4 Slick Festival Looks For Your Man This Summer

How to dress your man to be the coolest guy at the festival.



Now that you have your festival season wardrobe sorted, it’s time to turn your attention to your partner. With everything from Formula One to the Dubai Film Fest coming up, you’ll want to make sure he’s looking tip-top when it comes to the latest fashion trends. With each look shoppable at AED 1 300 or less, there is no excuse for our guys not to look their best this season.

LOOK 1: THE TIMELESS TUX

Over the next few months, the region will play home to some high-level events where you’ll have to dress for the red carpet. For gentlemen, the timeless tuxedo combined with a black bow tie is the go-to outfit. Remember to tie that bow properly, never leave your waistband showing and don’t wear a belt. Pair with loafers or Oxfords.
