With Ramadan underway, the style team at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island has curated a collection of sophisticated, staple pieces designed to infuse this seasons latest trends with the appropriate dress codes for the Holy Month.
During Ramadan we turn to more modest dress, and at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi’s premier shopping and lifestyle destination, we would like to help you embrace your sense of fashion and avoid the last-minute guesswork when it comes to selecting a suitable yet stylish outfit each day.
Effortless and easy-to-wear in summer, the popular maxi-dress and skirt variation are two items that will remain firm favorites in the wardrobe this month. When choosing a full-length dress or skirt, opt for one that flows and has a lot of movement to it for a chic appearance. Simple and color-block- maxi-dresses and skirts can be easily accessorized with a bright clutch and sandals for Iftars, yet if you’re opting for a patterned maxi, keep shoes and accessories simple and let the design of the dress do the hard work for you.
Floral mid-dresses are bright, colorful and easy-to-wear for both work and smart occasions. The midi-length lends to their flexibility which can easily transition from day into night.
Whilst dresses and skirts are still our firm summer favorites, why not consider trousers during the Holy Month? Ideal for both casual and smart occasions, cropped printed trousers will boost your look with a unique flair that can easily be matched with a simple t-shirt for daytime, or a crisp blouse with a statement necklace for the evening.
Elegant shawls are also a simple way to cover up without going overboard on extra layers. We love their versatility, as you can throw them on or off as you venture from one venue to the next. For a touch of evening glamour, try adding a precious brooch to complete your look.
If we’ve ignited your mood for shopping, then visit The Galleria to experience more than 100 contemporary and luxury brands, 50 of which are new to Abu Dhabi.
The Galleria will be open from 10am – 3pm and then again from 8pm – 1am from Saturday to Thursday and 8pm – 1am on Fridays, all throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan.
