The Dubai Food Festival
Comfort is key for this event, but with the city flocking to the Beach Canteen-themed food festival, you’ll still want to look your best. Opt for easy street style pieces, like a brightly colored jacket, a chic sweatshirt, and brightly colored accessories so you can look stylish without being self-conscious.

Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships
With so many athletes around, it’s fun to play the part and blend in. Even if 40-love language is lost on you, there’s no reason you shouldn’t embrace the tennis look from head to toe, or if that’s too much for you, incorporate one piece like a pleated tennis skirt or comfortable tennis shoes into your look.

Festival season has descended on Dubai, which means breaking out your avant-garde pieces, bohemian looks, and most colorful streetwear. If you plan on dancing, forget a layered ensemble and opt for clothes you can really move around in. We love floaty maxi dresses or simple shifts for festivals. They’re functional and fashionable and perfect for when the dancing mood seizes you.

Dubai Jazz Festival
Jazz rhythms are complicated, but your outfit doesn’t have to be. Try a statement piece that possesses lots of movement, like a fringed skirt to go with the laidback mood of the festival. Or elevate a casual look like a tee and striped trousers with great statement jewelry for a classier experience.
