Woman in Hijab
Iranian dressing trend is going through many changes.

According to the Iranian law, a woman needs to cover her hair and body in public, otherwise she can be fined or imprisoned for two months. Wearing a hijab and a chador is customary for Iranian women.

However, Iranians born after the Islamic uprising are revolting against the dull, uniform-style clothing. During the reformist period, restrictions were relaxed to allow women to wear bright colors.

The younger generation is regarding it as expensive, hot and difficult to wear. So designers have come up with new models to make them more stylish and practical and created a chador with sleeves.

A fashion show 'Arab styles' was organized in Tehran, where women in high-heel shoes and with ample make-up paraded down the ramp. But all the models were covered with the chador from head to toe.

This was the first ever fashion show held in post-revolutionary Iran.

In North Tehran many shops sell strapless dresses and low-cut, beaded tops for women to wear at parties.

Recently many women have started dressing like Western fashion models wearing skimpy tight overcoats, high heels and token headscarves.
