I’m leaving tonight for my trip to Dubai and I’ve been thinking carefully about packing. Now our itinerary is pretty packed and every night we are expected to dress up in cocktail wear, so I’m packing more than I would if I wasn’t going out to so many fancy restaurants. But I wanted to share one tip that has occurred to me recently, and that is, the versatility of the multi-coloured skirt, and in fact it’s more functional than just a two coloured pattern. You may think that it would limit what you can pack, but I’m going to show you how versatile it really is.
This floral skirt I’m packing (from Forever New) I can wear in a multitude of ways, for different occasions. I can take it dressy, or just wear it to the shopping mall.
Here I’m making it something that I’d wear out to dinner or to the High Tea that I’m going to have at the Burj Al Arab (how exciting is that!), I’d add a little shrug or pashmina to cover my shoulders for cultural modesty.
