Our favourite trousers, flowing frocks and covered-up tops from the current collections.
Modest and stylish, the new season’s collections are full of fashion gems
Not so very long ago, dressing modestly and being high fashion at the same time was a tricky proposition – but no longer. Over recent seasons, modest fashion has stepped into the mainstream, with flowing frocks, loose trousers, lustrous silks and luxurious tailoring all taking a turn in the spotlight. So, whether you are a full-time modest dresser or merely a follower of fashion, these picks from the new season collections will keep you looking both cool and covered.
Horse & Carriage print pleated dress, AED4,550, Coach, visit City Centre Mirdif
Evidence, if evidence was needed, of modest fashion’s mainstream appeal, this Coach dress ticks every fashion box going. Made from a lurex-laced pleated silk in a bold signature horse and carriage print, Coach’s new offering features leather panelling for a distinctly high-end finish. Modelled by Kate Moss in the iconic brand’s latest campaign, it’s destined to fly off the shelves, so you’d best be quick!
Denim jumpsuit, AED250, Mango, visit City Centre Mirdif
Long-sleeved and wide-legged, this Mango jumpsuit is modest dressing at its most comfortable, and it’s endlessly cool too. Layer over a thin knit and pair with boots on cooler days, or try it with a white T and trainers when spring arrives.
Wool trousers, AED385, and blazer, AED820, Massimo Dutti, visit City Centre Mirdif
Spring 2020 is the season of the suit and we adore this Massimo Dutti choice. Crafted from 100% wool in the season’s hottest toffee colour, the false double-breasted blazer and loose tailored trouser make for an effortlessly cool, androgynous combo. Pair with a white T and trainers for a truly chic off-duty look.
