It’s jacket weather in Dubai…
Something I’ve noticed over last few days of following NYFW coverage, is that street style stars are loving stripes! From pinstripe to nautical as well as patches of striped detail, this print is firm fashion favourite and has featured on my blog several times. Basically, whoever came up with this design hit the jackpot!
The weather in Dubai has been unusually gloomy and, believe it or not, rainy! This calls for a great statement jacket that works from day to night and is not too heavy. Rochas is one of those brands that does elevated casual pieces really well and that shows here in the form of oversized sleeves and jewelled brooch on the left side of the collar. What also drew me to this jacket is the dominating bold stripe that really gives this jacket a wow factor. A piece like this doesn’t require a lot of styling so I opted for distressed Levi’s and these Acne boots that I snapped up on matchesfashion.com sale. They are beyond comfortable and the newest style comes in white with a pink heel – check them out here!
I wanted to take a moment to mention this bag from Demanumea as I really do appreciate unique craftsmanship. This is an Italian brand that I was introduced to at Etoile Boutique and each bag is individually hand painted or designed by artist making each one truly unique. Even Kip was loving them, which trust me is saying a lot! You have to check out their Instagram.
