What can be taken for male «dress», it is actually a shirt called dishdashas. It’s light, always without a belt for better ventilation, and long sleeves that protect against sunburn.

White dishdashas — is the official parade-output version of the garments in the summer. The white color reflects the sun, and its purity shows that a person dressed for an important occasion, and not to work. Light gray shirt, by contrast, the variant type casual. Warm dishdashas sewn from fabric with the addition of wool and they are generally dark colors:

Strict rules to wear the niqab in Kuwait not. The woman herself decides how her dress:

Still, with the tastes there is some problem that really must admit:


But Kuwaiti wedding decorations are so rich, that will be envied by the most advanced Gypsy Baron! About «kokoshniki» 10 000 dollars, I wrote in the previous post about the market:


I could not resist trying on kufiyu. In general, the skill to tie a headscarf is very useful in case if you stayed in the heat without caps:


And example of a traditional robe — a walk, so walk! She calls bisht is incidentally an element of beauty and a sign of wealth. Not huhry muhry!
