On formal occasions, older Fijian women often wear a longish dress and sulu underskirt but younger women wear a jiaba and sulu occasionally - a fitted top with matching sulu with elastic in the waistline. Of course modern girls wear clothes suitable for different occasions such as sport, dance, work - maybe conservative, and sometimes with lots of glamour, sometimes jeans. For housework or fishing a T-shirt and informal suluvakatoga might suffice. (colourful length of cloth wrapped around). The dress code for tertiary students at FIT requires conservative dress for students so there is an on-going debate about the rights of young women to dress how they please.
