TheStyleTrain Takes UAE: Desert Safari

You know those things that happens ones in a lifetime, definitely the desert Safari falls in that category for me. Apart from the fact that i enjoyed every moment of and the memories will last forever the highlight for me was wearing the traditional Arabian attire we call Jalabia, which took me down memory lane. I bet y’all didn’t know i had a muslim background hence the name Sheik Ibrahim, from the bumpy ride to the different performances by the belly dancers to riding on the camel’s back glad i decided to go on such a beautiful adventure.

Dressing up a slouchy Tee Shirt

Dressing up a tee shirt might come across as being tedious but there is really a simple trick to converting your tee shirt into a night outfit. From pairing with denim jackets, blazers, waist coat, for me I decided to pair with this Ankara print jacket I have had and there you have it the birth of this style post.

Taking it back to the early 90s

Let’s go way back to the early 90s when fashion was about big necklaces and dark round shades, from the likes of Biggie, Tupac, Puff Daddy and the rest that helped reshape the hiphop game. Oversized clothing gives me so much because that’s my style area, I am at that phase where i am trying to proof to people that vintage doesn’t mean sloppy.
