Muslim countries have a very different tradition from the rest of the world and hence the way they dress is also quite different from the other parts of the world. They are mostly modest dressers and hence if you are planning on taking a trip to any of the modern Muslim countries do bear in mind that there are a few things you would have to tweak in your wardrobe when you visit these countries.
Below Knee Outfits
One thing that Dubai is very particular about is that every dress that women wear have to be below the knee. You are not allowed to show off your calves and hence remember to pack a lot of long tunics, anarkali dresses and below knee length dresses. You can only wear shorts and dresses in your hotel room or apartment. Wearing it outside can get you into trouble.
Say Goodbye To Shoulderless
It is mandatory for women to cover up their shoulder so make sure you don’t pack them up. If you wish to still carry it with you then pair it with a shawl, scarf or cardigan. Before you leave your room, ensure that you have completely covered your shoulders.
Don’t Let Your Cleavage Take A Peek A Boo
It is very important that you don’t let your cleavage take a peek a boo as it is offensive. It’s believe that a woman should be covered from her shoulder to knee and hence you need to make sure to leave behind your plunging v neck blouses and tops.
The Legging Factor
Leggings can be worn but should only be paired with a long tunic or under a short skirt. Pairing your leggings and short tops and crop tops are a big no-no, so make sure you pack some comfortable kurtis.
If you plan to enter to visit any government offices make sure you cover your head with a scarf or shawl. It is always smart to carry a scarf with you at all times. Helps beat the heat, helps cover your wardrobe malfunctions and add a chic component to your otherwise modest outfit.
Pack some comfortable and breezy outfits as these are best to beat the heat. If you are ever unsure on what to wear and what not to, try to stick to the modest style of dressing for it can never go wrong.
