Solution

Two examples of the ways in which European dress codes were different from Indian dress codes:

(i) In Europe, dress codes were enacted on a socio-economic bias, while in India, these norms were along the lines of caste.

(ii) While the lower classes in Europe were barred from wearing specific materials, the lower castes in India were barred from wearing particular clothes; for example, the Shanar women, who were disallowed from covering their upper bodies like the higher caste women.
