Office attire doesn’t have to consist of bland navy suits and shapeless shirts – think outside the box and be inspired with our definitive guide to professional dressing.
During the week, speed up your morning routine by deciding on a fashion formula. Select the correct shape and silhouette to suit your figure and stick to it. This could be a wide-leg tailored trouser paired with crisp shirts or perhaps a pencil skirt teamed with peplum tops. Once you have your tried-and-true capsule wardrobe, getting dressed will be quick and stress-free.
Invest in the style staples that will get maximum wear; think modest LBD frocks, smart trousers, leather bags and classic blazers. Save on trend-driven pieces - these can be sourced from highstreet favourites such as Zara Dubai, Mango Dubai and H&M.
When it comes to shopping in Dubai, Mall of the Emirates is the ultimate destination for fashion. Here you’ll find hundreds of stores filled to the brim with the latest threads and trends.
