We apologise to your bank balance in advance…

The UAE seems to be taking serious steps to improve its e-commerce offering for residents in the country. More and more of our favourite fashion brands now have dedicated websites that deliver to the Middle East, meaning that you don’t have to miss out on getting your fashion fix.

Here are some of our favourite fashion brands that deliver to Dubai.

Homegrown brands

Sand Dollar Dubai

For dreamy beach, swim and resortwear, few do it better than Sand Dollar Dubai. Beginning as a pop-up in 2010, this homegrown brand has become one of Dubai’s go-to destinations for fabulous, curated fashion. There are several Sand Dollar boutiques across the city, but their best selection of brands can be found online. Here pieces from resortwear icons including Hunza G, Melissa Odabash and Love Shack Fancy are all stocked. Best of all, there’s three-hour delivery in Dubai, and same day delivery across the wider UAE.


Chic Le Frique

From entrepreneur Sara Rahbari comes Chic Le Frique, an online, UAE-based fashion boutique that’s beloved for its trendy linen two-piece sets, floaty maxi dresses and breezy kaftans. The brand has grown from humble roots in the region to an internationally embraced name, with pieces inspired by Dubai’s cosmopolitan look and feel. Next day delivery is available for UAE orders placed before 3pm.


The Giving Movement

Stay stylish and comfortable with eco-friendly fashion and fabulous fits from The Giving Movement. Fabrics are 100% sustainable, and everything is sourced locally in the UAE. Think t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, joggers, jackets available in every colour. There’s same day delivery if you order by 4pm in Dubai (excluding Sundays), and a flat fee of Dhs15. Not only that, The Giving Movement donate Dhs15 to charity partner Dubai Cares & Harmony House for every item sold.


Beach City

Can’t find anything you like in the mall? Beach City carries all the poolside chic outfits you’ve seen on Instagram models in Ibiza and Mykonos – and you can get your hands on pieces you wouldn’t really find anywhere else in the city. Delivery via Fetchr costs Dhs20 and if you order before 5pm, you’ll receive your package the next day (except Friday). For those last minute purchases, you can also get same day delivery if you order by midday. You can even collect your package from the warehouse, but payment needs to be made online first. Returns are free within a seven-day window and will be collected by courier.



For all your luxury purchases and must-have designer items, Ounass can deliver straight to your door within two-hours in some cases. The ‘home of luxury’ is ideal for last minute gifts, or treat-yourself pieces just in time for the weekend.



Homegrown concept Namshi has become the Middle East’s number one online fashion store since launching in 2011. The website stocks popular labels including Nike, Missguided, Topshop, Puma and Forever 21 as well as many more lesser known brands. The platform offers same day delivery in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi if the order is placed before 4pm (except on Fridays). You can return or exchange your items via Namshi’s courier who will come within two days of you notifying the company.



Dubai-born L’Couture was founded by resident Lyndsay Doran who found a gap in the market for high-quality athleisure wear that fits all shapes and sizes. Putting fashion to fitness, classic L’Couture sets of gym shorts and leggings can be paired with sports bras in neutral and signature colours, but they also introduce seasonal collections, including their new Club LC collection. All collections are designed in house, and there’s both ladies and kids collection, which come with free next day delivery. Pieces start from Dhs145.
