From patterns to colors to textures, this week in GRAZIA’s best dressed, the GCC influencers bring us some maximalist vibes.
The fashion trends of the season clearly lean to ward loud luxury as the style-centre influencers prove through their weeks’ outfit pictures.
Featuring multicolour dresses, statement purses and textured abayas, we bring you the style secrets from the region’s fashion gurus.
Aya Nasser Derar
Leaning into colour, Aya wears a vibrant multicoloured slip dress that’s both elegant and lively. It mirrors the golden-pink sunset behind her as she adds dainty gold jewellery to the sensual yet playful summer dress.
Wavy multicoloured pieces seem to be in line with the fashion trends of the season, as Jawaher wears a marbled murky green and blue abaya. She grounds the loud piece with a brown sheer hijab and a medium Chanel Flap Bag in the classic black with golf hardware colourway.
A two piece wrap-around set that exudes a class with a touch of intrigue. In a slick-back low bun and gold hoops, Canel poses in a loose fit high neck blue top and matching linen ankle length skirt. From the high slit to the cropped top, she balances elements of fun flirty touches while radiating grace. She completes the outfit with a white Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie and wrap-around squared heels.
If you want to keep up with street-style fashion trends, Summer always supplies with unapologetic fun Gen-Z fits. In a sheer baby tee, she embraces patterns and colours, with its floral and yellow patches. While on the bottom she wears a black mini skirt and some pointed toe knee-length boots. Mixing a high energy piece with some statement black ones, she styles out outfit with a feminine edge.
While it may look like Hind is wearing a simple brown abaya, on closer inspection you can see the ripped thick velour material that elevated the piece to a new vibe. With a simple cream denim and a white top, the Emirati fashion influencer shows us yet another way abaya brands are designing pieces in creative ways.
Muted yet ever-present, Ola wears a forest green bubble dress with a stunning green pendant gold necklace. Complete with thick strap and ruffled trip, the deep green cocktail dress has a layer of sparkly intricately patterned across the entire body.
With asymmetric zips and a distorted take on their iconic plaid pattern, Ola poses in an all-Burberry ensemble. This weekly best dressed doesn’t only boast colours, it also points to a range of patterns as upcoming fashion trends. Accessorised with the Warped Hounstooth Midi dress are some heeled leather rider boots, adding a masculine touch to the thick dress. The eye-catching patent leather rose clutch mystifies the otherwise black and white outfit.
We can’t gloss over the hold of the mob wife aesthetics on fashion trends, as Zeina Albker flaunts her long fur trench in this week’s best dressed edit. With a straightforward black and white outfit underneath, the fur coat adds dimensions and texture to the cosy outfit.
Lastly, Dalal leans towards subdued crystal in this mint green textured set. With a slit on the sides, the top has a comfortable fit, while the maxi skirt hugs her hips before falling into a flowing fit. Complete with the Jimmy Choo Avenue Pouch, this summer outfit balances simple silhouettes with eccentric materials.
