What to wear for Ramadan1 Comments 17 July 2012
What you wear during Ramadan will be scrutinised more closely this year in light of a recent reports that the Federal National Council is debating whether to enforce a stricter dress code across the UAE. The plan, although in the early stages, could see a law created to enforce appropriate dress in public spaces. With this in mind, remember to cover shoulders, knees and (obviously) midriff during Ramadan – and that applies to both men and women. It’s fine to wear swimwear at the beach, but be sure to cover up as soon as you leave the sand. Also, avoid wearing sheer, see-through fabrics during the Holy Month – coloured clothing is fine, providing it is not revealing.
Invest in a multi-functional lightweight scarf to add a burst of colour to your ensemble. Tie it to your bag when you’re not using it and simply wrap it around your shoulders when you leave the house or office. It will also come in handy at the beach and for travel.
