Types of clothing to bring to Ethopia?

Jump to last reply

What types of clothing should I bring to Ethiopia? I am a teenage girl and there is sparse information for this age group.

We will be in Addis Ababa, Harar, and Aksum (or Axum, still not sure which is correct), and plan on going into a couple of churches (but not a whole bunch).

Specific questions:
-Would it be good or just weird to wear one of those head scarfs into the churches?
-How long should pants/skirts be?
-Any types of shoes that are especially impractical (aside from high heels, definitely not bringing any of those)?
-What must be covered up?
-Temperature ranges for the above areas? Should I bring more than a rain coat?
-General attitudes toward clothing, style, formality, etc.

An answer to even one of those would be extremely helpful. Thank you! :)
