Mini skirts en vogue in Equatorial Guinea
In all the country’s major towns of Malabo, Bata and Mongomo women are relatively at ease going about their business in short knee length dresses.
Even schools here seem to have a liberal view of women dressing if the outfit of pupils and students, some as young as 12 years, is anything to go by.
Some of the ladies that Nairobi News spoke to attributed this trend to the relatively humid conditions experienced in this part of the world. The normal daily temperatures in Equatorial Guinea range from between 28-33 degrees.
Others however just attribute the dress code to fashion.
“You cannot expect me to fit in those long dresses and skirts in this day and age. I don’t even feel comfortable in them,” a lady manning a restaurant in downtown Malabo quipped.
So are the Guineans such an “advanced” lot or its Kenyans that have missed out something on this subject?
