IRAN DRESS CODE It doesn’t mean you need to have a tight scarf around your head, in contrast it is rather acceptable for women to allow whips of their hair to frame their face. Body should be covered with loose clothing such as baggy shirts, coats and/or manteau. You can also wear your jeans here in Iran. Iran dress code is just about some tips & simple rules. Men: the dress code for men is simple as can be. You could sum it up in just a few words: everyday street wear. We found long-sleeved, cotton or linen shirts to be the perfect attire for men. Iranian men dress sharp and take good care of their appearances, you’ll fit right in. Women: These rules are not observed very strict. You must not worry about maintaining your hijab, since in times you have forgotten about it, the maximum penalty will be a request (usually in a kind way) to make it correct. Obeying Islamic rules including Hijab or Islamic dress code is necessary in Iran. However these rules are not observed very strict, especially for tourists and foreigners. There are some minimum requirements for foreign women dress-code in public places.
