What Should I Wear? Iceland Even though it's rather cold in Iceland, Icelanders generally dress fairly well. The younger crowd -- it's very trendy but you can get away with a pair of nicely fitted dark jeans, a black turtleneck, a dark coat, maybe one skirt for dressier occations and dark bowling style sneakers or dark boots.
You'll definitelly need good hiking boots when you're outside of the towns, the terrain is rather rough. Hulda, Reykjavik, Iceland India Remember this hint. Skirts are so much easier than pants if you have to use squatting Indian toilets!
Showing your legs, upper arms, or any cleavage is frowned upon and you may have unwanted attentions from the local men. Your clothing should also be loose. Not only is it important to be modest there, but loose clothing is more comfortable in the tropical heat.
Wear sandals or slip-on shoes when you visit a local's house because most Bangladeshis take off their shoes when entering a home. When I went out in public I often wore sunglasses.

Wearing tank tops and shorts invited countless more lewd comments and attempts to look down the girls' shirts.This is a fallacy that occurs quite frequently among men in the so-called manosphere- the fallacy of the “foreign woman.” I agree that non-Western women’s attitudes may be somewhat more palatable, due to them being the product of a less toxic culture, but strip away the layers of cultural/social conditioning and all women are fundamentally alike.
