and one shape that’ll transcend the seasons is a cat eye. I love this style from YSL – they make any outfit look chic.”

990v4 Core Trainers, AED 1,099 | New Balance

“Sneakers are a must in my wardrobe – especially a dad sneaker, and New Balance 990s. My personal favourite are the V4s/V5s. I like to throw them on for the gym or to do a grocery shop.”

EW Margaux Bag, AED 22,645 | The Row

“A daytime bag big enough to carry your essentials is essential. The Row’s Margaux bag has been my go-to since 2021. Seeing as the 15, and 17 iterations are constantly sold out, I’m loving the elongated shape on the EW version.”

Stefos Silk Gown, AED 14,490 | The Row

“My capsule wardrobe isn’t complete without a classic black kaftan or dress – and because my style is minimalist and modest, this one from The Row ticks all my boxes. It’s sleek, classic and effortless.”

Phoebe Nappa Black Heels, AED 2,000 | Gia Borghini

“Of course, black heels are a staple. When I need to finish off my look, these ones from Gia Borghini do the trick. The brand makes exceptionally comfortable shoes and I love the buckle details.”

Tank Louis Cartier Watch, AED 39,200 | Cartier

“There is nothing more elegant than a classic watch and this timepiece is one to have in your collection. The leather strap will age beautifully, making it a lovely heirloom to pass down.”

Super Opaque Microfibre Leggings, AED 99 | Calzedonia

“Leggings are the cornerstone of my wardrobe. I’m often rushing from meetings to school pick-ups, so they’re perfect for throwing on with an oversized shirt. Dress them up with a statement blazer and you’ve got YSL vibes.”

Available at Azadea.com

Pleat Detailing Wide Leg Trousers, AED 2,725 | LEMAIRE

“A good pair of trousers is so useful – be it straight, wide leg or something else. I really like these cargo trousers from LEMAIRE as they can be worn casually with a t-shirt and sneakers, or dressed up with a blazer and heels.”

Available at Farfetch.com

Luna Mesh Flats, AED 1,580 | Le Monde Beryl

“The weather is pretty consistent in Dubai, so mesh flats will get a good amount of use. Le Monde Beryl’s Luna flats work for every occasion – the fabric is dressy enough so you don’t have to wear a heel.” 

Available at LevelShoes.com

Linen Short Sleeve Shirt, AED 345 & Linen Wide Leg Tailored Trousers, AED 445 | COS

“As a modest dresser, linen makes up a lot of my wardrobe, especially in the warmer months. Co-ords are comfortable and look good with chunky sandals and classic shades. I love this one from COS.”

Pointy Collar Shirt, AED 1,340 | Teurn Studios

“No beach trip is complete without an oversized shirt. But they’re also good for the school run. Splurging on a good quality one is worth every dirham and this one from Teurn Studios has great details, like the pointy collar and the wide cuffs, that make it feel really luxe.”

Available at SSENSE.com

 Black Pleated Maxi Skirt, AED 2,240 | Aaron Esh

“Skirts have become one of my favourite things to wear lately – either midi or maxi. I especially love this one from Aaron Esh with a crossover blazer, an oversized t-shirt or even a button-down shirt tucked in.”
