General Brazilian fashion is never too casual and Brazilians like to dress up for nearly every occasion. Brazilian fashion is also very youthful looking even for all age groups. People pay attention to other's clothing quality and style.
Men normally wear casual slacks and shirts, but their main concern is normally footwear. Brazilian men take pride in the shoes they wear. Havaianas are a extremely popular type of flip flops for men. Comfortable, yet stylish, shoes are what most men prefer to wear.
Jeans are a very essential item in a Brazilian woman's closet. Most jeans are tighter fitting and taper out at the bottom. Sequins or some kind of design often goes down the side of the jeans to add decoration. Low-rise jeans are very popular. Brazilan women are proud of their bodies, no matter their shape or size, and are comfortable with showing some skin. Halter tops are popular and worn by many women. Dresses and skirts generally have a hem-line that is above the knee for both younger and older women. There are many beaches in Brazil and the typical beachwear for women is two-piece bathing suits. Brazilian women do not want to hide their body shape and do not like baggy or too loose of clothing.
Brazil Fashion in the Workplace
When Brazilians are in their workplace, they do not dress casual, but very classy and fancy. Men are expected to wear dark colored suits. Women wear feminine suits or elegant dresses and their nails are expected to be manicured at all times. The full package or image is extremely important to Brazilians.
