How to wear and style the ultimate love-forever pieces
Fashion can be a confusing world – even for those who work in the industry! Each year there are several seasons, capsule collections and a continuous roster of trends – many of which you may have seen come round before.
Case in point: last seasons’ mega choker necklace trend, or Autumn/Winter 2016-17’s huge seventies revival. And while we’re all for dabbling in the latest trends and splashing out on IT pieces, here we’re looking to the failsafe fashion items that will never go out of style.
Scroll down below to discover our essential buys from the shops at Mall of the Emirates.
The pick: Leather trousers
Smarter than denim and edgier than tailored trousers, leather pants are a go-to for a multitude of occasions. New season updates include leather culottes and cropped styles, but we say look for a flattering drainpipe style. Wear this wardrobe staple with polished pieces such as fine-knit sweaters, slim-fit blazers and spindly heels.
Green leather trousers, Dhs5,610, Frame Denim at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates
If you prefer your look with a little colour, go for an ink blue or forest green leather. We’re currently lusting after this pair of skinny leather trousers by Los Angeles-based brand Frame Denim.
The pick: White shirt
There is no fashion item with more clout than a crisp white shirt. This unisex piece can be updated with a few simple style tricks. Steer towards an oversized fit, accessorized with a nipped-in waist belt, statement brooches and jewels.
White shirt, Dhs119, Mango Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates
Tuck it in, roll up the sleeves or pop the collar; whichever way it’s worn, a white shirt will forever have a place in our closets.
The pick: Court heels
Pointy high heels win major points in the style department. Modest for the office and incredible flattering to the pins, these glamorous soles will instantly amp up an outfit. Pick a pair in either black, nude or metallic.
