A creative ensemble with a nod to tradition, Al Sabah works bold block color with a coral pink flamenco ruffle-sleeved top and a warm mustard-yellow mermaid-cut skirt. The eye-catching look is pulled together with chunky jewelry, a wide multicolored belt with tassel detailing and a scraped-back chignon.

Form-fitting with accentuated shoulders, this jacket deserves to be worn by a venerated businesswoman like Al Sabah. Paired with a black trouser-cum-skirt hybrid, the look is modest yet with a fashion-forward flair. Chunky silver cuffs and shoulder-grazing earrings are the perfect finishing touch.

Wearing a cobalt blue Gallabia kaftan with yellow accents, Al Sabah offers a glimpse of her laidback resort wear style. Reflective aviator sunglasses and gold hoop earrings add a touch of playful polish but it’s a suitably relaxed look that combines comfort and style.

Long Black Dress

The LBD (Little Black Dress) is a fashion classic – timeless and suitable for just about every occasion. Al Sabah offers her own spin on the wardrobe staple in this modest, floor-length gown with crochet sleeves. Accessories and footwear (a pair of black stiletto pumps and stud earrings), are suitably simple.

Minimalist Chic

Maintaining a minimalistic aesthetic, the entrepreneur looks effortlessly chic in neutral hues and a few choice accessories. A classic white ‘boyfriend’ shirt and wide-legged forest green pants are topped with open-toed leather heels with buckle and tie-detail, echoing the look’s utilitarian slant.

Last but certainly not least, this extravagant gold-flecked, feather-trimmed dress by Pria Kataaria Puri, reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamor. Stacked bangles and pink gemstone earrings are Al Sabah’s accessories of choice, complemented with a dark eye and oxblood nails to add a vampish twist.
