Winter 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear On a Trip to Abu Dhabi

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I am so looking forward to the weekend as I’ll be spending some much needed one-on-one time with my baby sis, celebrating her birthday with a night out on the town. But before I do, let’s get into today’s style inspiration.

Ayanna writes, “Hello, I am going to Abu Dhabi on a girl’s trip in February and I have been researching what to wear to stay within the cultural rules yet still remain fashionable and chic in the Abu Dhabi weather. I am really interested in any suggestions you could give for looking my best.”

While making sure to keep the hemlines, necklines, and silhouettes on the conservative and modest side, mix prints and work in bold colors to achieve a rich and lavish wardrobe palette. As you’ll want to travel light, statement jewelry and fun accessories will also be key components to mix things up and add a pop to your wardrobe staples.

Travel in style in a Roberto Cavalli butterfly printed kaftan offset by a pair of Missoni wide leg trousers, Giuseppe Zanotti embellished strap flat sandals, and a two-tone shopper tote.

For an extra dose of chic throw on a stylish black turban, a pair of Linda Farrow over-sized shades, and a stunning statement necklace or beaded chandelier earrings.

For look #2, dress up a simple maxi dress with a long sleeve beaded tunic, a Matthew Williamson pink metallic embossed shopper, and a stylish pair of gold and stone encrusted leather sandals.

Give the look a bit more flare with a stunning gold hinge necklace, crystal-embellished disc earrings, and a set of bangles.

For your final wardrobe option, tap into Middle Eastern glam in a Missoni long kaftan accented by a pair of cobalt blue Schutz Erlina gladiator sandals and a printed shopper bag.

Amp up the wow factor with layers of gilded accents, including a jeweled statement necklace, shimmering drop scallop earrings, and a multi-bar cuff bracelet. Miu Miu Noir polygonal shaped turquoise sunglasses and a festive makeup palette complete this look.
