Following Iran’s dress code
Along with the unparalleled hospitality, Iranian fashion (yes, fashion!) is typically the biggest surprise to a foreign visitor. Foreign women, especially, struggle to feel fashionable and often find themselves the most conservatively dressed in the room.
Pintapin is here to help!
You can see Iranian men dress smart casual or business and aside from keeping your legs covered, there’s not too much you have to worry about.
The most important item of clothing is a scarf – a roosari (/ˈruːsæri/) – to cover your head in public spaces. A high bun or pony tail can help to keep the roosari in place.
A manteau (French for a cloak or gown) is recommended for your body, but loose-fitting tops and three-quarter length sleeves are acceptable. Trousers, jeans or long skirts are all also OK.
As is always the case, it’s better to be more cautious in holy cities such as Qom and Mashhad or shrines.
In rural populations or small towns, you may see traditional dress or folk costumes, depending on the area.
