Neons trend summer 2022

Who Says Neons Are Impossible to Pull Off?

This summer, we’re embracing standing out.

But it’s just so bright! I’m not that bold! Would any of these colours even work for me?

These questions come to mind for many women when they consider the neon colour trend. Here, I’m going to help you figure out how to take your summer wardrobe to the next level and finesse one of fashion’s hottest trends for summer 2022. Whether you want to go full-on bold or embrace just a tiny bit of fluorescent, here’s how to do it.

My future’s so bright I’ve got to wear shades!

If you’re unsure about anything neon, try a pair of summer sunnies, like these fun options below. 

Want to Splurge?

Check out the Medusa Biggie Sunglasses from Versace that were made famous by Notorious B.I.G. in the ’90s. When it comes to fashion, we’re definitely seeing a resurgence of the very recent past. These shades are available in three different colours (fluorescent fuchsia, acid green, and fluorescent yellow).

How to Style It

Pair it with a sundress, a subtle pair of sandals, and some hoop earrings. These glasses are bold enough, so there’s no need to overdo it.

Fluorescent Fuchsia Medusa Biggie Sunglasses, Versace

Acid Green Medusa Biggie Sunglasses, Versace

Fluorescent Yellow Medusa Biggie Sunglasses, Versace

Want a Sleeker Look?

If gold lion heads aren’t your thing, but going bold is, then branch out with this bright-green option from Boohoo on Voga’s Closet.

How to Style It

Like with the Versace picks, simplicity is key when wearing such a bold accessory.

Take a dip in the neon nail pond 

Are you looking for something that’s a bit more temporary, but will still raise your summer style temperature? Then don’t be afraid to experiment with extra loud shades for your next mani-pedi appointment with neon colours or nail art.

Want a Cute Little Coat?

Why not try Cote nail colours? They come in orange, pink, green, and yellow – and are vegan and cruelty-free! Cote also keeps the customer nail experience in mind, with formulas that are both long-lasting and chip-resistant.

No. 114 Neon Orange Nail Polish, Cote

No. 113 Neon Pink Nail Polish, Cote

No. 115 Neon Green Nail Polish, Cote

No. 116 Neon Yellow Nail Polish, Cote

Want to Blend Natural and Neon?

Try a bit of nude along with a hint of neon nail art for some temporary abstract fun, like these custom gel press-on nails from En Route Nails on Etsy.

Lime Green Abstract Swirls Custom Press On Nails, Etsy

The Not-So-Basic Neon Bag

When it comes to trends, every woman wants a great bag that’s stylish yet versatile, so knowing which neon shade could work in your wardrobe is important. I find that pink is a solid bet for a beauty of any skin tone. 

Want to Splurge?  

Italian brand Pinko’s chain bag is the perfect size for fitting all of our stash, from mobile phones to makeup. Its pebble-leather finish also means that it’s always in style, from season to season. A take on its popular ‘Love’ bag, this beauty seems to only be found in-store in the UAE, so I would act fast!

Want a Splash?

Check out this almost five-star rated and reviewed quilted crossbody with chevron detail and chain accent on Amazon. It also comes with a quaint little inside pocket – big enough to fit an iPhone!

Pink Crossbody Bag, Amazon

How to Style It

Pair it with a clean white T-shirt and summer denim, and out the door you go!

Neon from Tip to Toe 

If you’re like most women who love a great pair of shoes and wouldn’t dare miss a moment to find something special for summer, check out these brightly hued options.

Want to Splurge?   

Like Amina Muaddi, Malone Souliers has made a major splash in the region – and across the world – for its dynamic shoe designs and use of PVC. The ‘Maureen’ mules are no exception, with a stiletto heel and sharp pointed toe. 

Malone Souliers x Ounass Maureen 100 Mules in PVC, Ounass

Want a Splash?

Massimo Dutti is known for its classic interpretation of modern trends, and these heeled leather sandals made from Nappa sheepskin deserve be seen at your next Sunday brunch. 

Heeled Leather Mule Sandals, Massimo Dutti

How to Style It

Wear a nice, muted dress or jumpsuit that will allow your colourful footwear to be the focal point and conversation starter.

Now, This Is Next-Level Neon

This is for our ladies who love to live out loud and use style to express themselves. Whether you choose a dress, a printed jumpsuit, or a statement blazer, these styles are definitely extra when it comes to neon extravagance. 

Want to Dress to Impress?

This fluorescent green midi dress from Zara comes with a dose of extra flair, courtesy of key buttonholes on both sides. 

Buttoned cut out dress, ZARA

How to Style It

Open button holes seem too daring? Throw a white button-down underneath and pair with medium-wash skinny jeans and heeled sandals with black sunnies to balance the look.

Want a Playful Look?

