  Decoding (dress) codes  
  BY THE WEEK BUREAU  
 
The phrase ‘dress codes’ may have originated in the West, but nowadays their usage is rapidly increasing in Nepal, too. Our dress codes are slightly different from the Western ones, because we can conveniently overlook such established codes like ‘white tie’ or ‘black tie’ which are not really worn in Nepal. Also, we need to incorporate our own attires like saris and salwar-kurthas which are alien to western formal wear.

When you receive an invitation card that says “dress code: casual chic” in bold blue letters, you may be flummoxed as to what combination of Nepali and western wear this style of dressing entails. You know casual and you know chic, but the combination of these two is completely alien. The Week Bureau guides you through this and other bewildering guidelines on dressing, with inputs from award-winning designer and stylist Tenzin Tseten Bhutia.
