Fashion is a big deal in Beirut — and looking good can go a long way!
Whether you’re visiting Beirut for pleasure or business, here’s how to look fashionable for all occasions.
1. Business trips
For the guys, two-button suits in navy or black with designer belts and loafers are recommended if you are in town for business, Business Insider reports.
The Lebanese are big on designer brands, and bigger branded logos are always a plus.
Finally, don’t forget to accessorize! A nice watch, sunglasses and pocket square can make you stand out.
For ladies, a solid-colored dress looks classy and keeps you cool in the scorching sun.
Top it off with a nice designer bag or sunglasses, and you’re good to go.
Pro tip: Zara stores are a great place to shop for any business occasion.
2. Casual strolls
If you just want to walk the streets or go out with friends, a nice shirt with some designer jeans will do nicely.
Women certainly have a few more options to choose from. Nice jeans, shorts, skirts, a summer dress — pretty much anything goes.
But to stand out, don’t forget to accessorize!
3. Parties and clubs
It’s all about the skin at Beirut’s hottest clubs!
A crop top and skirt is a common sight at a Beirut club.
Flashy dresses, heavy makeup and heels are also a dime a dozen.
For the guys, tighter dress shirts are always appropriate. If you have the build, don’t be afraid to show it off.
4. Formal gatherings
For fancier evening events and galas, CNTraveler recommends draped gowns made by local designers like Rabih Kayrouz or Krikor Jabotian.
Custom-tailored suits and designer names can be found at these men’s locations.
If you need to go shopping while in the capitol, check out Beirut Souks or your nearest shopping mall.
