This beautiful world is full of different people and traditions and the beauty lies in this diversity only. However, there is another word that takes place, strange. The world is also a strange place with all the more strange rules which sometimes can make us wonder why.
As different as the cultures are around the world, the rules how one should dress in many countries can make you wonder about their existence.
Here are some unusual dress codes around the world that you must know!
1. In Bhutan, female citizens must wear a kimono, known as a Kira, in public at all times.
The traditional attire for men and women were introduced around the 17th century by the unifier of Bhutan as a nation-state, ‘Ngawang Namgyal’ to exhibit their unique identity as Bhutan is place with deep rooted traditions.
2. In both Sudan and North Korea, women are not allowed to wear trousers.
In the year 2014, there was outrage as nine women faced 40 lashes for the crime of wearing western-style slacks.
3. In Spain, wearing sandals or flip-flops, or any open-toed-shoe is a punishable offence.
You’ll be presented with a fine if you are caught wearing flip-flops. Having an extra pair of shes might save you from the same. It is only for safety purposes as the law here states that you must be in control of your vehicle at all times.
4. You are not allowed to wear high heels in Greece at historical sites such as the Acropolis or Delphi.
