"What Clothes to Pack for Jordan?" by Laurie Jones
When packing for Jordan I would say the number one thing giving me anxiety was what to wear. I knew that I needed to be conservative, but I also knew that it was going to be hot and in my head those were two contradictory thoughts. I also was coming from Ireland, a very different climate so I didn't have a lot of room.
I talked to my friend who had lived in Amman for 4 months and she gave me great advice. She said that with me being blonde and having freckles, I was going to stand out and I would just have to recognize this. She said fashion-wise that the one main thing to note is that Jordanian women are very fashionable.
I had no idea what that meant so I just packed my bag and honestly just hoped for the best.
I have attached several pictures of me and my friends and what they have worn recently in Amman to give you some inspiration for cites all over Jordan.
No matter how many times I say it, just note that the Jordanian people are very fashionable. To quote a fellow classmate, think California vibes for teens and then chic elegance for adult women. So, being in your twenties and somewhere in between, just give it your best shot. No matter what you wear, you will be fine. You’re a tourist and everyone knows it, so don’t worry about it too much. Think cute and conservative for fall or spring and you will be good. Good luck and happy packing!