Known for its vibrant prints, Desigual creates styles for those who aren’t afraid of a bit of colour. The ‘Coral’ jumpsuit is both beach- and brunch-ready with billowy open bottoms (not to mention that it’s made from sustainable materials). 

Coral Jumpsuit, Desigual

How to Style It

Throw on a denim jacket and chunky statement necklace for a bit more pop.

Want to Blaze through Summer?

House of Devereaux specialises in custom-made suiting, and its latest collection Tres Jolie is all about fun details for summer. Case in point: the playful fringe of the ‘Fete’ blazer in a bright, neon green paired with the ‘Ambre’ shorts. All items are made to order.

Fete Blazer, House of Devereaux 

How to Style It

Keep it crisp and clean with a white linen shirt, high-waisted medium-wash denim or shorts, and a coloured stiletto pump for full-on flash.

Keeping Neon Cultural

Modernity and tradition can blend seamlessly this summer with abayas in bright, beautiful shades.

Want a Streak of Colour?

Based out of The Galleria Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi, Strass Abaya designs pieces with subtle details and rich fabrics, like this lime-green version with pearlescent beading.

4 Arab Brands That Belong on Your Radar

Meet them before they go mainstream.

The Middle East is buzzing with creative talent and, for every success story like Huda Kattan and Natalie Trad, there are countless brilliant designers and entrepreneurs waiting to be discovered. But before you make it really, really big, you have to start small – enter: four emerging regional brands that you may not know, but should.

Touchless

Somewhere between the pandemic and the climate crisis, online store Touchless was created in 2020 by two Bahraini sisters with a passion for design and a finger on the pulse of what was needed to deal with the new normal. Starting with a 3D-printed device that helps to minimise contact with everyday surfaces – from door handles and lift buttons to shopping bags and taps – followed by 3D-printed washable wallets that carry just face masks and credit cards, the sisters quickly moved into creating 3D-printed handbags. 

Lightweight, versatile, and sustainable, each of the bags are guaranteed to be 100% designed and 3D-printed in Bahrain. And they’re as beautiful and contemporary as they are functional. The designers have amassed quite the following since they launched, with pieces being snapped up by fans as far afield as London and New York.

Lunae

“I was born and raised in Raleigh NC, but I pretty much make sure every person I meet knows about my Lebanese roots!” says Reem Alawar Mosleh, the one-woman show behind accessories brand Lunae. With a vision of creating high-quality, minimalistic jewellery for everyday wear, her collection is pretty, perfect for stacking, and – most importantly – ultra-affordable. “I’m a big fan of comfort in fashion. This is why the jewellery I source is always water-resistant and truly comfortable to wear throughout the day and night – I literally sleep, work out, and shower in my jewellery.”

SEE.MAS

Created by an Arab princess for women of the world, SEE.MAS offers a basic capsule of five everyday classics in its collection: the Tee, the Shirt, the Cami, the Pant, and the Dress – each of which has been designed keeping elegance and modesty in mind. Founded in Riyadh by HRH Princess Nouf Bander Al Saud after being unable to find clothes that fit her body shape nor her lifestyle, SEE.MAS was created specifically to address the needs of the modern Arab woman, using a neutral colour palette and form-flattering silhouettes as its foundation.

With an entirely female workforce, the company’s aim was simple: design smart and refined essentials that made the wearer feel beautiful, comfortable, and empowered. Sidestepping the traditional sizing system that she believed ignored the shape of women across the region, the Saudi princess developed a special fit system that’s based on real measurements of real women living in the Gulf. Ensuring the collection was not only thoughtfully designed but mindfully created, each piece is crafted from high-quality and environmentally friendly fabrics, making this a label both size-friendly and sustainably focused

Green Bar

Founded by Reem Al Khalifa, Bahrain-based apothecary Green Bar is all about raising awareness of the healing power of plants native to the Arab region, and harnessing that power into effective skincare products. Offering a full range of face, body, and home goods – as well as spa experiences to rediscover the healing culture of the region – products are handcrafted using as many botanicals as Reem can source from the Arabian Peninsular. These come not only from local farms, but also Green Bar’s own gardens. 

Quality-tested and bottled in small batches in its onsite laboratory to ensure that the freshest possible products make it to the shelves, all Green Bar ingredients are 100% natural and non-toxic, with only the finest botanical cold-pressed oils, all-natural fragrances, and directly sourced raw ingredients to ensure total traceability and transparency of origin.

4 (Easy) Ways to Snap Out of a Style Rut

Breathe new life into that boring old wardrobe.

At some point in our lives, we’ll all likely be hit by a style rut. The good news? It’s not permanent, and getting your groove back only takes a few simple steps. The difficult part, though, is how to recognise a style rut. Read on.

What are the signs of a style rut?

