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 – and their delivery times.

Same day delivery

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 – including their flagship in Arjan, 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.



Born in London, Oddmuse was created by Aimee Smale, who wanted to make slow fashion more attainable, and the brand is now known and loved for its high-quality fabrics and flattering silhouettes. The kind of timeless blazers, dresses and sets that transcend seasons, the pieces are designed to be reworn over and over again. You can now shop their dedicated UAE site, with same-day delivery offered on orders placed before 3pm Monday to Saturday for Dhs30, and next working day delivery available for Dhs20. Returns are possible, but you’ll need to fund the cost of the return yourself.


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. In Dubai, you can get four-hour delivery for orders placed between 9am and 2pm, and there’s a same-day delivery option for the wider UAE when ordering before 12pm. Orders placed after 3pm will qualify for next day delivery.

Next day delivery

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, as well as their newly launched mens line. Next day delivery is available within Dubai, and is priced at Dhs20 for orders under Dhs200, or it’s free for orders above Dhs200. If you’re in the other emirates, expect delivery within 1 – 2 days.



Next, the British brand which caters to women, men, kids and homewares, has an online store which delivers to the UAE. Earlier this year, they opened their first UAE warehouse, and with it introduced next-day delivery. UAE orders must be placed by 11.30pm to make next day delivery, and it’s available only on items stocked within the UAE warehouse, so you’ll need to check at check-out whether that applies to what’s in your basket. There’s free shipping on orders over Dhs150, or a fee of Dhs20 for orders below this threshold. Next’s website also carries a selection of other big name brands including Ted Baker, Missguided, Adidas and Nike.
