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

Business casual for work. In public places, anything goes. - Sep 3, 2017
Pretty casual all around, women should wear dresses to the knee though, not shorter. - Sep 9, 2014
Business casual, the POL/ECON folks wear suits, but no one else does. It's hot and humid. Leave your pantyhose at home. - Jun 19, 2014
This is a very tolerant Muslim society. I've seen modest dress to skanky outfits on the same block. - Aug 12, 2013
Casual to shirt-and-tie at work. In public most anything goes except shorts. - Sep 16, 2010
