Every place has an unsaid code of decorum which the residents as well as visitors have to abide by. As the adage says, "He who wishes to
live at Rome must not quarrel with the pope", accordingly, one should be watchful as to not go against the civilian customs and traditions
of the place one is visiting. Talking about Chennai, the 'Gateway to South India' believes in simple living and reflecting the same
through appearance, body language and lifestyle. Though the city is one of the fast moving cities of India, with increasing developmental
pace, it has not loosened its grip on the conventional traditions and customs.
The people in Chennai are very simple and believe in leading a simple life. They are very traditional and particular about their customs and value system. The conventional style of selection and adoring different traditional attires confirms this fact. Women are respected and given high regard in South Indian families. As a result, most of the women wear saris, with exquisite designs and flowing fabrics, further enhancing their traditional Indian beauty. Men usually wear a dress called veshti and shirt. However, due to the modernization of Chennai, people are commonly seen wearing western attire including shirts, jeans, and t-shirts-although, western wear is not very popular except in the urbanized areas.
Lying at the southeast coast of the country at the Bay of Bengal, experiencing a tropical climate, Chennai really wants you to think twice before picking up any dress. As the climate in Chennai is terribly hot, cotton would be the most preferred fabric to wear in the city. The lighter shaded your clothes are, the better it is. If you are visiting Chennai in winter, which is the best season to come to Chennai, do not burden yourself with heavy woollen clothes as the temperature seldom falls below 20 degree Celsius.
