Wuhan - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Basically the same as most places: shirt and tie for men, jacket if there's a big meeting or official event. It's just so hot and humid in the summer that I have given up and wear more comfortable business casual attire unless there is an event. - Jul 2021

There is a wide variety, ranging from business to business casual in the workplace. Open-toed shoes for women are considered unprofessional. In the summer, it is very hot and more women wear dresses. In the winter, it feels very cold, and most people wear layers-- or padded pajamas out on the street-- but not at work. - Jan 2020

Casual. It is rare to come across Chinese who wear suits to work. - Feb 2008
