Have Clothes, Will Travel
When packing for a trip to Egypt as a woman it’s important to remember that Egypt is a predominantly Muslim country. By dressing modestly I mean, your shoulders, cleavage, and knees should be covered, and you should avoid tight, clingy clothing.
So, in other words, the best dresses for Egypt are loose-fitting maxi and midi dresses that have sleeves or can be layered.
This dress turned into my “dinner” dress while on our Nile River Cruise in Egypt because it is comfortable for the heat, but still “dressy” enough for dining on the boat.
This maxi dress turned out to be the most comfortable one I packed for my trip through Egypt and Jordan! It covered me appropriately, and it breathed really well.
This is the dress I wore when visiting Edfu and Kom Ombo. While I REALLY love the way the first dress looks and feels, this dress was a bit more practical for exploring, as it wasn’t dragging on the ground.
The dress I wore to Abu Simbel was a linen blend smock dress that was incredibly comfortable for the occasion. It was great for a day of sweating and long bus rides!
This maxi dress turned out to be the most comfortable one I packed for my trip through Egypt and Jordan! It covered me appropriately, and it breathed really well. It’s what I wore when visiting Luxor.
This dress I’m wearing here in Aswan is 100% silk and was fabulous for this adventure in Egypt. I always thought of silk as being a “fancy” fabric.
