For the fashionista, having any sort of clothing option prohibited is incomprehensible. So for the fashionista living in Indonesia, it’s probably time to move. The Indonesia ban in Aceh province forbids women to wear tight pants.

According to, the Indonesia ban on tight pants is the latest in a string of dress code clampdowns in Muslim countries. The new laws in Indonesia will require that women wear Muslim dress or risk having their inappropriate pants destroyed. Pants themselves, however, are allowed as long as the woman wears a long skirt over it to cover her ankles and her top isn’t tucked into them. In terms of perfect Muslim dress, women are not allowed to reveal their body shape at all.
