Bahrain is not quite as liberal as Dubai but at the same time it is still relaxed, so you just need to be sensible.

Comfort wise, light clothes, cotton and linens.

Decency wise just use your commone sense, in public nothing too revealing or offensive. A lighthearted way to address it is to imagine what your average grandmother would think of something on a decency scale, if she would approve you should be good to go.

Hey, i'd go for classic linens!

Something classy with some great accessories!

Remember, designer sunglasses and some great bags!

Karen millen have some great Kaftans with a little sequin detail for a hint of interest!

Classy, elegant and stylish.
The less you show, the more they want to unwrap you!.... my grandma always said!

But hey, what do I know..... sorry! Probably not useful atall!

Have a great time and GOOD LUCK!!

Hiya, Really, with common sense anything goes here. The main thing to remember is that all internal spaces are chilled to about 21C - much colder than at home in the summer - so bring layers. I didn't think about it till I got here - little cardi's and/or summer jackets are a must! Especially in restaurants - brrr! You will probably find that at least at first you won't be out in the heat much at all.
