Fashion: it is for everyone, no matter what shape, size, or height they are. Wanting to break the myth about the existence of one perfect body type, we decided to launch a new series of fashion features where we will be rocking the hottest new fashion trends knowing that our diverse bodies are strong, healthy and worth loving in every single way. This time around, I decided to style Senior Writer Nadine Zaki and myself into two different outfits each, knowing that we have quite different body types, with the help of the talented young makeup artist, Shrouk Mahmoud.

Casually Preppy:

Want to go to a quick business meeting and then head out for some dinner with your friends without going through a full outfit change? Casually preppy is the exact type of outfit you’d want to go for, whereby you can look well put together yet slightly nonchalant and easy breezy.

Nadine’s look features a neutral color palette with the red tote adding a refreshing pop of color. The vest elongates her figure and ties the look together.

With a color palette that leans more towards pastel tones, my look is the perfect summer-to-fall transition. The shirt’s unique cut and simple pattern add oomph to the whole look and the silver sunglasses add a modern twist to it. The embroidered shoulder bag, which has been on our fashion radar for some time, adds a feminine touch to the outfit.


Girls’ Brunch Attire:

Fall is the perfect season to go out midday to grab a bite with your gal pals with such refreshingly crisp weather. What’s a more perfect outfit to rock than a loose dress, backpack and booties?

For Nadine’s look, we went for a long, colourfully patterned shirt dress and added a flattering waist belt to synch in the waist. The rose gold cat eye sunglasses fit Nadine’s face perfectly and the brown leather backpack matched the whole outfit seamlessly.


For my look, we went with the gingham print, which has been the rage this year, and an A-line cut for the dress. Wanting to add a more edgy touch to it, we threw in some fishnet tights and a studded backpack.

On an ending note, it is important to remember that fashion exists so we can use it to express our identities; not so we can hate our own bodies. Our bodies have gotten us to where we are today- they have carried us through tough circumstances and harsh times, the least we can do is love them.
