To celebrate summer’s early arrival, Aloushi’s, the UAE’s popular online boutique founded by Alia Jashanmal, has handpicked a collection of summer must-haves that should be seen in a refreshed wardrobe. Whether looking to relax and unwind at the latest beach club or take advantage of the plethora of infinity pools Dubai offers, this thoughtfully curated, sustainable, summer-essentials shopping list should be on your radar.
There’s something for everyone; from a moisturizing SPF hybrid multistick, cooling aloe facial mist, and fruity perfumes to a cute high-waisted purple floral bikini, matching lilac kimono, and sustainably-crafted shoes to adding a little bling with aqua ear cuffs and a bangle, there’s no doubt you will be adding a one of these to your shopping cart.
Cute and compact, with moisturizing and anti-aging properties, the Bare Multistick comes with SPF 50 and is the perfect beach bag must-have. Made for all skin types and tones, it also soothes and nourishes the skin with all-day hydration. If there is one thing you need to have at your side in the summer heat, it’s the Bare Multistick. 160 AED.
The Kal Hans Aloe Cucumber Mist is a much-needed summer item. It protects, soothes, and maintains the skin’s surface quality, while the aloe vera helps repair sun damage, slows down aging, and makes skin more supple. It’s like magic in a bottle – a little facial spray to keep your skin cool and hydrated out in the desert heat. 50g bottle, 50 AED.
Time spent by the pool in bikinis and cover-ups is perfectly complemented by a fruity perfume that lingers all day. The Vertical scent by Baron Bishop is a fresh and sparkling oil-based scent evoked by lemon and bergamot. A fragrance of verticality, able to perfectly combine the top notes to the base. The petit, elegant glass bottle is just the right size to fit in your beach bag or nighttime purse. 15ml, 205 AED.
This Zonarch bikini has a non-padded, underwire style top that is very feminine and comfortable. The shoulder straps are adjustable, and the back ties into a bow. The 90’s inspired high-waisted bottom has a beautiful cut to accentuate your hips, with medium coverage and a seamless finish. Sizes range from XS to L. Set is 720 AED (sold individually).
The Basha Neutral is handmade with vegetable-tanned leather and natural dyes, making them the ultimate sustainable and luxurious tropical shoe. Coming straight out of a tropical beach day-dream, it goes with every beach outfit you can throw on and is even safe to get wet- just make sure to leave them in the sun to dry after. Size 37-40 EU, 379 AED.
Handmade in Abu Dhabi with carefully selected materials and embellishments, Alia Jashanmal’s Arora kimono is a printed lilac fabric with lotuses embroidered through it. The addition of lilac tassels sewn onto the hemline gives a very feminine feel to the light and summery kimono. Pair the kimono with the Zonarch Aloha Blossom bikini set, head over to lounge at the pool deck, and unwind with a novel. One size, 1,160 AED.
Accessorize your summer outfit with Talita’s reflection bangle and blue ear cuff. The Reflection bangle subtly adds an elegant touch to beachwear, while the ear cuff adds a pop of playful color. Made with 925 Sterling Silver, a natural precious metal, with Zircon and Natural Stones, these jewellery must-haves should definitely be added to your online cart. Blue Ear Cuff, 750 AED and Reflection bangle, 1,296 AED.
