A self-proclaimed “stylish mama in her 50s”, Eman Bani Hashim is laughing in the face of every age and fashion stereotype you’ve ever heard. Inspired by the timeless glamour of Audrey Hepburn, she is not one to live by the rules when it comes to dressing – for her, any outfit is possible when styled correctly. A government official by day and a lover of trends by night, this Emirati mom of two may just change the influencer game as we know it.

If her last name sounds familiar, that’s probably because you’ve come across the work of one of her daughters. Alamira Noor Bani Hashim is behind No.FiftySeven Boutique Café and the region’s most exclusive dinner event, The Dinner Club by No.57, while Alamira Reem Bani Hashim is lending her bohemian touch to homes and restaurants around the country as one half of The Native Bohemians. Talk about getting it from your mama. 

You only have to look at her Instagram account to see that she’s all about the details. From strategically knotted belts and layered necklaces to mismatched earrings and incredible handbags, standout accessories paired with clever styling tricks are the key to always looking polished for Bani Hashim. It’s very rare that you’ll find her wearing a piece conventionally and, although you may have some of the same high-street items as she does, you probably haven’t thought of wearing them the same way.

Besides her age, it’s her individuality and penchant for customization that really sets her apart. Talking exclusively to Savoir Flair about maintaining great style at any age, Eman Bani Hashim shares her fashion secrets in the gallery, below.

For her, style knows no age.
