Can you guide us through creating a capsule collection with 5 items from the latest Bouguessa FW23 collection?
This first look combines everything you need in a capsule collection. Start with the Wei Turtleneck top - it's versatile and effortlessly chic. You can pair it with everything from jeans to skirts. Next, the Alba oversized double shirt - an absolute must! It's perfect for a polished look with trousers or a casual vibe when worn open over a tee. Then, the Jill Signature Blazer and Jill Signature Pants. Wear the the Jill Signature Blazer over a dress or jeans to add a cool edge, and the Jill Signature Pants can be dressed up and down to suit your style and occasion. And finally, a great coat. The Ross long coat coat is modern, and a great investment, its structured shoulders will instantly elevate any outfit.
What do you feel is a must-have versatile piece that one must have that can work for the Dubai winter but can also be incorporated in a winter packing list for cold weather?
For both Dubai's mild winters and colder destinations, the Irina Faux Leather skirt is your go-to this season. It's trendy and adaptable. Wear it with the Moez t-shirt and loafers during the day, or a bodysuit and heels at night. When in colder spots, add a cropped sweater, tights, and boots for a cozy, chic look.
What are the latest trends for shoes or accessories that you feel can elevate the previously described capsule collection and make it cool and trendy?
Accessories are a great way to inject trends into to your capsule wardrobe and get you excited about getting dressed.Think red or metallic shoes and bags to add a pop of color and shine. Bags with embellishments or textures are in, and for a bold trend statement, go for an XL bag. Also, chunky earrings and necklaces are the accessories to watch this season.
