With the blink of an eye, it is officially the fashionable autumn-winter season, and we can most certainly feel a crisp chill in the air. As the leaves begin to change and the days become shorter, it’s time to embrace long fresh walks, cosy indoor meals and not to mention copious outfit ideas and layering opportunities.
Whether you’re updating your wardrobe or simply looking for one or two pieces to refresh your look from last year, these are the shopping trends in Dubai everyone needs to carry you through the colder months. What’s more- you can find them all in Nakheel Mall!
While that practical light raincoat or utility jacket might still do the job for dashing around the shops or going to and from work during the day, it just won’t cut it on a night out mid-winter. This season a slew of puffa jackets have been hitting the stores. While they may be reminiscent of mid 90’s the beloved puffa has sparked a new revival, with the likes of Kylie Jenner frequently donning the year’s must-have coat.
The great thing about a puffa jacket is that they look just as fab paired up with a pencil skirt and boots as they do with tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Stand out from the crowd in a bold oversized piece, with so many to make your own. Check out Superdry, Puma, Giulio Twist or Sun & Sand Sports.
Is there anything more uncomfortable than walking around with damp, cold feet? We all know how Dubai weather can suddenly turn. This year avoid that horrible toe numbing experience by investing in the right footwear to see you through until spring.
Avoid that horrible can’t-move-my-toes feeling while you’re taking in the extravaganza by choosing the right footwear before you head out on the town.
All eyes are on chunky soles this season and with valid reason. Not only do they make you look Rita Ora/Dua Lipa cool and provide you with a quick height boost, they’re great for keeping your feet snug. What’s more, they go with everything in men and women’s fashion! Whether you consider yourself jeans and shirt guy or a dress loving lady, you can find solace in these shoes. Be sure to look for a chunky boot made with waterproof textiles to withstand even the harshest of weather. Check Kurt Geiger, Steve Madden or Ecco.
Numb fingers don’t have to be a thing this year. For a long-lasting glove that’ll compliment any outfit, a classic black leather number shouldn’t be overlooked this winter. Whether you have a penchant for the creamy texture of soft leather or you’re looking for something a little more rugged, there’s a leather glove to suit everyone.
From fur trims to fashion leopard prints and intricate patterns, get yourself stocked up with at least one pair of wardrobe staple gloves this winter. Pay close attention to the lining, with cashmere, silk or deerskin for the taking. If you are not a fan of the real thing, there’s plenty of faux fur replicas and even smartphone optimised gloves! Head to Casiani Furs, Lovisa, Sacoor Brothers or Maybach.
And don’t forget those warm beverages!
Should you want to warm up but without adding to the global plastic problem with disposable cups, find yourself an eco-friendly reusable cup. Grabbing a coffee on the go needn’t play on your conscience with a sustainable and stylish cup. These days you can find them made from recyclable materials such as bamboo and in hundreds of patterns and styles. Head to Tchibo, Starbucks or XIMIVOGUE and find your perfect match.
