DUBAI — The Dubai municipality is offering abayas to women who do not follow the Emirate’s dress code during their visit to the centers, Khaleej Times reported on Tuesday.
The move comes after “many complaints about scantily-clad female customers,” it reported. “According to the ‘Dubai Code of Conduct’ published on the council’s website, an official business or business casual dress code shall be adopted by all visitors of Dubai’s government buildings as well as business buildings and office towers.

Access to Dubai’s official and business buildings may be denied if dress code is considered inappropriate,” Khaleej Times stated.

The code on decency states: “In all other public places such as streets, shopping malls and restaurants, shorts and skirts shall be of appropriate length.
