Fatima AlBanawi’s Oversized Pastel Suit by This Saudi Designer is the Ideal Business-Meets-Pleasure Look


Women’s suits are back stronger than ever, and Fatima AlBanawi has made an inspiring contribution to the trend. While a fitted one does turn many heads (think: Zendaya at the Vanity Fair’s 2022 Oscar After-Party), an oversized one is just what you need to look polished yet playful this summer, especially when worn in a color like AlBanawi’s pick.

The pastel blue pieces worn by the actor and filmmaker were made by fellow Saudi Arwa Al Banawi, the designer who is known for her women’s looks rendered with cool masculine details. The oversized blazer came with a lapel collar and rolled-up sleeves to reveal contrasting white cuffs, and the trousers featured a straight, wide-legged shape. To balance the baggy silhouette out, AlBanawi paired the suit with a fitted taupe crew neck t-shirt and pointed-toe Jimmy Choo heels in the same color, and kept accessories to a minimum with gold earrings, a small metallic clutch, and a couple of cuff bracelets.


The former Vogue Arabia cover star was photographed in the noteworthy look while in Dubai, standing by the Burj Khalifa. The Paranormal star was also seen with Saudi presenter Sarah Dundarawy in the post, in which she hinted at making her way to the emirate very soon.
