Dubai World Cup: Top style tips for men and women
Despite the exciting horse races, the real sport is the fashion trends and styles on display. Here’s our guide to dressing (fabulously) for the big event
WOMEN: Go Floral: What’s nice about Jacques Vert’s newest collection in Debenhams Mirdif City Centre is that every piece of clothing has a matching set to go with it, be it shoes or hat or a necklace. So you don’t have to worry about your outfit looking too “messy.” WOMEN: It’s all about the hat: A hat is a must at the World Cup. Luckily, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s milliner, Rachel Trevor-Morgan, was in Dubai for her collaboration with British occasion wear Jacques Vert. Her personal favorite from the collection is this disk piece, easy to wear with almost any hairstyle.

WOMEN: Or the headpiece: If you’re not a big fan of hats, go for a stylish headpiece like this one. It’s perfect for the affair and doesn’t require as much preparation or maintenance. You can try. WOMEN: Statement shoes are an essential. WOMEN: Maxi a-la-mode: Though many may opt for formal day wear, stand out in the crowd with a flow-y maxi dress. Pair it with a big hat, shades, and red lips, and you are good to go! This style says effortless yet timelessly chic, according to us. MEN: Suit up gentlemen: Never underestimate the power of a good suit. We’ve learned that time and time again from Harvey Specter in Suits. The World Cup is a chance to opt for lighter colored suits, such as beige, light grey, or navy blue. MEN: Watch the watch: Not many men realise how much accessories can make or break an outfit. A good watch goes a long way at events. You will shake hands with people and have a close-up conversation. They will, look, at, your, watch. Make sure it’s worth their while. This Gucci watch is one of our favorites. MEN: The one and only: The handkerchief is one underrated accessory. Handkerchiefs add a certain “high class” vibe to any suit jacket. Try this Gucci piece for a subtle look. MEN: Shades for a cause: TOMS offers shades in the latest trends that are perfect for this event. In addition, with every pair you buy, TOMS helps restore sight to an individual through sight-saving surgery, prescriptions glasses, or medical treatment. MEN: Khaki turn-ups: This style essentials go well with almost anything. They can be worn casually with a tee or formally with a suit jacket. For the races, choose khaki turn-ups for a classic style twist. Pair them with a dark suit jacket, aviators, and don’t forget the handkerchief.
