For those days when you're suffering from "nothing to wear" syndrome and want to add some fun to your closet, these are the sites to scour for the latest trends that won't break the bank.
1. GENUINE PEOPLE
If you're a fan of Zara but not a fan of wearing the same exact trendy pieces as everyone else, Genuine People is your new sartorial saviour. The e-commerce site offers up a sophisticated take on the latest trends, with new batches of product coming in every week. Prices range a little higher than your typical go-to fast fashion spots, with most falling between Dhs180 and Dhs750, but that's because you're paying for better quality and fabrics and pieces you can wear for more than just one season.
Shop at genuine-people.com
2. STYLE MAFIA
Originating from and inspired by the Miami fashion scene, Style Mafia's on-trend pieces range from matching co-ord sets to outerwear. Along with its budget fashion finds, the site also boasts its own mini magazine, Style Mafia x Miami, with plenty of inspiration and outfit ideas.

With a Kardashian-inspired aesthetic, Démodé's on-trend collection is equal parts Parisian and Kim K-influenced. Most of the items range from Dhs100 to Dhs950, but the sale section can feature styles up to 75 per cent - offering up some major steals.

4. PIXIE MARKET
If you're looking to step up your top game, Pixie Market is the place to do so. With dramatic bell-sleeved blouses, chunky oversized sweaters, corset-embellished tees and unique off-the-shoulder options, there are plenty of pieces to make for a standout wardrobe. The site also has outerwear, dresses, bottoms and accessories, almost all of which are under Dhs750.

Similar to Pixie Market, Storets offers up new styles every week along with fun sweaters and tops to incorporate into your wardrobe. It's outwear, however, is truly next level, with fun shearlings, colourful faux furs, puffers and more on offer. This is the place to step up your coat game.

6. FRONT ROW SHOP
With more unexpected pieces and playful patterns, Front Row Shop stands out from some of the other trend-driven sites. The unique prints and fabrics are still on-trend, but don't replicate the oft-similar styles featured at other retailers.

If you shook off Zendaya's clothing launch as just another celebrity fashion line, you're missing out. The singer/actress' direct-to-consumer line, Daya, is a collection of streetwear essentials with enviable items like jogger sweatsuits with edge, velvet jumpsuits, cool girl jackets and footwear. The pieces all sell for incredibly affordable prices - without sacrificing quality. Everything is marked under Dhs590, and who wouldn't want to wear something Zendaya-approved?
