OOTD: An Arabian Theme Outfit

Hey peeps. Another day, another outfit post. I promised this year would be a year of outfit posts on Fashion and Style Police, and so far, I am keeping to that promise. Say hello to the second outfit post of the year – An Arabian Theme Outfit.

I got this lovely kaftan in the Gold Souk (market) in Dubai some weeks ago, and I really like it. I wore this outfit to a birthday party the other day, and it felt good to stand out. I was as colourful as the venue; it was a play center in Essex.

I remember braving the cold for a few minutes to get this photos taken. It was freezing cold on that day with the fog and all, so I had to wear sensible shoes, and my gold old sneakers came to the rescue. I am not one to just take photos for the blog. What you see me rocking on here, is how I was dressed for the entire day.

I like my kaftans short. The long designs swallow my petite frame up most of the time, so I like to go for this length. I find them comfy and stylish.

I remember going round the Dubai market with my sister, in search of the right kaftans. Most of the designs out there were longer than I wanted, so it took me some time to find the styles I wanted.

It is all in the details for this beauty right here. I like the attention to the details on the kaftan. It stands out and I can see a lot of work went into it. I love it.

Let Your Beachwear Do The Talking

The holiday season is here and the beach is calling. I have a beach holiday planned for later in the year but I know many people are lying on a beach somewhere (or planning to) soaking in the sun and tanning up. So I thought a beachwear post would be timely.

Here are some beachwear hacks you should remember this season:

 

Remember There Are Tankinis

When we say beachwear, many people automatically think of a bikini, forgetting there are many others. If you do not like your belly area, or you do not feel comfortable rocking a bikini, remember there are 1 pieces and tankinis.

Go for Quality

I like to invest in the best when it comes to beachwear because I hardly ever buy them. So when I do, I go for quality pieces and I make sure I have a couple of them every time. I currently have 4 pieces for different uses, which I think is a good number to have.

 

Choose the Right Beachwear for your Body

Different beachwears suit different body types and shapes, so make sure you have the right piece for your body shape. Bra tops are fab for busty women, halter-neck top bikinis offer support and create enviable cleavage. Bikini tops with built-in padding or underwiring is great for women who are small on top. Ruffles or prints pieces are great for slim women as they create the illusion of curves. High-cut bikini bottoms make your bum appear smaller and your legs appear longer. I can go on and on with more tips, the bottom line is you knowing what designs suit your body shape and buying them.

 

Go for Bright Colours in the Summer

Take advantage of the sun and go for bright coloured pieces this summer. They always look so good.

 

Remember Your Kaftans & Sarongs

I have stocked up on a few kaftans and sarongs ready for the beach and you should too, if you are planning a beach holiday. I find them so comfortable and chilled out. They are great for chilling on a beach. I always go a size up when shopping for these as I like it to be airy and free. There are so many stylish designs in the stores so keep your eyes open.

 

Are you going on a beach holiday this year? Do you have any beachwear tips to share?
