Many people who plan to visit Turkey wonder about the type of clothing they are supposed to wear. Turkey is a secure country where every people is free to wear any clothing he or she wants. Nevertheless, you need to be well prepared not to offend anyone by the clothes you wear. You will find that there are different mindsets and cultures. Some neighborhoods and regions are liberal, while others are more conservative. Because of this culture, there are different fashions and styles when it comes to clothing that they wear. Here is what I should wear in Turkey.
During summer season
Turkey is a massive country that has a diverse climate. If you’re traveling during the summer season, in June and September, expect to find the weather being hot anywhere for around 30 to 40 degrees Celsius. T-shirts, shorts, tank tops, dresses, hats, and skirts are all suitable during hot weather. Breathable clothing or cool cotton and hat can make your day out exploring more comfortable.
During winter season
There is a time when the weather is quite cold in Turkey which is mostly between December and March. This period is very cold with the temperatures going to around 3 to 11 degrees Celsius or even going down to below the freezing point. You will also find that this is not common to places like Istanbul, Cappadocia, and Ankara. During this season you are supposed to come with your heavy winter jacket to be prepared for cold wind and air.
If you have a holiday at the resort or the seaside town like Bodrum, Fethiye, Izmir or Antalya, you will not be concerned about dressing modestly because these places are liberal particularly during the peak season in the summer season. Short dresses, shorts, skirts, bikinis, tank tops, swimsuits, flip-flops, and sandals, are the necessary clothing. Beachwear is most common to those people who are on the beach. When you are coming from the beach with your swimwear, you are supposed to cover yourself before you enter any restaurant or bar. Take care of the skin by wearing protective sunscreen which will help you not be burnt by the sun.
When going to the mosques
The beautiful mosques in Turkey are open to every visitor, both Muslim and non-Muslim. Every visitor is supposed to remove his/her shoes before stepping to the carpet of the mosque. This is because Muslim worshipers normally kneel and touch the foreheads to a carpet, therefore it is important to keep it clean. Because a mosque is a place of worship, you’re supposed to wear modest clothes with conservative clothing that doesn’t expose your skin.
