The Woman assumes Ihram in any Clothing the she wishes
Question:

Is it permissible for a woman to assume Ihram in any clothing that she wishes?
Answer:

Yes, she may assume Ihram in whatever she wishes. She does not have any specified clothing for Ihram as some of the common people think. However, it is better that her Ihram be in clothing that is not beautiful and that does not attract gazes, because she will be mixing with the people. Therefore, her clothing should be clothing that does not attract the gazes and that is not beautiful. Rather, the clothing should be plain clothing that does not contain any temptation.

In reference to the man, it is better for him to assume Ihram in two white garments a lower waist garment and an upper garment. If he assumes Ihram in something other than two white garments, there is no harm in that. Indeed it has been confirmed from the Messenger sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam that he performed Tawaf while wearing a green Yemeni mantle. It is also confirmed from him the he sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam wore a black turban. Thus, the conclusion is that there is no harm in the person assuming Ihram in a garment that is not white.
