The dress code is the rules about what clothes you are allowed to where at a place. This is usually used for situations like hotels or posh restaurants. In Adelaide, the casino has a dress code of no sneakers or jeans. Places like the Ritz Hotel have a similar dress code.

In a cultural situation, the dress code isn’t really about whether you are dressed well enough to go into the restaurant or hotel, but instead whether you are dressed appropriately for the situation or the culture. A common example of a cultural dress code would be the dress code for Muslim women and the Hijab. Do you know any other cultures that have dress codes like this?
