How to dress modestly during the month of Ramadan
Ramadan has just begun and non-Muslims should, therefore dress modestly during the holy month of Ramadan if living or be visiting in a Muslim country. For me living in Dubai, there are some written rules to obey regarding the dress code. What does it actually means to dress modestly in modern society during the month of Ramadan? Do women have to be covered from head to toe? As an expat living in Dubai, the answer is no. You will need to wear clothes that are neither provocative nor revealing in public. No spaghetti straps, mini skirt or very short shorts ought to be worn. Dubai is more liberal compared to other emirates or Middle Eastern countries but still, the hemlines of your skirt or pants should be to your knees or full length. The same applies to low V-necks showing cleavage. If you favorite blouse comes with a low cut find your favorite scarf and ties a beautiful knot cover up. It seems challenging with temperatures over 35 degrees at the moment but for me, I like to combine outfit in a new way. Be creative and you might find yourself pairing outfits together you haven’t thought of before. My outfit is an example of what you could wear to stay comfortable, light, cool and modest. I especially love silk fabrics since it let your skin breathe easily. I think it is a perfect material for a hot humid climate. To add a little glamor my closed shoes will do the work.
FYI (Is a greeting to other Muslims during this period. Kareem means generous)
Until next time
