How do people dress in Spain? - the dress code in Spain, fashion in Spain

 

Dress codes
In general the Spanish have a very modern outlook on clothing. They are keen on designer clothes but quality is more important than a designer name. Spanish made clothes tend to be high quality and reasonably priced.

Teenage girls tend to wear trousers more than skirts. Denim is definitely 'in'. Teenage boys are keen on designer wear and appearance is important to them. Mature Spaniards dress conservatively and with style. Older men in particular tend to wear high quality clothing.

It is unclear what the Spanish think of scantily clad holiday-makers but it is not acceptable in small villages, away from the coast. One should be particularly careful of dress code if entering churches. Swim-wear and short skirts are frowned upon.

 

When visiting cities especially you may not want to look like a tourist. Dress conservatively.

 

Girls who wear mini-skirts and bikini tops will be frowned upon and will certainly attract unwanted attention. Long dresses or skirts are fine, as are trousers.

Men are discouraged from wearing shorts and football tops around the city. You will rarely see a Spaniard wearing football shorts in town although smart shorts are quite acceptable and common.

The beach and coastal resorts is different; it seems that less is best. Don't be surprised to see scantily clad girls of all ages in tiny bikinis and often topless. G-strings and thongs are in.

 

Thongs on men are out and frowned upon.

 

Business people in Spain wear suits, along with shirt and tie. If you are here on business then you would do well to dress the same, despite the heat. Short sleeve shirts are quite acceptable.

Spanish clothes shops stock a wide variety of clothes, as with any European country. On most high streets you will find top names such as River Island, Monsoon etc as well as some local shops that sell high quality clothing. On the coast you will find typical holiday maker shops where the quality of clothing may not be so good. Find out more about shopping in Spain here
