Sleeveless jacket: Living in a hot climate makes it difficult to wear coats and jackets. With a sleeveless option you won’t overheat, but can also layer it when travelling to cooler climes. Dh595, Banana Republic


Rose gold leather skirt: A new metallic colour puts a modern twist on the classic leather pencil skirt, and can take you from day to night. Dh299, River Island


Leather biker jacket: The leather biker jacket will never go out of fashion and is also so versatile. It’s worth spending a bit more money to invest in a real leather one, like this one from Sandro. Dh2,440, Sandro


Plain white T-shirt: A classic and something you really couldn’t live without. Choose a T-shirt in a thin, loose-fitting material so it lasts all year round. Dh129, H&M


Pleated midi skirt: Green is going to be the must-wear colour of 2017, and this pleated style of skirt can easily be dressed up or down. Dh129, Ella at


Sparkly top: A sequinned top is a go-to day-or-night piece that can be styled in so many ways. Dh199, H&M


High-waisted dark denim jeans: If you only buy one pair of jeans, opt for dark denim as it’s the most versatile. A high-waisted style is most flattering. Dh299, Levi’s


Oversized white shirt: Putting a 2017 update on the classic white shirt, this oversized style will be your go-to classic staple. Dh199, H&M


Leather LBD: Leather was a huge trend on the spring/summer 2017 catwalks. This black dress can be worn for day or night. Dh990, BCBG Max Azria


Black trousers: A wardrobe essential, black trousers can be worn for so many occasions. This pair have a slight flare at the hem, making them on-trend for 2017. Dh820, Sandro
