Be sure to attend the five-day event due to start on July 7 at The Galleria Al Maryah Island, to see Industry Fashion professionals hosting live streamed styling sessions ensuring you – and your closet – are ready for the hottest months of the year…

With the rise of Marie Kondo, decluttering and Khloe Kardashian-style organising building a capsule wardrobe (i.e. adopting a minimalistic ethos to everyday dressing) has been at the forefront of our to-do lists, especially as we’re now officially in the middle of Summer 2021.

As we roll into July, desperately trying to find ways to beat the sweltering summertime heat of the GCC, we find ourselves on the hunt for new pieces that can stand the test of time, true classics for our closets in order to avoid to same rigmarole next year. From crisp white button downs to maxi dresses, both of which can be dressed up or down with the timeless accessories, we’ve found a one stop shopping solution when it comes to curating the perfect summertime capsule wardrobe (with a few educational and Instagrammable opportunities thrown into the mix!)

Abu Dhabi Summer Of Style kicks off this week, boasting an five-day exclusive shopping event providing discerning fashionistas with opportunities to attend global styling masterclasses, summer sessions with regional tastemakers and, of course, plenty of opportunities to peruse the latest collections from your favourite luxury brands, all while narrowing down key pieces for your new paired back closet.

From July 7 – 11 at The Galleria Al Maryah Island, experience the best in summertime style and shopping from across 3,000 stores and boutiques. In the meantime, Bazaar shares a few key pieces to be on the lookout for when it comes to tailoring your own summer capsule wardrobe at Abu Dhabi Summer Of Style.
