What is the typical dress code at work and in public places? Is formal dress ever required?

Business for work, smart casual for the rest. People in Bosnia and Herzegovina like to dress up. - Feb 6, 2017
Work is very formal. The US embassy is not a casual place. The public is also pretty dressy as a whole. I can't go to the store in my workout clothes without a lot of dirty looks. - May 26, 2016
