Editor’s Pick: Back To The Beach
The glorious Dubai winter weather is back – here’s what The Gaggler is packing for the beach….
THE TOP-NOTCH TWO PIECE
Made of luxury Italian fabric, this classic triangle bikini by Dubai-based brand Caha Capo has removable padding and an adjustable halter and tie back, with tie-fastening pants that adjust perfectly to fit. We love this version in fresh air blue that matches a faultless Dubai sky.
THE FAB FLATS
A gorgeous sunshine shade that looks awesome with a tan, we love these happy, strappy flat sandals from Zara.
THE SERIOUSLY GOOD SUNSCREEN
Suncare that offers amazing protection from the sun as well as making your skin look perfect is a beauty buy that we can’t get enough of. With a high concentration of antioxidants and nutritive skincare ingredients, plus those that fight free radicals Sisley’s Tinted Suncare Stick is made without using the harmful chemicals Oxybenzone and Octinoxate, which are damaging to coral and marine life. Offering brilliant coverage to minimize flaws with SPF50+ protection, we love the stick formulation for easy application.
THE BEACH BABE BLING
With three different chains in one design, you’ve nailed the layered look in one gorgeous piece. Wear with our chosen bikini and sundress for easy beach boho glam.
THE COOL COVER-UP
An effortlessly stylish piece that looks as great on the beach as it does after dark – buy now, wear forever!
THE HOT HOLDALL
Handmade in Morocco with ultra-soft leather straps, this super-smart basket from homegrown Dubai brand Desert Totes can be worn on your back or used handheld – perfect if you fancy cycling to the beach or pool!
THE BRILLIANT BEACH TOWEL
Designed by ex-Dubai resident Jana Khoury, Anaskela beach towels are not only beautiful, super-lightweight, compact and ultra-absorbent, they’re also made of recycled plastic bottles, making them a super-stylish and eco-friendly must-buy.
THE AWESOME AFTERSUN
This Aloe Vera-enriched, vegan body balm is blended with orange, lemon and grapefruit extracts, which deliver a delicious citrus hit. Divine as an after-sun, we like to pop ours in the fridge for a cooling treat that smells delicious and leaves our skin silky-soft, soothed and moisturized.
THE BEACH-TO-BAR BEAUTIFIER
We love organic beauty brand French Girl, and this gorgeous, multi-purpose dry oil is just the thing for enhancing sun-kissed skin. Infused with mineral oxides, pigments, and nourishing essential oils to moisturize the skin and add a subtle glow, rose and sandalwood lend a subtle scent without synthetic fragrances. Perfect to smooth on after showering, pre-sundowners.
