It’s all about the thobe
Attending the Cup or curious about the dress code? Look no further, here’s what Dr. Laila Albassam recommends.
Gentlemen, bishts, daglahs and sayahs are your go-to. A bisht can either be paired with a smart suit underneath or a traditional thobe. You’re advised to go all out with your thobe — pay attention to color, material, patterns and embroidery, because they allow you to be formal, but still stand out.
You’ve also got the option to opt for a daglah or sayah — both are similar, and can be categorized as a floor length coat, and they stand out thanks to their fitted cut and beautiful embroidery. The difference? A sayah is made from patterned fabric.
Ladies — it’s all about the thobe; however, pay attention to embroidery, color, sleeves, headdresses and layers, these are what you can use to stand out.
