Dress Code in Iran

 Here is quick look at dress code for both men and women:

In private places there is no dress code but this can also depend on the occasion and company present.

In public spaces:

For men: No shorts, shirts must have sleeves and t-shirts are acceptable. A conservative appearance is recommended with limited decorations.

For women : According to Islamic law ‘Hijab’ must be observed. This means the entire body except face, hands, and feet in public places must be covered. This rule must be applied in public places, but in fact it is not strictly observed in Iran.  A long loose-fitting shirt or ‘maanto’ is required. A scarf or ‘roosari’  is most commonly worn to cover hair but caps and winter hats are also acceptable if the hair and neck are mostly covered. There is no limitation on makeup, and it is common among Iranian ladies but heavy makeup is somehow inappropriate as it attracts men’s attention. There is no problem with painted nails, and it is common among women whether on fingers or toes. Arms must be covered at least to just below elbow.Legs must be covered down to ankle or just above. This is highly recommended as any higher will attract men’s attention. Feet can be uncovered. Clothes must be loose, not form-fitting and no transparent fabrics. You will notice however, that Iranian women in the city dress creatively while still somewhat observing hijab. Visiting mosques and shrines need full covering, meaning ‘chaador’. It is usually available in mosques and shrines.
