So you’ve finally conquered Bali and decided to take on its humble cousin – Jakarta. Selecting your outfit for a day out shopping in Jakarta may be tricky, but is attainable if you observe two major factors – the local culture and dynamic climate.

Due to Jakarta’s rich Muslim heritage, we advise going for modest clothing – that means straying away from the usual tropical wear like shorts and sleeveless tops. A light and breathable fabric such as cotton is apt for hot and humid Jakarta, and for sitting in a car for an uncertain amount of time.

Pair a loose crop top with high-waist cotton pants and accessorise with a pair of stylish sunglasses to beat the heat. Comfortable footwear is a must if you’ve planned lots of sightseeing and shopping for the trip, so be sure to carry a pair of comfy yet chic sandals. Lastly, do not forget to pack your sunscreen and a moisturising lip balm to protect yourself from the harmful rays (and a scarf or wrap and portable phone charger for those lengthy car journeys). Happy shopping!
