Here at Savoir Flair, it’s not just sartorial matters that dictate our days. As much as we like to see you work hard and dressed to the nines, we also like to inspire you to enjoy the best getaways. So just before you set your OOO auto-replies and get started on the long weekend ahead, scroll through to see where the region’s trendsetting crowd – Dana Hourani, Dalia Nsouli, and Nadya Hasan included – escapes to for holidays, plus must-visit hotspots and styling tips to get cop their looks.
Style Tip: As easy-going as they may be, Lebanese women love to dress up. Raise the style stakes and go for unexpected outfit combinations that are laid-back, yet stylish.
Where to Go: Venture out on to Mar Mikhael Village, where you’ll see street art and graffiti galore as well as cozy cafes sprawled across the streets. Head to Antwork on Spears Street, a collaborative working hub where you can hang out like a local, such as Dubai-based fashion influencer Dana Hourani.
New York, USA
Style Tip: For a style masterclass in New York City dressing, look to Qatar-based influencer Dalia Nsouli. Here, she cleverly styles the season’s trendiest buy – a robe dress – with jeans underneath.
Where to Go: With an outfit like that, make sure you’ll be seen at New York City hotspot classics that are not tourist traps – think: ABC Kitchen (a great place to eat) and 11 Howard (a chic place to stay).
Style Tip: Every nook of this vibrant city is Instagram-worthy. Complement it through your choice of outfits, taking sartorial inspiration from Emirati fashion influencer Nadya Hasan in off-the-shoulder tops with billowing sleeves and ruffle-trimmed dresses.
Where to Go: For an authentic taste of Cuban cuisine, head to La Guarida for dinner, and to the city center at Old Havana to mingle with the friendly locals.
Style Tip: Get ready to soak up a lot of culture and pack your chic, free-spirited clothing. Think like Reem Kanj and opt for robes, linen dresses, and breezy bottoms.
Where to Go: For the ultimate in relaxation, check in at El Fenn, which boasts so much rustic and oriental charm that you’ll find it impossible to leave the hotel. If you do manage, experience glam camping and quad biking in the countryside at Scarabeo Camp.
