“How do I dress for business in Barbados?”

Bajans like to dress up. Business dress is usually more formal than in the USA, but not as formal as the U.K. Male executives will wear full suits at top level meetings and conferences, but the jacket can be ditched for most other occasions. Ladies dress in business wear, but stockings are hardly ever worn.

We can seem laid-back but T-shirts, casual sandals, shorts and jeans are never expected, especially if you are taking a lead position in the event.

As with any other situation, err on the side of over-dressing if in doubt, but you can bring summer clothing throughout the year; woolen and lined articles will almost certainly be too hot.
