Paraguay natives often wear clothing with light colors, breathable and lightweight fabrics and a more formal style. Embroidery and fine laces are also common in this country's culture.
While the weather is often humid and hot, it is not common for locals to wear shorts or sandals. Women often wear skirts, but these are often ankle length for a more conservative look. Women usually pair this with a lightweight blouse and a dressy shoe. Men usually wear sports wear in lightweight, loose-fitting fabrics. They often wear dress or business casual shoes instead of casual sandals or tennis shoes with their outfits.
