^ Then they'll put it back on. If it is obvious it was an accident no one would care. It happens quite often actually.

the scarves of many women in the pics are really far down the neck. Is that allowed? Is there a limit and does someone bother?

^Well there is much diversity in the way women dress in Iran. Officially all woman are suppose to "dress in hijab" in public but this isn't specifically defined really and in the past two decades woman have been pushing the limits farther and farther. To answer your question though, it may not be allowed officially but people do it anyways and what is considered appropriate attire usually depends on where you are. For example in Tehran it is commom to see people dressing this way and nobody cares for the most part, but for example in say Qom (the most religious city) people would follow a more stricter dresscode and people who push the limits may be told to fix their attire.

If it was in governmnet's hands, they will want all women to wear Chador, a black long material that you wrap around yourself since they are sick people but most women except the religous ones of course try to oppose the dress code as much as they can.

Every years as soon as the weather warms up in Tehran governmnet guards or fashion police will go to Tehran's Busy streets and squares and warn women to fic theri veil and in some cases if their veil is not covered enough they arrest them and they have to pay a fine to be freed.

Police fashions are here on and off and not always around therefore you don't need to worry but after a while living in Tehran you'll get a hold of what hours they are around or what squares or streets they might be at, then you can manage to not walk in front of them or cross the other side of the square if your veil is not very well covered.

It sucks but that's the reality in Iran now with this regime and below are some pix of fashion police that are telling women to fix their veils taken from Iranian news agencies.

Please do not post any politics related posts here as I am posting these pix only for your information. Thank you










Even while driding they warn some women







Even guys with weird hair styles or with punk hair cut will be fined or arrested or if you give too much style to your hair




You can not and should not ever insult the governmnet guards in any way since they throw you in jail for good and bring false excuses that you have harassed them and unfortunately government backs them so much.

Shame on all of them with these pathetic jobs


Again, this is not the everyday life in Tehran they do this once in a while to show people their power and remind them that they should follow the forced & mandatory dress code so don't get panaroid since Tehran can be a fun city to visit and have a good time at despite all these

What I love is that after the dress code crack down period finishes all women go back to their fashionable outfit and wear low scarves again. It never works with most persian women. They are very brave and I admire them so much

I think Iran has great potential. I hope people will be really free someday there because there are already so many open-minded and stylish persians there now
