Clothing: The first and most important fact about this country is the way the people wear clothes. At the first glance it may be hard for woman travelers to come to Iran due to the strict rule about Hijab. Don’t let this deter you form this great destination. There are opportunities travelers are allowed to discard their hijab.
Iranians are very fashion conscious. You can easily see many young ladies wearing fitting manteau (raincoat type of item) with tight pants underneath. You can see them wearing sandals, makeup, nail polish, tiny scarves, and sunglasses. But they are not allowed to wear shorter than ankle length pants. Tourists get away with wearing long and loose shirts with pants and any types of scarf. Men can wear t-shirts and pants anywhere. Shorts are not appropriate for men except on the beach or at the gym.
