Islamic dress codes can differ by region, but the general rules for wearing formal clothes remain the same: dress in formal clothing is to be modest and modestly.
The most common dress codes are those of North Africa and the Middle East.
In North Africa, the dress code is generally accepted as a matter of Islamic dress, and men must wear a headscarf and a traditional veil.
Women must wear the hijab, which covers the hair and the face.
Men must wear what is known as a hijab-a veil with a hood.
Hijabs are not compulsory in North Africa but they are compulsory in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and Yemen.
A similar dress code applies to women in Iran.
Men and women must wear full-length robes, or a long skirt that covers the shoulders, and women are allowed to wear headscarves.
In the Middle Eastern region, the rules are more rigid.
Men wear a turban and a turkin, and no headscarve.
Women must wear an abaya and a hijab, or full-body covering that covers all parts of the body except the head and neck.
In some cases, the veil is optional.
In the West, women are required to wear a full-face covering.
In many countries, the hijab is optional in formal dress.
Some countries, like Saudi Arabia and Egypt, allow women to wear the headscarfs in public, while others, like Bahrain and Pakistan, require a full veil to cover the entire face.
The Islamic dresscode for women in North America is the same.
Women are required in the U.S. to wear full face coverings while traveling abroad.
