China: Business Dress

2015-06-12

Business Dress

Conservative suits with subtle colours are the norm. Bright colours should be avoided in business meetings. Men should wear suits and ties to formal events; tuxedoes are not a part of Chinese business culture. Women should avoid strapless tops or mini skirts. The Chinese frown on women who display too much. Jeans and trainers are not acceptable for business meetings as well, but it’s ok to wear those when you visit a factory. For females, proper makeup for meetings should not be too strong or too chic. No dramatic accessories or open-toe footwear.
