NEXT is a British clothing and lifestyle brand with over 500 stores in the UK. Now, the company has reached the lands of the UAE and opened various branches in the country, including Dubai.
In terms of product variety, we do notice a huge range in this store. We’re talking about tops, bottoms, jackets, coats, and dresses, even.
What’s great about NEXT is that they offer garments for men, women, and children. Although we’ve observed that there’s more focus on people around their late 20s and older.
Looking at the style of the clothes in the store, the thing of note here is that they offer more casual styles and looks. If you’re in the market for more laid back and less formal outfits, you’ll certainly find them in this store.
The items also come in various colors and patterns, which is great! However, we noticed there are more neutral and dark colors available.
Stepping into the store, the first thing that might catch your attention is how well-lit the space is. With the establishment’s white walls and simple decor, you can instantly see the clothes on their racks.
In addition, the clothes are fairly well-organized. They are sorted into various categories and sub-types. The garments are separated into men, women, and children. Within each section, clothes are grouped together according to type.
Moving on to their customer service, it’s pretty basic. There are staff assistants that can fetch sizes for you if necessary.
Compared to the rest of the stores we’ve looked out, this store just has that and nothing more. No delivery options, no online platforms although they do put out discounts every now and then, though.
Overall, if you’re looking for a family clothing store that is filled with variety, we recommend heading to NEXT!

Founded in 1973, Riva is a clothing and accessories company that was initially offered for Middle Eastern women. Now with 140 stores around the country, Riva now also caters to customers beyond the Gulf.
In terms of clothing variety, this store is solely for females. However, they sell garments for older women and children as well.
Looking at the styles and colors, we notice a very simple, modest, and very modern aesthetic implemented in the products they have available. Type wise, it’s a huge variety ranging from tops to bottoms to dresses to coats!
What’s unique about this company is that they actually sell culture-specific clothing, such as hijabs and kimonos. The kimonos were honestly a bit of a surprise when we saw them, seeing as this company mostly caters to Middle Eastern women.
Moving on, let’s talk about the actual physical store, which at first glance, looks like a high-end boutique. The clothes are well organized and each garment type is grouped together for the customer’s convenience.
For clients who would want to shop at the comfort of their own homes, worry not! Riva has an online store on their official website.
We would like to note that in case you would want to return an item that has been delivered, the company can take it back and issue you a refund. However, be prepared to pay a return fee.
To sum it all up, if you’re looking for a shop that has beautiful, simple, and modest clothing for women, Riva is definitely the store to go to!

Superdry is a UK-based international brand that offers clothing for both men and women. Their style is mostly based on Japanese and British street style trends and colors.
Looking at their product range, we’ve observed the huge amount of clothing types available for each gender. Tops, bottoms, jackets, swimwear, sportswear, and more!
In terms of aesthetics, as we’ve said earlier, the company leans more on the street-style vibe. If you’re looking for more formal or less trendy clothes, we recommend looking for another store.
One of the nice things about Superdry is its customer service. First, they constantly have sales, both on their online and physical stores, which is great!
One thing we do have to note though is that for clients who live in Dubai, shipping your purchases might be a bit complicated. This is because your location would determine where the company would get the items for you and could lead to delays.
Instead, we advise that you use the online store to browse their items and head over to the physical store for the actual purchase.
Overall though, if you’re looking for street-style, colorful, and very modern clothes, we recommend heading to Superdry for the latest fashion trends!
Product Variety, Great Store Interior
“Super dry is one of those brands that you’d like to buy because of the quality. Not only that they’re durable but the designs are also great. This Superdry Store in The Dubai Mall is my fave branch in UAE. I think they have the most variety of stocks and the interior of the store is so great. I love shopping at Superdry most especially if they are on sale, and in their TDM branch, there is always something you can find to buy. 😁” – Jazper Jay

If you’re looking for trendy, hip-hop pieces to complete your wardrobe, B Hype is a good store to look into.
Their inventory consists of a good variety of sports and streetwear. You’ll find a lot of jogging pants, tracksuits, jackets, athleisure, hats, and hoodies.
If you’re looking for formal wear or something that’s not sporty or casual, this store is not for you. In terms of colors and styles, the store has a varied amount – we noticed a lot of bright, neon colors for most of their garments.
Now, what’s great about this specialized store is that they also house different brands, mostly sport-related brands such as Fila. So if you’re looking for another store that carries your favorite Fila apparel, B Hype is another option for you.
Moreover, B Hype has an online store for clients who cannot visit their location. The website is fairly well-designed and easy to use.
What’s nice about their online store is that they offer free shipping for all of their orders!
If you have extra money to splurge on some high-end, good-looking streetwear or sport apparently, we recommend going to B Hype to get… well, the hype!

H&M is a very popular fast-fashion brand that has established multiple branches all around the world. It is mostly known for its very trendy clothes catered to women.
However, this store also sells clothing to men and children. They also have accessories and home decor items available if you’re interested in that.
Most of the items on their rack cater to popular clothing styles and colors on social media. However, they do sell some basic items, such as shirts and jeans as well.
So although these styles would probably look great for a couple of months or years, they can likewise go out of style real quick.
In terms of variety though, they offer a lot of garment types making them a one-stop-shop for almost anyone. We’re talking about tops, blouses, sweaters, blazers, dresses, denim pants, slacks, shoes, and more.
What we like best about H&M though is that it is a huge, well-lit and aesthetically pleasing store… It’s very spacious with large walking areas amidst a large number of shelves and racks of clothes all around the area.
What we don’t like about H&M though, is that in terms of organization, they tend to clump clothes too close together. This makes the store look a bit cluttered, in our opinion.
Overall, H&M is a good store to visit if you’re browsing for the latest trendy pieces. Alternatively, with its very wide variety of clothes to choose from, you can certainly find a good item in this store!
Great Interior Design, Helpful Staff
