Fijians dress casually in cool, light fabrics because of Fiji's tropical climate. An example of traditional Fijian clothing is the sulu. Both men and women wear this garment, and it is comparable to a sarong. The sulu is highly versatile and wearable in many styles.
Recommended dress for tourists visiting Fiji is modest clothing, especially when visiting a village. Neither women nor men should wear shorts or swimsuits outside of the resort, and women shouldn't leave their shoulders and arms bare, as doing so is offensive to local residents. Another sign of respect is to remove your hat when visiting a village, as wearing it is an insult to the chief.
