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

People tend to dress business casual at this post both in public and at work. Traditional African clothing is also acceptable. Formal dress is expected at official functions. - Aug 20, 2017
Guineans like to dress very professionally for work. Suit and tie is a must for men when meeting with someone high in the government. Outside of work, dress is fairly casual. Women don't tend to wear shorts; mostly dresses and skirts. - Sep 7, 2014
