Forget you are shopping in Dubai and break the rules with winter warmers this season.
Clashing checks, woollen jumpers and many deep, dark berry shades stormed across the catwalks in a seasonal collection more suited for those expecting snow instead of the sun. But savvy Dubai style setters won’t break a sweat about wearing these hot new looks around town. Because that’s the best part about fashion – the rules are made to be broken. Besides, there is always the air conditioning…
Is it a coat or a rug? When it comes to checks, it does not matter – since they strutted down the catwalk, thick plaid coats have been seen all over every fashion influencer’s Instagram. Featuring 1950s style oversized cuffs, a loose fit and a stand-up collar, Massimo Dutti’s interpretation of the catwalk style has timeless style. Moreover, at 999 AED, it’s on every Audrey Hepburn fan’s winter wish list - so get it before it goes.

Thigh’s the limit
Gloriously impractical, thigh high stiletto boots are not for the faint-hearted. But that has not stopped them dominating the catwalk this season and, in a city where calling a cab is second nature, they are a great fit for Dubai. Combining this season’s obsession with velvet and the onward march of thigh high boots, Christian Louboutin is the place to go. His Classe boots start at 5,590 AED.
Black thigh high boots are the shoe of this season.
Romance is alive and well this season, with sheers, chiffons, floral and lace threaded throughout almost every designer’s collection. We love Zimmermann’s darker twist on the romantic theme with black lace ruffles and its drawstring neckline’s nod to folk chic.
That’s it, folks
After a lengthy flirtation with lace, Self Portrait’s turned to feminine prints and simpler silhouettes for A/W 2017 and made itself the go-to brand this season. From florals to folk chic - and all in red, the stand out colour of the season, this dress ticks off so many trends it’s practically a collection on its own.
