Bhutanese women wearing kira dresses and toego jackets

A toego (Dzongkha: སྟོད་གོ་; Wylie: stod-go; also spelled tögo) is a long-sleeved, short jacket-like garment worn over a kira by women in Bhutan.[1][2][3][4] The toego is thus part of the national dress of Bhutan, along with the kira dress and wonju undershirt.

Both men and women in Bhutan wear the similarly named tego blouse under the gho and kira.[5]
