Get the look


Dress, Dh750, Topshop; Clutch, Dh250, Accessorize. 

Actress Olivia Wilde makes a sweeping statement in a vintage Mollie Parnis black one-shoulder fringe dress at the CFDA fashion awards in New York. Our high-street version will have you looking just as flapper fabulous for a fraction of the cost. 

What I’m buying this month


My 2015 back-to-work wardrobe is going to include boardroom-best accessories from Vince Camuto. I love the roomy on-duty bags and punchy but simple jewellery that adds a nifty 9-to-5 twist. Pair with tailored separates for a look that says you’re ready for business. From Dh200. 

Where I’m browsing this month


If you’re having a closet clear-out this January, has everything you need for a fresh new wardrobe – and it will be delivered straight to your door so you won’t have the stress of trawling a mall. From budget-priced accessories, to sportswear, to the perfect party dress, Namshi stocks hundreds of fashion-forward brands to choose from. We’re hooked already!

Designer collaboration to watch out for


Our fave print queen, Mary Katrantzou, has teamed up with Adidas to kit us out in the most fashionable sportswear in the shops right now. The pieces are far too cool to save for the gym, so plough your way through the DSF crowds to grab a fab frock for a fashionable night out or a pair of trainers for the weekend coffee run. In Adidas stores now from Dh395.

Psst... news alert


I’ve been a fan of Dubai-based designer Judith Hobby for a while now – throw on one of her simple jersey dresses and you’re sure to look effortlessly elegant – and she’s just launched an equally covetable jewellery collection. See I feel a shopping spree coming on!
