The partners of England’s World Cup squad have been told to dress modestly when out and about in Qatar.

At least three WAGs have turned to personal stylists to ensure they don’t cause offence in the strict Islamic nation, with low-cut tops and short skirts strictly banned.

Instead, the wives and girlfriends will enjoy evenings out in linen trouser suits and long dresses, with their arms covered to show respect to local tradition in Doha.

Personal stylish Connie Jones, 31, from Manchester, helped three WAGs design their wardrobes for the tournament – not only for matches, but for evening get togethers and restaurant visits.

Luke Shaw’s partner Anouska Santos, John Stones’s partner Liv Naylor and Marcus Rashford’s fiancée Lucia Loi all sought help ahead of arriving for England’s first World Cup match against Iran on Monday, MailOnline has been told.

All three will bring suitcases of designer clothing, make-up and jewellery curated by Ms Jones, who runs the Connie Personal Shopping Company from her studio in Manchester.   

Low-cut tops, skimpy tight shorts and revealing skirts have been vetoed.

However, wearing England shirts with the names of their partners – a custom at World Cup matches – has been OKed by those in Doha.

A source told MailOnline: ‘A lot of planning has gone in preparation for the women.

‘Connie leaves nothing to chance and has examined their itinerary and desired outfits which will fit into situations such as visit to restaurants or even when they are in the gym.

‘She is highly trusted and thought of by the women and has contacts to source the latest fashions and clothing so that the women look the best.

‘This World Cup is very different from the last one in Russia four years ago we are the players wives and girlfriends could show off their bodies and figures in items such as denim shorts and skimpy tops.

‘The women know that they are going to be photographed wherever they go and they understand that it helps them on their social media profiles so they have to look the best.

‘The last thing they want is to offend anybody in Qatar. They have a lot of self-respect and want to show the same respect to the people there but at the same time enjoy themselves.

‘What we are going to see at this World Cup is a new style of WAG. They are going to look amazing everywhere they go.’

Connie has more than 50,000 followers on Instagram and they include Jordan Pickford’s wife Megan, Jack Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood, Kieran Trippier’s wife Charlotte, Kalvin Phillips’ girlfriend Ashleigh Behan and Declan Rice’’ partner Lauren Fryer.

The women will be staying in the floating hotel, the brand-new £1billion liner MSC World Europa. MailOnline understands each cabin will cost up to £40,000 for the duration.

The source added: ‘The WAGs are ready and prepared to support their men and hoping they come home with the World Cup.

‘They know being photographed helps their social media profiles too. Between them they have hundreds of thousands of followers. Nothing has been left to chance for this trip.

‘But they don’t expect to be able to meet the players due to Covid regulations around the England team. But they will be cheering them on as loudly as anyone.’
