Street Style: Burgundy, Florals, and Patterns

Written by Amna Jamal

Hello people of Cairo! This is me Amna again giving you a look on how Cairenes decided to dress up this week. So this time I paid Citystars a visit with my reddish camera –don’t ask me why it is red my dad picked it for my birthday! – taking pictures of people I thought were outstanding than most.

I found myself taking pictures of anything that has burgundy, pinks, reds and anything in between and I’ve got to say it turned out pretty good! Now let’s get to the pictures:

 

Maha

Say Hi to Maha! She’s our first catch for today. Maha is into art and I know that you too can see that in her outfit. That floral skirt just couldn’t get any better; it has flowers in light pink, beige and burgundy. She made a good decision in choosing her headscarf to be also in burgundy, she kept its tone well balanced with a neutral grey top. The 90s inspired denim vest & tanned backpack gives a cool, boho, “I don’t give a damn” vibe which you can’t help but love.

 

Verna

Our next catch is Verna, if you talked to her you’ll know that her spirit blooms just as those cute flowers in her blouse. She wore a floral blouse on khaki green skinny jeans. Personally, I’ve never liked khaki green colored pants but recently they’ve been storming Cairo and hers actually looks good!

I asked her where she got her outfit: the top is from Rojada, the Pants and the shoes are from Stradivarius. You can thank me in the comments below!

 

Roba

Roba here chose some kick-ass palazzo pants. For your information palazzo pants are my favorite thing this summer; they’re wide, they’re flowy and they provide just the right amount of breeze; so you can survive the heat!

She matched the patterns of those pants with a solid reddish top and a black headscarf, in her own words, to “keep it simple”.

The top is from LC Waikiki and palazzo pants from Rojada.

 

Now we want to know what you think?!

Do you like these outfits? Would you wear something similar? Let us know below in the comments! Also mention where you’d like me to pop-up next time for my next article covering Cairo’s street style 😉

 

 

About Mariem El Tagoury

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here!

    Amna, I’ve been meaning to read this for quite a while now, and I’m glad I did! I’m looking forward to your next fashion hunt 😉 Loved Roba’s outfit; I’d love to try something similar! Oh, and thank you VERY much for mentioning the stores where the ladies got their outfits.
