What's your angle?

Geometry in school was pure hell but in fashion we couldn't love it more. While geometric prints keep coming back in fashion every other season, here it is all about creating a mashup of mix and match. Most people would never like never wear checks and stripes together but the thing about fashion is that it's always more fun to break rules than to follow the crowd.
This is how you wear your stripes and checks together:

Local Treasures

Lately, I've been very inspired by modestly dressed bloggers from the Middle East. I'm drawn to these hijabistas because they create a balance between their style and belief without losing touch with today's world.  It reminds me of this wonderful quote I read, "The clothes you wear reflect the things that are hidden deep inside of you. They’re a statement about something close to your world. Fashion is a way of turning yourself inside out." (I Don't Have a Thing to Wear: The Psychology of Your Closet by Judie Taggart)
The past year in Muscat has certainly inspired and influenced my style. I'm drawn to unique silhouettes, luxe fabrics and stylish layers. I love finding local designers and boutiques because they pay extra attention to details, comfort and aren't massed produced. 

This is what I wore for a Iftar gathering with a few friends:

  • Wedges are definitely the way to go if you're not a stiletto-gal but still want to benefit from the extra height and leg-elongating effects of high heels. These foot-friendly shoes are also instant outfit updaters.
  • Usually infamous for their casual appeal, if you're looking for a formal pair for a night out then I recommend the ones I'm wearing. They would great with an LBD and maxi dress alike.  
  •  Amp those chic pyjama pants with a plain tank and printed wedges. They help to make billowy pants look crisp and more elegant for a perfect day time look.
