Many British people don't think about clothes very much.
In Britain, as well as in the USA, men in offices usually wear
suits and ties and women wear dresses or skirts (not trousers).
Doctors, lawyers and business people wear quite formal clothes.
And in some hotels and restaurants men have to wear ties
and women wear smart dresses. Jeans and open shirts are
sometimes not allowed. It is difficult to say exactly what
people wear in Britain and the States because everyone is
different. It you are not sure what to wear watch what other
people do and then do the same. Or ask the advice of a friend
or your host. You'll fell relaxed if you don't look too different
from everyone else.
British people just like to be comfortable. When they go
out to enjoy themselves, they can wear almost everything.
At theaters, cinemas and concerts you can put on what you
oke — from elegant suits and dresses to jeans and sweaters.
In many ways, Americans are more relaxed than British people,
but they are more careful with their clothes. At home or on
holiday most Americans wear informal or sporty clothes. But
when they go out in the evening, they like to look elegant.
In good hotels and restaurants men have to wear jackets and
ties and women wear pretty clothes and smart hairstyles. But
these days most people in Britain and the USA do not wear
very formal clothes. But sometimes it is important to wear
the right thing.