  • One of most recognisable signs is that you just don’t feel good about the clothes you have, so you end up wearing the same boring pieces all the time. You also find yourself not being creative, and putting thought into your outfits becomes too much of a chore for you.
  • The second sign is that when you find something you feel comfortable in, you buy as many pieces of it as you can, without questioning why – regardless of the quality and whether it fits your fashion style or not.
  • The third sign is when you start to hate shopping, and you only buy from one trusted brand that you have been buying from for ages.
  • The final sign is that you stay in your sports outfit (which could be your leggings and sport bra) the whole day – even when you are not exercising – just because it’s easy and comfortable.

If you recognise yourself in more than one of these signs, then it’s time to do something about it, starting with the following four tips. After all, life’s too short to wear boring clothes!

1. Learn to Let Go

Always start from your closet. Do a closet edit and be honest about each piece you have. If it doesn’t make you happy, get rid of it. Be strict when it comes to this. If you can’t ask for help from a wardrobe stylist, it is important to carry out this step without mistakes.

2. Change Your Old Habits

A style rut means stagnation in what you have been doing without any changes. Consider your hairstyle, for instance. Why not book an appointment with your hairdresser and talk your concerns through? Together, decide on a new haircut or colour – or both! How about your makeup and skincare routine? You could stand to benefit from some changes. Maybe add a new colour of lipstick? Or even get some new accessories?

3. Learn to Shop Differently

As a stylist and personal shopper, my clients often say that they hate shopping for various reasons and, mostly, it’s because they don’t want to be lost in a pile of clothes not knowing what to buy. I recommend starting your shopping trip at your closet. Take those pants or that skirt that you love wearing most, and try to find a top or shirt and a pair of shoes to go with it. If you don’t have any, shop only for those specific items. This way, you can avoid the overwhelming feeling of getting lost between store racks. Slowly, you can even build a new wardrobe with this plan.

4. Gym Clothes Are Only for the Gym

The last thing you should do is to go for errands in your sports outfit. It is important to know that activewear is only for the gym or wherever you’re doing your workout for the day. Once that’s done, you should change into your favourite jeans-and-tee combo or pants. Leggings should never be worn as pants – that’s why they’re called leggings.

As a last word, don’t be ashamed when you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see. Know that only you can work on improving your image, but once you do, you’ll feel so much better.

So You’re Fed Up of Fast Fashion

Start at these UAE-based thrift stores.

An alternative to the traditional fashion shopping experience of factory-fresh items is making itself known in the UAE: thrifting. Not only is it a great way to create a unique look, but it’s also the definitive way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Thrift stores usually sell lightly used items while promoting sustainability by extending the life cycle of a product that might otherwise end up in a landfill. Sound appealing? Here are three UAE-based thrift stores that belong on your radar.

Fashion Rerun

What kind of pre-loved items do you sell?

We sell a wide selection of thrift, retro, and vintage clothing for men, women, youth, and children. Our collection includes activewear, jerseys, running shoes, caps, and so much more!

How long have you been in business?

Fashion Rerun has been in the market for just over four years now.

What makes you different from other thrift stores?

We offer a unique range in quality, price, and choice. Additionally, we are probably the only store that offers a full range of thrift, retro, and vintage.

How do you differentiate between thrift, retro, and vintage?

Thrift clothing is gently used items at a discounted price. They include current styles and trends. Retro clothing is newer clothing that imitates styles of the past (vintage). Vintage refers to items aged 15+ years that are rare and difficult to find, and therefore have higher value compared to retro and thrift clothing. 

Can I sell items to the store? 

Fashion Rerun does not buy from individuals.

Follow Fashion Rerun at @fashion_rerun.

FlairOnThrift

What kind of pre-loved items do you sell? 

FlairOnThrift sells pre-loved clothing that was lightly used and is in good condition to be worn. Our collection includes shirts, jumpsuits, jackets, and dresses. We also sell accessories, so you can find bags, jewellery, and even phone covers on our page.

How long have you been in business? 

FlairOnThrift was started on September 9, 2020 and has been around for almost a year now!

How is your concept different compared to other thrift stores?

FlairOnThrift is an Instagram-born store that, like a lot of similar stores, only sell products online through Instagram. The store was created out of passion for sustainability and a desire to cater to people on a budget. We work on a limited product drop basis instead of continuously having items for sale, as we believe this helps us to specially curate items for our customers. Unlike a lot of other stores, we also make sure that all our posts of sold items are archived so that everything you see on our page is up for sale, and not just marketing. We believe that this makes it much easier for customers to shop. 

Can I sell items to the store?

Yes! We accept clothing, shoes, and accessories such as bags, hats, or jewellery to be sold on our platform in exchange for store credit.

How does the process work? What items do you not take?

You can DM or contact us using the contact information provided on our Instagram page, and we will schedule a pick-up. After receiving the items, we will provide you with store credit. The items should not be overly damaged nor for kids.

