Pack light and buy clothes there! Even though people told me before I left for India that the standards of dress are much more modest, I still ended up bringing a few things I never wore because I found out they were inappropriate. Though you will see tourists and young hip Indians in tank-tops and short skirts, as Westerners, what we wear stands out, and it's safer to stay on the conservative end of things. Your best bet is to pack lightly, and buy some Indian-style dress once you are there. It’s a fun experience to pick out bright, decorative cloth and have it tailored to fit you perfectly, as most Indians do. Women can enjoy wearing Indian kurtas, and men can rock neon, sparkly, fuzzy sweaters (I’m not even joking).
