Dubai fashion brand Deborah Henning brings minimalist style to the UAE.

Though I am still perfecting my ‘just out of bed’ chic look (a girl can hope to nail it one day) Deborah Henning’s pieces already conquer the challenge. The brand strikes a beautiful balance between interesting cuts, comfortable fabrics and an effortless, model-off-duty feel.

After my first glimpse at the Deborah Henning SS16 Collection, I was itching to get my hands on the pieces. Subtle is not a word often used in Dubai, but this emerging designer is an expert at adding understated, stylish touches to her clothing.

I paired the label’s signature draped back t-shirt with my favorite pair of distressed denim and lace up sandals. The outfit was ideal for a lazy weekend morning and still looked smart enough to go from an ocean side walk to a late breakfast with friends.

You can never go wrong with a black tee and this asymmetric top puts a fun twist on the classic. Its unique cut tastefully reveals a bit of side and back, keeping your look cool and breezy in the summer’s hotter temperatures. I topped off my outfit with my quirky, cat ear baseball cap - because, why not?

With my hectic schedule, I love pieces that can seamlessly transition from day to night. These cropped boyfriend trousers and black and gold blazer tackled the task with ease. I snagged my pair of black mules, grabbed my go-to work bag and was ready to head out the door. For the evening, I added extra oomph with a bold necklace, simple clutch and dark lip.
