I travelled to Addis Ababa and the central highland area. The local women always wear skirts but pants were acceptable for foreigners. Shorts would not be. I wore both pants and skirts designed for “travel” and felt comfortable. Long sleeve and short-sleeved shirts with good arm coverage are a good bet. Evenings in the highlands get cold so bring extra layers. The roads are very dusty — be sure to pack sturdy, closed shoes.
