This paper presents research-based evidence to examine the association between life style and women’s dress codes, that is, hijab, from a sociological perspective. The examination includes 400 females aged 15-64 years old. This study has been conducted in Tabriz City in 2013. On the basis of the results of this study, the underlying conclusion indicates that the tendency towards the type of dress codes among the females is significantly associated with their attitudes towards life style: the more modern the latter, the more liberal the former. This suggests that, on the one hand, those who have more traditional attitudes towards life style are more likely to accept a fully-covered type of hijab for women. On the other hand, a moderate type of hijab is more likely to be accepted by those holding liberal attitudes towards life style.
