Generally, women have to wear clothing that conceals their body parts. In Iran you can see most women wearing “mantou” that might be in different colors and even tight or short. Your other choice can be “tunics” and pants. If you would prefer to wear a skirt, it should be at least mid-calf or longer, with nontransparent, darkish hosiery underneath. Ankle length skirts are unusual but acceptable. There is no problem with wearing skinny jeans and high boots but avoid Carpi pants, they are too short and not acceptable. Open toed sandals with nail polish are fine.
