We’ve rounded up the region’s most stylish social media insiders to give us their top tips for the season
UAE-based fashionistas share style secrets and summer shopping lists.
Mariyah Gaspacho, 36 is the woman behind the blog Mahryska, which is the Russian translation of her name. Mariyah, who is based in Dubai and is also a photographer, exudes a laid-back chic style that is perfect for our summer heat. She says this season calls for simplicity. “I recommend sticking to light, easy fabrics and soothing colours,” she says. “As for shopping, I’ve learned to stick to my basics. They will last you longer and I believe you can play around with them more rather than one-time trendy pieces.”
