Full Answer

Casual wear in Brazil caters towards showing skin, particularly for women. For this reason, many Brazilian women wear jeans that fit snugly and that often have a design along the side, in addition to sequins. Men generally prefer comfortable and stylish dress shoes, as well as slacks and shirts. Due to Brazil's warm temperatures, many shirts and slacks feature a lightweight material for breathability, such as cotton. In a business setting, men tend to wear dark, conservative colors, particularly when in a higher-level position. Women generally wear suits or fashionable dresses in the workplace, along with manicured hands.