Follow FlairOnThrift at @flaironthrift_dxb.

Rewynd Apparel

What kind of pre-loved items do you sell? 

We specialise in thrifted apparel that caters to both men and women such as jeans, outerwear, tees, blouses, accessories, and more. Our most sought-after products are from our Premium + Vintage line, where customers can find rare pieces dating back to the 80s and 90s, official merch, and even dead stock. 

How long have you been in business? 

We launched our online store along with our first collection in August of 2020, so we’re just about to celebrate our first anniversary!

How is your concept different compared to other thrift stores? 

Rewynd Apparel was founded by three sisters with a passion for fashion, styling, and marketing, and we aim to create a memorable thrifting experience for all our customers. Every piece on our website has been handpicked by us, every letter that we send out has been handwritten by us, and our packaging is zero-waste as well. We also enjoy showcasing a variety of styling options to reflect the ease and versatility of incorporating thrifted clothes into our customers’ personal styles.

Can I sell items to the store? 

Rewynd Apparel is a specially curated thrift store, and our business model and brand values are not tailored to suit the concept of consignments. Therefore, we currently do not accept consignments.

Follow Rewynd Apparel at @rewyndapparel.

Your Back-to-Work Wardrobe, Sorted

Regardless of where your desk is…

Now that a return to the office is an actual thing, women across the UAE are thinking about something they haven’t even considered for a while: what to wear to work. After months at home with just a laptop for company and only a fraction of presentability required for video calls, the traditional conventions of office attire have been, well, reworked. With hybrid working – spending part of the workweek in the office, part at home – now seen as a post-pandemic norm, you need a hybrid wardrobe to match. Yes, comfort is still key à la 2020, but boring office outfits are a no-no in 2021. Need some inspiration? Here are five fab outfit suggestions for your first (super stylish) week back at work.

Let’s Talk About the One-Piece Wonder

Your search for summer’s hottest swimsuits just ended.

If you’re packing your suitcase for somewhere fabulous this summer, there’s one piece that you literally can’t be without because of its versatility: an amazing swimsuit. Heck, you don’t just swim and sunbathe in it. You can wear it as a leotard when you’re doing yoga at dawn, under your jeans when you’re shopping, and with a sarong when you’re sipping sundowners  – a great swimsuit goes so much further than your average bikini. And while there’s always a time and a place for a terrific two-piece, we’re all about a one-piece wonder this summer since there are so many super-cool cossies out there. Here’s our top 10…

Gwyneth Paltrow’s ears have been adorned with some of the most magnificent jewellery in the world, she has revealed that her ear candy obsession goes way beyond wearing a statement hoop (or three) when she’s on the red carpet. Unveiling Goop’s debut jewellery collection G.Label earlier this month, the 48-year-old actress announced that she and her daughter Apple have a “little tradition” of getting a new piercing every year on the teenager’s birthday – and considering Apple turned 17 this May, that’s a pretty impressive number of holes that Gwyneth’s rocking on her A-list ears.

But she’s not alone in her penchant for multiple piercings. The ultra-adorned earlobe has emerged as one of the hottest fashion status symbols of the last five years, making the classic mono-piercing a most telling sign of being achingly uncool. But unlike other fashion capitals, finding somewhere to get an ear piercing in Dubai was a (w)hole lot of hassle – until fairly recently, that is. In fact, curating a Paltrow-perfect display is now easily doable. But where should you go to show your lobes some love? Find our list of go-to places for ear (and elsewhere!) piercings in Dubai, below.

It can also provide needle piercings for those who prefer a manual piercing using a sterile single-use needle. There’s an array of jewellery pieces to choose from – medical-grade surgical steel and 18-karat gold solid styles included.

Tucked away in one of the city’s coolest neighbourhoods, N.Sefi Jewellery & Piercings is the go-to for fashion-savvy types. Established in 2019, its luxury jewellery is made between Dubai and Italy using diamonds and precious gemstones set in 18-karat gold with the intention of being stacked, layered, mixed, and matched. Strict legal guidelines are in place, so you have to meet a minimum age requirement for certain piercings. Clients who are at least 18 years or older must provide their ID for any service from piercers. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian, and both child and legal guardian must have a valid ID or equivalent on hand. And if their last names are different? Proof of guardianship must also be presented.

You can pierce lots of different areas at N.Sefi – not just your ears.

Why It’s Time for an All-White Ensemble

Anyone for tennis?

Wimbledon, the most famous tennis tournament in the world, begins today. And while UAE tennis fans may not be able to get to the hallowed courts to watch this year’s matches – not only are we still on the red list, but access is just about as elusive as securing a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory – we can still obsess over the fashion from afar. So what better way to celebrate one of the best things about British summertime than getting dressed in the finest Wimbledon-inspired whites we can find?
