Trousers that are worn tight and hang low is a Western fashion trait that many Egyptian girls have adopted on college campuses. As if life wasn’t already complicated enough for the nation’s young men, the sexiness of the girls’ apparel can prove frustrating. One engineering student from Alexandria decided to take matters into his own hands and in a matter of clicks a Facebook group asking Egyptian girls to loosen up when it comes to clothing was born. Today, girls and boys within and beyond Egypt use the forum to voice their opinion, and give and take advice on how to dress to impress without attracting the wrong kind of attention.
