Fresh New Fashion Finds AW 2017

These new season buys mean you can keep up with catwalk fashion while shopping in Dubai.

With temperatures finally going in the right direction (by which we mean you can stand outside without your skin burning off!), now is the perfect time to invest in updating your wardrobe. This year’s autumn/winter collection offers plenty of fresh new looks to choose from. From Mirdif to Deira, we’ve combed the City Centres for this month’s top fashion finds.

Flower power

Florals are no longer synonymous with summer – they can be worn all year round, especially thanks to Dubai’s balmy winter temperatures. From Prada to Preen, flower print was splashed across the catwalks and it is continuing to grow on us. To get the look, try Ted Baker for stunning floral maxi-dresses with slashes of red to tick the lady in red fashion box too.

Top of the blocks

The best way to make your look pop is with a bit of clever colour blocking. Luckily the high street stores offer lots of top choices, so simply pick your favourite colour and off you go. BCBGMAXAZRIA obviously took inspiration from the Milan Fashion Week, making the brand Dubai’s place to go for breezy, asymmetric numbers. Colour blocks look best with a white shirt for the park or the beach, then take them back to black (a la the catwalk) after dark. Bellissimo!

What a furore!

Things are getting hairy this season, with faux fur appearing in every rainbow shade on and off the catwalk. Style steal the look from Milan’s Fashion Week at Bershka. Available at City Centre Mirdif, their faux fur mustard sweater is bound to be a favourite of the style set this winter. Furry nice!

The Best Crimson tide Ladies Apparel for this Season

Celebs are on red alert this season – and here’s our pick of the best fiery fashion in Dubai.

As well as picking up the ‘best actress’ award at the recent Emmy’s, Nicole Kidman definitely should have scooped best dressed in this season’s hottest colour. If top-to-toe red is a little fierce for your fashion tastes, we’ve picked out some safer scarlet fashion choices for you. Because this is one shade that’s going to be smoking all season. Remember you ‘red’ it here first!

Red-hot knit

A slouchy red knit is one way to embrace autumn/winter’s fiery trend. Team it with a denim of midi length skirt (tomato red if you dare) for a nod to the 70s style of the season. If you can’t stretch to Victoria Beckham, Massimo Dutti has a range of red knits to keep you cosy – and on-trend.

Getting Shirty

Sheer shirts are a more weather friendly way to make sure your friends and family are seeing red this season. Spotted outside Christopher Kane, stylist and influencer Natasha Goldenberg rocked the trend, teaming it with the check print to maximize her style credentials. Fashionistas looking to shop the trend should head to Maje, who have a multi-tasking sheer shirt with a yolk of frills across the chest to pay homage to folk chic at the same time while staying red alert.

99 Red Balloons

When it comes to high fashion, sometimes only a dress will do – and this full-skirted cocoon skirt from Cos is a definite showstopper. Nipped in at the waist, before ballooning out into a flattering full skirt that ends just below the knee, this piece is lightweight enough to take you through the season back in the summer again. Now that’s what we call red hot!

HRH Queen Rania is one of the best-dressed royals in the world. Never one to step a well-heeled foot out of fashion, the Jordanian queen is celebrated for her impeccably chic yet modest sense of style.

Despite only recently welcoming twin babies (Ella and Alexander), the wife of George Clooney is not slowing down in the style department and was most recently spotted hitting the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month.

The Beirut-born may be married to Hollywood’s golden boy, but she’s a star in her own right. Her work as a barrister at prestigious London-based firm "Doughty Street Chambers" sees her specialise in international law and human rights, with past clients including the likes of WikiLeaks founder "Julian Assange".

Bella Hadid is no stranger to stealing the scene with her fashion-savvy outfits. Along with sister Gigi, the supermodel has taken the modelling world by storm recent seasons. The half-Palestinian beauty has even set a new record by landing the most Vogue magazine covers in one month - an impressive 5 September issues.

While we were hard-pressed to pick just one look, this street style snap, showing the 20-year-old in a swinging sixties-inspired red jumpsuit shows exactly why she is one of the fashion industry’s most in-demand stars.

In our eyes supermodel Kendall Jenner can’t step a foot out of style. As the face of Estée Lauder, Fendi and La Perla (to name just a few), the trend-making runway queen has certainly picked up a trick or two for her personal wardrobe.

One of the youngest members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, the 21-year-old beauty recently displayed her fashion credentials while aboard a luxury boat in Cannes, France. The epitome of nautical chic, Kendall opted for high-waisted white trousers teamed with a Breton striped top, black sunnies, and cat-eye shades.

BFF to Kendall, fellow supermodel Gigi Hadid showed just why she is one of the fashion’s favourite faces as she stepped out in New York recently. The American beauty rocked double denim paired with a bright red tank, matching boots and an equally vibrant cherry-hued lipstick.

When opting for wide-leg boyfriend-cut jeans follow Gigi’s suit and accentuate your waist by pairing with a crop top.

Most recently, the actress/supermodel can be seen in Sci-Fi blockbuster Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets - now showing at Vox Cinemas.

Known for her edgy tomboy style, the young Brit beauty was spotted out and about donning a plunging navy velvet suit and coordinating colourful shades with her newly shaved ice-blonde buzz-cut.
