You know the drill, the usual old-fashioned, overplayed fashion advice we always hear: don’t mix dark with dark, don’t overdo it on the print, wear stilettos with dresses to elongate your legs, etc.
Inspired by these worldwide fashionistas rocking these mischievous looks lately, we have done some of our own experiments and have ‘broken’ a lot of fashion trends ourselves!
Take a look at the list of some cool rule breakers we’ve compiled to help inspire your summer wardrobe. Don’t forget to browse our selection to help you create your own unique style from our very own Luxury Closet.
1. Dress Pants? Dresses & Pants?
Rocking pants with dresses is the hot new combination seen on many fashion breakers recently. Wrapped and flowy frocks actually look quite gorgeous combined with skinny jeans or jeggings. Conversely, flared jeans with a fitted dress don’t look too shabby either!
2. Reinventing the color palette:
Mixing navy with brown or wearing pinks and red together? Go for it! This season is all about mixing and creating new color palettes for your outfits. Gone are the old days for matching every tiny detail. This gives us much more leverage to get creative and wear our yellows as bright as the sunshine.
3. Normcore. Boring is the new rage.
If you aren’t familiar with the term, Normcore is the new trend to dress just like a typical average Joe. You are a successful normcore follower if you look like you just stepped out of bed and heading to Spinneys in your pyjama shorts and cardigan. Graphic tees, overall and sneakers? Yes, all about looking effortlessly stylish.
4. Being overdressed is better than being underdressed:
If it’s not one extreme, it’s the other! So when we are tired of not making an effort at all, we like going overboard. Wear all your bling and the brightest dress you have, even during daylight hours! After all, you only live once! If you need further motivation, remember, this is Dubai; it just works every time.
5. Jackets aren’t to be worn, they are to be draped.
Bought a jacket that’s a tad size too big? Fret not about those bulky sleeves, simply drape it over your shoulders and look like you mean business. This is one fad we want to religiously follow, it speaks sexy and serious at one glance.
6. Summer Leather:
There is always a right time for leather, and that’s every time. Let not the old wives’ tale about leather being only for winter affect you. Pull those sleek leather skirts out of your winter wardrobe and pair it with a crop top. Nothing says flirty and fun like this sweet combo!
7. Loose with Loose?
With the heat of Dubai, we know the feeling of trying to let in as much breeze as possible. Wear your loose tops paired with wide palazzo pants or trapeze shaped dresses that make you feel light and comfortable in your own skin. This summer is all about feeling floaty and free!
8. Skirts & Sneakers, that means Track Pants and Heels?
After being inspired by Raf Simon’s S/S 2014 show, we were totally in love with skirts and sneakers. Further, we’ve turned it around and decided to pull off the feminine yet sporty vibe with track pants and heels. All you need is a bit of confidence and scarlet lipstick to complete your look.
